BEST Sub-100$ CHINESE EARPHONES - Hidden Gems, Best deals and impressions sharing-REFERENCE LIST

    That's too bad. The GT600s is one of my fav 100 USD earphones. Hilistening HLS-S8 sounds awesome and it one of the better sounding 100 USD earphones I've got, but they feel cheap for the price. The cable really sucks (thin, poor strain relief and MMCX cutting out ootb). If you can find them on sale they'd be worth it pending you have your own cable and tips to use.

    Here's my review of the King: https://thecontraptionist.blog/2017/05/12/tfz-exclusive-king-the-king/

    thinksound MS02 or Meze 12 Classics are also quite good for under 100 bucks.

    I have the VSD5s, which is similar to the VSD3s.

    One common complaint I see about the Vsonic a lot is the cable going bad after a while. My 1st pair of VSD5s had a bad cable right out of the box and I had to exchange it.

    With the ZS5, you have removable (and upgradeable) cables.

    Gearbest has the ZS5 on sale for $13usd right now, which is a steal in comparison to the VSD3s.

    Thanks Slater for your advice,

    yes i have the KZ ZS5 from gearbest arriving these weeks for 13 euro.... so that is already done.
    Thinking of just adding another pair of sub 22 euro's (that's sub 26 dollars ) earbuds...
    Tke KZ ZS6 is only 27 euro now.... tempted...but not sure if there is a better one then the KZ6 ?

    Grey color only (with no mic). But the price is bonkers, so who cares what color it is.

    It's unknown whether it's ZS5 v1 or v2. I think it's safe to assume that most stock at Gearbest is v2 now. I think the v1 are all long gone.

    Assuming you are going to receive the ZS5 v2, it's very similar to the ZS6. So unless you really like the color choices or the metal housing of the ZS6, then you may want to try something else just to mix it up.

    As far as what, not sure. I do like the Vsonic vsd5s (similar to the vsd3s), but there is so much good gear out now it can make your head spin. Maybe someone else has a better recommendation?

    I don't have the Tin Audio T2, but I see it recommended all the time (read reviews on HF). The T2's regular price is double your stated budget, but I'm pretty sure it's on sale a lot cheaper for the 11.11 sale (especially with multiple stacked coupons and such).

    Anyone want to chime in?

    No clue, but it looks identical to others I've seen with the same shell, same "DC" style plug, driver specification, and same color selections.

    It would not surprise me if that was "private label" manufactured for them by someone else. You see that a lot with ChiFi.

    Guys, I need help deciding which of the following to buy : Final Audio Design E3000, 1More Triple Driver or the KZ ZS6.
    I just want a really good sound... Also open to suggestions about other pairs, preferably in a similar price range.

    Maybe Auglamour RT-1? So far it appears to be a seriously good value and it's quite affordable tomorrow. (1More is kinda dated at this point due to the speed of the market, ZS6 has potential treble issues, E3000 looks fragile but is probably the best sounding one out of these 3. Auglamour is a bit of a question mark as there aren't any professional reviews right now, although previous Auglamour products have been nice and RT-1 brings some amazing driver configuration at a good price)
