**** is really something with a decent cable, mine came with a very poor one. I'm using a hybrid 8 core type and this piece of music sounds amazing:

yeah, **** kick ass hard of N3 TBH.

Just can't put it out of my ears...its really the imaging and sens of space between instrument that WOW me hard. As well, it can deal with fast complex tracks...treble have good grip, perhaps some little upper mids sibilance but only with trebly source or tracks, but there lot of micro details without being overly harsh at all (im sensible to that) like, snare, clap, drum stick, everything sound right, clear...and, yep, classical sound fantastic with those, i would have buy them just for how good they make harpsichord sounding....but, they do MORE than that.

... Whats inside your XD-05, stock OPamp??

I have a XD-05 and it sure make a terrific pairing. Yep, need lot of juice...but why? 15ohm and around 100db...that really puzzly me. My confuse theory is that more a dynamic driver is small more its demanding about power. All tiny dd I have need lotta juice.

I bought an LME49720NA on ebay from a reliable seller. Perhaps the soundstage is a bit wider than with the stock one, but without a direct A/B comparison I cannot be sure about that.

Agreed. For earphones of their price, they offer great balance in detail and soundstage on one hand, and a fatigue free pleasant sound without piercing highs on the other hand.

In most cases, detail and sparkle = coping with sibilance and piercing highs. Not the case on the ****! Quite unique in this price segment. :)

I realized I critized the sound before - I just maaaybe compared the sound to over ear headphones too much. Oops. :p

How about **** vs C16 ?
So far, the **** sounds organic and transparent with excellent vocals and details, while the C16 sounds very lively, spacious, and extremely clear and detailed throughout the whole range with a VERY LARGE soundstage!
Love them both! :yum: ...but, the incredible details and large soundstage did it for me on the C16! So, while the **** is well worth its price range, I can say the same for the C16 at there price range as well!


Money saved in the bank! :handshake:

Nymphonomanic, this is obviously before the specified the burn in of the NiceHCK N3 correct? They do recommend a whole 200 hours of burn in before evaluation of the sound. I suppose your initial impressions of both suggests that the **** do sound better than the N3 though. What about the sound leak between the two?

Thanks

I've been using some unknown IEMs for over a week now, the Tanchjim Cora ($50), and I've really been hooked on their sound, with electronic music they are impressive: low area with very good punch and depth, clarity and unusual separation to be a dynamic driver. Soundstage equally remarkable.

Minimum weight and great comfort.

On the negative side: the cable is fixed and you need power to move it.

Has anyone else tried them?
