Chinese / Asian Brand IEM Info Thread

    Isn't there something cheaper. Let's say for 100-150 bucks with better details and scene?

    Owners of the Banned seller V2, are front vents on your copies in a different position, too? It’s weird. Like, the left IEM’s vent is centered and the right one is slightly lower.

    a new brand and model brought up on the discovery thread, Ikko OH1

    crin: "pretty dang impressive. Thought it was going for a much higher than what it was priced. Clean hybrid sound and solid sub-bass focus, though BA timbre is coming in a little obvious at times."

    usd$139 on penon and also up on amazon for those interested to take the plunge:


    the brand is also eager to promote their debut model, hopefully them and other new brands like the dB Monroe send review units out

    Sorry, you didn’t say how high of a price range.

    There’s definitely some choices in that price range. I don’t have much in that price range, so I’ll let others that own gear in that tier some recommendations.

    Checkout the Magaosi K5 - $137 on BF sale in AliEx.

    Wow that’s a killer deal. I paid $200 for mine!

    It is going to come down to fit and preference as the two are kissing cousins from an FR standpoint.

    The EartechTriple is very similar to the Kc2 in a more refined package with a bit more detail. I should have some exciting news from them shortly regarding universals. They have been working on tuning 2 models and are in beta now. More when my NDA expires.

    I don’t have the KC2, but I do have the K2 (which shares the same shell).

    I can say with certainty that I’d take the K2/KC2 over the T2 for fit any day.

    The fit of the T2 is terrible (on my ears). The offset mmcx hump just doesn’t like my ear, and the only way I can wear the T2 is switching L and R and wearing then up. And even then I wish the nozzle was longer to space the shell away from my ear even more.

    I have some Spinfits in the way, which I’m hoping will address the situation as the cores are long.

    Yes. The left vent is at 3 o'clock and the right at 10 o'clock. They do sound amazing though!

    Do you notice a slight channel imbalance to the right? I swear I do. And if I swap the IEMs left to right, the imbalance shifts accordingly. A QC issue, perhaps?

    No, the balance is perfect on mine. Do you get the same imbalance with another set of IEMs?

    Haven’t tried yet, I’ve only started noticing it today. I’ll check my Hifiman RE-400 later, maybe it’s just me.

    I'm wondering which one has more sub bass without sacrificing overall sound quality comparing to KZ AS10. Any clue?
  15. Wiljen
    Closest to neutral with more solid sub-bass is the KB100. Most like AS10 with a bit more life to it is BQ3.
