    No, the one you posted is the Queen Love Maxi My Prince 3.

    This is the King Garden Pro Plus Exclusive Mini 2:

    Notice the emphasis on ‘Mini’, as opposed to the non-mini version.

    Mark my words. Guideray GR-i is gonna be popular if people realize how good it is.

    The shell looks very much like a TRN IM2. I wonder if TRN helped make it?

    the Nicehck, C16-3 16 Cores High Purity Copper Cable, w/NX7 termination is a perfect fit for the TFZ No. 3

    I actually stumbled upon that the other day while looking at cables on Aliexpress. It’s the only 3rd party cable that’s fully compatible with the TFZ connector that I’m aware of!

    3 Hours later, haven't pulled the Guiderays out of my ears. These are the real deal. If I paid $250 for these I wouldn't be disappointed. The tuning is just right for my tastes.

    It looks really elegant. But I saw from some initial reviews that the lower treble is a bit harsh, u find it so on your pair?
    I'm not really a fan of the lower treble/upper mid peak, which seems to be a common tuning signature in CHIFI IEMs.

    same boat with you, because of harman target is peak on 3khz, but some follow harman target with modification, additional dip right on around 3khz, this type of signature suits me well.

    Supposedly, the reason that so much of ChiFi is tuned with elevated upper midrange is that Chinese audiophiles prefer this.

    It would be interesting (and probably humbling) to find out what the ratio is between sales in China vs. world, for IEMs.

    Actually i had some audiophile friends and earphone shopkeepers tell me these budget CHIFI companies purposely tune up the upper mid range to give an increased percieved amount of details.

    I personally think that may be true for the earlier KZs like KZ6 but lately the CHIFI tuning is getting better in terms of details without needing to resort to this.
    Yeah i guess u are right about their local consumers preferring a bright upper midrange.

    if 3khz boost = following harman target
    if 4khz boost = to perceive "fake details & clarity

    i prefer a bit dip on 3khz section, a lot of TOTL iems company do this
