    Do you guys expect that on 11/11 there will be a bigger sale than the 3$ coupon right now? Not in a hurry to buy the blon bl03, so if It will save more than 3$ on 11/11 then I will wait. (also waiting for the new Tanchjim Oxygen)

    Haha at the rate CHIFI is churning out hypetrains and affordable IEMs, there'll probably be another flavour of the week hypetrain that comes out by 11/11.

    The BLON BL-03 is already at $25.50 (cheapest option on AE with voucher used), even if 11/11 is cheaper, it'll probably be a few more dollars savings at most.

    I'm anticipating the new Tanchjim oxygen too, but it'll probably be expensive at launch (not sure if it'll be discounted for 11/11 or launch before then).

    It'd have to be a LOT better than the BL03 for that £££. All the IEMs I own and I do all of my listening on the two Bl03 and BL01s. Mind I've an MH755 and an EDR1 on the way for a bit of budget BL01 - mh755 - EDR1 - ED9 - The banned one - comparison. So far the BL01 takes it, just.

    Yeah we can buy almost 20 BLON BL-03s for 1 updated Tanchjim Oxygen LOL.
    Definitely there's laws of diminishing returns the higher up you go in the audio world. But if the BL-03 can gives 70 - 80% sound quality of the new Tanchjim Oxygen, I'll be very satisfied already.

    Man what a facepalm.

    As it is the BLON 03 is already a better sound than Tanchjim IMO and these are tuned by the same person right? I'd buy the BLON before they get some crazy idea about discontinuing it, creating a new model with the known appealing tuning and trying to make more money. This limited run stuff just fuels the paranoia as it is straight out of the books of audiophile company marketing models.

    Sony EX1000 can cost double it's original price now if mint in box. Because it was discontinued. Limited runs just accelerate the whole process.

    Buying 2 more.
    1 for the ChiFi meets hiFi Apocalypse and another to crack open. I exchange units with companies often and they can change tuning a lot without changing shell or filter. Try cracking it open and creating one using a better fitting shell and if that and filter experimenting does not work i lost $30 but i still got 2 :wink:

    At the moment I am trying to find the very cheapest IEM that satisfies my inner audiophile. ED9 comes very close and is only £8 but so far nothing below £10 quite does it.

    It's a fun distraction. I've got the hifi for the endgame.
