Chinese / Asian Brand IEM Info Thread

    Already recommended these in another thread but the qdc Neptune is a great buy, even if it’s price range is a little competitive. I didn’t keep it due to comfort but it sounds great and looks lovely (blue). Neutral, smooth, musical, natural, detailed, soundstage, pacing, bass extension.. all noteworthy.

    All you guys need to exercise a little self restraint. I might start a business, Headfi Anonymous. You come to me anonymously, I counsel you, you send me all your
    IEMs and gear and I whittle it down to just ONE piece of gear in each category and send it back. For every new piece you buy, you replace the one you have with it and send it to me.
    How's that sound? :wink:

    That is a very well thought out plan. You might need to rent a truck and collect ours. I cannot carry it all the way to the post office.

    That's an interesting device, the socket saver. U got any link for it?
    And does it in any way degrade the audio quality?

    The one I have is discontinued but I will share a photo of what I am talking about. I was using this for a different reason. One of my daps did not like one of my iems that had a mic so this allowed it to just connect as though there was no mic. Later I found a setting that fixed the issue. I have another one similar to this that I do keep on my desk amp. It is a 6.35mm plug into the amp with 3.5mm socket for my iems and buds and headphones that use 3.5mm. I remove it for the rare headphone that only has a 6.35mm plug. I like having the short length of cable rather than just a solid adapter because I think there is less stress on the jack. I don't worry about sound degradation. I would rather not drive myself crazy with those thoughts.

    i used to be like that, listening sessions with more than one earphones on the table, keeps swapping and comparing to find different nuances in the mix. now I'm trying to limit it to one and just enjoy a full album or two. it's hard at first, but it's less frantic and more calming session :ksc75smile:

    maybe it's time to invite Marie Kondo to the house? :dt880smile::dt880smile:

    but honestly, a picture of piling audio gears won't horrify a Headfi members.. i think it would be more like a motivational nudge!

    I would have to make it neater first:)

    If I listened to Marie Kondo I would still have the audio gear and lots of stuffed animals and clocks but I would have almost no clothes. Nothing gives me "joy" when I clothes shop.

    Wrong thread but does anyone know if planar headphones are affected by the magnets that are used for attaching the Antlion Modmic?

    Agreed, I get rid of the audio gear that doesn't give me joy (unless I can't sell it). Hardly anything else gives me joy to be honest.

    You and panda have a gear list that I'm sure most of us are both extremely jealous of and conversely makes us point to you and say, "SEE, at least I don't have THAT big of a problem!".

    As a side note, my gear list is getting to the point where it can no longer exist in my signature.... Soon it will need a link. And also, I genuinely need it to keep inventory of what I have rather than JUST to brag and/or let people know what my reference points are.

    Where does drop ship their product from? is it the US? Can I contact them and tell them to write lower price on the package since my country charges an absurd amount of tax from it? If I buy the Thieaudio Phantom will they ship it right away or do I have to wait weeks before they even send it away?

    Unfortunately Drop will not alter price on the package
