    Apologies for delay in thanking you guys for this. Been out of range.
    Thanks! I’ll explore. Expensive though the Spinfits aren’t they. I’ve been using the MH755’s tips which are pretty good for the Blon03 but always like to look at other options.

    I use those Sony tips (orange ones) on my Blons and find them perfect. Spinfits are weird. Some of them have a very thin silicone (I don’t like those) and the ones I got with my Campfire Comet has a thicker silicone. (Like Final tips) which I really like. I have no idea what model those are.

    I think most of my Spinfits were $5-$6 per pair on aliexpress. I order then with other things from the same seller so that they ship a bit faster.

    It's just a joke right?? Every wireless set I have tried turned out in a deception.

    Nothing beats wired to me.

    You guys regonize?? Cleaning up my desk and found a little surprise...forgot I have them.
    The TRN V20`s under pile of dust.

    Actually still sounds well bit too recessed vocals though.

    Not a joke. I am mostly using wireless now even at home.

    Same here. Around 80% of my daily use would be wireless. For my usage with spotify, the difference in sound is negligible, but the added mobility is significant. Heck, even with my wired earphones, I'm using them with bluetooth DACs :k701smile:

    I have a strange question here...for old members of this group.


    How is it birth? Where did it appear first?

    I ask this cause a dude from The Verge wanna interview me about ChiFi world.

    Not like im clueless, but about when, why and where this terminology appear....i can't tell...even if i'm into ChiFi since 6 years.
  9. voicemaster
    Ever since they keep popping out new iems every week I guess hahaha.
  10. NymPHONOmaniac
    Yeah....but KZ do this for age even before the ChiFi hype begin....I guess this term should be in Slang Urban dictionnary by now hehe but it isnt. About KZ since i dont even know when this Knowledge Zenith company was born. hum...

    I think I first saw it when little Tripath T-Amps we're all the rage. I bought quite a few many years ago.

    The why is just a slang nickname to quickly and easily describe HiFi products from China. Hence the name ChiFi (as in Chinese HiFi).

    In IT, there are Chinese Cisco clone networking equipment, nicknamed Chisco. Again, a play on words (as in Chinese Cisco).

    And of course Chinglish, which is a play on wires to describe ‘Chinese English’.

    These nicknames are in no way meant to be disrespectful or derogatory, or to convey it as an inferior adjective (at least the way I view it).

    As far as who originally started using ChiFi, I don’t know. I know it’s been referred to as that for many years now.

    I VENERATE the Spring1....and wonder too why the hype do not grow. But don't worry it will.
    To my ears, and from what I test, they are my favorite sub-200$ iem.
  15. Slater
    I have a few of them. It’s actually the only upgrade cable from TRN that gets my rec. They’re not high end or anything, but they are well made and perfectly fine for the asking price.
