Chinese / Asian Brand IEM Info Thread

    Both cost about twice as much so it's not outdated imo.

    I think the real competition would be the meizu otg dac that can decode DSD 128 natively (if that matters for one) and costs the same (even a bit less actually)

    Personally not enclined to pay 50€ or more for an otg dac, I only use these things when there's nothing better around, at home I have good daps, if I take a plane too, at work I'd rather have a real dac/amp so saving for that, otg dacs are for waiting at the doctor and listening music or watching youtube without hiss and scritches from my 3.5mm phone out, so I'm not going to obsess over 192 vs 48khz tbh (can't hear a difference in perfect conditions anyway)

    I have heard a rumour about a new TRN earphone with 5BA per side. Has anyone else heard about this?

    Posted by another headfier as above. It's a 5BA set unimaginatively called the TRN BA5 LOL.
    Hot on the heels of their TRN V90 release. I hope it will be more TRN V90 than TRN X6.

    Edit: BTW it's already stealth released in a few aliexpress shops at $60 USD, but seems some are offering it at $50 USD (fan exclusive discount).

    I cancelled my Blon 03 purchase. HEY, WHY NOT? The Audiosense T100 with the copper AS cable sounds too good not too listen to more. :wink:

    I heard another rumour that another brand borrowed a pre-production model earphone from TRN and then put it out under their own name (maybe with a few changes). This new TRN may be to combat that. :wink:

    I can't find it now either, but if I remember correctly it was the same shell as the T160 but with a dynamic driver.

    This is the TRN BA5's FR from the aliexpress shops. The usual CHIFI 2 - 4 khz peak is there, I'm not a fan of it, cause the peak is quite fatiguing for myself. But of course graphs don't tell the full story, so let's wait for early reviews.

    looks like they are trying to emphasizing mids now, with 400-500hz boost, so its more like W shaped with not much bass, not an ordinary move from TRN. well, same 3khz peak is a deal breaker for me, too many past IEM with that, i certainly i dont want that, 1 of big reason of passing Shuoer Tape for me.

    Thanks!

    Something to share: after 250hr GuideRays GR-i68 have no sibilance at all. It's amazing what those earphones makes with one BA & DD. Cheers

    You have to search with a space between audio and sense- "audio sense T100"

    I like the look of that copper cable, and it's one of a few with angled mmcx connectors, which are useful for wearing noise cancelling headphones above earphones. I messaged the AS store to ask if they will make a 2.5mm version, and they said they are working on it, but it probably won't release until next year.

    Anyone want to help me spend some money? Lol.

    Selling my Bog Oak Hifiman 560s and a few other things so I can buy one or two new sets of IEMs.

    Here's the criteria.

    I don't want to use a DAP or an amp, unless it's some sort of OTG cable thing. It's too much hassle for me. I know I know.

    I am using a Samsung S9 but will be getting an S10+ in a few months.

    I am also using UAPP, which I love.

    I love my LZ A4s and LZ A5s, but you know, time for an upgrade.

    I'm looking at the Tin P1s, Shuoer Tapes, BLON BL-03s and a few other random things.... Budget is probably €200-300...i suppose I could go higher... But I'd prefer not too.

    Open to any and all suggestions.

    I will use them for a bit of critical listening... And for a LOT of listening to modern sounding pop. Though my other main genre is... Classical.... So... I know.

    And btw I went through my box of KZs... I have 30 pairs of KZ headphones... Lol... What was I thinking.
