Separate names with a comma.
I've always wondered how official those official stores really are....not much is my guess.
I will compare the BA5 with two all-BA IEMs I have:
BA5 vs CCA C16: BA5 is smoother and not as bright in the upper mids/lower treble. BA5 has more bass presence and sounds warmer, but is still linear in nature. Detail retrieval is similar but the BA5 is more revealing of layers. C16 has a colder overall character.
BA5 vs CCA A10: A10 is very bright but not harsh and digs up lots of detail but is once more cold in character. There is an emphasis in lower treble which can become fatiguing. BA5 is more balanced with a midrange which is a tad forward but across a wide range so sounds more well balanced. BA5 has a warmer bass and is easier on the ear. Both A10 and C16 can be considered analytical whereas I find the BA5 more musical. BA5 with Spiral Dots (size M) is very comfortable, the two CCA models are bulkier and need more work to fit well. I hope this helps.
They’re so official, it’s officially official.
Just ordered one. At least the packaging looks nice. The shipping cost was a bit high though (~2.5 euros).
Guys I have a confession to make...
After reading several very positive reviews on the Shuoer Tape, I got so incredibly horny that I couldn't resist the temptation...
But then the inner chi-fi addict in me finally won and I bought the Shuoer Tape!!! HORRUH!!!
Like oh my god, the Tape is virtually everything I have ever wanted from an IEM.
Thick punchy bass that's suitable for EDM? Check!
Warm mids that has good weight and also has good transparency? Check!
Crisp clear vocals that seems to stay within a safe area (unlike the Kanas Pro)? Check!
A relaxed treble response that still manages to sound incredibly airy and detailed in the upper range? Check!
And to top it all off, a huge soundstage that actually projects out of your head? Check check and check!
Although despite hearing some dissenting opinions about the Tape from certain non-sponsored individuals on places such as reddit, I still firmly believe the Tape would adhere to my preferences better. Even if it turns out to not be my ideal sound, I'm sure it will hit very close to that ideal. Plus BGGA said that this was by far the most detailed IEM he had ever heard, which is great. Currently my most expensive IEM is the Kanas Pro. I dislike the Kanas Pro because of its average detail retrieval (in the treble), and thus average transients. Everything sounds "dumbed down" or simplified with my KP, although with good natural tonality and excellent imaging. Hopefully the Tape will make an excellent upgrade to my KP whom I have ambivalent feelings towards.
If you can't find it... probably not.
Hi Friend,this is Wendy from KB EAR.We released a new earphone:KB EAR Diamond.
It is presale now.it used Diamond-like carbon (DLC) coated PET.
I really like the looks of this earphone and I expect good things from the sound too. I'm looking forward to it.
thank you, friend. The sound will also surprise you.
I have pre-ordered as I love surprises (and I trust the tuner)!
Tge shuoer tape ate very good. Found treble a little sharp to begin with but with 100+ hours. Found the mids recessed but added 3mm foam behind the grill and works very nicely
Buying the tape from AE instead of Amazon : biggest 2019 chi-fi mistake.
I write my impressions about TRN BA5 on TRN thread here https://www.head-fi.org/threads/trn-impressions-thread.881761/page-116#post-15360153
Costs less on aliexpress. The only time I use Amazon is if the cost is the same or less. Why would you tell someone who is happy about the deal they got that they made a mistake.? I have had no problems with that store.
