I had a similar experiences recently. On one occasion the package made it through customs in Seattle but then sat in a warehouse in Nevada for over a week. Another time a shipment made it to a terminal in Los Angeles and stayed there for a very long time, I think it was about 2 weeks.
Yep. My KS2 is sitting somewhere at the port of entry and has been for a month...

If you really want something, DHL upgrades on Ali usually cost about $30, otherwise right now is a crap show for epacket and Ali standard shipping.

Are there any other iems that has a driver setup ( 1 DD = bass, 1 BA = mids and 1 DD = treble) similar to the Sony IER Z1R?

Having a DD for bass and DD for treble sounds very interesting.
The most logical implementation of this design would be a coaxial 2DD+1BA. The 2DD uses a coaxial dynamic for bass and another for treble. Then add a nice midrange BA like a 29689 or 31005, a crossover, tuning and boom.

Thats why BQEYZ KB100 sounded so nice DD + BA + DD, Z1R formula lol..

It's interesting how inbound international shipments are treated, once they arrive into the U.S.
It would appear all of the recent hold overs in an international depot (for me, Monroe Township) are related to the USPS' modus operandi

It's like having a trebuchets from China to your door, when you keep the entire shipping process within one company.
DHL
"Shipment on hold" is probably due to the storm, no storm, "Isaiah"

So, the sharp and prominent peak at 8KHz on the Shozy Form 1.1 really bothers me on many songs at anything more than a mellow easy-listening volume. There are a lot of things I really do like about the 1.1, from the build, shape, size, comfort to the overall tonality. If only they didn’t feel the need to add a ton of “sparkle” to the treble. Well, with an MP tape mod (which doesn’t really target the 8KHz peak that well) in addition to foam ear tips, I find that it tames the peak enough for me to tolerate it at most listening levels. This really is a good IEM, but it has a ton of tough competition now, including the EA1, FD1, T2 Plus, and IT00.
I had a nice aftermarket IEM cable (hybrid copper / silver) from a prior IEM, replaced the stock one with it and also changed to wide bore silicon tips. The frequency balance now seems much more even, soundstage wider and a bit deeper, really a good quality sound w/o peakiness to my ears. YMMV.

I just received my new KBEAR KS2 earphones....and first impression after just a few minutes: they are great!!

I will have to compare the sound with my other IEM's, but right from the start these seem really, really good. Clear, dynamic sound. Punchy bass and nice highs.

I also love the stock cord. Easily the best quality cord I've gotten with an IEM. These earphones also look really stylish. And the tips fit perfectly. Great seal. Comfortable. Could not ask for better stock tips.

I'm really psyched with these and will provide a lengthier review in a couple of days.






I received some Blon BL03's a couple of weeks ago...it will be interesting to compare.
