Amazon has been a far better hunting ground for decent earphones than Aliexpress and Gearbest of late: -
  • Winingtone RG EB301
  • EM-I C880 or whatever the seller decides to call them
  • ADAX HT06
  • Fonge T01
I've had a few duds - Dodocool DA131, Baseus etc. but more and more decent earphones are popping up on there. Slight premium over Ali but you get them so much quicker.

Amazon has definitely been impressive.

wondering if there's anything out there that'll give a less v-shaped experience than the ZS5. It's hard to deny the somewhat "hollow" sound they have in comparison to my P1.

I'm just saying the RE00 has better micro-details in the mids than the P1. but P1 is more refined in every other way.
I havn't heard the Mini2

IMO that's just because the RE00 (I had the 400 but they're the same thing) has sharper treble. It's not that it's resolving, the "details" are just more readily apparent. The P1's bass is beefier, so that can mask the details a bit.

Fair call, for me P1 is quite stunning for what they pulled off for the price and will surely be an upgrade with a similar signature of the Hifiman.
Seems like a solid choice for Bastrirula.

Too difficult to order for most of us?

Not really sure what you are meaning LOL. I just rather order gear from Amazon than AE

That would be great but you can't order them from there. Only from Taobao which a lot are unwilling to do. Otherwise Crab would not be a cult of one.

I understand now what you meant. I wouldn't say the lack of purchase of it is difficult, its because in this thread anything over $50 is getting spendy and cheaper gear is more popular. Plus Veedix apparently has this one product only and many are unwilling to purchase something of that nature based on one users review, despite Crab being a very solid reviewer.

Its not only on TaoBao, its on AE
