  sorry to barge into this thread, but has anyone tried the tennmak piano and the **** 4in1? how do they compare and which one would you recommend?
Piano is brighter overall than the 4in1 but doesn't have the harsh peak at 7kHz. The 4in1 has better detail but the Piano has loads of detail for a single dynamic. The bass on the Piano is definitely more satisfying - punchy with amazing sub-bass rumble. Piano works well with hip-hop and edm but if you're NOT into bright signatures you'd be better going with the Tennmak Pro which is an amazing IEM. The Pro has a warmer sound overall and no harshness whatsoever in the treble.

Thanks, this was really helpful. I think i might go with the piano purely because its cheaper but still sounds great. The only remaining question i have is how easy is it to drive? I don't have an amp so it would be straight out of my phone/laptop so its a bit of a deal breaker if it's hard to drive

  Hi, i currently own Shozy Zero & Somic v4 paired with Cayin N5, Both are very good IMHO. Is BK50 or BK35 or which one is better than my Zero? I read so many good reviews about those two. I'm little sensitive of high freq too.
 
I saw Remax RM-800MD too, duh so many gems....

both the bk50 and the shozy have a warmer signature--i personally prefer the bk50, which has a much bigger stage and more detail. i'm sure you'll be happy with it.

It's very easy to drive. Just keep in mind that it is bright! A few dollars more will get you the Pro which is a "safe" buy. But regardless, I still love the Piano.

The **** 4in1, truly, is a great iem

I've recently tried the boss HiFi b3 (fantastic)

And the ultimate UE
Please can you write bit more in details about the boss hifi b3,  and how you compare them with 4in1,  thanks.

If you are willing to stretch even further the SHOZY Lancea is only $99 at Penon Audio right now and its sound signature matches very well with what you're looking for.

It's also very small/highly portable.
 
Thanks for this, though I think it would be hard for me to look for this in my country, I'll try.
 
 
  To add to Peter's suggestion there's also the Cozoy Astrapi at $50 and Aegis at $110 which will plug direct to smartphone.
 
My recollection of the Astrapi was that it was quite bright though.
Thanks! though I think it wouldn't fit with my grado sr80e coz that alone is bright AF and it kinda irritates my ears sometimes HAHA

  Spotted these on Gearbest
 
http://www.gearbest.com/earbud-headphones/pp_448927.html
 
They're similar to the XE800 - same twisty nozzle but no U clip. The cable is different and there's other colours than white. Ordered a pair with little expectation, probably something to watch out for if they turn out to be poor compared to the Vivo.
I tried those. Vots: The nozzle is plastic and the diagphram flexes at the slightest movement. Bassy, unbalanced sound. They died on my colleage in 2months. Avoid

Someone asked me about the XE800's so I digged out my old pair (haven't used them for over a year) and I've got to say that with the current prices (given that the product is identical) these would be the best value overcome a use far. Iirc correctly I paid about $40 for my pair and would still consider them some of, if not the, best value among the over 100 IEM's that I own.

I'm a bit concerned that so many people describe them as bright though. I would never say that so maybe the old and new ones are not identical after all, did someone who has the old ones also purchased one of the cheap ones available now?

I liked them in the $40+ range myself as a bargain value. $18 and less is a must buy if neutral bass isn't an issue. It's an inexpensive taste of what $100-$180 sounded like a few years ago.

  Since the KZ hybrid has been somewhat of a disappointment, I wonder if anyone has ordered the Kinera hybrid? It's only $5 more than the ZST.

I hope it is true kinera and not renamed version of hotfi 800 from this seller
 Hotfi z800 is like the hybrid version of Ingping, muddy bass.
