    They look fancy, but not yet (?)

    First impressions of the SIVGA SV002 is that they are a bright headphone. It's still relatively balanced, but it's a bit sibilant in and around the 8 kHz to 10 kHz regions. If you're using an AMP/DAC, this shouldn't be an issue, since you can just EQ. Other than that, they are a great sounding headphone with a quality build, feel, and awesome case. Overall, they're a keeper and have a different flavor than I'm accustomed to. And yes, they EQ extremely well, which I find to be commonplace when working with Beryllium plated drivers.

    The Archgon Delicato is still the more revealing headphone, especially in the mid range, and is the best sounding sub-$100 Chi-Fi headphone that I've personally demoed (my taste is a bit on the warm side).

    I have to say, those 002 look gangster, all murdered out black... I have wondered how they sound.

    They are built as good as they look. Have them hooked up via USB connection to my FiiO E17K Alpen 2 at 96/24 and they sound amazing. Just a little downward tweak to the treble and it's quite lovely indeed.

    NOPE! But sounds very interesting. Hadn't realized they were coming out with a planar yet. I do know they are trying to come up with their own lineup instead of re-badging the Bosshifi lineup. So wouldn't be surprised if they came out with some planars.

    I see they have them listed on their product pages though. Although the pictures for them look like renderings at this point in time, and I don't see them for sale anywhere.

    Just found these 'Sharkk Bravo' Headphones going on amazon for only $30, which seems quite a deal as their original price was much higher. I was wondering how they compare to other headphones below $100.

    I know people seem to watch Zeos' videos for fun, but the demo shows them in pretty unfavourable light (foul language warning):

    Yeah, that's the only reference to them I found, too. :-/

    The negative reviews are pretty harsh.

    I tend to pay more attention to negative reviews than positive ones. Because it's very easy to drum up a million fake positive reviews - just send people a free product, or a discount, or have friends and family do it. But fake negative reviews are much less common. And that Sharkk sure has a high ratio of negative ones.
    • "Rebadged headphones from asia, you did not make nothing. Sleazy Sharkk company. Just a rebadge Verisonix N500 & N501 from taiwan."
    • "Check the indiegogo page. Many investors demanding refunds for poor quality."
    • "Save your money. They are rattly and they feel like they are ready to fall apart. I was really disappointed."
    • "I'll just regift them and let them be someone else's problem"
    • "I wanted to see if they sounded as good as the reviews claimed. Well, they sound terrible!"
    For the same or less money you can get a pair of Akai Project 50X or Philips SHL3300. I have multiples of both, and they are the real deal.

    I read those negative reviews, but most of them seem to be from the era when it was priced at $250. Since the marketing compared them to Stax and all (lol). The reviews at $30 seem to fairly positive, except the build quality. Well, I have my friend going to US. I'll see if he can pick em up, along with the Akai. If he is able to smuggle two headphones back, haha.

    PS: I started my chi-fi tryst with Soundmagic, the ultra budget earphone Es18. Since then, I have bought E30, E10, E80 in-ears and P30 on-ears. All of them were good for the price, before the coming of the hybrid trend. And till date, E80 still hold the crown for the best earphone I have; the sound signature is almost perfect to my liking. Even if other earphones are technically better (Tinaudio T2) Well, all I have are budget earphones under $50 though. :p
    Soundmagic is quite a big brand and they seem to have quite a strong presence outside China.
    I am honestly a fanboi. :D

    Hey, I’m a soundmagic fan myself. I have the HP150, and HP200, and I used to have a pair of e10c IEMs.

    They make good stuff, although their hinge design on their full size headphones is seriously flawed and needs to be changed to be more robust.
