    Sounds like a winner.

    I think as long as the Zircon is listed on Audiobudget as 5-star, people are going to keep buying them not knowing they are not deserving of that rating. I'm sure 2 years from now there will still be people buying the Zircon thinking they must be stellar, only to be dissapointed when they receive them.

    I know that's where many if not all of the Zircon purchases in the year (or 2) have been coming from.

    They really need to be bumped down to a 3.5/5 on that site IMO. There's sooo much better stuff out there now.

    I was one of those people who bought it (albeit super cheap, at least) because of his 5 star rating and full recommandation. As soon as I got them and fired up some songs, I was immediately disappointed. They sounded absolutely horrendous and gross compared to my RE400 and Urbanfun Hifi. They came off as a hollow and poorly-executed v-shaped signature. I thought I had bad ears or something because of how much people practically worshipped them. The only thing they’re good for are their nice eartips. Otherwise, they’re stuck in drawer hell for the foreseeable future.

    Yea. The form factor, sound quality and software are great at its price point.

    im looking for some iems with a higher impedance (more than 32ohm).

    Slightly over your budget ($29) and an earbud, but the HE 150Pro (150 ohms) is excellent value: https://penonaudio.com/he-150pro.html

    Do you mean iem or earbud?

    Yeah, no way near 5. 3.5 looks good.

    Tips are nice. Craftsmanship is good too. But the sound is not up to the others in same bracket.

    I picked that earbud up and wasn't impressed, might need a burn in or new tips(don;'t know what)
    but it didn't sound very good
    weird shape too.

    Not sure if it's a quality issue, personal preference or something else but I think it sounds very good for the money. Maybe it's to do with ear anatomy - I find that earbuds change sound drastically depending on insertion depth and angle etc. I use mine with the stock foams.

    If you start wearing them sideways, you'll get more consistency.

    Just got my FD01. Will give a short impression of it soon. Maybe a comparing between FW01 and FX1100 as well!

    I am considering the QKZ DM300 which is 96 Ohm and has a good rating on Vidal's site. I want a higher impedance IEM for the Zishan Z2, which reportedly has a higher impedance output. It's only $6.01 at Fasttech. Unfortunately, I still haven't seen any reviews on the DM300 paired with the Z2.
