Chinese / Asian Brand Info Thread (Portable Headphones and IEMs)

  1. Wiljen
    Went 0 for 2 on a couple of Borofone models. 1st has a terrible channel imbalance (like 30dB) and the 2nd the right channel drops out about every 30-60 seconds. My advice would be look elsewhere. So far the best of the cheapie 2 piece bluetooth sets has been the syllable d9. The riversong air x2 isnt bad but sounds pretty compressed/recessed compared to the D9. I've got 4 more of the micro bluetooth sets coming (2 SmartOmi and a QCY and a TWS model) so maybe one of those will be a gem.

    Thus far, bluetooth utopia has been elusive to say the least.

    Cant say for the K3 HD.. Too poor now :p The A4 is still my fav IEM, to my ears the K3 Pro has a similar shaped V, but not as resolving as the A4...

    Have you receive your K5 ,??

    TK11 is a less refined sounding TK12 which isn't very refined sounding in the first place. Really coloured sound which is good or bad, depending on how you hear at it.

    By "refined" do you mean balanced/neutral/uncolored?
  6. Skullophile
    Refined is like a high end prossie, unrefined is akin to an old haggard transvestite street walker with cheap drugs squeezing through the veins flicking bottle caps at you telling you that that's the colour you are after.

    Or unrefined is like slapping drivers in a shell and calling it a day.

    Ex 5 more lows than king ?
  8. B9Scrambler
    Similarly great extension with more mid-bass umph, and in general just more low end emphasis.

    And smaller foot print

    The Syllable D9x looks interesting:

    And it's promising that you like it's little brother (Syllable D9).

    haha, priceless comparison

    nope, still no sign of a couple good ones I am waiting on. Story of life all the bills arrive on-time but all the good stuff takes 3 extra weeks to show up.

    The SD6 6BA iem is sales at $115, very tempting. Is it good?

    I also looked at Magaosi K5, but it doesn't have discount for 11.11

    Anyone knows whats close to the sound of Ostry Kc06A?
    After owning so many pairs of Chinese IEM's I still can't find a better version of it XD

    To owners of the Kc06A, how would you describe the sound signature of it?
    Would you consider them warm?

    I find them balanced with the right bump in bass and huge headspace, just makes any music I listen to sound so good
    Even though they are just a single dynamic driver I have yet to find any budget hybrids that win it.
    Unfortunately the cable on mine is cracking away, If yours are not cracked yet I'd suggest wiping the oils away from them after use to extend its service life as the material for the cables are bad
