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

  1. Sound Eq

  2. Metalboyy
    They are not very popular here.
  3. Sound Eq
    i do not see them being mentioned anywhere on english sites
  4. Metalboyy
    They seem to be rather popular in china atleast.
  5. Sound Eq
    still this is headfi and many Chinese companies made it over here on headfi, so if they were so great I am sure someone would just mentioned a word or two about them

    Linky link?

    Are they UIEM or CIEM?

    There's a review of a 846 clone here:
    I've seen DIY models copying the LPF design of the 846 even

    If I get the TFZ exclusive king, is getting the tin audio t2 redundant?
  9. Sound Eq
    do those 18 ba really sound good, or are they just throwing in ba's without any knowledge

    i am very suspicious if they have the experience in tuning those iems

    i once was recommended to buy chinese brand iems, like sendiy and it was awful

    I have the niceHCK Dz7 hybrid. It’s - to my ears - an abject failure. The bass is non existent with a thin and reedy sounding midrange ( sucked out ). The only redeeming factor that I can think of is that it has a nice enough treble with enough extensive and it’s pretty damn comfortable
    To wear.

    thanks and that is what i expected, as its not just throwing in drivers, its all about tuning which makes an iem great sounding

    when i see 18 BA on aliexpress, yes at first it can be tempting, but man those if tuned bad it will be a huge waste of money

    They can tune and they do have the tool to (couplers, dummy head, ...). It's just they sometimes decide to make some bat**** insane thing for no reason.

    I'm tempted by a few things, such as the Toneking Ninetail, and the Macaw GT600s Pro... But. Also, the Kinera H3 is only $70!

    But I might be getting the Sony EX1000 here in a few days and I'm very intrigued by the Magoasi K5 so I should probably hold off and just pick up a cable or something. :thinking:

    I had the SD6 6BA a couple of days and I found them not bad at all with slightly enhanced but punchy and speedy mid bass and overall good clarity and much details. But the mids and highs tuning did not meet my expectations looking for a neutral and natural IEM. The SD6 is very coloured there. I have no graph but think of many peaks and dips. Unharmounious.
    If you consider to spend this amount of money in a Multi BA I would suggest the Brainwavz B200 ever over the 6BA. But these you don't get on Aliexpress 11/11 :wink:

    First time posting in this thread. Looking for some cable-down earbuds! Any recommendations around the $20 range? I'd like to take advantage of the 11/11 sales on ali/gearbest.

    I have my eye on the Boarseman CX98 for ~$14 but I have no idea if that's a sale or not. My current favorite IEMS are my KZ ZS5 v1s, so a sound signature similar to that would be nice. I like mids!

    edit: bought CX98s and MEMT X5s for $25 total or so.
