    i am so surprised by aliexpress line of iems like the knock off for shure 846, anf then there iems with 10BA+ Dynamic

    did anyone try those iems , there are even iems with 18 BA

    i really want to buy something from Aliexpress, and my budget is up to 600 usd, now I want something that is really a great iem, did anyone buy those on alliexpress that are above 300 usd

    I have a 18ba from nicehck. Its actually the best iem I have ever heard. Better than Perfect Seal Lab Deca, NT6 Pro. Planning on getting the 10ba+1dd.

    They seem to be rather popular in china atleast.

    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: https://www.reddit.com/r/headphones...ed_to_try_my_luck_on_these_chinese_se846_diy/
    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?

    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:
