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

  1. demo-to
    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.

    well how come only the cheap stuff get mentioned here, while mid priced iems barley get mentioned in this thread
  4. Sound Eq
    thanks the main reason is to try those insane 18 BA iems, as that is out of norm in drivers count or the 10BA + DD, but no info what so ever. For me to try those chinese iems is to get things that are not found in other companies. But its a big gamble due to lack of any feedback

    Because no one is willing to buy them, or they have their own thread already.

    I still cannot decide which one to buy Toneking Ninetail or Macaw GT600S any advice ?
  7. Sound Eq
    so which ones are a safe buy for great sound quality, as to be honest paying over 300 usd for something with no feedback what so ever is non sense

    They are UIEM

    Lol same conundrum here...only I'm leaning towards the 9T because I'd rather have the 600 Pro. It's in my cart right now. MUST. RESIST.

    The Brainwavz B400 is getting a lot of great reviews. Haven't got my pair yet but at least there's plenty of information about them and most of them are very positive.

    Some news for fans of the MEMT X5: new model MEMT R7 hybrid coming soon. I'll be able to give early impressions within a week or two, along with the X5s (upgraded X5).

    Should I get a KQZ W1 Pro with 11.11 or you have another pair of iem with memory wires under 13$ with the 11.11?
    already have KZ ATES and ZS3

    I have no idea about most of those inexpensive bazillion-driver AlieExpress IEMs - some could be really good, some could be quite good, and some could suck quite a bit, and as the ancient saying goes, "more drivers don't automatically mean better sound".

    Any suggestions for nice mmcx (optionally balanced) wires?
