Well, those are over $100 and "good' is not really good and as you mentioned the distortion. Is that the one where the dynamic version of it was more favored? I did say forgettable and those actually seem to fit the bill as one we have forgotten. Still don't think we have had a real good under $100 BA equipped modelI know Mifo07 BA version is a single BA that sounds good and not bass heavy. But at higher volume, the driver do distort on certain low to mid low frequency. But it is quite old now and doesn't have any new features whatsoever. Just a good battery life, decent call quality and connection.
Cheaper armatures have problem extending on both ends, distortion and or peakiness at higher volumes. Even if tuned well they kinda fade at the high and low ends still and are never really good. There are good single armatures and armature based earphone. My avatar is one but it is a $200 earphone. Not sure how they can put a good armature and tune it well and do all the other stuff and come in for the $99. Not a surprise we haven't seen a really good one. Though this came off more that we have no tiny inexpensive earphones being really good and not so much about armatures. I would like one of those with a good driver(of any type) and SQ.
