    Is your MIFO BA or DD?

    I have the BA version (TFZ X1) and would like to know if thats the one you compared.

    Decided to bite the bullet on the Jabees Firefly Pro. If all goes will it will mean byebye to the Jabra 65t and Galaxy Buds (which I was considering until I saw that 200$ CAD price and the lack if discounts since launch)...
    Those Chi-Fi units aren't fully USB-C, they just use the Type C connector and only charge through a Type A connection. It only costs a bit more to implement but the smaller OEMs may be unwilling to invest. Add this to the fact that Chi-Fi brands are getting their shells and cases pre-made and likely won't invest in redesigning them. A true Type C to Type C connection that supports PD costs considerably more and I'm not sure who has implemented this aside from bigger companies like Sony. It makes all the difference if you are using a Macbook or Google Pixel (though I personally don't fall under either of these categories).

    As pointed out by others AT did announce that new True Wireless recently, but my quip is that it's branded as a bass-tuned product and we'll probably need to wait another year or two for more products. I hate to say it but AT is like the Nintendo or Canon of headphones - they have some innovative ideas but fall short due to some old-school conservative or proprietary decision. Sony on the other hand tends to be cutting edge but their QC and materials isn't always up to par with their tech (AT is notorious for creaking hinges, but outside of IM70 I find the QC of their drivers quite reliable).

    Will Knowles BA driver still have deep bass? I was surprised how deep Astrotec S60 BA drivers sounded.

    Except this thread is for the ones without wires in the setup... there are dozens of other threads for the other types.

    Isn't fair at all to trow a setup with wires to the mix as a 30$ hybrid unit of those ones (ZSN with APTX adapter) would crush pretty much anything without that wire, making any comparison meaningless.

    Dont get me wrong, I truly LOVE those and use them way more than the TWS ones, but isn't what we are looking for in this thread.

    Knowles typically has better dynamic range than other brand BA units, but there's a cost premium. of course it depends on which Knowles driver they're using (they have full range drivers, dedicated high/low/mid drivers, etc)


    Edit: the S60 is a Knowles BA driver :)

    Darn, was going for the reverse on both of those :)

    Look forward to hearing which driver it is... Knowles BA TWS is at the top of my list right now, so I'm very interested :)

    As it's single driver construction, we are using dedicated fullrange driver.

    If you are looking for best deep bass, I would say go with the DD version.

    I'm curios about the same thing, maybe someone can help us through

    They're all close, but I find myself reaching for the MPOW T5 the most. It's the most balanced and plays well with both Android (aptX) and iPhone (AAC).
     
  11. hifi80sman
    For anyone? Well, I'd say all of them except for the Astrotec S80. They are brighter than typical consumer tuning, however, they have the best clarity. They also seem to be hit or miss when it comes to fit, although they fit me great. They are harder to recommend to the masses, but they are great earbuds.

    Can't go wrong with the other 3.

    Thanks, just looking for "deep for a BA". I prefer the clarity of BA drivers over the deep base of dynamics

    How do the T10 sound vs 359 and Sabbat E12?
     
  14. Dcell7
    Will there be an ambient mode ?
     
  15. tsoltan
    No APTX? =(((
