Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

    Found the 1st problem... it lack volume levels.
    Its either too loud or too low, have to play a bit more to check if I can fix it on the cellphone.
  2. igorneumann
    Will not have time today to check battery life, can report on this tomorrow.

    But I did found some problems with it already:

    - Too few volume steps... its either NONE, too low, too high or maximum. (probably I can unpair the cellphone's volume and the IEM volume to fix it)
    - EVERYTIME I tried to double tap it to change songs it detected just 1 tap.
    - Micro USB, Really?

    That said, it sounds awesome, looks awesome, the fit is good,

    So, I'm looking for the best sounding true wireless IEM and I found now these:

    Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless
    Bang & Olufsen Beoplay E8 2.0
    Sony WF-1000XM3

    Is there others IEMs to consider?

    Whoah! A local online shop are lending these to me (and later on the Sony’s) to test, review and compare them! :D :D

    most TWS volume adjustments are like that, the steps are a bit jumpy.
    what phone are you using? if you happen to uae samsung phones, you can adjust the step increments of the volume of the phone using the sound assistance app.

    also, i recently enjoy to turn on the Dolby atmos feature on my Note 8, as it enhance the room/space feel of the sound, while giving a slight but noticable bass impact

    Received my KZ T1 today and had about 1h to play with them and straight out of the box, no change of tips, no burn in ... i am totally in awe!

    Those sound really really good! Currently listening to Hanz Zimmer's Interstellar OST, one of my fav recordings which I must have listened to close to 100 times ... and I am suddenly making out minor details (low volume in the high region) that I have never heard / noticed before! The detail on these is phenomenal, while the bass, not overpowering, but sweet and punchy and can go low when needed. Have not done any mid specific testing yet, just enjoying as is right now ... but overall very very happy! Will do a battery test when I have the time :D

    I wonder sometimes if my brass ears can still correctly make out sound stage, but I have a feeling here that this easily beats the Anbes 359, which are often said to have a wide soundstage.

    So far I did not experience a single connection drop.

    Buuuut ... here are some minor pet-peeves I have noticed so far, maybe flaws on the design stage that can still be fixed (if KZ reads along here?)
    -while the case feels premium (made by Mifo? same tag line :wink: ) , the buds are a bit less so ... the 'famous from cheap buds' blinking red/blue lights do not help, plus, the blue lights keep blinking every 5 secs or so, which is really annoying in the dark (somehow I think I have read there was a way to turn that off? )


    - the other thing is how the buds are placed in the case ...


    when opening the case like this, the buds are exactly on opposite sides ... this is kinda annoying ... I have the same thing with the Whizzer TP1 ...

    - the touch sensor reacts too quickly, it is easy to pause music by accident ... to do the triple click for vol up/down, you kinda need to 'aim' first, which already triggers a pause :)

    Overall minor things, but I am still super happy with the SQ ... the fit is very similar to the Sabbath x12 btw. Just more plasticky feel.

    Too bad they have no IPX rating whatsoever ... would have made them my fav new running buds ...

    Im VERY impressed by the KZ T1... you should check it out.

    True, I dont had any of those,m but comparing to the Whizzer TP1, The TFZ X1 and the Sabbat E12, they are miles ahead.

    Unfortunately, I cannot find it here in Germany.

    @phiemon , AliExpress? When I was just staying in Germany I had everything sent there :D This summer I did not have a single issue with customs.

    I have custom ROM, I can easily increase the steps, but this usually doesnt increase the device's step but "unlink" the cellphone volume to the device's volume.
    It did solved the "too sensitive to regulate" AS10 for me.

    I agree the swapped sides in the Whizzer TP1 and the KZ T1 is an annoyance, but I think they did it to pack as tightly as possible in the case. Also agree in the cheap construction, it would be a KILLER product if was as well made as the TFZ.

    NO IPX rating? Damn thats a bummer (havent checked) but I doubt I will trust it again after my TFZ X1 dying after 1 shower.

    No disconnections here, neither, they are clearly better than the TFZ AND the Whizzer in this aspect.

    I double checked again ... KZ Official and Bright Audio say 'Waterproof: No' while YaoYaoTiger says 'Waterproof: yes' ... since none of the promotional material says anything regarding water / sweatproof / IPX, I am inclined to stay on the safe side and NOT go running with them (where I am now we have 95% humidity and I am totally drenched after each run, including the insides of my ears)

    (small correction: YaoYaoTiger also says 'no' in the overview, but 'yes' in the spec-sheet ... probably a copy/paste error)

    Congrats Caipirina(Bastard rahaha) & igorneumann on the T1. I'm so excited for you and jealous at the same time. Do you guys have the ZST to compare? I'm wondering if it has a similar SQ? Looking forward to the battery life at 50 percent. I'm thinking maybe 4 and half hours? and 80-95 Percent 3 hours? Dang I really want to hear these, F&%K. Slater did you order these?

    That's amazing a big congrats. Hopefully more online stores will send you more stuff to review. AWESOME.

    Congrats for the recognition of your awesome review work!

    Really curious how your hoarder soul will react to 'RETURNING' all those nice new toys! Especially the ones you like!

    I actually do own the ZST and will try to do some comparison ... but if memory serves I was never that impressed with them ...

    The last KZ I listened to more analytical and totally liked was the AS06 ... since then I also gotten a heap more KZs , but since I was too busy with TWS stuff, I never got beyond the 'are they working' test stage ... and still have those for future discovery and listening pleasure :)
