Just curious what dap/source and cable you use for the Legend X? Never heard an EE iem. Legend X will probably be my first.
I move around so I tend to use BT DAC/AMPs (w/EQ).
I alternate between the EarStudio es100 and Qudelix 5k. For my ears (it's subtle) I notice a little fuller/dynamic sound with the es100 and a little more clarity on the 5k, but both are really good. Sometimes I use the ifi xDSD/Audio Player Pro if I am messing with MQA audio.
With cables I tried a variety of brands and types (copper, silver, etc) but wasn't really noticing notable differences. Sometimes over analyzing can lead to convincing yourself that you hear more than really is there. I just use the Effect Audio Vogue Series Maestro UP-OCC, which I believe EE originally shipped with the Legend X.

Hi, Been referencing this thread for months & months to get an idea of what great IEM'S are available now and too come but, i need some help with my next purchase and i would really appreciate anyone's advice?
First & foremost i am a TOTAL Basshead! I own IMR B.C & Opus Mia, Lear LCM-Kalideo(custom), Monster Turbine Gold Pro and a few other cheap chi-fi's my source (at present) LG V30 and FiiO E07k.
I have roughly £350-£375 and I'm really looking to get something with the Sonion Dual Electrostate driver & Dynamic Driver? My only must is Potent BASSHEAD Sub-Bass both in quantity & quality. All other Frequencies & technicalities must be inline with the price? As i say, i would really like to have the Electrostate Drivers but, if a model doesn't have the ES but is a great IEM like the Rose QT-9 Mk2 for example. The models i am Intrested in after research are
1/ ISN EST50,ThieAudio Excalibur, Focus EDM and the Rose QT-9 Mk2.
Problem is i cannot listen to any of them and its a big lay out for something you have never heard!
So any advice would be SO welcome?
Many many thanks in advance for your help i appreciate it very much👍

I`ve buyed the FiiO FD1 and the Bass is fantastic. However, the sound is a bit artificial. I would have wished for more naturalness and the highs could have been a little more restrained. On my Laptop the Bass is stronger and have more impact. Improve DACs like the FiiO Q1 the Bass on mobile device?

Look this is the Basshead thread. 800st with eq, power and the tape mod. NOTHING BEATS THIS. I mean NOTHING. This is it! End game. Make no mistake.
You might change your mind if you hear the new IMR B.C(Bass Cannon) it has one 13.5mm Hybrid Ceramic Dynamic Driver, one 6mm CNT Dynamic Driver w/ A.D.L.C Diaphragm and one High Resolution Piezo Electric Driver.
Iv heard the E8000 and it is a monster! But the IMR B.C has just as much rumble & impact and MUCH better quality! This comparison is with E8000 mod and Basshead EQ & Amp'ed IMR B.C. I would say E8000 is Basshead but B.C is audiophile Basshead!

While I don't have first hand experience with many of the higher tier IEM's on this list, I have had a few sets of MDR xb50's over the years. Just recently got a pair of Fiio FH3's and have to say they have some WEIGHT to the low end off a fiio A3 with bass boost turned on while sounding extremely clear, no muddy or blended sounds like the MDR's had. No other EQ added. Anyone with more experience also tried the FH3's to validate this?

Nobody sells that here. Is there any 4.4mm version?


Ive bought 64 Audio Nio & Sony Z1R
According to alot lot lot of person said the Z1R is a king

Thats NOT true!

The truth is 64 Nio with m20 apex module

Nio has 3 types of module included
M10 M15 M20

Use M20 for Basshead heaven,
U12T using m20 same like nio with m15
But Nio with m20?

No brainer! Grab it fast if you all see nio
