    Nice work, now more of us on this side of the pond will get to enjoy them for Christmas because of your post. Oh and did you notice you saved $160.99 off of the $259.99 list price? I feel a lot better now, lol.

    i think you have to type "ibasso it01" not the " ibasso it 01 " i mean there is no space in " it" and "01"

    Thank you for the advice George, you were right saying the sound is better than IE8. Received mine today from Headphoniaks 3 days early, thanks for existing! I'm blown away by the sound of these, full, smooth yet very precise sound, fast and punchy. EQ seems V shaped out of the box which is what I like, good synergy, love it so far, can only hope the sound gets even more refined after some burn-in.
    I know I love the sound because it's been some hours since I put them in and I can't convince myself to stop listening. Very comfortable too, the buds are on the bulky side (no sleeping with these) but they fit my ears perfectly with good isolation and pack a big sound.

    Good job iBasso!

    I'm always glad to help!

    They won't always sound better thab ie80, or for everybody, but based on what you said you like, and based on your previous experience with IEMs, it was clear that you would had liked them better! I'm really glad you found a sweetheard IEM in there! :darthsmile:

    I keep saying this, but people got to believe that iBasso really made a IEM that has good chances of conquering a lot of hearts with its sound!

    Now I really want to see it in black color though...

    For my ears, they get better with burn in. The black one here is a new pair and the red/blue one has been burned in for almost a hundred hours now. Again, for my ears, there are no dramatic changes but I hear the bass and treble as more refined after some time. OOTB, they sounded a bit muddy and grainy but still great, IMO.

    So, they're being sold in Amazon US and there are bundle options. Not only with iBasso DAPs, there's a bundle with a Lotoo PAW Gold as well.

    Got mine in black today, 4 working days delivery from ibasso's website.

    (note: these are early impressions, sound changes significantly with burn-in and finding the right fit! I will post updates later on)

    OOTB the sound is good, but I would not call it CH9T killer (especially with upgraded cable for CH9Ts):
    IT01 has wider 3D soundstage, but does not dig as low in sub-bass territory (so not too good for dubstep, great for rock though), slightly louder HF, but less precise and overall they have somewhat veiled sound, yet they are very musical and engaging - but I expect this to change over time, based on other poster's feedback and impressions.

    Cable is abolutely awesome, good selection of tips (too soft for my liking though), extremely comfortable fit.

    Burning in, already hearing some changes after about an hour, since I use a separate source for burning in I hope to exclude psychological burn in, will see how it goes.

    Glad to see you got yours, @Ivan TT. Both of these are keepers, IMO. I have not sold my CH9T yet, just enjoying the IT01 more. Let's see how they will complement each other after the proper burn in time.

    Well, I have CH9T, IT01 as well as TinAudio T2 arriving right after Christmas. For me, I think it'll come down to proper fitment, which is very subjective as all our ears are shaped differently. If I can't get a good seal, even the best IEMs out there will sound like crap to me. For example, I could not get a good seal with ADV S2000 which resulted in nonexistent bass. I am hoping one of these in-coming IEMs will make me happy.

    Has anyone used them with an IPhone 6s+

    I'm the same with silicone tips, I only use memory foam tips on every pair of IEMs I own. I wish the IEM manufacturers would include 50/50 foam to silicone instead of the token pair they usually include.

    I searched for "iBasso IT01" (no space) - I think there's something wrong with the way Amazon has indexed the listing. Also, when I view my order, Amazon has a "no image available" placeholder and doesn't display a photo of the iBasso it01.
