I have them. Bought them almost 1 year ago, let me know your opinion. I use them a lot, they are fast and linear, with good value for money.
i only got it cause headfonia had it in the rec list

Listening to Falls on Rauros - 'Patterns in mythology' album on LZ A7 silver filter/monitor mode on Hiby R3PRO Saber. This thing kills!
If your looking for an iem specifically for metal with a budget around $300, LZ A7 is a great option.

Much better than NM2 + on extreme metal?

And compared to the Fearless you have?
Yes, I find them much better than NM2+ for extreme metal but that said for $150 NM2+ is great! A7 is impressing me with whatever I throw at them, right now listening to Feather and bone - 'Sulfuric disintegration' A7 is taking it like a champ. For $300 A7 is a steal!
Listening to metal on S8F is more intense experience, it's like being in a moshpit!
For $500 Fearless S8 is 🔥

I’m using that Feather and Bone album this week to test grating cymbals (don’t get me wrong I love the track though!). If my headphones do it well then they are a keeper is my mentality this week!

I’ve also been listening to Fall of Rauros recently too as Tidal recommends them after Blut Aus Nord. Sounds like we are liking some of the same (new) music. What do you use keep track of new stuff? I’m using Tidal/Roon to suggest stuff, but also Zero Tolerance mag here in the UK as well as ‘Metal Archives’ website’.

Also, I’m 11 months into my new years resolution to listen to a new album everyday. Today’s is the newly released Cadaver, which is good but with very distinctive drums!

What a surprise! My Fearless S8Fs are just arrived! Before the date set by DHL. I am listening to some progressive metal and djent at the moment. They seem to be a detail monster, but I will leave my feedback after more songs and some comparisons with other IEMs that I have here.

Here is some pictures, but I will upload better ones with better light tomorrow.

Now l'm waiting for the 7N 4.4mm upgrade cable... It is on its way.

Oh, that stinks! Sorry. Hopefully it gets resolved quickly. Fearless is usually really good about QC.

I placed my order for the Fearless S8Pro. Now time to wait. It will probably be a month before I get them, since it’s a custom color scheme, but UIEMs. If only I had digital ear impressions, I probably would’ve opted for the CIEM version.

Just out of curiosity what made you pick P over F?

The right earpiece distorts abnormally at high frequencie, it croaks a bit too. I was not sure, but then I played Master of Puppets and heard it clearly. I am very sad at the moment. I e-mailed to Linsou, let’s see what they say.

Mine took 15 days... I was very happy of the choice of shell design.

Just hoping that perhaps the upper mids and treble sound a little smoother. Truthfully, it was like flipping a coin.
