Now I started to wonder is the purchase even worth it. I have have the Shure SE 535LTD's. What do you guys think?
Good question. All this nonsense has left a bad taste in my mouth. You may want to consider the Fiio FH7, available in my country right now from official Fiio website, with some discount; FH7 has great reviews; it's costlier than A7 by a fairly big margin though. Only thing is, it is bulky so I am not sure about fit and comfort. I already have the FH3, and it's awesome for the price. Haven't heard the 535s, so can't comment.

What do you mean about best price at Linsoul? Now with coupons I can get the A7 for under 236€. Linsoul store has it at $285. AE is cheaper still, not by much but it is.

Strange... this might be something to do with ali and linsoul using different currency conversions and tax for the New Zealand dollar:

Best price on ali + coupons =NZ$ 454.88
BUT ali adds an extra NZ$ 64.69 TAX, so total = NZ$ 495.90 (incl ali standard shipping)

but my total for linsoul was only NZ$ 414.74 (with free DHL express) (and a free tripowin nucool cable)

And a new buyer of the A7!
I got it at a great price on AE.

I can't wait to receive them to compare with my CCA C16 / CA16 and ISN H40!

I don't know if I should thank this forum ... :)
I first left for a KZ ASX, then I branched off on an NM2 + to end up on the A7.

You all folks make my wallet cry :innocent:

Which buyer on AE, you bought from and when? Pray you don't get that dreaded mail to cancel some of us received.

In the house, burning time. Do you use certain tools for changing filter or just use your thumb and index fingers😄

I don't understand why y'all are buying these off ali instead of Linsoul? Linsoul seems to have the best price, free dhl shipping, and great customer support - (speaking from personal experience only). I woke up at 5:00am to grab one ASAP for 11.11 - im surprised they haven't already sold out there.

Very exited to get it : -]
I'm from Brazil, so Aliexpress seems to be the most confortable way to buy these things.
Also, aliexpress accepts a kind od payment that I don't know if it exists in other countries: you can pay things in smaller installments using credit card. Pretty convenient. Read through the internet that it's a brazilian thing.
Also, importing from europe/usa there's a higher chance of paying taxes...which is 60% of the product.

1) Comfort- Yes ( Vented ) just like KZ KAX, give more breathing into your ears:L3000: more ear time.
2) Natural Sound-Yes ( 3D Imaging & better resolution) vs NM2+ Smoothness.
3)Staging is wide like open:gs1000smile:hp.
4) No high intolerable high frequency from piezo so far.

2Hours playtime so far using stock cable and black tips.

Oh yeah, the stock tips doesn't suit me. Using Azla xelestec at the moment for comfort fitting but will switch to other tips because I Azla xelestec abit dry sounding to me.

Has anyone had ”problems” with driver flex with the A7? Just curious.

Not for me. The LZ A7 is vented so that helps a bit, but driver flex is also related to ear anatomy and types of ear tips/seal of eartip used, so YMMV as always.

I also make it a habit to pull the upper earlobe up and open my mouth when inserting an IEM, so that helps to alleviate driver flex in about 90+ % of IEMs with dynamic drivers so far.
