OS133 paired with the CCA CRA+

Dropping by to post my quick impressions of the OS133 that I purchased a few weeks ago. The build quality on this cable is very good for the current asking price of $39. The braided cable is supple but at the same time feels resilient to wear and tear. The sleeve is woven not too loose and not too tight and is comfortable to wear. Microphonics are present but don't affect my enjoyment. The Y split moves easily and stays in position when cinched tight. The gold-plated copper accessories look and feel like something you would see on a cable from a much higher price bracket. The sound quality is what I have come to expect of silver plated OFC with a lower frequency emphasis but the fine resolution of silver plating. The OS133 seems to nicely complement / emphasise inherent staging capability on most of my sets too.

Would definitely recommend this one, especially if you want a high quality look at a budget price!

PENON OS133 IMPRESSIONS

tempImagew0iJhi.jpg


I purchased the OS133 a few weeks ago at the current sale price of $39 and am very pleased with it so far. The sound is smooth and balanced, suitable for use on probably just about any earphone. The gauge is not nearly as thick as most Penon cables, instead being about what I would call normal, allowing the braided cable to be very light, ergonomic, and pliable. There are no earhooks which I strongly prefer as earhooks often combine with my anatomy to yank the IEMs out of my ears; only Penon seems to regularly opt for a no-hook design aside from custom requests.

The hardware in particular is very eye-catching yet elegant; I normally dislike both carbon fiber and gold accents on my cables, but somehow the design really works and manages to look premium but not gaudy. For the current asking price I think this cable will meet a lot of peoples' wants and needs.

5N single crystal copper silver-plated cable

Acoustic Space Tuning Technology

PVD gold-plated border inlaid dyed natural abalone shells

Easy to push omnivorous, comfortable to wear

Starting from the heart, YST

ECCI earphones have always pursued the natural and transparent sound of sound, which is dominated by easy-to-push and long-lasting listening, and implements the theme of not getting tired of listening. Reference is aimed at matching mobile phones to portable lossless players, so that the pleasure of enjoying high-quality music can be brought to more different groups of people, this as a reason to open a new series of products Yinshite.

Auricle zone pressure adjustment, comfortable fit in the ear

Wear around the ear, with memory PU hose ear hooks, more comfortable and more stable to wear. The small cavity is in line with the shape of the human ear, and there is no pressure when wearing it for a long time.

Two-way frequency division hybrid driver, simplifying complexity, not blindly stacking materials, suitable is good

Two-way frequency division is a very common frequency division method in traditional HiFi bookshelf speakers, usually provided by large-sized speakers. Through multiple selection speakers with cooperative speaker manufacturers and then design and pairing combinations, physical frequency division and RC circuit frequency division are used to make the timbre accurate and the transition natural and loose.

Rich cable expandability

The cable is made of four-strand litz structure single crystal copper silver-plated, and the cross-braided wire can effectively reduce the loss and distortion of signal transmission. The custom 2pin 0.78mm interface is highly resistant to unplugging to ensure signal transmission.

Very interesting. Same driver configuration as the YST-02. Is the tuning different! How does it compare? @Dsnuts are you reviewing this?

I've published my ACMEE Magic Sound 4S review, they fixed the issues with output power on the first model, and now I can say with confidence it's one of the best budget dongle options out there. As far as I'm aware at $69 it is the least expensive dual 3.5mm and 4.4mm dongle currently available, and moreover it has one of the best balanced power outputs on a dongle at any price. Slightly analytical with a bit drier timbre but very balanced sound overall.

EST50 MONITORS & OS133 Penon adapter
- THE COMPLETE Package -

ISN EST50 & Penon OS133 audio adapter
An utterly atmospheric combo.....
Maybe my end game combo.....
Since yesterday having listened for the first time to EST50s using OS133 adapter everything has drastically changed.Nothing is the same anymore.....
Believe it or not i was more surprised than my last audition and post here regarding ISN H50...wich is a true ISN gem as well...
The main thing at this synergy that got enhanced right from the start was the depth of the stage (do not misunderstand me here.. EST50s have remarkable stage dimensions) Nevertheless since listening them on OS133 adapter every aspect of their allready big stage got improved even more, especially the depth resulting in an even better sense of separation and air between instruments , I could tell that easily from the start .....
Being at this hobby for about 7 years now ,those moments since yesterday will stay with me forever....
YOU HAVE TO HEAR IT TO BELIEVE IT 😃
My listening experience got enriched in numerous ways I could not even imagined before this....
It is a gorgeous synergy up to that point of being afraid to listen to EST50s alone....
Everything is freakingly adorable in this synergy..
The stereo image, the unbelievable depth of the scene, ,the resolution,the transients, the texture/timbre of the instruments,the sentimental approach of the recordings,the beyond description transparency and atmosphere being created.... EVERYTHING....
Nevertheless i can tell from that first listening session that EST50 is to me at least a MAJOR upgrade over the previous H40.
The instrument texture/timbre alone gets in a completely different level of superiority here with EST50
The separation/instrument placement in the stage gets to be the MAIN STAR OF THE SHOW...From the first song i could recognize that ....
As another headfier wrote in the past regarding H40 VS EST50.... ”with EST50 you can fly between the instruments” could not agree more with that statement and that's with straight out of the box listening...
me....in heavens now..........

(....5 hours later.....)
in case anyone wonders ......H40/H50/EST50....
which one suits me best ?
which one should i go for ???
Well...let me help you guys (always imho ...up to the point of ability , experience and understanding..)

H40 is clearly for everyone here under a restricted budget and undoubtedly offers a unique hi-fi experience , a much valuable introduction to the traditional ISN House Sound.Bombastic bass presentation, thick weighty sound ,BUT..transparent midrange....a classic on its own..

H50 is a slight departure from the traditional ISN sound signature and tuning focusing more on the sub bass rather than the mid bass region obtaining this way a thunderous sub bass impact easily distinctive and simply captivating....a more linear/ audiofilish approach in terms of tuning tuned more towards brightness resulting in a more sparkling overall presentation ,the absolute dream of any treble head out there imo......wide holographic dimensional scene a gem of a monitor..

EST50s is the absolute package for me..
The holy grail of monitors dare i say better...
The EPITOME of atmospheric sound reproduction
based on an remarkable scene depth and exquisite instrument separation gives to the listener everything he can ask or think for in a monitor nowadays..
Each instrument comes out with weight, authority and superior definition as it actually happens in the real world,as it happens in a live stage...
EST50s could easily fit into the 1000$ territory no doubt about it..... and do not expect any other upgrade after getting this one ....i mean do not even bother with other hi end established companies in the audio market like Unique Melody for example and their products...
Believe me i own UM MEXT and EST50s are way better in any area in any part of the spectrum guys.....
(the stability of the sound at high pitched volumes / the coherence of the stage / the balance between transparency and correct note weight... etc..)
It's their flagship for a reason and i confirm that without any doubt
It deserves every penny and more than this......
