Interesting. Will you be posting commentary here in the thread?
Depends if people want it. If I do it then It will mostly be a brief impression ( after using them a while) of the sound and not like my reviews. And the impressions will be my 100% subjective opinion unlike my reviews that I try to do as objectively as possible.

Now I'm curious how the measured response looks for your 'subjective' ranked top iems. I haven't found the LZ A6 measurement yet. I hope you understand my skepticisim of many Chifi iems that are flavor of the months or days. Lol

The issue with Chifi is, they churn out different shell variasions of same tunings. There are too many out there, and even if they are fairly low priced, buying them to try them out adds up, and you end up with landfills. Lol

We need to be assured people arn't just pushing products from free samples.

Agree that chi-fi can be a trap, but recently chi-fi has really stepped up their game and there is plenty of different tunings available in different price ranges. Blon 03, LZ A6 mini and Tin hifi P1 for example are all great value for their sound profiles.

It will much appreciate to see your ranking list.
And I red your review on the LZ A6 mini. I'm very close to pull the trigger on it.

You mean the LZ A6 right? not the Mini. If you are interested in the mini then I suggest you wait a bit because I will get the Shozy Form 1.1 soon ( this friday according to amazon) and then I can compare the 1.1 to the A6 mini ( they are about the same price).

I meant the mini. My Shozy 1.1 is on the way. But I'll wait for your impression.

Nice list bro, maybe u can add a segment on which IEM is better for which genres/preferred sound signature. Or maybe classify them into DD/BA/hybrids? Since they have different strengths and weaknesses between the transducer types.
Might add the sound signature segment, but the driver type and also price is something I believe might be better to not have on the list. Because I think that placebo can affect ones judgment quite a bit. For example If I classify the T800 as an 8 driver Balanced armature then people might think that the bass is gonna be the typical BA bass, which it isnt.

@barbaresh just got my Shozy Form 1.1 and...it stomps on the A6 mini and can even rival the A6 in some parts. The A6 mini´s 3k peak really stands out when compared to the 1.1 and the highs just sounds grainy. I am changing the A6 mini´s grade from A- to B.
The 1.1 bass is as good as the A6 and the mids is just slightly below the a6 in both quantity and quality. Literally the only things the A6 is better than the 1.1 is technicalities ( instrument separation, soundstage, imaging) and more details in the treble and more air.


2020-02-12: LZ A6 Mini grade changed from A- to B.

My Shozy 1.1 is on the way from Singapore... Ordered from Linsoul. Don't know if it's a good thing or is the same from China.

Very much appreciate for the update.
