Hi all! Made an account to get some experienced input.

I am looking to purchase a new IEM as a long term investment. Through my research I have discovered Tanchjim Oxygen will be a great buy.

My source is an LG G6 (quad dac) which I will use with Audirect Beam and I am maybe purchasing a Fiio A5.

I am on vacation and I got to try some IEMs (nothing available back home). I tried Final E5000, iBasso IT01s, which is I think in the same range as Oxygen according to what I see, and I tried Kinera Idun as well.

Out of these, I love the bass of the E5000, and like the detail of the IT01s. Idun was really good too, but maybe a little something missing in bass/sub bass for me. Will the Oxygen be good in these aspects too?

I have seen that Kanas Pro, BGVP DM6 and now the TFZ No. 3 Ti are competitors to the Oxygen.

Can anyone help me make an informed purchase?
I think you would find people in this thread who are familiar with many of the iems that you have mentioned

Also as surfgeorge mentioned, you can use the search function to find out more about each one. You probably have already done this.

I was having fit fatigue issues with the tanchjim o2. Went through a whole bunch of different tips - spiral dots, spinfits CP155s and CP240s, mandarins, etc. They either changed the sound too much or made my ear helix sore.
Anyway, I switched to cable with angled 2 pin connectors, and voila no more soreness, and can roll most of the tips to my sound liking.
This is the cable I got. One of the few I found with angle'd 2pin connectors and a balanced 2.5mm connection. The other one I was thinking about is the null audio cable, but its more expensive and longer lead time

That's a great idea, Tony. I have the worst time with insertion depth, but the soundstage is addicting, so I put up with it. The formed hooks on the upgrade cable help, too.

Hi all,

Just purchased the Oxygen with upgraded cable.
Where can one purchase those foams?
Congrats!

If you're located in the USA you can get it either on eBay or Amazon but it's also available on Aliexpress in here. Also, you can get a cheaper option which will do the trick as well (link).

So when I got my Oxygen I didn't even bother to use the stock cables, I went straight up to my custom cable (which is a cheap silver plated cable + reterminated neutrik jack) and I was kinda curious how people were finding it "too polite" but today I needed to use media controls on mobile then I got the stock cable and geez... somehow it killed all the sparkle. I'm really skeptical when the subject is cables and night/day differences claims for DD but now I can understand the people who find it "too polite".

I've been reading some Japanese tweets saying something similar that stock cables are kinda bad, do you guys feel the same as well?

I don't care so much for when people said cables don't bring changes in sound, for what I believe they do bring impact to the sound imo, because they conducts electrical information to the earphones, just comparison between the expensive cables is so little that even people can't hear the differences. So yeah, the cable could change the sound quality in your new oxygen.

I was surprised about the influence of the cable.
Compared cables with the JVC FD02 here: https://www.head-fi.org/threads/jvc-ha-fd01-class-s-solidege.868414/page-21#post-14976571
Not an Oxygen, but the general fidings should be comparable.

The Oxygens arrived with upgraded cable.. silly question: the cable has on one end a red Dot and on the other a blue dot.. can I just plug them in to the monitors or is there correct order to plug them in like blue to left and red to right?

Thanks,
Toube
