its mostly an advertisement for their audio tuning service

If they're not taking the info to spam afterwards, it's a good thing, yes.

First time user at Aliexpress, any particular seller for Monndrop Kanas Pro someone care to recommend?
I am considering selling my Ibasso ITO1 and going for Kanas Pro or Toneking T4.

T4 are at MD now I think

Just get the cheapest one and add winter-sales coupon + new-user coupon. You`ll end up having Kanas Pro for 121 € / 138 USD :wink:

Wait, how are you getting $138? Price is 157 then you apply the $4 seller discount code and then the $3 new user code. No matter what I do, the lowest is $150.33. How are you getting $138.

it depends what size-giants are you referring. these 5 dollars iem sounds more linear and rivals iems up to below 200 dollars in sound quality and clarity in my opinion. now i remember why i paused and hesitated to sell my SBH20 after i took one final listen before sending it. I'm glad that someone brought it up again so i could revisit it

I agree. They are very competent in all areas. Soundstage is good, though they have an outstanding ability to seperate instruments. Very coherent sounding, maybe only lacking in some treble extention. For 5-10$? Unbeatable.

Yes! Totally agree. If not for the slightly rolled off treble, these would most certainly overtake all but my IE800 and FW01 in performance, but they are smooth sounding to a fault, with polite highs.

I don't do iems anymore, but the above $5 giant killing hype gets my attention :)

They are certainly worth taking a look at. Even with all the fakes floating around, for <10$ this is a risk worth taking. The cable sucks, the build is anemic, but the sound is stellar. I'm going to try and get some more just to mod them into something more useable for everyday life.

EDIT: Here is some good guidance to what to look for when buying the MH755: https://www.head-fi.org/threads/chi...hones-and-iems.820747/page-1412#post-14705306

Absolutely agree. For the cost, they are a no-brainer, and the sound is so far ahead of anything in the $5.00-$50.00 range. You need to start hitting the $70.00 and above level to start pulling even. IMHO. If only the treble was a tad more extended, but it's still crisp and no sibilance at all.

Here's where I got my genuine MH755 from. Most likely you can buy with confidence here. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Genuine-So...var=631627770559&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649

That's good info - thanks. As long as the cable isn't like the mh1c's cable (ie flat, and j-cable), I'd survive.

Thanks! Unfortunately doesn't ship to Canada, but I'll look around some more.

I got lost in temptation and bought both HQ12 and FR12 for $622 after coupons. I was tempted by @Dsnuts and how good A8 is.
I am really curious to see how these Chi-Fi high BAs compare to the Massdrop x Empire Ears Zeus in February.
I just hope FR12 is not as ugly as in the pictures.

Considering their previous efforts for multi ba earphones like the DZ12 was going for roughly that much that is still a good deal. Since your actually getting two phones. Can't say if both of them will have different enough tunings however. I skipped on the FR12 as I have a good idea how they are gonna sound. I keep on mentioning this but both earphones are made by the same OEM. One is made for NiceHCK the other we cant mention. Last time I bought HK6 and the other brand and I can clearly tell they are made by the same designers. Using the same type of BAs too.

Truly though the sound is excellent for the price so you might end up enjoying both. I just hope for you that they have different enough tunings to end up keeping. If not you can always sell NiceHCKs version if they are very similar. Was listening to mine today. Vocals sound stunning on them. They are a part of my weekly rotation of different phones I use. I will most definitely report how they compare to the EE Zeus once I get those.

A big warning I have to give to guys that end up getting either of these.. BURN THEM IN.
Play music for a week straight at normal listening volumes. Otherwise your gonna be sour you bought them. Lol. I am very serious about this. If you don't believe in BA burn in. These will make you believe in BA burn in.
