The discovery thread!

    I am thinking the folks that made them Kbear Hi7 is the same exact people that made the NX7 and KZ and Woo and BGVP and CCA ect ect. They all advertise the same and ulimately look similar. Same OEM different names. Hi7 looks interesting however. Anyone gonna bite?

    I'm asking the store to give me a better image of the frequency response of Hi7, though I don't have much confident with KZ-related stuff now. Part of the reason why I still tolerate the hits and misses of TRN is that they try to separate themselves from KZ (remember reading somewhere that TRN was created by former KZ engineers).

    I'm tempted. I took a chance when I bought the KBEAR TRI I4, and that worked out. The shell is vaguely reminiscent of some other IEMs, but to my knowledge the venting looks pretty unique. Interesting that they don't disclose exact driver types or arrangements. Also 12 ohm resistance with 106db sensitivity is pretty sensitive for a multi-driver IEM, no?

    I've got a pair of Hi7 on the way. Thanks to @FastAndClean I should be able to compare them with the NX7 when they arrive.

    Yep, have one coming.

    And I finally found my old tackle box from 20 years ago, when fishing around Lake Athbasca near Uranium City, Saskatchewan...the hooks went into storage again.

    Design looks good for fit including wearing down after swapping sides(obviously with a cable w/o guides like my Fiio short cord)...

    I am more interested in how open they are and the bass and staging. I have been a fan of more vented designs when they are done well.

    And ummm, it says "$1000" not Yen or Euro. Otto...costs 10K Yen and has sound of 1K yen earphones???:)

    This is the blue...

    I'm liking the gun metal a little better for how the venting looks and how it goes with the black cable and tips.

    Maybe it sounds like a $1k IEM that sounds like a $50 IEM.

    Utterly pointless marketing drivel.

    The NX7 was introduced using similar language, and that got a lot of attention, so maybe not so pointless. :)

    I'll admit, it surely turns heads. But it doesn't mean anything. Might as well say it sounds like a brand new BMW or a pair of big ol' titties.

    So posted about these foams a while ago. Cheaper chinese foams from Aliexpress. I honestly feel these are worth owning for your earphones. They seem to last roughly a year or so for a set with regular use but considering they give you 20 pairs for less than a $10 spot. One of the better deals for tips that actually works extremely well.

    They usually go for $12ish but is on sale for less than $10. Get em while they are hot. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32749908913.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.1baf4c4dxSzzkf
