I posted some thoughts on ESR2 over in EE thread. My impressions appear to conflict with expectations, descriptions, even my own, which is not to say I find ESR 2 disappointing. Just the opposite. Out of the four EE iems I’ve owned it’s my favorite.
I do wish the EE, DD bass driver was available in a model which is as tonally balanced as ESR2. I think many would counter LX/Odin as such, but cost is too high for me, and bass descriptions lead me to believe they would be OTT for my preferences.

Legend X perhaps, but the Odin’s bass is much more balanced. ✌️

It's...getting tiresome, honestly. They should introduce something else, something different for a change.
Sadly they did with T5 but initial impressions are not at all positive. It's mixed to negative so far.

Maybe they know T5 is probably not going to appeal their usual fans so why not give them another lolipop with their favourite flavour labelled on it most probably at $60. Tin is now becoming Fast & Furious of IEMs.

TFZ is the king at that game...

I think the fastest way to get IEMs sold nowadays is to just use an anime girl waifu packaging haha. And give the IEM some english name instead of some alphabet soup like Urbanfun YBF-ISS014.

Folks get confused if CHIFI companies put an S or Pro moniker behind their gear eg ZS10 Pro vs ZS10, BLON BL-05S vs BLON BL-05.

Hahahaha spot on! Also, ensure you have some otherworldly material as driver diaphragm and/or shell material which in plain English translates to dynamic driver in an aluminium/metal casing. 😂

7 watts of power at 32 ohms, anyone?

The Cayin iHA-6 is absurdly powerful and I am afraid to plug any IEM barring Final E5000 (93dB/mW sensitivity) because of how powerful it is from the balanced out.

The build quality and overall fit and finish belies the price-tag. Frankly, from the feel and design alone I'd assume it to be a $1000+ amp. Fortunately it's quite a bit lower than that and still in the "somewhat affordable" range. The biggest issue for me is the weight of these which makes these very difficult to reposition let alone carry around (~5kg).

So far only listening with HD650 from the 4-pin XLR out and it has thundering dynamics along with better layering than the Schiit Jotunheim. I'm not a big fan of Topping's artificial-ish signature anyway on most of their amps but I will try and compare against A90 soon. Other than that, can't see another amp in this range that can compete in terms of sheer power against the Cayin iHA-6.

Its a beast. I bought a used unit in 2017 for $475. I still love it and its the only componet that i dont consider upgrading.

love that shots with cat, the IEM color matches with cat’s eye👍 Also someone with Moondrop S8 praised which is a very positive sign for me.
[edit] love his russian accent! Nice international audio enthusiast’s review:


[edit]
asking the shop if $350 to $255 discount code is still available. If for $255, I believe it may worth a blind buy..
