I auditioned the Spring 2. Liked it, but felt the stage was a bit narrower than Penon Orb.
Recently the BQEYZ Summer is garnering rave reviews. Did you have chance to listen to it? I will have it for review this month or next month. Presently Moonddrop Aria is on its way to me.
Yes, they're not bad without filter mesh IMO....and Spring2 stage closing can be affected by this very clumsy ''mesh'' too.

All in all, for the price, in stock form, its a fail to my ears. Tamed dynamic, same thick thumpy (Spring serie) bass that lack natural extension-rumble, lack of air.

I review them here lol

damn stop guys....just stop LOL
i scan every info and im like...ok, its no hyper look at me things.

my brain already try to find a way to grab those....

is it a new or oldish IEM?

Oh, man, trying to explain the abstract sound world isnt easy indeed, at least for me which im french too, tbh, im 100% always disappointed by what i write. You can pretend to be confident, but as soon as you enter ''third eye'' critical listening mode you have doubt. I'm full of doubt. Thus i will never be a self proclaim audio guru like some...wannabe. With the help of some graphs to compensate lack of confidence....in audiophile doubt.

Common people dont even get our geeky blabla..

But at least, it help to figure sound portrait when they does. I guess.

Im more intrigue by those than the AWW hybrid.
If you're ever in doubt about how to describe something you're hearing, just post a media link to the song you're listening to in your review. Then you can say "listen to this part of this song. I'm hearing ..." to help people understand. It's a nice way for us to listen along and see if our IEMs are good enough or not to pick up on what you're noticing. It's also a fun way for us to find new artists to listen to. Sometimes it doesn't even have to be that technical. Z Reviews has made quite a youtube following for himself through his non-technical, charismatic audio reviews.

Sales start on the 15th of June and continue through the 22nd. I'm not sure which of these dates will be affecting sales on audio gear, so keep an eye out for good deals.
Thanks again! I am aiming to buy some CEMA Electro Acousti Cables, so looking out for that primarily.

This is why I include example tracks and which part I am focusing on in my reviews.

If you happen to run across any spectacular deals that you feel like sharing, I think that might be suitable "discovery" content. Maybe... Just be a bad influence on our spending habits.

Seems Qudelix is releasing their own IEM called QX-Over Earphones: https://www.facebook.com/qudelix/posts/544196400288086

Think they are better known for their Dac/amp stuff, but interesting to see how this set turns out.

I believe that set is meant to be used only with their 5k amp though.

Yeah think so, looks like there's some lame proprietary connector there, sigh.

It's strange how polarized the reviews of the Summer seem to have been so far, regarding technicalities more so than on the rather subjective question of tuning. For example, other reviewers claim that the Summer bass speed and tightness is much improved from the Spring series contrary to your findings.

I have a pair on the way and have no idea what to expect! Which, after all, is likely to be for the best.

I decided to put in an order for the GD7B, and I'm glad I did, as their pricing has increased a bit since then. It's still pretty reasonable, but whatever. I decided to take the plunge after chatting with their rep and learning that they can use different resin and faceplates when assembling your IEM without any extra charge. I got them to make it with the shell design from the SD3 because I liked its aesthetic more than the blue ginko pattern. I'll post pics and impressions when it arrives.
