Wow, Canon's price just got even crazier - it was included in the "3$ off 30$" sale, so it's now down to 298$...
https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005002718514857.html

Not that 33$ savings are such a big deal on an IEM that should be priced in the $1000+ range, but if you were planning to buy it - now is a great time.
You need to use the mobile app to get the 33$ discount.

I'm thinking of buying a 3rd one...

Nice but it says that I can't participate in this promotion, also lets not forget about the import duties. For me it would cost 414$ in total. Surely it is still a good price for this set.

Why would it show you the promotion, but deny your participation? Does it give any reason?

Got my Canons today, very happy :) I'll drop some photos soon, it seems that they removed the faceplate pattern and now the entire shell looks the same now vs. the earlier models. Either way, super satisfied. Don't have any TOTL things to compare them with, though. Did get that wow-effect from them, after mainly listening to GS Audio GD3A. Great details, tuning, all that stuff - can't find a single thing I don't like about them yet. Will be listening more and trying different tunings. Managed to snatch them up at $330 and avoid tax.

I'm guessing they stopped with the promo.
I have asked the store - turns out this promo will start on March 7th.
Don't know why Aliexpress shows it like this, it's very confusing.
Anyway, in 3 days it will work.

What is your source dap/dac/amp ???
And how these babies sound straight out of a good smartphone like Galaxy S21 ?

S21, like most smartphones nowadays, doesn't have the 3.5mm jack.
So it's all up to to the Amp/DAC dongle or BT receiver used...

Canon is astronomically better than GD3A, so you are in for quite an upgrade.
Really interested to see the new shells. Liked the old ones, but it could be great to have a 3rd one with a different shell - less confusing.

HBB, or BGGAR, is going to do a review on the Canon, and will compare with Tea and Tea MK2. Excited to see the review!
After he praised the original Tea as the only IEM you could ever need at any price, I started to discount his opinions heavily.
Tea is more of a 100-150$ IEM, overpriced at 300$.

I guess YMMV, right. My buddy A/B my Aladdin with his Tea and did a nice write-up here: https://forum.hifiguides.com/t/the-...and-experiences-sharing-discussion/30319/1637.
I haven't listened to the Tea so I cannot share my thoughts, but I consider both similar in grade and maybe Canon will be a legitimate upgrade to both...?
