oui guys, anyone here who have listened to a variety of TWS wireless earphones? what are the best sounding and durable TWS in two price brackets, ~5k and ~ 10k
Yeah, power output was massively different. For me, the G8X wasn't powerful enough for my HD650, but some people find that the G8X is enough.Did you find any difference between your E1DA and G8X except for power output?
I think both devices are using the same DAC if I am not wrong.
I am not much familiar with R2Rs but heard they are vintage types. All those mentioned by you seems to be of desktop kind and not portable which is my main requirement.
iDSD BL and Mojo goes toe to toe according to many but with Mojo there is an option of adding Poly and making it sort of DAP. Thus giving preference to Mojo currently. I think only mid end Sony that is widely acclaimed is WM1A, are you talking about that..
I don't know what you have against CHI-FI, but the world wouldn't have seen a drastic revolution in the IEM industry if not for CHI-FI.Dear, this thing has the same driver of IE800. You may not like it ( considering you've heard it), but the driver is by no means bad compared to something like FD5 ( Do you sincerely plan to wear FD5 in an airport/ train station?)
I've used IE800 for years, sure they were overpriced, but they sounded fantastic a lot better than Shure SE535 or Westone 4. And they do last for years.
Nothing against Monndrop or any semi expensive chi fi...but I will never spend 80-100 EUR for a chi fi as they all break with time. And the sound quality difference is miniscule and some do prefer the Sennheiser sound.
GIven their absolutely fantastic warranty policy, Sennheiser sure can sell an 300USD IEM and MANY audiophiles with high end chi fi will eventually buy the IE300.
Personally I have at least 20K USD invested in IEM over the years, but when I travel, it was always the IE80 earlier and now the IE40 Pro as the IEM ( it's the least preferred listening option, but has to be the most dependent one for me, so that I have at least something to listen to without fear of breaking it)
old a-45s were amazing ? thoughts on android based a-105s ? Not sure there are better daps for cheaperDon't go by the lukewarm reviews of Sony A series walkman ( specially the non Android ones)
They do have ( at least the one I have and the previous model is pretty much same) very good quality DAC/ AMP and much more powerful than entry level Fiio and all ipods. The battery life is absolutely phenomenal. I don't use the plethora of DSPs. Even without all those, these are genuinely good and simple DAPs.
My impressions on Sony after their wireless cans were not really good. But this has changed things. Sony still have 2 distinct lines of audio products. Afterall they come from the land of craziest audiophiles!!
Chi-Fi is a pile of dust scattered all around in air, the day it settles down we will see their tuning improved which emphasise highs/treble to fake details currently.I don't know what you have against CHI-FI, but the world wouldn't have seen a drastic revolution in the IEM industry if not for CHI-FI.
The IE 800 came in what? 2013/2014? That's like 7-8 years before, which is almost like more than two decades in the world of CHI-FI. Mate, you need to stop living in the past and go forward with time.
It doesn't matter if the IE 300 is using the same driver as IE 800. The shocking thing is - Sennheiser is using a 8 year old tech and expect customers to pay top dollars in 2021. That doesn't happen.
The CHI-FI options in the range of $300-400 that I mentioned above have incredible builds, good quality accessories and sound tonality (and imaging) that beats the IE 300 out-of-the-water.
Sennheiser is basically selling a $50 IEM (maximum value according to build, accessories & sound) disguised as a $300 monitor and that's about it. Even the $30 BLON-BL03s have better build than these.

Only Chi-Fi company I care about is QDC (64 Audio of China), I am not saying that their contributions to the Hi-Fi world is nothing. After Singapore, Hong Kong and Japan there is China that have most number of audiophiles and maybe even more than the former mentioned countries. There were some start-up companies like FLC but most of them haven't survived the Chinese slowdown from what I heard.
The Drop FDX1 is something I want to get my hands on and try it out, do check out the Ikko lineup as well. I subjectively feel its one of the best sub 200$ IEM out there ( barring FDX1 which I have not tried yet).Well there are some exceptions like ThieAudio, MoonDrop, Fearless (boutique companies) and few Dunu models that have proved their metal but I am talking about general trend here and especially sub $100 bracket. For $200 I think JVC FDX1 available on Drop is hard to beat and I advice everyone to save up instead of staying in the $100 range forever.
