Chifi Headphone Recommendations

So I’ve been using the same old Sennheiser HD25 for 10 years now and feel that maybe it’s time for something new. I happen to be going to China later in the year so I’ve been looking at Chinese headphones in particular.

I see people recommend the BLON B8/BossHiFi B8/Sivga SV006 a lot, but not many comparisons to headphones other than the Takstar Pro82. Zeos said great things in his review of them, but how good are these headphones actually? Are they better than the ATH-M50x for example?

Other ones that have caught my interest are an open version of the BLON B6/MSUR N550, and one of the DIY IE800 clones that were popular a year ago. There have particularly been glowing reviews of these IE800 clones by well-regarded Chinese reviewers. I know IEMs and headphones aren’t really comparable, but if these IE800 clones really were similar to the IE800, would they be better then the Sivga SV006 then?

Edit…Sorry for the miss quote…

I don’t know about the Sivga, but I found the IE800 to sound very V shaped. So I really disliked them. What kind of sound are you looking for?

The ie800 was pretty v shaped, and I didn’t like them that much either. And cmon, attached cables?

Yeah I guess they kept the fixed cables to minimize size. It’s dettachable at the middle for what that’s worth lol

I still own my IE80, and I would say it sounds better then the ie800 imo lol. Heard both at the same time, and went with the 80

I would say they are all better than the m50x’s. but if your in that price range chi fi IEMs are really good. like tin hifi, moondrop, KZ, and fiio to name a few.
