Just a bit of a quick note, I’ve heard /owned blon 03, TIN t2, T4, Starfields for IEMs and for headphones, sundaras, elegías, elex, Nighthawks, 58x etc and each and every one has something that’s nice. But some are a bit thinner sounding for detail, some have great timbre but lack detail or have recessed mids etc etc. Ultimately my setup is always portable and I also listen to music in my bed often. A little over a week ago I lost my ksc75 and needed a new excersise bud and went to Walmart. From there I just picked a cheap ass Sony bud assuming it should be good enough for podcasts and some music while walking. Holy fucking shit it surprised me lol. First of all in many many many ways its not that good, not super fast, little to no highs, pure quantity bass virtually no imaging and pretty compressed sounding BUT does 3 things crazy well. (all those things are in comparison to much much more expensive headphones)
The timbre is actually really really really good (for vocals), the warm sound sig that it has just gives these an amazing timbre. More realistic than the sundara, ksc75, elex when it comes to vocals. It’s also full bodied and surprisingly detailed in the mids only lol. Bass is pure quantity, just 1 tone bass that is boosted ALOT so it’s fun for hip hop. And it dosent bleed into other ranges unlike the blon 03. Treble? Ehhhhhh I think it’s super rolled off since it’s impossible to hear even a hint of sibilance but better than hearing little treble over treble that isn’t well done. From my experience with headphones only the elex truly excelled in removing sibilance from my worst recorded music.
Bass is nice and fun like mentioned before, mids might be slightly recessed but not enough to bother me, and it’s balanced enough as an iem that I I can truly listen to all of my music with it which I was never able to do with any other iem and most of my headphones either (except sundara, elegia, hawks with pleather).
Finally the price, comfort and wireless capabilities. It’s 18 bucks and does timbre, Soundstage and treble (or lackthereof because if ur not gonna do it right just let it roll off instead) right and much better than so much of the crap I’ve listened to. I’ve even slept in my side with these in my ears without being bothered because of the shape, light weight of the design. It’s got a cable around and the buds have magnets so I literally wear it all day like a necklace and just turn it in when I feel like it. I love this so much. If any of you have had similar experiences, use cases (using buds in bed) or want to test these out and have 18 bucks to spare I highly recommend these.
(the pinhole camera vibe when u look at the driver scared me lol
