(Chi-fi IEM Review) Geek Wold GK10: The warm sound that drove the world crazy

The Geek Wold GK10 has a mild V-shaped or M-shaped signature, with a warm, full, and stable sound that is comfortable to listen to. This type of sound is also popular among general consumers, just as the final E3000 and SHURE SE215 with si…

(Chi-fi IEM Review) Audiosense DT600: Earphones for audiophiles whose sound changes with amplifiers and re-cabling. The range of sound varies from a thick, full midrange sound to a sparkling, high-frequency flat sound that sounds fantastic!

The Audiosense DT600 is a very geeky earphone that only those who have many audio devices such as DAPs, portable amplifiers, desktop amplifiers, etc. will find joy in. These earphones are really a core product for people who enjoy driving …

(Unboxing) SeeAudio Bravery: IEMs that let you hear the mid-range sound image carefully. At the moment, I personally prefer ANOU.

I got my hands on See Audio's new SeeAudio Bravery, and here are my first impressions.

(Chi-fi IEM Review) TRN X7: Simply poor resolution and unpleasant sound.

Well, TRN recently came out with a product in the $100 range called the TRN X7. I received a review unit of it and upon first listen I realized how terrible it sounded, so this article is going to be really depressing.

(Chi-fi IEM Review) CCZ Plume: A good model that is carefully tuned from the midrange to the mid-high range. However, the expansion of the low-mid range may not be to everyone's taste.

With the name "Plume" and its beautiful golden appearance, I was expecting a light, delicate and elegant sound. I was expecting a light, delicate and elegant sound, like a bird of paradise or a peacock. However, the actual sound of the Plu…

(Chi-fi IEM Review) Cayin Fantasy (YD01): A sound that emphasizes micro-detail. Beautiful grainy cymbal crashes and delicate acoustic guitar tones.

The Cayin Fantasy has a relatively flat sound with an emphasis on detail in the middle and high frequencies, which will delight listeners who prefer grainy cymbal crashes and delicate acoustic guitars like goldwork.The price is a bit stron…

(Chi-fi IEM Review) KBEAR NEON: Warm sound with diffuse sound field. Sweet and transparent midrange is carefully played without feeling tired.

If you are looking for comfort in listening to music and not getting tired of listening, I can highly recommend the KBEAR NEON. Its cylindrical shape makes it easy to adjust the insertion depth, and if you feel any sharpness in the sound, …

(Chi-fi IEM Review) iBasso IT07: Tesla drivers for clear and crisp low frequencies; three types of tuning nozzles for a variety of sounds. An interesting iBasso flagship IEM.

The iBasso IT07 has a musical, midrange-oriented sound with excellent fullness and a soft, thick sound. The best feature of the iBasso IT07 is the clear and high quality low frequency range provided by the Tesla driver. Although the separa…

(Chi-fi IEM Review) Shuoer Conductor: Quite faithful and well-balanced to the Harman target curve, and has the sound image rendering power typical of electrostatic types, but it is a regrettable work that is a bit lacking in micro-detail and atmosphere.

The Shuoer Conductor is characterized by good tuning, almost faithful to the Herman target curve, and extremely high quality high frequencies characteristic of the electrostatic type. And the sense of balance is also quite excellent.

(Monitor IEM Review) ULTRASONE Saphire: Earphones with speaker-like forward localization staging and vocal-centric midrange for careful listening. Electrostatic tweeters provide a quiet yet delicate sound.

The ULTRASONE Saphire has a classy sound that is typical of ULTRASONE, with a forward localized sound field that allows the music to be heard carefully, with a sense of quietness and delicacy. It is bright and vocals can be heard clearly, …

(Chi-fi IEM Review) Shuoer EJ09: Informative, fine-grained, high-detail and high-definition monitor sound. It will be the highest level companion for those who want to enjoy music analytically

To be honest, I've never really seen much value in high-end earphones. My music listening was good enough with cheaper earphones, and they even had better monitoring capabilities than high-end earphones, so I had no need to pay more than $…

(Chi-fi IEM Review) Shuoer EJ07: Fairly faithful to the free-field flat and highly transparent midrange. Wide localization and sound field with depth and low listening fatigue.

(Monitor IEM Review) SHURE AONIC 4: Earphones that maintain a warm listening experience while also rendering details beautifully. Lack of consistency in the midrange and lack of high frequencies are the main drawbacks.

To be frank, the SHURE AONIC 4 is a difficult model for me personally. The only good things about it are the fit and sound insulation, and that's about it. The sound quality is inconsistent in the midrange, the localization sounds a bit in…

(Chi-fi IEM Review) SeeAudio Yume: Well-balanced sound quality with Harman target in mind. Deep low frequencies give music a solid sense of reality.

The SeeAudio Yume is an attractive model with well-balanced sound quality, high clarity yet harmonic and somewhat human sound. With its deep lows and expansive highs, it has a unique sound that is sweet and rich with lustrous vocals, and y…

(Chi-fi IEM Review) Shuoer Singer: Singing earphones that are quite faithful to the free field flat, but with a little more weight in the midrange. Overall package perfection is also high.

The Shuoer Singer is one of the most complete earphones you can buy in this price range in terms of sound quality, flat and suitable for everyone. The nozzle filter is prone to loosening, and the workmanship could use a little more precisi…

(Chi-fi IEM Review) BQEYZ Summer: A fairly well-balanced neutral sound. The midrange sounds lush and natural.

BQEYZ Summer is a new star player in the $100 range. Although it is a hybrid driver model, it has very low distortion and is almost completely neutral, so you can hear the midrange with a texture that is quite close to the original sound. …
