Inexpensive IEMs "Chi-Fi"
« on: June 30, 2020, 01:39:14 PM »
I've been following a few subreddits that discuss budget audiophile systems and headphones lately and am considering grabbing a pair of inexpensive IEMS.

These seem to be recommended for a starter pair:

Tin Audio T2
Linsoul BLON BL03

I'm currently using these, which sound good (Especially for the price) but I want to upgrade, just because:

Anyone have experience with any of these? Removable cable is preferred.

Second the recommendation on  You can score top quality headphones / IEMs for a good discount.  Don't buy the ultra-cheap stuff.

I always liked Etymotics for IEMs, but I prefer my Sennheiser 6XX when listening at home in a quiet setting.
DPA 4061 ~ Line Audio CM3 ~ Naiant X-Q ~ AT 853  |  Naiant PFAs ~ Shure FP24  |  Zoom F6 ~ Sony PCM-M10
MOTU M2 ~ KRK Rokit RP5 ~ Sennheiser HD 650 ~ Etymotic ER4XR

Go to and buy there or use it for research.

Tons of IEM options.

$8?  Come on man, buy once/cry once.

I have these and they're fine.

(Note, if you read the comments on the above EDC, you may be put off by comments of failures. I don't use mine every day but only use them at recording sessions at shows. They live in my gear bag and will prolly last years in this service type. YMMV)

The $8 pair are for doing yard work, etc. I have Grado and A/T cans for processing - these are for fun and mostly experimentation. Thanks for the rec. I'll check it out.
