I like warmish, analogish, organicish, smooth, airy, clear and sweet-ish iems. All the words used in the previous sentence is likely to mean jack shit since we might have different perceptions. But if on average the iems you like contain the above words, keep reading or just skip it. Was that title too much? yeah i think its too much. More accurate might be "The Highest Value Earphone". But i think its still worth getting really excited over. People who know me, know that i change iems and headphones faster than taylor swift changes boyfriends. Here's a list of my previous girlfriends and one night stands in order to boost my iem reviewing e-peen. I've owned (the more illustrious ones) - Fitear TG334! - Fitear Paterre - Fitear Fitear - Fitear Melomane - Fitear 212 - Alo Jupiter... Actually the list might be shorter if i list down iems/ciems i have not heard/owned. - Spiral Ears Yeap, that's about it. Empire Ears, Noble, 64 Audio, JH, UE, Ocharaku, Kumitate. At some point in my life I've owned all if not most of the TOTL universals, and heard very extensively most of the customs available. Prior to today, my absolute favorite iem was the Fitear Fitear (USD 900). Now i'm not so sure. It had some of its shine dulled approximately 1 hour ago by an iem called the TFZ Series 3 that cost, wait for it... 58 bucks on amazon. Jesus fucking Christ. Their flagship cost, wait for it, 92 bucks. =_=. The one thing that i really loved about the Fitear Fitears, was how relaxed, coherent and sweet it sounded. Just so musical. Kind of like heroin, or southern sweet tea. These did everything the fitear's did. The main difference, if any, is its slightly less refined (the phrase i and many other use in order to justify how our earphones costing 10-40 times more is better). The difference is so slight, it might as well be a placebo effect. And the build... jesus christ. I had absolutely no complaints. These could cost 20 times more and its still good enough. I still remember how i went into the shop meet with both of my LCD 4's to try out a couple amps. Quite a few people came in order to try out the audeze's and brought their Jupiter's, Fitears, Shure's and whatever else. In the end, these 56 dollar iems got the most head time. And ill say what no other reviewer would say, these walked side by side the Fitear Fitear; petted the heads of the Jupiter and K10U's tenderly yet patronizingly; stomped on the Roxxane, Layla, Rosie and U12 and absolutely smashed... well nothing was really smashed, you cant outclass something so completely when they have 10-40 times your budget. While listening to these, i kept thinking about what Jason said in his newest Schiit blog post on how the best way to revive the hifi industry is to sell insanely good things at normal human prices. Well, these are selling at children pocket money prices. If something is going to save the audiophile industry, its China and Schiit. Here's a Facebook post by one of my friend on its lower end sibling the TFZ series 1. https://www.facebook.com/groups/328153377366066/permalink/580396615475073/ The amazon link https://www.amazon.com/TFZ-SERICES-...8&qid=1466248438&sr=1-1&keywords=tfz+series+3 The TFZ 1 is a bit more bassy, the TFZ 3 is just right. I have not heard the TFZ 5's. For people in south east asia or not USA in general, contact these guys. Disclosure (They are my friends, but i dont make anything off any sale) https://www.facebook.com/StarsPickerAudio/?pnref=lhc As usual YMMV, i'm not sure if its a bit of a new toy syndrome. But if it is, this is the first time the new toy syndrome happened to me over something costing just 57 bucks.
