Have the Truthear Hola been discontinued?

So after testing various IEMs (Truthear Zero Red, 7Hz Zero:2, Moondrop Chu 2), I still seem to find none that suits my tastes. I was searching for a darker and especially warmer sound with good bass (mostly for extreme Metal, Death and Black, and also Metal concert videos). So I found the Truthear Hola as a recommendation here in the forum to meet my desires. However they seem to be sold out everywhere. Have they been discontinued? Or should I just wait?

Also, while we're at it, any thoughts on the Hola? I heard the bass is pretty weak!? Also, I heard they require an amplifier? Are the not good to use on my Laptop's 3.5mm in?
 
Both the Zero 2 and Truthear Red with the included impedance adapter sound darker/warmer than the Hola:

They're really sold out huh? Maybe they just aren't profitable?
You should try some equalization on your Zero Reds. https://www.reddit.com/r/oratory1990/wiki/index/list_of_presets/ There you can find some for red, I'd recommend the Oratory target which is even warmer.

What comes to mind is some of the latest Crinacle tuned products, Zero 2, Singolo and the coming Dusk 2, all measure fairly similarly

Worth trying if he already owns both. I wish I liked Red with the plug as much as Hola, but it's not the same to these ear canals.

Try BQEYZ KC2. It’s old but it’s so unique it still stands out. I’ve had it for almost 3 years and I haven’t found anything that comes close.

Hola is great too. And it’s available again on Aliexpress.
 
My conspiracy theory is that they were selling them at a loss or close to that to build up a good reputation.

Definitely a success to me, I have a pair of Hola and they sound great, especially considering the low price. Personally I just added a bit of treble with the EQ, but even without they're good.
 
Possible but doubtful, IEMs are not expensive in terms of parts, even nice ones.
I can't see other reasons to discontinue them tho considering the commercial success, either that or they were eating the market of more expensive models, I've seen many times people recomending them over the Hexa for example.
 
Mmm I'm a bit confused, the Holas were a well known name with great reputation, why re release them (implying it's the same model but at least the shell looks the same, just transparent) with a different name? Why not just call them Hola 2 if that's the case? :rolleyes:
