Hello guys,

New to the iEM rabbit hole!

Until 50euros which to choose from? As I have seen till now:

1. Zero 2
2. or the more expensive RUTHEAR x Crinacle Zero-RED?
3. or the cheap Tancjim ZERO. (I think I gonna like it)
4. Or Moondrop Arya?
5. Or 7hz Crinacle Zero 2

Or something else?

My headphones noware HD600, AKG K550,K701

Too confused!!

Thanks you

Thank you for the suggestion.

Have you heard Tancjim ZERO? I thought it was a good cheap allrounder for the price with good soundstage.

I thought will be a good option that covers most of the genres the Tancjim like HD600 like coca cola!

Thanks

These are my best-liked choices. I've tried many other IEMs.

Hello yes I know its about preferences and personal taste. I just do not want any v shaped iem, but good soundstage and good tuning.

Now I see there is another one in the list the Moondrop Chu and I as I see seems good one.

So I am skeptical about Chu or Tancjim ZERO as the price is about +-20$

I've had both Truthear zero blue is best for music, vocals, piano, and violin sound fuller. Not good for gaming as bass distortion isn't good around a lot of explosions. The red sounds thinner, but no bass distortion. The red is more versatile, but for music I'll always get the blue.

Truthear Red. It's consistently come out on top when I compared with Tin C2, Moondrop Lan, Moondrop Chu, Truthear Hola, KZ D-Fi, 7Hz Zero, Kiwi Cadenza, Tangzu Waner.

I can add 7Hz Sonus, just a bit over 50€. Light U-shaped, great clarity on entire spectrum but no shoutiness, personally loved.

Is there any user that has tried the Tancjim ZERO so as to have a comparison with thruthear iems?

I bought the Tanchjim Zero DSP as I was interested in the DSP DAC chip.

I tried using the IEMs with all included ear tips as well as with my collection of like 30+ different ear tips.

No matter which one I used, I was not able to get the Tanchjim Zero to seal against my ear canal.

It's the first IEM I bought among ~15 different models that I cannot get to seal.

YMMV.

If you think you like the flat Tanchjim Zero tuning, sort of Etymotic style, an alternative with detachable cable can be the Hzsound Heart Mirror (non Pro).

Didn't try either but from graph it seems more equilibrate.

I'd also add NF Audio RA-10 to the list. They measure similarly to the Etymotic ER2XR, at least that I've seen, and sound similar in reality as well, but are more insertion depth dependent, as their nozzle is quite short.
For me, they are also remarkably comfortable, more than most in-ears. That's presumably thanks to the short nozzle, though I need to use my largest ear tips to get them to stay in securely.

I think the Kiwi ears cadenza and the Simgot ea 200 are very good options.

What about ARTTI, R1. EA200, seem like very well received product, but most likely on the bright side knowing Simgot, maybe something similar to K701 series but with better low end extension. Myself I'm looking for with HD 6** series tonality that will fit my smaller ears.

EW200 against often recommended Aria. Great YT channel IMO

Kefine Delci if you want something more neutral.
ARTTI R1 if you want something with more bass and fun.
EW200 if you are a treble head.
Ziigaat Nuo and Zero:2 if you like shit.

Truthear Red is still my main IEM. Maybe wait for a new Truthear product that's been teased the other day. Simgot EW200 fell out of favor in the last months, even initially many said the treble was problematic when played loud, but I haven't heard it personally.

I wouldn't trust sound demos like that, there's too many variables that can't be controlled in normal measurement graphs. Add to that reproduction equipment like the video does, and assumes transfer curves which aren't disclosed, and it's pointless.

ARTTI R1 is just OK. My personal choice for fun, warm IEMs under $90, I rate Fiio/Jade JD7 on top, followed by Ikko OH300, ARTTI R1, BLON X HBB Z300 then 7Hz Salnotes Zero V2 in that order. YMMV.
