Did anyone else have their order cancelled?
How would you compare these to something like the massdrop plus universals or the custom art fibae 1?
wonder how these stack up against the BVGP DM6.. or aso the new FIIO FA7. currently using the dm6 and love them. but been thinking about FA7 since they actually have all Knowles in them

Pleasant sound. Smooth. Reminds me of Sony N3AP. I got a comment in my Youtube vid about this drop. I had no idea. I usually don't pay attention to MD but i thought I'd add this graph to help out. I like it more than the Toneking T88 which I sold.

What would you say the difference between the t88k and this is?

The T88 sounded like a bunch of BA drivers. The PMV sounds like 1 dynamic. I don't think more drivers means better sound. Everyone pretty much knows that I think? I had to ask which PMV was the all BA and which was the hybrid. It's usually clear but was not with this set.
Bad guy good audio has an unboxing of these. He gave a quick listen. It Sounded positive as he said they may be his new favorite
What's wrong with the price here??

Thanks for the info.

No problem. If you need translation or exchange rate conversion, just let me know.
Hmm, these seem like a nice looking and sounding IEM! If anyone has heard these before, I'd love to know your thoughts! I still haven't thrown down on the K10U yet but I think I'm going to add those to my collection after I pay off my MINT CONDITION Schoeps KCY 250/5 cable I just bought used from a friend for $500😎👍🎶🎧🎙️
While I know more drivers doesn’t not mean better sound but damn, 8?! I have not jumped into the world of BA IEMs before this might be a good start? What do you all think? I’ve had experience with the NuForce EDC and RHA 750. But that’s about it.

https://www.head-fi.org/threads/ak-custom-hybrid-iem-discussion-impressions.819482/page-3 kimD said it made him ditch his Andromedas. After i bought it, he reveals he's using a ridiculous EQ . Also I was never happy with any "andromeda killers" until I actually bought an Andromeda myself

Odd he'd compare them to Andros especially when talking about BA bass. Would make more sense to compare against another hybrid like the Dorado, Polaris, or Solaris.
Heard some discussion about this is a step up from Toneking T88K. But the discussion mentioned that DM6 is the one to buy.

This is exactly how I feel about my K10U and T88K comparison. Plus the T88K fits the entire ear, punches harder especially when listening to zeds dead. Crescent said to be tuned by music lovers while T88K tuned by earphone repair tech.
It's not just about the driver count both the Andro and K10U are made of metal, and are CNC milled, and sporting very fancy paint jobs and coatings. They also have MUCH more premium accessories and warranties and both sport fancy cables. Add it all up and their pricing at least starts to make more sense. I'm also going to assume we don't have distortion plots or impedance/phase plots, CDS's, etc for this drop so we're also missing another piece of the puzzle. Looking at that FR chart above, I raised an eyebrow as it just looks... odd for an 8BA IEM. To me, the low-end looks as if it's encroaching on muddy/warm due to that massive hump and due to highs being pulled down by comparison. Also those peaks at 2k and 8k are known points of thin, bright treble that can come off as piercing. I dunno, the more I look at that FR chart the more questions I have compared to some folks "listening impressions" ... And just a comparison to the Andro and UERM as someone above said these are "smooth" sounding. Nothing about their FR looks smooth to me, especially next to the Andro:

Also notice the area around 2k is flattened and 8k is pulled down with a nice linear low end that is not encroaching on the rest of the FR. To me this is how a smooth, mid centric IEM should be tuned, relatively speaking.

349$ instead of 329$ ??
