The KB EAR Diamond is significantly better in all respects than any other IEM I have heard in the sub-$100 space, to include the Dunu DM-480 and the Shozy Form 1.1. I will update this section at a later date with a comparison to the Moondrop Starfield, which I have not yet received.

They’re exceptional earphones which combine fun, great technical ability, great design and good-quality materials in a single, affordable product. There are more neutral offerings out there, and more technical too, but the Shozy Form 1.1 have the mix of qualities many people are looking for. It goes straight to the best earphones page!

Add all of the ingredients together – the increased comfort, improved noise-cancelling and serious audio ability – and you have as close to the perfect pair of noise-cancelling headphones as it’s currently possible to find.
There are rivals out there that can beat them in specific areas, but none offer the same exceptional all-roundedness. Taken as a whole the Sony WH-1000XM3s are simply sensational – the perfect long-haul travel companion, office upgrade or daily commute enhancement.

While I did have a dig earlier about the price, when you’re hearing and feeling a positive improvement with most earphones, it starts to justify itself and I think picking a pair up is a pretty risk free purchase that should reward your earphones performance, especially if your using a mid to top tier earphone or something that your struggling to seal with. Tips can be underestimated and I think a good pair are essential for great sound.

Are you kidding? For $49USD this is a steal. The BTR1K has an excellent build quality and will let you connect your 3.5mm headphones to your phone or another Bluetooth source, yet without sacrificing much quality at all. It feels fantastic to drop my phone in a bag or my pocket and connect my Zen2 earbuds to it while I shop, or go about my day.
