About this deal

I did not find any driver flex on my set. However, this partially depends on ear anatomy and the type of tips used. Internals Doesn't require fiddling with the Equalizer (may be you'd want to pull down 8k hz a tad?). The e3000 definitely needs EQ, without which it can sound bloated / congested particularly on low powered sources No case. This drops it out of the least expensive good "complete kit" challenge (currently held by the Truthears+Crinacle Zero). I paired these iems with Moondrop Moonriver Ti 2 and I can say they do definitely sound so much better than any iem that I have or have owned before. The quality of the sound, the texture, clarity and tonality are very apparent and noticeable to me. They are very comfortable to wear and lightweight. The cable does not produce any noticeable microphonic noise and has 3 types of connection, 3.5 single ended, 4.4mm and 2.5mm balanced connector.

Better Instrument separation. The Zero's thin instruments, more artifacts can make things sound mashed together at times. This may come as a surprise to some. We assume a more transparent (colder) IEM will have better separation. The treble is fatigue-free and smooth, with minimal sibilance, though resolution and micro-details might be dampened due to this tuning choice. Comparisons The soundstage on the Mangird Top is wider than all budget iems that have own and have used before, and the imaging is very precise. This makes the IEM great for listening to music with complex soundscapes and excellent for FPS gaming. I can easily place each instrument in the soundstage or footsteps in gaming. No budget segment royal rumble would be complete without mentioning the big Kahuna: the venerable BLON BL-03. Technicalities and resolution are better on the CHU, but they are markedly more sibilant. The CHU’s timbre sounds very nasal and unnatural compared to the more organic-sounding Wan’er. Where to BuyCable is the same as the Dioko. Cable is ok. Not amazing, but fine. All my gear uses 2.5mm balanced termination, so I switched to some Tripowin Zonie cables. Hilariously, the cables - already among the least expensive 2.5mm cables on the market, are the same price as the ENTIRE Zero IEMs. The Salnotes Zero has a simple and cool-looking design that is made from high-quality materials. The earphones fit nicely in all sizes of ears and provide excellent comfort for long listening sessions. The company is also coming up with its inaugural earbud, christened the Baijuyi. Technical Specifications Timbre is slightly less natural on the Zero, and the Zero may be more uncomfortable due to perpendicular edges in the shells. Vs. Moondrop CHU

Being much smoother and refined (no artifacts) without sacrificing detail in vocals or bass (though yes, sub-bass is missing). For the same level of detail the Zeros seem less refined, not because of more treble energy but because of more artifacts (a hallmark of cheaper gear). Just to be clear, the tuning is excellent on the Zeros not harsh at all (except a tiny spike in the upper treble) Timbre is better on the BL-03. Indeed, the BL-03 are well-known for their timbral accuracy, with only a few budget contenders besting them in this area.The mid-bass hits with quite a good punch, though in terms of quality, it is on the slower side; there’s smearing noted in complex bass movements. Texturing is below average; unfortunately, there is mid-bass bleed, with an undefined bass heard. Midrange The midrange is slightly recessed. The lower mids are warmed by the aforementioned mid-bass bleed, adding some heft and density to the note weight.

Treble quality and timbre. Same as above. The treble (again, though not as extended) on the E3000 is definitely more real, less artificial/metallic sounding. if u want clean balanced sound signature i still prefer CHU...yes as am already said 7hz zero sounds good , but its overhyped by the online community..seems like a new marketing strategy balanced tuning. Couldn't find a single genre which does not sound good with this IEM. It reminds me of the TinnHIFI P1 Max Panda (Planar), very similar tuning. In some songs like Zaalima the Instruments separation is bit weak but in other songs instruments separation is good Tests were done with a Khadas Toneboard DAC -> Schiit Asgard 3 amp, E1DA 9038, Questyle M15, Colorfly CDA M1, Tempotec Sonata HD Pro (BHD firmware mod), Apple dongle, smartphone, Hiby R3 Pro Saber 2022 DAP, and Sony NW A-55 DAP (Walkman One mod) using FLAC and WAV files.Burn-in: About 70hrs. (I'll update the review if I notice an improvement, say after 200hrs of use). The Mangird Top has excellent technical performance. It has excellent detail retrieval, imaging, and soundstage. The IEM is also very well-tuned, with no noticeable peaks or dips in the frequency response.

CX180 got much better sub bass it's clean and hits hard and CX180 mids are much better they sound natural The Wan’er are very easy to drive. Amplification is optional, although these scale with juice in terms of increased dynamics and tighter bass. Frequency response graph of the Wan’er via an IEC711 compliant coupler. 8 kHz region is a coupler artefact peak. The Salnotes Zero IEMs are mid-sized, and they fit well in the ears. They are lightweight and provide a decent amount of noise isolation. This makes them suitable for long listening sessions without causing any discomfort or ear fatigue. Sound Quality: Anyone want me to compare it with anything else in particular? Any song in particular? Here's my list of IEMs currently:The mids on the Mangird Top are slightly recessed, but they're still clear and present. Vocals sound natural and realistic, and instruments are well-defined. The male vocals sound a little thin when compared to Tin Hifi T2 which is a mid-forward iem. In conclusion, we highly recommend the 7HZ Salnotes Zero. It is an excellent choice for anyone looking for their first IEM or for experienced audiophiles who are looking for a great value for their money. Being an inexpensive set, the Wan’er are aptly named after their historical namesake, in tying in with her very modest upbringing as a retainer who got promoted all the way to the prime minister of the Tang Dynasty. The bass on the Mangird Top is deep, impactful, and textured. It's not overly boosted, but it's definitely present and gives the IEM a fun and engaging sound. The bass is also very well-controlled, so it doesn't bleed into the mids or highs. The Salnotes Zero are a neutral bright pair with a thinner note weight than the Wan’er. The Zero sound more sterile and analytical.
