About this deal

Overall, the Simgot EA500 is a solid choice for those seeking a high-quality, yet affordable in-ear monitor. The polished alloy shells may be prone to smudging, but their premium construction and comfortable fit make up for it. Just be careful with the volume settings and make sure previous volume levels from the models you used before the EA500 are not set to active. Some sources let you disable retaining the previously used volume setting, so be careful because the EA500 is supremely efficient. Overall, EA500 is solid in materials, has restrained tuning, and provides the option of changing nozzles. With a not-so-high price point, it can be a great choice for users who want a high price-to-quality ratio. In fact, the EA500 is so efficient that I cannot swap between the Stellaris and a few other IEMs and then swap in the EA500 without first making sure I drop the volume down.

Review: TRI Star River - Cry Me a River - Headphonesty

The interior is lightly dampened but it seems the intent was to allow as much of the metal interior to play a part in the sound and tonality offering.

I can see a EA500 CULT being born and have a following like the OH10 a IEM that you wont ever sell.

Simgot EW200 Review: I’d take it over the EA500 : r/headphones Simgot EW200 Review: I’d take it over the EA500 : r/headphones

Since this unit tour was organised by the kindly people at Linsoul, I am grateful to them. And as I've said in all of my evaluations, the same is true for this one: all of the concepts I've expressed below are entirely my own, original ideas that haven't been influenced by anyone else. If interested, go to this link. Stage is very 3D not huge kept within your headspace with good depth and width sounded very spacious not just L + C + R In keeping with the V-shaped profile, the lower midrange is recessed. The previously mentioned mid-bass bleed warms this area, though the midrange is opaque due to the bass encroachment. I saw these IEM's and what can I say there is a special place in my heart for full on metal shells, it certainly does something special for the IKKO Obsidian OH10 and the same exact thing can be said for the EA500!To sum up, I find listening to such an IEM to be incredibly satisfying. It is impressive for an IEM in this price range, where the technical specifications are higher than those of IEMs in this price range, to sound so clear and precise. Anyone who enjoys detailed and clean response that sounds close to mid-centric presentation with excellent treble extension should consider the Simgot EA500, in my opinion. The D-Fi are easy to drive. Amplification may provide a tighter bass with better dynamics but is not essential. However, when you feed it with more power, it sounded even better, tighter bass, and a little more punch, also sounded more open, this is when i turned on the gain+ mode on Earmen Angel, feeding it with 7.2 vrms via the SE out and extracting more “sonic performance” out from the EA500, impressive scalability Instrumentation simply has this unprocessed and nimble musicality which carries good resolution. Perhaps they could use a bit of blunted weight and a bit more of a robust emphasis on different instruments, but I can’t help enjoying the open sound with great imaging and separation. Perhaps the timbre isn’t completely perfectly spot-on either, but I don’t think it’s necessarily off at all. In fact, I really enjoy it. There is simply a vibrance added to the timbre which almost adds a glow. I realize that probably made no sense but… Let’s pretend it did. Lower-midrange If there is only one tunable DD king at the budget segment, the Simgot EA500 easily take the throne. Vs. DUNU Titan S

Simgot ea500 review, actual potential or just a hype train? Simgot ea500 review, actual potential or just a hype train?

One thing I’ve noticed is that the EA500 simply are marvelous at reacting to different tips. As with every earphone I’ve ever put in my ears I must go through every eartips that I own. I have gone through every type of tip you could imagine. Wide-bore shallow, medium-bore KBear 07 types, narrow-bore Final E’s, Spinfits and everything in between. I finally ended up using (subject to change) a pair of Hybrid silicone/foam tips with a medium-bore and Final E-tips. The upper-midrange glare is slightly leveled off a bit using both of these different sets of tips, while the dynamism, stage width, and extension that I enjoy with the EA500 remains. So, play around, everyone is different. One thing I can promise is that you will see a variety of changes based upon the tips you do choose. Build / Design / Internals / Fit Build

A Bach-inspired Hammond Organ M102, I seriously love it and its unique sound with Annie's voice this is so cool) Not all hype trains are merely hype my friends. Sometimes the hype carries a semblance of justification, and sometimes… it’s flat-out justified! The EA500 certainly has some big shoes to fill if it is going to usurp some of the best. The Simgot EA500 everyone… It gives more shimmer and sizzle on the cymbals strikes to give a good airy extension (for a single DD). Oh yes , Amazing at 0:38 Alanis's voice changes with the mic position. This so cool first time I heard this and not will be listening for it on everything." There sounds like a bit more air and extension in the highs of the Simgot EA500 making female vocals clearer.

SIMGOT EA500 Review — Headfonics

Although, the emphasis does brought some positives in some respect which I personally think the EA500 does benefit from it. This also came with a cost, whereby the added upper-bass to midrange causes the mids sounded slightly hazy and muddy. Both nozzles does not seem to be able to reduce this effect as the red nozzle only seemed to make it a tad less muddy and controlled yet the haziness still persist. Moreover, the upper midrange region could get a tad shouty and intense occasionally, even though it was not severe but it is certainly something that users would notice.

I did not find driver flex, but this may depend on the ear tips used and your ear anatomy. Isolation is below average because of the vented housing. Internals The bass region has good impact yet some claim it has a slightly tame bass response. I love some good bass and the EA500 is certainly enough for me but I’m positive that some may need a little more. I could use a bit more. Adding a filter to the front vent does help in this regard. I know because it is one of the first things I did upon receiving the EA500. However, this is a review of the original and authentic sound of this set, mods are for later. Note weight is on the thinner side, and timbre has a metallic sheen in the higher frequencies, especially when acoustic instruments come out to play. The timbre is even more artificial when the red/blue switches (second tuning profile) are utilized, so timbre is not a strong point for the Star River.
