So, why they call the 5x5 streamlined!? Because it is not a tribrid - the electrostatic driver is missing, exchanged with a BA. So, you miss air, detail, staging.

Yeah, for drops of relatively expensive IEMs, this one did very well. A real winner.

This or Thieaudio Monarch ? Is there any comparison exist out there yet?

Monarch is much more impressive sounding, and higher technical level as well, but they are big and will not fit smaller ears. VxV is more comfortable.

Just posted up my review of these earphones. IMO given the other options at this price, a special and well-rounded package that's especially suited for daily use with a durable BOM, pressure-free yet isolating design and non-fatiguing sound. An added bonus that not many have mentioned is that they are very source agnostic so you don't need a dedicated DAP or AMP to run them - they tolerate a high output impedance and higher noise floor well. This is definitely an overlooked part of owning a high-end IEM day to day. It's resolving and technically accomplished, well-balanced with slightly forward vocals that keeps the sound focused and engaging. The bass isn't the most dynamic and some might want for more warmth in the midrange, the focus here appears to be on separation and cleanliness without too much sharpness in the mids or treble to suit prolonged listening sessions. I've taken some independent measurements below and compared them with other IEMs around this price in my full review here. Enjoy!

“they tolerate a high output impedance" - if you're talking about LID (linear impedance design) or similar technology, then these iems don't have it, sorry. So high output impedance would absolutely affect the sound.

I'm not saying they have a flat impedance curve or were designed specifically for this, but the frequency response doesn't change much with higher impedance sources. I have measurements as well to back this up even if it isn't on the box! Anyway, it's a plus and something to consider.

Holy mother of IEMs! I want these so badly, 90% because of how they look! (Yeah, I know, I know...). /me thinks of customs fees. Alright, alright. Forget it.

Well, we in Europe have to pay more usually, what else is new? :) It is still a better price than buying from local distributors
You're right... It would still be cheaper than shopping locally, at 799$. It'd be little over 980$ with 22% VAT to Italy, or 820€ if you prefer. Seriously tempted soon again! Aargh!

So what the story with coordinates for the middle of field??? Is it a secret meeting place for the owners?

Tried it, and i think it is a very solid option for under 1k$. Great technology and comfort, tuning is a little strange in the mids for me, but if you don't mind a bit of EQ, it's worth it.

Do you really consider someone with an opinion like that to be akin to Hitler? Many people disagree with restrictions. It is alarming to find someone suggesting that people not do business with someone because you disagree with them about something unrelated. Tell someone you respect and is older than you about your comment but don't tell them that you wrote it. See what they think.

Bahaha is this the best you got. Like I said read the bottom. "Or if you shall cry that's not the same. Then buy chinese products, doesn't need to made in merica" You clearly have selective reading skills. Please tell that to "Tell someone you respect and is older than you about your " behaviour "but don't tell them that you wrote" like this. "See what they think" 😂
