Well. You might get caught by some bad cables.

Good cables, including copper cables, are worth trying. upper frequency are not necessarily tamed by any type of cable.

These look pretty damn neat. I don't have a use for them though. And not sure I'd spend 350 on them... The BGVP DMG acdefghijkl IEMs are a heck of a good deal for a hybrid, with sound to back it up (and less than half the price of these)

Sound quality is definitely subjective, no doubt about that. I just prefer not to spend over $150 on any chifi stuff when there are other IEMs from the US that I'd prefer to have (campfire, empire ears, JH) with proven track record, warranty, etc). The DMG just tick a lot of boxes for a budget hybrid IEM. Musical, engaging, easy to drive, comfortable, aluminum shells (IIRC), removable cables and filters to tweak sound. I don't think they sound like trash though? My personal preferences line up with hawaiibadboy (aka bad guy good audio on YT). So I prefer warm, bassy, musical, even dark sometimes - especially over flat and neutral. When he recommended them highly, I figured I'd check them out for a budget pair to have around. Not disappointed at all especially paired with the Hiby R3. My favorites are the Sony XB90EX, JVC fx850, and flare audio R2a (still blown away at the sound that comes out of such a tiny IEM) I'd like to hear the DM5s but I won't pay 350 for them. Maybe they are worth it, I don't know. Guess I just mean it's hard to jump on a pricey IEM. At this point I have enough universals, I really want to get customs. But even that would be a tough choice to make. And I prefer dynamic drivers over BAs any day :)

I was really impressed by the Simgot EN700 Pro. So, I decided to give these a try. I think $350 is a very attractive price. I am a bit salty, because I paid $499 for them when they just came out. They are pretty balance and neutral (not flat) overall. If you love bass, these may not be for you. These are definitely not bass shy. It's just that the bass response is tuned closer to neutral. Treble extends very nicely without being fatiguing. Soundstage and instruments separation are excellent. Of course, you are not going to get the soundstage of a pair of open back headphones. I have not experimented too much with different kind of eartips. I have only been using the neutral tuning set. The packaging is excellent. You are definitely getting what you paid for. If you are mostly listening to acoustic music (e.g. classical, jazz etc), or rock, I think these are a very good choice. They worth every single dim for $350.

I picked up a pair of EM2 on Amazon, and they are still on sale. Although they don't have the level of soundstage and instrument separation of the EM5, they are absolutely great IEMs for under $100. The EM2 can outperform many IEMs in the $100 - $200 range. I also gave the EM3 a try, but I don't like them at all. Yes, they are a step up from the EM2, and the sound signature is closer to EM5. However, the imaging of the EM3 is quite off. They don't sound as coherent as the EM2 or EM5. So, I decided to send them back. It could also be possible that I got a defective pair.

I also bought the EM2 off of Amazon and consider them to be the best in the $0-100.00 range. I also am highly impressed with the EM5's as well! Simgot seems to be a real up and coming company, with very good price to performance products.
