Got the Airship through Linsoul Amazon and is an excellent buy. I have the Olina which is very, but I like the Airship better. Soundstage, imaging, bass, treble, vocals, mids, it’s got it all. Well worth the money. Highly recommended!
It's huuuuuuuuge for my Peacock Flight, honestly I didn't like it. Feels like a robbery, this item.
The charger it's actually pretty good and the design looks like the B&O one. Feels very solid and we'll assembled in the hands.
I really had some high hopes for this IEM, but the 8KHz resonance was just too much for me. The tuning was pretty much perfect outside of that, so if you could EQ out the peak, it would be a perfect IEM.
Good quality cable
The unit I received has around 5% channel imbalance and driver flex in left earpiece. I've bought much cheaper IEMs and did not find such quality problems with earpieces, it's generally bad cable. But that's opposite here, the S12 cable build is great and I'm sure it'll outlast the IEMs.
Sound wise it's good after adjusting the balance in software. Decent soundstage and directionality. I like the note decay of the planar over the DD, even if they don't move as much air. Wish the QC was better.
This additional protective case for Linsoul Peacock is awful. It’s not designed for this device, it’s too big for it, and very clearly an off-the-shelf product.
Seeing these at half price during the 6.18 sale I thought I'd give them a go, not expecting too much. I generally go for a reference-ish tuning (for comparison I own Tin P1, Etymotic ER2XR and Mangird Tea) and thought the Focus EDM would be a nice addition that is totally different to what I already own.
As others have voiced, I thought these would be very niche and that I would only enjoy them on a very narrow cross section of my library. Not so! In fact, I've been quite impressed by their versatility. They're certainly bass-forward, but the hefty low-end doesn't overpower the rest of the frequency response as I imagined. What you get is an incredibly fun set of IEMs that are (mostly) solidly built (the wood inlays are prone to falling out) with above-average soundstage and competent detail retrieval.
Pictured with the Thieaudio EST cable, which complements them nicely.
Oh boy, was this a pleasant surprise.
I got these, not really expecting much beyond a niche set that I can throw on when I'm in the mood for bass heavy tracks. I'm a writer, so I typically listen to bassy lofi-type beats throughout my writing sessions without vocals. These will be perfect for that, I thought.
And they DO live up to that expectation. What I did NOT expect is how far beyond those expectations these actually go. Not an all-arounder, you say? Niche set, you're thinking? Too much bass to enjoy classical, jazz, or vocal-oriented tracks? You'd be perfectly reasonable thinking that. It's virtually a given, right?
As I'm writing this review, I have Myrkur playing in the background. Her ethereal vocals sound every bit as clear and haunting as they would on my Starfield. Black magic? Some kind of dark enchantment? Maybe.
Are you a fan of more audiophile sets, and you're a basshead? Your mileage may vary, but believe it or not, you may have just found both here.
As for accessories, they are perfectly sufficient. I -like- the cable. It's soft, flexible, light, and feels comfortable in the ear. However, I'm not in love with it like I am the IEMs themselves. I've ordered a few premium cables to try out. These deserve the best. Will they make it sound better? No, but let's not act like we don't care about look and feel. You may also decide to change cables, but know that it's not a necessity. You'll most likely be perfectly happy with the stock cable.
What is a necessity, however, is changing the tips. The material manages to be hard, slippery, and I couldn't get even a decent fit without hurting my ears. I have some other tips lying around, so I experimented for both sound and comfort. My favorites ended up being Final Type E tips, which most of you probably already know about and own, and Moondrop's spring tips. The spring tips offer a fantastic fit, and to my ears produced an ever-so-slight improvement in the sound by making the treble feel a tad more even. Very minor change, but the fit is now amazing. FInal Type E is a very, very close second.
These are now my favorite set, and if you are a lover of the bass, they may be yours as well.
There are three different versions of these, and they have different tuning. The Vocal and Rythm versions are NOT the basshead sets. Don't buy them thinking they are. They are tuned completely differently. The EDM is the one you want, though you may have to keep an eye on the stock.
