This LP6 is really something. Lately when I demo new IEMs I'm always wondering how much of what I'm hearing is latent within the IEM and how much is the sheer beautiful sound quality of the source. LP6 creates this natural and clear yet full bodied and analogue soundscape-- it envelops and flows over you and makes me wish I could literally dive into it. It's intoxicating and utterly inviting. I've auditioned about a dozen IEMs through it right now and I'll be damned if every session doesn't leave me a little more enfatuated with the seductive, delicate yet ballsy, transparent yet full bodied, highly technical yet tonally perfect sound that comes out of this little gold brick. 5 stars.
Excellent single dynamic driver in this thing. Warm and impactful bass. The treble and extended upper frequencies sound natural. Not too hectic or too pushed but enough to give a pleasing amount of clarity and detail. The set as a whole has excellent separation and good sized stage. But the mids and vocal range are what sets the Oriolus apart. Vocals feel real. Perfectly positioned as if you were standing an arms length from the singer and has a natural physicality that is rare for an IEM. They’re more versatile than a mere vocal specialist. The bass which gives warmth to vocals has got more than enough weight to handle EDM. But the vocals are the star here. Excellent, but… the price. These are expensive. But if you prioritise vocal presentation then there’s not much better.
Needed a cable to connect Qudelix 5K to my iPhone 14 Pro Max, this worked.

To start, I was almost annoyed by my friend in China about this IEM. He kept telling me how good the build quality is, and how musical the sound is..
So here I am again, I got a pair of Eclipse from my favorite HIFI Retailer, Musicteck.
Design and fit:
This IEM is coupled with Baihe's design inspiration (The designer of Softear Turii), it is derived from a "solar eclipse". Personally, I really like the vertical stripes on the outer ring and the visual collision brought by the smooth and concave metal panel. In terms of design completion, it also fits the sense of "solar eclipse" very well. Besides the interweaving of light and dark, a solar eclipse is a process that changes over time with light changes. You will find a different sense of light and shadow when you look at this earphone from different angles. At the same time, the wearability is also excellent (better than Turii, LOL!). Although the fit is not as extreme as some best-fit iems like Dunu SA6, it still provides good comfort.
I wouldn't classify Eclipse as a super-flat IEM. It has a clear advantage, and does not intend to compete in all aspects. For example, in terms of creating a large soundstage, Eclipse can't compete with other high-end dynamic models such as IE900. However, Eclipse's ability to reproduce live performances is pheonomial, which should be felt by users with some listening experience. Whether it is pop or classical music, it can reflect the corresponding soundstages by the change of the recording space. The instrumental positions expressed by Eclipse are arranged in a fan shape with slightly forward imaging. The vocal is rich and slightly dark, I can feel an extremely realistic sense of presence.
Conclusion: I still recommend doing a demo with this iem but if you are into relaxed-sounding iems with dynamic IEM's bass, this is the one.
