About this deal

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Its body is smooth, with no sharp corners, and although the short nozzle forced me to use L-tips with a shallow insertion, I don't consider this a problem. Although the presence of the mid range is really good, the bass on the Z300 is more prominent in the sub bass region. Note: Timings might be affected due to festive seasons or other unforeseen circumstances What happens if the parcel has been shipped but not delivered?

Midrange​There are a fair amount of bleed from midbass into the mids, but not to a degree where it affects the listening experience. Even if the timbre is dark, it maintains a certain clarity in the medium and high frequencies which makes it pleasant. It takes a leaf-like form factor with a teardrop design on its face plate, it has a lesser amount of inclusions but the product presentation is way better. In FPS games, such as CS2 ( without changing the sound settings ), the Z300's bass causes problems in understanding the communication of its companions, as well as tending to mask steps in more intense exchange situations. It should be noted that the construction is quite good, as is the detailing, but the capsules are heavy in the hands.Honestly, while I have understood the appeal of previous HBB tunings to a vast amount of people, I haven’t really fallen in love with any of them. I like to think that the inexpensive dynamic drivers are not only winning in the low end, but they also offer good performance in the treble, adding a more appropriate, accurate and balanced timbre to the sound.

Bass trumpets and bass trombones fare better on this one as they sound fuller and warmer with darker timbre. In the midbass range, there is a bit of a boost above what would be my personal preference, however, as the bass range is well controlled, keeping notes fast when they need to be and without interfering with other sounds happening around them, I find the midbass to be quite enjoyable. Knowing that HBB has a library that consists of a lot of rock, and that I have found many of his other collaborations to be overly boosted in these ranges for my personal preference as far as rock bass is concerned, I found the bass guitar in “ Whole Lotta Love” to be nicely present in the tuning of the Z300. The BLON Z300 was tuned by HBB , and as is inherent to Hawaiian tuning , this is a headphone with a lot of bass weight, but we'll talk about that later. It has less punchy and tighter bass response but it has cleaner quality, it has a more neutral and a transparent midrange with just a sufficient warmth on it and a similar treble response but it has a tad shimmer to give a sense of clarity and detail.Compared to Z300, Cadenza sound profile has a more neutral approach as it has mild-U shaped tonality.

In other words, it is a phone that has an interesting stage, but is restricted only to the sides, with minimal or perhaps non-existent three-dimensionality. It's no secret about HBB's love for BLON BL03, which is in fact reflected by his very first collab, the Tripowin Mele as an attempt to recreate the magic of BL03. Fortunately, the treble avoids sinking into the sound, helping to maintain balance and homogeneity throughout the sound range.I don't want to tire myself, almost equally, if I remember correctly, the bass of 03 is a little tighter. The IEM housing is all metal, 18K gold-plated zinc alloy for the gold colourway option which I have for review. There is a little bit of savoury aftertaste that lingers just long enough to add a hint of fun and juice.

Even so, there is a certain quality to trying to express and tease out some of the hidden mid-frequency detail that is eloquent and noteworthy.

Alas, while I think Mele was a good IEM, it did not really recapture BL03's musicality and timbre in my opinion. Founded in 2014, its catalogue includes the BL-03, a model that it has not yet been able to surpass. Has BLON redeemed itself through this collaborat I believe it was my third or fourth headphone in my life, and that soft and cozy sound immediately enchanted me, so much so that I keep my BL01 with affection to this day.
