About this deal

The nozzle filters are screwed on – the red filter is on by default. The 2-pin connectors are slightly recessed into the housing. Please note that aftermarket cables with qdc connectors will not work with such recessed 2-pin ports. The nozzle can be screwed off and swapped. SIMGOT included two sets of detachable nozzles that are easy to remove and install. Each variant will provide a different tone and presentation.

The Dunu Kima are warmer, denser in note weight, and even more relaxed in the treble region. Midrange also sounds more articulated in comparison. They do not show the grain or unevenness of the EA500 due to a more muted treble response. Although I had a fairly modest experience in regards of the whole Simgot line-up, having only tested its higher model which was the EN1000. Despite, this is not a direct comparison to the EN1000 but the humble EA500 has an ergonomically much comfier fit and design compared to the EN1000, I did still have to take them off though occasionally after a while due to its size and slightly heavier nature which causes my ears to sore especially around the cochlea region. Isolation were also wasn’t a key prowess of the EA500, it filters out noise fairly decent. Based on my personal experience I could hear much of the things going on within my surroundings, this of course depends on how secure one could fit the large chassis of this IEM I can see a EA500 CULT being born and have a following like the OH10 a IEM that you wont ever sell. Although the Olina SE has a bump in the upper midrange and lower treble regions, the EA500’s mids are more pronounced and visceral. The treble region is also more exciting on the EA500, with sparkly highs that the Olina SE fails to match. Technicalities-wise, KIMA has an average to above average sound/speaker stage dimensions on width, depth and height. It has a more 3D-like presentation compared to a concave spatial presentation on EA500. Resolving capabilities are similar on both sets.

With regards to technicalities, the Star River are very watered down. Imaging is noteworthy, but note edges are blunted, the soundstage is average in all three dimensions, micro-details are middling, and instrument separation is mediocre.

Are they uncomfortable? Certainly not. They are lightweight overall, small, and fit fine so long as I don’t walk around much. I’ve found that walking around in a market or going on a short walk is something that I cannot do with the EA500 and without readjusting very often. The EA500 has this uncanny ability to create nice layers within the imaginary stage that I hear. There is a sense of space, that’s for sure. However, inside that space is distinct and partitioned off elements of that stage which sound as though they are localized fixtures and sit isolated in their own little space. So, Separation is great, which brings us naturally to imaging. Imaging Of course that does not mean that the EA500 is a perfect earphone. The low frequencies do not have the quantity and depth, at least not at the level I prefer. I prefer models with better low frequencies like the KZ products or the Open Audio Mercury (early versions), and the EA500 falls short in terms of massiveness and sounds a bit thin to me. The EA500 didn’t have the lowest extension this song deserves , but and a big one - the bass and droning , cascading hits were presented with very nice texture well done SIMGOT - Metal Cavity magic ?"To sum up, I find listening to such an IEM to be incredibly satisfying. It is impressive for an IEM in this price range, where the technical specifications are higher than those of IEMs in this price range, to sound so clear and precise. Anyone who enjoys detailed and clean response that sounds close to mid-centric presentation with excellent treble extension should consider the Simgot EA500, in my opinion. If there is only one tunable DD king at the budget segment, the Simgot EA500 easily take the throne. Vs. DUNU Titan S Next, apart from the pinpointly accurate imaging, the detail retrieval that this IEM possseses were also one of the key strength. Despite it would not render subtle nuances and microdetails delicately, this IEM is still capable to dish out tons of macrodetails and high-level textures out of your music, which does unsurprisingly dulls out when equipping the red nozzle. Separation and layering was also seems to be well-executed in separating vocals from other elements similar to its bigger brother the EN1000. But avoid all of such praises fool you, occasionally while the vocals between passages were separated, other instruments/precussions poorly tend to meld and layered onto each other. It plays nice with cheap sources and middle-tier ones, I like the EA500 on my Hidizs AP80 portables and my TempoTec V6.

The chassis is fashioned from metal, with a mirror-like, hand-polished alloy faceplate. I’ve no complaints on the build front; these IEMs are very solidly made. The tuning switch board is found on the sides of the shells. At 123 dB/Vrms sensitivity, the EN1000 are very easy to drive and should run well out of most budget dongles. Anything with 1Vrms or higher voltage swing should be sufficient. Comparisons Vs Dunu Kima The upper mids are just a tinge forwards, with a 9dB pinna gain ensuring vocals are in front without being overly shouty. Treble In terms of build, both of these IEMs are stellar. Kima has a matte finish which can better withstand scratches. The midrange of the EA500 provides a great balance between accuracy and musicality. It’s neither too harsh nor too smooth, and it offers a natural sounding midrange. Instruments and vocals sound clear and detailed, with a good sense of depth and plenty of fine detail. The soundstage is good, with plenty of texture and dimension. The sound is well-balanced across the frequency range, with a slight emphasis on the midrange. The sound is not overly bright or overly warm, but rather natural and balanced. The treble is crisp and clean, with good extension and airiness. The bass is tight and punchy, with a good sense of power and impact. Overall, the sound is very well balanced, with a good sense of detail, dynamics, and clarity. Treble


What’s impressive about the EA500’s midrange is its dynamic range. It can convey a wide range of emotions, from bright and cheerful to sombre and melancholy. The mids have a captivating quality that draws the listener in, with layers of nuance and detail that reveal themselves over time. I am also super elated that the splitter piece is not obtrusive, or heavy. When you wear headphones all day and you move around, you tend to notice things like that. The EA500 have a more exciting tuning, and the mid-treble clarity pushes details forward. The mids are less smooth sounding than on the Kima, though, and stage depth and imaging are also better on the Kima to my ears.
