A short impressions of Kinera BD005 IEM.

It was really extreamely long long wait after an order from November of 2016. Yes, It took about 2 monthes from order while package arrived to me with AliExpress standard shipping method – but actually it was China Registered AIR post, maybe it was not AIR … maybe a SHIP ?

With damn long shipping it is eventually now on my hand. It was really damn slow shipping but I can accept all with extreamely low cost (see above page … ) of this 1-DD + 1-BA IEM.

Packaging

I don’t know what brand name means “KINERA” to their word, or in English. And BD005 – model name – may means their 5th model with BA+DD. Ok, then it arrived as below picture:

Boxing was not as like modern saving Earth design, just contains IEM and only 2 different size of silicon ear birds with wrong attached (switched Left and Right, sure it should be fixed anybody, actually not a problem !) durable cable.

It is really all. There’s nothing like protecting IEM something like called soft case or pouch. Just consider price around 20 USD ! and It doesn’t a matter to enjoying good music ! Don’t be concern like Mr.Ban. It’s just another option to buy any carrying case, or pouch whatever it is in AliExpress and may quickly arrives than this IEM.

Appearance

BD005 is not had sexy shape as like major brand products. Just it says “I am from China” and it is truth, because I bought from China, Ha.

But comfort to fix on my ear and easily replace to other cable with MMCX connector. Many sellers in AliExpress who selling many different kinds of MMCX compatible cables. Kinera seems to used one of their products – because I have bought exactly same model MMCX cable from AliExpress before, and its price was almost 8 USD.

Fitting rules is just same like other IEMs, rounding around my ear. Almost of modern ear rounding fittabled IEMs are samely using this forms. MMCX connector well assembled in IEM itself. I couldn’t find any problem in this small friend.

BA unit (as their explainment, it is from Knowles, 3K models) is placed on near end of nozel and it recognized by sight easily. There’s no structure to hold ear bud as like some IEMs.

Audio experience

Make a subject of conclusion, it is not like other some fully filled bass brother Hybrid IEMs. Well balanced for each sides. Little bit more bass means it is “For Outdoor” but may excellent for using in door too. As my opinion there’s little bit less in high frequency by private favor, it should  be enhanced by adjusting EQ. I recommend use Treble boot if you have iPhone and listen music with shiny treble frequency – but it may a reason of you going be tired more faster than normal listening, it’s just up to you and me also.

 

Conclusion

Maybe really worth the low cost in around 20 USD. Much better than Xiaomi’s hybrid IEMs – actually not recommend Xiaomi’s, too much bass harms all sound – and KZ’s. Without design, all about good features may found by in real life, by yourself. Maybe the best item in this price around 20 USD in the World if you have buy something new in less payment but long wait.
