About this deal

Of course, the instruments sound playful, with good notes that are less sharp and produce lovely details. It has a narrow to average soundstage width but somehow it has a decent height ceiling and an acceptable depth from front to rear. So, I decided to give it a whirl (jumping the queue of other items) and I have to say, the first listen was impressive.

It should be noted that the construction is quite good, as is the detailing, but the capsules are heavy in the hands. Below average sound/speaker stage, I have a great dislike on narrow and congested feel on my listening session. But there's more weight in the mid-bass than in the sub-bass, and it delivers the beats of a “Gangsta's Paradise” with a lot of vigor, while at the same time leaving me missing more vibrancy on a “What it Is” . As for the cable, it's good on both, silver on the C3s, with fatter connectors, made up of 4 strands as well. As we move to the higher midrange, here things are not quite as forward as on other sets, something that I find can make certain vocals come across as rather dull, again referring to tracks like “ Happens to the Heart” or Raelee Nikole in “ Dreamin’”.Males vocals especially on baritones will have its plush and rich characteristics and female vocals like contralto and some lower register mezzo-soprano vocals have its husky, heft and dark tone. On technical performance, Cadenza has a tad better soundstage lateral span, similar imaging aspect, a bit better separation and detail retrieval though it has less solid macro-dynamics compare to Z300. We in the audio community are quite familiar with his preferred type of tuning on which he believes that it suits well with his library of tracks like classic rock, hip hop and some classicals like Vivaldi. However, treble is definitely not the main focus here and I doubt this will affect the listening enjoyment that much.

Meanwhile, it is engineered to be both rigid and flexible at the same time, with a balance between stiffness and pliability that produces sound with incredible accuracy and detail. For some countries, it might take up to 2-3 months, depending on your country, its customs and other factors. Its entire body is made of zinc alloy, with the dragon on the case printed on the faceplates with gold paint. It is nothing extraordinary but it is a good cable that is far better than some of the cables received with IEMs that cost 10 times or more than the Z300.

For people who enjoy some extra bass and like to listen to music all day long while not being distracted by the music at all, the Z300 might be just the ticket. Bass bleed lessens when you spend some time with the iems, and there is almost no bass bleed on most slow tracks.

This collaboration between BLON and HBB is a true testament to our commitment to excellence in audio and design, and we are honored to work with such a talented and passionate partner. In my opinion, the BLON x HBB Z300s have a warm tuning, with a good lift in the sub-bass area, while the mid-highs are sustained and the treble has a good balance between presence, extension and energy level, but without breaking the equilibrium and maintaining a certain level of smoothness. The C3s are constructed of smooth, polished resin, weigh very little and have very high ergonomics, superior to the Z300s, which are slightly less well integrated and heavier. The intricate dragon pattern combines with sharp angles to create a modern and sophisticated look that is sure to catch the eye.The Z300, in my opinion, is more resolved and tonally superior even after being less energetic because of the balance between the two regions. The Z300 is an IEM with a single dynamic driver that employs a 10mm silicone diaphragm and powerful magnets. Four strands of braided high purity copper wire provide exceptional clarity and transparency, ensuring that every note is heard with absolute accuracy.

However, because the Piccolo puts out a lot more impacts and hits, the bass may not feel as full on the Piccolo.The lower ranges of vocals, particularly deep male vocals such as Leonard Cohen in “ Happens to the Heart” have a nice smoothness in the lower mids, with a decent amount of detail.
