If you’ve been watching audio Facebook groups or perhaps the discovery thread on Head-fi, you’ll likely have heard of NICEHCK. They are most known for their very value-orientated hybrid earphones with the NX7 being most widely covered. That model drew much interest for its low-cost adoption of generally advanced acoustic design. However, reviews were critical of implementation, citing that it didn’t match the maturity of leading competitors. The company has been working to append this and now present the NX7 MK3.
This is a whopping 7-driver hybrid IEM starting at a slightly elevated $119 USD asking price for single-ended cable or $135 for balanced (2.5mm, 3.5mm and 4.4mm available). For the money, buyers receive a dual CNT DD woofer setup, 4x BA drivers and 1 piezo-electric super tweeter per side – astronomical for the asking price. The earphones also sport replaceable faceplates and 3 screw-in tuning filters to tweak the signature to the listener’s preference. If NICEHCK is able to weave a coherent signature with these drivers, this is shaping up to be a very competitive earphone at a reasonable asking price.
