PROS
Hits harder than my nemesis clone (placebo?) Tiny mod - 3mm shorter than nemmy in 18350 mode Smooth threads Switch works great (once adjusted)
CONS
Needs a flat top 18350 Need atty with good +ve pin adjustment Switch needs minor adjustment to reduce wobble Battery rattle adjustment screw (top) needs screwdriver
I absolutely love this mod. I already own a nemesis clone which up to now was my favorite. I bought this to keep at work and wasn't expecting much for $14 but wow - I am impressed. My first impressions were poor though- my atty (RSST) did not sit flush, my battery (efest flat top 35mm length) was rattly, and the switch was crunchy and a little wobbly and I thought - what did I expect for $14!. But then I realized that the 510 pin was adjustable (using screwdriver)and I was also able to adjust my RSST positive pin to sit flush. The crunchy switch was an easy fix - just took apart/reassembled and once screwed tight, it was smooth. You need to press it in the middle to fire, but it's such a light action this is not an issue for me and it never misfires when standing up. I much prefer the lock ring on this to the nemesis clone, I think the concealed threads means it attracts less dust/dirt so stays smooth. Something I would recommend to do on this to reduce the throw (also works on nemmy clone)is cut out a small doughnut-shaped piece of cardboard (about 0.5mm thick eg. from cornflake box) and use as a washer under the silver throw adjustment screw. I found that this achieves 2 things - reduces the throw a little and stops the pin from unscrewing once it's tightened. Too thick a piece and it will auto-fire so be careful if you do this, but for me it worked great. One last thing - I do love my nemmy clone but this one for me looks slightly cooler+less girly although looks are subjective. The tubes are exactly the same brushed finish on both mods, but the mirror effect lock ring on the nemesis makes it look a bit like a giant lipstick tube and also a bit like chromed brass (which I don't like):- for me the brass switch on this one looks miles better.

Easy to build Great vape/flavour Post & 510 screws are solid No leaks
CONS
Imperfect paint job. Top cap/chimmney threads a little scratchy
Never tried the original as it's a little expensive for me. This clone functions well as is easy to set up and produces a flavourful single coil vape which is fantastic. As it's single coil you would need fairly exotic premade coils to get good performance I would guess. Gets a little hot when chain vaping (maybe cheaper metal than the original?) but not unbearable when used with the included black delrin drip tip (the red drip tip also supplied is awful!). For me the post screws were perfect, but as it's a clone- the chimmney & top cap threading's biy janky and some areas on the airflow ring had paint missing - this doesn't affect function and none has come off since (I've used for a Month) but still a little annoying, however at ths cheap price no complaints.

PROS
Perfect hand size & lightweight Great function Efficient chip
CONS
Battery meter not the most accurate LED is quite bright (not great for stealth)
Super light without feeling cheap. Spring loaded 510 & large clicky fire button ++. Easy menu to operate, lots of functions but a nice small size; as it's so bright it's very clear also. The ABS material is really nice - feels grippy, soft to the touch but seems pretty resistant to scratches etc.

Build quality is really good, 10/10 Solid jack plug Very clear & loud with reasonable bass Lightweight alloy, comfortable in ear "Premium" packaging (=ideal gift!)
CONS
TH-EC30 (sku #1460507) have more bass + sl. louder
I previously bought TH-EC30 (sku #1460507) from here and was very impressed with the build and sound/bass quality. They lasted me about 6 Months before the jack plug failed but they took some absolute abuse befor giving out (eg dropping device multiple times whilst plugged in etc) so i was nevertheless impressed. So this time around I bought these EC32s, they're similarly of very high build quality; they're made of a slightly different alloy to the EC30s which is noticeably lighter so consequently are slightly more comfortable over long time periods which might be a factor, but the bass & overall loudness whilst still very impressive (especially at this price) is slightly less pronounced in them. The overall build & sound quality is very good, and they put other "premium" headphone brands to shame; so I'd still recommend these highly. Personally I marginally prefer the EC30s over these: however if you prefer lighter/less bassy earphones these would be the ones to choose.

Bass is excellent but also is not artificial-sounding Build quality seems very good Sound quality is excellent (esp for price) Cable quality seems very good Nice design / fit
CONS
none so far (2 weeks)
I go through a lots of cheap headphones throughout the year which I use on my commute to work often in the rain; and usually the quality is acceptable for radio/audiobooks but for music the cheapo ones I usually find are unsatisfactory because often the claimed "bass" is at best artificial-sounding and for many it's non-existent. Often with cheap earphones the build quality's a let down too, -the most recent pair i had (ES-Q9s) broke at the jack plug after just 2 weeks. These are really something different though. Firstly the bass + sound quality is very very good. I'm no audiophile but at home i use large AKG large on-ear headphones and the sound quality on these is at least equivalent but maybe even better than those. The bass is really strong but not the artificial type and for me that's not something you usually can get at this price range. Fit is really good for me but that's a subjective opinion. The build quality appears to be of very high quality but I've only had then 2 weeks so hard to make a proper judgement on that. Cannot fault them so far, that's why I'm writing this review, based on 2 weeks use I would really recommend buying a pair
