When one of the best audio brands in the world, partners with a legendary audio reviewer, you can only expect the best. That’s what the Tripowin x HBB Olina is all about. This IEM is equipped with a dynamic driver with a CNT diaphragm. It has been precisely tuned and comes with a silver-plated OFC cable for performance that’s nothing short of spectacular.
Diaphragms that are the Best
Carbon nanotube (CNT) diaphragms are considered as some of the best in the audio world thanks to the integrative network of carbon tube structures that enhance tensile strength and stiffness in the elastic modulus. IEMs using previous generation CNT diaphragms were observed to be well-tuned and high-performing monitors. The Tripowin x HBB Olina uses the new generation of this diaphragm to improve membrane speed resulting in transient attacks and perceived better audio definition.
Tuned to be the Best
The Olina is tuned using an acoustic cavity instead of standard rubber sound tubing to eliminate unwanted harmonic resonance and ensure life-like, spacious sound. A clean and impactful bass resolves into a natural mid-section while the treble maintains high detail retrieval, creating the perfect balance. The pinna gain is matched perfectly to that of the human ear, making this IEM a combination of precise tuning and the finest dynamic drivers.
Built to be the Best
The Olina’s acoustic chamber is crafted from CNC-machined aviation-grade aluminum. The sonic properties of this material ensure it’s as accurate as an audio reproduction instrument. An upgraded 2-pin silver-plated oxygen-free copper cable offers seamless audio signal transmission.

Tripowin is known for producing some of the most popular audio products for international brands for years. They decided to take their technical know-how and combine it with the legendary audio reviewer, Hawaiian Bad Boy’s years of experience with HiFi audio products to create the perfect IEM for the audiophile community – the Mele. Following up on this, they’ve now introduced Olina. With this IEM, expect supreme audio performance and professional tuning at a budget price.
I've been an avid follower of HBB (Bad Guy Good Audio Reviews) for a while now and thoroughly enjoyed the QKZ x HBB Khan. After a brief dalliance with the Truthear Zero (not RED) to find out whether I liked the Harman In-Ear Target (I did not) - I decided to cleanse the palate with another affordable HBB set. The Olina did not disappoint me. It has this engaging but non-fatiguing tonality that lets you keep it on for as long as you want to.
Thanks for the honest review! We're glad you enjoyed the Olina IEM!
But needs Tanya mod. BGGAR must not have rushed this one out.
Needs modding to get it to sound to its full potential. Buy the Olina se 2 instead if you're interested in this set?

Sony does not disappoint with the NW-A306. I like the customization possibilities and the android interface.
The shell is big bit somehow very comfortable fo extended use. The sound signature is about what I expected soo no complaints there. The only thing is I'm not a big fan of l connectors but that's a minor gripe.
This is my first IEM and my mind is blown by the audio quality of it and also the premium feel and built quality of the IEM which is made by Zr ceramic. It not only looks and feels good but also the clarity, passive noise cancellation, and comfort are good. Definitely a 10/10 and would suggest the people to buy it. The gift packaging it came into was also very thoughtful from the side of 'The audio store' people and was impressed by it.
Great experience with this earphone, thanks the audio store. Thank you for your quick response to a small problem.
Excellent layering delivered with kinetic bass on a wide sound stage. 👌.
This is strictly for metal and rock heads...the force and speed of attack is phenomenal on these...this is coming from a guy who has S12 , EA 500 & Sundara which are well known for speed and resolution themselves... suprisingly the treble is not harsh at all and sibilance is completely absent (major pain point of S12)..never expected such a sound signature from a non planar set but that's the magic of this hobby ..you get sleeper hits like SR 5 from time to time 😀...Soundstage and separation is adequate..not out of head...you will not get time to focus on all that anyway as the cohesive and authoritative sound will take your breath away before that 😜
Thanks Pritam Ji for bringing this to India and listening patiently to your customer's requirement and suggesting suitably.
Note : the photos in the website are of the old packaging...it has improved much now and Sound Rhyme provides a metal and a leather case along with foam tips now..check the pics of the package i received. I swapped out the stock 3.5 cable with a balanced fiio 4.4 one ..but the stock cable seems to be of high quality as well.
A good connector for 2.5mm to 4.4 mm jack . I prefered it due to expensive cable I have purchased for 2.5 mm connection which is useless in 4.4 output now I can use it once again.
The Krila is an excellent IEM. The sound has a mild v-shaped tuning which renders a solid punch to the bass and sparkle to the highs. The bass is tight and goes very deep but is not overwhelming. I find it to have a slight mid bass bleed but not to the extent of drowning the mids. Vocals sound quite lively but is slightly recessed owing to its v-shaped tuning. To my ears, the treble is sparkly with lovely instrument separation. It also gives a good sense of air and space. The soundstage may not be as wide or deep as other more expensive iems but is very much acceptable and even better than some others at this price point. The lower treble has a slight peak which may sound a bit piercing at high volumes, but is otherwise very detailed. The result is a fairly balanced signature with a slight emphasis at the frequency extremes and sounds very lively and enjoyable. Add to this the stellar build quality with beautifully crafted metal shells and I feel we really have a winner here for less than 2k. I am now tempted to collect almost all the other KZs :) The memory foam ear tips included in the package are excellent too. A better quality cable with chin clip and a carrying pouch would have been great.
This was suggested to me for my preference, i was very sceptical to see how it would actually be, the moment i put it on it was very special and a bliss, extremely comfortable, extremely non fatiguing, you can wear it for 8-10 hours straight and forget you are wearing it,
also has bass for bassy songs, clear mids and vocals, amazing treble, i dont think there can be a better IEM as this has no downsides!
Strangely, it works for music play but does not work for call audio. Not satisfied with the product.
7HZ 71 Portable USB DAC is good one for music lovers. With a good pair of iems you can feel the difference.
Sound is good delivery is good earphone new condition thanks audio store
For the cost the cable looks good quality.... had problems with the one who came with the dac. Extremely easily and without a hint of fractures rotting in any direction. The connectors sit tightly.
It came quite fast.
For context, I own the Fiio FH3, Truthear Zero, Simgot EW200 and now this. All the above had slightly offensive upper mids. While I actually like that to an extent, it sometimes got too much that I had to reduce the volume whenever I listened at high volumes. The EM6L while warm at lower volumes, it starts getting brighter at higher volumes, but mind you it's just the right amount of it imo. And it's less offensive than the rest.
While the Fiio FH3 has a much better build and a better punch to it, the EM6L has better technicalities. The Soundstage between the two are similar when connected with a 4.4mm output, the EM6L has better layering and depth perception that it helps if you are gaming.
I primarily game, and am a casual music listener, and in that aspect, I'd rate these above all the other IEMs I mentioned. But the Fiio FH3s come close, and may not be a bad option with its better build and punch. If you're into Hip Hop, the FH3s would be better, but the EM6L is a better all rounder.
Construction is solid, Connectivity is easy, easy to operate, there is no audio delay, it gives output to all the ports so if you have two set of speakers you can run them parallely. The only con of this device is it decodes only upto PCM 16Bit/48kHz over USB.
