 It is in my Earbuds Roundup thread. Also, dual dynamic isn't something new in the earbuds world. Panasonic had made a name for their dual dynamic earbuds back in the 70s~90s when they were still serious in the headphone business. A mint condition HV100 probably cost more than gold of equal weight these days.
 Besides Mojito, no.
