Nice, let me know how you like them. Not much of a portable headphone guy myself, but these have always looked interesting

Wanted to pass on this deal I picked up from Fatwallet...

 

Munitio Call of Duty 9mm Billets $13 shipped

 

I had to bite, seems I can't buy enough buds in this price range if they're said to be decent (heck it's the price of a burger and fries). Looking around there is the occasional review that says bass is ridiculously massive and everything else is nonexistant, but hopefully those are just bad units as there are mostly glowing reviews describing great huge bass plus excellent overall sound. TD's retail is incorrect - these are priced at $70 on Munitio site. Build is said to be excellent, with aluminum body, reinforced cable, etc... and decent accessory pack with carrying case & extra tips.

I'm totally hip to the "I had to" feeling smile.gif

 

But please try one first and give us a quick opinion. I know I have my own on the way but I am new at this and would like to hear what more experienced ears think of them. 

 

(IIRC some said 40hrs burn-in is in order)

Sure I'll give my humble opinion. But I'm not much experienced than you are. What other IEMs do you have?

Sorry I just figured by your post count that you've been in this club for awhile smile.gif

 

Hmm lets see...I have

V-Moda Vibe II Duo

Scosche IDR355MD

Brainwavz Beta

Monoprice 8320 - bequeathed to nephew

Xears Communicate C100iP

 

So, I don't spend a lot - I look for big discounts on items that already don't cost much.

 

I think I'm finding out that what I like is generally referred to here as a fun sound (which I guess is fortunate when you can't spend a lot of money). Which maybe explains why I gave away the MPs...I did notice the nice detail (for the price), but bass seemed a tad light and they just didn't excite me. To my ears the Xears are the best I have, they have great bass punch and also good mid detail and decent brightness (well that's my very amateur opinion). But I do love the way they sound.

 

But anyway the reason I don't trust my own opinion that much yet is...every time I put in a pair of my iems and dial up some good music I end up thinking OMG these are the best headphones, this song sounds awesome!! I mean even the Scosche had me thinking that biggrin.gif. Then I got the Xears and WOW NOW THESE REALLY ARE THE BEST.

 

So anyway that's why I like to back up my own opinion with others from people who have a bit more experience.

I used Shure 530s and 535s for about 10 years and was happy. Then I gave to my better half the 535s and decided rather than get another pair I would get something 'different'.

So, on the faithful day, about a million hours of reading ago, I entered into Goggle search bar

"Best Earphones" and then it rained Hell fire and brimstone upon my head.....I found Head-Fi.

 

After hours of reading, I realized how unhappy I was with the 535s blink.gif  LOL

 

Seriously, I have jumped in with both feet and IMHO went right to the top (spending a few short hours in between with Westones 4 and UM3X) and now have FitEar To Go 334s and Unique Melody Miracles. Each day I think one is slightly better than the other, then the next day I switch but this much I know, for me right now, my search and curiosity to try others, has ended.

 

I'll really try to get enthusiastic about trying the Munitio's, I probably will want to open just to see if the tips would work better on the 334s as I am trying to tweak the sound. And while they are open, why not give a listen!

Oh for heaven's sake smile.gif...$1350 iems and 6-driver customs?? You can be forgiven for not leaving a review of $13 hp's...it may be for the best haha. Thanks for all of your input!

Amazing deal...I too went to the site and bought 3 to give out for Xmas present, until the shipping charges appeared ($79 for USPS International to Australia), then I cancelled the purchase...

That Tiger Direct deal is good but I didn't receive free shipping even though it says "Free Shipping". Looks like Tiger is doing what it does: bait and switch to give you free shipping IF you sign up for their version of Prime for $50. Oh well, total was under 20 bucks and I need a set with a mic for my phone anyways.

Are you in the US? I am and I received free shipping. I am sorry that this deal that I posted isn't working out for everyone.

No need to apologize, it is Tiger Direct after all ;)

And I am in the US, in California.
