I just ordered a pair. Only 57 left now, I knew I would regret it if I let them go out of stock. There were over 200 available a few days ago.

As per those Philips. Do those actually emit a virtual surround on those? If so Ultrasone gotta take note.

About the Philips, i did manage to find 1 side of my old broken pairs, hook it up to my phone(not plugged in but did the ugliest most complex splice known to man), i only had the right side so i cant give proper impressions, but they did seem to have a very quick response, bass was punchy but lacking and they did seem to have a large soundstage from the 1 side i was using. I did open them up, and they did have a massive driver, but it was facing backwards away from the ear, there was some acoustic material on the side of the enclosure and the side it was facing towards had a metal mesh. Very interesting design that looks like some thought was put into it, not just throwing the cheapest driver into the cheapest to manufacture enclosure. The tips are very strange also and don't give a proper seal, leading to the lack of bass.
Makes me interested in modding them.

OK 8 sets have been ordered for European and UK members who are interested, thanks to John in Cali.

 

All those interested PM me for all the details and those who have already expressed an interest please check your PMs

These are going quicker than I thought.. Nice avatar..Gotta love them HTF600s..Much like the Panas these monoprices are definitely worth the discovery.. Look out for some early impressions today guys.. Even if they run out it will only be a matter of time before they restock.. Seeing how popular they have gotten if I was them I would order a big shipment now. I will contact them and tell them what is happening. I will suggest they start getting a bigger order.. I have a feeling once everyone gets their 8320s the demand is gonna be crazy..

Thanks for trying that out..I read about them on amazon from owners and it seems there is somewhat of a surround effect because of the design.. S-logic for earphones perhaps. Would be cool if they made a bass Iem like that.. Surround bass.. Also thanks for helping the guys form over seas to get their 8320.. To the Euro group. I hope these will have been worth it. If anything you guys will get a very unique and rare earphone. It will make a great conversation piece if anything.. But beyond that.. Everyone enjoy your new iems. I expect full impressions from every one of you guys.

Picked up today, good enough to listen while burning. More later
post #201 of 4157

H guys newbie here. First off Dsnuds thank you so much for finding such a gem and posting it here. My Mee M6 broke and I was looking for a replacement. This is the first time I have brought an IEM just based on 1 persons opinon and I have to say you were spot on.

 

I received my piece around 15 min ago so I have not spent much time with it..I have to say the shipping was excellent. I had  placed the order on Saturday and selected overnight shipping and there it is right in front of me. 

 

All right..coming to the point all of you are waiting for.. my impressions so far.

 

Right off the bat they sound really good.. very fun and energetic. Based on the 15 min I spent listening to them, I would say these are really good . personally they sound much better than my M6.

 

I will start burning them in and get back with my impressions but so far I am really impressed.

 

One thing that is a bit disappointing is that the build quality is nothing much to write about. It looks quite fragile and after being pampered by my M6 these look like they won't stand much abuse. But for the price..you can't beat it.

 

That's about it for now, will post after some more usage..

I mentioned this before but I will say it again for the guys that are just getting these. If you hear some crackle or any type of rough sound while you are sampling your 8320s on open box that is the driver opening up so don't be too alarmed.. 24 hours..Have fun discovering the best cheapo phones you all have ever heard. !

@ eartips

Yeah, I'm looking forward to trying that mod I found, with the foam inside the silicon earbit. Has anyone already done that to say how well it works?

 

@ tangling wires

I have two solutions for that, courtesy of Lifehacker;

I loved my M6, so to hear that something is better for less than half of the M6 price is awesome news

Mine was just delivered to my front door! Unfortunately, I will be stuck at school until 4.

 

I think I will not be attending the rest of my classes for the day... very_evil_smiley.gif

Hey I can't add to the delinquency of our students! Gonna have to call your parents..

 

Haha. Try these with your Fiio E11. Oh man. Trance is just too great sounding on these.

Started reading Head-fi a few days ago when I lost my Brainwavz Pro Alphas, coincidentally when Dsnuts started promoting these. I thought I'd give them a try, so I ordered 3 pairs. For $7, they're definitely awesome headphones. MUCH better than any cheapo earphones I've ever heard. After about 10 hours with them, I was most impressed by the tone and punchy bass, which is pretty much unheard of in this price range. My main gripes were that the build quality doesn't seem too good, and it's really difficult to get a good fit. When I did get a good fit, they still felt really uncomfortable and awkward in my ears. The amount of clarity at higher volumes was a bit lacking, which is unfortunate for me because I really enjoy hearing more details in music. It remains to be known how much better they will sound once properly burned in, but as backup IEMs and ones I'll probably use at the gym, ~$25 well spent (on 3 pairs).

 

Great find Dsnuts!

 

Edit: I don't really listen to trance, but they did seem to work very well for it.

Hey thanks and that is what I am all about, good finds that no one knows anything about. I feel this is kinda my specialty.. I have to agree with you on the build and comfort level. They seem kinda flimsy because of the thin chord but believe it or not I have been kinda rough on mine and they have held up perfectly. I hate how they tangle easily. Finding a good fit is kind of a battle on these..So I definitely recommend different tips..If you want cleaner higher volumes you should try a small amp with these. I use my Fiio E11 and it brings these up a level in sound and clarity and gives the bass a bit more juice. Try eQing them as well.

Just grabbed these out of my mailbox and plugged them into my laptop using my usual burn-in/new headphone eval playlist.  So far not great... bass isn't as present as I would have thought, and the midrange (female vocals) are way forward.  Precise soundstage, but not wide.

 

Very uncomfortable.  I'll start shopping for tips soon.

 

I got these for unamped use out of my iPhone.  I'll give them a burn and use them for a few days and report back.

I can see earsize being an issue with these. The driver is big. I will take blame for not revealing all the bad stuff on these up front. My bad. With that I ask you to throw on your new monoprice and listen to these with it. What you think. ?
