I would also like to introduce this headphone called SNIKE DJ-777 Headset with Microphone (Black)



It is actually a Philips Citiscape clone ...me think n not sure which model. But boy ...this beast actually sound pretty good ...solid thumping bass, mid a bit recessed and pretty decant high ...V sound ....this will appeal to basshead though but the comfort level is excellent .

From what I can gather most of the Radio Shack Auvio line is made in China and Taiwan. I've tried several of their in-ears with varying levels of success but all of them are pretty solid. The 33-266 model in particular sounds really good with a Sennheiser-ish signature. I bought them at $30 and would've paid $50 at the time, but you can get them on ebay for like $10 now.

Gotta find out who the OEM is.

When you say clone does that mean "fake " or is it the same components ?

When I say clone, to me it means it sounds exactly the same, regardless of components. 1:1. It doesn't have to look the same.

 

A copy would be something that looks the same as another headphone, but usually sounds different. AKA a terrible Beats knock off.

Still slightly confused does that mean if you open up a Phillips citiscape it would be the same inside as the one above.

Got in another unknown headphone today that I've been enjoying. Senmai SM-HP8. $40 via ePacket.

They remind me of a Superlux in value. These are bass enhanced, warm monitors. Big sound, good mids, no mud, highs take a backseat to the rest of the sound.

 

EDIT: The highs come out more when amped.

I got a Quinet in-ear today http://dx.com/p/q-293a-noise-isolation-in-ear-stereo-earphone-black-silver-3-5mm-jack-140cm-cable-123027 that seems like an exact copy of the famed (in its time) Sony MDR-EX51. From what I can recall of the Sony they sound pretty close, although I lost that particular pair a few years ago.

The brand is actually called SHIKE and its website is: www.china-headphone.com

 

Though this model is not listed there.

Added.

 

JBM MJ900 sounding good so far. Big bass, works well with $3 ebay foam tips. A little harsh at times.
