post #286 of 35472

Nice to see the Moxpads get some traction.  They really are nice headphones.  I'm just a little annoyed that I didn't get a clear version when I bought them even though that's what I requested.

Sounds a bit like the ME Electric S9. I had to work on the seal also. Then they get bassy.

Are the X3 water resistant of any kind btw?

Right, might as well leave my stuff here as well.

They're in my ears and all I can say right now is that I sort of understand the M200 comparisons. The bass is similarly tactile. I'll go over to try and compare the two tomorrow if possible. From memory though the treble pops out more and there's less of an upper-bass-to-lower-mids haze that I got with the KEFs that I mentioned somewhere before in the thread. Not to say that they're more clear overall - again I'd have to A/B them. Though I'd really take the ergonomics of the Moxpad over the M200s any day. 

 

Another comparison to be made is with the Steelseries Flux - balance seems to be the new black what with all of these new sets. Although the Moxpads decay a tad bit faster in the midbass.

 

I can also confirm that these sound better with deeper insertion, as previously mentioned by bhazard. 

 

I was worried that the connector was loose, as they fell off right when I took them out - turns out that they just didn't fit them on very tight.

 

The whole deal, in terms of ergonomics, build, ruggedness (these are just as nice as I expected on that front), makes me think that we finally have a successor to the MEElectronic M6, on the physical front. I can't remember how those sounded.

Uh.... they've got a good sized port on the front, so no.  Not a good idea.  The cable connection also doesn't have much protection.

Figured as much. 

They are selling them as sports phones on a Taobao site though.

Was curious.

 

My KZ-A1 and ES800m have come in but I can't try them until Tuesday.

Might check the X3 out.

I mean, they could be workout headphones in the same vein the MeElec M6s are workout headphones - very secure fitting.  I'm guessing you could cover the cable connection with some electrical tape or silicon fusing tape and they'd be fine.

Nice. Good to see more impressions, and it helps knowing my ears aren't totally shot.. yet.

 

Got that Blue R35 KZ in today. Another $6 in ear that kills for the price. It basically seems to emulate the old CX-300B II in sound and shape... deep diving bass, neutral mids, slight Sennheiser treble peak, sensitive, slightly more sibilant than desired... $60 type sound, for $6.  Not bad at all, but missing the clarity of higher end sets.

 

I don't remember the sound of the 300, so I'm taking a guess on it. Funny thing is, these sound better and cost less than the CX-300 fakes that used to flood ebay.

Sorry I meant MEE S6.

I was just curious if the X3 were sweat proof as they reminded me of the S6.

 

But I don't think the X3 would make it even if I taped them up.

I sweat like crazy when jogging and the S6 (which is "5" star moisture resistant) are starting to deteriorate.

Give MEE credit though as the S6 has lasted longer than a lot of other earphones.

14-28 days with normal China Post shipping.

Damm this head-fi.org ....just realized that me 1st priority should have been getting a decent smartphone rather than more earphones ...If I might add ....too many just for a pair ot ears each day for 24 hours. Been getting a lot of flaks for carrying a 4 years old phone from my nieces for having "stupid" phone instead of a smartphone.

New year resolution ..stop buying earphone and get a decent smartphone.

Once again - does anyone know where I can find the Moxpad with Epacket delivery?

EDIT: Or rather, is that even available to Europe?

This thread is a godsend.  I've been in Shenzhen for a year now and now have a mission to track down some of these products in local shops.  Just picked up a set of VSonic VSD1 this week.

There are VERY good smartphones for cheap now. The Moto G is exceptional for $199. The Samsung Galaxy Light has LTE for $150. Nokia 520/521 $50-80. Nexus 5 $350, Moto X $350 on Monday. There are plenty of chinese phone makers with good phones under $300 as well, but they don't have the bands for US cellular compatibility a lot of times.

None that I know of. Aliexpress would be the best bet. Choose different shipping option on the item screen and see if ePacket is available from some sellers if not by default.

If you find anything else that catches your eye that we don't know of, let us know! Nothing beats info straight from the source of it all.

I checked Aliexpress, but no seller has it. Too bad, but I might give it a shot with air mail. Any difference between China Post and Hong Kong Post?

Hong Kong Post is the way to go.  In fact, lots of Shenzhen and Guangzhou-based Taobao venders ship their items across the border to Hong Kong to use Hong Kong Post for international shipments.
