Not sure I mentioned these already, but these "Evoke" in ears are great as well. Not sure which company makes them, but they are similar to the KZ-A1 in bass quantity and signature. $17

I used google translate + my very limited Chinese to understand the sites.  I'm actually in China so the S&H is less involved.

All these sellers are HK based though they list in AU$,just like US$,UK pounds/Euros........and since we are using ebay/paypal combination, it's more safe. very rare complaints nowadays....for that matter.small world.

 

We have ebay buyer protection policy and paypal's protection as well.If you open a dispute thru paypal, all the inbound money received is locked on the seller's account until there's a mutual resolution is agreed between the parties. So the seller has to refund fully(upon item received from buyer) or send a genuine replacement.

The reason for my suspicion is that the price is too low. Not a good sign but what the hell, I,m biting the bullet,

Yeah half the price.....but you sure,you are ordering the non-Beryllium Diaphragm one,Right?just...............

Also on a side note, the 2 buttons are not vol+/vol-, it's next/pre track selection.

That,s what I am confused about. Is this Beryllium or not?

Surely 100% fake! If I understand things correctly Xiaomi just sell mainly though their own homepage. And there they charge $16 for Piston. No seller would sell cheaper. Expect to pay $20+

Hi folks,

 

Do you have any ideas for cheap and cheerful earbuds? I've been thrawling through the thread, but (as one would expect) IEMs dominate recommendations. Looking at the brands websites hasn't really been particularly helpful either - I see them, but I wonder how good they'll be...

Earbuds simply have difficulty keeping up with IEMs in terms of delivering high-quality, satisfying sound, and the ones that are good, usually look hideous, such as the Yuin, Blox, etc.

 

There's an upcoming pair of earbuds from Astrotec, dubbed the 'Lyra', sharing the same shell as the AX60, that seems like it might be good, however:

I expected that to be the case, but I don't really get on with IEMs all that well - I find earbuds to be far more comfortable. In any case, I'm not really fussed about looks and I've been pretty happy with some cheap AKG K314p (which appear to be rated far lower than the Yuin), so I suppose I'm not particularly demanding.

 

Those Lyra look good, though. Thanks for the tip - I'll chase it up.

Usually I hesitate (a lot) to recommend hisound, but the PAA-1 PRO is not bad at all, and will probably come off a bit sturdier than the Yuins.

Use this link for the official updated Xiaomi. Aside from ordering from Xiaomi themselves, very few sellers seem to be legit.

You are taking a risk of getting the older version or a fake if you don't. I ended up with a fake the first time.
