Dasetn/Tingo/Baldoor earbuds Reviews and Impressions - Page 10  

post #136 of 1160

I guess I'm going to have to keep posting until I can post pictures. . . .
 

Am I allowed to post links to places I got the parts from and/or mention local chain stores that I got some stuff from?

 

doh. . .will try again later.

 

Test to upload picture commencing. . . .

To my ears, this mod + Dasetn M760 sounds better than Rockit R-50 using Knowles TWFK BA driver (and better than anything on my list). YMMV. . .

Here is one place to get the tips covers/from. You can probably find them somewhere else or use something else. They are marketed to cell phone users and not earbud users. They will slip off easily (too easily) from some buds - so I use a doughnut earphone foam to keep them attached and flexible. Something called "Breppies" can also be used - but earfoam foams are readily available cheaply. I think the doghnuts that come with MX580 or MX581 can be used - but those are not available except from Sennheiser and their cost is far too much for me to invest in a hacking project:

EDIT: When I tried to post this originally, I was rejected and the message was that I couldn't post links. It just appeared 4 hours later intact!

Dear mtliu once you send them to my email tonight I can put them on the thread for you :wink_face:

will do! pretty soon, hopefully I can do it on my own. this mod works if you have earbuds that sound better if you push and twist them in your ear and have to hold them onto your ears for a better sound. It makes the buds sound better than that and you don't have to walk around with your hands pushing the buds against your ears. However, it will make crappy buds less stinky, but they will still stink. 

 

I can't believe that I think that this mod on Dasetn M760 sounds better, cleaner, purer than an $120 IEM using TWFK BA units! I can't believe that the $26 Dasetn M760 sounds better than >$50 (closer to $90) Creative Aurvana Air.

 

With all the hype about the Tingo T-38s, I'm anticipating this to sound awesome with this mod - am still waiting for them to arrive. My first order from Dasetn (M760 M1 M3) took 10 days to arrive to the USA (counting weekend days).

 

Basically what results is a standard earbud foam with a nozzle coming out of it. This earbud foam can be taken off easily and placed on another set of buds. It does no irreversible permanant physical or electronic modifications to the actual earbuds.

I was in my local Sam's Club a year or more ago and saw that they make custom molds for earbuds. Expensive at $100 or more for the set. They are molded for the iBuds but I know that my PK3 fit the mold when I tested it.

 

I apologize, some time back I was going to write up a comparo between the original PK3, a DIY PK3 (not form Dasetn) and the M760. Unfortunately my father fell very ill and recently passed away so I never finished it.

 

I will say though that when I have been listening, I ALWAYS choose the M760 at this point. Thanks to BenF's discovery I have ordered the Tingo and the M1 from Dasetn this morning. I should have ordered a spare M760 just in case. I had posted that at first it sounded very bloated and the bass was just overpowering but after a week of burn in under the couch (to muffle the sound) it woke up and is just amazing. I hope that the new version with the red cable still holds up, the one I received has the black cable.

The M760, M1, and M3 all sounded great out of the box to me. After listening to any of these Dasetn Buds, it makes Skullcandy Ink'd IEMs sound like AM radio (unfair comparison performance wise - but Ink'd and Dasetn buds cost about the same). It makes Skullcandy Merge buds sound shrill and grainy. 

 

My M760 has the orange cable with the 90 degree plug. It sounds awesome (with my mod). I must have gotten a "good pair". The M760 makes crash, ride, and hi-hat cymbals sound like. . .well cymbals! This shouldn't be a surprise, but more often than not, I hear IEMs and buds making cymbal noises that may or may not sound good - but do not sound like these cymbals do when played live. 

 

testing upload. . .

Getting close though :o

 

Still waiting on my yuin pk3 and tingo to arrive, hopefully soon.

@mtliu - You can post images and links now.

post #145 of 1160

I can post pictures!!!! Here's a blurry photo of what the mod looks like in the ear. Next post I will try to do multiple photos - preview smaller in size. If you guys thinks this belongs in its own thread, please let me know. I'm "the new guy" so I'm not sure about behavior and I feel like I'm hijacking the OP.

This is kinda like sighting the Loch Ness Earbud Mod. Even when we finally get a picture of the creature, it is blury... :P

Here are the pictures. From the rear, they look like regular ear foams. I am using the earfoams to affix the contraption to the buds. I do not use the silicon lip but leave it to act as a spring to insure some space so the sound from all the earbud holes can be focused into the soundshole. I cut off the mushroom tip and put my own homemade foams made from memoory foam earplugs. You can leave the mushroom intact or use your choice of tips - Comply or whatever. I use my homemade bootleg ones because they sound and feel best to me. Note that these do not go into your ears as deeply as IEMs.

 

view from the rear.

 

 

front and side view

 

 

the foams can easily removed to use on other buds

 

 

these are the components used: Doughnutted standard earbud foam (smallest setting on the hole punch), bootleg eartip made from earplugs, small portion of fishtank PVC piping cut with a 45 degree angle at one end, silicon rubber tip with mushroom removed - you can leave the mushroom on if you want. The fishtank hose is necesary or the foam tip will collapse the canal - I tried straws too but they weren't strong enough.

 

 

a doughnutted foam with the mushroom head still intact that I cut off.

 

 

the tools I use

 

 

The finished product without the bootleg foam.

 

Should this go in another thread with instructions?

post #148 of 1160

Stick to this thread, I am sure nobody really minds. It looks pretty interesting if I do say so myself and may look into getting some materials to give it a try myself.

So, what's the deal with this thing :confused:...

These are huge, they say it openly in the listing - people wit small ears shouldn't even try.

Looks like they are using body similar to AP8, which I found unusable.

It's a remake of the TG-JL1 model, which used the Yuin PK1 body.

All the reviews in the listing are for TG-JL1 - TIngo used the same listing for the new model.
