The good:

- Nicely packaged; not just things in a baggy.

- There are two pairs for $10 not just one pair. S and L oddly enough.

- They work! Stable and a better fit for good sound. Small works for me as it is firmer.

- Slit the edge of a foamy and still use foam over them if you choose.

 

Tried the Yurbuds and they are okay. These have worked out better for me. Same thing two pairs for $10 like Yurbuds bud these give you two different sizes. Small and large is a bit odd. They really should add a medium size. Anyhow, not gonna change the sound as much as Yurbuds will since they don't cap off the front any so no stage size change and Yurbuds can really add to the thickness of a bud and be uncomfortable. These Earhoox should stand a better chance of working out for people.

 

I put the small on my Audio-technica CHX7 and they lock them in so they don't move and the tighter fit gives me the bass that is lacking with the stock caps or foams. The CHX7 used to let bass escape out the top and now there is a bit more bass than with foams on and also a bit less volume is needed for them now.

 

The two things that are wrong about them would be no medium size as of yet and the large is not as firm as the small and may be harder too fit them right. A medium size and a few more color choices added and they would be close to ideal.

 

My Tingos are out on loan now so I can't try them yet but the TC100 for example should benefit from a firmer fit into the ear. Also as the TC100 are quite big the previously mentioned Yurbud caps over the TC100 is a too big. I'm pretty sure the Earhoox should help with most any of the buds mentioned in this thread if one finds the fit not ideal.

I've added your review to the original post. Thanks for the contribution.

How can that be possible? I thought the PK1 comes only in 150 ohms and the PK2 is the only driver that comes in lower impedence 32  ohms. Aren't you effectively just ordering a PK2 then? 

 

 

EDIT: Also changed the title of the thread to a more appropriate name as discussion expands and grows.

Not so sure goldenSHK. PK1 might just be the housing but not the driver. I don't know. It's a DIY anyways so let's see when I receive my pair. :D

Omg guys, call me crazy, but I'am really changing completely my mind about my previous M760 review..

They are now my best sounding earbuds to far. After a full week of permatent proper burn, they sound incredible and finally even beats my PK1! When I tried back PK1 their soundstage sounds so thin and lack so many details in mediums.. bass are no more "boombox" to me, they are emphasizing and well controlled, much more presence and precise, only highs didn't changed to me or I would say it's slightly better but they have still the right amount to my ears, never been sibilant and are precise also, every instruments are a pleasure to be heard.

 

Incredible M760 earbud that Dasetn provide us!

I will adjust my full review soon, I can't remember now to compare with my old Blox TM7 pair since I sold it at least 1 year ago, but it remembers me a lot of TM7 listening in term of details, I would say it's the same level of a TM7 with even more soundstage, but only by memories.

I forgot in my review to talk about amped things, they don't requires any amp at all, they shines amped or not, bass is still here even if you don't amp them, and they are very easy to drive which is a big plus to me.

 

My earbud king is now M760, definitely.

 

My current ranking: M760 > PK1 > ES10 > TG-38s

 

Still waiting my pair of Baldoor E100 to be send for shipment. Can't wait for it!

Glad you like them! I still use mine daily besides at home when I use full size cans. I think these guys are good. They don't need  an amp at all, but I noticed that I can hear small audible improvement when hooked up to even something like a cmoyBB amp. It gets the last bit of speed and natural timbre out of the buds. But I'd say you can get 95% of their performance plugged straight into a smartphone. I have a Sennheiser MX985 on the way in the post right now, but I am really wondering how these compare to the Hisoundaudio PAA-1 PRO since apparently they are now under $30 on amazon. 

 

I am excited to hear what else you have to say about the M760.

Hmmm, it makes me wonder how to do a proper burn actually. Can you tell me how you burn your M760 to be sound like it's to be?

If my memory correct, I guess you are the third person besides Danneq and BenF who said either M1/M760 (or is it tg-38s) is better (prefereable) than those either PK1 and TM7. 
Thanks.

P.S. I voted for M760, although i have never tried Baldoor and M2C.

Anyone interested in experimenting?

P.S. The product description shows 4 options, kinda clueless about them. "pk2 red", "match pk1 ancient the line", "pk2 black" and "pk1 relationshipwith".

About two weeks ago Dasetn inform me about his finding on PK1 driver, he showed me the picture and the driver is resemble to the picture on that shop. It has purpleish/reddish membrane driver. Who knows, he would probably listed in his store soon. I havent ask him about when will he release his PK1 DiY.

Sure, with pleasure.

Here is how I burn my buds in general.

And especially, here is my exact settings used for M760 burning.

 

I'am using my old NWZ-A816 Sony walkman (plugged in AC) with Track11 of Jean-Marie REYNAUD Magic CD (had to encodate the file from flac to mp3 @ 320kbps since my sony walkman does not read better). After testing some pink noise files, I chose this track which provides to me the best pink noise quality sound ever.

On my sony walkman I set a high volume: 21 (30 is its max) with EQ bass boost to first level of the bar, and I use my FiiO E11 mini amp with the following settings : low power / no gain / bass boost set to 1 / volume at position 6 (8 is max).

Overall tips it that it depends of the earbud you want to burn-in as these settings differs with sensitivity but main goal is to play that file at high volume without endomaging drivers.

I let it like this burning non stop 24/7 during 1 full week or 2, depending on the earbud (having 2 batteries for my E11 so I'am switching them each mornings and nights before sleeping).

 

This how I did see a huge difference from out of the box and today, clearly.

Any question is welcome.

 

Cheers'

Figure I'd link to my FS thread since I have a good earbud deal someone in here might like. http://www.head-fi.org/t/730085/3-for-30-sale

 

 

I have a question. Why have we not seen Yuin OK Diy stuff? I guess after the PK's they have guarded the OK series better as far as housings and drivers. Still buds that convert to in ears is a good idea and some DIY-er would/could make better(angled would be better) screw on tubes and other improvements like cables and such. Did Yuin take a patent out on that? Hard to believe no one else would try that unless Yuin has exclusive rights to the idea. OK prices are not really dropping either like the PK series which is a shame since, though good, they are not a good value in today's market. Over $200 for any bud is just too pricey.

Hi, Thanks for the tip. I personally never bother to have a burn method. I always burn on the go and playing some music I like, so this one is new. I will probably try this. One last question, did you rest your buds after several hours or just burn it the whole week?

For earbuds you can burn them without any rest, but for speakers or heaphones this is different, they need some rest every hours depending of them.

Definitely the M760. They have the mids a bit forward and really shine in vocal-centric music. Their main weakness is pop music, EDM, and hip hop - basically very bass heavy music that needs powerful low hits. The MC5, PK1, TM7, and/or MX985 is ideal for those. Anything with the highs or mids not specifically forward is what you want if you listen to pop music.

+1 for the M760 (from what I have heard so far)

Got my replaced Baldoor E100 today. And I'm glad it sounds fantastic, no more channel imbalance.

This time it came in all new packaging. The box in the right is the new one.

It doesnt say Baldoor anywhere.

 

Above picture is the old triangular box

 

In the above picture there are 2 earbells. Bottom one is the new one. Older one had slightly yellowish cable holder and also had minor scratches.(Scratches are not visible in this photo)

 

 

 

The new packaging has English warranty card whereas older one was only in Chinese.

 

 

 

 

Yeah...and the change is good.

 

 

Out of the box they really sound nice. Bit mid centric, they have thick vocals, very good highs and nice lows. Overall a balanced sound, nothing to complain about.

Will be burning them in now. Hopefully they will shine more after few hours.

Happy listening :etysmile:.

post #90 of 193

Mrice E100 ? aren't we supposed to buy Baldoor instead ?

 

On the plug is there any Baldoor mark on your new pair ? like this:

 

 

 

And does they sound the exact same (at low volume to test, to avoid your crackling problem maybe) ?
