    I also suggest the Yincrow RW-9. I love my two pairs!

    I have an old 'long cord" version of the K's 64 so can't comment on those. The k's 64 are very popular here and I'm tempted to try another pair. Between the RW-9 and the Snow Lotus, the RW-9 is worth the extra few dollars. You won't be disappointed with either.

    Earbuds Round-Up

    The Headroom MS16 arrived Friday. The Good: Fit - Fit is surprisingly great for my ears! They lock into place and don't fall out when walking. This is a huge plus. Controls - for Android (LG V30) work extremely well (volume, stop/pause, etc) for my music apps and audiobook player. The Not So...

    Below you price range, the Qian 39 is tiny, in terms of shell diameter, and for me the best fit of any earbud. The sound is pretty good too! Check out the Yincrow RW-9. One of my favorite earbuds!

    Thanks for providing substansive information in your post. I have Vidos and bought and kept the X6 with no regrets. I don't like that J cable. BTW, I have (now TWO - blue and red) Yincrow RW-9's and will do an AB test vs. X6 with a splitter. I *think* there's a huge difference.

    What other changes did you make? A different cable should only make a subtle difference in the sound signature.

    I justified the MS16's $6 price for audiobook listening. It's handy to have volume control, stop/pause. If the quality of the sound produced is unique or very good for some genres of music, that's icing on the cake!

    Waynes World is spot on. My red RW-9 arrived today. Too busy listening to music to AB.

    There's a good chance that the story is not accurate - https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/electrocuted-by-earphones/ I'm going to chaulk it up to urban legend unless it can be substantiated.

    There's also the S version with transparent shell for an extra $2 available here. I'll have to go back, the difference S vs non-S was mentioned iirc.

    I still listen to my Hi Z 650 and it's my only TOTL model. Sounds great with my LG phones with DAC enabled. I use it mostly for AB-ing to other earbuds . The HP650 probably reproduces the "proper" amount of bass from a sound engineer's perspective, but other far cheaper earbuds are more fun for...

    I was the same way - my purchases ended in (late) 2017, and now back getting some new earbuds. Maybe our old ones are no good compared to the new? Only one way to find out:jecklinsmile:

    I'm with you on those choices Purplesun. The one copy of the SHE3800 that I have (a friend recabled) continues to surprise me in a good way! The E808+ is a bit sibilant but has incredible resolution for the price. But like the others has a flimsy cable and cheapish jack, which do not impact...

    I hate to distract from the never ending earbud-with-mic discussion, excellent article on state of the art music production. Lots of hype and maybe self promotion, but a great read! It may make you think twice before using a sonically v shaped earbud :k701smile: THE MIXING SECRETS BEHIND CARDI...
