    Absolute best budget earbuds?

    No, these are ordinary $4 red RY4S with reddish cable. I use them for YouTube at my office and for podcasts while commuting and they are fine for that. In terms of SQ, they are clearly behind EMX500s and Snow Lotus 1.0+

    Absolute best budget earbuds?

    I got a delivery in my mailbox today and it's the kinky RY4S. They sound very very good right from the start both from the phone and laptop. They are not that different from MX500s and Snow Lotus 1.0+. They have a clean, sharp sound, good separation and solid bass. I also love the L plug...

    Earbuds Round-Up

    - Daddy, why do you need so many earbuds? - Ummm...errrr.. Well, mom is clumsy and when she breaks her earbuds, I'll give her one of these. - But she hasn't broken her buds yet. - Go do your homework. ------------------------------------------------- In other news, of course I couldn't...

    Absolute best budget earbuds?

    I found this in my mailbox today :) and it was well worth the wait. I only had time to run through dozen or so songs (from Kreator, Faithless, Portishead, Metallica, Bad Religion, Chi-A.D. , Nirvana..) and they sound sooo sweet and musical, especialy in the vocal and synth range. Bass is big...

    Earbuds Round-Up

    This nice photo reminded me that I had one of those SE earbuds. They came with my SE Elm phone and just stayed in the box unused for.. seven or eight years (I still use the little phone as a second device. It never ever failed me!). I found the box with the earbuds relatively easy at the bottom...

    Earbuds Round-Up

    And I have just found out that our favorite Ali store has put my little country on DHL only regime. No free shipping option anymore. As of today, Vido would cost me mere $89.23.. It looked business as usual during the latest sale. I have no idea what happened. :triportsad: I hope it's temporary

    Absolute best budget earbuds?

    My instinct tells me that Faaeal Snow Lotus 1.0 are unjustifiably overlooked. Very few people seem to have them here. So I ordered a pair last night - the shiny silver 1.0 + version with silver plated wire for $9. That’s silver on silver and hopefully they will sound like gold. ( : Also...

    Earbuds Round-Up

    I’ve just applied the thin tape mod to MX760 new graphene and it actually improved the sound. The sound image is more coherent, there’s more depth and details, bass response is firmer. I suppose it’s the result of a better seal. I’m shooting all those wicked sheriffs with Bob Marley as I type...

    Earbuds Round-Up

    My patience was gone after 3-4 minutes. Besides, one of the white donuts which I picked doesn't have that middle section cut from the inside, it's just a round piece of foam with a hole, a ring. I can put it on my finger no problems. :ksc75smile: Have to check others.. The quick solution was to...

    Earbuds Round-Up

    My 11.11 transparent blue New Graphene finally arrived yesterday, packed in a small pouch and with additional foamies in different colors, including donuts (which I have no idea how to put on the buds). The build quality and packaging are very good for the price. :ok_hand: I can only compare...

    Earbuds Round-Up

    It is close to midnight over here and I'm blasting Motorhead's take on Cat Scratch Fever through my Vido while trying to make a decision on my 1111 move. I like Vidos but only after extensive sound tweaking in order to tame that ridiculous amount of not so tight bass and clear up things in the...

    Earbuds Round-Up

    What's the difference between Seahf AWK-F32S and AWK-F32T. The T version has transparent shells and it is described as "2017 New", but does it actually sound better? Also, why are the non-mic white F-32S more expensive than black one with mic? Shouldn't it be the other way round? I am a Vido...

    Absolute best budget earbuds?

    I am a slave to this game and I know I will end up with Monk+ sooner or later. :ksc75smile: I have always used my earbuds with foams and I always have several pairs stockpiled. MX470 have small housings and they can be used comfortably with double foams, which also sweetens their sound...

    Absolute best budget earbuds?

    I've just ordered the Vido for 3,41 EUR and that's with shipping. I simply couldn't resist this ridiculous price after I went through this topic in the last couple of days. At first I thought I should start with the VE Monk + but there are too many comments about their focus on the mids and lack...
