    Earbuds Round-Up

    Did laundry and discovered my missing RY4S’s as I was transferring the load into the dryer. The foams were still on. I let them sit for 3 days and happy to report, they sound exactly as they did before a double cold cycle! I even compared them to an identical set. Shocked.

    Earbuds Round-Up

    You’re making me feel better about cancelling my order. I decided I needed a new audio interface instead and went with a really nice audient id14 mk2. Very happy with it! I know I would most certainly miss the top end if I got the em5. Please keep us posted if anything changes with burn in!

    I love the MK2. Was a great allrounder for me. Amazed that I could hear sounds behind me. Haven't experienced that with any other earbud.

    Thx! Thats really good insight. I might have to check out the chaconne. I like an airy sparkly top end.

    Earbuds Round-Up

    I’ve been wondering about that. I recently started using my SWD2+ without foams and they sound really fantastic that way. I guess I shouldn’t take that chance. Appreciate the advice.

    Thank you! Very useful to hear your impressions. Wondering if using without foams brings back some of those distant highs...

    Earbuds Round-Up

    You inspired me. Just ordered the em5. The price drop and return possibility convinced me. Been really curious about it for a couple of months so now I’ll get to find out for myself. I’m very interested in hearing how it stacks up to the swd2+ and all my blurs.

    Earbuds Round-Up

    I see that general impressions on the Fiio Em5’s are that they sound slightly rolled off. Wondering if anyone has used them without foams and if that helps extend the top end.

    Looks really nice. I’ve never had a toneking before. 600 ohm! Would you say they are bright?

    Interesting you say that. I’ve recently been thinking about this very thing. I got one of his first 300ohm offerings and I must say they have gotten better and better. Less veiled and more detailed with time for sure. I loved his house sound and now I’m floored that an earbud can sound so good.
