    Earbuds Round-Up

    Congrats on your new shiny! :) You will have to share more impressions as you get some "ear time" on them?! Oh WOW! That is crazy... haha

    Earbuds Round-Up

    Interesting that you find that. I am normally a fan of "thinner is better". As long as the cable impedance is fairly low (though some sets do better with higher impedance cables). I have only one or two 16 core cable, and quite a few 8 core cables, but I like the 4 core cables for earbuds. Just...

    Earbuds Round-Up

    That is very interesting. I did know about the DIY workroom though. At one point he and I was going to build a set with the wooden shells and 600ohm driver together, until his work life made him "busier than a one-legged man in an arse kicking contest". :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: For...

    Earbuds Round-Up

    That is great to know... I have been curious to know how hard it was to open these for some time. Thanks for doing it. :) I have found, that while I like all shells for one reason or another (although the MX500 just don't fit me very well), that wooden shells are my favorite overall. The...

    Earbuds Round-Up

    Very nice bro! Congrats on your new (DIY) shiny! :) @jeejack I didn't realize I was referring to the Blue Moon... ;) I was thinking of the Draco or some other wooden shelled set. But that is great to know. No wonder it is liked very much by those that have received a set?! :sunglasses: :thumbsup:

    Fran has with one of his creations.... :) From my understanding, it is very similar but with more clarity. Beyond that, I don't know too much about it.

    Congrats on your new shiny! It would be great to hear your impressions on these. :) These are IEMs. This is a thread for flathead earbuds. But, thanks for sharing anyhow. :)

    Earbuds Round-Up

    Yeah, I have seen what is seemingly very small amounts of DC mV destroy speakers... It is funny now, but definitely was not at the time, and of course I had NO idea what the heck happened at the time. :) Just WOW! Did you end up getting your product, or at least your money back?

    Then, congrats on your old shiny (that stayed in your pocket)! haha Wait! A real "from the earth" rock? OMG I hate to laugh, but that is hilarious (though I am sure you weren't amused at the time).

    Earbuds Round-Up

    Yeah, for the most part, a lot of the earbuds out there aren't as versatile, but are very good at what they are good at. This is one of the things I like about the Yinmans. They sound good to my ears for just about anything. Though there some specialists that sound better at its specialty than...

    Earbuds Round-Up

    Oh, and not sure it would make a difference or not, but don't you want to measure conductive impedance, rather than inductive impedance???? Cool, I'll have a look at it. Thanks for sharing the link. You could very well be right, in which case I am with you... I don't want to have to rebuy all...

    Earbuds Round-Up

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts. Are you using the M5 or the M5 Pro? Also, which driver are you talking about? For me, these aren't as much "ice pick" like the M4 were. Instead (at least what I think I am hearing), they moved that +20dB boost to 1.5 which is no longer as shouty per se', but now...

    Earbuds Round-Up

    Thank you. :) Yes, I am listening to them over ear as well. You are right, insomuch as they seem almost off when worn down... I don't know if it is the 150 LCP or what, but with the SO 100 Bio driver, it is much better, and also less agressive than the M4 as well. I can certainly live with the...

    Earbuds Round-Up

    Fran and I also came to the same conclusion with the M4 when I first got it. Good find... Yes, you are right, I think the stock driver is the same as it was in the M2s Pro, which is not a bad driver at all. So, you just tuned the stock 40 TI driver, and put it back together? How hard was it to...

    Earbuds Round-Up

    Well, there is good news, and bad news... I received my M5 Pro Golden today, and as usual, they are TOTL..... for aesthetics and quality. That is where the good news ends though. Keeping in mind that I did not ever hear the ST20 or Pro, these are the worst yet (for upper mids boost). The good...

    iBasso DX160 - The listening experience only gets better and better. ******NEW FW 1.09 - link 1st page.******

    This is correct information but, you can find apps on Google play store that Wilkes force this behavior. You used to have your device rooted, but maybe you no longer need to. The good news is that if you have the Lurker addon installed, you already have root.

    Earbuds Round-Up

    This was a very interesting read. Thanks very much for sharing it here. :) This looks like one of those devices that don't simply go for "more power" to entice the masses to spend their hard-earned money, but instead they also focus on the "other numbers" I often refer to as being as important...

    Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 and Wireless!

    While I can see where you are going with this, and can appreciate it, I would have to disagree about being obsolete. Good sound is good sound, regardless of how old the tech is. After all, the HD600, HD650, and others have been around for much longer, and are still available today. As for the...

    iBasso DX300 Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 Octa-core 6GB RAM ******NEW Firmware 2.00 Android 11******

    I just can't bring myself to get something new in the kilobuck range... I am still very much in love with my DX300 (and the DX160 as well; we can't leave that one in the cold) and the IT-07. I just can't find better (for my ears anyhow). :) But... congrats on your finding your ideal synergy.

    You are welcome! You may want to keep an eye on the classifieds here, and on Ebay if you wanted to hold out for a white set. :) Good luck to you.

    Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 and Wireless!

    These aren't white, but are brand new (according to the site), and they are only $250. I can neither vouch for the seller(s) nor the product(s); I simply found it doing a search... :) Ebay (new $250) & Ebay 2 (used $115) Having access to a brand new set is actually a really lucky find... They...
