    Earbuds Round-Up

    Is there a way to do a test without opening the shell? How about setting the source to mono and comparing the result using the tone generator in my signature? I have a handful of earbuds that sound like ****, maybe out of phase?

    I was able to find the UE version by hovering over the color choice. But what is UE?

    Or for half the price of the MK2 consider the Yincrow RW-9. It's pretty amazing at any price! It's my daily driver (got two of them) and an excellent all 'rounder. No need to change earbuds as I move between music genres.

    Earbuds Round-Up

    How does the Willsound MKII compare with Yincrow RW-9? Does it complement it in any way or redundant? Listening to John Maus with LG v30 and Yincrow RW-9, Not sure if it could sound any better!

    You understand this thread is for earbuds, not IEMs?

    looking for an upgrade to onboard audio

    I don't intend to hijack the thread. Is there a good (and inexpensive) USB dongle with a decent DAC that will accomplish this? I have a decent laptop with B & O sound, but my LG V30 and V10 are vastly superior. As in I can tell the difference in a blind test.

    Realized I don't own any earbuds with volume control, only Monk+ with mic and pause. In for a pair.

    Agreed, the RW-9 is pretty amazing. A slight step up from the SL 1+ CE for well produced music.

    Earbuds Round-Up

    I'm bumping your question since no replies. Please feel free to ignore my opinions :) I see in your profile that you have Monk plus Vidos Philips SHE3800 I assume something must be lacking in those very decent earbuds. The one thing that stands out, at least for the Vido and SHE3800 is that...

    Here's a photo of my K's 64 purchased in 2017. The cable is a full 12 inches / 30.5 cm longer than a Monk+'s cable! Note "K's earphone" isn't painted on the shell. I've been giving another listen. I still believe that these must be have a different sound signature than the K's 64 recently...

    A little cheaper here, but never dealt with that seller.

    Earbuds Round-Up

    If you only care about getting a good sounding earbud with sufficent bass and decent treble and mids, get a Vido for $2 (there are links in earlier posts. I can post later if you can't find the link). The cable is kind of thin and the plug typical - cheap. They are pretty amazing, the best value...

    I see you have the WillSound PK16, Faaeal Snow Lotus 1 / 1+, and Kube V1. How to they compare? I'm most curious about SL 1.0+ vs. Kube v1.

    Earbuds Round-Up

    My point was, in addition to v shaped earbuds, not a bad idea to have balanced sounding earbuds to hear the music as the sound mixer and audio engineers intended. Of course the best way to accomplish this would be by using and over ear monitor headphones. I assume many of us would rather skip...

    I hope so! I think a good introduction to earbuds are a Vido $2 and Qian 25 $5. For $7 that's some good quality listening gear to get started!

    What's lacking in the SL and what source do you use? Anything in particular you listen to primarily? More info will let you get a better response. My wife isn't into earbuds and she was blown away by the SL 1.0+. More than my other earbuds. And there are others in the same price range as good...

    What's inside of the rectangular part of the ACG or what it its purpose? My guess a tiny circuit board?

    Earbuds Round-Up

    Listening to - with TY Hi-Z HP-650. Not bass monsters - laid back, good mids, and very good resolution. I'm not sure if even spending and extra $300 (HP-650 cost $100) on ATH-CM2000Ti would reveal anything else in the the acoustive guitar, vocals or mix. At least or my ears And for this -...

    There's also the Yincrow RW-9. I haven't heard it, but have it on order from here. Also described as big, u shaped sound. Looking forward to comparing the SL 1.0+ CE to the Yincrow RW-9 when my Yincrow arrives next month.

    Already discussed earlier in this thread. And the SL 1.0+ CE is still available.

    Interesting that one of the comparisons is to the EB200 which is a 200 Ohm earbud, and one of my favorite budget models. Proof you don't need to spend alot to get great sound from an earbud. The best price that I could find is from this store closed until February 12th for the Chinese New Year.

    I don't mod. I always assumed you guys used a heat gun to melt the glue. If not, I'm sure you have your reasons.
