    Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

    What's the general consensus between the Galaxy Buds and Buds+? The Buds+ are cheaper here for some reason. Are there any chances Samsung will add aptX in future versions or are they likely to stick with their proprietary technology?

    Earbuds Round-Up

    Yep I can agree with that. I always remember the earbuds in the 80s and the difference foam made, back then I wouldn't dream of using them without foam. Sadly for me, earbuds just don't fit my ears well enough to get good sound. On the other hand, EarPods fit great and because of that give good...

    The seller refunded me and has left me no return instructions. So I guess he doesn't want them back. I did tell him I would be happy to return if he paid for postage... I am not being out of pocket all because he is selling fakes!

    Well, I was a complete newbie and I recabled 2 of them without incident, it was fun too! In regards to opening them, you can literally open them with your fingers alone, if not wear rubber gloves and it's even easier. No need to stick sharp tools in to the shell to open them, that always...

    Sony XBA-N3AP and XBA-N1AP — Impressions thread

    Nice thank you, it seems I can get a pair for £202, a bit cheaper than Ebay.

    What sort of price do these retail for in Japan? I have a friend who lives there and I may ask him to get me a pair.

    Recabling is so easy though, there's really no reason not to do it. I made sure to get a nice thin cable from AE as I didn't want anything too heavy. I'd never soldered before, but my brother had a soldering iron and I borrowed that. My recable cost me £1.19 in total, and the earphones are so...

    Final Audio Design Impressions and Discussion Thread

    Ah yes, you're correct. I guess my worry is the E2000 will be too anaemic on the bass side. I have the RE-400's and everyone has so much praise for them but I find them to be a difficult listen as the bass is just so lacking in them. I've heard a few people prefer the E2000 over the E3000 but I...

    Have you tried opening the shell? Looks like it's a stray wire from the cable. You can easily open the shell with rubber gloves, just twist a little and pull apart.

    Comment by 'phixion' in item 'Samsung AKG OEM In Ear Headphones'

    I have a pair of these from the Samsung S10e, they sound really good considering they are bundled with a phone. I read that the S8 earphones were tuned differently and supposedly better, I managed to get a pair online from a seemingly reputable source. They came in OEM packaging (including the...

    Probably safer to do the knot, although the cable is quite bulky when tied and there isn't much space in the shell, I wonder how it affects sound. In any case, the cable is quite tight in the strain relief tubes, so hopefully it won't move much. If it does I will have to re-do them and tie a...

    Just did a pair of mine, same cable. Did you add strain reliefs (knots)? I was going to but it completely engulfed the housing so I didn't bother. Also a good tip, if you want to get the shell open without damaging the bass port, use rubber gloves. You can easily open them without scuffing the...

    Shropshire, UK. I'm no expert but they aren't hugely bass heavy, they actually sound quite bright and forward.

    SpinFit Eartips Thread - The cheapest audio upgrade

    Spinfit are great, just very expensive for what you get. Upside is they last a long time. I don't think it would hurt them to increase the tips in the box or lower the price slightly though, I'd imagine their profit margin per box is quite big.

    Cheers! I didn't know the wording to search for to be honest, but it seems "diy earphone cable 3.5mm" brings up a lot of results. I ordered a few of these in white: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32815721672.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.69e14c4djtgjNT They look thin and have good reviews. I...

    Of course, I gained plenty of useful knowledge from just browsing the forums. But in this case I'd like input from people who have recabled these and know the ins and outs. For example, I want to be able to use the included strain relief, so I need a thin cable, I would also like a light cable...

    I don't think MMCX is a good idea tbh. You get the best sound when you push these in deep, MMCX connections are quite fat and would mean shallow insertion. I'd be interested in hearing thoughts on good cables though, I don't really want to have to trawl 36 pages to find answers.

    What are some good cable options to recable these? Budget but good.

    Yamaha EPH-100

    So, did anyone ever manager to open these up? I have a pair that my cat got hold of on day 1 of ownership and they haven't worked since (the cable is chewed). Wouldn't mind trying to recable if I can get in to them without damaging. Also, anyone heard of the EPH-100 issues affecting the...
