The Monk+ are winning me over.  Tubes seem to give them the fleshiness that I like about the Monk Originals.  Might a/b some more tonight.  Can't get enough of Monteverdi!  I am brought to tears listening to Laetatus sum over the Monk+.  : )

What's their complains then? I don't have an account but for a limited edition, I assume it can cost a bit more than 5 ridiculous dollars.


Some were complaining about the look, the potential knock-off of the shell (explained very well by Lee), the color, the supposed "sound quality" for $5....just general lack of knowledge trashing of something they know nothing about....it was derogatory towards Lee and VE...completely uncalled for...

I hope Mr Lee doesn't mind. It's a shame for all the Americans who appreciate the work he's putting in his little company.

sounds to me , u wanna say "It's a shame for all the Americans who can't appreciate the work he's putting in his little company." lol
 
 
but I got what u mean, and trust me~ I got used to it lol.
 
here is a couple of things very common in China.
 
1st no one dare to review the monk , I am not asking people to put their rep on the line like @DJScope  for me ~ but u can't see any of our reviews in Chinese Reddit ( gotta pay to be there)
 
2nd people , when praising the Zen, would choose to start by calling me a diy brand, then make fun of our name VE (again , I did NOT heard the name "vision ears" ever before I named my company and brand.
 
3rd in China, U do need to "buy" their reviews.
 
So I did the only thing I can do, and I think most of guys who knows my style can take a pretty good guess how I am telling them to go and xxxxxxxxxx
 
so u got the picture~ lol
 
Cheers

Regarding to the Monk with mic version I can use my Monk with Meizu M1 Note without any mic because M1 note has a second mic for calls. If your phone has that feature I don't think you'll need a mic on your earphones. :wink:
