What's the deal with this mini monk i've been hearing about?
 
Those Aliexpress shells I linked made it seem like they worked for either 14.5 or 15.4mm drivers but I could wait if a new shell style's coming out.

Made a rookie mistake with my order - on the VE website, I have my correct shipping address. I paid via Paypal, which I just noticed has the wrong shipping address. Bummer. And they have already shipped the item. Double bummer. I'm now in contact with Lee regarding this. I hope they follow my address that's on their website...

I've gotta. My colleagues at work are somewhat enamored of its sound. Think they'll sell like hotcakes again.

Hey @zhibli06 Lee buddy... just got my 5 red hot Monks. The 1st pair sound just as awesome as all of my other Monks. Thanks dude! Red really isn't my color, but damn, these look good. Nicely done! :)
 
If you added a mic-monk option, I'd be wearing them everywhere and all of the time. Right now when I get a call, I get kinda sad because I have to remove my Monks and put in some other non-monk-mic-phones instead. So sad. Heck, I'd even pay $6 for mic-monks lol!  Actually, I'd pay a whole lot more.. maybe even $7!!!
 
Seriously though, the red hot monks are very cool. Thanks again!

  Hey everyone, I got the Monk + but they sound way too different from the originals monks: I am even questioning whether they are good or not to be honest. 

 
Try sticking on two thin double foams on each driver and see how that works for you.
