Just received some Blur 266 PK32 (my first buds) from a fellow Head-fier. Currently running it with the Hiby R3II, which honestly may be bottlenecking the performance of the Blurs- something that I didn't expect. Quick first impressions below:

Bass extension is lacking compared to my over-ears, as expected. Quite impressed with the quality of the bass (nice and fast sounding) coming from these little drivers, the quantity is not my taste but the other qualities of the bud more than make up for it.

Mids are absolutely stunning. The timbre isn't exactly neutral (close though), as there is a layer of emphasis and brilliance to it that makes it way more exciting to listen to vocals compared to my over-ears. It is tuned in a way to place the main star of the show on the center stage with supporting instruments around it, a unique holographic experience helped by its massive soundstage.

Treble extension is great and the whole frequency range is presented without sibilance while keeping most of the shimmer and sparkle. Complements the soundstage very well in that it is not too forward.

Soundstage: Super big, like the Arya Stealth I tried at Canjam. Moderately bigger than my over-ears. Not as deep sounding though.

I like the different experience the bud offers over my usual set of headphones. They also disappear in your ear, which is a huge plus. A great pick for music that is not bass-heavy.

My Blur hALF/hALF are with Wong, to be re-cabled, since the original wire insulation was breaking down where I wear the cables over-the-ears.
In conversing with him on Facebook about his ideas to improve the tuning of my earbuds - he mentioned that he recently quit his job as an Elevator/Lift Technician, and will have more time for earbud building & tuning.
I'm looking forward to getting the hALF/hALF back. :ksc75smile:

After reading about them in this thread, I just received and put on some Hiegi foams. They improved greatly on the fit, and I have also noticed an increase in bass response. After applying MSEB (Hiby EQ feature) of -35 to the Vocals to make them crisper and less forward, I can say that the 266 PK32 are wonderful sounding, with a HUGE stage, airy highs, open-sounding mids, and quality bass. Can't believe that this portable setup only costs $250 (R3 II and these)!

Are you referring to the HieGi donut foams?
