Hi, what is the least expensive iem i can get with a decent quality? not expecting anything special, I will use them in bed. Two important things: it should be very comfortable to sleep in (probably small?) and no v-shaped/bright!
I used the kz atr but it just fell apart.

I need to say this, but I personally avoid IEMs for sleeping, it is not very good for your ears to have any IEMs in for long periods of time. I take breaks even when listening to music, even with full over-the-ear headphones, I never listened for more than about an hour without a break

I use a sleep timer and i listen to ambient sounds. After 30 min it turns off.

i also only listens to very low volume while going to sleep and not using endless looping playlist, so i don't think it would be a problem. the only thing that concerns me is waking up with a severed cable because of me tossing and turning while sleeping

Italy
Running through London, England, the by far most visible earphones were the white Apple buds/pods (some wireless) Despite the tight "tube", commuters appeared to rely more on headphones than on earphones...with Bose taking the lead, followed by Sony...then, after a gap, we saw Marshall, Beats, and the odd Sennheiser.

I did not see @HungryPanda or some other like-minded Head-Fiers with fancy Toneking, iBasso, or Brainwavz models.


London tube ad.

At least they have bose headphones, here in Italy i just see people with colorful crap Beats headphones and so on.
Someone wearing AKG or Marshall around but everyone focusing on brands like Beats, cheap Nubwo stuff and crap headphones in any case.
Apple airpods are everywhere, and i can even see how happy are their owners: the funny thing is i always look for them and for their crap stuff in their ears, actually owning myself good cheap iems that sound way better than those $150ish weird earphones.
In any case, i did not see people here with good stuff except someone (1 or 2 per year) wearing ATH-m40/50 or HD598SR.

Tenhz P4 Pro vs BGVP DM6?

Anyone with a comparison who owns both these earphones?

What is strange is that iPhones have fantastic audio chips and their included earphones as well as their Beats are not great. In the meantime, the KZ AS10 continued to impress on German trains: great seal, sturdy bass, robust sound with very good resolution. I really like them.

Not an audiophile, just a real music lover! :D

Yes this is why can't i understand.
Apple makes such cool products that sound so bad.
Their technologies are anyway blowing any other earphone pair in the market, but they still sound crap even compared to my little memt x5 which is REALLY warm.

In any case, beats is really hard to beat when it comes to crappy sound.
