  So i've decided on the MEMT X5.  But just a quick couple of questions I'd like to ask...any help would be appreciated!
 
1)I've heard the ear tips are no good.  Any recommendations that are available on aliexpress?
 
2)What store do you recommend now?  I used to buy everything from the store that no one mentions.

I bought my X5's from Penon Audio. Most people seem to be using Spin Tips for better tip sound quality. I also bought a pair from some random Al seller. They are $5 US, though. I wonder if these is a cheaper version out there somewhere? There are also Ali stoes that sell Comply type foam tips for $1 US.

I assume you mean Spinfits, but are these the comply's you are talking about? https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4Pairs-8pcs-KZ-Noise-Isolating-Memory-Foam-C-sets-3mm-5mm-Comply-T100-T400-Ear-Tips/32419364287.html?ws_ab_test=searchweb0_0,searchweb201602_5_10065_10130_10068_433_434_10139_10136_10137_10138_10060_10062_10141_10056_10140_10055_10054_10059_10099_129_10103_10102_10096_10052_10053_10050_10107_10142_10051_10106_10084_10083_10080_10082_10081_10110_10111_10112_10113_10114_10078_10079_10073_10070_10122_10123_10124,searchweb201603_13,afswitch_1,ppcSwitch_5,single_sort_0_default&btsid=10a51bef-7966-4fba-ac98-04cfddb484fb&algo_expid=77207c4e-1f40-429a-9bc6-fb24a5d7a284-1&algo_pvid=77207c4e-1f40-429a-9bc6-fb24a5d7a284
 
 
Because if so, I've tried these...not good at all.

My Memt X5 that I just received a few days ago has a short in the right side wire and the music is cutting in and out. This is the second order cuz my first was stolen by the PO.. Not good luck so far with this earphone..Love the sound quality though..I got a msg into the seller to see what he advises. I can't name him but I will update so that others will be aware.


Seller (UNNAMED) wanted me to send back at my cost before resending new MemtX5...when I said no because I had already spent 32 dollars on two orders. He then ignored my messages for two days and only replied back after I initiated a dispute. He offered half price for a new pair which would be 8 dollars. I took it only because I really want a good pair of these but I think my AliExpress buying days are done. Customer care after the sale is too unsure. Luckily this was not on an expensive pair or I would be livid. Think I will stick with Amazon or maybe Penon DHL delivery in the future. Worth the extra dough for sure fast delivery and Excellent customer care after the sale. Just can't take the risk anymore...

After more listening, the Uiisii 905 demonstrates its true potential. Soundstage open up, sounds more holographic. Now it sounds much better than M4. Outstanding on 3D sound presentation and timbre. My best buy below $40 and might be the most cost-effective earphones I've bought.

Glad to hear good news about the 905 I owned a couple of UiiSii and in general I liked what they had to offer... unfortunately i still have not had the pleasure to listen to the 905.

If you can prove the fault with a video then you should have taken the dispute to it's conclusion. I ignore any solutions offered by the seller unless its exactly what I'm after. Ali has repeatedly given me all my money back without returning the item.
 
1. document fault with a video
2. open dispute
3. ignore seller's solution unless it's exactly what you're after
4. appeal AE decision if it doesn't go in your favour, tell AE you intend to raise credit card chargeback
5. issue a chargeback

Really? I found them to be amongst the worst purchase I've made to date.
 
There's no bottom end the soundstage is narrow. The earpieces are far too big and impossible to get a comfortable seal in the ear.

Yeah, lack of bass really kills it for me. Seriously doubt that it can beat the M4 which is a pretty good IEM for its price. Only the HM7 sounds alright albeit too much bass for my liking.

3) Are there any other random cheap headphones that ppl are intersted but haven't tried yet?  I always like to throw 10-15 on a brand or style that no one has tried and I can put a comparison when i get it. 
 
Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11

Im actually quite interested in the moxpad X9. I think they are on Aliexpress for 18-20 USD.

Ordered these from Ali. Will let you guys know the impression once i recieve it. A $7 dual driver with detachable cable and such gorgeous looks. If they sound half as good as they look, i'd be a happy man.

Try searching for Comply T400/T500. Those are the ones I bought for 90 cents a pair. They are still on their way to me, so I can't give you an opinion. However, for 90 cents, you shouldn't say no?

Personally, I would never buy foams again.
Yes you can finally get them for reasonable prices now because China doesn't care about Comply's patent monopoly. But they still end up splitting in half after as little as two days. That's completely unreasonable.

I went back to Comply originals and shopped around, I found that with careful treatment I can get a month or two out of them. Silicones irritate my ear and you never get a consistent seal moving from one earphone to the next so writing reviews can be a PITA.
 
The Chinese ones seemingly only come in two sizes and they really don't last, a few weeks at best. KZ do 'Olives' but they lack the internal collar so don't work very well.

Are these with a detachable cable, cause it's not mentioned in the listing?
