  Is anyone able to compare  Rose Masya (carbon fiber) to yinman 600? or yinman 500?
 
Since they're both available for nearly the same price on the aliexpress sale, I was really wanting to take my first step into better earbuds.  But my ears are kinda small, and I can't really fit mx500 shells that great.  Not well enough to invest in a good earbud at least. 
 
So, I was wondering what some of the midrange options for people with smaller ears are.  Would a Masya be too big since I can't fit something like eo320s well?  How do their signatures compare, since they're both fairly monitor-like?  Would the masya isolate more since its closed in the back?


I can't compare the Masya to the Yinman, but do have Yuins. The diameter of the driver portion of the housing is a little smaller on the Masya and I find them harder to fit. In my case, the right bud fits fairly well, but the left is finicky. If you look at them compared to the Yuins, the space between the back of the driver portion that sits in the ear, and the back part of the housing, is larger and I suspect the main cause of odd fitting. I've started messing with tape on the left driver and the fit is getting better. I find the Yuins comfortable as they are with just a donut foam. Very easy to forget you have them in.
 
The Masya isn't actually closed, the back is ported, just differently than the Yuin type. Isolation is about the same between the two, and with music turned up a bit, both do a pretty good job of isolating, though without a totally sealed effect. To compare to my full sized Grados, I can hear more through the Grados than either of the buds when listening at about the same levels.
 
Hope this helps.

Finally recabled both my Qian39 and Edifier H180 a few days back with semi-finished braided cable.
The Qian39 were already nice earbuds but something in the mids (some wonkiness or whatever) was bugging me and its gone. The sound is now very balanced with very good details and better low-end. I haven't listened to the recable H180 much but they were already excellent and now seem to have improved by a certain margin (i now need to do the blutac mod in the housing). In the end very easy and worthwhile recables.
The cables were from here https://www.aliexpress.com/item/DIY-headphone-cable-transparent-black-high-end-headphone-line-UE18-core-single-crystal-copper-wire-1/32621768744.html?spm=2114.13010608.0.0.jwHpQ0 

DId you recabled yourself? What is required to do so and how easy to do it? Also, if Flat cables are also available for recabling? (like this: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Ugreen-3-5mm-audio-cable-90-degree-right-angle-flat-jack-3-5-mm-aux-cable/32608693395.html?spm=2114.01010108.3.452.XOpxJf&ws_ab_test=searchweb0_0,searchweb201602_2_10065_10068_10130_10136_10137_10060_10138_10062_10141_10056_10055_10054_10059_10099_129_10103_10102_10096_10144_10052_10053_10142_10107_10050_10143_10051_10526_10529_10084_10083_10119_10080_10082_10081_10110_10111_10112_10113_10114_10517_10078_10079_10073_10070_10122_10123_10120_10124-10119,searchweb201603_1,afswitch_1_afChannel,ppcSwitch_5,single_sort_0_default&btsid=b8b18da4-00a2-47a1-90ea-2dac75cd7fbb&algo_expid=0296d28e-a533-46be-92f5-853235ab6e68-47&algo_pvid=0296d28e-a533-46be-92f5-853235ab6e68)

I've been working on re-cabling one set of my Qian39 earbuds, as well.
The wires are soldered to the Ranko 2.5mm TRRS, and braided / twisted.
This evening, I'll be threading them into the earbud shells, and soldering them to the drivers.

I was unsure if it were appropriate to mention my ad in the classifieds here or not, but a long time, well respected member here assured me it was ok to do that.
 
So, in case anyone is interested, due to my preference for IEM's at this point in time I am listing my CampFreds for sale.
 
Peace out. :)
