    Thanks - that was beautiful. Good thing there is no global warming! :)

    You never know when those classic cheapo giant killer KSC75's might come in handy! :)

    I have seen many of the photos on EA. These buds look great, but I haven't seen much discussion on sound signature.

    @j4100 : It has to wait customers make a review.

    So a little bit, just a little bit overwhelmed.

    How about a challenge: List of the first 5 earbuds someone should start their collection or education with under $100 total. More than 5 or less is fine. Make the list your own!

    Maybe it’s the if I could only take 5 to an island list. Or you can make it a true educational baseline list for a newbie.

    A small explanation of why each one.
    Maybe the list will have the greatest variety.
    Maybe it will have 1 at $50 and 3 at $15 forgoing a 5 count?
    I’m game for throwing some money at a small collection partly so I have a baseline of sound comparisons for people talking about more expensive options. At this stage I don’t see myself spending a couple hundred dollars on earbuds. The part they play in my collection is allowing me full transparency while surrounded by people and family.

    I can only agree after I put the KCS75 on a PortaPro headband.:smile_phones:

    If you like the airy treble of no foams but want the bass impact of foams grab the cheapo aliexpress foams linked a in previous pages for $1. I decided to roll with those for a change from the donuts and they are not dissappointing. Donuts have smoother high´s and slighty more bass impact maybe... or not if you use the foam tape under it´s plenty bassy with both foams, but the thin foams bring out the vocals slighty and the high´s are more crisp and airy. Overall it´s a little more edgy and quicker decay but I'm liking it wearing overear. Such an expansive soundstage and clean separation and imaging. :)

    Thanks seanc6441. Great fodder for researching. Do most people buy on Alibaba, Gearbest, Banggood, places like that? Chinese sellers?

    I'm making a cart now on AliExpress.

    Maybe swap PT15 instead of X6. Others on the list are amazing (didn't hear Nameless but it's already proven to be good).

    My favourite rig with NEC Rahu silver golden naga earbuds by Muchjurat Luzifer. Stellar sound!
