Which cable is best with the PT15? There are several choices so just wondered what everyone was using. Also, is anyone running them balanced? I may start heading that way shortly, just for something to do!
Thanks!
I have 3 different cables for the **** PT15. I don't find any difference in sound quality.

that cable color scheme looks like Mogami microphone cable. how's your take on the Zoomfred's sound?
After 50hrs burn in Zoomfred is finally opening up. Sweet analog treble, clear and addictive mids, tight, fast bass. I enjoy it !

Hi fellow head-fiers, I will be travelling to Malaysia next week. Anyone here who has some earbuds to share and is kind to meet with me around Johor area. I'm most interested with the BS1, Shozy BK, the Campfreds, Masya, Liebelisleid (wishful) and the like. I will be bringing my phones and DAPs with me if anyone is interested. A PM is much appreciated. Thanks!

What is the composition of each cable? (copper/silver/gold...steel!?) and any other info like name, brand, price etc.

Not to doubt your opinion but it would help to know the info so as to be assured of the cables in question.

Using Dell Venue 11 Pro, volume and mic work using the MS16. I can try with my laptop later if you'd like, it's also a Dell.
It probably doesn't work on laptops or PCs, only windows tablets.

@Danneq OT: Found an Ath-EM7 for under 100, so will finally get to hear it.

Attn Headroom MS16 owners:

I know these aren't the best sounding buds out there, but they aren't the worst either.

But I did find a quick and easy way to make them much better than they were stock though.

The little round "grille" on the back of the earbud is just a peel and stick type of grille, like you find on IEM nozzles (such as the KZ ZS6). If you gently peel this up using a sewing needle or pair of tweezers, the full vent hole is exposed, and the sound improves considerably.

The grille is extremely restrictive, reducing the true of the 'area' of the vent hole down to a fraction of the actual hole. I even had (2) totally different grilles on mine (with different size and pattern of holes), causing a minor difference in sound between the R and L side!

Once the grilles are removed, you can easily hear the effect by gently covering the vent holes with your fingers while wearing them. It will become imediately apparent that the drivers need a lot of venting to breathe properly, and the more they are restricted, the worse the sound quality.

Of course wearing the MS16 sideways improves the sound even more.

The mod is totally reversible - the grille piece just peels and sticks like a sticker. I saved mine on a small piece of wax paper in case I ever want to replace them down the road.

Heck, since there was such a huge improvement in sound by exposing the hole, I plan on drilling the hole larger to see if any additional gains can be made.

Finally, for those that want to wear them normally (ie flat) instead of sideways, I have found that these work very well (after trying a few different designs). Note that you can't use any foam covers when using the silicone wings: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/New...Earplugs-For-In-ear-earphone/32810617185.html

Might be worth trying as I found them to be a little lackluster.
