Earbuds Round-Up

  1. tayo15
    From 30-50 dollar range, best earbuds I can buy? Past purchases I have had monk + and headroom ms16. I heavily disliked the monk plus. I greatly enjoyed the ms16. The ms16 had comfort issues but it had the closest sound signature I wanted. Spacious soundstage. Mids were emphasized with decent low end and decent high end. I would classify it as a very mid bright headphone.

    Initially I thought it was a separate issue as I heard both the clicking and something more like static, but I also hear it when the buds aren't plugged into anything so it was probably both the cable hitting the housing and microphonics. Wearing over ear has largely eliminated it, thanks!

    the FAAEAL Snow Lotus 2.0 is no joke.

    They go head to head with the EMX500 run off an iphone
    Destroy the EMX500 off a DAP or headphone amp.

    Very addicting sub bass, super clear highs. VERY natural vocal sound
    Soundstage isn't super wide but wide enough.

    I bought the FAAEAL's and once my girlfriend heard them, she stole em :)
    So I bought another.

    I like the PMV B01 Aoede, $35 from Amazon (fast shipping with Prime) or $29 from Penon. It was highly praised when it came out but has been lost among all the new models that keep coming out. $30-$50 is an awkward middle range. People in this thread tend to pursue either very low price models or higher end TOTL and contenders.

    Of course lol. This isn't my first rodeo. I have purchased so many headphones and I know how easily one can slip into the wallet hole. It's just that chifi is coming along so well that sometimes something new comes out and everyone starts recommending them. I have as my main gaming pair HD 700 modded with audio house kit with RS 180 pads. Give it a warm bassy tone. I've purchased a ton of headphones from HD 580, ad900x, mad dogs 3.2, mdr 1000x, momentum 2, NAD hp50, Audeze sine, B&O h6 2nd gen. List goes on an on. For commuting my fave pair is etymiotic hf5 , planning to upgrade those to the more higher end ones.

    Honestly you are describing the penon bs1 official somewhat. It’s got that slight upper mid emphasis that gives a brighter presentation in the mids. If worn with thin foams I would call them bright and clear, but with a nice full bass presentation and clean lower mids. The soundstage is very spacious if worn over ear (I mean effortlessly large and airy) and the imaging is excellent at portraying 3D of sense positioning being equally as deep as it is wide. Pity they cost $99 because they sound exactly like what you are looking for.

    Although the pmv aoede looks like a good suggestion within your price range.

    Um, no. You write "The left shell is red in color while the right shell is blue in color." This is not correct. :cold_sweat:
