Earbuds Round-Up

  1. NymPHONOmaniac
    Reading reviews and feedback of NiceHCK EBX TOTL earbud begin to work on me....are they as good as the Aliexpress hype tell? From what I read it promess thick impactfull bass with large detailed vocal....and impressive soundstage...if low and mids are excellent, this sure is interesting!

    OH. :)
    Must expensive earbud I own are the Mrz Tomahawk (50$ at the time)....so, I have big attempt about sound upgrade with above 100$ earbuds...wich mean, I want everything to sound good, and full bodied bass is very rare, especially with full bodied mids....will love to mix MRz sound with EMX500 bass, wich even if not perfect have good chunkness to it.

    what about soundstage deepness and layering?

    a 14.8mm gigantic dynamic driver sure promess big soundstage I guess.

    Visiting family there (my wife is from Japan). June through August is the worst time to be in Japan, though. Pretty much like a sauna with high temperatures and humidity.

    Can't recall who exactly but some complained here that they were too "bright" for their taste.

    imo you may like K's 300 Samsara . I was able to grab it for 80euro at the 11.11 sale.

    Great! You can always reach me through my e-mail. I'll get a sim card for data for my mobile phone while in Japan.

    @Cyperus I'm so sorry I forgot to email you back. I'm still quite happy with both CampFreds, and have sunk a bit of money into a new computer, plus ordered the new bluetooth Audeze headphones that will arrive in June or so. Maybe at another time, as I really respect your work.

    I keep seeing: TOTL
    Is this “top of the line” meaning the best a manufacturer makes?

    Please explain. Thank you!

    No, it means among the best available regardless of manufacturer.

    Some manufacturers make multiple TOTL earbuds, and a budget lower end manufacturer would make none.

    UPS just showed up. Too much to ask that it be any of the headphones I ordered, though all coming from China via e packet.

    The willsound mk2s I got are so good, that they easily blow all my other budget buds out of the water. I urge you all to grab a pair if you want the best bud for around $40 shipped...just a perfect all rounder, great fidelity, soundstage, tonality, bass...everything. I took a music appreciation course this quarter, and I could easily tell between the different microphones, masterings, etc. across eras. When people say his buds sound analog, they are not joking whatsoever.

    Which is why it makes me very curious over the new willsound offerings. Does anyone have any information on the willsound mk3 or especially the new willsound mk1 version 2 from Earbuds Anonymous? I was originally wanting a mk3 with the new driver, but the newer mk1 version 2 sounds pretty good as a counterpart to my more neutral willsound mk2s. Rholupat seemed to be fairly impressed with the new mk1s.

    I originally wanted a BS1 to step up, but i always use my earbuds on the go (sometimes while biking) so im not sure the cable would play well with me. The willsound mk2s sound so good even coming from a he-400i with ori pads and a thx-00 ebony...really entices me to buy more willsound :)

    1) For earbuds, any model, the amp is the must. Otherwise, they just do not show their real potential. So when people are disagreeing about some earbuds, it is because of the sources which they use to drive their models.
    2) does anybody here using HUGO or MOJO to drive your earbuds? Does they both have enough power to drive high ohms earbuds with authority?
    3) sorry guys if this message is off topic, but I have Zen 2.0 Black Cardas version for sale or trade for another TOTL earbuds. If you have some, please let me know. They are in perfect condition and I love the sound, but I want to try something else. PM me for offerings))

    From what my friend said, it is a great sounding jakk of all trades earbuds, meaning it would work great if you listen to wide variety of music.
    I agree with @noknok23 suggestion, the samsara is another great all arounder that you should try.

    The MK3 have a thinner mid bass, not too extended sub bass, and brighter treble. It's great for metal and other speedy rock music. MK1 is good if you like warmer tone and fatter low bass than the MK2.

    Between the BS1 and MK2, i prefer the MK2

    Not really, it depends on the (like any other earphones or headphones) impedance and sensitivity. If you're talking about the zen, then yes, it needs amplification

    That's been my experience as well.
