Earbuds Round-Up

    No I believe Sir ClieOS is the rightful king :D

    Thanks man, it’s basically a new hobby for me and I get invested in my hobbies lol. It’s been fun! It’s the contribution of everyone on here and the friendly attitude to new comers that makes this a special place though.

    Out of curiosity have you heard the RX1 or moondrop nameless? And if so how does your emx500 clear and emxs500 compare?

    The RX1 is a gem indeed but I always go back to either 2 earbuds

    - EMX500 (clear) but that's not the best one out of the collection

    I'm REALLY into the Snow Lotus 2.0, it's 64ohm so I have to push it a little but the payoff is amazing. MUCH cleaner the EMX and deeper bass. Mind you, I'm running this off a cheapo Sound Blaster OMNI headphone amp.

    I have not tried the Moondrop.
    I also have this still sealed (BS1) Waiting for my Hiby R6 to arrive. Can't wait to hear them!

    @Mezzi , if you are directly comparing EMX500 and Vido, especially if you've listened to EMX for some time, Vido will sound muddy and give an impression that it is completely lacking in treble. But if you suffer through about 10 mins with Vidos, your impression will change considerably. (still not EMX level of perceived clarity and sparkle but not a muddy mess that it sounds like when quickly comparing)

    Having said this, EMX is better imho. Vido is made for people that prefer relaxed smooth sound (and hopefully bass light music, otherwise that smooth sound takes a step back to bass quantity).

    @Mezzi : A Viablue plug detected!! On the left-side, is it a Buddha image?

    By the way, recently I look up to the rholupat website and I find DIY modded earbuds so called 'BEJO' (Edifier H180 Mod) and 'Vaijiac' (Elibud Vifth Mod). Does anyone tried them? May I know your impression?

    Burn-in-buddies! I have done that with several buds/iem and DAP combos. Two new toys are better than one!

    Well, thats what I wanna hear thanks. Yep, listen to classical and jazz mustly but to electro and indie signers as well, so an All arounder, especially in this price range, is a MUST!

    Indeed. Viablue (EMX500)
    The Brass Buddha assures me this is the real Zen. :wink:

    Emx500 clear is the best variant ?
  9. Mezzi

    Absolutely!... but don't ask me why. The cable is different from all the other ones (silver cable) which may contribute to the difference but I'm not 100%.
    But there is a clear difference (no pun intended). More sub, more air, wider soundstage.

    The black one with brown cable doesn't come close to the sound of the transparent.

    no to vido, emx500 is ok but both don't hold a candle to Seahf AWK-F64 or Faaeal Snow Lotus 2.0 64 ohm

    Does it beat the graphene?

    Ohhh hiby r6! Very nice please let me know how it plays with earbuds having such a high output impendance! You know this right?

    Besides there’s a simple solution of buying an ifi earbuddy/iematch to lower the output impendance to 1-2.5 ohm so it’s not a deal breaker for earbud/iem users.

    Try that Bs1 overear with super thin foams :)

    You can try my tape mod (ask for an updated version im always improving it lol) if you aren’t getting the bud to fit/stay in place and a good seal.
