    Yeah, I knew that...rolling the dice and see if it's that big of a deal. I'll report back but it probably won't be until the end of March for me.

    Can you even handle the Snow Lotus?

    An argument can be made about new PT15 (according to others) and I'd say Seahf 150C as well. EMX500 still hangs around but I'd rate it below 150C. Have yet to hear PT15 and Snow-lotus which are on the way to me.
    I'd just like to add that 150C is a very easy to drive earbud, in fact it goes louder than EMX500. It is sensitive and honestly feels more like a 32 or even 16 Ohm buds, but it does have the higher impedance - triggers LG V20's high impedance mode (which could probably blow the drivers if you are not careful)

    I have the PT15 old version. I'd like to know about the significant changes.
    I found the PT15 old very bass light and excessive treb for my taste.

    Apparently it's a new driver and a little bit different venting on the back resulting in a much more balanced sound. This is only what I've read here, I still haven't heard them.

    This is in order of preference right?

    Surprised the BK is lowish, did you try the donuts? Although I'm guessing you prefer brighter earbuds judging by the top 10 placements.

    I found a new love for my Masya a few days ago when I ditched thick foams for super thin aliexpress foams + paper filter. It´s so clean and light, smoother than before but keeping detail/texture you lose with the stock foams.

    I wouldn't call it bright anymore, it gives the feeling of a dark earbud but is clear and clean sounding like a bright bud, hard to explain- but so easy to listen to :)

    Overall it just sounds neutral and transparent with only a hint of warmth/darkness. So good now and no real fatigue compared to without the paper filter where the sound with thin foams was murderously bright.

    Nice list! I only have 2 of those, but I concur with your rankings (of those two at least lol!)

    I honestly couldn't pick between my masya bk and bs1 now. Depends on my mood and the genre, all do different things amazingly. Masya is in my ears now listening to London Grammer, a perfect match for euphoric vocals and extended deep bass and clear high´s. Airy and atmospheric is my best description of the sound here.
