Earbuds Round-Up

  1. Moonstar
    Yes, you are right I prefer earbuds with clear and transparent presentation. But I thinking that the first 4 earbuds are very good in detail and the Rose Masya is my first love, LOL. The downside of the Masya is the fit that is a bit annoying for me. Ah, and thanks for your advice with the Foams :)

    It's great that you have those to enjoy, and that you enjoy them all.

    London Grammar is good, but it's too bad that the vocalist is so weak:



    Just kidding of course. Hannah Reid's voice, and that song, always give me goosebumps.

    Just wondering why TOTL wasn't written next to each of these; If I'm to understand its use on this thread?

    I'm making a stupid joke.....but when is it that someone types TOTL next to these models?

    I was about shake my head in disapproval when you said ‘weak’ but then read the final sentence :D

    My favourite female vocalist isn’t even a star yet, but damn if her voice isn’t just perfection to my ears


    and she covers pink floyd too...:L3000:

    EBX is not shown in your photo.
    I like EBX better than BS1 !
    Both are the best earphones.

    This is a matter of personal preferences, I like the EBX and I was really surprised how transparent it sounds. But the BS1 Official has additional warmth and fullness that was missing on the EBX.

    It’s just a label, like how some cars are called ‘supercars’, it’s more subjective term than a clear definition to us.

    Is the ebx more like the masya then? clear and ‘light’? Although I know the masya is kind of warm sound too thanks to the bass driver.

    All of this listed earbuds are TOTL for me because they are performing much much better than many IEM's that have twice the price :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

    The Masya sound's fuller in the midrange than BS1 and EBX. The EBX sound's more transparent than Masya in in this area but has not enough body and warmth. The BS1 is in the middle right between the Masya and EBX. BTW, BS1 has additional micro detail what is very good for a price tag of 99 USD, especially for such a great cable and premium package.

    Interesting, to my ears the BS1 is fuller than masya, but the tonality is more neutral and the masya is more warm/musical. They have comparable low end fullness but the masya is a little more extended, masya has more powerful high frequencies but it’s not night and day difference. But for midrange vocals especially I think the BS1 is more weighty but relaxed, masya lighter and more upfront presence.

    I’d gladly take a combination of masya tonality and forward vocals with BS1 smoothness, deep vocal body and depth/layering.

    of course the shozy bk dominates them both with ease for vocal body and texture it’s on a whole other level, but doesn’t have the soundstage to make it ‘grand’ sounding. It’s an intimate lush vocal presentation.

    But as it is they both do things well in a different manner on my V20.

    Great description and comparison! The sound of earbuds are very fit depending, I have not so good experiences with it that could change the sound drastically :)

    Well I have just enjoyed those two videos with the NiceHCK EBX in my ears :)

    @ClieOS If you have the time, or whenever you are free, could you measure the rose masya the same way you did the BS1? I’m trying to find where the BS1 is sounding ‘off’ and I know it’s somewhere in the upper mid/lower treble that’s either sucked out or emphasised that sounds artificial but I have nothing to compare it too. The masya sounds pretty natural if a little bright but would serve as an ideal guideline as it’s very well extended.

    Is it too much to ask for a frequency chart for the masya? I’ll be forever in your debt! lol
