@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

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 :)
Truer words have never been spoken! This X 1000!!!

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.
When is someone going to create a BS1/Masya/BK love child?

Well I have just enjoyed those two videos with the NiceHCK EBX in my ears :)
And I just listened to London Grammar's "Truth Is a Beautiful Thing" album with the snow lotus 2.0. Very nice.

Thanks guys and gals for that recommendation for those 100 earbud foams for a $1 on Ali! Man those things sound terrific! Makes all the buds I’ve tried them on more airy and articulate. Love em, going to buy some more.
They are are hard to put on without ripping them, as they seem to have less elasticity, but worth it. I think I ripped 8 of them trying to put them on the very squirrly PMV’s. A lot of them are also not correctly center punched. For a $1 though, I don’t care. Monk pack costs $4 and I only like the thin ones there, so it’s a deal to me! :)

You and @HungryPanda , haven't you heard? I'm downsizing here! Stop tempting me with new buds! :joy:
But seriously, which is better, snow lotus or the Seahf 150c? And how do they compare to the ourart, Svara L, and MK2?

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:
Amazing talent.

I'm pretty sure I prefer the 150c's by a bit, but I need to find them to be sure. I dug out what I thought were the 150c's, but it turns out I dig out the Beta Asura's (which I am now happily listening to lol). Which begs the question - where are my darned 150c's??? Stay calm Wayne, stay calm...

Amazing talent.
Yes and she has released her first album it’s on spotify. Although I like her covers because they are so different than the originals. Taking great songs and adding a new twist to them.

1.K'S 300 Ohm Samsara Ver.
2. Shozy BK
3. Rose Masya
What about your liebesleid? Are you forgetting about it or is it really not in your top 3?

Pixies! I just thought of them a couple days ago. Not listened to them in years. I’ll need to check out her covers.

I would have to give it to the Seahf 150's as well. Willsound Mk2's are better than Snow Lotus imo

I see the Liebesleid (2.5mm) is back in stock on Amazon, but Shenzhen Audio really jacked up the price... Are there no other cheaper listings?
