Earbuds Round-Up

    Gives it a more premium feel for sure..

    +1 for the premium feel of Seahf 150C. Very soft cables that don't have kinks, glossy black color with perfect finish - very nice package that feels more premium than EMX500 for example that it competes with. I actually like the feel of 150C more than Auglamour RX-1, the cables of RX-1 are not comparable to 150C.

    That’s always a tricky question. Is the shozy bk worth 10 times the price of the diy pk2? I guess it comes down to how much you value each small improvement in SQ.
    RX1 cable is a very grippy rubbery feel, although it’s the shell of the rx1 that’s superior. Need more metal shell and braided/high quality cable earbuds :)
  4. mbwilson111
    Yes, the rx1 shell does fit me a little better than the seahf 150 but I am able to get a fit with the 150.
  5. seanc6441
    Well I meant in build quality but the fit is nice too because of it’s size, it’s a pleasure to use them after using bigger shells.

    some prefer to have 10 variety earbuds worth $10 each, while some prefer to have 1 for $100. neither of them is wrong. it's just preference.
    usually people would start like the former, and gradually step (or leap) up when they know what sound they like...

    and then they go and collect the budgets again.

    that's the natural progression of head fi (abd and this earbud forum in particular) :smile_phones:

    I'm enjoying listening to music with the Svara-L earbuds tonight, keep forgetting how much I like them

    the svara L is special, if it has just a bit of sparkle on the top end, it would kill the samsara in my book. even now, though i rated the samsara higher because technical performance, the svara still wins for me overall, with it's hall like soundstage it's and big, warm bass

    Because of their big, warm sound, the Svara-L (115Ω) is especially nice when you're dropping off into a nap... :ksc75smile:

    I lost interest in the BK blue when people said that the only difference is the cable. If that is the case, I'm not surprised if there is little difference in the sound.

    So I guess it won't bother you much that there is a 6 strands version of the BK blue (the normal version, which is the one I get, has 4 strands of wires) that has received A LOT of raved review among Shozy fans in China? :imp:

    wow, they can't stop milking the bk huh?
    maybe they'll release a 10 strands version in a month or so. :beyersmile:

    Apparently 6 strands are the most the housing can take without any further mod.
  14. zeta555
    it would be so much easier if they just use detachable cable.

    If 4 strands is 2x price, then by extrapolation 6 strands would be 3x price?
