Earbuds Round-Up

  1. chinmie
    the PT15 is my most favorite earbud under $20 right now (not to mention one of my most used everyday). it's balanced signature is rare in the budget segment. i think it's the cheapest you can get to Etymotic kind of sound, but of course with airier and fatter overall sound (because of the inherent characteristics of the earbuds compared to IEMs)
    The PT15 accentuate the mid (hence vocals and speeches are clear), the MK2 has a mild V-ish shape but also still clear in the mids and have a big mid bass that's not bloating up the vocals.

    oooh, and the 10.000 days is my most favorite Tool album (along with Ænima) :L3000:

    Have you tried them overear? This I found improved the fit, usability of the wire (better weight distribution so they don’t fall out) and the soundstage immensely.

    Out of curiosity (I cannot remember if I asked you before) did you try them overear? I’m not sure if it has the same effect without foams but when I applied the super thin foams and used them overear, the soundstage was IMMENSE. I mean, it was doing more spacious things in depth than my masya, and width was on par with the Masya. So If that was your main gripe, i hope you had a chance to try it that way before it was sold :D

    Yes a massive upgrade, don’t think anyone who has heard the two would say otherwise.

    Yes it was me who was probably the confused one, I have the variant with 4 holes which I bought from a listing on nicehck saying ‘new senfer pt15’ but apparently I have the old version :/. Chimie I most likely correct with his statement.

    I've ever tried every patterns I could, including 'overear' before you raised it up so long time. I am a very first one who got BS1 and it is not 3.5SE, I bought 2.5BL. Since I have a lot of chance to try high-end stuffs, so my familiarity is pretty high. The one reason I prefer Mojito to Masya. Cause Masya is just mediocre soundstage for me.

    Looking to get either Nicehck EBX or Shozy BK in upcoming Aliexpress sale, how does this 2 compare in sound quality?
    Build wise it seems EBX will be more durable with mmcx connection..

    What kind of discounts can we expect from the sale? I've never bought anything from Ali during the sale before.

    shozy BK is on sale? can you share the link please? Best deal Ive found so far is K's 300 samsara and K's 600. from 130 to 75euro
     
  11. spidey84
    From what I see EBX will be discounted to US$106 from 136 during sales, really tempting to buy at this pricing. I was considering Penon BS1 also, but it seems like fit will be a problem due to its bulky cable

    I've seen anything from 25% to 38% savings so far

    If the Samsara is down to €75/$92 as suggested above (yep it is!) then you may look at getting that one, that seems like a great deal!

    Although I now realise it is 300 ohm, take that into consideration!
