Awaiting your impression too
Listening to them now - mind-blowing for £7! - using ES100 as a DAC there appears to be quite a lot of EQ headroom.

Switching over to Sony NW-ZX300A they're equally impressive - conveying a wide soundstage, with an energetic mid-centric signature, underpinned with good quantity/quality of sub-bass and bass ( - fast and tight attack without boom.)

They undoubtedly require a few hours burn-in to smooth out spikes in the initial treble response - but imho RY buds do seem to source excellent cheap drivers!:L3000:

I thought ry4s ue cable will be in this list
For sound quality, the RY4S is better than a lot on that list, but I was answering a question from someone who was asking about a specific price range of earbuds - which happened to be ~3x more expensive than the RY4S.

Soundwise, what would be your top ten?

Ry4s been in my cart for quite so time. Guess it's time to revisit the cart.

And... Just paid. The UE cable looks promising but the HI plug look sweet .

Well, my tastes tend to vary, depending on source, and usage - but out of 30+ earbuds, I guess I tend to listen to these the most:

01.) Wong Kuan Wae "Blur hALF/hALF" (2.5TRRS, 150Ω)
02.) K's 500-Ohm v2 (2.5TRRS, 500Ω)
03.) Wong Kuan Wae "Blur 魔音" (2.5TRRS, 300Ω)
04.) NiceHCK EBX (MMCX, 32Ω)
05.) Svara-L (MMCX, 32Ω)
06.) RYGMR RY4S (3.5mm TRS UE cable, 32Ω)
07.) MusicMaker ToneKing TO200 (MMCX, 200Ω)
08.) VE Asura 2.0 (2.5TRRS, 150Ω)
09.) PT15 (2017) (MMCX, 32Ω)
10.) MusicMaker ToneKing TP16 (3.5mm TRS, 32Ω)

I'm sure the quality of the UE cable helps with transparency! - these buds are truly wonderful! :)

I got the non UE version and the sound quality for the price is extraordinary, perhaps just a little too bright (for my taste) in the beginning but they are starting to even out, I do find the detail and separation welcome when listening to dialogues in movies, bass is also darn good and I totally agree with your opinion further up. These have me thinking of getting a replacement pair, maybe with UE cable although I doubt I could hear the difference.

When I first read DBaldock9´s post praising them I thought: "fcuk me here we go again, another relapse in my for the love of God try not to buy anything for a long while therapy" but I want to thank him heartily for the recomendation, these buds are great.

Today at work, I've got my RYGMR RY4S connected to the 3.5mm output (Muses02) of my Zishan DSD (AK4497), streaming the Irish & Celtic Music Podcast from YouTube... :ksc75smile:
