    Yes many people saying burn in helps... A lot.

    Now someone needs to try their $13-15 150 and 300 GM earbuds... From the same official RY store.

    I would but I'm officially broke atm lol

    i can vouch for the RY4S, my brother have and like it very much, i tried it and it does have a great sound, but i never seem to make a purchase because i thought i already have enough...but all this talk about RY4S...i want to purchase some for backup and gifts for my nieces and nephews. i won't give my son as he only likes using headphones :k701smile:

    by the way @HungryPanda , how's the RY G500 300 ohm sound?

    Burn-in doesn't take too long - they're more transparent now - revealing a very "airy" soundstage - remarkable for the price!...Don't fret I'm broke too...& pulled the trigger on two other pairs this evening! haha!

    Well I've been listening to the RY G500 300 ohms tonight and have to say they are rather good. I was listening to some hard hitting electronic music and the bass was full and and powerful, highs and mids sounded fine. I put on my Fostex T60RP's and they sounded weak in comparison. They are not as good as my K's 500's but the K's 500 are way more expensive. They get a good recommendation from me.

    In other news I also received the acrolink OCC and OCC - pure silver cable in the post today. So now I've got all the parts to start my project.

    The cable is very nice, it's a little stiff as it's teflon coated for durability but the diameter is under 1mm so its thim enough to maintain flex especially when i did a test braid on some. Feels similar to the cable used on my K's Ling.

    Are they a step up from the Ry4s once amped? Quick comparision between the two would be nice :)

    i suspect that they would not sound similar. i don't know if they're using similar/same drivers, but the 300 ohm from most builder that I've tried would have a warmer sound less bass, more airy soundstage but a rather forward/intimate player position compared to the 32 ohm based drivers. RY4S if my memory's correct sounded like EMX500 and Vido school of sound (big closed headphone-like sound)

    but this is all my wild guess, i could be (horribly) wrong

    I'd say they're more-like open headphones - being more akin to closed when you cover the rear vents.

    WOW... one doesn't need to spend a lot for good earbuds. Are these the new sub$10 champion?

    Definitely burn in helps as these are Dynamic drivers, put in at least 50 hours
