Let Down is a great track to test the mids detail of earphones. if you can hear what Thom's saying, then the earphones have good mids
I just checked that out, and you are most correct! Btw, the RY4S's have good mids :)

Use the search function Chinmie gave some very positive impressions on the 600 awhile back.

- Daddy, why do you need so many earbuds?

- Ummm...errrr.. Well, mom is clumsy and when she breaks her earbuds, I'll give her one of these.

- But she hasn't broken her buds yet.

- Go do your homework.

-------------------------------------------------

In other news, of course I couldn't resist ordering those gorgeous RY4S in red for only $4. Thanx for the tip about the UE cable, waynes world. If these turn out to be notably inferior to Snow Lotus 1.0+ and EMX500s there's always another sale at Ali.

Snow Lotus are breaking in rather nicely. They share the warm and impactful sound signature with EMX500s, but they present music in a more speaker-like way, as if you are listening from a couple of rows in the back. It's very relaxing and musical, plus they manage to pull out more details and stronger holographic (?) effects.

With EMX, the feel is more intimate, like you are inside music. The sound is a bit fuller, but also more left to right.

These buds complement each other very well and they both react nicely to EQ, crosfeed, Haas surround and other Rockbox witchery.

They have a few yuin shell buds already. One is a TOTL (i think nightingale?) And the bunting.

But he is releasing new buds almost as regularly as Blur.

Euphoric. Some of the most clear and perfectly positioned vocal earbuds in it's price range. Yes it's forward but with nice space around it. It's a little bright in the upper mids but the mutli hole custom foams really balance it out at the expense of some air. Treble is clear and the response isn't linear but curved in a very musical way with sparkle.

Might sound it's best on a fuller source to really bring out some weight in the lower frequencies.
I have heard the Masya. My husband has it and I borrowed it one night. I loved it but he would not let me keep it!
mbwilson111 seanc6441 You are right, Rose Masya it's a really good earbud. I think it will be better (scale up) when a got a better source. But by now I also received the EB2 and It's better on Fiio M3.

Tks a lot :ksc75smile:

There are recent report of BK sounding very veil in China as well, and the suspected culprit is either faulty or even fake driver being used (*not unheard of for people to swap out real driver with cheap stuff then resold the earphone as real stuff for a high price, then resold the driver as real replacement for more money). I have heard story from one of the well known earbuds maker that people swapped out driver and sent it back for repair hoping it will be replaced with the real one. Not saying this will be the case here, but it is best to get your more expensive earbuds from a trusted retailer.
Yea, I don't know. I might risk it later, but I've learned to lower my expectations.

I've read reviews where Cygnus is better than BK. Where BK is declared to be the best earbud ever, etc...

I wonder why Sennheiser get out of the earbud business? MX985s are still regarded to be one of the best. I had a chance to buy MX980 years ago. I wish I had.

For me the source OI is the important factor. It will completey transform the sound of the masya from bright and lean to balanced and smooth.

But too much and the sound will become muddy. I think 3-4ohm is just right. 5 ohm will be thicker sounding and 1ohm will be very thin.

I have read similar reviews, and not just recently either...then I read a lot of reviews say that the Willsound PK32 is better than the Cygnus, but less good than the PK32...so in the end everyone's taste seems a little different, no clear winner, they all do things a little different.
