Darn it. Been reading through this thread and now I am buying, buying, buying. Having a great time trying different buds though. Forgot how much I liked good sounding bargain buds since picking up the Monk OG way back (which I still have and use). Right now I like Vido for the bass and headroom, and Qian 39 for the amazing detail. Thanks to everyone who participates on this thread, and keep the recommendations coming!
