How about ask him if there's something wrong with the production or ask them to test before packaging.
I agree, I'm sure he would rather know there are problems so he can fix them.

The driver failed unexpectedly. My unit came with a huge dent on the chin slider and some marks on the right driver.
Didn't think much of them, but maybe these were telltale signs that the they are already defective in the first place.

Now I'm just waiting for Jim to provide the return address so I can mail it back to him for a replacement. I think I'll also drop a note to inform him to inspect the condition of the earbuds too before shipping the new one to me.

Hello.

I write a little review of NiceHCK EB2. I hope you like it.
The pity is that my camera is in the technical service and is still not fixed. I did not want to take photos with my cell phone.
I hope you forgive me if I have not expressed myself correctly in English, my native language is Spanish.

Not many compared to last year... Nicehck ebx is a decent enough price i guess, think it was less last time though.

Other sellers have raised rrp as a false sense of price drop.... Very devious practise!

If anyone else finds any lets post here, together we can find something with a great deal im sure :)

Have not seen many great deals on earbuds. **** PT25 for $22, EB2 at $22, EBX for $79. There are a lot of really good deals on iems and headphones though.

I think there are deals on and off throughout the year and that 11:11 is not that special overall. It is not necessarily your one and only chance to get a good price on something.

Last year it was reallygood though. $50+ off the black ling, k's samsara, ebx. There was atleast 10 good deals to be made.

But there have been good deals at other times than 11.11 so you have a point.

FYI to all, use a google chrome extension to check aliexpress prices presale and see if they were bumped or not. Don't be caught out by sneaky sellers (even some of the more respected sellers mentioned a lot on here are doing it...)

The mysound has much deeper bass even when used without foams while retaining acceptable clarity and soundstage imo.

Please let me know if you like them when you get them. For 5 pounds, I won't feel too bad if you hate them :sweat_smile:
I have been listening to these Meliconi Mysound Speak Flat buds for hours this evening... I think I am on my sixth album. Very addictive sound. They arrived Sunday and I have been either listening with them or burning them in ever since. At first I was unsure. I ended up putting on foams to make them stable in my ears...as I do with almost all of my buds.

There was still 1 more open box one left on Amazon Uk for £5.54. I ordered it just now. Both of mine are grey. None of the other colors had them this cheap. I think I would have chosen the grey anyway. They want £13 for the new in the box ones so I will have two for less than that. I wanted a spare in case the cable breaks.

How's RY4S compared to Svara L?
Honestly, I'm not very good at expressing my bud comparison thoughts. But if @DBaldock9 doesn't step to the plate, I will do my best!
Well, both earbuds have really good low Bass - with the Svara-L seeming to resolve Bass details a bit more clearly.
And, the Svara-L has a bit more Midrange, with a bigger, more open Sound Stage.

For my ears, the size and shape of the Svara-L is a bit more comfortable than the MX500 shell of the RY4S.
But, they are 5x more expensive ($10 vs. $54).

I presume you are talking about the RY4S UE? The stock RY4S is about $5.
