Earbuds Round-Up

  1. ClieOS Contributor
    Just a slight update: for those of you who might be waiting for K's Titanium Ling deal on 11.11 - it has been delayed due to factory sending K's the wrong part. Lastest estimated puts it around late November. On the brighter side, the cheaper "Little Black Ling" is almost ready.

    Yeah, that's poor form, but I guess not much different from local stores having perpetual sales with the higher price only being applied for one week in the year! Any real bargains should be posted up here, if anyone finds some.

    Unless a real deal is on, I was going to buy the RY4S and an EMXS500 anyway. Still tempted with the Svara-L, but no real sale price, plus I probably have a bunch of better sounding buds anyway.

    Received ry4x and Ry4s hi-fi cable yesterday.
    Very pleasant sound. Made me think I should order the UE cable version too. Haven't A/B ING them with Emx500s. But from memory Emx500s is more bassy.

    Both are very good, and the EBX seems to be a bit larger - but it isn't.
    I guess it's just the way it sits in the ear, and getting a good seal is a little trickier for me.

    Nooooo...
    I guess it will be the Liebesleid then, it will be on sale too. Around 250$.

    Cool, I'm glad you liked them. I was surprised at how decent (good?) the sound was for a bud I bought just "because it was the cheapest pair with a mic". Unfortunately the mic is a bit crappy but the sound is really good for dirt cheap buds like these (they cost 8€ here, while a Monk costed me around 7€ with shipping), I never would have expected that tbh. Anyway I'm glad you liked them.
    I haven't used foams with these because then they become a bit too dark and bassy (honestly they're the bassiest earbuds I've heard in a long time). The comfort and stability is good for my ears, I don't have any problems using them without foams, but I think they would sound pretty good with donut foams, maybe I'll try cuttins some but I don't have many left and besides I like the sound as-is.
    By the way, do you prefer them to Monk? I prefer them because they have a bit more bass while keeping acceptable clarity, and I find them more comfortable than Monk without foams.

    I will let you know next time I listen to the Monk. I have soooooooooooooo many buds,,,, plus iems and headphones. As for the mic I have no use for one and normally try to avoid buying cables with mics but some things like this one have no such option.

    I have full foams on the Monk as well and maybe find them slightly more comfortable than these. Both are bigger than my smallest buds. I would have to measure but I am thinking that they have a similar diameter but the Mysound has a shape that seems to take up more room.

    I think this Meliconi Mysound Speak Flat does have good bass but like you said it is not just that,,, everything else is good too. They sound BIG... dare I say a bit like headphones?

    What about the mic did you find to be crappy? Personally I am worried that the cable might break in that area. I do not think these would be easy to recable... or even if they can be.

    Hey folks, I have question that may be a bit off-topic but still interests me none-the-less.

    How do you store your earbuds? I'd like to find an efficient way of storing mine. I currently have them in headphone cases, like this one:

    But would like a better solution. I've seen some people store them in the multi-compartment tool boxes, like this one:

    Many of mine came with nice cases that I want to keep. I have bought cases for those that do not come with one. I then needed a place to store them all so I have these zippered bags. I did not expect my collection to grow so much so what started out as two bags has grown. I know need to print out a list of what is in each bag. This photo happens to be of 4 of my 6 IEM bags. I also have 3 bags full of bud cases... I will photograph that at some point. Each iem or bud case has a printed label on it.

    I actually have no place to put one of those plastic containers. I can hide these bags various places. Four of them fit in a storage ottoman (footstool) that is in the living room:) At the moment they are on a rug in front of the fireplace, lol. Waiting for me to print those lists...

    OK. Im in. Bass tubes got me. Also I like AT and $19 is worth a gamble. OOS at Amazon, but ordered from AT direct. Will post impressions when I get them.

    Cool! Yep, Only AT has them so far. $19 shipped is not bad(maybe, we'll see). Will be interested in what you think of them. Was thinking of perhaps getting the BT version if they are overachievers.

    Yes, and if you look at Panda's photos you will see we use a similar system.. except his labeled boxes go into flight cases and mine go into soft toiletry bag. Easier for me to handle. His flight cases are kind of heavy. We really need a bigger house.
