Well most my packages won't ship, already started 2 disputes, waiting on the 3rd, seems only penon has shipped but soon it will meet with Ukrainian thieves/postal service, it's a 50/50 chance from there, I have lost 6 out of 9 packages through our lovely postal service that always tell the sellers items were all ready picked up by myself, then tell me it was "lost in the system" it isn't right, if I specifically payed for DHL shipping why do they send with 4px?

I just got a shipment cancelled notification on one of my 11:11 items, contacted seller and got the old "item lost in standard aliexpress shipping" then " is it okay to send free replacement?"

I guess it's my first and last time shopping on 11.11, don't really see much point in trying it again, I would like to say, Ak audio store seems legit, they shipped 37 minutes after I ordered, and penon is great if you live in a safe country and don't need secure shipping

I have only lost 1 item in several years, it arrived in my country and then never made it through customs.

He might be willing to do a swap for you, he did for me but my tm9 started rattling on the left side just when the yin was ready.
But I like the TM9 and want to keep it to see how it matures with age like a fine piece of wine I know earbuds need a lot of burning in.

Me too. It wasn't a cheap order either. Took ages to sort out. Arrived at Heathrow then disappeared into a black hole.

Trouble is I knew it was from Singapore but could not remember what it was as I got so many orders over that month

I order from AK all the time. Shipping can be a bit slow, but so far they have have been a great company. NiceHCK(my personal favorite) is a usually shipped out same day and Jim is always pretty quick to respond to questions.
Anyway, I have ordered stuff off ebay and payed for different shipping and received from different shipping then I paid for. Its either A. an honest mistake or an oversight or B. they gouged you for more money and went with cheaper option.

Anyway good luck. Postal here in the US is pretty horrible imo, but not because of stealing. The just seem to always deliver everyones mail to different places all over the neighborhood. Like all they hire now is effing illiterate morons that just stick whatever into wherever. LOL its very common to see people walking around our neighborhood with handfuls of other peoples mail, trying to deliver it. ridiculous :)

I had a good afternoon, recabled 2 Sony MDR-E808+, 1 Sony Ericsson HPM-64, 1 DIY PK2 SR2 PRO 16ohm and created from scratch an earbud using EMX500 drivers (I'm calling it a HungryPanda DIY EMX500)
Everyone should have it's own EMX500 DIY :)

Just received today both my MPS 3.5mm plugs and high quality silver and copper plated cables. Just need to wait for my transparent heatshrinks to let the fun begin.. :)

@jogawag I have a new cable on that DIY PK1 PK2 SR2 16 ohm bud that you recommended back in August. The one with the really stiff cable. I had burned it in but then did not use it much because of the cable being uncomfortably stiff. Yesterday my husband @HungryPanda removed that cable... pictured below. Look how out of control it is... lol. He then attached the cable shown in the second photo. Nice and soft and neat and sounds great. He has the version coming that has that TPE cable that you later suggested.

Sweet! It's a good think you're on the other side of the planet, otherwise I'd be buying you beers and trying to get you to do some recabling for me!

:beerchug: <--- p.s. I'd buy you a bigger beer than that lol

I mean, blox spent how long developing the tm9 and they whip up a new Yin earbud in mere weeks-months?
I'm willing to give Blox the benefit of the doubt and presume that Yin was already being developed in parallel with (but trailing) the TM9.

Beer and recabling don't mix very well :hammer:
