Earbuds Round-Up

    The smallest 2.5mm TRRS plug I've seen, is the one that VE uses on their Espresso cable. I haven't seen a plug that size for sale at any online shops, though.

    Very likely it is injection molded and not something that can be done by DIY.

    It's knurled metal - and slightly smaller than the smallest of the Eidolic 2.5mm TRRS plugs (which is on my Impact Audio Cable).

    It can still be injection molded inside, then put on an outer metal sleeve. It is how small plug are generally made in mass production as tight space doesn't provide good enough (if any) strain relief and injection molding solves that problem.

    Unfortunately, Lindsay at Impact Audio Cables hasn't been taking any new cable orders, since March or April of this year.

    Edit: The three Eidolic connectors (2.5mm TRRS Plug, 2x MMCX), which are used on the Impact Audio Cable that I bought, cost at least $10 each.

    Interesting. Curious to see where the earbud price point will max out (meaning what people are willing to pay).

    I have been thinking on this as well and as long as if new technology and materials come into play along with some neat micro-engineering (as we have seen in IEMs/CIEMs) the price may in fact go higher and justly so. I am waiting for more lighter shell materials to come into play... completely replacing the basic plastic we currently know. Another big event for earbuds will be the next step in bluetooth miniaturization & power which would spill over into ear buds well.

    certain portions the sub bass is a killer. I listened it to with my QT2 it's crazy.
