Earbuds Round-Up

  1. exavolt
    For symmetric plastic shells, I usually chipped a bit one of the buds using art knife just enough for my fingers to feel. It's the best side identification method for me. I don't need to look at the buds, and the method really shines in the dark.

    The real Tingo TC200 (which is shown in that image that you've included in your post, and is also seen in the TC200 review here in head-fi) is already discontinued.

    Now there are online stores that sell the "TC200" but is using the TG-38S shells (chrome). I can't recall where I read it (probably buried somewhere in this thread) but what Tingo was saying was that after they had discontinued the TC200, the remaining cables they had for it were used in their TG-38S line so that might have been where some online stores started labelling the TG-38S as the TC200 because the cables had TC200 laser-etched on the splitter section.

    There's even an online store that sells the "TC300" which is basically the TG-38S shell with a different cable. >_<

    Same here.

    Same here lol.

    I always lean towards black foams. Or white as the second choice. The red/blue always seem lesser somehow.

    I think this is another case of different results with different ears. Adding foams allow the drivers to be further into my ear. With no foams most buds either slide around or fall out of my ear. Foams stabilize them so that I can tuck a good bit of it under the tragus which , in my case, holds them firmly in place and as far in as a bud could go. Maybe this is why any decent bud sounds really good to me...with foams.

    I only have one bud where I used the red/blue combo.. the clear Monk plus. It just seemed fitting to do it on those. Otherwise I like the two sides to match. I have other ways to help tell right from left. Usually I just use black or white or grey.... but sometimes I like to have a little more fun...

    These buds arrived today along with my husband's blue Kube. We did not notice that there was another tiny little package until he was leaving for work. That one contained my colorful foams that we ordered weeks ago. Just in time!

    Does anyone know about good thin and cheap and colorful foams?
    I know about these black recommended here: https://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/cWedNvpr
    But I prefer to have happy colors on my buds rather than black :)

    I didn't mean for every earbud, just in this particular case.

    Although the theory remains the same for any of these earbuds, the closer the driver sits to the ear the more emphasis on low frequency. But obviously having no seal also reduces bass.

    So the end result is tighter(lesser) bass emphasis, but more emphasis on low mids which makes them sound fuller.

    Mine were ordered from this link. Took about two weeks to reach me here in the UK. I ordered a pack each of purple. rose, and pink. The ones in the photo above are the purple and the rose. The pink is lighter and I have not decided yet what to use them on. I do have a pink bud coming that I ordered just for the color.. if it does not sound good it will be a donor shell for a project.

    I like mixing up the colours. i.e. red and blue, black and and white. Red=right and white=right. Easy to work out which one is left and right :darthsmile:

    If you're looking for pink earbuds, Audio Technica has one:


    Don't know about availability in the UK, but cdJapan has them.

    It make me feel unsymmetrical. I don't like that feeling:)

    Like I said... there are other ways...

    I have these actually thanks, but they are quite dense (as shown in the product picture). I wanted something thinner to have more options of sound and fit fine tuning.

    mbwilson those black Fareal are those the pre-monk "Bug Guys" ones, with the metal plug end outer ?
    That's a great idea to put a red marking at the bottom also.

    Yes, those are the pre-monk Fareals. I have not had a chance to listen to them or the purple Kube other than to make sure they work and set them to burn in a bit...good that I have multiple daps:) I have been listening to the Kube 2.0 that arrived yesterday.

    Waiting for the orange Kube that I ordered after the purple one.
