    Been listening to my Blox YIN yesterday night and enjoyed it a lot again :) still in my top earbuds
    There is something magical on these

    From what I have heard, SL 1.0+ is slightly more V or U -shaped than regular 1.0 and soundstage on 1.0+ is bigger than on regular 1.0.

    I only have regular 1.0 but I'm liking it.

    My K's 64s are my work buds and currently enjoying my Bandcamp collection with them on my Samsung S8.

    Two years ago I got the silver cable version of the K's 64. The cable is freakishling long - and the sound muddy and bland compared to my other earbuds. Maybe I got a bad copy?

    I agree with your first point but not your second.
    Happy to hear you like the 1.0, though. It's still one of my favourites.

    You are better at comparing them as you have both, I only have the other one.

    I find regular 1.0 a sweet spot for me: it is not too bright, vocals are not recessed, bass is not boomy but it is there when needed. There could be little more sub bass but usually then sound signature gets more U-shaped.

    Yes, I find it very well balanced and natural sounding. 'Sweet spot' is a good way of putting it. With some phones I find myself analysing the details (good and bad). With these I just get lost in the music.

    Hello everyone. I spent years and a small fortune searching for the perfect IEM, only to end up with an earbud that I love more than any IEM I've ever heard! Now the new search begins I suppose. My earbud journey originally ended in the early 90's, so I was completely shocked when I heard the Moondrop VX Pro for the first time. All I really want so far to improve on is bass quantity, if even only slightly. My question for anyone who can answer is, how does the K's White Ling or the HiFi Boy Dream compare to the VX Pro? I'm looking for a mostly balanced, but airy sound with good bass and sub bass. Full disclosure, I've already made a blind purchase of both. Just would love any opinions while waiting a couple weeks for them to arrive.

    For me Zen2.0 much better than Zen L.
    And Zen LL better than Zen L.
    Asuras have other sigs

    Willy was nice enough to send a preview:


    The red one is WillSound MK1 and the white is MK2. I'm really stoked to get these!

    Yeah, he knows his stuff.

    He also warned me about putting the grills of the ZoomFred against eachother, since the magnets are stronger than what he normally use. If the magnets are exposed to too strong magnetic attraction, they might become displaced (as far as I understand it).

    Looking forward to reading more of your impressions on your ZoomFred Pro.

    JVC Victor cable is awful. Docomo buds have the same kind of cable but it's significantly longer so much easier to deal with. Getting the JVC Victors sent off for recabling tomorrow!

    I feel left out. All these new cool budget earbuds that I can't buy since I don't want to pay import taxes and customs fees at around $7-8 for a pair of earbuds that cost roghly the same...

    Lately I've been rocking the ol' Tomahawk earbuds with some crunchy metal from my Questyle QP1R.

    I have the Zen LL and love it. It is one of only a few buds that I have with a balanced cable. I had the Zen Lite (bought used). Traded with my husband for the LL...because he has more serious amps.

    I don't have nor have I heard any of the others. I personally will not spend that much for any bud. Too fragile plus I am having too much fun with inexpensive ones like the Kube, the Faaeals, and others...especially the ones my husband @HungryPanda has been making.

    I think he had made ten for me so far. :). He has also recabled several others.
