    To be clear, I love them both. But the RW-9's have been captivating me lately.

    I too do not enjoy the lite versions of the VE earbuds as well. If I have to choose and live with them, only the bundled Zen LL and Monk Lite 120ohms are good.

    It's also odd for me to add that I also prefer then standard versions of the Zen and Asura over their Omega Editions.

    Too bad I don't get to enjoy that kind of luxury... In fact the item was shipped 2 days ago, but tracking is still not reflected on Pos Indonesia... :sweat_smile:

    Those 120's are quite good aren't they!

    Yes! Those are pretty good, especially when you got the cheaper "limited" versions with the white cable.

    I supposed the more expensive SPC version should sound better? Since I like how standard Asura 2.0s sound with the same SPC cable.
    Aside from the yellowing of the cables near the shells and stiffness that's less manageable.

    Do you prefer them to the Sabia V6?

    That is the price I got ...same link. Looking forward to receiving them.

    Yes, that's the one that I have. They like a little juice, and they sound great off of a good amp.

    Asking me which I prefer is like asking which of my kids I love the most lol.

    The Sabia V6's have a more V-shaped signature, and the bass is epic, and I love them for electronic music. The RW-9's are more U or W-shaped and more "balanced", and for rock or vocal oriented music where more presence in the mids is a benefit, the RW-9's sound amazing.

    In summary, I love all of my kids :)

    RW9. Which colour though? :)

    I do like red, but also blue.

    Ok I got these tianderenhe wooden buds home and let them burn in overnight, initial impressions were way tooo sibilant for me to listen to, after burn in its better but still not really for me.

    I stuffed the ports at the back with a little bit of muji cotton, this definitely tamed the highs a bit but these things have like 0 bass to my ears. I also tried putting scotch tape over the port with cotton in and that sounded horrible, even thinner sound.

    It doesn’t sound bad, but currently snares/vocals are very shouty and overall sound is kind of thin with the lack of bass. Tried stock DM6 cable and Fiio 2.5mm cable, settled with my lz copper 2.5mm but tbh they didn’t make much of a difference. Listened to them through my Jotunheim multibit and hiby r6 (**EDIT** sounds way better with some bass heavier sources FiiO q5 bass boosted + Allen heath xone 43 lows cranked up both amped with my jot but still meh for me). Test track was D’evils by SiR.

    Hope that helps anyone who was also looking at these. And if anyone has any mods I could try without opening these (I’m sure they’re glued to hell) would be greatly appreciated :)

    Ok... if one of your children was RW-9 and another was R4YS... which one would get to choose the dessert for tonight?

    :wink:

    Poor Little Billy (RY4S) was definitely the dessert flavor of the month a few months ago, but has been feeling a bit neglected lately. No fault of Little Billy! I'm going to have to pay that child some more attention...
