Earbuds Round-Up

  1. Chris674
    The Kube is great! I'd buy that and be happy. It's certainly a unique sounding earbud. Someone in another forum
    asked about a comparison between that Vido and the FAAEAL Rosemary. After some listening between them I'd say that would be a nice upgrade. They have VERY similar signatures but the Rosemary is more refined in every way. Soundstage is not as wide but instrument separation is excellent and the grain in the Vidos mid-range and treble is no where to be found (even though that's one of the things I like about the Vido.) They are 150 ohm drivers though and they really need that power. If the source isn't up to it they become bloated in the lower mid-range with NO treble.

    When I asked the seller about the Sabia a few weeks back he mentioned that this cable was a real special upgrade that really improved the sound. I did spend a couple of minutes thinking about the mmcx option but I think we all made the right choice.

    The $16 760 are fine (you will hear various opinions), and the $29 version are great.

    Why didn't you tell me this before they were sold out lol!

    He also told me that he only had a few (I think he said six) and that some he was going to mod with the cable and some mmcx. I stalked his listening multiple times a day waiting for them. I figured I'd wait until I secured my own set. Lol.

    Whichever new cabled one you get, there was some feedback and testing with the local group/community there so it's a safe bet either way.
    I always treat connectors with Caig DeOxit D5 anyhow ( even available in small cheaper "wipes" pad form if someone wants to try it out, but the stuff is invaluable) and unless one goes crazy swapping out all the time likely not an issue.

    760 is better than MX500 from NICEHCK in sound quality? Thumping Bass and Smooth sound?

    I don't know why those say 760 in the description. Those are not mx760 shells. They are Beyerdynamic DP100 shells..with grahene drivers inside of course.

    I have an LG V20 so that'll trip the high impedance mode for sure. Has had no trouble with 150ohm buds in the past. Might get that and @seanc6441's recommendation, I'd like to try both but maybe the Rosemary can give a bit more oomph! Thanks!

    The Rosemary is very good. All of my Faaeals are. Actually most of my buds are. Tonight I am enjoying the Sony MH300 that my husband @HungryPanda recabled for me.

    Is it significally upgrade from SL+ commemorative to SL 64ohm balanced 2,5 using Radsone ES100?
    Maybe Rosemary will be better choice ?
