    I think those are from Ryo Chandra Lesmana, he makes some really cool looking stuff. Check him out on facebook! I have no idea how they sound but I'm tempted to buy something from him just for the looks, I know exactly how I'd want them painted.

    Hi guys, I am kind of dumb I guess. I have been looking for some nice "intra-concha" (image) for quite some time for my mobile, since I cannot stand the modern earbuds (last option I tried was the Massdrop x Nuforce EDC and like the others they dont fit into my tiny tiny ears and they end up falling out).

    I have been browsing the last 10 pages of this thread and I ended up finding the Yincrow RW-777. What do you think about them? What other options do I have between $30-$70 (only intra-concha, no earbuds, please).

    Fixed that for you!

    You are in the right place. I also have issues with iems, and earbuds are a godsend.

    What kind of sound signature interests you?

    I am new to this and I don't have the knowledge to explain it. If this can be of any guidance, I mostly listen to electronic music, hip-hop and rock. I got 2 entry-level headphones about 6 months ago, the Hifiman HE4xx and the DT770 Pro 250 Ohms and I prefer the Hifiman. I think the hifiman are just more fun for the kind of music I listen to. I really really like the DT770 Pro too, they are really comfortable and the sound is really detailed. Another thing: now that I think about it, I don't like headphones that add too much bass, I really enjoy listening to cristal clear details in the music. I hope that helps. Thanks for the help!

    Below you price range, the Qian 39 is tiny, in terms of shell diameter, and for me the best fit of any earbud. The sound is pretty good too!

    Check out the Yincrow RW-9. One of my favorite earbuds!

    Thanks for the advice, but allow me to be ignorant here. These are pretty cheap options (not in quality, I mean in price). Since I'm willing to spend up until $70, wouldn't I find much better options or are there no significant differences?

    You needn't worry about too much bass, earbuds don't really exceed neutral sub bass ever and only mid bass will be elevated on some units. Generally most earbuds are less bassy than their IEM or full size counter parts because of their open design/non sealing front volume.

    For that reason I don't think you should dismiss earbuds classed as 'bassy' especially for the genres you mention. Because earbuds so roll off in the sub bass anyway. Most bass earbuds have mid bass emphasis and a slowly rolled off sub bass, other less bassy earbuds have excessive roll off below 100hz.

    $30 (+ shipping) Willsound MK2 (you can opt for an MMCX version). Slightly mid bassy with good sub bass extension, good for modern music and has good detail and clear neutral highs.


    It's a good starter earbud coming from IEMs as it performs well all round excelling in dynamics and good for EDM/pop and rock music.

    I even modded mine to clean up the bass further, but thats an optional, advanced mod. It sounds very good stock too.

    For hip hop, neo soul, and rnb, I currently am always reaching for the Sabia V6 pearl and Willsound mk2 with VJC cable. Both provide a nice bass thump with vocal clarity in my opinion and are under your budget.
