    I only wrote a short sentence and added a photograph so the first post is certainly not mine

    Hey, I'm looking for earbuds under 14$ with good detail, soundstage, and separation. Got any recommendations? Thanks

    Now I heard what all the fuss is all about.

    ^ Donut foams sound better :)

    At least remove the funky colored foams that the ANN arrived with! I changed mine to a normal grey on my copper cabled pair and black on my black cabled pair:)

    I normally cannot use donuts as they never stay in place for me but I have finally been forced to with the Dunu Alpha 1. @HungryPanda and I each bought a pair when someone mentioned them recently. We had to... they were £29 on Amazon UK. There were only three available. I wonder who bought the third one that night... or maybe it was the next day, but it was gone. They were sold by Hifiheadphones which is a good UK audio company fulfilled by Amazon. There is one now for that price but it is a newly launched seller with no feedback.

    Neither of us was able to use any of the wings and rings. Just donuts. I need to figure out where to cut an opening in a full foam so I can have it stay on more securely. I have to try to maneuver the donut back into place each time I wear it. They are borderline too big for my ears. But.... the SOUND!

    In this photo you can see how one of the donuts has shifted... and this is AFTER I have tried to fix it.

    That was me.
    What do you think?

    Are those SR 2 16ohm's with the straight jack okay to buy or is it just the curved jack which is good? I was looking for a bargain earbud to try in a PK shell so they seem like a good fit.

    I doubt the shape of the plug will make a difference to the sound. FWIW I have the straight plug with red cable and they are great.

    I remember you saying that you had a strange pulsing sound on some tracks with your Dunu Alpha 1 but I have not heard that. Could you suggest a track for me to listen to so I can try to hear what you are talking about? I still am within the return window with these so I would like to know if there is a problem. They have been sounding great to me but I have not spent a lot of time with them. I did burn them in for a few days though.

    Too many others to listen to like the Indonesian buds that arrived the other day. Really liking the Moondrop Shiro-Yuki... can listen for hours.

    Ah, when you wrote "But.... the SOUND!" I assumed there was something specific (good or bad) that you thought about them.

    I'll try to identify a track that causes mine problems.

    Good! For many tracks I feel the same.
