while I really think that it is a good and sane idea, the importing fees are really high here in Sweden, which makes buying cheap earbuds a bit of a poor value proposition... if I don't end up liking it, that is, of course. also, I really don't like making small purchases if I can spend a little bit more to get something that I will be more satisfied with at once... sorry if I'm being very picky/difficult - I don't intend to be annoying just trying to not have to go through so much of a journey with audio, as I feel like I have spent far too much time in the hobby, and I also feel like I know what kind of sound I enjoy and would like to pursue. it's just really hard to get a good view of what these things sound like, as you probably know, you yourself I wouldn't mind a VIDO that sounded more hi-fi and maybe a touch less mid-bass, and perhaps a little more polite treble - if that is of any help, as a reference point for earbuds. or Shozy BK with a touch less upper mid-range. ahh. hmm. I've only heard good things about the Fred earbuds... strange name, but also cute. these don't have detachable cables either unfortunately. but you would agree that the TO600 is not sibilant/harsh/too bright, right? no peaks or anything? okay that makes sense, so the imaging isn't going to be up there with full-size headphones - kind of like how headphones can't match speaker imaging, I suppose? --- thank you again everyone!!
