Earbuds Round-Up

    Good point. I'm going to put all my effort into fitting the double foams. Packing tape left on there for years will most likely ruin the finish. They ARE like jewelry, I agree. Photos don't do them justice.

    I was kind of surprised to find them so slippery. I have a couple of shiny plastic buds that don't cause the foams to slip...although, when I am wiggling around any bud to get it seated properly, donut foams will shift every time for me. I can only use a donut if it is on top of a full foam... luckily I have only needed to do that on a couple of models... can't remember which ones at the moment.

    VE sells the silicone rings in their $5 foam add on packs iirc.

    Try hiegi donut foams from the VE ex pack, really thick and dense, great for bigger ears if seal is the issue. In my opinion the play well with pk shell earbuds and really help to seal but keep the middle relatively open so you dont lose too much clarity.

    For me 1 full foam usually gives the best seal because my ears are on the smaller side but I can see how double foams helps for some people.

    Actually they are there with Prime/ fulfilled by Amazon if you scroll down and click on the second frequently bought together option that says wx-spc12-b for a cheaper $6.39 :)

    That is weird that the Chinese option came up first.

    Ordered! Arrives tomorrow. They're the full foams, which is actually good because I'm treble sensitive. Thanks!

    Dear All,

    I have been reading this thread for quite some days, and there are 3000 pages!

    Recently into Hi-Fi music, I have HiFiMan He400i and VE Zen. I pair them with Sabaj DA3. As I read and also felt (little bit) that Sabaj DA3 does not do justice with the headphones. With that I have ordered Drop THX AAA 789 (coming to me in Feb/Mar 2020)

    I normally listen to Bollywood music and am looking for a earbud that can enhance my listening experience like instrument separation/placement, clarity, etc. Not a Bass head but decent bass is ok with me.

    Even after reading so much on this thread I couldn't make up my mind on what earbuds I should try. I am looking for two pairs, one which goes with my normal Android phone and 2nd which pairs well with the AMP I have purchased.

    Appreciate if anyone can help me, enlighten me.

    Regards,

    Amit

    A really kind member messaged me about using silicone plumbers tape and one thick foam. I'm going to try that, and update with the results. I really love these already, so if there isn't any significant advantage I'm just going to use them as is. They're really incredible in clarity and musicality already.

    Never stopped you before :wink:
    I've done it but it's not always successful in improving the seal. I really think you should try out the VE thick donuts from the VE expack. My mistake earlier I called them hiegi donuts, those are different and not as sealing IMO. Get the VE ex pack for its thick donuts instead of hiegis!

    Hiegi donuts still have their time and place but if I ever need a thick donut foam for pk shells I always choose VE expack donuts first. They are almost bowl shaped (they have more of a structure than most foams thanks to the dense foam used).

    Compared to full foams you will get a slightly more clear midrange and the imaging is more centered because of this but the seal is the important factor here so if it seals better for you the bass response will be improved over full foams.
