Came across measurments of a pair of Rose Mojito made on a GRAS 45-CA... Is the legend really up to its reputation? At least I guess no one could call them dark :)
nice find but those df compensated graphs don't look right -- they're obviously raw

This is an RF graph I found when I used to have a Rose Mjito.
The highs and lows don't seem to measure up to the extremes.
How is this measured? It might not be incompatible with the measurments I linked.

Yes I also think compensation error is a possibility here. But the raw is in light gray on the first graph and the impedance vs frequency suggests an intense high frequencies boost as well. If it really souds like this it's unlistanable: what do people who actually heard them think of it? For the moment I'would stick with the compensation error hypothesis even though this blog is usually very reliable.

Rose Maria2 is coming out and it can be considered as an improved version of the first one in the mid and low range.
The shell seems to be all metal and even heavier.

The source is as follows

Saw these on that page and am somewhat intrigued, would I just need to pick up a cable for these? https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000131213791.html?spm=a2g0o.cart.0.0.1e8b3c003fBmqg&mp=1

Is their stuff usually pretty solid?


Anyone have a take on these or a cable recommendation?

Really new to this stuff, but knowing how well the apple earbuds have done for me I feel like this would be a solid base assuming the specs are right. They list the brand as Leagginal but I can't find too much about them.


Saw these as well, planning on going with them unless there is something I am missing that stands out to you guys

https://www.aliexpress.com/item/400...0o.store_home.smartJustForYou_2000020839078.7

I talked to the store and they said these have different drivers that the ones I linked before, but I really don't know what I should be looking for.

Sorry again, just feel like I am jumping into the deep end learning about this stuff and don't wanna end up with 100 pairs before I know what i'm doing.

Toneking tp16

opened up the tp16 just now. Haven't given them a listen quite yet but I'm already impressed with the value you get at $13. Cable has low memory retention. A welcome nod to quality compared to the cable on the Monk Lite 120ohm. That cable retain all the kinks from packaging for a long time. It will take a while to straighten out. Annoying. I also love that Toneking provides 12 foams, nice touch.

Must buy for me. Mojitos are my favourite audio monitors period, full size headphones included.
Wasn't aware there was a Maria 2, here I was thinking of saving up for and crying at my burnt $$$$ on a maria 1.

I've got a masya coming that I should really settle for though, must be conscious of savings for the year given the state of the world.

Your graph is much more believable than the one in the link.

About: Yincrow RW-9 and Yincrow X6

After owning and listening to both the X6 and RW-9 for over 6 months, I can say that I find the RW-9 more revealing and more extended with plenty of details on both ends. Don't get me wrong, the X6 are a lot of fun to listen to with plenty of bass to go around, but the RW-9 just takes details and overall soundstage to another level. Now, even though the bass is not as fast or louder than the X6, in my opinion is because the RW-9's sub-bass plays on a sweeter level with more convincing texture and rumble. Here in China, the RW-9 is doing very well with sales with plenty to go around, especially in taobao. So, it's odd to me that the RW-9's are fading away anytime soon. But, if it's fading overseas do to lack of demand, I suggest everyone here should really jump on a pair, before they become really hard to get.

FAAEAL Snow Lotus 1.0+ Blue CE (64 ohms)

This is my first earbud since using Apple earbuds roughly 8 or so years ago. I'm seriously impressed by the quality of sound that comes of this $12 bud. The treble was initially piercing and the bass a bit weak, through throwing on a set of full foams tamed the highs and boosted the lows for a relatively balanced sound. To my ear (vs HD650s and ER4XRs), it comes off as being slightly warm with a minor boost in the upper mids (which make female vocals pop). All things considered, I'm very impressed for the cost especially with how relatively tame the tuning is vs IEMs in a similar price bracket (KZ IEMs looking at you).

I am definitely looking forward to trying new buds. If anyone has any other suggestion for mid focused buds with decent bass, I'm all ears! I'm currently considering the: Penon Audio EA buds as well as the Smabat ST-10S gold.
