Because we live in the same crazy country :wink:
I bought my pair 2 years ago for around $17 and shipping is of course free.
If I were to buy a new pair, given that I know what they are like, I could give $25- $30 but no more than that.
Maybe just maybe our postal service is at fault for inflated shipping prices. You can google it. If you change the country , shipping is usually free. I tried messaging CKLewis store about changing shipping method, but they are slow to respond and look uninterested. (Fengru tingo tc200 is on cklewis store).

Thanks for your insight! I will look at the suggestions. I am looking more for a bud shape PK/MX500 ish type. I will check out the Onyx, Vivo, and TRN. TRN would be great if it had touch controls, it may I just need to look, it still is the hook ear which is kinda what I am doing with my Qudelix right now with a short cable clipped to my ballcap. Appriciate the direction. It was just $43 for the Soundpeats Trueair 2 and Mii Air 2 combined so to me it's worth exploring. I've spent more on earbud drivers I never use lol.

You could do what I did and modify some TWS with earbud drivers. The Sabbat X12's will work with 14.8mm drivers.

I know all of that, are customs and postal service are the main culprits for this situation and not Ali. This is not the place to talk about it, you have more information on our blogs. Overall, I think this problem will last longer than a pandemic.
Penon Audio Store is the only place where you can order buds with free shipping.
I ordered a pair of buds 14.05.2021, they send it 18.05 from Hong Kong to Serbia and the package arrived at our customs on 29.05 and still stands there.

You have been posting pictures of these TWS earbuds several times already, and it is strange that Sabbat did not contact you to buy your idea or to include you in the RnD team on the development of a new model.

No. I have ordered from them before, probably 5-6 times and all deliveries took very slow between 1-3 months. This is the fastest that has arrived so far but the customs is holding things back

I've been itching to try this from the first time you ever posted this idea, but haven't found a modder that can do this yet :grin:

The more I listen to the Faaeal Iris 2.0, the more I like it as well. I’ve got to find a way to get more objective data on ear buds. What I’m learning in switching back and forth is that this stuff is unusually challenging. Fat more so than I thought it would be and I didn’t think it would be easy. There’s got to be a good way to keep me honest that doesn’t cost too much.

There are only two (2) brave and skilled enough to do this and have any chance of success: @assassin10000 and @ClieOS 🤘
