Using my new Impact Audio Cables (Custom 4-ft 4-strand Type 6 Copper Litz Balanced Eidolic 2.5mm TRRS Plug -to- Eidolic MMCX) cable, and enjoying my Homemade Beryllium 600-Ω, Earbuds w/Metal housing.

Could you show us the set (cables + buds)?

Wow, what a fantastic earbud album!

Seems like it's purpose-built for the Monk Lite SPC this morning :) Could use more sub-bass, so bit the bullet and did a thing:

Mmmm that's better. Makes the mids the slightest bit syrupy/thick, but in a musical way that really helps make up for the FR shortcomings of this earbud. So far, this is probably the more coherent signature. Treble is fantastic. Has a tendency to sparkle, but for the most part stays very tame. Stuff like piano and strings sound phenomenal on these.

Around 20 buds here and still counting...
Two sidegrades have just been ordered (HP150 and FC150C) among some more stuff for DIY... It (almost) never stops.

To think I must have gotten it off easy (so far) with a small handful. Definitely counting my blessings :)


Before you mention it, yep, one of those wire runs has a snip through it. Oops. Hope those other cables show up soon.

Don't know how he does it, but Mr. James does stuff in the stereo space that defies the laws of (recording) physics. I'm sure this waveform is pretty popular by now:

No, that's not a photoshop. Yes, it's mildly creepy. He's still a genius for figuring out how to do that in the first place.

I don't know what you are talking about??? All I see above is a simple waveform like this:

Looks like the Daiso in California does not carry them nor can you order them from their online shop. The lack of a strong earbud culture in the USA 🇺🇸 strikes again!
On the brights side, my VE Zen Lite have cleared customs and they are in California \m/
When I was a child and traveling with my grandfather, as we approached our destination he would always say “what did the dog say after its tail was docked?” Dog: ”It won’t be long now.”

Oh my.

M2s sounds like a veritable behemoth at the moment. Using the Line Out from my Monolith THX 788 to feed the B4-X. Still on the stock drivers and stock tuning filters. These guys just love tubes and metal and right now they're chewing through Dream Theater's A Dramatic Turn of Events. Will have to give them some proper Portnoy to chew on later, but this is one punchy combo. Decent amount of wind behind the kick, too. That cello on Far From Heaven is bone-chilling.
