I am waiting for 11.11…

Yeah that occurred to me but I felt these were already reduced so went ahead. I'll keep an eye on others for 11.11, maybe something from VE or Smabat.

That's indeed @furyossa 's rivet mod applied to the ST10s Black and Gold drivers. It's much better now, i always found Smabat tuning to be thin sounding and fatiguing in the 3-4kzh area. In MX500 shells + Rivet mod it retains the good beefy bass but with a much natural and pleasant presentation.

I have a few guides in the making for both Rivet mod and Smabat drivers if you are interested in testing one:wink:


The collection is steadily growing and i'm afraid it will get even bigger next 11.11 :smirk:

I enjoy the ST10S's off of my Fiio E12 amp, which seems to reduce that 3-4kzh area, and it works nicely for me.

But that mod is very interesting. I'd consider it if I thought I had nearly the skittles to do it lol.

Thank you for sharing! I really enjoy espying others' collections. I don't think you have enough earbuds... :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: LOL! Great start though.

Funny to think that exactly one year ago I was sitting on nearly three hundred (300) earbuds; sixty (60) plus IEMS; twenty (20) plus headphones; ten (10) pair of speakers; thirty-six (36) amps and dacs; twenty plus (20+) separate two-channel components; and hundreds and I mean literally hundreds of cables, adapters, & interconnects.

Now I am sitting on five (5) earbuds; one (1) pair of headphones; one (1) headphone amp; two (2) DACs; and maybe only twenty-five or so (25) cables & adapters. Still hunting around (testing & demoing) for the perfect DAC for my headAMP.

I'm not at the minimalist level as you are now yet, i certainly can remove several earphones out of my collection to slim it down more...maybe in this near future:grin:

It sure is. You can tell by the marking on the box, as well as the black, fabric sheathing on the lower part of the cable.

By popular demand and request (aka incessant badgering... just joking :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:! I was more than happy to do it, I simply just kept forgetting to ask the creator for all the relevant data; sorry all 🙏) I have duly updated the Earbud Timeline with Bisoy Buds/Newbsound Earbuds accordingly. There is a growing number of us earbud fanatics and flathead fiends that truly believe that custom builders such as @irv003 are the future of earbuds, not low & mid-fi corporations, who will truly drive and steer earbuds to new and greater heights. We need to support them as best as we can to ensure that are beloved transducer medium continues to flourish. The following is the entire collection that has been added to the timeline:


BISOY BUDS BLACK (BBB) / NEWBSOUND
2019 - BBB v1 (32Ω; Bisoy Buds Black; currently Newbsound)​
2019 - BBB v2 (32Ω; Bisoy Buds Black; currently Newbsound)​
2019 - BBB v2.5 (32Ω; Bisoy Buds Black; currently Newbsound)​
2020 - Newbsound v2.5 (32Ω; formerly BBB - Bisoy Buds Black)​
2021 - NewbsoundMod Silver Docomo (16Ω; formerly BBB - Bisoy Buds Black)​
2021 - Newbsound Lite (32Ω; formerly BBB - Bisoy Buds Black)​
2021 - Newbsound X (32Ω; formerly BBB - Bisoy Buds Black)​
2021 - Newbsound 140 (140Ω; formerly BBB - Bisoy Buds Black)​
2021 - Newbsound 32LCP (32Ω; formerly BBB - Bisoy Buds Black)​
2021 - Newbsound 130LCP (130Ω; formerly BBB - Bisoy Buds Black)​
2021 - Newbsound Bio (32Ω; formerly BBB - Bisoy Buds Black)​
2021 - NewbsoundMod Vido (32Ω; formerly BBB - Bisoy Buds Black)​
2021 - Newbsound PK (16Ω; formerly BBB - Bisoy Buds Black)​
2021 - Newbsound 32pro (32Ω; formerly BBB - Bisoy Buds Black)
The Newbsound 32pro is the current available model and what would a post on the Earbuds Round-Up thread be without a stellar pic of a pair of earbuds!

I am so happy to see this! Truly stellar sounding buds- the closest of any headphone I've found that captures what I love about my 2 channel home stereo.

Bisoy is one of the legends of modding here in the Philippines and I would love to grab what he has to offer right now (if only somebody is willing to ship them from US to PH).

With Bisoy the frontliner of lokal modding now being recognized internationally, I would also love to introduce lots of great modders from our country. I hope that what I do wouldn't be in vain just because of international borders and oceans dividing us. I do hope I'll get news one day that some lokal modders are getting the recognition they deserve as well in ingernational waters 😊

How is Em5 compare with your blurs?

In very brief summary, I find it a more relaxed bud and better suited to longer sessions with chilled music, predominantly ambient or modern classical. I find I'm reaching for either Blur for more energetic music, anything from techno to rock - fatigue does kick in though after a bit but in shorter sessions which tends to be the case with those genres anyway, both fantastic.
