Do you there is something similar with detachable cable ?
Havent tried any nor seen any like that.
That shell is rare enough as it is, so I dont think you can expect to find many (besides DIY) shells like that with a replaceable cable.

Hi
I'm looking for some earbuds (d'uh) since my last two pairs died ...
I used to have Apple Earbuds, the comfort was top notch and I had a Nice Hck ME80. The sound was very airy and light, I heard details I never heard before which is great. Wide Soundstage too. But the shape was uncomfortable and it wasn't that stable in my ear. Plus it's died rather quickly.

I also had a few IEM's pairs : KZ ate S, KZ ZST and shure se215.

Here is what i'm looking for :

Shape : Earpod like or very small. Not like the bell shaped me80.
Price : 50$ or less.
Cable : Detachable if possible with MMCX connector so I can replace it easily.
Sound : More or less like the one with the earpods. I found the shure one a bit muddy and sparkless and the me 80 were lacking some bass.
Housing : Metal if possible.
Mic : Yes

I want something that I can keep a long time since I'm a student and budget is bit tight.
I'll be listening on iphone 8, laptop and maybe Ipod Classic.

Sen-fer pt25 would have been perfect but it seems that it's not produced anymore sadly.
What about this one ? Or this one ?

I'm open to all the propositions, and i'm looking forward to discuss them and be part of this community.

Thank you

I've got a couple of sets of the PT15 (2017), which look a little odd, but fit my ears well.
They appear to still be available - https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32951502746.html

Hello, does anyone have recommendations for a sub $15 earbud with a good mic? my earbud (MB770G/B) is dead. used for calls/meetings. Thanks!

Hmm if u can maybe top up 5 bucks more, the NiceHCK EB2S and HZSound Bell Rhyme are very good for the coin. They come with mic versions during ordering.

Hey, just one observation to this very informative and awesome list:

How come the V88/V99 is not set in bold? Just being curious, some consider them as the best ones ever created.
Cheers
If you can afford them by selling your kidneys!
Only one ive seen for sale is 2000gbp or 3000usd...yeah

Good catch there! It should be bolded... on one of the many updates I made I had accidently reformatted and simply missed re-bolding them. Fixed now! Thank you for the correction, very much appreciated. Cheers!

Cool, np :) I bought a V741 just recently, being shipped right now. I'd really like to have a V99 with the screw adapter version, but short of donating all my organs, I too, have no idea how to get one. :) Do you have most of these though on the list? One of the best lists I have ever seen.

This is the “only” list.
No one has this much information about earbuds, except Mr Woody :beerchug:
