There you go, iirc mine were around $20/$21. They are detailed, not real bassy. Killer build and looks.

@BWAS1000 , I remember now how I ended up with the KK Tings. My AliEx seller failed to put my HeadFi discount on my A4 order and to offset the difference in $195 and $216 he charged me he sent the Tings! As I mentioned I love their look, build, material (Shell and cable) and if you are like me and prefer midrange/Treble they are great but if you require a hefty bass signature I'd say you need not apply:wink: Here's a couple other shots of them, first one is mine and they other I pulled down from someone else's shot (it is a great shot IMO)

I might pick them up myself. My IEM collection was and might still be only 2 strong
Had the KZ EDSE and Mee Audio M9B
Lost the M9B and got the Mee RX18 from Massdrop. Adding the Tings isn't too bad a choice
When I get home I'll probably take a shot of the setup I use often

You may want to wait and see if any sellers put a big discount on them for the 11/11 sale:wink:

Podster, this is an amazing setup for $97.93!
Do I have the parts right ?
Walnut FI $27
KZ ZS6 with upgrade cables $45.50 (don't think includes cable upgrade)
Walnut V2/F-1 $33.00

Thank you !

Pretty much, I just saw the F1 for $30 even today on AliExpress, I got my V2 for $27, the JDS Labs IC is $4.99 everyday on JDS Labs site. Where we differ is I got my ZS6 and braided upgrade cable for $31. I'm betting if you can hold out until 11/11 sale you can get this rig even cheaper:wink:

I actually just had a second batch come in (because I have a boatload of KZ's)! Going to put one on my sons ED12's, I know but he loves them:rolling_eyes: These ran $8.54 ea. for my ZS5's and other ZST.
