Asked for a deal from the rep from lightinthebox and got this.
No coupon required.
"Sorry, products not found."
Edit: Seems to be back again. Anyone used these? Whats the bass like?
really good bass, kinda distorts on 100% volume. so use at 70%
Seems like a good deal and I'm looking for a pair of cheap earphones to carry around when I don't have my Sony MDR-1000XM2s. Has anyone got these and what are they like in terms of sound quality and comfort?
I have them. Sound quality is OK. Probably equal to most earphones here in the $80-$100 range.
they sound great, if you like a bass heavy sound. I've had a few pairs (use them daily, gym, etc) and rate them, but not an analytical sound if that is more your style.
the 5th gen ones. theyre called Mi Pro hd. these are 4th gen mi hd.
5th gen have a good balance. i got them for 55-60$.
At this price? no. You're looking at around the 100AUD price range even for chifi.
Is the Pro version better?
pro are more analytical.
I prefer these for their bass heavy fun sound. ymmv.
Nope. They're not even in the remotely similar style of earphones. The pro is a detailed earphones that focuses on the mids and high, with weak bass.
This is a V shape earphone with muffled middle. It's fun for sure, but not that detailed.
They both have very different sound signatures.
Personally I prefer this version as it has a V shape sound signature, the bass is much more pronounced.
The pro version is a lot more flat but still has great details.
Which one is better depends on your taste really. Most casual listeners like myself, would probably prefer these over the pro's I reckon
Yes, definitely. I have both and the pro hds sound weird in comparison. They are also a lot heavier.
Pro has more detail and clarity. But the treble is overbearing. 's' sounds from a female vocalist I would sometimes describe as 'scratchy' at times. It doesn't sound natural.
It's a real shame, because the clarity and detail blow the IV out of the water, and it's hard to go back. But I can't take the harsh treble.
Overall if I had to choose, I'd recommend these over the Pro.
The Pro has a more premium packaging. You get a carry bag with it also.
How much better would these be than the Xiaomi mi piston fresh edition I have been using for months?
2nd that! heaps
something to keep in mind with these is that if you're not really careful with the cord, it gets badly twisted/tangled to the point of making the headphones borderline unusable. i own these and i'd honestly say either go with the piston fresh edition or spend a bit more on the triple driver hybrid pro.
Got these and have never had a problem with the cord. Also, went swimming in the beach with them in my pocket and they still work perfectly.
Water exposure doesn't really tend to be a problem for earphones if you can dry them out. Real concern is the cable getting damaged which happens a lot easier from getting thrashed around in the water (especially washing machine). But also I don't have a problem the the cable on these earphones, much easier to untangle than sticky soft touch plastic.
Have had mine in the washing machine a couple of times. Still work great. Generally with non battery earphones, water is not a problem as long as they are dried out before next use
The cables are braided. I haven't hand tangling issues with them.
What's the shipping like?
A floating truck without wheels but with a propeller.
Also some sailors waving when they leave/arrive at port
It says shipping time is around 3-5 days, anyone knows it’s accurate or it’s just bs? Thank you
thats for expedited shipping. choose regular postal service unless you want to pay an extra $12.
Thanks mate! Just tried to check out and it’s showing 14-28 days for free shipping.
Is the cord quality similar to fresh edition? My fresh edition broke (one ear not working) after several months usage
Price changed to 30.68 AUD now?
Getting the same issue as well.
@kakarot123 Hi OP, Is it possible to get the deal back on please?
Incase OP doesn't refresh deal, here is an alternative that you might be interested in https://audiobudget.com/product/ROCK/Zircon
I'll message the rep from light in the box and see what they say? :)
Have messaged and waiting on a reply.
the rep said he'd contact tthe supplier to see if they can get more stock
Rep said no stock atm. He'll post up something once they get stock and if he can get a deal.
Sound quality sucks compared to my google pixel earphones. Absolutely no bass what so ever. Fit also sucks. I would rather spend more money to get a decent pair of earphones.
Interesting how everyone else plus Web reviews say the bass is amazing but not you. Maybe you're fitting them incorrectly or there is a fault?
Are you talking about these?
looks like it, when compare a BMX with a BMW.. the cheaper one mostly sucks
Nah just the stock earphones they provide for the google pixel mobile.
Unfortunately they don't provide earphones in the pixel 2 box these days :(
@midlake: Wow they be cheaping out these days.
Those are known to be crappy.
I assumed he meant the pack ins.
You get multiple ear tips if they don't fit you well.
I can't comment on the pixel sound because I don't have one.
But for the price you pay, these are pretty good.
