Not bad but too much high frequencies : tiring...
I prefere the Qian 39 (aliexpress) with great basses (not to much but real basses on IEM, it is a surprise). Price less than 5 $.

Is it possible to get any more covers for the earbuds?
when monk will be activated again?
I've got several pairs of nice iems like the Pinnacle P1 yet I listen to these almost daily... I actually ordered 8 pairs to share with people but I've just decided to hoard them for myself lol. These and the Koss Kph30i are really great in my opinion... HD 6xx are collecting dust in the corner.
I love this pair, it's like I've strapped some speakers right next to my ear. However, one gripe I have is the VERY inefficient foam tips that come with them. I've already blown through most of them, as they will loosen up and fall off every two weeks. With this being said, I'm pretty sad I didn't get the extension kit, but next time this drops I'll be all over it.
Well I'm glad to at least have tried these. With that said, I'm pretty disappointed. Powered by S7 Edge, these had lesser sound quality than my $8 Panasonic earbuds. Just going to keep these Monks in my car's glove compartment and forget about them.

Your phone is the weakest link, stack a portable DAC/AMP to your phone and watch those $5 earphone put a smile so big people will see your molar tooth a mile away.
I just got some Regular black monks with stock cable from somewhere else, and kinda sad I missed this blue drop because these sound great! Definitely reccomend these for work where noise cancellation isn’t really ideal. I can imagine these will be a great reference for testing expensive iems against before buying.
Anyone know how long is shipping if ordering directly from venture ?

Not sure if their AliExpress shop counts, I ordered 5 pairs and they got into canada in 7 days with regular epacket. However it landed in BC and somehow took 12 days to get to Ontario 🤨 kinda expected of Canada post though.
I got these for $3 here, which is awesome but is another month until they ship, so I ordered another pair of amazon for $10. Is not as great of a deal, but they'll be here by Friday. I figure I'll use them until the blue pair arrive, then ill give the black pair to my friend
Edit: and they do sound amazing for $5, for sure worth the money!
Look at all those savings.
To those whining about the 0.01 cent discount, WTF! They're five dollar earbuds, for the sound quality and price not sure what you're all whinging about! Want a bigger discount? Go to the Veclan or Aliexpress website and save more on the shipping.

Amusing! Rather than a gif though, why post the obvious then? Makes one think doesn't it hahaha.
Chairman_Wang
LOL! If that makes you think, you need to grease the hamster wheel! Bhwahahahah!
Did I forget how to use a shopping cart or is there not an option to choose different options for the order?
Also, is the braided cable just that? No mic or whatnot?
Chairman_Wang
I press join drop then am presented with two options color/mic/cable with limited options and with or without extra pack which is extra options for the foamy fabric thing that goes on them. There is different options on their website but they are also limited as to which ones you can put mics on and which have the braided cable. I think this is the only place to get the translucent blue pair and the black ones look almost black but they say is midnight blue.

Drop ended :/ but I was more trying to mix and match colors.
I was also wondering if the braided cable had a mic attached as it is not mentioned anywhere. Oh well.
I have given all of mine away again! (Except the one I'm using right now!) I'm in for 8 this time, 2 with mics, 5 without, and 1 with a braided cable. The 5 without mics are all just to give to people! I really like these headphones.
Wow what A great DEAL. With an insane 1 cent decrease in price you will be loving these buds!

Yeah not even any savings, or things I can't get elsewhere!!! Except the exclusive colors, DOOOHH
I like these a lot as do all I have shared them with.
2.5 mm TRRS braided would be a welcome option.
These if you're looking for the biggest bang, bang, bang for your buck. (Tip: try balanced)

Theoretically they make a difference, but the ultimate goal of listening to music is for your enjoyment. Try out a balanced pair and if you don't like them, avoid them in the future. You can't know what you hear without listening to them first.

Cool, thanks for the reply! :)
It's more about the exclusive and voted on colors for the Massdrop community. Not so much the $0.01 discount.
I have these from the last drop. They are pretty awesome for 5 bucks. I'm ordering a few more sets as I always seem to lose my ear buds. Can anyone comment on the ones with braided cables?
Thank God I can get a one cent discount on these bad boys! I would not be able to eat tonight if it was not for that incredible discount.
Grr why cant i get the Translucent blue with a android 3 button Mic plus the braided cable!??! Not enough customization!
$5 headphones, $9 shipping... yeah I'll think about it

Shipping on VEClan or Aliexpress is about half or cheaper.
No offense to the manufacturer, but this type of earbud is the worst fitting and least comfortable earbud... ever. Someone couldn't pay me to use them.

Cool, I didnt know about those, I will have to give them a try! Thank you!!

Also, and sorry I didn't respond before, the pressure is what you want. That means it's creating a good seal for the noise isolation. (I agree it can be uncomfortable at times though. I tend to go back and forth between a good seal and comfort.) As the other poster mentioned Comply makes a number of different foam tips for different earbud models. You can pick them up on Amazon or directly from their website.
how is 1 cent a good drop?
I'm having an issue with mine connected to my android phone. When I plug it in it pauses/stops audio from coming out. For instance, when I plug it in while a youtube video is playing it pauses the video and if I try & unpause it from app it just pauses again.
asafpeleg
android pauses and unpauses when you plug/unplug anything from the headphone jack (and bluetooth). it shouldn't be pausing again if you try to unpause it, make sure its in all the way, make sure there's nothing clogging it up either.
I love these headphones! There great iems got super cheap. They have a decent soundstage and feel comfortable. The lows do not sound as nice as the hifiman 400s but very nice indeed! I recommend
Uh, anyone else have issues with these being too big? I gave them to a friend who needed new earbuds and they don't fit her ears - I don't think her ears are particularly small either?
versipellis
I have a friend that tried them and had the same issue. Funny thing is, I added a plastic cover (from Yurbuds) that adds a little size but has a sort of cone that actually goes inside your ear just a little and that works for her. She uses them daily now. I think it was partly just the plastic was slipping out of her ears. I think the small plastic rings that come with the Ex Pack may help.
Just received mine. Pretty good sound for such a cheap pair. Listening to hall oats they sound much more lively/energetic then the akg M220. Much different sound signature. Will be great for listening to while working out or mowing the lawn. Not sure how I will like them for extended listening. Will add more later.
Wow! Once I got a proper fit, these are the 1st headphones, (iem, over ear on ear, planar, high end low end, bluetooth or whatever) that could be described as FUN! I used my V20 and the Ibasso D14 all day and I can't think of a better sound investment that was this much bang for the buck.

My v20 won't see them as high impedance. Does your v20 recognize them as such ?
Oscarin
Yes it does. I sometime have to remove the plug and reinsert it, but it generally works,
So my friend got his already, still waiting on my units with the braided cable to come in.
That said, I borrowed his and they live up to the $5 Chi-Fi hype. Great clarity, super warm mids, love em.
My gripes are as follows:
1. Not incredibly comfortable. May want to hunt down some thicker foams. 2. Since these are earbuds, there's 0 noise isolation. As a result, the bass can be a bit anemic.
Due to the slightly higher impedance and the lack of bass/isolation, I plugged them into my Topping NX1s amp. With gain/bass boost on, these sound incredible. The warm mids really bring out male vocals and high-gain guitars (Interpol and Intervals sounded really fantastic.) I also have to give props to the cable and jack as well. Very solid, not something I feel will fall apart after a few weeks of wear & tear.
I think these are worth it to have tossed into your backpack on the daily, or just as a backup if you forget your daily driver IEMs.
I'll have to toss them back to my buddy soon, can't wait to get mine in the mail!!
EDIT 1/9/2018:
I received mine in the mail, and boy am I glad I opted for the upgrade package with the braided cable and case. The nicer cable comes with a very sturdy termination point, a carrying case, and lots of additional choices for ear foams. The braided cable is also longer than the stock cable, meaning I can wear these more comfortably when using a portable amp or my desktop setup.
The Y-Joint where the cables meet seems kind of far away from your chin, but adding a small piece of shrink-wrap should fix that problem fairly easily. Would have been nice if this was added from the get-go.
Easy $20 spend on a fun set of earbuds!!
For those who don't like the sound out of the box, keep in mind these require an extra 120 hours break in due to their small size.
I play them while letting them soak in olive oil to get that tube sound.

Yeah, I think soaking headphones in virgin olive oil in an effort to get a tubelike sound might do some damage.
Always use the extra virgin!

Good to know. I did try some WD-40 followed by a polyurethane dip and this did help improve the tonal tonality of the efram frequency range.
