it's not exactly a shop. i think it's at one of the agent's place where they make some arrangements for you to try out. i went to ask them over the chat box in treoo.com
you can try asking the chatbox how you can arrange to try them out.
but feel like waiting a while, cos they say they trying to bring in brainwaz m2, wanna try that to see the difference as well
If you wanna try Brainwavz M2, there are other seller. Just search this forum - I won't mention any names. I bought M2 last week from him. Very nice guy to deal with. Can try/test without obligation to buy.

hmmm jus got to try M2... Somehow it sounded muffled and clarity seemed to be missing... not sure is it the songs or wat, but when i tried denon and bijou3 it seemed to be clearer? Was a tad disappointed, just my opinion though

Was grateful for the kind seller who brings it down for me to test!

Looking for a new earphone to replace my spoilt CKM-50.
Going through the forum and checking the prices, I've shortlisted:
- CKM-55
- Klipsch S2
- PL50
- brainwavz m2

Anyone can give advice, haven't tried PL50 though, I just saw that it seems that it is highly recommended in this forum.

I put noise isolation and comfort as my priority, I'm not very sensitive with sound, but I like a good bass effect

Hi guys,
Does anyone know if the Soundmagic PL50 come with short cord for use with remote control or jabra bluetooth? If not, which short cord earphone would you recommend?
My requirements are that it should be durable/longlasting and have good sound quality. Thanks in advance.

If it wasn't for the "tadpole" shape, I would push for the S2. Do try out the M2 first, been hearing good things about it but have yet to give them a try.

PL50 are abit lacking in bass so that should be out of your question.

I own the m2 and honestly it sounds great but the part in which it is lacking, i gotta say its the isolation. The only way to resolve it is to use the foams which is bundled together in the package.

oh and the S2 sounds good too but the price is abit steep compared to the m2

seems like CKM-55 will be a better option for me due to easier handling of warranty

i didn't regard my ckm-50 to be bassy. But ckm-55 is more bassy then ckm-50. After getting the ckm-55, i'd rather listen to my music on ckm-50.

hello guys.
my skullcandy in-ear have officially spoilt!
so i need to get a new earpiece.

my budget is $60-70
wondering whether creative EP-830 is worth it for the price...
or is there any other product that is better?

thanks for the help! ^^

Currently using Scosche IDR355md bought for $76. Sound is pretty decent compared to Creative EP-630 which i bought for $45 2 years ago. I tried nuforce NE7 b4 and i must say the quality of sound packs a punch too, but i didn't really like its design though.

Can anyone recommend a good IEM? My budget is around $60. I'm not an audiophile, so a decent sound quality will do (not worse than the standard apple earphones though haha!) What's more important to me is the noise isolation and comfort. I want to be able to listen to music on noisy trains and buses without tuning up the volume

Shortlisted some earphones after looking through the posts:

- PL50
- Klipsch s2
- Brainwavz m2
- CKM 50/55

i'm looking for an IE below $100. currently using Sony EX-90( i think) which compares poorly to my older EX-71. priority as such : comfort > durability > sound quality ( but at least ok). looking for more clarity than bass. used mainly on handphone ( but not iphone)

current shortlist for me is a-Jays three, but would like to see other models to compare with it. prefer angular jack but not that big of a deal

Here’s my advice, put that little plastic shovel down, and look into what makes a difference between a tactical and strategic airlift.

When up to speed on that one, see why Il-76 and C-17 are dual role (strategic/tactical), while larger craft like C-5/An-124/225 are dedicated strategic lifters.

Please come back and enlighten all of us, and then talk about how many missiles (LOL!) it will take to shoot down STRATEGIC airlifters!
