Actually vpost is cheap and fast already compared to USPS standard. (Approx US$20-40) Base for electronics is approx $10 and if you combine with other electronics, you save on the base charge as its a one time fee per order.

And vpost allows you to buy from US merchants that dun ship overseas. 5-7 days to arrive SG. Normal mail can take 2-3 weeks from US.

Me cheapo leh

I opted for free shipping which took a week

Once Amazon confirm the delivery status you need to liaise with vpostUSA.

Then vpostUSA will send you the invoice.

Upon payment the item will usually take 5 to 7 working days to arrive in SG.

I managed to test afbug's ER4P, pretty nice phone

But must be jammed real deep to get the bass out o.O

The bass extension is real deeeeeeep for an IEM, and its got a pretty nice body to the sound too, quite detailed, but the mid-highs to high-highs feel very rolled off as compared to even the UM2.

Next time we meet, I'll try to come prepared with an impedance cable in hand to convert it to the 4S

Actually both of you could have shared on the vpost shipping. Base charge only charge once per order. So its $10 + box diamensions or weight divide 2.

I think both of you are the 1st two iM716 owners in SG. Maybe one day should meet up. I will like to test a shuffle on the iM716. See can drive it efficently or not.

Yeah nice but not very good for outdoors.

Actually, its not really right say that its highs are roll off cos it has slightly better treble than a ER6i. If so, then ER6i's super roll off. Maybe should put it this way: UM2 got extended treble. For me, i'm happy with its treble. Anymore, it will be sibilient. Thats why, i dun plan to buy the P to S cable or DIY one. Maybe in future if i'm curious but not at the moment.

You know, Etys are not famous for treble roll off. It actually have treble boost. They themself said that.

So desperate to receive them meh? But ya, its an excellent deal at US$69.90, can spend more on shipping. Lucky got vpost, if not cannot buy liao. Amazon dun ship electronics overseas. Maybe should have gotten a cheap Koss KSC75 too!
