I just did an audio comparison between the real ones and the fakes. The fakes are actually slightly louder, and are more bass biased. At maximum volume on my PC it sounds like they're just starting to distort a little bit, which the real ones dont. However, the real ones have significantly better mid range and especially high frequency treble. Listening to them back to back i realize with the fakes i'd be missing so much content in music.

There is only one colour for these - chocolate/gold. You should be fine.

Did they provide any tracking information for your order?

Ordered from ibuygou on the 8th, received on the 18th. No tracking info received.

Headphones dig into my ears a bit (metal casing bites into ear cartilage in the back). I've replaced the stock buds with ones from my shure e2cs and they fit like a charm. Also ordered comply foam buds T400s. Those are supposedly great for sound isolation and comfort.

Great deal, great headphones. Thanks OP!
Up and Atom!!!
If my thread or post was helpful, a "thank you" is always nice.

I've also received my pair within 20 days from Merimobiles. Sound quality of the earphones is very good (I would not say it's the best that I've heard for IEM).

Rubber buds that they came with are garbage from my point of view since they do not adhere to the skin, and the buds end up falling out of my ears. I've replaced those with a stickier type of rubber, and they are good now.

I appreciate the fact that they are very light, though the design is not perfect. The metal casing ends up touching my ear and causing some discomfort. The edge that makes contact is a very 'grippy' one, also a bit sharp, and feels very strange against the skin. I almost gave up on them because of that, but they are now getting a second chance, due to their good sound performance.

Anyone know good tips to put on these? I've tried all 4 sizes they come with and they always fall out if I move my head or start eating.

Ordered on the 11th from Meri-mobiles and they came today. Quite impressive for the price and I haven't even broken them in yet.
