Hi, seems like there was a problem with the shipping and it is being sent back? Do you have more information on this?

Taking a stab at a pair of these. Wife needs a beater pair for an FM receiver she uses on tours and travel. Are these $5 earbuds really better than your typical $5 earbuds?

They have a very natural timbre to them. Are they going to isolate? No. Are they going to shake your skull with bass? Definitely not. Will they show some sibilance? Sure. Do they lean toward neutral? Yes, maybe a slight n shape frequency response. Very easy on the ears, they sound larger than they are, and show a good amount of detail for a price you wouldn't expect. I bought a pair for my wife back when Massdr- er, Drop- were selling these with braided cables and a carrying case. I'm using them now for sampling sound effects to mix in for a play. I'll do final mixing with an amp and a pair of K7XX, but these guys are giving me the detail I need to judge "is this a good recording or not?" So yeah. Better than $5 would get you in a walmart, that's for sure.

Sounds very well for the price. You know those 5-9 dollar headphones that come in a little disposable case you can get at the gas station? This looks like it might be that cheap, but the sound is of a 30 dollar headphone. Hard to lose with these.

Thanks for the kind words! Don't forget to leave a review for all the products you've purchased. Sometimes it takes a while for the internal services to process that you've received the product (can't leave a review until the system knows you have the product)

Be warned. I ordered the 3-button Android Mic Version... MD sent me 2 iPhone variants before refunding me and telling me they can't guarantee the correct version ships from the warehouse, so they won't send me a replacement.

I like how it sounds but they made it way too large for ears. Can't quite get a good position to fit them in to hear the full sound without using something to keep them steady on your ears. I stopped using them because of discomfort, good sound but poor design choice.

Anyone else get crackling in theirs? Doesn't seem to be related to cord brushing against clothing... great earbuds for the price except I can't stand to listen to them for more than 60 secs with the crackling coming in :(

I'm based in Greece. I'm used to month-long waiting times when expecting from China, but usually US packages arrive within a couple of weeks tops. Perhaps I'll reach out to Massdrop if I don't see any progress this week either.

Definitely reach out to CS if you haven't already. I recently ordered a pair of KSC75's through Massdrop. They were marked as shipped on Fedex, but had no other tracking information after nearly two weeks. So they quickly and kindly shipped out a second pair which I received in less than a week.

Yes they are indeed. At second sight It's bluish. If you look at it from a distance, say 2-3 feet, it looks black.

These earbuds have the same housings as the Sennheiser MX400 and MX500 of the early 2000s. It was an inexpensive but very good sounding design. Check out ebay listing 302090057713 and judge by yourself. I have just received mine. I own a pair of the Sennheiser MX400. The sound is very similar to that of the MX400 even with no burn-in. These buds are unbeatable at this price. I have attached a picture with a side by side comparison: Sennheiser MX400 on the left and Venture Electronics Monk Plus without mic on the right.

You are absolutely correct. The casing is identical to the MX400. That explains why they sound so good. They took an old tried-and-true design and we branded it with stirring success.

Were these designed before or after Jonas Venture Junior's departure from the company. I really feel like the Venture Brand has slid down hill since then.

I'm pretty sure I would order these except for the fact that I've owned same style buds in the past and they never work out for me because they don't fit me securely and my ears end up sore from me trying to keep them in. I guess that means my ear openings are too small making me not a good candidate for these. "Can"didate, get it? 🙃

Just received mine. They sound great but feel awful. Just don't fit my ears the way I like. Too big and no way to get a better fit. Oh well, at least they were cheap.

I may be wrong but I think you and a crapload of other people are not wearing earbuds the right way. Massdrop should post a simple tutorial for new users, but instead, they mistakenly assume that the masses will learn on their own account. These are not in-ear earphones (iem) or even semi in-ear earphones like the apple earpods, therefore, they should not be treated as such. It took me a little while to get used to wearing them properly. At first I also tried to cram them in my ear canals and swore they were made for dumbo-sized ears but, by the grace of Allah, I learned shortly after. I really started to love earbuds once I got used to the relaxed fit. The included earfoams suck since they’re oddly abrasive and that does make them uncomfortable, imo. This guy on YouTube does a good job showing how to wear them at minute 3:25. Good luck! https://youtu.be/8Je_dBSPSdc
