Venture Electronic Monks are better????? anyone have for comparison.
I wanted to buy a Monk but could not find a reliable U.S. source.
My biggest worry at the $5 level is quality control. Not QC that makes sure that it works, but QC that makes sure it sounds the same from sample to sample.
If it concerns you that much then buy 3 for comparison lol :)
Sure, spend hours evaluating a $5 earbud. Uh - no.
Lol.. why not just buy it to enjoy as a quick throwaway? Is it because you do it as a job? just wondering.
To add on to james's post for larger sample size, I have 3 Monks and they all sound the same. I haven't heard of anyone having QC issues with VE products so far.
I did try, but I still need a link for someone who sells it via paypal - no way would I provide direct credit card info to the sellers I saw.
That's good to hear, so I will continue to try to find a source....
Do you have issues trusting AliExpress or the seller on AliExpress? Aliexpress would be an entirely different issue. But the seller in the link posted is Venture Electronics themselves. They have 1k feedback on aliexpress and the listing has almost 3000 orders. Otherwise, the guy behind VE is on head-fi and has been known to sell directly to members. You could try pming him.
Another long google search, and no vendors who take paypal, or name vendors I would trust. So, despite the $5 offer, I'll stick with Yuin and my Edifier P180.
I'd trust VE for sure, if I could enter the CC info on their page, not the AliExpress page. Whatcha think? I'd also PM the headfi guy, but I'm banned from headfi for life (competitor).
