What extras come in the package?
All the earbuds include carry cases and a range of spare tips. Audiofly offers a velvet-lined steel storage tin and four tip sets; Sony includes a nylon snap-shut pouch and the same number of tips. Klipsch also offers four tips, but the medium size have double flanges for better sound isolation. RHA crams in 10 tip sets in its premium-feel carry case: eight silicone (two doubleflanged) and two foam pairs for superior noise isolation. In comparison, the Klipsch case feels a bit cheap and inferior. AKG includes three tip pairs in a fine hard carry pouch and Vibe pack two in a luxurious drawstring bag. The Audiofly buds have braided cables, as do the well-made Vibes; Sony’s brass buds get a coil-friendly cable coating, the RHA’s cord is steelreinforced at the ends and strong, but the AKG offering feels a bit lightweight overall.
Sony includes a cord adjuster to rein in cable length, RHA packs a clip (as does Klipsch) to securely affix cable to clothes, as well as a stainless steel tip holder.
