What ex­tras come in the pack­age?

Mac Format - - RATED | KIT -

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.
