    Brand new models. The thing is Mykita for some reason doesnt sell all the Margiela Collar opticals on their site. I found an independent place who had great reviews and are nice enough to make them into sunglasses for me (sky blue lenses). They have some other cool models too in ruby/gold and taupe/gray

    Im going for this look on the model I got

    Are all the mykita x Margiela crazy light? Nordstrom has a pair and even at 60% off I found them too light weight

    For anyone interested in iem for their music I replaced my worn out 5 year old sennheiser ie 4 with a shitty pair of sony $12 from target. First thing I noticed is the silicone ear tips were junk and folded over onto themselves when I was test fitting them. Secondly I never got a good fit or seal. The earbuds themselves sounded like garbage and there was very little bass. Took them to the gym and wasn't really satisfied even after using my beat up senns. Music sounded flat, highs were too shrill and almost a narrow frequency range. I said fuck it and got a fresh pair of ie4 from bhphoto for $60 shipped, beware of counterfeits on amazon btw, and they sound incredible. Not going to do any type of special burn in but right out of the simple package there was such a wide dynamic range, excellent base and crisp highs without being shrill. Also very good isolation from ambient noise and a great fit not to mention much higher spl. So glad I rebought these I might buy a few more as backups. The reason I mention it is because you won't see these mentioned on sites like wirecutter and typical blog reviews so I wanted to give them a shout out.

    Just recently updated my gym music game to a Shanling M0. Nice upgrade from my cell phone and Jay Birds.
