Yeah, weird that they would want commitment and personal info before one can even see what they are and what they want to sell.

you guys are so worried about the logistics, that you are missing out on the deal

penny wise, pound foolish

Does anyone know how the UI works? How do you turn on and off, how do you change modes? I hope it is not click and hold to turn on/off.

click on, click off
to change modes there is NO half press on the eSwitch models, you just turn off and back on to change modes

congrats to all you people who scored the sale price
even at full price it is a steal

moderator007, thats great to hear you figured out how to lower the first mode
kudos!

btw folks, if you want to pimp your Tool Clip, to fully captive.. get one of these

BTW, just to be clear to everyone — this discount is for “Massdrop” products only. I mistakenly thought it applies to the FIRST order on Drop Studio, regardless of product. I had gone with a knife and never saw the discount applied. I figured it would be retroactively applied at the time of the product ordering period ending, but then wrote to support to confirm… and then learned otherwise.

I already have a couple of copper flashlights, but looking at the other item choices decided to get this AAA flashlight in copper. Can’t beat it for just $10.66 shipped! I’m a little unsure of the UI and brightness. My Jetbeam-U has been so very handy… enough to unseat my old favorite Fenix L0D. But in any case, this can make a great gift item!

You have to create a new account and then Click on the link that’s been sent to your inbox, the discount is only applicable in Drop Studio items, which are mostly mechanical keyboards, non-budget knifes and enthusiast audio gear.

Not a fan of AAA lights or have never EDC’d one but $10 is a steal. There is also a CR123/RCR123 light for $60 that comes with a buck driver good for 1,000 lumens.

The Preon2 Clips Im suggesting are not Ti,

I prefer to have a magnet where I want to hold the light. I do not like a magnet attached permanently to the light itself

darksucks used to sell Ti clips for the Original Preon (made by Olight), that look similar, but they dont fit the Lumintop Tool

Public Service Warning
When I first install a battery into an eSwitch Tool, the light does not work.

give it a few minutes to charge up the capacitor in the switch, and soon all fears of malfunction will be a distant memory

Info regarding the preon clip and how to make it work at the head of the light so it can clip to a hat… it needs a conductive shim between the pill and the body…

Thanks for the headsup. You seem like an expert with this light!

I just love how well worn look that light has. Cant wait to get mine!

I was in my copper AAA phase Back in 2015

the eSwitch CU Tool is the culmination of several iterations of the Tool

It is my most used AAA
a Classic Form Factor,
w High CRI and made of
an Oligodynamic Noble Metal

I have a friend that agrees with me

If you use them and change regularly they usually are okay, if they sit in an unused light for many months or years they usually leak and get stuck in the light or ruin the light. Try some eneloops.

I highly suggest you skip KZ. I was a big fan of them for years, had KZ everything, their ATE, ZS3, ZS5, ZST, basically I spent over $100 on these crappy headphones, the replaceable cables and BT cables. Just buy some MH755, or MH750. I bought 10x off https://www.ebay.com/sch/rwtf3024/

basically $3 each IEM

and like 3x off https://www.ebay.com/itm/Original-New-Sony-MH755-Stereo-In-ear-Earbud-Headphone-For-SBH20-SBH50-SBH52-US/202700671783

Thread about them:

https://www.head-fi.org/threads/sony-budget-earphone-discussion-thread-mh750-mh755-mh1c-ex300-etc.900005/

 

Trust me, they are way better sounding than any KZ can ever be. They are asymmetrical and the MH755 needs an extender or to be resoldered, but trust me, KZ is flawed these are perfect sounding. That wire on the KZ is noisy as hell too.

Eneloop, Duracell, or Ikea ones. If you use alkaline, you can use an acid like vinegar or lemon juice to clean it up. It is not the end of the world if that happens, it can be fixed. Eneloops and Ikea ones are the same, I think some duracells are nicknamed duraloops because they are the same as well.

Oh and by the way, I figured out which resistor and value to change on the driver to give a lower low if anyone is interested. Mine now does about .5 lumen in low for a moonlight low.

 

Very interested! Does it affect other modes too? How similar is it to the Glaree E03 driver? https://jetplow.org/2018/07/14/glaree-e03-teardown-mini-review/

I don't put alkaleaks in anything that I care about, because they do leak.

I’m interested in one of these for hat brim use, so I would get the aluminum, if the discount would apply to it, but the discount only applies to the copper and Ti versions. Lighter weight is better for hat brim use.

Between those two, I’m leaning toward the Ti for the lighter weight, but copper heat sinks so much better.

Are the runtimes and the functionality of the Ti version as good as the copper, or is the copper a much better performer?

After picking the material, then I’d have to chose between the XP G2 R5 and 219 emitters. Since I would actually be using this as a tool to see with it clipped to my hat brim inside my truck topper or under the hood of a vehicle, etc., I’m torn between the high CRI, but low output of the 219 or the low CRI, but much higher output of the XP G2 R5.

The titanium isn’t expected to ship until mid January.

I have extra-large ear holes, and just about the only silicone ear tips that fit are these:

extra_large_eartips

And those ear tips fit KZ IEM's perfectly.

Plus, I'm a total basshead.

Right now I have the KZ ES4, but soon I will have the KZ ZS7.

These are true budget basshead IEM's.

If you have extra-large ear holes and like silicone ear tips, and are a basshead, there aren't many other budget choices.

That, of course, is a pretty rare circumstance, but it's where I'm at.  :-)

 

By the way, Slater is the one that told me about those ear tips, and also about the ZS7.

He also told me about my favorite over-ear headphones, so I really value his opinion.

(But don't tell him that; he'll think I'm weird.)  :P

Nice, int’l shipping to my country is still only USD2.50. $12.50 for a copper Tool AAA is a pretty sweet deal!

I liked the ES4 as well, but I can promise you the MH750 are much better at bass better than any KZ, the MH755 are also known to be bassy, just less so than MH750. Are you inserting the IEM into your ears enough? I can use the small or the large, but the small ones go deeper, much deeper. The nozzles on the ZS5 ZS6 and ZS7 are the reason I do not recommend them, look at how the bores are smooth. They will simply slip off and you will lose your tips, plus the treble is very shrill and they stuff more drivers into their IEM, but they don't sound better, the KZ ATR is the best bassy one they make IMO. The tips on the MH750 are comfortably large but I am not sure how much larger the other ones are. I measured mine and they are around 12.5mm or 13mm. I don't want to pollute the thread if this is off topic, but I highly recommend them before you make another KZ purchase. I was part of the chifi cult until I got these, and now I no longer need to buy more of the chifi, a chase that never ends because they are never quite enough, the IEM that KZ makes are almost good enough all the time, but never enough. These are $6.60 or $3.30 if you buy 10x of them, and I think they are perfect.

The MH750 might be great.

It might even be truly basshead.

But unless the ear tips are extremely large, they won't work for me.

You can add expedited shipping for $5 and get the discount! Big Smile

Cool -- thanks for all this info & will investigate. I was starting to wonder if the technology production optimization had gotten so good now, that "audio engines" for this tiny form factor are pretty much at the limit, and all these companies are doing is coming up with fancier packaging to seduce people into spending hundreds of dollars for the same technology in lesser earbuds. About 10 years ago, I don't think this was the case. I have about 5 different earbuds ranging from $10 to $50, purchased over about 5 years or so, last set from 4 years ago. And there are notable differences.

Lighter weight is better for hat brim use.

the new version of the Lumintop Tool aaa w pebbled Tir is a better hatlamp due to the more even field of illumination. It does not have an eSwitch, it has a mechanical clicky (wont tailstand). It does not come in High CRI

these aaa lights do not run on the Highest mode for long, I mainly use the Medium mode. The lumintop version starts on Medium, which I like better than the Massdrop version, which starts on Low.

I specifically dislike the Ti version on High mode, because the brass ring on the head gets hot to touch, while the body stays cool.

The Massdrop versions w N219c make 110 lumens (briefly), so there is no reason to buy the Cool White version, imo. The medium modes are essentially the same. To get the $20 discount, you have to buy something that costs a minimum of $30.

The copper version is a LOT heavier than the Aluminium…

(note, both lights have LED swaps, that is not the tint of the 219c)

The 219c is greener, pictured in the middle:

I just got a shipping notice for the drop Cu Tool I ordered.. woohoo!

Had to choose between the Blue TI at $35 and the $30 Cu. Copper won out. I had a $20 off Drop Studio code, and payed $10.75 shipped!

My referrer code, if anyone wants to use it.

More Photons!
