KM, hands down. For a much lower price you get a fantastic quality stainless steel pipe. MYA is good but very pricey imho.

I had a Mya...good starter hookah....but I gotta say, a KM or MZ will beat it. The only thing Mya has over them is the fact that most of them, even the larger rigs can come in a case. Which is why I still use it for travel. But a KM has comes with a better bowl, and an AMAZING hose. Not to mention they are far more durable.

Welcome to the forum!

2 different animals, depends on what you want. They are both great smokers. Mya is very elagant with it's bohemian glass. The Chinese stem is the highest quality on the hookah market. Also, you can adjust many of them to convert to 2-3 hoses if you like.
KM's are great big Egyptian smokers. Hand made and not "perfet" but that is accepted. If you chookse a KM wait until 1-2 weeks though as they have many coming into the US.
You won't be disappointed either way.

Just got a mya collosus (coming) for over $200. I hope am not going to be disapointed.
I can also see a KM coming in summer (or a full brass hookah directly from syria). when i get both am going to see whats best

Two completely different hookahs ...

The KM is very functional and easy to clean, easy to purge smoke
The MYA (Collosus for example) is very beautiful but more difficult to clean

I have them both, when I have friends over I break out the MYA Collosus! When it is just me, I bust out the KM Amer ...

KM is where it's at. The stem is nice and thick for maximum smoke, easy to clean, and looks plain saxy!

KM made in Egypt by hand. Mya made in a Chinese factory. I'll take a KM or MZ anyday.

Myas are a joke.

both are great choices but its just that one it kinda boils down to if you want a multi hose hookah more than a one hose or vice versa.

Myas seem to be the best when it comes to multihose and KM single. Both look excellent but as john said wait a couple weeks, great ones are coming soon

Myas are a little too expensive for my blood.I mean I wouldn't say they are a joke like some people said. They are good hookahs no doubt. Just a little pricier than your average one. they are beautiful machine made pieces though. So you have minimal flaws. Handmades come with those little imperfections that prove they were handmade.

if it has a common chamber, its going to be a pain to clean (if you can even get to it). in a few years, if you dont properly clean it, the flavors will become indistinguishable especially if you smoke strong flavors (i had a common chamber mya that i can only stick in a tooth pick to clean, it was so bad i decided just to give it away)

C'mon Mod, when you say Chinese you put them all in the same category. There is Chinese crap out there and awesome Chinamade product like MYA. Same goes for any type of product that comes from China.
I;m a big fan of egytptian hookahs but you'll see some good stuff coming from China soon.

You guys are joking about the tongs right ?
Or are their GOOD Mya tongs that I just don't know about..? I have seen two different ones and they don't seem like they are designed to pick up anything properly.

Anyways, as for which one I would get out of a MYA and a KM. I would probably go with a KM, just because I like that they are hand made etc etc, oh and I'm also a conformist. But in all honestly, I say buy whatever floats your boat.

Some people pay the extra to get a precision machine built hookah. Some people don't like the visible wield marks or air bubbles in their glass. That being said they go the extra mile and pay a extra 40-50 dollars for a rig that is breath-taking. Handmade rigs are pretty too don't get me wrong.

I didn't say that all Egyptian handmade hookahs were great. I also didn't say that all Chinese factory made hookahs are garbage. It's like art. Do I want something made to look exactly like the other or do I want something made by hand and unique. I simply compared 2 hookah brands, where they are made and how they are made.
