My 1964 Ears order arrived today. I was having trouble with head-fi's post composer, or else I would have had this up sooner (I ended up having to switch to the "Basic editor" to get anything to work right.) I got: -custom sleeves for Westone IEM -custom sleeves for Apple dual-driver IEM (ADDIEM) -solid ear plugs -1964-Q custom quad-driver IEM. I took pictures of each item with camera flash on and off, which allows for different details to be seen on the translucent...
  I asked this question before I placed my order, and Aleksey said, "I’d say about one out of 10 orders need a refit." It looks like UniqueMelodyAus was using exact figures from actual data, while Aleksey was just guesstimating, so it's probably best to not read too much into this.

Here's a good way to use EAC to encode to Apple Lossless. Download iTunesEncode.exe from here. Read this guide on how to set up EAC. (It looks long and it's separated over six pages, but it's simple to follow and doesn't take very long.) Instead of following that guide's instructions for the Compression Settings window, make it look like the screenshot I've attached. For the additional command-line options, put this: Quote: -e "Lossless Encoder" -a "%a" -l "%g"...
As for your size concerns, the iPhone has the exact same height as the Bold. The iPhone is smaller in depth (0.48 inches vs 0.60 inches). The iPhone is also smaller in width (2.4 inches vs 2.6 inches). So the iPhone is as small or smaller than the Bold in every dimension. A review of the Bold states: Quote: The Bold’s gutsy little speaker is more than sufficient for playback sans headphones. I still think it's a little crazy to blast music from a...
Why would have to have it unlocked? Why would it cost $800? If your parents are getting it for you anyway, why do you care how much it costs?

Here's two examples: (1) They claim that the new iPods' Cirrus DAC is more audiophile-grade than the older Wolfson DACs, while everyone else in the world would say the opposite. (2) Their review of the Bose QuietComfort 3 says it has...
