Generally speaking, these devices are outputting an analog signal, not 1's and 0's. There is the opportunity for error/degradation in many stages of the process. Most of the differences in sound that most people will notice generally occur, I believe, after the digital to analog conversion. There can be interference from other electrical sources (or even interference generated within the device!). There can be audible white noise (hiss). There can be an imbalance in...
Thanks. That clears it up. I'm not sure which camp I'd fall into on this, in favor of the filter or not... I've never heard the ety's. For years I've used a pair of Sony MDR-CD777's. Any idea which would maybe have the closest character to these, speaking in terms of vocal forwardness? I know these are pretty obscure nowadays, but if it helps, from what I read around here, I think my 777's probably sound more the V6's than anything else. I checked out their site...
dmt1, just for clarification... It sounds to me like you're saying that by removing the notch filter a hump in the 2-4 K range was created. Were you saying this or were you saying the hump has now been removed? Thanks. This has been a very informative thread, folks.
Thanks for the info, austonia. That boggles my mind that they don't include a case - that's just asking for people to talk trash about them penny pinching. And $40 to buy one? Well, that'll help spur the 3rd party case market...

Archos players had only 2mb, and the Creative Zen NX/Xtra have only 8mb, yet get equal or more playtime and have no "skipping" effect (never heard a DAP skip as a matter of fact). The gap between songs also has no correlation to cache size as far as I can tell. Karma has 16mb cache and plays...

Based on that, and other user comments, these may be my introduction to canal phones. I'd like to see what he'd have to say about the more expensive ones as well...

I don't see the ihp1xx models here. Maybe they're named differently in Korea. If so, who knows what's what? Here's the whole thing (also from bablefish) The corresponding contents admits currently the function which is a plan which we will support, there is fluctuation of the case part function where one situation occurs unavoidably The schedule could be delayed.

Lindrone has pretty well said everything I wanted to say. So, I'll just add a bit. 1. Every ear modifies/filters the sound coming in, as does your entire head. 2. Everbody's ears/heads are somewhat different. This will affect fit/seal/sound signature. 3. As mentioned before, not all music is made to sound good on flat-response monitors. Some artists/producers aim to please the living room listener, some aim for the boombox crowd, some have people with...
