I owned the Vibes and used them exclusively as my primary IE for quite a while. But unlike many of those spoken of here, I am thinking mine must have been a later gen edition, because the one I had, had the V-Plug Jack design (much more sturdy than the straight plug design). I never had any issues with the plug.   I did have to initially send back the first pair of them I bought, because of a 'crinkle' noise I heard in the left earpiece upon insertion (each and every...

I realize this might be a bit off-topic, but I just wanted chime in and say I can't agree with you more about this. I recently purchased a pair of "refurbished" Monster Turbine Pro Coppers, from off of Amazon. As soon as I opened up the box, examined the earphones and took a listen, I knew something was definitely wrong, and I sent them back for refund. They sounded terrible, and one side (the right side) was actually way overemphasized, compared to the left-hand side...
How much use (break-in) had your Beat/Tours had prior to this comparison? Were the Beats already burned-in, and which Tour/Beats are you referring to, the IE's or the OE's?   Also, did you use the exact same song sample, at the exact same volume level, using the exact same source --- all for this comparison you did? What type of iPod are you using? Was the sound level the same for the song(s) you are listening to for the comparison --- if not, go back and re-create...

EDIT:  SOLD     FOR SALE:   A used pair of UE700 IE's. These have probably had between 200 and 250 hours of use (they were burned-in for about 200 hours, but really haven't had that much use apart from that, as far as I can recall now). They are in "LIKE NEW" condition. They still sound wonderful, and everything will be included with them (all 5 pairs of white silicon tips, as well as 2 pairs of Comply Tips, original Logitech packaging, and original UE carrying...
Hi,   I have a question for anyone who either owns or knows much about a 6th generation iPod Nano (8gb). I am wondering if someone can please let me know what the ACTUAL storage capacity of one of these 8gb devices is (with nothing loaded on it except the original firmware).   Reason I ask is, I own a Touch (4th gen, 8gb), but am wanting to buy a Nano just for my music (and nothing else). I know for a fact that the Touch, though stated as an 8gb, only ACTUALLY...
I agree with you about James Taylor's 'Fire And Rain'. Good selection (for a very sad song). I remember listening to it one time, and REALLY feeling the pain he was expressing he was going through.   Bob Dylan has a lot of good material along these lines too. Pretty much everything on 'Blood on the Tracks' is like this, as well as a song on his 'Street Legal' album ('Where Are You Tonight (Journey Through Dark Heat)')    
Another one worth mentioning is John Brown, also by Bob Dylan (a very rare song, which is available on his MTV Unplugged Live album (1995).   This is a very sad one indeed. As a matter of fact, if I'm not mistaken I believe even Dylan gets choked up while singing it at one point.   This song will absolutely tear you up on the inside, though.
