They have a reputation for comfort which I think is well-deserved (the silicone tips being especially soft is part of it), are low-profile and...

Didn't know if it was relevant or not, but was curious about it. Another member has noted "grain" in mids on the Clip+ in another thread, so it may just be the Clip+ itself... In which case I might just have to try rockbox...
Quote: *EDIT* Also, listened to some straight sine-wave tones from 30Hz to 20kHz and it crackled like hell for a moment between each 3sec file, in both pairs of phones, from both laptop and Clip+... Is that normal? So if I understand you correctly, you are saying the problem is reproduced exactly regardless of source (laptop/clip) or headphone? Looks like it's time to re-rip those CDs with EAC in secure mode. In my experience poorly ripped CDs tend to...
So now the next candidate for FOTM goes for $2.23 per ear...shipped? I didn't think times were still that bad. Hey sorry, but you read about handing over a 5 dollar bill for a pair of headphones that will still leave you enough change left over for a pack of gum, somebody is going to say something Seriously though robjrock, thanks for the writeup/reminder. These are easily overlooked, but at the very least, I think they'd be great to toss in the glove...

Think of the Dos Equis guy when it comes to headphones, and you'll get the picture. Everyone around here once tried to coax him out of his seclusion, but after just a few brilliant reviews, he went JD Sallinger on us. Mostly, we've learned to adjust to the great vacuum his absence has left us with, but every now and then...

I really appreciate the direct Denon link as I was just about to drop 2500 for the used one on Amazon. So I just saved 2,000 -- wow, thank you! Please, next time title this thread, "Click here NOW to save 2000 dollars on a 59 inch ethernet cable," of course then people...
