Thanks for the tip! At this point I feel like I'm giving it away so am a bit surprised I keep having to lower the price.
I just want to mention that I have wandered around stereo exchange a number of times without ever being pressured or asked to leave. I do not fit the profile of a typical audiophile. I've felt out of place in other nyc audio establishments but not here. It's refreshing.
I've been playing around and it looks to be a free addon for any purchase over $275 or so but I'm not totally sure. Seems like a a pretty sweet deal.   edit - I made a purchase with the free 132 in my cart and I guess we'll see whether the deal is real or not. I just tried adding the same item to my cart and it doesn't offer me the free iems any more so who knows.
I'm not sure where this thread belongs but... I was just playing around on earphonesolutions and added a Westone W40 ($499) to my shopping cart and the Phonak PFE 132 appeared as well for $0. They are currently selling the 132 for $215. I can't find any info on the site about any sort of promotion like this. Anyone else seeing this? Is it a glitch?
I have SE535s and really like them. I really want to give Shure the benefit of the doubt and buy the 846, but the response graphs show an enormous bass boost, and the filters don't really drop the bass but boost the top side of the treble, creating a scooped rather than flat response. The white filter still leaves a 10db bass boost (twice as loud as it should be?). I was SO excited about these before they were released but am so bummed out now.
I have an Audinst Hud-mx1 that I've been using for about 2 years. I recently moved it from my office system to my home desktop. In my home setup something is creating a crackling sound. When I start my computer it's not there but something is triggering the crackling to start later. If I unplug the USB cable from the Audinst and plug it back in the crackling goes away, for a while, but it always comes back. I can't figure out what's going on. Anyone have a similar...
For sale is my XFX 7970 DD with an Arctic Accelero Xtreme cooler. Accelero keeps the card nice and cool. Card is basically silent with the Accelero but is not an amazing overclocker. Selling due to change to a micro ATX system and the cooler won't fit. I have the original box for the XFX and some extra pieces for the Accelero. I'm leery about shipping this card a long distance as the cooler does not have a backplate (cooler didn't come with one, rather than I lost it or...
Sold!
 Oops. the H100 isn't silent, I meant the PSU. For anything non-gaming, my refrigerator is louder than the H100i, but during games the fans do spin up a good bit but not helicopter level. I had a Noctua D14 so I'm used to quiet cooling and the H100i isn't too bad at all.
 Yep, I'm using the stock fans. Keeping voltage on adaptive seems to be keeping the temps down. The PSU is definitely too much but I saw a good local deal and couldn't resist. But who knows, maybe having a massive PSU is what's given me the bump in OC. My previous system had a Corsair AX850. The EVGA is also dead silent which is nice.
