After over five years, it appears my J3 is on its last leg. I'm looking for a replacement but having trouble finding what I want. Internal storage should be at least 32GB with additional storage via MicroSD. I prefer that it supports OGG as that is what a good portion of my files are in but it's not a deal breaker. The real killer is that it must have FM radio.   I've been looking at the Sony NWZ-A17 but is it true that if the battery dies and it's out of warranty you're...
The 598SE is currently 94.99 on Amazon. I'm really tempted to get them. However, I still own the 595s which I've had for over 10 years and they're still in great shape. I just don't know if I should bother upgrading at this point.
Well, not everyone has issues with the sound of the HD800. As an HD800 owner, with no mods, I'm perfectly satisfied with what I have. Are there newer headphones that sound better? Probably. Will the HD800s sound better? Maybe, but at this point in my life, my quest to achieve sound nirvana has ended. If there was only one improvement I would like for the HD800, it would be to make the ear pads easier to change!   As far as the HD800s goes, I actually prefer the original...
No, that's just my personal opinion! I actually showed them to a co-worker this morning and she thought they looked fine on me. She did admit though that they look a little unusual compared to other cans, especially since the cups are small but stick out somewhat. There are also a lot of visible parts on the DT1350 which I think draws your attention to them more than say Beats or Bose which are basically one single piece.
After over 10 years of listening, I'm trying to move away from IEM's for portable use. After lots of research, I narrowed my decision to the Senn Momentum and the DT1350, ultimately going with the DT1350. So far I have mixed feeling about them but that's probably because I've been so used to my Westone 3's. Using them with my Cowon J3, I'm finding I really need to crank up the volume. Where I used to listen at a volume of 18 -20, I now need to go up to 30 -34, and even...
LOL!   I've had my HD800s for four years now and mine still smell. I wouldn't necessarily refer to it as wet gym socks but it is kind of funky. I've always assumed it was coming from the case though, since I routinely leave them out for a week or more. I'll have to check when I get home from work later to see if I can discern exactly where the smell is coming from. As for the smell itself, it's not that overpowering and it's never hampered my listening enjoyment. It's...
I've been using IEMs for at least 10 years now and due to some major issues with ear wax recently, I've been considering switching to regular headphones for portable use. I currently use the Westone 3s so of course I want to find something of comparable quality. I'm wondering though if anyone else gave up using IEMs for something else after using them for years, what was the experience like and was it difficult to adjust? What IEM were you using and what did you switch to,...
The only recordings I've found unsuitable for the HD800 are those that are bass heavy, i.e. the bass is already over-emphasized and dominates the recording.
 Where are you getting this info from? There's nothing in the manual that indicates this. Plus, if you leave the power switch on all the time the LED on the volume wheel will always be on.
And what makes you think we aren't going to start seeing warnings on streamed movies? Or even worse, Netflix and Hulu logos in the corner?
