I juggle my Sennheiser HD650's between my Bottlehead Crack, Essence stx, and Focusrite Scarlett 2i2. The Crack is for listening to music, the stx is for surround, and the 2i2 is the only thing that will properly output my guitar from amplitube. My computer is setup for my couch instead of a desk, so it's a pain to plug and unplug whenever I need a different input. Is there an input switcher for sale, or that can be diy'ed without losing audio quality? I was thinking about...
I saw a YouTube video about interference being caused by being too close to one of (I'm having a brain cart and can't remember what they're called) big green boxes that the power companies work on that powers a neighborhood. Granted, the thing was in his backyard, but its a possibility. When in doubt, I've seen some decent furman power conditioners on craigslist for under $100. But you are correct, it is glorious. I had a power spike come through and mess up a driver on...
It's amazing how much a hum can drive you nuts. I was also told to try running a ground wire from the chassis of the crack to the power supply to eliminate one probable cause. Never needed to try it, but seemed interesting.
The cheater plug served its purpose while I used it. I finally quit being lazy and rearranged some furniture so I could use different plugs that run on different breakers. I still get a hum sometimes, but it goes away if I turn the Crack off then right back on. According to Doc I have a bad solder joint somewhere. I'm waiting until I order the speedball so I can install that, then I'll upgrade the existing wires, and reflow everything. So now I'm running...
Pretty sure it was a couple of bad rips. I've been comparing different songs played from different sources and amps, and comparing the 4r to the HD650. Aside from the sound stage and signature differences, it is coming out the same so far. I just picked mine up from Amazon for $380.
I'm going to keep checking on them. The static came through on my HD650s to on the same songs, so I want to be sure before I start putting in return requests.   As a side thought, has anyone reshelled their 4r's recently? I really like the idea of it, but I have heard from different people that the sound signature changes after the reshell. None of the ones I heard about weren't Westones, so I jsut want to get some opinions before I start looking into it.
Plugged directly into my phone, and with the adapter to both soundcard and amp. I was praying it wasn't defective. The only worse than waiting for package arrival is waiting for it a second time. Damn you cruel fate! Which would be better/quicker? Going through westone directly, or going back through amazon?
I just got my 4r's from Amazon today, and am loving them so far. I just have one question. Is it normal to hear some static on vocals when they're brand new? I started out with some mp3s on my phone, and chalked the static up to 128k mp3s. I tried them on my computer when I got home with flac files, both 16 and 24 bit, and was still getting it. Aside from the static, they sound great. My phone is an HTC evo 4g lte, and my computer has an Asus essence stx and a schiit...
That's the hardest part of making a decision between ciem vs uiem, single vs dual vs triple based on opinions of others. The best way I've found is to read multiple reviews about a pair, and if you read the same thing in all of them, it's more than likely true. The thing that really made me wonder was reading through the iem mega review. Out of 307 iem's, one of the top pairs was a single armature $269 Custom Art Music Ones. Single armature custom that is cheaper than a...
I have been doing reading on iem, and have seen numerous threads about reshells of universal iem's. Is there an advantage to buying universal to reshell vs a custom? I am trying to make a decision between a triple.fi 10 vs westone 4r vs westone um3x, and see that the price of them with a reshell would still fall short of a UE7 Pro for example. Are customs that much better, or is there a bang for your buck factor in reshells?
