Thanks for the alert. I'm in, but need to know when. I'll bring my usual collection of neat junk. The MDR-F1 was a big hit last time, but seeing your faces on hearing the K270 was priceless!
Whoops, was on the CAD mouser site... hey they have $8 USPS shipping to Canada now!
The boys at the Ety "NRB" thread say the Ety greys are not the same as the Knowles greys:   But the greens are the same.  BTW the cheapest source I found for these filters is Westone where they are $2ea and $6.25 for US shipping.  However, Ety will ship internationally for $2 in...
FWIW I also agree that hardware can definitely affect the quality of a BT headphone. I mean after decompressing apt-x or A2DP/SBC, there's still got to be an amplifier section that can make or break the sound quality. My personal example is my car, which has a spectacular sound system yet manages to ruin BT audio somehow. Without knowing the system architecture, it's not fair to blame the lack of apt-x, but it's all I have to go by as my BT source is apt-x.
Follow-up: a few days after the above, I bought a Sennheiser MM450x which has apt-x. Then somehow my BlackBerry Q10 magically got apt-x. I gotta say, this is a killer combo. Can't go back to A2DP like in my car!
I also got an E7 with a dead battery.  Opened it up and checked - 0.01V.  Dead.  Don't even bother charging it or *poof*!  Refund on the way, so I get a free E7 for the price of a new battery... that's a good deal!   BTW, Beyer DT880 and 990 600ohm on sale at NCIX $250 and $260CAD respectively.. great prices!
Hi.  I didn't see any coherent thread for these awesome headphones so thought I'd start with one.   Overall: Currently these are the best BT, NC, highly portable headphones out there. Nothing else comes close except maybe the MM550X (not tested). But I am watching for UE's next UE9000. The UEs have the better sound, but weaker NC and Logitech-like finish lose it a lot of points.  The Zik is huge!   Tips: - Buy some AKG K450 pads from ebay for about $7.  They are much...
Oh maybe you can tell us if the Ety filter is the same as the knowles browns. A page or 2 back I posted my comparison of Ety vs grey which is all I have. The Ety filters are green plastic housings with filter material that looks beige or brown. I have SE530 not 535 so I can't really compare with impressions here of brown or green filters on the 535. I think they are similar to one of these two. And as I mention before, you can get 4 filters and a tool direct from Etymotic...
Yes, I've put the green-shelled Ety filters in my SE530.
BTW if anyone in Canada wants 3 grey filters (originally from LeeC -thanks) PM me!
