Not sure where the D2 one is from, but Gariz.com has lots of iPod metal stickers.

Got the sticker from a store down here in Melbourne.

I like to add some bling to my stuff

When can i expect a detailed review on the Abi homepage?

I need to compare sound to my Lw's, to see if maybe oneday they will be worth the upgrade to when Lw's are no more, and i am not 15, but 25.

Maybe by then I will have tried lossy vs lossless amped through a very good source, unlike directly through my U Control hp/o, or an amped laptop hp out, unlike when i tried the SM3 through the ZVM's bad l/o and laptop hp/o, then maybe i will hear a bigger difference, have 100mb/s internet, and be able to re-get my whole collection in lossless rather fast, of course everyone will have a need to tag before upload then, and i wont have to do that, then i buy a high end portable amp for u control use or an amp/dac for portable/pc/laptop use, and UE11's, along with a K701/Ad2000/SA5k or something for PC use and gaming, and occasional "I-dont-want-these-things-stuck-in-my-ear-canals" use.

I am no audiophile, i just like good highs, then if possible good bass, and the LW's fit the bill perfecty, totally balanced IMHO, and also the custom-comfort that only we custom users can try to explain to universal users, and sound great with 96k-320k+ bitrates to my ears, although slightly clearer on some songs with the higher bitrates. So how much better can UE11's be for the extra $950 ($1200 to me, complimentary LW's )?
I am no audiophile either, just a discerning listener who enjoys nice sound and trying to compare the sound signatures is part of the fun. That said, I thoroughly enjoyed the se530s and if I had deeper pockets I'd love to still own them. Yes, I know I skipped a few steps from them to the ue11s, but I felt that I would be there eventually. I think the International Head-Fi Ft. Lauderdale CanJam ue special made my decision sooner, by getting a much better price than you stated

Not sure when I’ll write something about them, for now I’m just really enjoying the ue11s and just say the difference is night and day between the two. Take one wild guess which is better

They should make a few universal's for people to test before they decide.

When spending that much the TF10 wouldnt be close enough or reliable enough for me to make a decision.

Some say the TF10 is better than the LW's, so maybe the UE11 is even better, but its opinion really.

I cant understand how much better it can get from LW's.

Nice pic.

Well that will sound lovely! I'd wear a man purse if I had a portable rig like that...
post #673 of 1377
well I had the old white D2 with the broken switch so I bought an 8gb black one off of someone here. Here's the Zune theme, and it's playing Korn unplugged.
