I literally fried mine in a plane by being too curious. Why is my ear getting hot? *funny smell* One channel burnt out. Fortunately I had my K319 also with me so I wasn't without music on the trip.

I  know that k317 has same sound as k319, they just  don't have the volume control. Can't find a good replacement of k317 on the online store I use.
I  liked especially k317 treble & soundstage. I know that the pmx 980 are discontinued too, the only reason that they don't disappear fast, is their price. .

Short answer: depends. Mine would be no, not if you can get Blox M2C. Besides, most people find the MX880/980 really big and uncomfortable, I know I do.

As for quality, the K319 isn't too thrilling in any department so upgrading should be easy, even my AS-sunrise sound better ;-)

 

Personal fave is M2C, as comfortable as the 317 but with a ton better sound and a super price... once they are available again or we get another group buy.

 

edit: also really curious about the new BLOX, I hope they go for a great price again. Seriously, small nigglings apart I found the M2C to be near perfect and I still liked them next to €4k Monitor audio towers :-P

I  don't know I  liked my k317 a lot (supposed to be same as k319).
I'm not thrilled by many of supposed superior headphone, so there's a also a matter of taste.

I will just get the yamaha eph-100 soon, I hope they'll have some pleasing highs, and that they are enough comfy.

Well, I'm not ClieOS, but I can give you a few suggestions.

 

I've got this one, and this one. They both serve their purpose well.

 

If you want to be with the in-crowd, you can get this one or this one.

I have a few fake Beat hard case from eBay, dirt cheap and well built so no complains here. For the more expensive variety, Shure soft case and the Westone monitor vault is okay. as well. Of course if you are the adventure type, Otter box 1000 series is relative cheap on eBay as well, but not nearly as good looking as Pelican box.

As I wrote in another earbud thread:

 

If anyone's interested in a pair of Sony MDR-E282 and is able to replace defective cables, there's a pair up for auction here: http://www.ebay.de/itm/SONY-MDR-E-282-GOLD-mit-BOX-TASCHE-for-DIGITAL-10-25-000-Hz-SPITZENMODELL-/350602634828?pt=Kopfh%C3%B6rer&hash=item51a18ba64c

 

I'm not affiliated with the seller, I just like finding vintage earbuds. If someone is able to fix the cable, it is a great pair of vintage Sony earbuds...

I am definitely interested, but that guy only ships within Germany, I think.
post #219 of 679

man those look cool. I'm willing to bet they are too large for me though :(

post #220 of 679

I bought my pair of E282 from a German seller. Just ask if they ship outside of Germany and to the country where you live. Most sellers don't have a problem with that. But many German sellers like this one don't use Paypal, and instead you have to transfer money to their bank account. I have not had any problems yet, and I've bought both vintage earbuds, MP3 players and a cellphone from Germany. AND a turntable AND a DVD-player...

 

The E282 and E484 are pretty big, but not in the same way as the Sennheiser MX980. They are quite light and stick well in your ears.

 

The E282 was sold between 1985-1990. To me, the only earbuds that beat it is the MX980 and TM7...
