The first one, I didn't even bother, or rather, I'd didn't even get the chance to. The second person got a decent fit, but he tends to not loop the cable over the ear, so they still fell out a lot.

Here is my short review of the HOOKA headphone hanger. Thank you to Pandora from Brainwavz for providing me with the product. This very cool headphone hanger came in a nice, small sized...
The Emotiva DC-1 Stealth DAC is frankly, an incredible value. The only other products I can think of that offers such a complete and capable skill set for such a low cost are the Koss KSC75,...
This is a very comfortable headphone (not ideally so, but close enough) and once you get used to the clap force, you barely notice it's on. The sound quality is amazing. I have compared this...
First of all, thank you to @ejong7 for arranging for me to be included in this review tour. I am in no way affiliated with Obravo or any retailer. I am head-fi hobbyist and music lover...
Where do I start? These honestly sound like the HD600/650 in IEM form. My previous go to IEM was the Klipsch X10 ($100), followed by the Klipsch X20i ($539). What is amazing, is that the RE-400...

Gave my KSC75 to girlfriend, who'd previously used the low-cost Sennheiser PC 31 headset as her main headphones. I tried the PC 31 prior to this, and though the response was relatively even, the sound was very lacking with music. I thought for sure the KSC75 would be an improvement for her.
In the end, "they're smooth" (said in an underwhelmed tone) was what she found the difference to be.post #4953 of 643110/5/12 at 8:32ampost #4954 of 643110/5/12 at 11:00ampost #4955 of 643110/7/12 at 11:59pmpost #4956 of 643110/8/12 at 5:30ampost #4957 of 643110/8/12 at 5:08pmpost #4958 of 643110/8/12 at 7:08pmpost #4959 of 643110/8/12 at 7:23pmpost #4960 of 643110/8/12 at 8:29pm
Well, it's more from being a musician for years than from my years of audiophilia, but I hear out to 14 kHz in my left ear and 16 kHz in my right ear. While it's certainly possible that many of the head-fiers in this thread have better hearing than I have and that many of the ibud users have worse hearing, it's not far-fetched that many casual music fans would have better hearing than many of us here at Head-fi. It doesn't necessarily mean they have better ears for actually picking out better sound, but they are likely to have better hearing.post #4961 of 643110/9/12 at 9:05amQuote:Originally Posted by jazzerdave

I see what you're saying, now. You originally said they "have better ears," which I thought you meant frequency perception. A lot of non music-lovers probably have better hearing, but that's like having a Z06 and not knowing how to drive a stick. So, what does that really matter?post #4962 of 643110/9/12 at 9:54amQuote:Originally Posted by Origin89

Well, the "better ears" comment wasn't really mine, I just outlined what I assumed to be the meaning of the better ears comment. Personally, I agree the Z06 analogy; it doesn't really matter.post #4963 of 643110/9/12 at 11:06amQuote:
Hah, it wasn't yours, huh. I automatically thought it was him responding. I'm with you, though.post #4964 of 643110/10/12 at 9:07amQuote:Originally Posted by ramicio
I wish there would be a headphone or audio store where you could:
1. Listen to ever selection.
2. Bring your own source.
3. Pair them up with other products you may be purchasing that might be in the audio.
I have hesitated on buying any headphone worth a bunch of money because all I have to go on is reviews on the internet. If I buy something and don't like it I have to deal with shipping, and they don't cover shipping stuff back. Even a small local store I would support if they carried a huge line of stuff to be able to hear, and I would pay more for it.
Bay Bloor Radio in Toronto, Ontario, Canada has such a setup. I go there all the time to test and evaluate headphones; especially the HD800.post #4965 of 643110/10/12 at 9:11amQuote:
i got there also
they got quite a few headphones and iems to try
however its a bit noisy there sometimes so open back headphones are a harder to listen to
