Well, you got me there Wayne! If only the Bassos had a remote... Would've been perfect.

Oh just a heads up meng, these S2s are semi-open back and although sound does not leak in that much, if you wear these on the go isolation/ sound quality would not be the most ideal. 

 

They sound best in more quiet settings/ environments.

His name is Andres Segovia.(1893-1987) A master of the classic guitar.  I have never heard classical guitar played quite like this guy..Look up this mans music and take a listen. I only wish his early works had better recordings but you can find stuff he did during the 60s 70s that has some old school stereo tech in the recordings. Nothing short of brilliance.

Your acoustic guitars for the night..

I studied Classical guitar as a teen and used to play a few of his pieces. Indeed, a man of brilliance. Something fascinating to listen to is a CD which contains him talking about his life. It's not music, but it's so cool to listen to the guy talk about his past and how he came to play the guitar. I'm afraid I don't know what the CD is, but I'm sure someone could find it.

Speaking of incredible music, you should try some of the Jazz stuff. I was listening to Dave Brubeck in bed last night and my jaw was glued to my chest. The dynamics! Especially in the drumming. Man, you have to hear it. I love the music itself, too, just brings back the feel of those old Charlie Brown animations.

Next incredible thing: Hans Zimmer soundtracks. If anyone wants to hear incredible bass, look no further than this man. It's not Phat Beatz 'n' shiz like in your electro music; it's deep, rumbling epic bass. I recommend the Inception soundtrack, although to be perfectly honest I've been enjoying Kung Fu Panda's soundtrack the most lately. Listen to the track "Sacred Pool of Tears". Soooooo good.

Oh, another brilliant guitarist you should check out is Django Reinhardt, DS. Downright incredible, especially considering that he lost the use of his fourth and fifth fingers on his fretting hand in a fire, so played guitar using only two fingers. The quality of his recordings are usually not very good, though, since he was from an earlier era.

I plan to use them at work which is fairly quiet. Might be a problem at the gym tho.... But considering its price, i dont wanna risk damaging them. might just settle with the SHE3650 when I'm at the gym.

Things are built le a tank, so I wouldn't worry about damaging them. Sweat, though, is another problem. Btw, they isolate pretty well so it should be no problem even in loud areas.

That will be up to you all and I have also noticed an increase in fidelity and dynamics on the sounds with more and more use.

 

Burn your S2 or whatever phones you have using the X3 and also condition the battery.. Full use, to burn in earphones and X3 to battery depletion. Full recharge and repeat...The S2s need a big burn and so it seems does the X3.

Dude, come on. what kind of manufacturer would burn in an electric device?

Speaking of Jazz guitarist, this is one of my favorites, 

Mark Whitfield feat. Diana Krall Early Autumn

 

http://grooveshark.com/#!/search/song?q=Mark+Whitfield+feat.+Diana+Krall+Early+Autumn

 

Krall never sounded this good. Whitfield's guitar playing is subdued, to match the pace of the song, but spot on.

Mombasa ftw. Another great track by Zimmer is Why So Serious from the Dark Knight soundtrack. About halfway through, the bass gets re-donk-ulous basshead.gif

Just received the A161P and ordered the Noontec Zoro HD.  This forum is killing me.

Dayum, want to buy UE500's replacement tips (or even the UE500's themselves) but worried about fakes and worst of all, the guaranteed real stuff doesn't ship to Oz... sigh :(
 

post #13528 of 32897

I have the UE500's and tried the tips on the M200's and they do not fit as well as the UE900 tips. 

 

If you go to the Comply website, they have tips that fit the M200's.  Just find it using the tip finder tool.

Do they look the same shape and design but just different color? Or different shape/design altogether?

 

I think I may have been wrong in presuming the UE400/UE500/UE600 (newer revision)/UE700 come with the same tips. Logitech may have just been using a generic image depicting the same set of clear tips on their respective technical specifications pages out of laziness.

I'll confirm once I get home but they are slightly different in shape, design and thickness of the silicone.
