Thanks Jude, it is nice to have the clarification. Perhaps for all such future contests it might be nice to have it explained why such restrictions are in place. As I said, at least that way people will know the rationale behind the decisions. It is only normal for people to feel dissapointed when they realise they are excluded from contests of this nature. As for the head-fi membership, are any of you laywers in any of the jurisdiction that are inelligble? If so, it would be a great service to the community (and perhaps yourself) if you could undertake the legal inquiry required by head-fi to allow for contest prizes to be awarded in your country. Just a thought. Cheers.

I will first start by declaring that I'm no audiophile, and that this is just a review coming from an average consumer. I know a lot of you will facepalm by my review, but I will post it...
The CAL! 2 is a big improvement over the first version. Creative brands this as a "premium headphone" on the box, but is it? First thing I noticed was the soundstage. It's MUCH better than...
As nicely explained by Victor in his review of the same CIEM, this is the previous flagship model from FitEar. In fact, unless you are married to the emphasised bass of the MH335DW, this would...
First of all, I am not a audiofile with several pairs of $1,000 headphones. I am more of a casual listener but I do like good sound. This is also my first review on head-fi so give me some feedback...
I love these headphones! So comfortable you will forget you're wearing them. My cousin once commented "This is the best bass I've ever heard in a headphone!" While I know there are headphones out...

"It's all about the little things" is phrase that describes what my headphones say about me. I use VSonics GRO7 IEMs which utilize over a hundred individual layers of 0.001μM bio-cellulose to make up their 11mm dynamic drivers. This especially interests me because I have been very interested in nanotechnology for quite some time now, and Nanotechnology is actually my selected academic major. For years I read about cutting edge developments in nanotech and wondered when I would actually see these technology in consumer products. The GR07, among several others out there now, unified my love for audio and nanotechnology and it is because of this technology that these IEMs sound as amazing as they do.
I use my GR07s to produce music from my iPad, which also goes along with the concept of "little things". GR07s are one of the few dynamic IEMs designed for reference sound, so they are a great choice for portable music production. Below is a picture of my "studio" and you can listen to my sounds at soundcloud.com/l-i-7 if you like. I am only an amateur at production and it is really just a hobby at this point, but it is a lot of fun. Please don't misjudge the GR07s by any technical flaws in my music, that is strictly due to my own inexperience. If I win I will make a track using the Heir 4.Ais and will name it "Heir to Artificial Intelligence".. or something of that nature.

Thanks for clarification. For everyone else - I'll just remind those who have already entered but not read 'the rules' - apparently besides being resident in US, you also have to be 18 or older. Just highlighting this, as I know how many junior members we have.
I'll bow out now.
My headphones cry, 'Nostalgia" but Stylin' :P
I have a pair of Shure Se115 that I happened to snag right on the edge of going extinct, and the UE MetroFi 220s. How I miss those UEs. That had a nice dash of sparkling high.
Also that I'm in need of an upgrade in the next month

My TripleFi 10s says a lot about me. Let's be honest, they didn't win any awards for comfort or style but it does a spectacular job at providing excellent sound. For those who know the earphones, it easily says quality of music at the sacrifice of nothing else. It says to others that this person didn't buy this headphone to have the best-looking earphone or to feel the most comfortable - he bought it to listen to music.
It is one of the best earphones in its price range and reflects my qualities of frugality and audiophilia well.
Wow! I have to enter this, as I'm going through something of an "audial existential crisis".
I think my Denon AH-D7000s say that I'm an introverted, "homebody" audiophile, sustaining a relationship with music that would befit a hopeless romantic -- someone who sits and stays with the love of their life for years, rather than traveling around with them. Historically, I have sought to deepen my relationship with music through solitude and a fiery inner imagination; to gain wisdom through reflection, rather than grow and explore and dance with it with the kind of wary but delighted grace that a person would embody in their youth.
However, in truth, I am young. I would be persisting in a delusion to remain an old soul in a lad's frame. I've been searching for the kind of headphone that I think matches who I really am, or want to be: a lush, bright, moveable piece of music in my own right, to match the rich inner life my Denon D7Ks have helped me create. :)

my pfe112 says this to me: "it's been a long journey but we are the perfect match for each other.. i provide great isolation from the construction noise next to your cubicle, i provide the comfort in your ears.. and i provide the detailed sound and punchy bass those fxt90's and re0's couldn't give you.. wait.. what's that? you've just ordered a pair of blox tm7's??"
As a professional music mixer and live show playback engineer sound is crucial, I just finished up a tour with Trey Songz, his whole crew uses Logitec Ultimate ears I would love to show off a sick pimped out pair of Heir 4.Ai's the next time I go out on tour with them. I spend many hours in front of my NS10's, my ears are tuned and have become very attuned at picking out specific frequencies I would love to have a trick pair of Heir 4.Ai's that translate when I am mixing the next big hit when I am on the road.
Let's see... What do my Sennheiser HD598s say about me. I gotta say that fell into my personality surprisingly well. Like me these are not a pair of headphones you likely take to parties due to their sound leaking nature and polarizing design. Like them I prefer my privacy to parties, and I tend to be polarizing to people at first impression. Just like the sound of the 598s people will find me to be an engaging person with a laid back attitude. Sometimes I'll say something rather cheesy much like the promotional spiel for the 598s. Once you get to know me I will be a comfortable person to be around apart from a few people who find me unbearable.
Here's to hoping that lightening can strike twice. Thanks for the chance.
my headphones say that i mean business about music while being stylish at the same time. Makes a statement in a crowd but not by its flashyness but by its class. The sound signature of my headphones also says alot about me, balanced as we are not bound by sound limits but warm enough to be intimate.
You can tell how hot and how much people like your work. I've entered two or three headphone contests on head-fi and this is the first one I've seen that's drawn so many lurkers out of the wood works to make their first post. You are right in saying the industry leaders are playing catch up to your artwork.
