Can you explain in more detail what this system consists of? Or how it works?

Yes it would be nice to have a CIEM cable that combines the push-to-hear device with a standard 3-button remote/mic. Both push-to-hear and phone calls can share the same mic.

However, given the level of isolation in CIEMs you still might not be able to have a conversation with someone without removing them from your ears.

I'm not using it with any idevice, unless they'll start accepting flac soon. And you are right, but combining the faint noises with some lipreading I'll probably have a basic idea what the person is trying to say :p

This does sound incredibly convenient but would it harm SQ alot?

One way to find out I guess...

On iPhone and iPod Touch you can install third party apps that support FLAC. The downside is that those apps aren't as well integrated into iOS, so 1) if you shut down the app, or it needs to shut down to clear up RAM for other apps, you lose your place in the music and have to browse to find what you were listening to, and 2) if the app is not open and you press the play button on your remote, the stock app starts playing, not your chosen app.

I don't see why it should. The mic/remote has its own wire (the 4th contact in a 3.5mm plug) so it shouldn't affect anything when the buttons aren't being pressed.

That's exactly it!
For me anyway.
It would be so useful in so many mobile situations that I'd pay quite a premium to be able to do this.
The fact that the Shure PTH works with any device makes it especially desirable, it's a shame it's no longer available :-(

Does anyone knows when is the CE skype open anyway?

 

Does it have operating hours?

And do you skype msg or do you skype call them?

 

EDIT: Never mind. He replied me through msg. I just sent a msg expecting no reply though.

Yeah that's way too much hassle for me! That is why I just bought the sansa clip zip, I also have hisoundaudio player that does flac well.

 

EDIT: I'm not a flac snob, I just have a lot of flac in my music library. Ripping bought albums in mp3 just feels wrong!

Personally I love FLAC its a vast difference from 320 and I agree its sad when you buy a cd and it gets downgraded. Does anyone know a music converter program much like dbpoweramp that is free if not I might just buy it

What do you want to convert into what?

 

Btw there really is no vast difference between flac and 320 kbps, considering the 320 kbps hasn't been tempered with otherwise (gain for instance). Just try a blind test, there is a thread somewhere on head-fi supporting this test. I couldn't even make out the difference between the lower rate mp3s and flac. Disclaimer: the music was some sort of simple dance music. Very simple music is much easier to compress, take any rock song in 128kbps and it sounds like utter junk.

 

But still there might be a tiny tiny audible difference, that is why I personally still use it :p

Well mainly for purposes of converting albums I rip to 320 or FLAC depending on how much I like the album or not and I'm gunna try that test and see whats up.
