Thanks for the earphonesolutions tip.
I definitely notice when headphones sound better. I can easily tell the difference but I couldn't compare two. Like, if you gave me one pair and another I could say which I find to be better, but I couldn't tell you which had better highs, mids, lows, and that sort of stuff. I get the general idea of that, but I can't tell mids apart very well.
Oh ok I see. I just know a lot of people buy expensive cables and all sorts of crap based on good reviews, and it is debatable weather they make a difference or not. And other people some times listen to a headphone they actually don't prefer (less bass/less "fun" sounding) just because others have told them its "better". Every one perceives sound differently, If you listen and make the choice for your self you will be a lot happier.
Microphonics is noise from the cable, when you use the cord over your ear the sound sort of gets absorbed by your ear instead of being audible in the headphones.
My 215's took me about a week to figure out how to put them in right but now it is just second nature like any other IEM's
I like over the ear cables but I sort of miss my S4's that I could just toss in my ear and they would stay.
