Back to the very basic, and here is my Sunday's exercise gear.

 

What's the best alternative to the earbuds for playing sports (hoops included)? The earbuds are not that bad for sports, but its bass sounds hollow and shallow after I am spoiled by my iem's.

I like the new earpods, but those olds buds killed my ears comfortwise...

Comfort is not an issue for the old buds, in fact much comfortable than most of ear-raping iem's. Yeah the new earpods may be a good alternative for exercise.

Now that summer is coming closer, I decided to bring out my old Triple fi 10, for occasions when I don't feel like caring a whole rig.

Also its not as hot as with an around-the-ear-style headphone.

W4's stuck in my ears like glue.  It probably depends on the size and shape of your concha, however!

The E11 don't add just only volume (for me necessary to bring out the potential of the Aurvana2),

but it add more naturality and "thickness" to the low frequencies, and even some clarity, so yes

there are a lot of improvements for me, both sound quality and volume.

Thank you! You inspired me to buy an amp/dac for my nexus 5 too.. Hope it brings new lease of life to my vsonics.

Earpods pretty good for exercise, try to put earbuds foam to make it more comfortable and seal.

Thanks for the suggestion and I will try the new earpods.

You have a lot of "low end" headphones. If I were you, I would sell all the low end cans and save towards one higher end headphone.

meh. Next year I'm just going to buy a k702 and an o2 amp or something. I just bought my k240's, and I plan to keep them. Plus, so says the guy who owns an ath m-50. That's worse than k240 for detail. Yes, I do also see your he-400. That's a really nice pair of cans. And, if I did sell everything, then I'd probably only get 100$ for it... And since I only paid 40$ for jvc ha-m55x's, and those give me head shaking bass thumping power, I think that's worth keeping for now. And I paid 60$ for my k240's and my dad paid the remaining 10$ and paid another 5$ for shipping. That's worth it too. So, all in all, I feel no need to sell anything.

The M-50s were what brought me into this mess hobby hahaha. It has long been sold xp

It was the AD700, first, for me. Bought it for gaming, which then led to buying the M50 for music.

About 20 headphones later... here I am... tongue.gif

wait until you decide to upgrade again to an he-6 or LCD-3 or something lol. Then you'll really be in this mess. biggrin.gif my JVC's are the thing that got me into being a basshead, and pumping as much bass as I can against my head,(5.5/8 volume with high gain and +2 bass boost on e11, with about +30 db of bass eq. That will rattle and shake like a motha.) and my k240'sare what got me into the more tame, neutral loving side. I can't choose either... All I know is that I hate v curves... Or maybe it's just my friends beats studios that I hate, and v curves actually sound good... I guess I'll have to try something else with a v curve sometime.
