THE ONE you've been looking for

Posted

Pros: Great sound, good build quality, quite comfortable for long listening sessions

Cons: Price, "regular" sized cable, In-line controls only work for Apple devices

If you're looking for a great headphone that has good bass without being muddy or sluggish along with amazing vocals that can touch the highest of highs, this is the headset for you.   Pros: Sound so good, it should be illegal. :) Really enjoyable. Sound has good balance. I have a pair of Shure SE315s which I love for the quality of sound they have but I only dislike their lack of bass when listening to something along the lines of rock. This headset maintains the quality that my Shure's have and adds the perfect amount of bass. I love it. Good build quality. It's made with good leather which is really soft so comfortable around the ear. The cups are made of a hard...

These S(h)ure are great IEMs!

Posted

Pros: Sound Quality, Comfort, Design, Isolation

Cons: Price, Minor design flaw with the wire plug

Backstory: (skip if not interested :)) I never liked IEMs. Never found them comfortable. They gave decent sound quality at best when they had a good fit but the fit wouldn't stay. If it did, it wouldn't be comfortable. I never found the perfect IEM. So I stuck with regular earbuds and for a long time, I was fine with it until I wasn't. I first came over on head-fi because I was considering the Bose IE earphones which were incredibly comfortable and from my 2 day experience of the one my friend had, it produced a good "warm" sound. It was going to be my first 100 USD pair so I thought I should check head-fi especially considering the bad rep Bose generally has.   I read...

Sansa Clip+: The greatest portable music player in it's weight class!

Posted

Pros: Good sound, small size, light, portable, extendable memory

Cons: Battery life is good but could be better.. UX could be a tad better. Packaging is a (one time) pain to open

  It's a great music player that is portable and has a clip to be used while on-the-run. It works well and is simple to use. It supports MP3 and FLAC, the two main formats I love and allows drag drop of music into it. It also connects as a PnP device as well as in managed mode using WMP giving you options on how you want to manage your music.   Over all, it's a great music player. Best at it's price point (as a small portable music player in the iPod shuffle/nano range as opposed to the full display type players). It's so good that when I lost my first player (I gave it to a friend who forgot to pick it up after lunch :/), I went out and bought it again. And do...
