    Problem with Idealsound

    Fate has a distinctly ironic sense of humor... So a couple of hours after I start my "Aak, Idealsound is ignoring me" thread, I get this e-mail from Paul with a Paypal invoice inclosed. So now I have a set of E5s on the way.

    Ebay Store Service

    I am currently attempting to purchase a pair of Shure 5cs from Paul. He was so very good with responses when I was asking him about the product, but is much slower when I actually want to, you know, buy the thing from him. There has been no response to my electronic missive sent last Friday, nor...

    Problem with Idealsound

    Hey. So after perusing the forums I decided upon the Shure 5cs as my headphones of choice. Okay then, sorry 'bout the wallet, but congrats on the audio glory. Seeing that Idealsound has them for $365 and is a forum sponser to boot, I was all set to buy from them. A problem arose though...

    DAP fantasy aka query about the Zen Xtra, Nomad 3, and IHP

    So after much research on this forum and on the Internet in general, I have decided that I would really like a Creative Nomad Zen Xtra with line out. ...Unfortunately, those don't actually exist. So it has come down to the Zen Xtra, Jukebox 3, and Iriver IHP. Based on my...

    Iriver Slimx IMP-550. So what do we think?

    Just took a look at that new IMP 900 and was highly impressed. If it is just an upgrade on the 550 with the same or better sound quality and sleeker lines, I am so there. I was also briefly considering the IMP 1000 as well, but as it has tons of features I'm not looking for in a cd player, I...

    Vacillating Neophyte Seeks Someone Who Knows What They Are Talking About

    So that third school came in today, and they want me as well. So, having gotten into every college I applied to (which I still can't figure out why), I feel I earned those Shure e5cs. But to lay off the excessive self-grandizing, I was wondering if anyone had any opinions about the Iriver...

    Haven't quite lost the PCDP bug...

    Hey there. Apparently there are some PCDP gurus residing in this thread. Note here that I am taking PCDP to stand for personal CD players. Please disregard this post if the acronyms instead mean "Pernacious Corpulent Desultory Pines" or something of that ilk. In any case, here be experts. I was...

    Iriver Slimx IMP-550. So what do we think?

    Interesting... Although, there is a new development in my quest, as posted in the Headphones forum. College decisions went really well (haven't gotten any bad news yet...) and parents are feeling generous. So I'm not that concerned with the price of the Iriver 550. I am just wondering if there...

    Vacillating Neophyte Seeks Someone Who Knows What They Are Talking About

    So college decisions came in today and I am SO getting the Shure e5c's! Parents are ecstatic, (I am in a state of shock, probably will hit the ecstatic state somewhere in the next few days) that two of my three reach schools said yes. The third school though, is not a fan of this newfangled...

    Iriver Slimx IMP-550. So what do we think?

    Having just subscribed to these forums for a few days, I have swiftly gone from planning to spend about $180 for the Shure e3's to being convinced that I would be lacking a vital part of my life unless I could get my hands on a pair of ($400) Shure e5c's. Since I am planning (hoping) to get...

    Vacillating Neophyte Seeks Someone Who Knows What They Are Talking About

    Alright. So after some more consideration, I think I may be leaning towards the Shure e5c. Yeah, that wallet is totally going out the window and I blame this forum. The graphical interpretation would be: Head-fi forum = to the th power Anyways, there are some factors involved in this...

    Vacillating Neophyte Seeks Someone Who Knows What They Are Talking About

    To clarify a little bit about my situation regarding piracy and bitrates and whatnot: Most of my Chinese music, about 90% or more I would say, is composed of CDs that I bought from various music stores around New York City. All of my English music, of which I have much less. is original. My...

    Vacillating Neophyte Seeks Someone Who Knows What They Are Talking About

    Greetings from a newbie, Thanks to the wonderful cultural phenomenon that is the graduation present, I now have the opportunity to build for myself a quite pleasent quasi-audiophilic sound system. After some (extensive) words of wisdom from the almighty Internet, I thought I was prepared to...
