    Shure KSE1500 Review - Shure KSE1500 Sound Isolating Electrostatic Earphones

    Lyala is just too expensive and not appealing enough for me so I went with the KSE 1500 and had mixed feelings about it. I drive it with an AK 380 via Line-out and also my iPhone via USB

    Shure KSE1500 Review - Shure KSE1500 Sound Isolating Electrostatic Earphones

    The iPhone USB source is actually an excellent source. It has better positioning properties of sound elements than the Line-in. You can use EQ to filter out the hisses. I also provide one Apple Lightning extension cable.

    AKG K3003 High End 3 Way System Headphone

    I would like to modify my K3003i to balanced cabling for the AK series player's balanced output. Is there any good suggestions? I mean either I find some one experienced at doing this or DIY. However, since I am pretty clumsy at soldering, I would rather find someone with the experience.

    Shure KSE1500 Review - Shure KSE1500 Sound Isolating Electrostatic Earphones

    Hi, what source are you using? I've been using the AK 380 with the volume set at line out and KSE with input padding -10dB.   However, I found that the end result is not as preferrable as simply connecting it to an iPhone 6 running the TEAC HR player.   The imaging of the sound stage is in...

    Shure KSE1500 Review - Shure KSE1500 Sound Isolating Electrostatic Earphones

    Hey, I have had the 1500 for a few months but I am having trouble with the short micro USB to lightning cable. I would like to know where to buy extended micro USB to lightning cable. Also, if other solutions like an extension cord are available.

    Astell&Kern AK380

    Just got my AK 380. Whenever I plug it in, my computer tells me that it could be plugged into USB 3.0. However the microUSB on the AK 380 is not the type that supports USB 3.0 . I heard that AK 380 could support OTG USB 3.0 portable Hard Drives. However I'd rather doubt it. Could some one clarify?

    AKG K3003 High End 3 Way System Headphone

    I highly suspect that I just bought an ultra high quality counterfeit one. The serial is 302xx. I have the original packaging box. It looks almost the same except that the wire above the Y section is not soft rubber but instead, much harder than a confirmed authentic K3003i my friend has. Could...

    Reply to review by 'audiofail' on item 'Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay H6'

    I absolutely loved it the second I put it on. However, the only con I could think of is that the original leather pad gives a loose and slightly buzzing bass. I would rather they make a replacement leather pad that would produce less bass, tighter bass and improve the crispness of the sound and...

    Is there a Portable headphone that wears as comfortable as the BOSE QC15 and sounds as clear and crisp like the B&O A8 ?

    I also tried the Beoplay H8. IMO the H8 actually is a downgrade on sound. The H6 is just right. I am right about my "prejudice". All Active noise cancelling headphones have a cramped and noisy rough sound which ruins everything.

    Ya, I'm in love with the Beoplay H6 now. Especially after switching to a customized cable without the remote.
