    Phonak Audeo to close down?

    Yes, I completely forgot about that. I've only used them once or twice since then.

    Phonak Audeo to close down?

    I have a pair of Audeo 232 earphones hardly used if you're interested in buying. Almost new condition in original box.

    Choosing a DAC for iMac

    As long as you are willing to pay... Bowers and Wilkins MM1 speakers. I own them and can vouch for them totally.

    Choosing a DAC for iMac

    The D1 DAC is superior to the A2+ Built-in DAC. Plus it has a headphone port.

    Choosing a DAC for iMac

    Keep in mind that the A2+ speakers have a built in DAC already, so you could hold off on a separate DAC and see if you like the sound. If you then decide to get an external DAC,, it WILL override the A2+ DAC, which is what you would want anyway.

    Are JH-16's worth it?

    I think the fact that your conflicted about this is your answer. Since you have a baby on the way, put your resources there. There are many universal (and much cheaper) earphones that sound wonderful. The JH-13s are absolutely great. I have them, but I also have a few universals that sound 85%...

    Former Audiophile looking for IEM

    I've heard a few IEM's, both universal and custom. I am assuming you are going the universal route. If I had to give away all of my IEMs and keep one, it would be a toss-up between the Klipsch X10 or Grado GR10. Ironically, both are single armature. The Klipsch wins the comfort hands down. They...

    how to review headphones?

    I review earphones and headphones for I can only tell you how I do it. I use them almost exclusively for 1-2 months (including burn-in if necessary) and write my impressions. I also list the specs, although that's the least important part of the review. I listen to...

    Mastered for iTunes

    I downloaded the title track from Elton John's "Madman Across the Water" in Mastered for iTunes. I am listening to it through an external DAC and Atomic Floyd Super Darts earphones. I have to say, I am impressed. The quality may not match HD Tracks, but it sounds pretty darn good.  ...

    Angry at ear pain! (deciding on new iems)

    Try the Klipsch X10i. I can wear them all day and forget they are there. They are - hands down - the most comfortable pair of universals I have ever worn. Westone is a real close second.
