    Paradigm headphones, earbuds, headsets coming this Spring?!

    I went to visit Paradigms website and I found this...  Paradigm Shift It doesn't tell you much, but this is kinda exciting if you ask me. I own a pair of SE1's and an SE sub.

    Decent headphones for work, <$100

    another vote for the ATH-ES7, I really don't see how they're so uncomfortable to others. I guess they could use velvet instead for leatherette. But they really did seem fine for me for 40 minutes.

    Cabling actuality

    I tried ALO cable from 32 OHM on my JH5's, I noticed a difference right away. Larger sound stage, more energy (faster sounding) and improved overall clarity. It's not night and day change, but being really skeptical, it is defiantly worth the extra $$$.

    Most comfortable noise-cancelling headphones [<~$2,000 USD]

    According to all graphs D5000 > D7000...

    those graphs are for reference value NOT the final outcome. Also your ears are going to hear a very different story. Anyways, who that heck would listen to sine generators all day?1

    What's better than Audio-Technica ATH-M50??

    try putting them around a tissue box over night (narrow side) I have to do that with a few headphones. So far, it has worked.

    Shure or Westone ?

    Personally I'd favor the westones, they'll also last you a lot longer.

    Do I have bad ears? Bad earbuds? Asking before I give up on portable music.

    HELP!! IEM Decision needed

    The Ortofon e-Q7 are the best sounding universals I have heard by far. But since I have gone with customs, I will never go back to universal. It really sounds like the JH's are for you. I have the JH5's and they sound darn good for what they are. Imagine what the JH13's sound? And just look...
