    Custom earmolds for Ety ER-4P/S

    I've owned Ety 4Ps for a couple of years now, while I enjoyed them, I could never get 100% comfortable with them. The problem is my ear canals are slightly different in size. With the white flange, I had comfort problems with my left ear. After 1/2 hour or so the canal would get sore, it felt...

    Custom ear moulds for my ETYs - Sensaphonics or Westone?

    Hi, After a couple of years with my Ety 4-Ps, I am now ready to get custom ear moulds. I can only wear the 4Ps for an hour w/out discomfort in one ear, it is smaller or shaped differently than the other. I see a couple of different mould makes (Sensaphonics & Westone - there are probably...

    Just got my 'new' Sony D-5

    I bought a D-5 off of EBay ($20) - the seller said it was in near mint condition. Well, he was right, not a scratch on the baby, even came in the original box. One of the nice touches is the box still had the original Sony punch card in a sleeve on the side. Hadn't seen one of these in a while...

    D-10 playing problem

    I can't remember how far it was into the CD when I paused it (if I did at all). If you think it would be useful, I can do a re-lube job. Recommended?

    D-10 playing problem

    Duncan, I hadn't thought of that so when I got back in my office today, I unplugged the unit & then replugged. I threw a disk in & hit play - the disk spun for several seconds, and then stopped. I thought I'd try again & count the seconds so I hit play again & off it runs - it didn't stop...

    My initial impressions of the V6s (or why I love my Etys)

    Got my wife a pair of V6s for Christmas, along with a Sony D-25s & replacement pads (Beyer's). The pads didn't make it for Christmas, more on that in a minute. This setup is for her at work. I had her open the V6s in the airport Christmas Eve, I wanted to throw out her trashy phones and...

    Do I open a gift for someone else before they do?

    Life is full of decisions. I own & use HD 580s & Ety 4Ps, along with a nice JMT built META 42 and an outstanding selection of music (if I may say so myself) - I'm in sonic heaven. My wife uses crappy phones through her computer, so for Christmas I got her a new rig: a Sony D-25S, a new set of...

    Impressions: Sony MDR-V6 Vs. Sennheiser HD-280 Pro

    Great review, Lobstersan! Well written & imformative, the pixs were useful. Ordered a V6 for my wife last week, should be coming in time for Christmas (to match a Sony D-25s present). Can't wait to give them a listen. FWIW, I order Beyer's velour pad mod. ps - your ears don't look fat...

    Buy/Sell forum...

    I'm responding to Jude's question back on page 4 regarding whether or not the site should allow auctions. I really enjoy the Buy/Sell forum - I've used it to buy nearly 10 things over the past year. Never had a problem, it is a great service. If someone is will to pay a price for an item...

    PayPal Woes....

    Hi, As a somewhat frequent user of PayPal, I've always had good luck. However on another Board that I frequent, a discussion on the woes people have had with PayPal was an eye opener. I'd recommend, either close your account or at minimum, close any direct account to a checking or savings...

    McCormack MID Competition?

    Hi, The McCormack Micro Integrated Drive (MID) is the perfect solution to a problem I have - I can't always wear phones in my office and I'd like to have an amp that not only can drive my headphones but also drive some efficient speakers. Since they are discontinued, they are difficult to...

    Right closed phone for around $100...

    My wife listens to a crappy setup at work (some cheap Sony's through her PC). She's not going to appreciate the top end, but anything else will be better. So far I've got her a Sony D-25S for a source and would like to add some good phones to go with it. The key is comfort and sound quality...
