  1. Kindle, Wi-Fi, 6" E Ink Pearl Display

    First the Kindle, second the audio   The Kindle is great if you like to read. It looks like a read piece of paper in front of you while also not being a book. I use mine to read translated Light Novels and Manga. You can place PDF or use the converter Calibre to convert PDF over to the Epub and the kindle can use it's full features. The features include: It reads to you, size font and size of text area, motion the text side to side and note and bookmarks for later. PDF can't do as much and I was lacking this. To read manga on a kindle, you...
  2. Fostex T50RP Closed Ear Stereo Headphones

    3.50 star(s)
    I'll be posting a thread reveiw for these later, but here's the short:   Pros: Amazing Mids - beats out $500 headphones Great Highs - Close to Grado, about Sr80i Good design to play with   Cons: Bad design - can be fixed with mods. Cups and headband would be a dream. Bad cup design - play with it for a while and the sound improves 1/4inch without adapter. Not much of a problem, but at this price I expect a 3.5mm jack with an adapter   Get these headphones if you love Acoustics, Classical, Some rock, Metal, older music and you...
  3. Koss PortaPro - Headphones ( semi-open )

    3.00 star(s)
    I bought these after I bought my Grado SR80i, so comparison will ensue   Audio: They say the same drivers as the... Clip on Koss headphone - too lazy to steal them from my mother But the Koss PP are more bass and are clearer Good highs Lacking mids, but there Good heavy bass, but little muddy Great for a starter hifi and will give you the "I never heard that before" feeling in your music   Design: Horrible. Seriously You don't notice the top band, but you have to adjust to your head every time you get them out so long assembly...

    Buying these, changed the way I listen to music   I HATE THESE HEADPHONES, THEY TURNED ME INTO A AUDIOPHILE they taught me that there is more to music, then what I was listening to   Before, on my Senn HD 201s, I could hear the music These, make me listen to the music   I hear sounds and tones that before, I didn't know existed in the music the sound stage is wide and amazing   Cover one side of the open phones and the music cuffs out. because of their design, they leak sound I don't care about leaking   The headphones...
  5. SanDisk Sansa e260 4 GB MP3 Player with MicroSD Expansion Slot (Black

    2.50 star(s)
    This was my first mp3 player   I bought this 5 years ago, I guess.   I loved it, it had a thick metal back, an actual movable wheel for interface and volume, easy controls, played audio in amazing quality (back then), and had so many features more then a ipod (back then)   Problems: The mic button is finicky and if you touch it, the music stops and it records. It'll take you around ten miniutes trying to get out of recording The plastic screen collects scratches. The expansion never worked for me, i didn't really care The...
  6. Sennheiser HD 201 Headphones

    I have to say this, these are one of the worst headphones I have ever had.   To start the comfort is horrible. I have long hair, curly so it all bundles together. Older headphones slid through my hair, these grab every single lock and tear it off my skull. They are not slanted, to they can slid behind you head all the time. The cushions are cheap and won't last very long. They do not adjust easily, I have two clicks on one side and three on the other side. They will irritate your ears because of the non-slant in the design. The top pad is soft...
  7. Sony MDREX36V/BLK EX Earbud Headphone (Black)

    These headphones caught my eye when I wanted to buy something to upgrade my Sony earbuds I loved for about a year.   First off, they have three sixes, with different color on the inside of the cones to tell them apart. I chose the smallest, yet they would all fit me. The sound is impressive for the price. They allow for bass, and treble to comfort to your ear and allow for multi platform listening. The sound does die off with a live album, or bootleg, but it's only if your in a deep listening session. The volume control varies in usage, at one...
