    Pictures of Your Portable Rig (part XVI)

    I TOTALLY get his reasoning. I change cables and now i'm in that position of having to have mine fixed since the cable won't stay in securely.:angry::sob::sob::sob::sob::sob::sob:

    Can an Apple inline control work with Android?

    Here's the link to the Groupon deal for the IEMs I mentioned.  It doesn't say specifically enginereed for iPhone.  It says "smartphones".  I don't have an Android phone to test out for you.  Hope this helps! Chris

    Can an Apple inline control work with Android?

    I don't have the headphones with me today of all days BUT I am pretty sure they were marketed to work with iPhone and Android devices.  I have an iPhone so I can't attest to first hand knowledge that they do in fact work with Android phones.  Until I get home to see the package, I can't give you...

    Pictures of Your Portable Rig (part XVI)

    Quote: In the US its used to put on shelves so glassware does not chip or break.  It's soft and slightly sticky so it stays in place as do glasses when placed upon it.  I just found a product that I am testing out this weekend which you pour onto the surface of your device.  It dries to a...

    Best portable iPod speaker-dock? Looking for something decent w/ battery

    Here's a link to look at the pictures.  What I do is find a product that appeals to me and then take the make and model to and search for it there.  On their site you can read all the reviews left by people who have purchased and used the item to see what their opinions are.  Helps to...

    Best portable iPod speaker-dock? Looking for something decent w/ battery

    If you know what Bose speakers sound like, I think they make a portable bluetooth speaker under $200.  Logitech as well.  A good source to use to shop, ironically, is the Apple store.  They carry many portable speaker brands, most of good to high quality.

    Pictures of Your *Budget-Fi* Portable Rig (< $200)

    Quote: Don't worry.  They are just messing with you.  There is nothing wrong or illegal about your post.  The fact your rig was built on "on sale", "used" or "refubbed" items makes it qualify for "budget rig" worthiness.  Don't sweat it dude and don't take it personally!!!!!!!!!!!

    JH Audio JH-13 PRO impressions thread

    From my experience, and I have had plenty with JH customer service, I have not once had a rude or even delayed response from Brittany or anyone else there.  They are not a big company.  I think they are less than 20 employees.  My emails and questions have always been responded too within 24...

    @buttuglyjeff and your electric bill to charge and run that balanced rig runs about what a month.  LOL  TSA would NEVER let you threw security carrying that rig without a LOT of explaining and demonstrating.  Otherwise, nice rig!!!

    Better cables = better sound?

    I'm going to agree with the Attorney.  More expensive does equal better but that doesn't mean "better" is what you will like.  All of this audiophile stuff is hugely dependent on personal tast and preference.  If it wasn't, this website would have put Apple out of business years ago for "poor...
