    Earphone Recs for Frequent Flyer (Isolation)?

    Right now the Klipsch Custom 3's can be had on Amazon for $99.00.    IMHO a great deal on a set of phones with a warm sound signature and good bass response.  The weak point is the cable on these.  Fit can be a little tricky until you get use to them but once you get it figured out they are...

    New to the "Audiophile" Market

    Open Portable - Koss KSC75 lean to the forward or brighter side but still have good balance of bass midrange and high end detail. All around winner. Open Portable - Senn PX100 Deep Bass but you might consider it bloated. Highs can seem rolled off or recessed. Still makes a good Rock headphone...

    ER6i cheap @ Palm

    Not sure if there are many fans of the Ety ER6i but for the price Palm is offering them for, ~ $48, I figured there might be some interest. I still get a lot of use from my trusty ER6's. I might grab a set or 2 for gifts. Here's the link or you can go through the Add on Head-Fi. Palm ER6i
