    Want to test Yuin PK2, should I get DIY version ?

    May I ask, why you are so sure that they'll sound different. Is it because of the cabling (then I don't care) ? Or is it because that the drivers are different or that the drivers are housed in a different "shell" (then I would care) ?

    Want to test Yuin PK2, should I get DIY version ?

    Hi I can find at aliexpress either the original YUIN PK2 (well, that's what the seller claim) at 40$, or a DIY version with a much nicer cable at 20$ (nice torsaded flexible cable). The cost of delivery is included. I hesitate because lot of people complain than the build quality of YUIN PK2...

    Earbuds Round-Up

    Just wondering why the rankings were removed. I was thinking if I couldn't get nice earbuds from aliexpress.

    A solution for running (player + headphone) < 200$

    Thanks for the suggestion, I decided to go for the more expensive ma750 version instead. I've seen contradictory review about it, some say they are good for gym, other not. But I was convinced by a review at youtube. Also there's not much comparison with the ma650. I found this video...

    headphones for home use/working out

    I just thought of the hd25-1. They are very sturdy, but I'm not sure how well they'll resist to sweat. Also, there's the cable, don't know if it would resist to gym moves. They are great for "mainstream music", the stuff you listen on radio.

    headphones for home use/working out

    I'd take for gym either a koss ksc75. or a senn pmx680. But you are lucky, senn has discontinued the pmx680, and the new model is much more expensive. So if you want absolutely to spend 100$: http://en-us.sennheiser.com/sport-earphones-neckband-running-jogging-workouts-pmx-686g   For home...

    audio checker showing .m4a AAC lossy as lossless when converted to flac?? Can anybody please explain this anomaly

    Your "audio checker" is probably using aucdtect. This analyzer is mostly used to detect mp3 compression. If a file is detected as lossless, it's still not a warranty that it's lossless. If a file is detected as lossy, it doesn't mean it's necessarily lossy too. If a track is low passed  by...

    This has been more than 15 days that I  paid for a "Copper Series HPC Mk2" , and still not even a tracking number for the delivery of the article. I'm not sure this is normal.  Last week I  contacted them, and they said that by the end of week I'll get that tracking number, and still nothing.

    Best classical recordings...ever!

    I'd rather discover new classical composers with films, just like the ones from Stanley Kubrick.

    Best classical recordings...ever!

    Here's the winner from a french show. It was a kind of competition between very young people (between 7 & 16 year old), and there were performing classical stuff (opera, ballet etc). I  find it a bit depressive, it's as much unoriginal as it can be (Summer from Vivaldi):

    Best classical recordings...ever!

    I  think Gould's Mozart is better for the so called "Mozart Effect".  If it's not true, I've decided it anyways. By the way I'm getting a copy of concerto 23 & Sonata for Two Pianos in D Major K. 448 after reading the wiki page.

    Best classical recordings...ever!

    From what I understood Gould didn't hate in particular Mozart , but disliked the whole Classical Period. He chose to bash Mozart, because this composer was one of the most influential of that period. It's funny that his favorite composer is Orlando Gibbons, a quite obscure artist today, that is...
