    Comment by 'Ggroch' in item 'ISK HF-2010 Semi-Open Monitor Headphones'

    Now Also Available from Monoprice. I have not been closely following Monoprice recently, but it appears they are no longer trying to be headphone market leaders if they release 5 year old designs or others as a unique breakthrough product.

    You can get very close to the Ultimate One look and materials for a lot less Sivga Branded. Their model SV007 appears nearly identical and was originally advertised as having 50mm Beryllium film drivers. It sold for about $100. Sivga's OEM obviously makes the KLH, which has real leather and...

    An Amazon seller of FIIL earbuds seems to be closing out their neckband style models for $10-15, originally in 2019 about $50-$100, so a good discount. I own a couple of them and like the comfort, neutral sound and good connectivity. Battery life is OK. An ACIL branded neckband model from the...

    B&H has Cleer Flow (v1) over ear ANC Bluetooth Headphones in Black and Silver for $50 with free 2 day shipping. Deal of the day. Bluetooth 4.2 with LDAC and aptX (and some report aptX-HD). I have never heard them, but they do have some interesting tech. The "Ironless" 40mm drivers have no...

    If it was an error it was an error on all of their Black Friday headphone prices. I picked up a pair of AH-D1200 for $69 and the new "Cyberweek" sale price is $159. I think they just wanted to dump excess stock fast.

    AKG new N90Q

    I own both, and think their is no contest, the N90Q sound better and are far more comfortable. The N90Q have a far more open detailed sound, which is also easily adjustable without an app. The cups are larger, softer, with less clamp. The Sony's have much better and customizable active noise...

    Yesterday the FIIL T1X were $34 with no coupon. I agree the current $40 is a good value. RE: the Spunky Beats ---- I coincidentally just ordered those yesterday during a lightning deal for $24. (yeah, I have a cheap TWS fetish). In my experience so far if most of the TWS earphones...

    Good price on a new model. I paid a bit more for a used pair on eBay. I like them a whole lot. Extremely comfortable for me, and they seem to closely follow the Harman curves. In the 3 weeks since I got them they have been my go to computer headphones. I am tempted to buy another set...but...

    Chromecast audio - can anyone comment on sound quality?

    Perhaps Jamie will have a different answer...but the Chromecast Audio has a volume control. It is accessible in the Google Home App, and probably also accessible from any other source app you would use, for example, I use Spotify to stream to the CCA, and I can control the volume from the...
