    If you still love Etymotic ER4, this is the thread for you...

    What has been the turnaround time for those who sent in their ER4's for cable repair to Etymotic? I weighed my options and figured a factory replacement of the cable would have been the most cost and time effective but now I am thinking I should have purchased a second pair or even a pair of the...

    DIY Cable Gallery!!

    I used these when I reterminated my RHA MA750s, I was able to re-use the RHA barrel after filing off the threads of the original plug and deleted the spring strain relief in favor for one from heatshrink

    LG-V10 Hi-Fi audio quality review on serious audio performance

    Soundcloud was still not recognized by upgrading to MM so I still utilized the DAC fix app when streaming Soundcloud....not a biggie IMO but figured I would let you know that it might be the same for you. Everything else worked perfectly though.

    Beyerdynamic DT-1770: Product Info, Discussion and Impressions

    I think I ****ed up making the 1770s my first "headphone" purchase....I don't know what the progression/upgrade would be without SERIOUS investment. They are efficient but revealing when amped, the sub bass is amazing (actually the whole freq range but the lower region stands out without...

    Vape-Fi

    Seen the 213 going for around $100 with batteries and I like the look and feel but I am in a micro sized setup mood lately.

    DIY Cable Gallery!!

    Nicely done, single entry cans make our jobs easier when recabling by hiding the split.   Gathering some parts to do a recable myself of some single entry cans I just need to decide on if I want the job to be a universal (able to use on multiple headphones) or tailored specifically for the DT...

      I was trying to snag a vinatge pair off ebay a couple of times but when that panned out I did not feel as bad when I grabbed that deal off Amazon.

    Couple of days to a couple of weeks and brain burn in should set all right again.   I have been enjoying mine so much more now that I am using the Comply tips because I can insert them and remove them without the pressure/suction effect. I also just recently put in the red filters from...

    LG-V10 Hi-Fi audio quality review on serious audio performance

    I have been experiencing this using my Etymotic ER4 and the V10. Stationary listening does not pose a problem but even casual walking will trigger the Google Now voice search. I am curious if I were to use an insulator on the location of the mic location on a TRRS plug will work to cease this...

    FiiO New Portable Headphone Amp A1 --Classic & Tiny & Metal

    I looked over the full specifications page but did not see a clarification of the number of volume steps. I would love to pair this with my RHA MA750 and iPod shuffle for gym/running use! EDIT:From BloodyPenquin's review

    Just received the T100 Comply foam tips and I feel that I lost some detail but that is just my initial impression. Comfort (for my own ears) has increased significantly to the point that my Etys feel weightless combined with the provided shirt clip.  I had been worried that I purchased the...

    DIY Cable Gallery!!

    Awesome! I didnt go as far as to recable my RHA MA750is but rather sleeved the lower portion with 3m reflective 550 paracord and replaced the plug with an Amazon TRRS alternative. To retain the RHA plug sleeve (for pure aesthetics) I simply heated it up using a pencil torch and removed the...

    LG V10 : New ESS Chipped Flagship Android Phone from LG

    I find myself not using the battery that came in the promo as much since the "shiny new toy effect" has worn off but continue to carry it since it is so compact.  I was reading through the other V10 thread and was wondering if anyone else was having issues with their standard stereo plugs vs...

    RHA MA750i clicking sound, even when not plugged in?

    I remember reading about driver flex being an issue when I was researching these IEMs. Apparently its a luck of the draw weather or not you get a pair with driver flex but people have had luck getting exchanges from RHA directly. I have been fortunate to not have any driver flex but the easily...

    LG V10 : New ESS Chipped Flagship Android Phone from LG

    I am glad to see that with LG has stuck with continuing to provide a viable option for audiophiles using smartphones as a portable source with the new G5 "friend" from B&O but I have"no ragrets" on investing in the V10. I have just fixed my RHA MA750's for the thrid time that have a straight...
