    Review: 1MORE Triple Driver In-Ear Headphone with In-line Microphone and Remote

    After almost a year these earbuds are still holding up well for me. The only complaint I have is that for some reason the silicone tips that I've been using since I got them have gotten very loose. To the point that if I'm not careful when taking them off, the tip will remain stuck in my ear...

    Fostex x Massdrop TH-X00 Review

      How hard is it to swap the pads? Do they just pull off or is something more required? I've been picking around the edges of mine and it seems like it wouldn't be too hard to yank off but don't want to accidentally screw them up. I'm currently ok w/the stock pads but all this talk about the...

    XBA-3/ XBA-30 thread.

    Does anyone know if it's possible to get replacement noise reduction tips (the one w/the foam ring underneath) for these XBA-3s? I've been using mine for years now and the foam has gotten too flattened out so won't stay under the silicone tip easily anymore. But Sony doesn't seem to sell these...

    [REVIEW] Logitech UE9000 - Ultimate Ears HEADPHONES Released! The UE4000, UE6000 and the UE9000 - Impressions Thread

    Quote:   Just got a pair today and had this exact same issue. But after reading this exchange I just took the plug and really jammed it into the socket and it clicked! Definitely takes a lot more force than I originally expected.   Anyway, can't say I'm as psyched about these as you...

    Anyone buy from Turbulent Labs before?

    I have their black Manta headband for my Magnum. MUCH better than the stock Grado headbands. The top of my head doesn't hurt after extended wear anymore.

    Any anime series that you've been enjoying?

    The anime covers very little compared to the manga. I haven't read the manga but I did take a look at what was causing the fuss when it first happened. The anime had pretty much a non-ending (it was only 13 eps long after all) so it definitely wasn't as controversial.         Quote:

    IMO, Akira was ground-breaking for its time. Nowadays, not so much. Was never particularly fond of it.   Akira Kurosawa, OTOH, fabulous. =)

    11 New Sony BA IEMs

    I preordered a pair of the XBA-3iP from Amazon (US) a couple of months back and they just came in last week. I think it has a pretty well-balanced sound. Coming from an ety hf-3, the mids aren't as pronounced and I detected some sibilance occasionally that I'm hoping will mellow a bit in time...

    Ultrasone Edition 8 vs. Beyerdynamic T5P, anybody?

    I think the Ed8 has a better-balanced overall sound but there are some things that I previously mentioned that just doesn't sound right to me with them. The T5p has great clarity and I like the way the mids and highs sound but it has a very, very, very recessed sub-bass. Besides that the bass is...

    My interests this season:   Top Tier Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou aka "Nichibros" - for the most part, HI--larious. I watch too much Gintama though so keep picturing Gintoki whenever Hidenori speaks. =p Ano Natsu de Matteru - not that excited about the overused alien girl angle but like...
