    Sennheiser PXC 450 serial number - Help Needed

    Sigh, I guess there isn't much I can do even if I see it pops up on local craiglists then... The thief didn't steal the carrying case and the adapters though. And there are some wears on the ear pads (after 3 years of daily wearing) that I can recognized right away.

    Sennheiser PXC 450 serial number - Help Needed

    I got my PXC 450 stolen today . I have reported the case to the police and I would like to provide them with the serial number of the headphones.   Although I bought them a few years ago, I still have the original box with me and there are more than 1 number on it that looks like a serial...

    REVIEW: ACS custom tips + SENNHEISER IE8

    By the way, how much does an audiologist typically charge for making an earmold impressions? I called an audiologist to request pricing information, and I somehow missed their call when they tried to got back to me. They left me a voice message saying that it would cost $50. Not cheap, but the...

    REVIEW: ACS custom tips + SENNHEISER IE8

    ajmiarka, how soft is the EP material? Compared to, say, the stock silicon tips or the stock foam tips? Do you think going from canal to full/half shell would improve isolation? After all only the canal part is plugged into your ears... Anyway, I am worrying that the full/half shell earmolds...

    Build quality of IE8 (failed QA?)

    My first pair of IE8 had distortion in the right channel with moderately high (but humanly listenable) volume level. It actually sounded like something was vibrating inside, probably they didn't apply enough glue to hold things together (just guessing, I don't know if any glue was used in the...

    Sennheiser IE8 Impressions Thread

    Kudos to Sennheiser USA! My IE8 had some slight distortion in the right channel right out of the box, and with a little burn-in, they went away. However, the distortion reappeared last week and became worse. I emailed Sennheiser and they believed that my pair was defective. I shipped them...

    mx660 sounds better than cx500?

    There are many faked CX300 and CX500 on the market though. There used to be a guide on how to tell the fakes apart from checking the flaws on the packaging. I recently read that these flaws were fixed on some newer fakes... I would definitely avoid getting the CX series on places like eBay.

    mx660 sounds better than cx500?

    I have both CX300 and CX500, and the CX500 sounds significantly better than the CX300 in every way. I don't have MX660, but I had MX550 and MX500 before and the CX500 (or even CX300) beats them easily. Is your friend's CX500 new? The CX500 is a bass-heavy earphone. If they are new, the bass...

    Senn MM50IP vs CX500?

    The CX500 sounds significantly better than CX300 in every way, and thus I guess the CX500 would sound much better than the MM50ip. You can try to email Sennheiser regarding the difference between CX400 and CX500, they usually reply email fairly quickly. If they are indeed the same, beside the...

    Detachable cord? Not a good idea. "Honey, I dropped the left earpiece today."

    Sennheiser IE8 Impressions Thread

    I emailed Sennheiser USA and asked if they have any plan to make an iPhone adapter cable with mic and remote control for the IE 8. This is their answer "There are several discussions about the iPhone adapter cable, but at this time there is no cable." I also asked Null Audio (Null Audio...
