    Journey getting to an end...

    I have been a faithful Head-Fi member the last 7 year. It all started back in January 2004 when I came here looking for alternative earbuds/headphones for my newly acquired iPod. Got several tips and quickly realized that the members were knowledgeable, friendly and helpful - so I decided to...
