    DAP with the best SQ?

    I couldn't find a lot of reviews for the DX 90.  I'm leaning heavily towards the X5.

    Extreme Noise Cancleing Earphones

    I recommend the Shure line of IEM's whatever fits your budget. I recommend Shure, not because of the SQ, but because of the superior cable management. Use the triple flange. If the insert fits your ear properly, you can almost completely drown out the sounds of the mower. This means you can have...

    Replacement for Shure E3c

    I'm on my third pair. I started with E1s, when they got discontinued and mine wore out, I got a free upgrade to E3s, and I'm now on my 2nd pair of E3s. I bet if you send those babies in, Shure will replace them free. I don't think it matters how many times you've done it. Then, when you get the...

    Need in-ear headphones...

    The E3s might be worth a look. Most folks say they are bassier than average, but many don't like the SQ. The cable management is excellent.

    Creative - Never again!

    I guess I'm lucky. Bought a Nomad Jukebox in early 2002. Still runs perfectly. Bought a Nomad Jukebox 3 in mid 2002. Still has the original Li-Ion batteries. I still use this player nearly every day. The only issue is the earphone jack which I have fixed myself. The batteries still hold...

    DAP vs. Turntable?

    Sorry, I can't let this go. You take a DDD CD, convert it to .wav, transfer it to a good DAP (I still use my JB3) that has a dedicated line out, and you run that into a nice amp. You take a 70s turntable and nice pick up with a vinyl record, and run that into a nice amp. You compare the...

    Headphone recommendation on a budget?

    My headphone recommendation is to throw away your budget

    How to identify the ER4

    I believe the physical difference is in the cable, isn't it? Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe the earphone itself is exactly the same between the P and the S -- the difference is the cable. The P has a twisted cable, and the S has a straight cable.

    my poor e2

    Otherwise, you can send them in for repair which will cost you no more than fifty bucks. My experience is they will just send you a new pair in a retail package.
