    Reply to review by 'Mikeybear' on item '1MORE Quad Driver In-Ear Headphones (Earphones/Earbuds) with Apple iOS and Android Compatible Microphone and Remote (Black)'

    I'm going on day 5 of burn-in. The buds were absolutely unlistenable at first, a wall of bass-heavy muck. As of today, they still sound veiled in the mids (vocals through velvet curtain is how I would describe it; no immediacy), way rolled-off in the highs, which surprises me, given the driver...

    Arizona Head-Fi Meet: January 24th 2015 - Impressions Thread

    I was a head-fi meetup virgin.   Many thanks to the organizers and all you head-fiers for hauling your phones and rigs. Next time I will get there much earlier so I can hear all the rigs. Had no idea there would be so many devices to listen to! I was quite impressed with everyone and your...

    NEWS: Apple acquires Beats for $3 Billion (Update: Full interview on recode.net)

    I've never understood why the iPhone/iOS doesn't offer equalization like the iTunes app does. Seems like the hardware on the iPhone would be up to the task, no? When listening using iTunes I will sometimes tweak a little depending on which phones I'm using and if there is a particularly...

    Apple Earpods

    I disliked most tips on earbuds until I tried Comply memory foam tips. While they wear out after a couple of months' use (at least in my ears), they are relatively inexpensive to change out. They come in packs of 3 pairs. They are the only earbud tips that seal really well in my ears. Sound of...
