    Reply to review by 'night crawler' on item 'Crystal Piccolino IEM Cable'

    I visited my local mini-mart today, and when I approached the cashier, I asked him the following. "Excuse me. I'm looking for the brown eggs. I see that they're on sale, but do they sell it in a suck price?" Should have seen the look on the poor guy's face. Almost as puzzled as mine was when I...

    reeltime, you certainly weren't kidding. I received my first ever HD800's today, and came to the very same conclusion. The HD800 is very source dependent! Most of my amps left me completely underwhelmed, save for two in particular. The first is my DACmini PX, which has served as my all time...

    Great read. In fact, this review pushed me over the fence, and I just placed my order! The HD800 has been on my list even since I discovered Head-Fi a few years back (though I registered much later), but for one reason or another, I was never fully convinced. Now that I've invested more than I...

    Reply to review by 'night crawler' on item 'Ultrasone PRO 750'

    I'm sorry to derail the discussion, but the Signature Pro is a rare breed, and I honestly advise anyone considering the Signature Pro NOT to be discouraged by the rest of Ultrasone's (occasionally flawed) lineup. Not too long ago, I attended a local Head-Fi meet where more than one individual...

    This appears to be yet another case of poor QC on Ultrasone's part. Having owned the 550, 750, 900, Signature Pro, and Edition 8, I found the Edition 8 to exhibit the worst quality control (I've simultaneously owned 3 unique sets), whereas the 900 sounded downright terrible! Shrill, exaggerated...

    Reply to review by 'night crawler' on item 'HiFiMAN HE-400'

    I feel your pain (pun intended). I've experienced a similar situation with a few of my own headphones (though admittedly, not with any of the HiFiMans), and for me, comfort always takes precedence! Always! Hopefully in time, you'll acclimate to their clamping and weight, as was my case when I...

    Wow, you sure weren't kidding, hifimanrookie. I just received mine earlier today (revision 2, with the braided silver cable), and as far as the dynamic cans I've owned, these are easily among the best. I'm in full agreement with your statement: "Best phone u can buy bar none for the price." No...

    Nice read, shane. The SS is still the best damn IEM I've ever owned. [ :

    @manzana: yes, it's functions perfectly well with ortho's. Drives my Mad Dog's, HE-4, HE-500, and HE-5LE with ample headroom.
