    When should I throw out my Shure Olives?

    I bought my Shure IEMs probably 8 months ago. I could never get the tips off, and I was perpetually afraid of freezing them. Today I finally got sick and tired of disgusting headphones, though, and decided to pop them in the freezer. Who would've thought doing the one thing everyone told me to...

    Need a new (very) low budget Speaker setup for my Computer

    May I ask, where is everyone getting the Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 for $100? I'm searching like crazy, I can't find them under $150. Can someone toss me a link or something? Literally everyone says they go for about a hundred bucks, but I have yet to find them for that ANYWHERE and I'd really like to...

    Help Choosing Between Closed Portable Headphones, <$120

    I feel like I'm constantly posting on here lately... I suppose it's because with the holiday's coming up I just can't decide what my future audio purchases will be.   If I could, I would buy an HD 25-1 II. But I can't; I really can't blow $200 on a pair of headphones right now.    I...

    Wearing IEMs on a plane?

    Quote:   Wow thanks for the super fast replies. Awesome, I'll be sticking with my beloved Shures then (and if I do buy any new on-ears they'll be something like some sr60i's/sr80i's for home use haha, but I probably would've done that anyway. I don't have to look for something...

    Wearing IEMs on a plane?

    In the coming months I'll be doing a little bit of flying. My headphone selection currently consists of my Shure SE215K IEMs and my Ultrasone PRO 550 cans. The Ultrasones, as much as I love them, are gigantic. Not fit for travelling gigantic. It's not so much the appearance that's a problem, as...

    Haha yeah... I've definitely tried that a few times...

    I'm thinking about getting my first stereo setup, and I have no idea where to start.

    1 additional question. What kind of connectors would I want for the speakers (all my options have the same posts) and the Lepai (which has the spring). Would angled pins work for all? Would bent pins work for all? Or is there some other choice I should go with for connectors?

    Oh and if someone could tell me if the Monitor30 Series II would be really inferior to the other two, just thinking in the event I wind up not having quite enough money for the higher end set.

    Quote:   Hm. RTi4. Maybe that. Keep in mind, the Monitor 40 I'm talking about is the Monitor40 Series II, which appears to be different than the standard Monitor 40 (physically, at least). If someone could tell me whether or not the Series II and the original are different aside from...

    Quote: Really? That's interesting, had kinda counted that one out. Hm.  Not to discredit PurpleAngel, but for the sake of other opinions does anyone else think I should probably go with the ProMedia 2.1?

    I'm thinking about getting my first stereo setup, and I have no idea where to start.

    Ok at my sub-200 dollar price point I'm looking at these bookshelf speakers, all from Polk:   -Polk Monitor30 Series II 2-Way Bookshelf Speakers (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16882290201) -Polk TSi100 2-Way Bookshelf Speakers...

    I'm thinking about getting my first stereo setup, and I have no idea where to start.

    Ok I'm rethinking. It seems like, while towers look nicer (physically) everything points toward lower-price bookshelf speakers being higher quality than lower-price tower speakers.   So I'll look. If anyone has suggestions for a pair, and an amp that would work well with them, for under...

    Please help me decide between the FiiO E11, the FiiO E7, the iBasso T4, the iBasso D-Zero, and the iBasso T3.

    Please help me decide between the FiiO E11, the FiiO E7, the iBasso T4, the iBasso D-Zero, and the iBasso T3.

    Nevermind. I looked at a picture. The E11 connects to a device's audio jack. Ok I think I'll buy that in the near future, unless someone runs in and yells "I OBJECT!"

    Quote: I mentioned the E10 in my original post haha, I edited it out as soon as I realized what it was.   I assume I could use the E11 with my laptop, right? I honestly don't think I could even tell you if my laptop's DAC isn't up to snuff, so assuming I could use the E11 with my...
