    Alternatives to ipod

    I have not been too happy with my zen micro. I got it because it can play subscription music and has a user replaceable battery, but, battery life does suck. I don't have numbers for it but definitely less than 3 hours of play. Even with car charger it needs recharging overnight periodically...

    shure e3c or ety er6i?

    I tried er6i for an hour. They hurt so much to my ears that I returned them to buy.com the next morning. These IEM are not my thing.

    Pittsburgh, PA Meet Sunday June 26

    Hey guys. I hope the last meet was fun. I was a little too new at head-fi at that time to know about these meets and such things. Any new meet at pittsburgh in the pipeline? Thanks, Nachi.

    which mp3 player should i buy? (non-ipod)

    i have been looking at around 5gb players. dell pocket dj is one option. Rio carbon is another. I like the Creative zen micro for its replaceable battery. Any particular suggestion in <$200 budget and >1gb players?

    Best headphones to go to bed with?

    I am getting a e2c by shure. I have a HD600 and the problem with it is you can't roll around while wearing it isn't that sad? correction: I am getting a er6i from buy.com finally. I don't know if these iem are my thing or not. I guess I'll not know unless I try them out.

    Best headphones to go to bed with?

    An unusual question! What would be a good (cheap) headphone to wear when you are going to bed? you know for a little relaxation after a tiring day, before you fall asleep. KSC-75 seems close, but, I am afraid that they will break easily. Some thing like a earbud would be nice, but, I...

    Noise when moving mouse (HDSP 9632)

    Breez has to be right. It IS related to graphics card and possibly the 2d acceleration thing. When I move my mouse around: nothing. When I roll the scroll wheel, it's there. But, it's there even after the scroll wheel has stopped, till the window has stopped scrolling. I use the smooth...

    Sennheiser HD600 has arrived!

    Thanks catscratch for the upgrade path. I realize that I really need an amplifier. But, I thought Sound Blaster Audigy 2 Zs are good cards. Edit: I think I don't fully understand the role of the amplifier. I guess it's not only to crank up the volume. If so then they would be useless when we...

    Sennheiser HD600 has arrived!

    I am new to this forum, but, incidentally, I received my factory-reconditioned HD600 from Amazon yesterday at noon. These are my first impressions: Sure it sounds better than my previous aiwa hp x-223 (I am getting serious about headphones only recently), but, I was not thoroughly impressed...

    Suggestions for first headphones

    Amazon sells HD600 (factory reconditioned) for $189. You might wanna look at it. I got mine few days back. Looks new to me.
