  1. Beyerdynamic Tesla DT 1350

    5.00 star(s)
    So I got these used from another head-fi member for $220 shipping. EPIC WIN! I also won some HD25's from Razordog Deals back in June, so I get to compare the two!   I'm not into writing huge reviews since I don't consider myself to have "golden ears". I'll just say that the HD25's had horrible comfort issues and I hate the plastic build. The DT1350 are much more comfortable, but still have the typical over-ear issues. Pain after prolonged use.   The main thing I noticed was less of the treble sparkle on the DT1350's vs the HD25's. I like this...
  2. Zune HD 16 GB Video MP3 Player (Black)

    4.50 star(s)
    I've had my Zune for over a year now and I do still enjoy it greatly. This June I finally got a good pair of headphones and ever since have been beefing up my audio equipment.  The zune can drive headphones directly better than the iPod touch (used to have audio jack broke 2 times). Problems arise when you begin using amps because the amp multiply the sound. including noise which is a problem for me on my Zune. Unlike iPhones or anything like that though. This thing is a brick. I've dropped this sucked more times than i care to imagine without a...
  3. Skullcandy Aviator Headphone Black, One Size

    4.00 star(s)
    I got the Brown ones from Skullcandy.com. They are very stylish, light, soft, and comfortable. I know Skullcandy gets a lot of flack from Audiophiles but for style and sound. I don't know anything like it.   Now my first impressions were very bad. When I put these on. I could notice great range and I heard things that I never heard with my Skullcandy Titan's, but I could no detect too much difference between the two. This disappointed me GREATLY. Bottom line: They sound like CRAP out of box and I've read many reviews before buying these...
  4. Skullcandy FMJ Earbuds / Headset (iPhone Compatible) - Black

    2.00 star(s)
    I compared these headphones to Titan. FMJ offers thicker bass if you are looking for that and I have heard from numorous sources that the FMJ's last a longer time as compared to the Titan. But I would rather scarifice durability for quality and personally my Titans have lasted longer than the FMJs.   FMJ's lack comfort because of their long design. The noise generated by cord and other noise is greatly dampened. Titans don't offer as much noise isolation so I suppose the FMJ's are better for sports. Thumping bass to keep rhythm and noise...
  5. Skullcandy Riot Ear Buds Black/Black, One Size

    3.00 star(s)
    I had these and they lasted a month. Turned them into Skullcandy for store credit and bought myself a second pair of Titan's. :)   Anyway Riots offer better audio quality, style, durability than Ink'd. I originally bought these using Skullcandy's warranty plan after buying a pair of Ink'd before. So I only paid $3 for shipping. These also offer a aluminium housing as opposed to only plastic. I have found that both the Ink'd and Riot have problems at the jack where after caring use they still lost one side of audio after a month. Though the Riot...
  6. Skullcandy S2TTBZ-BZ Titan Earbuds, (Black)

    I have tested all of the in-ear headphones that Skullcandy has to offer. I have done this through the very good lifetime warranty plan offered by Skullcandy. I own a pair of 2011 Red/Black Titans and by far they have the best tone, in my opinion, of all the Skullcandy in-ear headphones. Both FMJ and 50/50 offer rich bass. If you are looking for bass then thats what your need. Personally my Titans lasted longer than my friend's FMJ's.   Titans offer the best tone and the only reason I buy Skullcandy is because of their warranty. I am no...
