    Got in some DT 990s. Suggestions?

    Yup. My mistake. They're 32Ω.

    Got in some DT 990s. Suggestions?

    I just ran the 600Ω and 32Ω versions through our tests. The result: they're about the same, really. Both had very low distortion levels and even tracking. They both had a strong, but not boomy bass that tapered off slightly towards the middle frequencies. This diminishing trend continued...

    Got in some DT 990s. Suggestions?

    The amp in our testing setup is a Crown D-45, which is hooked up to a Head and Torso Simulator. This is the main amp that we have in the office, and since we spent all our money on the HATS, I don't think we'll be able to get a second amp. We have a bunch of media players lying around, because a...

    I'd say go with the AH-C551s or, if you want to save even more money, go with the AH-C351s. They're $50 on the nose and are really similar in terms of sound. If you like bass, and don't mind using a headset, the Vibe Duos are a good pick.

    IEMs Below $150 for IPOD 5G

    Are you listening to MP3s or lossless files on your iPod? If you have MP3s, spending more than $150 is kind of overkill since the performance would be wasted on compressed music. The ER-4P are good, but where are you guys finding pairs for $150 or less? Etymotic's 6isolators have a similarly...
