    Those who waiting Xin amp, post and get your date of arrival !

    I have a super macro III, and I want to send it in for upgrades, but I don't know how long I will be without it if I do. I would also like to get a reference amp and/or super micro IV, but I don't want to wait, so I haven't ordered them. When I got my III, I waited about 10 days between...

    Ultra Super Tiny Mini Meet (Only 2 Head-Fiers)

    Vorlon, I notice you have some ety ER-4P/Ss. I have these as well, and a Xin Macro III. I find that bass boost to be seesential for my Etys, and as such, was considering a super-mini IV as an even more portable amp than my macro III. After reading this thread, I am now wondering what you...

    IEM for sleeping needed

    I decided on the Sony ex71s based on the other sleep thread I found here. I already have a decent pair of IEMs in my Etys ER-4Ps, so I am not looking to spend that much. I also plan on some new custom IEMs next year (UE, sensa, westone perhaps, we'll see what's available) as I get my PhD this...

    IEM for sleeping needed

    I was wondering if anyone had a suggestion for an IEM for using while sleeping. I would like to try some brainwave entrainment audio, as I have sleep problems, and they require headphones for proper usage. However, I sleep on my side, so I need an earphone that will 'disappear.' I have the...

    Pictures of your Portable Rig II - The Journey Continues.

    Well, here is my portable rig. Still looking for the right case, and currently just use a blue rubber band to hold the 2 pieces together. The amp has 2 smal;l strips of mylar with adhesive backing stuck to it to keep it from scrathing the ipod.

    Gilmore Lite and/or SuperMacro for Etys?

    If you are going to get a SM, get the ety 4Ps and the 4 feature switches, More flexibility. I can't compare the 2 amps, but I can say the Ety 4Ps are DRAMATICALLY improved with the SM3 with the 4 feature switches. This pair was really made for each other in my opinion. rob

    grado discomfort

    The key to making the grados wearable is getting the perfect bend to the head band and breaking in the foam through use. They will get there. I am so tactily ensative that I used exclusively my MDR-F1s for a long time becausse no other headphone was comfortable enough to replace them...

    What normal person uses these headphones?

    I had my grados and ety 4Ps lopng before I discovered head-fi. Thanks to head fi, I now have a Xin Super Macro 3 as well. Prior to finding head-fi I had no idea I could get such a high quality portable amp, and I listen to music almost exclusively portably these days. I did find head-fi while...

    Your Dream Setup....

    I would like my iPod to have a useable EQ, to be even smaller, with my Super Macro built in, and the 4 feature switched activated through the UI, and some UE-10s, and a 1TB HD so I can store my music library in uncompressed format. . . and Mingus in my living room would make a nice home system.

    ER4S vs ER4P

    I like the 4P in "S mode" via the impedance switch on my SM 3. I never listen to them without an amp anymore (that is, for the 2 days I have had the amp.)
