    Xiaomi Pistons 3.0 Impressions Thread

      Thanks for the replies!   After assessing my options, I've come to the conclusion that the prevalence of fakes is too big of a risk, so I'm going to buy a different product. If I were still living in the US, I'd probably take the chance. However, the markup on pretty much any headphone here...

    LG Quadbeat 3 Impressions Thread

    Good evening Head-Fi-ers!   I've been looking for a new set of IEMs to use for exercise and situations where I don't want to risk my better IEMs (the Westone 2 I've learned is very sensitive to moisture, for example). Does anyone have any experience using the LG Quadbeat for working out?   I...

    Recommendations from a selection of inexpensive headphones available in Brazil

    Good evening Head-Fi-ers ...   A couple years back, my family moved to Brazil. From arrival until yesterday, my small headphone collection was able to fill all my needs, so I've had no need to explore the domestic selection. Yesterday though, my only remaining pair of headphones fit for...

    Headphones for running/exercise without a lot of isolation - $200 or less

    Quote:   Great feedback, much obliged!   I probably should have mentioned that I do have a pair of Shure E4Gs for when I'm mobile and want isolation, plus a pair of Sennheiser HD 595 for listening at home. Headphones for working out have been a challenge because even if it weren't for...

    Headphones for running/exercise without a lot of isolation - $200 or less

    The wiring in the plug stem of my Sennheiser PX100 'phones finally broke, so now I need a replacement set for working out. I'm not averse to buying another pair of PX 100s, but first I wanted to look around to see if there are any other contenders.    The main criteria for these headphones...

    Newbie to IEM's...I just have a general question about them

    Quote: Originally Posted by stewtheking IEM's are essentially limited by their very nature. Tubes running into the ear canal mean that the sound tends to feel as if it's located inside the head and no further out. The "soundstage" of the music is what suffers most. Other than that...

    Help me decide between 4 headphone options...

    I've decided to potentially spend more money and also to only pursue IEMs since most of my music listening is while commuting, so I'm now considering the Audio Technica ATH-CK7 and Westone UM1's on the lower end of my budget and the Shure E4C and Ultimate Ears super.fi 5 Pro on the upper end...
