    Thanks! I tried using my spares from my JayBird X2's but they didn't fit. I do a little digging for 400's.

    Ear Bud Recommendations

    I picked up the SoundMAGIC E10s. How can I figure out the size of ear tip replacements? I have fairly large ear canals so the large seem to fit ok. I'd like to check other tips if possible?

    Ear Bud Recommendations

    I have number of over the ear headphones (Beyer COP, DT990 Pro, AT M50, & Sony MDR1000X), but need some in ear headphones for work and my commute. What are your recommendations for inexpensive options (under $50) and higher end options ($150). I won't be using a portable amp. I'll be...

    In Ear Headphones for the Gym Recommendations - Under $100

    Regarding the Klipsch, even when you get sweaty they don't slip out? My old cheap pair tend to slip out after I get a bit sweaty.

    In Ear Headphones for the Gym Recommendations - Under $100

    Thanks.  I don't job much.  Its more on the stair master and biking.  I keep looking at those with the support that inserts above the ear canal and not around the ear.  The Bose SIE2 sport headphones use this design.  I've never heard them though.   Thanks! Eric

    In Ear Headphones for the Gym Recommendations - Under $100

    I am looking for a decent pair of in ear headphones that work great for the gym.  I wear glasses so they can't have the over ear support.  My current cheap pair fall out constantly.  Looking for something under $100.   Thanks! Eric

    New Beyerdynamic Custom One pro's, making "blown" like noise.

    I would say it is a fluke.  I have a a pair and they are great.  Can you return them? or are they under warranty?  Don't give up on them :)

    AMP/DAC Recommendations for DT990 Pros

    I just got the DT990 Pros a few weeks ago so swapping them out is not an option.  I like how they sound and enjoy the open style.  I already have a pair of closed headphones that are 32 Ohm.   Thanks!

    Magni/Modi vs. O2/ODAC for DT 990-250?

    So it doesn't sound like either would be recommended for the DT990 pros.  Any other recommendations up to $500 for an AMP/DAC combo?   Thanks!

    DT880 vs DT990 for rock/metal?

    I just got the DT990s and so far really like them.  They are extremely comfortable.  I haven't been too critical of the sound since they haven't really broken in yet.  What I do notice compared to my Custom One Pros is that they have more extended treble and better sense of air in the sound...

    DT990 Pro Impressions Thread

    From my experience in the high end home audio arena, one of the things you watch out for was poor quality amplifiers.  They may have the same rated watts per channel, but the distortion and ability to keep the drivers under control at higher volumes could lead to damage.  This may not apply to...
