    What pisses you off while you listening music?

    Bingo! Bad mastering gets my goat. I'll add to that bad re-mastering. Why mess with a good thing? I'm looking at you U2: Remastered War and The Unforgettable Fire... more like the unlistenable failure. I can listen to the originals until the cows come home; these just sound awful.

    What pisses you off while you listening music?

    I know. I think it 'pisses me off' because there's a world of music out there, but I'm thrilled to repeat just a drop in the bucket. On the bright side of it, I guess that's a testament to the songs I do like.

    iPhone 6 & 6 Plus Audio Quality

    I should add that the headphones I used were the B&W C5 and UE 600vi. I haven't tried the 6 with my P7s yet.

    iPhone 6 & 6 Plus Audio Quality

    I couldn't agree more. I've tried two different headphones, switching back and forth between my iPhone 6 and 5 (both running ios8) and the 6 sounds noticeably better: warmer, a bit more detailed, less edgy at the high frequencies, and the bass has more authority.

    IEMs that are most similar to B&W P7

    Ah, where were you a month ago when I left mine on a plane!

    IEMs that are most similar to B&W P7

    My B&W pouch does the same to my cords, but I find that my old Etymotic pouch keeps them perfectly in place.

    IEMs that are most similar to B&W P7

    Ditto. I also preferred the stock tips and have just replaced them with medium comply tips. I only wish I did it sooner. They are a bit more comfortable (never thought the stock were uncomfortable) and a lot more secure.    I'm now on my second pair, actually. I unfortunately left my original...

    IEMs that are most similar to B&W P7

    I've had the C5 now for 3 months (an eternity for me!) and couldn't agree more. They are finicky, indeed, but when you get the right seal (and not a complete one) they are quite exceptional and vey much akin to the P7 in a lot of ways. Besides having to play around with the fit from...

    oh sure, of course (face palm). Do you think that applies to their online site as well?

    IEMs that are most similar to B&W P7

    I would second trying the SE535LTD. I sometimes regret selling mine. From my experience, they have a bit more sparkle at the top than the SE535, which serves to balance out the mids slightly. Out of my home receiver, they had oodles of bass and were a lot more punchy/alive (relatively) than when...

    IEMs that are most similar to B&W P7

    Hey imackler, so good to see you around here. No worries, if there was a confessional booth for Head-Fi, I'd be in there twice a week! First, I have to say that I really like how EarSonics visualizes the sound signature. I will have to go back and listen to the P7 with that in mind, to sketch...

    IEMs that are most similar to B&W P7

    Right? I took my pair home and gave them another hour or two... just closed my listing. Sure, they're not the best in the world, but I like how they do what they do. I am curious to hear the UE900s in comparison to the P7, but will wait until I can get them locally or from on online site with a...

    Thanks. I didn't see the terms of the return policy on Logitech's site, so will probably wait until I can get them somewhere else. I got my first pair from the Apple Store as well. Their current selection is pretty weak, but maybe they'll start stocking these at some point.
