    Portable noise isolating / cancelling setup? - $500-1000

    Yeah that all makes sense. I think I might try to reshell the UE900s and then get a pair of the Sony's for the ANC after selling everything else. Thanks for your help SilverEars!

    Portable noise isolating / cancelling setup? - $500-1000

    Yeah that makes a lot of sense. I guess the IEMs themselves are not IPX rated and that's the expensive component. Have you compared how custom IEMs noise isolation compare to ANC? I understand ANC is nowadays top notch, but if custom IEMs can get close I'm willing to compromise for sound quality.

    Portable noise isolating / cancelling setup? - $500-1000

    Is there a reason the UE 18+ CSX WITH FOSTEX TM2 setup doesn't work? I could use an aux cable with them, they should have good isolation, apparently the TM2 are IPX 5 rated and have a mic? I know they're above my price range rn though

    DUNU DN-1000 vs Klipsch X7 vs RHA MA750i vs Beyerdynamic DT-770 32 Ohm

    So I recently picked up the first three IEMS and wanted to a comparison between them. I will be parting with them except the DT-770 soon so I thought I'd write a comparison before that time comes.    Before I begin my review I would like to say that I am by no means an audiophile. Here is my...

    OnePlus One

    Okay what do I need to do to test the Maxxaudio issue? I opened up audioFX. Sorry I'm not very familiar with what Maxx Audio is.

    OnePlus One

    What is the general consensus on the audio quality of the One Plus One? Because my Dt-770's 32 ohm seems to sound better from my laptop then the phone. I am on CM12 if that affects anything.

    Secret Santa IEMS for less than $30.

    I am in a secret santa and am looking to get my friends some headphones to introduce them to the world of audiophiles :). I'm not looking to spend too much so if you guys could give me a recommendation for a pair under $30, that'd be great. I'm currently looking at these...

    Monster Turbine Pro Copper Replacements

    Hi. About a year ago I bought a pair of Monster Turbine Copper Pro's, which come with a lifetime warranty. Since then, the headphones have broken, been replaced, and now have broken for a second time. With the warranty I'm allowed to have them replaced again but when I called Monster they said...

    The ATH-CKS77.

    Could you list the songs you use? and how long do you suggest I burn them in for? Thanks again.

    The ATH-CKS77.

    Hey Dsnuts what do you suggest for burning in the cks77?

    ^As far as i'm concerned. The ha-fxt90 deal is insane. $50 for a pair of headphones that typically retail for over $100? that is ridiculous. If you live in canada I suggest you buy a pair for yourself, and a few more to sell on the forum. i DO NOT suggest you buy them and sell for a large profit.

    The ATH-CKS77.

    I know someone earlier might've given a comparison, but could you give one two dsnuts, and anyone else who has, or has had these headphones? CKS77 vs triple fi 10 vs re262 vs ws55? I know one of them is a overear, but these are my main options. Thanks guys.

    What headphones can you make CIEMS out of?

    Could you explain what BA type headphones are? Yeah, I know I'm a noob :D, i'm not very familiar with the terminology right now. The reason I want to reshell my turbines is because the cable broke, and I don't want to just throw them away even though I bought them for a very cheap price ($40...
