    gym & workout worthy bluetooth iems...

    Just replied to your PM and sticking with the Sony NWZ-WS615 until they die!  Been over a year with them now.  One other thought I had was the overall functionality of the interface.  It's really an intuitive design between skipping songs, volume, playlists, taking calls, etc.  Used them to do...

    Sony SBH80: Wireless to the Next Level: Review

    My Sony NWZ-WS615 BT workout headphones are still going strong a year later.  No, not as good sounding as the RBH, but more reliable.  I use them everyday to workout in, run, and cut the yard and have sweated buckets into them.  For me, I'll take reliability for a gym headphone over SQ any day...

    Sony SBH80: Wireless to the Next Level: Review

    Official swamp ***** alert today in STL.  Just finished the yard and sweated buckets.  615s held up well.  Threw an hour of gym time in before the yard and they continue to impress.  Stayed locked and loaded during cutting grass.  Few times I got sweat lock when looking down, but only lasted a...

    Sony SBH80: Wireless to the Next Level: Review

    EP-SB is great for the gym and working out.  The specific problem I had with them was when running.  I sweat quite a bit when running and that's when they would act up on me.  After a run, they wouldn't turn on for a day or 2.  I think the problem was sweat getting into the microphone hole...

    Sony SBH80: Wireless to the Next Level: Review

    The Sony NWZ-WS615s came in today, but a little too late for a work 5K event we had this afternoon.  So, haven't "field-tested" these yet.  However, I've spent the past couple of hours getting them up and running.  Paired with my HTC M8 without an issue and tried streaming some Pandora via the...

    Sony SBH80: Wireless to the Next Level: Review

    I think olear and I are after the same bogey. Looking for a good sounding BT sports bud. I've been trying all sorts of wired / wireless combinations for the past 3 years. The BlueAnt I referenced in an earlier post went belly up 2 days ago as I was finishing up a run and it started pouring...

    REVIEW: WESTONE 3, the ULTIMATE UNIVERSAL IEM vs everything else

    I've been chiming in every couple of days about my W3s, and thought I'd post a few more thoughts. I tried the Shure black medium olives again yesterday for giggles and was ready to return them (the W3s). I just could not get a good sound out of them. I would try the Acoustic setting and it was...

    REVIEW: WESTONE 3, the ULTIMATE UNIVERSAL IEM vs everything else

    So, for grins today I put some the Shure medium olives on my W3s today. I learned 2 things from this. They made the W3s more streamlined in my ears as I was using the tri-flanges, and they stuck out a little bit. I thought, wow, this is nice to be a little more tucked into my ears. Second, I...

    Cheapest online prices for Shure SE530 and Westone 3?

    OneCall is a pretty stand up operation, and I would think they are authorized. I've done business with them before and they are buttoned-down.

    Anyone dissect the Shellbrook Mini Head?

    Might want to contact N_Maher. I sent my Maxi Moy Signature to him a few months ago, and he was able to get it up and running again. Also, sent him a couple of other Maxi boards to do whatever he pleased with them.

    Anyone dissect the Shellbrook Mini Head?

    Actually, Shellbrook is no longer in business, and you would be best served to not buy any of his amps used. Let's just leave it at that.

    Sellbrook Audio (Drew) Finally Calls It Quits

    Check out what I was greeted by when typing in www.shellbrooklab.com. Looks like he's finally getting out of it altogether. Here was the note I sent him: Warranty service...you got to be kidding me right??? I've been trying to contact you since beginning of January via e-mail and phone...

    Just Received ALO "Copper Dock"!!!

    Well, I e-mailed Ken last week about what would be suit my needs for a line out dock for my 5.5 80GB ipod. Said I wanted something more flexible than the silver six shooter, but didn't want to break the bank on a Cryo. He was very quick in replying that he is going to start offering a "Copper...

    portable speakers for the ipod

    I was at a BB out here in CA today (on vacation) and they had a Monitor speaker unit and Mirage unit that looked quite interesting. I know each's regular speaker lines are well-regarded. I know the Mirage has a line in as well as the ipod dock, but not sure about the Monitor. Athena has an...

    Toddler Headphones???

    Hey, guys, quick update on this. We flew from St. Louis to Santa Barbara, CA, yesterday with a layover in Salt Lake, and the Sonys worked like a charm!!! It entertained him just shy of an hour when watching Bob the Builder / Thomas the Train on my laptop. This is pretty good for any 19 mo. old...

    Does anyone out there have experience with outfiitting their young children with some headphones? I'm leaving for Hawaii in a couple of days, and will be taking the laptop, and trying to keep my 19 month old somewhat entertained by playing some DVDs on it, but not sure if he'll leave a set of...

    portable speakers for the ipod

    Funny the timing of this thread as I'm leaving this weekend on a trip to Hawaii, and wanted to bring the 5G along and a portable speaker rig for some tunes while hanging out in the condo we're staying at. In a beer-induced impulse buy, I ordered a JBL On-Stage II directly from Harman Audio (my...

    Power Supply for Shellbrook Maxi Moy

    Hey, all, I recently sold my Shellbrook Maxi Moy to Drivel through this forum, and we think the power supply that I sent with it is acting up a little. Does anyone have any recommendations on a power supply model that will fit the backplate of a standard Maxi? It was built last September and...

    HD 595 Amp?

    I'm using a Shellbrook Audio Lab Maxi Moy with my HD-595s, but mainly for watching movies and it seems to do a fine job in rounding things out, especially adding a little extra bass on them. Really does a nice job on dialogue as well.

    reciever headphone out question

    I have a Marantz SR-5500 in my 2nd system that I use with a pair of Senn HD-595s for watching movies and it has the DH option. I really, really, really enjoy watching movies using the DH. I run a line from the headphone out on the receiver to a Shellbrook Maxi Moy amp and then into my 595s...
