    EQ help possibly rock/metal

    I've been using a Fiio X5 first gen for a year now, and until a few days ago I was using some cheaper Sony earphones. Just a few days ago I decided to finally get some decent earphones again and bought a pair of Shure SE3315's. I'm using the yellow foam tips as they seem to be the best. The...

    Bass sub $100 USD

    All right so my brothers mom is asking for suggestions for decent headphones for him sub $100 USD. My brother listens to some rock, some metal, rap, dubstep, he's a teen so whatever is popular, and also bass is the most important quality. I've asked his mother if she is looking for headphones or...

    Need some help from the guitarists of HF

    I need some headphones to use on my practice amp while playing at night and in my hotel. I play metal, drop and lower tunings mostly but I also play some clean stuff. I'm using a Peavey Vypyr 30. Currently I'm using my SR80's but there's a good difference in sound with the headphones compared to...

    All right, so I bought the Cowon C2, been using it for a couple weeks and 3 times now it's screwed up saying a file was invalid, but this last time reset all my settings. I'm wondering if this from transferring large amounts of music at one time or maybe from foobar. I used foobar to rip all my...

    Okay, need a FLAC ripper

    So, I just ordered a 16GB Cowon C2, and have a 32GB microSD, however most of music is in sh!t files. I have a large portion in CD's and need to know a good free program that will rip my CD's into FLAC files, cause what's the point in having great earphones/headphones and crap music files. Help...

    Okay, working 60+ hour weeks, need some help

    So I haven't looked at earphones in some time, I do know eventually I'll get some customs, but right now I'm looking for some good universal. I'm currently using Phonak Audeo PFE-112 I believe, which I bought to replace the Sleek Audio SA6's the dogs ate. I prefer the Sleek's to the Phonak's in...

    All right, need some help, thinking I want a warmer IEM

    I've always used mostly cold and anylytical IEM's, or at least set up the EQ that way, I like my guitars and vocals to be a bit above everything else, not much, just enough. I like a good thumping bass too. However, I am at a budget strain at the moment, I need a PMP and new IEM's, I usually...

    Okay, need some new IEM's again, trying to stretch the budget up

    Okay, the best IEM's I ever had were the Sleek SA6's, I loved those. I most currently bought some Phonak Audeo's, but the eartips did not stay on and I've lost them. I'm not looking to replace the eartips as I didn't really care for them that much. But according the filters of the Phonak's, I...

    Okay, so let's stretch the budget and start asking more about SQ and memory

    So, I've decided I may as well save up and not just get something to tide me over. I want a good solidly built mp3 player that will not break on me anytime soon. I have about 2,000 songs, however they are all in mp3 or wma format of varying quality. I only own the cd's for about half my music...

    Needing some help with a budget mp3 player

    I had a Sansa Clip+ a while back, rockboxed. However I don't understand parametric equalizers so it made it rather difficult to use. I had a Fuze as well, but I gave that to a friend who needed a new mp3 player. Now I am currently using a cheap Sony mp3 player that is buggy and falling apart. So...

    Okay, Sleek has delayed the release of the SA6R's, new suggestions?

    Well I loved the Sleek SA6's I had so unintentionally pre-ordered the SA6R's, and since they have delayed their release, soundearphones has said I can cancel my order. I would only do this if I had a set I would buy as soon as my money came back into my account. So my question is, what IEM's in...

    All right, need some help choosing budget headphones

    I'm much more for IEM's, and I'm currently waiting for soundearphones to get their stock in to ship me a preordered set of some IEM's. But I also like to listen to headphones from time to time, but one of the main issues is that I wear glasses and most headphones start pressing my glasses into...

    Clip+ with Rockbox still not as great as Cowon D2, so which Cowon?

    All right, got tired of trying to figure out parametric EQ's and started using my broken screen D2, so I want to know which Cowon I should get, the O2 or V5? I am looking at 16GB players and will be getting at least a 16GB SD card preferably a 32GB so I can put all my music into at least 320kbs...

    Both the Fuze+ and Clip+ have arrived

    Still waiting on the Sleek's, but it seems to me that the Fuze+ has more bass in the sound. And as I don't like to be overwhelmed by bass, I have chosen to use the Clip+ and the Fuze+ went to a friend in desperate need of a new DAP.   Couple Rockbox questions though. If I install Rockbox...

    All right, need some budget IEMs until I can get some high end ones again

    I have tried a few out, I bought the Marshmellows and Kramer modded them and they were good, but I don't like foam tips, if I could get some bi flanges for them, they would be fine. I bought some Auvio earphones that were good, but the Skullcandy Smokin Buds have better quality, but too much...

    Bi-flanges for Marshmellows?

    Are there any bi-flanges you can buy for the JVC Marshmellows (FX34)? I bought some and Kramer modded them. Then I bought some Comply T400's for them as well. The Comply's are the most comfortable foamies I've worn but, I can't get a seal in my right ear, I did when I first got them but now no...

    Has anyone tried the Nokia XpressMusic 5310?

    I was wondering if anyone had tried this particular model of the Nokia XpressMusic line 'cause I didn't find it in the search. I recently got one when I switched phone services. I like that it has a 3.5mm phones jack so I can use my SA6's with it. But I was wondering what people thought of...

    Something's up with my SA6's

    The SA6's are my first pair of quality earphones so I'm still to the upkeep of them. I've had them for about a year now and now the sound is off. I'm not sure what is causing it or how to fix it. But it almost sounds like a seal break with the left earpiece. I know I have the seal, but it...

    Need to replace my broken D2

    My Cowon D2 has two cracks in the screen making the right side of the side all but useless and I can't send it in 'cause the serial code on the back came off. So, I was wanting to know what some good mp3 players are that are cheap and SD card expandable 'cause I will be getting a 32GB SD card...

    Anyone heard of/tried these before?

    I was in a Radio Shack today which I hadn't been in a while and saw a new brand of IEM there, Auvio. What caught my eye though, was that they come with Comply tips. This piqued my interest, so I thought I'd ask about them. Here is a link to them through Radio Shacks site AUVIO™ In-Ear Headphones...

    Suggestions please

    What are some good cans for all types of rock/metal through a Sansa Clip/Cowon D2 that does not require the use of an amp? I do not have the money for an amp. I am trying to get an idea for what kind of can's I want. And if they could be used with my guitar amp without being ruined that would be...

    Shure is selling them on Amazon for about $280 USD, Shure SE530 Sound Isolating Earphones: Electronics I really wish I wasn't broke right now, hopefully I can come up with the money to buy them. I would really like to compare them to my Sleek's.
