    I am DONE with FOSTEX TH900 pads...

    Just took out my stock TH900 and surprise surprise - earpads are disintegrating AGAIN! I'm sick of this, I admit I love the protein pads but this is ridiculous, I don't use my TH900 (I have 2, one stock and one modded) all that much, and every few months I take one out for a listen, and boom -...

    Rec the BEST HYBRID UNIVERSAL IEM you've heard...

    Hi. I have had several iems, from the classic Triple-fi Pro's to my newest, Prophile-8. However, I find that my UM Mavericks still are the best because of the accurate sub bass, BAs just don't cut it for me. I'm honestly looking for the Hybrid IEM that will match my 009+BHSE rig. Price is no...

    Closed-back planars?

    Hello, I'd like some recommendations on any closed-back planar headphones. I don't know there are many of them - I think some LCD- versions were closed.... but I'd like to explore other options as well, if they exist. Assume price is no object. Thanks!

    Help: How's a CIEM supposed to feel in your ear?

    I have a question for regular CIEM users: how is the feeling supposed to be? I ask because I had a pair made, they were so loose I had to refit them. Now they are back and seem ok, but they still dont feel sealed, like for example my iems with tips feel like they are sealed. Also if I speak I...

    My "New" player: Modded Cowon X5L!

    Sorry for no pics... but no outside difference anyway...   Basically a while back I bought a replacement battery for my 30GB X5L which had died years ago. Got it up and running, but realized that hard disk was NOT playing nice - interference from my phone and ESPECIALLY when charging was...

    So my first "non-cheapo" cans were....

    I've always loved music but never delved into equipment that much. Around 2006 I got my first iems (d-jays) and liked them so much I quickly got q-jays when they came out, then TF10s around 2008-9. But remembering further, I recalled I used to have a pair of Sennheisers I bought on a whim one...

    Does a DAC bypass the sound card on my laptop?

    Hi all,   My laptop has terrible sound coming from the headphone jack (compared to my Cowon, for example). I wonder if I could use a DAC, but don't really understand how it works. If I get the "right" DAC, does this bypass the laptop sound card completely, or does it rely on the sound card...
