    Best Computer Audio Player Software?

    Thanks for the MusicBee recommendation.  Very well-rounded software package.  It sounds great and the additional lyrics and artwork selection while online make it a really enjoyable music player.  Still playing with the many other included features.

    Best Computer Audio Player Software?

    There's a new FREE audio player that I'm currently using called GOM audio player from GRETECH Corp.  So far, I'm fairly impressed especially with its natural sounding EQ and a varied set of interesting Effects that can be switched on/off (Reverb settings, Backwards music, Room emulations, Bass...

    Philips Fidelio X2?!

    My Woox X2 pads have no glue and adhere to the cups very well.

    Thanks for the excellent review, bestula.  My Purpleheart TH-X00's aren't due to arrive till August and I also have the X2's and HD540 to compare sound signatures.  Hopefully my observations will mirror yours.  Excuse me while I "hurry up and wait" for a few more months.

    NEW! Fostex TH610 Premium Reference Closed-Back Headphones

    I was seriously going for the TH-610 but the massdrop TH-X00 Purplehearts look just too lovely to ignore.  The only downside is there are not expected to ship till August.  My Philips X2's will certainly hold my attention till then.  Looking forward to comparing the sound signature of these two hps.

    The JVC FX850..Woodie perfection?. (A review)

    After a year of daily use/abuse at work the right side MMCX cable connection on my FX-850 has become intermittent where the cable meets the connector.  Does anybody have any recommended replacements?

    Philips Fidelio X2?!

    After painstakingly removing the left side driver and attempting to disconnect the cups from the glued plastic pivot posts, I finally gave up scraping off glue bits and just re-tightened the screws with a pair of tweezers from the outside.  Now that I'm aware of the problem, I'll just check...

    Philips Fidelio X2?!

    Thanks very much, thesmokingman!  I'll have to give your suggestion a try to fix the loose screws.  What kind of mods are you doing to the X2?

    Philips Fidelio X2?!

    The loose screws are also occurring on my X2s.  What I want to know is how to FIX the problem.  I absolutely love these cans and have no desire to return them.   I suppose I could use needle-nose pliers and tighten them up a bit but they will eventually work themselves loose again without...

    Philips Fidelio X2?!

    Thanks for mentioning this Moonbogg.  After reading your post, the left side of my X2 screws are also definitely loose.  Just how to access these loose screws is a real problem.  The other screws on the ear cup pivot points don't seem to want to unscrew at all.  One is plastic (possibly just...

    Philips Fidelio X2?!

    Some good news to report on my X2s.  I've had my X2s for about seven months now (Woox unglued, no ink bleed) they initially had a rather dramatic channel imbalance favoring the left channel.  I loved the SQ so much that I refused to send them back to Amazon hoping I could find a cure for this...

    Fostex x Massdrop TH-X00 Review

    Nah, my use of the phrase "I can't wait" was just a bit of hyperbole and venting some like-minded frustration & anticipation with fellow TH-X00 massdropster Oink1.  My Philips X2s will tide me over nicely till May rolls around.

    Too bad it isn't compatible with the original X5.

    I just joined the second Massdrop of the TH-X00.  These cans are selling fast.  2 1/2 days and this second batch of 1000 units are sold!  The only downside is that there's about a 90 day lag till delivery.  May the time pass swiftly. . .  Looking forward to comparing them with the Philips X2 and...

    Philips Fidelio X2?!

    As someone who is old enough to have attended Woodstock in 1969, I concur with your findings, chry5alis, regarding what a sonic joy it is to listen to X2s and quality EDM music.  Your two cited examples are excellent. That kind of music never appealed to me at all UNTIL I bought the X2 and...

    Fostex x Massdrop TH-X00 Review

    The comparisons between those two woodies will be interesting.  I've been very satisfied with the JVC FX850 over the last year and listen to them for hours every day at work.  Their attractive wood enclosures and golden brass accents immediately caught my eye.  At home I tend to resort to the...

    Fostex x Massdrop TH-X00 Review

    I'm also in this TH-X00 drop party!  Looking forward to comparing these with the Fidelio X2 and Sennheiser HD540 and JVC FX850 IEMs I currently own.  There's just something special about wooden headphones.  May the time till their delivery pass quickly. . .

    Thanks manaox2.  Milkdrop is a gorgeous & timeless visualization experience.  So nice to have it running with Foobar2000.   A blast from the past. . .

    Fostex x Massdrop TH-X00 Review

    Your impressions are likewise well appreciated, marts30.  It appears we all perceive HP sound signature comparisons with our own individual preferences.  I guess I'll just wait for the next TH-X00 massdrop and draw my own conclusions.  In spite of the X2's flaws I've been very satisfied with...

    Philips Fidelio X2?!

    The JVC FX-850 are IMO a very comparable sounding IEMs and the wood/brass enclosures are very attractive.

    Philips Fidelio X2?!

    It's so nice to hear from fellow contented X2 owners!  What's not to like about a reasonably priced set of cans with a great build quality, look great, are very comfortable, have replaceable cables and pads and have an engaging sound signature that works well with various styles of music?  They...
