    Yamaha HPH-200 (Pictures and review) [Updated]

      I've given these a listen and a bit of a comparison to the ESW9's. The ESW9's appear to be more detailed, with more sub bass and a generally more refined sound. That's not to say the HPH-200's aren't any good - they have a benefit as far as comfort goes - much less "clampy". The HPH-200's do...

    Samsung galaxy nexus

    i have been using alsamixer to reduce the "headset"  volume and get a voodoo sound like experience with my galaxy nexus. only problem is the setting gets forgotten next time the sound stream stops... so very dangerous for the ear drums. would be great if we could get a mod done for this...

    HELP! My esw9 are broken. No no no! - how to repair headband ;-)

    Quote: OK, So I figured it out. You have to take apart the cup mechanism and then you will be able to remove the swivel mechanism and eventually get to the bits of part 22 on their own. I've epoxy'd the part 22 back together, the swivel isn't quite as smooth as it is on the 'good' side...

    Fake ATH-ESW-9? (56K warning!)

    It looks like comparing the fakes and the real ones is getting much more difficult... pretty bad for someone trying to snap up a bargain. I'd be sticking with authorised channels and legitimate second hand ones from head-fiers with good feedback.

    Fake ESW10 pictures vs real (56k warning)

    They do look fake... his response about counterfeit goods wasn't that helpful to his bids either I suspect!   Horribly tempted to bid on them just to find out, heheh.

    HELP! My esw9 are broken. No no no! - how to repair headband ;-)

    I am thinking of super-gluing the part while I try and arrange for a replacement bit... and like others here, am wondering how the hell to dismantle the things. I can't undo screw 22 with the cup there in the way and I can't detach the cup from the hinge (17)

    To raise 8k frequencies on a 5-band equalizer

    If you got a player that is rockbox-able, you can set the EQ parameters in that as well.

    Please help - Best headphones for big beat music

    I like my Audio Technica ESW9's for psychedelic trance... would have generally the same musical elements with faster speed (130-150bpm)

    Can't hear any sounds other than music with ASIO4ALL/foobar2k

    That is normal... this is because the software mixer is bypassed, leaving a pure clean audio stream for the music and the music only to pass through.

    I've been using a Nokia N78 with its built-in 3.5mm headphone jack lately... quite acceptable in my opinion! Much punchier + lower bass than my previous DAP, a Samsung YP-T10. I've been using OggPlay on it, as I have a lot of stuff in OGG format. I also find the built-in mp3 player skips at...
