    iPhone 3GS remote headset transplantation mod

    Did a mod for the headset that comes with the iPhone 3GS and shuffle 3G (and also works on touch 2G and nano 4G i think). The included headset has a small remote with playback controls and a mic, so I simply transplanted the cord onto a pair of CX300 IEMs. Quick, awesome mod that gives you good...

    I have way more ICs and LODs than I'll ever need so I'm giving away some to deserving homes. Worldwide apply but not shipping to countries with questionable postal systems. The LODs dont work on the new iphone/itouch/nano that requires some resistors and whatnot. To apply, post here with...

    Read threads resetting themselves

    I've had this problem for a while but it's becoming more annoying. Threads that have been read randomly reset themselves to the thick blue text symbolizing "not read", even if no replies have been posted. Anyone else experienced this, and/or know a solution/cause or if its the forum thats bugged?

    Video tutorial: How to make a (small) iPod LOD

    A lot of people have been commenting on my small LODs, and seeing many rigs on here I see many people that could lose half a kg off their rig if they switched out those oversized ones that seem so popular. It's really quite simple, so I made a video tutorial on how to make your own - complete...

    How to: World's smallest 3.5mm DIY plug

    Being bored as usual I started tinkering and what I ended up with is a way to make the smallest possible 3.5mm jack for DIY use in the world. Period. This thing sticks about 3mm out of the female jack when in use, that's it. First, you need a smal plug from a IEM or other bought cable that...

    FrankenFiiO v3 - E3 with volume control, integrated LOD

    Since there apparently aren't any staff on this site and the Frankenfiio v1 and v2 thread I requested moved 5 days ago is still in the same god damn place, I'm making a new thread. This is the 3rd incarnation of my FiiO E3 mod. It started with me needing an amp with a volume control 8for line...

    Stuff Magazine: "Audiophiles get a life, cirrus logic codex is good enough!"

    Just got the newest norwegian stuff magazine with an ipod special. The people writing these magazines have the biggest lack of technical knowledge I have ever seen, its quite amusing. Anyways, in the ipod classic segment they wrote that when it first arrived, audiophiles claimed the wolfson...

    Quickie FiiO E3 mod (woodie, volume control, batteries)

    While waiting for DX to ship my E5 i needed something that could be used with line out on my touch, considering how crappy the headphone out sounds >.< Had a spare E3, and spent 3 hours making it useful. Stripped it, added two parallell AA batteries (the E3 runs on one AAA, so this should be...

    Beyerdynamic DT231 bluetooth mod

    The problem about bluetooth headset isn't the technology, but the headphones. SO I wanted to test how a simple cheap $25 USD AVRCP/A2DP reciever would sound paired with a decent heaphone. I modded my DT231 with a 3.5mm female jack so I could still use wires, and got the reciever. It works very...

    DT231 Detachable cable mod

    Did a little modding to my DT231, added a 3,5mm female jack instead of the cable, and made a 120cm interconnect from the cable. The point of it is to buy some small BT reciever like this one. Since the dt231 has the cable on one side, its a rather easy mod, and there was just enough room to fit...

    iAudio U2 full review

    Thought I'd post this here as to give people a little reminder that this 3 year old player still kicks ass in the ultra portable department. Been using it at work the entire summer and despite bugs it's really grown on me, so anyone who ever considered a tiny mp3 player like the Sansa Express or...

    Bassiest headphones ever, which?

    This might sound very shallow, but I really like bass, so I started wondering: what are the bassiest headphones there is? Also, which ones are bassiest ones that desn't require a headphone amp (to be run off the D2 in any case). Oh, and headphones, not IEms or plugs ^^

    KSC-75: headband/case + wooden caps + metal grill ultra mod

    The KSC has a wonderful driver, but the ear clip style makes the sound loose way too much because they don't sit well enough on the ear, way too loose for my liking. The AKG k412p has a horrible driver in my opinion, way too high frequency oriented for my liking. But they sit damn well on the...
