    Recabling supplier help

    I really love my ATH-AD900X cans but I HATE the cable! The time has come after 5 years to rip it out. I'm trying to source a 3.5 panel jack so I can convert these to removable instead of fixed cabling. I'm having a hard time finding parts that don;t seem like junk. I'd love to be pointed in...

    Still looking......please help. Under ear IEMs or very small closed on ear

    OK the Final E3000/2000 are looking good. Low impedance. Are they closed though? I can't find a word on it. I'm also having a hard time telling the difference.

    Still looking......please help. Under ear IEMs or very small closed on ear

    OK, though I know it's ridiculous, I've yet to find anything that replaces my old UE Super.fi 3 IEMs. I've tried a lot but just can't get any satisfaction. I don;t follow the forums much anymore so I am hoping for some leads. I need something with the following criteria: - $100 range - IEMs...

    Google Pixel help

    OK, I've tried to read through some threads but I've not found my answer (though I have come close to finding what I suspect). I'm now on yet another set of IEMs to pair with my Pixel (not the XL). The last were the FiiO EX1s, which had very nice sound but were way to open. Now I;ve moved on...

    You must have missed the bit about price point.

    13 yr. old son looking for MP3 player

    My son thinks he needs a dedicated player.  Frankly I think his Nexus 6p is good enough but it's his money so....   He's looking at the FiiO X1 and I'm wondering if there is anything to compete at that price point?   Cheers.

    Beyerdynamic 990 Pro 250 ohm vs Audio Technica ATH-AD900X

    Well I couldn't resist the Amazon deal on the Beyers so ordered some.   I've now tried them against my ATs and am wondering if they need either some burn in or a better AMP.  I'm running them both through my Topping TP30 DAC/AMP and frankly the ATs have WAY more sound stage and are way more...

    UE Super.fi 3 - down for the count. Need help with new IEMs with Mic.

    I have been using Super-fi 3s for about 6 years now and love them.  The signature is just right for me and I love the fit.  I bought 2-3 pair years ago when they were cheap (I never paid more than $35!).  Unfortunately my last pair is on it's last leg.  The connector has cracked.   The bright...

    USB DAC/Amp from Amazon? Emergency!

    Anyone recommend a moderately priced USB DAC/Amp from Amazon?   My trusty FiiO E10 isn't happy with my new PC (works fine with my old PC though!).   Thought I'd try something new.  Need it asap, can't stand using on screen volume control!

    I hope your'e wrong.  The whole point of an external DAC/AMP is to avoid this crap!

    I've checked everything.  It's driving me nuts.  I never had this problem before.

    Alternative to Dayton B652 and Lepai in Canada?

    I'd be willing to sell you mine.  I bought two sets, one for office one for work.  The work one is in a box, used only a handful of times.

    Thanks, will do.   Unfortunately I spoke too soon.  Still getting drops and skips.  It;s really maddening!

    [Impression] FiiO E10

    Is it just my experience or is the E10 really fussy?    I bought mine in 2012 and have loved it.  Other than a dirty volume pot (which I'm not sure how to fix) it's never had a problem.   Now I build a new PC and it's skipping and dropping all over the place.  I've moved it away from the PC...

    Collecting Classical: help with ID3 please

    OK, so I have no problem with most of my collection, i.e. all other music genres.   Unfortunately I've put off ripping a 100+ of my Classical discs because I find the taging daunting.  The few I've ripped are just a mess.  Sometimes I get Beethoven catalogued as composer, sometimes as artist...

    Audio Technica ATH-AD900x Impressions Thread

    Anyone have these recabled yet?   I love these cans but not too keen on the cable.  I don't mind the length so much but I'd much prefer a fabric style cable for flexibility.  This cable is just too stiff.
