    [PICS] CRACKED OPEN: is e500 really triple driver?

    That makes more sense. If that's the case, I'd say it's almost a marketing gimmick. Although I like ue10 better than the 2 driver sensa because clearer highs, the sensas had better bass with just the one driver. Quote: Originally Posted by milkpowder Yes, but you need 2 crossover...

    SF Bay Area Meet in Marin -- Saturday, October 14, 2006

    Well as for as being a headphone and giving a headphone experience, they may be the perfect headphone. I definately wasn't putting down the system. I was more worried about listening to it and then having trouble enjoying anything else. This would be a big problem because I could never afford...

    Computer Source VS Stand Alone CD Player

    One big advantage is you also borrow your friends and family's cds to expand your collection. If you backup your hard drive, you can also sell your cds if you don't care about the cd inserts. I actually only glance at them one time when I first rip and that's it. If you want spend some money...

    I am in deep trouble thanks to Dr. Lloyd!

    The standard Mapletree looks much better to me, like a 50's kitchen appliance. This still looks retro but more like a 70's computer/gaming device with the lettering on the front.

    Has anyone gone from a class A headphone rig to an IEM and been completely satisfied?

    For portable use, I'm actually thinking of downgrading from my ue10. I'm a big grado fan but never heard the SR-60 until my wife got a pair the other day. I was surprised at how great they sound and they really put a smile on my face. I'm probably going to pick up a pair today and this will...

    Whats a good amp for UE 10pro

    The best I've heard is the HR-2 with an AD797 opamp in it. You might need the gain lowered to get more out of the volume knob but it still has some control at the standard setting. There was no noise or hiss at all with this amp. I cheaper alternative would by the XP-7 and swap in a AD797. I...

    Grado Upgraditis

    I had a sennheiser h650 and planned to buy the SR-225 as a complimentary headphone but ended up liking the sound so much, I got the RS-2. After doing some research, I returned the RS-2 and got the RS-1. I then sold the hd650 the next day and was happy with the RS-1 for over a year. I then...

    Beck - Sea Change

    Here an interesting read about Beck and Scientology. LINK Yeah, Sea Change is a great album and Mutations sounds pretty good too. I'll have to give that one another listen. I've kind of loss interest in his other albums. Too over the top for me right now. I passed on his last album because of...

    Bay Area Meet

    I added your additional information on the first post. I don't know if I have the time to setup and organize the official thread. Once Grahame picks a date based on the poll at the end of the week, can someone setup the new thread based on Grahame's comments below. Thanks. Quote...

    Grado GS1000's, rock and other music

    My biggest problem with the GS1000 is that it lacked the energy of the RS-1 or PS-1 in my setup. For any of my music that required just a little bit of excitement, the GS1000 was missing something. I was able to play around with my amp to get it to have a better rhythm but I lost the fuzzy...

    grado poll

    I just found something unusual. I remember when the picture below was first posted about a half year before any announcement of the GS1000 was ever made, someone thought they were just an unreleased Grado surround sound headphone. Well, just found some pictures of the Grado Dolby Headphone. It...

    grado poll

    This is the point I've been trying to make in other threads. I just can't say it as well as Zanth. Depending on your music and your preference, a large soundstage is not always the best. The RS-1 and PS-1 connects me to the music in a way the GS1000 can't. Unless the black dragon somehow...

    grado poll

    I made the leap to the PS-1 because of the GS1000. When I made up my mind to sell the GS1000 and go back to the RS-1, there just happen to be a few PS-1s available. With the sale of the GS1000, it wasn't a huge investment to get the PS-1. I also figured that if I didn't like them, I'd have no...
