    Nobsound NS-08E also know as Nobsound 6J9 hybrid tube amp

    Good find. Have you tried it with an efficient portable such as the px100-ii? Would the gain be too much?

    Headphone Recommendation - Very Frustrated

    While I haven't heard them , I'm considering some Goldring dr150s myself. They're said to be AD700 level of SQ with more bass and a fairly decent soundstage ( Not as much as Ad700 but more than Grado) .. Take my suggestion with a grain of salt ! They're inexpensive in the UK , not sure if...

    Sansa Fuze and Podcasts

    I have been using my Fuze for a couple of months now and am overall quite pleased with it. My only problem with it is that my podcast ID tags are a mess. Half of them end up under the 'unknown' tag. Is this something I can change easily or is this the fault of the podcaster not tagging them...

    Soundmagic pl-30 20.00 shipped

    Mine were delivered in 8 days from focal-price. First impressions were a little underwhelming . After a week of listening they've smoothened out a little and I can full enjoy them for what they are : AMAZING for what I paid. IN my opinion they are slightly better than ksc75 or px100...

    Did I Get Fake PL-30s?

    I too find it hard to discern between normal and bass-settings, They're quite neutral .. this is coming from a pair of ksc75s . They do sound good for 20 dollars, better than those horrible JVC fx66s, but they still have a little of that signature IEM harshness in the highs , not bad by all...

    best DAP for audio?

    My best sounding player to date is the cowon CW-300... an oldie ( 2003) but still good 512mb space + AA 30hours battery. Got it for 10 dollars. Its soundstage is huge, and the bass is amazing. It sounds great with big cans too, akg k501 and MBquart qp55x ... It's better than- Rio carbon...

    Cheap IEM's for the gym...

    the tc20's are similar to the mylarones.... From what I've been reading, they need an amp to sound good.... While the jvc air cushions don't offer top SQ, they are very comfortable and stay put. I think you;ll like em for using in the gym.

    Not sure what they are exactly...not a voice coil for sure. they need some space to sound their best , when looking closely I only see a thin type of foam sheet , at the back and the front as well. Also, they are sensitive to positioning, directional. They sound different from more...

    Which Earbud?

    I don't think their cord is too long, it's shorter than my px100 cord and that one is just right....

    Looking for some good quality earphones - nothing too fancy

    IEM's or canalphones are not really comfortable ... for comfort the sennheiser px100's or yuins are a good choice.
