    HTC Evo Sound Quality

    I used my Blackberry Bold (AT&T) as a player for a while, and it was alright... I thought the first gen iPhone was better sounding, and the battery life is terrible (though others claim that newer revisions of the Bold - mine is a 9000 - get considerably better battery life when playing music). ...

    HiFiMAN 602: Talk about your initial impressions and specs

    The first gen iPhone got over 30 hours of play time - I would know as I had one and it would pretty much last me the entire week on one charge (5-6 hrs a day listening, plus light texting and web surfing.)  The 4th generation that is about to come out is rated at 40 hours playback according to...

    Monster Turbine Pro Copper

    Are you guys wearing yours over the ears or down?  I seem to have fewer (well, no) issues with the eartips when I wear them down - but it is a bit less comfortable (imho).

    Which semi High end iem should i get if i listen to almost everything

    The mids on the TF10 are a bit recessed, but it is still a very good sounding 'phone.  Some people have fit issues, but I personally do not with the TF10.  The Turbine Coppers are probably a good choice for an all-rounder.  I'm not sure about the availability of the DBA-02s. Last I heard, they...

    A tale of 2 IEM's (Montser Turbine Copper 1 vs Monster Turbine Copper 2) How different burnin techniques gave me two unique IEM's

    Thanks for posting the data, it's quite interesting.  I'm not putting too much faith in the iPhone as a dB meter, but who knows. Perhaps you could contact Tyll and see if he could measure the two earphones with his gear, or perhaps run a similar test on other headphones.  Probably busy with...

    head-fi portable forum not about SQ anymore?

    Quote:   What?  Many DAP + Amp combos are significantly smaller and often lighter than the CD Players you consider barely portable.

    Just bought some e2c, on a scale of 1-10, how bad was this decision?

    The Kilpsch Custom line has been discontinued.  If you're interested in the Custom 3, I'd suggest getting it in the near future.  Then again, the e2c has been discontinued for quite some time now, but you can still buy them.   Also, I thought the e2c was a great sounding earphone when I had...

    Triple fi sounds much better amped? ER4P amped?

    The TF10 are bass shy?  Maybe you're looking for something like the IE8 or Turbine Pro Gold.  Bass shy is not a word I would use for the TF10s.

    Test Monster Turbine Pro COPPER Headphones

    I do agree that Monster should disclose the recipients, but AFAIK there is no rule that says they have to.  Perhaps there should be.   Thanks for the update on the shipping.  I'm certainly fine with waiting a while for these to arrive, it's just nice to have a rough idea of when they might...

    [Deal alert] Ultimate Ears SuperFi 5vi Noise Isolating Earphones w/ Microphone $60

    Sure, if you want to pay another 75 dollars to get the version with out the mic, go right ahead... the VI should work fine with an mp3 player though.

    Klipsch Image X10 or Monster Turbine Pro Copper

    Not having heard either, I would recommend the MTPC only because the X10s for having issues with the cable cracking and the Monsters have a pretty awesome warranty.

    Phones with good built in mp3 player

    I've used both my iPhone (first gen, before I lost it) and my Blackberry Bold.  I would recommend the iPhone and not the Blackberry.  I got GREAT battery life on my iPhone (approx 30 hours playtime I think) and really only charged it about once a week.  The iPod software was really nice, as long...

    The Extra Bass of the JH16

    I wouldn't even consider a used custom for more than 50% of it's retail price.  Asking 700-800 dollars for your used JH13 is silly, imho.  JH Audio just had a sale for the JH13 for 899, and that includes full support and warranty.  For those prices, I'd rather wait a little longer for a sale to...

    Anyone ever own/hear Future Sonics (dynamic customs)?

    You know, I'm pretty sure there is an Atrio appreciation thread, but a cursory search is not bringing it up.  Hmm.

    Which IE to be "balanced" in the $300-$400 range???

    IEMs reshelled into Custom Molds $80 in the USA (TripleFi 10, SE530, etc.) from FISHER HEARING

    OK, for whatever reason UE's universal models with a detachable cable uses a slightly different connector than customs - AFAIK virtually all customs use the same connector.  The custom cables can be modified to fit in the TF10 socket, but if you're going to get it customs might as well save...

    Firefox: Connection was reset : The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.

    I am having the same issue - in fact, I had no idea the site was back up until I just tried a non-firefox browser on a whim.  Sometimes I get a blank page, sometimes I get a page that simply says:   "400 Bad Request nginx/0.7.65"

    Review: Clash of the Titans (3D) - JH16 Pro vs. JH13 Pro

    Well, just because one of them sounds more natural (or neutral) than the other doesn't mean the other can't also sound natural (or neutral). But ultimately one is going to edge the other out.

    What gauge wire for custom IEM cable? And also molded UE connectors in HK!

    I bought some of the 28 AWG 19 stranded wire from navships... was only available in bright orange. I'll let you guys know how it is once it shows up... hopefully before the end of the week. Oh, and I would definitely be interested in a few of the IEM connectors if you decide to bring a few back.

    What gauge wire for custom IEM cable? And also molded UE connectors in HK!

    From what I've read, I think 26 AWG is probably the biggest you want with 28-30 AWG being preferred. I'd have to search to find a source (which I don't feel like doing), but those are the numbers stuck in my head. If you have a steady supply for the IEM connectors, you might consider buying...
