    Any other warranty comparable to Koss?

    I'm attracted to Koss for the incredible lifetime warranty, but when I got researching IEMs it turns out that everybody thinks their IEMs are trash. That said, are their any other headphone companies that have comparable lifetime warranties, OR can anybody vouch for an IEM model that Koss makes...

    Just looking for some education on these two cable types and signal levels. I come from a pro audio background so heres what I know already: I am thinking that since aux cables are generally used for line level signal they would need microphone cable/line level cable, right? Headphone cables...

    iphone sounds just as good as my DAC/amp, to me?

    A question I have wanted to ask for a while but never got around to it. I am primarily an audio engineer so I don't really have an abundance of flagship headphones, but what I have noticed with the headphones that I do have, is that I cannot tell any difference between plugging right into my...

    comply t400 cleaning?

    My tips are sorta coated in in wax with fabric bits embeded on the surface from going in my pocket after use. Can't really pick or scratch it off, so I am wondering if it is safe to dip them in rubbing alcohol or something? or will this ruin them?

    NE-7m tips...

    I literally just got some NE-7Ms that I ordered. Sounds hollow... and midless. Also, the large tips that fit best, and what i normally use, have no bass. The smallest tip seems to fit in loosely but has a good sound, which is weird. Are these supposed to lack mids? Are their better tips out...

    If i get an external DAC... does that replace everything the sound card does? In other words... does a good quality soundcard matter anymore if you have a separate dac? How much is a good dac? and will say... a $200 soundcard be as good as an equivalent DAC?
