    You know you're an audiophile when...

    You get funny looks in an Apple store when you beeline for the Amperiors instead of the Beats.   Apparently, many just automatically assume teens all go for Beats.

    Quote: Maybe make the memory wire slightly looser? I usually let mine have a bit of room to maneuver/wiggle around the ear so it's comfortable.   The whole cable talk going, I'm eying this one for around Thanksgiving/Christmas....   Seems pretty well built and still uses stock pins...

    Headphone Sightings 2

    Apparently, my local Apple store now carries HD-25 Amperiors. Nice bassy sound sig along with a good level of noise isolation. I'm tempted to hurt my wallet...

    The Beats Pro are rather good (a Beats Pro Review)

    The HDJ 2000's price due to it's being significantly more balanced sounding than all of its other DJ headphone rivals, despite the obvious midbass boost and slight treble roll-off. There's also a mod floating around somewhere that lessens sub bass roll-off.   It's more priced for a simple...

    VSonic GR06: Shure Black Foam or Comply T-100?

    Try decoring a foam tip and shoving it into a fitting silicone tip of your choice. Noise isolation and part of the comfort of foam, but the sound of the silicone. Probably best done with comply foams though.

    Quote: If you take some pliers and flatten the pins on the stock cable again, they'll fit. I had to do that with my stock cable because one side had pins that kept falling out. Quality control issue.

    Any anime series that you've been enjoying?

    Accel World's latest ep was pretty funny.."There's no way my little sister is this cute". Made my day right there, even without subs.

    Quote: Ouch, hope it works out for all the folks that got scammed. Maybe a little humor to lighten the mood then? If only 80's television was reality, then all we need is a certain team of crack commandos that was tried for a crime they didn't commit and also promptly escaped from a...

    Crackling audio. What is the cause?!

    Buy CDs&rip your music from them instead of downloading. We don't exactly support pirating here (hint). You'll be much better off for audio quality. Plus, music from generally sketchy sources can be sub-par in terms of quality.

    Earsonics SM3 vs UE TF 10 vs Westone 4

    Quote: Some people like mids, some don't.     That being said, it sounds like I would be very happy with one of those, as long as it's the v2. TF10 sound sig=boring after a while. Need something to break the mold (and cause further pain to the wallet).

    Earsonics SM3 vs UE TF 10 vs Westone 4

    ^Agreed with above. Many people just can't get it to fit, even with the flip mod. That being said, stock cable is horrendous depending on the weather. If it's warm(60+ degrees), it's decent and not too hard to wrangle with. If it hits 50 degrees or lower, it starts having problems.

    I need an advice between 0 - 99 $ in ear headphones.

    Buy a $100 amazon gift card then, and use it on Amazon. Much easier to pick there. I'd get an SE215.

    UE 10?

    Yup. A bit noisy actually but overall, it's quite good. It's got an upgraded version of the DAC found in the Samsung Galaxy S I, except with more power to play with. Install TouchVol and you get a nice 5 band EQ that's built into the DAC.

    UE 10?

      Quote:   What source are you using? It's a heck of a lot better on higher power sources like a TouchPad. Again, before someone goes and says "but that thing has Beats audio", this one actually doesn't sabotage the sound while it's off.

    Triplefi 10 ordered, anything I need to know?

    iPad...Maybe. If you can run a DT770 PRO 80ohm out of it just fine, then a TF10 will be fine. Reason for this...   Peaks at 64.5, bottoms out at 6.5. Probably needs an amp...

    Value: Fischer DBA-02 MKII, VSonic GR07, ATH-CK10, UE TF10?

      Quote:   TF10 is a fairly safe choice, although you won't get the same bass impact as a dynamic. Generally though, it's got a fun bass and good treble, in terms of extension an detail. Still maintains a sense of balance despite that.   IE8...At 120 quid for an IE8, I'd suspect...

    So many choices, so limited budget :D

    recommendations of IEMs for drummer

    I highly doubt a vented dynamic would work well due to lack of isolation, but perhaps a reshelled one may? Throwing a (somewhat) insane idea out there. Universals in general might be a good idea, since they can potentially isolate better than customs; customs generally cut out ~26dB, whereas...

    Quote:   No. That is wrong, at least as far as I remember. L and R should always face the nozzle. The pin's polarities always go ground -> signal, from the left pin to right pin on each connector, with the letter that says the side facing you. It's also the reason why with Westone...
