    The best earphone in the world......

    I think it's interesting how almost nobody here has tried the ES3's. Any word on those?

    how do you clean your canalphones?

    My tri-flanges get all icky yellow sometimes on the tips, and isopropyl alcohol does an okay job of cleaning it up. I usually just let it sit in alcohol, go do something for around ten minutes, come back, rinse them in water, and let them dry. Also, note the crucial step: LET THEM DRY...

    Just got my e2c's today... Thank You!

    Yeah, the worst thing about this Hi-Fi business is that the biggest performance leap you'll ever see is likely to be your first, and you'll spend the rest of your life trying to feel that sensation again. crappy-generic-earbud -> Shure E2C. Total cost: ~$60. E2C -> SR-71 + UE-10 Pro...

    Please help! E5c's broken?

    Let me guess: did the problems occur right after you cleaned an earpiece? Water is running into the earphones, which causes this. Took me a few weeks to figure out what was going on .

    MD33 vs E2c

    Yeah, I also emphatically disagree. The highs are far from golden, but if the Shure highs are rolled off, the EX71SL does not have highs at all (in my opinion).

    MD33 vs E2c

    Too tired to post anything lengthy, but I've heard both, and my impressions were (keep in mind, impressions) that E2C's had the MD33's beat in bass and overall sound quality, but for the price and comfort, I preferred the MD33's. This may change once the soft-flex sleeves come rolling out for...

    What do you guys think of Koss', The Plug?

    Try search. But to give you the consensus briefly: it sucks.

    Need advice ... lost my E4P's

    Try the Westone UM2's. They're cheaper than E5's, and about 80% of people who have tried both UM2 and E5 prefer the UM2 (that's my general impression from the board, since I haven't tried the UM2's).

    Troublesome HD650 burn-in

    Well, you can pause overnight, but then it wouldn't be burning in for that period of time .

    is it just me?

    Yeah, same here. I use a cut pair of tri-flanges on my E5C's, and although they stay in relatively well while sitting down, if I exercise with them, the left one always seems to slowly slide out while the right one stays in.

    If you had won the lottery what would you buy?

    I'd buy Grado (the company, not the headphones) .

    How long does it take to get a reply from

    Yeah, I e-mailed them about a week ago about the MS-2 and they have not responded to date. I don't know, but let's just say that I, for one, value customer service highly when I choose a product...

    lack of grado comfort seriously exaggerated?

    I don't have a huge problem with Grado headphones either. They're not uncomfortable per se, but they're definitely not comfortable. The people who are crying about comfort issues are the ones spoiled by the Sennheiser pillows . Also, those who complain about comfort: have you tried the...

    helpppp "Ultimate Ear" or "Sensaphonics" or "Westone"

    What is sort of ludicrous about this poll is that sixteen people have voted. How many people here have the UE-10, 2X-S, AND the ES3? Even one? Really, what you're getting is closer to "who owns what" than "which product is better."

    The Most Comfortable Grados Ever

    I imagine it would muffle the sound, but if you're studying intensely, then music kind of just becomes background noise anyway. Critical listening would probably be another deal.

    Computer vs. CD Player as Source

    I will be using the computer as a source with an Emu 0404/1212m in the near future, but I was wondering about what those experienced with both expensive CD players and the relatively cheap alternative of the computer as source thought. Wow, that was a long sentence. Okay: Basically, is...

    sik din vs. pocketdock

    Well, just think about it. Does it make sense to spend 100 dollars on an interconnect to use with your 80 dollar headphones? Especially with a portable (crap) source, and given the fact that the interconnects are short, I don't think it would make a huge difference.

    Are the shure e3c worth springing from e2c

    Oh, god. I read that first post quickly and thought that you HAD a pair of E2C's already. Sorry. Yeah, buy the E3C's. The E2C's, as they stand, are not comfortable at all. That alone is almost worth the spring to the E3C's.

    Grado SR-125 impulse buy

    For $150, you probably would've gotten ripped. For $95, I'd say keep them and be happy . $95 is what most people pay for SR80's.
