    Earphones known for their durability?

    Hey there guys, I like to use headphones at home, but when I'm on the go, I like to use earphones as they're much more convenient. I pretty much try to always have some earphones on me, they're usually earphones in the 30-60$ range. Most of the time, these earphones last on average 6-8 mths...

    Sony MDR-V6s alternatives?

    Hey there guys!   So I personally love my Sony MDR-V6, and I've had them for about four years now. I still love the sound of these things and fit and everything, but after four years things are starting to deteriorate. The earpads are pretty much coming unbound and flaking, which isn't a big...

    Looking for affordable, DURABLE earphones

    Hey there guys! Looking for a quick suggestion on durable earphones. In the past 2 years I've gone through tons of earphones, from SoundMagic PL21s, Brainwavz M1s, JVC Black Edition Earphones (those carbon nanotube ones) and a couple others, and they have ALL broke in one way or another. I...

    Need a good IEM (<60$ CAD)

    Hey there guys! So my earphones (Brainwavz M1) are starting to die after 10 or so months. While they did have pretty good sound quality, I'm quite dissapointed as they were supposed to have "amazing build quality", and didnt quite live up to that. So I'm looking for a new IEM thats <60$...

    Looking for good IEMs (75$ CAD)

    Hey there, as the title says, I'm looking for some new IEMs. My last pair, the JVC HA-FX40 were pretty decent but the left earphone just died out earlier today, hence why I'm looking for a replacement (they lasted 4-5 months, just in case anyone was looking at the FX40. Obviously I could've...

    Pearstone Pads for MDR-V6?

    Does anyone know where to get them? The usual source for them a few months ago was BHPhotoVideo, but they seemed to have discontinued the line.   I was debating between getting the Beyerdynamic pads and the Pearstone pads, and heard that the Pearstone doesnt change the sound signature while...

    Sony MDR-V6-like IEMs?

    Long story short: Love the MDR-V6. Love absolutely everything about it. Durability, comfort, sound signature, etc. I use them everywhere.   Only problem is, they're just a bit troublesome to carry everywhere sometimes. So I'm looking for an IEM to match them.   Are there any affordable...

    So what's after the MDR-V6s?

    Just poking around, I know these headphones usually aren't peoples favourite headphones, but they are well respected. The thing is, I've tried lots of other headphones, and the V6s are indeed MY favourite headphones ever. Durability is off the charts, nice rugged style, and sound, while I have...

    What're Head-Fi'ers Star Signs?

    So today I was sortof reflecting as to how I usually have the better things of all my friends even though I have less money. They have Beats, I have MDR-V6s, I know mine are better, and they do too. They have computers with random setups and they only know more RAM = better, while I have a great...

    Help me pick my next budget IEM amongst a selection?

    Long story short, I had 2 IEMs; a Sony MDR-something something; they were great, but now discontinued. I gave these to a friend who really needed some IEMs as he had no decent ones and he was a piano player and used his iPod heavily; dude needed em.   I also had Senheiser CX250s, which got...

    My laptop's headphone jack broke

    'Tis a sad sad day when I plugged in my headphones a little too hard from an aggravated day, and physically broke my headphone jack.   I'm thinking getting it repaired will be too expensive, or just plain undoable, I will get an estimate on the repairal of it when I can (it's weekend so cant...

    Need a little help with MDRV6 mods

    So here's a few things I want to do with my V6;   - Remove the static shock - Make the headphones easier to drive/louder - Make the bass have a little more quantity or impact (something to freshen up the bass) without hurting anything else of the sound signature, including the highs. -...

    Suggestions for Sony MDR-V6 Mods or Additions/Accesories

    I'm really wondering what I can do with my Sony MDR-V6s. I really do like the sound signature, it's perfect for me, and I'll probably be looking eventually (not anytime soon) to get another Sony in this family to have a similar sound signature with better quality.   But, for now, I want to...

    I've found my headphone series, I'm sold. MDR-V6

    Now I've been around the forums lately mentioning my V6s for awhile, before I got them and after, and I gotta say. I've tried Grados. Not for me. I've tried Sennheisers. Nice, but not for me. I've tried Shures. Nice, but uncomfortable and not durably and just cant stack up to all the other...

    Fiio E6 hacking radio waves?! Honest!!

    I dont know what I'm going to have to do to record this if no one belives me, but I SWEAR this is happening! If I partially unplug the Fiio chord (hooked up to my MDRV6 on the outpot and my laptop on the input), my music somehow seems more shallower, BUT I hear a news report from someones radio...

    So I got my Fiio E6 in the mail like twenty minutes ago.

    Now, I'm not really all that much of an audiophile, I'm more about the portable rig, and even my current headphones arent very good (Sony Giiqs. I used to have DJ-RPS400s from Panasonic, but I refunded those cause they kept breaking to get my first real decent set of phones. The MDRV6 :) It's...

    Explain a few things to a newbie? A large assortment of questions

    Alrighty. So I'm pretty newbie around here, but even though I'm a youngling of 15 year old, I absolutely refuse to be those minions at my school who have Beats or Skullcandies and think they're the best without having ANY open mind. So that's why I bought Sony Giiqs and now I'm on my Panasonic...

    About 70$, need durable, good headphones. Got a reccomendation?

    Imagine you have about 70$ to buy durable, good-quality, and stylish headphones (style isnt so important here, but should be kept in mind), and they should also be lightweight, now to you guys, 70 bucks is pocket change when it comes to headphones, but since I only have a part-time job and am in...
