    Wireless Beats and iPhone - not loud enough

    When I stream Sirius XM audio over my iPhone to my wireless Beats Solo headphones, the volume is good but not great.  Is there any way to insert a portable headphone into the setup and still have a bluetooth connection for the headphones?

    iPhone 6 with Beats Solo 2 not loud enough for the gym

    So I bought these wireless Beats Solo 2 (over the ear) headphones for the gym.  I am playing most songs using the Sirius/XM app on my iPhone 6.  The volume is not really loud enough for the noisy gym for me.  I have a few portable amps (Pico, etc).  Can I connect the Pico to my iPhone using the...

    The Astell & Kern AK120

    I have a question about shuffle play.  I always listen on shuffle play.  I have over 2000 songs on my AK100.  What really bothers me is that my unit behaves like this ... it will turn on the unit at the gym on a Monday and it will play 20 songs during the hour that I am there.  On Wednesday...

    Trouble with my Westone 4A

    About a week ago the right earpiece stopped working while I was in the middle of listening during a workout at the gym.  A few days later both ears were working fine.  Then yesterday the right earpiece stopped again.  This morning, I noticed that there is sound coming out of the right earpiece...

    The New iRiver/Astell & Kern AK100: A High-End DAP

    One feature I used to love with iPod and iTunes was you could create random playlists from music saved on PC and transfer to iPod.  So if I had 250GB of music on PC, I could create totally random selection of 32GB of songs and then iTunes would copy them onto the iPod.  Do you think there is any...

    The New iRiver/Astell & Kern AK100: A High-End DAP

    I have a question about shuffle mode.  I do not have any cards in mine yet, just internal storage.  Most of the time I listen in shuffle mode.  I think I have about 300 songs on my RWAK.  What seems odd to me is it seems like a limited number of songs (say 30 to 40) are shuffling over and over...

    The New iRiver/Astell & Kern AK100: A High-End DAP

    I am having an issue with my RWAK100, I have about 15 gigs of FLAC's loaded on it, no external cards installed.  I usually listen to it using shuffle mode for all songs.  What I have been noticing lately is that every once in a while it will be playing a song and, without finishing the current...

    The New iRiver/Astell & Kern AK100: A High-End DAP

    I am loving my new AK100, especially since I got Vinnies RWAK version.   I am copying music to the device and I need to ask a basic question about tagging.  I have many compilations such as Armin van Buuren albums that have 12 songs all by different artists.  So I don't want to see all these...

    Need bag for iPod, wallet, iPhone, keys

    I'm looking for advice on a hand-held container / bag to help with the above items.  I sorta cringe at man purses, I'm not really a metro-sexual type.  Would prefer something that's not too big.  No backpacks or briefcases.  Don't want a long strap either.  Something I can cram my stuff into...

    Custom ear molds for Shure E5c?

    I'm going crazy trying to find tips for my E5c's. Triple flange, yellow foamies, olive looking things, jeezus ... none of them sound right to me, not enough bass, tough time getting a really good seal ... these are my issues. If anybody can recommend their experiences with custom ear molds for...

    What's the best sounding DAP on the market ????

    I have gotten kinda spoiled my the massive amount of storage capacity of the iPod Classics.  I have been tempted by stuff like the Cowon J3 but I see that the largest capacity is 32 Gig with an SD card slot.  What is the largest micro SD card you can get?  8 Gig?

    Sellers remorse on high end equipment

    Has anybody on here sold a fantastic piece of gear and then later regretted it?  I have listed my Cary 300SEI tube amp for sale because I really need the money towards our new house, but somehow I know I am going to kick myself sometime after it is done.  I had a really nice Ayre CD player and...

    Do any IEM's sound as good as Ultrasone Edition 8?

    So I have been enjoying my Westone 3's for several years.  I use them all the time at the gym out of an iPod.  Always enjoyed them.   And then, something happened.  I bought a pair of Ultrasone Ed 8's and began listening to them a lot at home.  I listen to them thru my Cary 300 and for me it...

    thread (feedback)

    Bought some gorgeous Ultrasone Edition 8's from Adam.  Super nice guy, VERY fast shipping, product was in amazing condition.  The only way it could have been better is if he had sent Salma Hayek to personally deliver the cans!

    Cable problem with Westone 3

    I have had a nice pair of Westone 3's for a few years.  Lately, the sound cuts out on the right ear all the time.  When I wiggle the cable where it connects to the plug, the sound cuts in and out.  Has anyone else had this issue and fixed their own cable?
