    Sony 818 Phones

    The stock earphones that come bundled with the 81x series are pretty decent for what they give you as said previously in the thread. You would be surprised on how they sound for bundled 'phones. The Etymotic ER-4Ps sound great hooked up to my 816 with minimum hiss (you want the less hiss you...

    Looking for a change of pace from the Grado house sound

    From the music preferences stated, Why not give the AKG K601 a try. Wide soundstage and laid back. Smooth, softer sound compared to Grado's in your face sound. Bass extends well on the K601 as well.

    "Proof the iPods white earbuds dont suck that much"-- from Gizmodo

    The new iBuds are definitely an improvement over the previous ones. They are lot better in SQ than lot of the standard earphones that come with many players and any cheap $10 phone but not acutally worth $30 if you buy them seperate. The newer iBuds have a "cleaner" sound and more colored but...

    Why do ppl buy OEM ipod headphones?!

    The average person would not acknowledge or even care about improved sound quality with better headphones. Another thing is they do not wish to spend over $50 on pair of headphones, or even have background knowledge on better audio and how the music is suppost to sound. The point is average...

    Do you enjoy music more since getting into hi-fi?

    Sure do enjoy music more then before, Since I am hearing more detail and realism in the music from better equipment. Music is more appealing in the sense of immersing yourself in it.

    Are these three players drag and drop, for certain?

    Just FYI on the Sony player (if it hasn't been posted yet) when you drag and drop for the mp3s for some odd reason the year of the track does not show up and says unknown on the player.

    What are the best bang for the buck car audio setups?

    ^ Not all car have tiny speakers in the front, just FYI 6x8" in the front and 6x9" in the back for me. But to each preference, If you want your soundstage coming from behind you, do spend money on your rear speakers. Usually rear speakers tend to ruin your front imaging and the soundstage...

    What are the best bang for the buck car audio setups?

    There is a lot you can do for a budget system that has great sound. First, just replacing the speakers will not do that much if your using the factory stereo because the factory stereo cannot supply enough power to make the speakers perform to the fullest; Aftermarket stereo with stock...
