    Improved RE0 cable, plug and packing box

    UE Superfi 4 or Klipsch S4

    I can only comment on the Superfi 4, and although I like mine, I think I have to recommend against them for your music tastes. They're a little light on the bass, which doesn't bother me because I'm really not a basshead, but I'd imagine that you'd want a more bass-heavy sound for hip-hop...

    Yuin PK series recabling?

    I'm in the same boat as you with my PK2. They haven't quite stopped working yet, but the cable is very stiff and starting to crack, so I've stopped using them. The closest I've managed to come to solving the problem is finding this guide to recabling the PK2. I haven't been brave enough to...

    Yow, that's a touch big for an EDC, don't ya think? Although, at least something like that would be hard to lose. I've gone through quite a few of my little knives now because they keep disappearing on me! On that note, does anyone have any thoughts on small, relatively inexpensive pocket...

    What is your EDC(every day carry) flashlight?

    My EDC flashlight is just a little, cheap Fenix E01. Well, it was - I seem to have lost it yesterday. Luckily, I've still got another one put away, and yet another still at my boyfriend's apartment. I like the E01 because it's compact, very durable (Type III hard anodizing - hard to find for...

    Dollars Crashing.

    The Canadian dollar has also been rising quite a bit against the USD over the last few days! I'm pleased; I wasn't happy about the decline in my cross-border purchasing power. It's still much lower than it used to be, but it's getting better!

    YOUNG PEOPLE (13>22): how young are you anyway?? (part 1)

    Older than I used to be... and maybe older than I'd like to be, too. But still young enough for this poll! 21.

    My Amp is an explosive..really?

    Whenever I fly with my headphone amp, they invariably check my bag for explosives (which seems like a reasonable precaution to me), but I've never been given any trouble over it. Of course, that's only my experience for security at Canadian airports, and once in Mexico.

    UE Attenuator Impedence?

    Well, for what it's worth, the resistance of the attenuator that came with my 4 is about 115 Ohms, assuming I measured it right.

    Durable replacement for Pk3

    Sorry to hear about your PK3. They're a great set of earbuds; it's a shame Yuin went cheap on the cable like that. My PK2 are headed the same way. I plan to try to recable them when the cord goes completely. If you're after something for the gym, maybe take a look at the Sennheiser MX70...

    Post the last thing you bought. Oh fun!

    Just picked up a 350VA APC UPS for $30.00 CAD at the Futureshop... great deal! I've never seen one that low before, and I've been after one since I put my little desktop machine together. It's not much, but it should be plenty for my computer to weather brownouts and let me save things when the...

    30% off coupon at 8g Fuze under $90 shipped, 4g Clip under $60

    Nice tip! I've been after a little clip-on player for a while... it's a shame the USD/CAD exchange rate kind of ruins the deal.

    Mouse or trackball?

    I thought I'd be all cutting edge and pick up an MX Revolution when they were on sale last weekend, but after using a Trackman Wheel almost exclusively with my desktop for the last three months, using a mouse hurts! I get twinges along my whole arm when I'm using it that disappear entirely when...

    My First Mod (Ep-630 Re-cable)

    I'm impressed! Rewiring earbuds seems like a really finicky task. Did you have trouble keeping the wires separated and sorted out? Also, thanks for pointing us towards those earbuds. My PK2 cable feels like it's going to be in need of replacing pretty soon, and those look like a good...

    How is UE Super Fi. 4?

    I just picked up a pair of these yesterday, actually. So far, I like them. They're very clear and detailed, especially in the upper mids. They also have really wide soundstage, at least of the IEMs I've used (which is admittedly not very many). It's quite a novelty coming from the very...

    Worthwhile to go from Shure e2c to 4?

    I actually quite like my e2c! They aren't much for detail, no, but they've got a warm fun sound to them - at least once they've been modded. I had a bit better luck with my research after I posted, and while I'm not sure the SF4 are going to have exactly what I'm looking for, they're cheap...

    Worthwhile to go from Shure e2c to 4?

    Well, I've been away from here for a while, but I'm getting a touch of upgraditis now and Futureshop has a sale on the UE 4 that has me intrigued. They're $72 CAD at the moment, and I happen to have a FS gift card burning a hole in my pocket to boot, so it's a very appealing deal...

    Flash Drive-Fi

    It makes Speedy Gonzalez look like regular Gonzalez! Well, not really, but it is damn fast, if kind of unreliable. The speed is worth having to reformat it from time to time, though.
