    You know you're an audiophile when...

    You get funny looks in an Apple store when you beeline for the Amperiors instead of the Beats.   Apparently, many just automatically assume teens all go for Beats.

    Ultimate Ears Triple Fi 10 Thread

    Bit of an odd situation occurred when I tried to get another replacement cable from Logitech a few days ago. Their warranty system apparently wouldn't reprocess any claims from the same person twice, even if the warranty is in place. Granted, the guy who I was talking with made a workaround...

    Ultimate Ears Triple Fi 10 Thread

    Quote: Maybe make the memory wire slightly looser? I usually let mine have a bit of room to maneuver/wiggle around the ear so it's comfortable.   The whole cable talk going, I'm eying this one for around Thanksgiving/Christmas....   Seems pretty well built and still uses stock pins...

    Headphone Sightings 2

    Apparently, my local Apple store now carries HD-25 Amperiors. Nice bassy sound sig along with a good level of noise isolation. I'm tempted to hurt my wallet...

    The Beats Pro are rather good (a Beats Pro Review)

    Quote: I wouldn't trust that site considering how common fakes are. Your safest bet for getting a genuine one is probably through Monster themselves, especially on refurbs.   I'm also pretty sure that once in a while, the Pro 900 dips below $300. Not having heard it, I can't tell you...

    Looking Fot The Most Comfortable In Ear Headphones around a 100$

    Bose might be comfortable but it certainly won't last very long...If you're willing to spend that much, maybe consider a Westone 1. Virtually impossible to dislodge and comfortable enough for most to sleep with them on.

    The Beats Pro are rather good (a Beats Pro Review)

    The HDJ 2000's price due to it's being significantly more balanced sounding than all of its other DJ headphone rivals, despite the obvious midbass boost and slight treble roll-off. There's also a mod floating around somewhere that lessens sub bass roll-off.   It's more priced for a simple...

    The Beats Pro are rather good (a Beats Pro Review)

    Pioneer HDJ2000? If you're willing to be a bit spendy, then they're definitely a solid choice. Bassy sound sig without losing out too much on everything else. Looks nice and also built as well as VMODAs, which are notoriously tough. VMODA LP's and M-80's are also pretty good choices that won't...

    VSonic GR06: Shure Black Foam or Comply T-100?

    Try decoring a foam tip and shoving it into a fitting silicone tip of your choice. Noise isolation and part of the comfort of foam, but the sound of the silicone. Probably best done with comply foams though.

    Ugh. UE TF10's

    You sure you didn't reverse the polarity by accident? Sounds like what you're describing as your problem.

    Ultimate Ears Triple Fi 10 Thread

    Quote: If you take some pliers and flatten the pins on the stock cable again, they'll fit. I had to do that with my stock cable because one side had pins that kept falling out. Quality control issue.

    Beats vs alternatives

    Pioneer HDJ2000, Soul SL150 (I'm going to take flak from celebrity headphone bashers for this), and possibly the ATH M50 limited edition sound like they would fit the bill. The rest of Pioneer's HDJ line are also pretty good looking while the SL150 is probably the only good mainstream headphone...

    Any anime series that you've been enjoying?

    Accel World's latest ep was pretty funny.."There's no way my little sister is this cute". Made my day right there, even without subs.

    (Coming Soon!) Klipsch Reference S4 IEMs

    Quote:   You'll notice that it's mostly junior head-fiers that make the comment of Beats being absolute rubbish; I'd gamble that most haven't heard the Pros and/or/nor compared them to other headphones. In all honesty, I'll also agree, Beats aren't terrible. The Pro's sound is relatively...

    Ultimate Ears Triple Fi 10 Thread

    Going back to my HDJ500s just made my TF10s sound really bass light. Result of listening to armature bass for too long?   Aside from that, my UE cable is still holding up, despite massive abuse. The cable gets tugged hard enough to yank the IEMs out of my ears about...Once or twice a day...

    Crackling audio. What is the cause?!

    Buy CDs&rip your music from them instead of downloading. We don't exactly support pirating here (hint). You'll be much better off for audio quality. Plus, music from generally sketchy sources can be sub-par in terms of quality.

    Earsonics SM3 vs UE TF 10 vs Westone 4

    Quote: Some people like mids, some don't.     That being said, it sounds like I would be very happy with one of those, as long as it's the v2. TF10 sound sig=boring after a while. Need something to break the mold (and cause further pain to the wallet).

    Earsonics SM3 vs UE TF 10 vs Westone 4

    ^Agreed with above. Many people just can't get it to fit, even with the flip mod. That being said, stock cable is horrendous depending on the weather. If it's warm(60+ degrees), it's decent and not too hard to wrangle with. If it hits 50 degrees or lower, it starts having problems.

    New $100-$150 Headphones with iPhone Controls

    SE215 with mic cable? Either that or Westone TS1, only ones I can think of off the top of my head. SE215 does have the removable cable so if the cable gets trashed, you can just get another one.

    ATH-WS55 Solid Bass Audio Technica are absolute junk

      Quote:   Well, the cable's even worse as far as most are concerned. At least the right angle UE jack cable actually lasts. The mic one...Breaks very quickly.

    Sick of Apples headphones and still can't find anything to fit my needs. Need Help!

    Why not Westone TS1? I know you find Shure's cables uncomfortable but generally, Westone cables are ridiculously limp and pretty much unnoticeable. No memory wire either.
  23. Byakushiki

    I need an advice between 0 - 99 $ in ear headphones.

    Buy a $100 amazon gift card then, and use it on Amazon. Much easier to pick there. I'd get an SE215.

    UE 10?

    Yup. A bit noisy actually but overall, it's quite good. It's got an upgraded version of the DAC found in the Samsung Galaxy S I, except with more power to play with. Install TouchVol and you get a nice 5 band EQ that's built into the DAC.

    UE 10?

      Quote:   What source are you using? It's a heck of a lot better on higher power sources like a TouchPad. Again, before someone goes and says "but that thing has Beats audio", this one actually doesn't sabotage the sound while it's off.
