    They sound great and the wood seems easy to finish, especially with such a small project.

    Amp is in great condition with only minor cosmetic wear - small scratch and spot on top of original case, wear on 4 bottom corners. Volume pot makes a soft wooshing sound when swept for the first time when the unit is turned on. Stops after sweeping back and forth. It has done this since I...

    The IEM/Portable Headphones Deal Alerts Thread - Closed! Use the Deals Thread III instead.

    Not sure if anyone mentioned this but Future Shop is clearing out their stock of Sennheiser "Adidas" edition phones. If you're lucky you can snag a pair of the HD 25-1 II for $50 CAD. I paid $40 for the store demo as some one had cleared all the stock in the Edmonton area.

    FiiO E17 "ALPEN" - First Impression + Final Thought

    Have had my E17 for about a week and am really enjoying it. It's such a versatile little unit packed with features. Fiio has come a long way and continues to raise the bar on quality with each of their new products. Love the treble and bass eq. Just what I needed when the black metal gets too...

    Is dust/hairs/fibers a problem?

    Most IEMs have filters on the nozzles and more than likely on the ports, if they have them. So no worries really.

    Should I sell my Beats Pro for AKG701?

    I think that's gonna be too much of a sound signature shock for you. The K701s are about as bass light as headphones get. Very analytical and pretty much the polar opposite of Beats.   There's plenty of good options to ease out of those Beats. Depends what you want? What are you looking for...

    The Monoprice MP9927 PG 208.. MP8320 (MEP-933)..The $7.11 club..

    Quote: LOL no big deal. I think I'll still try to make a custom out of them. I'll use my dremel to trim the shell down to a ring around the driver and go from there.

    how long are memory wire sections on IEM cables supposed to last?

    I'd recommend sealing the end of the memory wire section with a bead of silicon or something.

    Hearing new details in new headphones is a myth

    Hearing new details in new headphones is a myth

    Quote: Pretty much coming to the same conclusion.   I brought both my miracles and ibuds to work tonight to do a bit of testing. Source is an iphone 3GS. I'm finding it very difficult to find details with the miracles that cannot be heard on the ibuds. The closest I've gotten so far...

    What gift for gf?

    You guys kind of missed the part where he said he had no dough. Plus we don't even know if they are seeing eachother before he leaves so that pretty much rules out a vacation. He needs ideas on the cheap, sentimental side.

    What gift for gf?

    From my experience the best gifts are the ones that you put the most effort into. I tend to avoid buying my wife gifts and look to create something for her instead. I'm particularily good at writing poetry so that's been a good avenue. For our anniversary I'm working on a piece of art. In the...

    Hearing new details in new headphones is a myth

      Quote: I didn't say that the details aren't audible on cheaper phones. I said they may be inaudible and that I want to A/B different sets. My experience was subjective, as I only believed I heard new details on good phones and didn't confirm it by referencing cheap phones.  ...

    Hearing new details in new headphones is a myth

    Quote:  I'm pretty sure that frequency response is based on wearing them normally, which is loosely craddled in the ear. When you push them in it changes the perceived frequency response. Monsters may be an exaggeration but the effect is indeed night and day difference.

    Simple Survey on Music Appreciation

    Done. I found the music choices you listed are kind of "hit and miss". For instance, you have a very niche sub genre of metal in "mathcore" but fail to list prime sub genres like "black metal".   Perhaps it's best to stick to major genres of music to avoid having to list a trillion sub...
