    The ATH-AD900 Thread

    Hello i own both. the tf10 has more bass, but the ad900s have more quality bass-real punchy natural bass. Sound signature aside, i find the ad900s to be on another level above the tf10. More resolution, bigger soundstage, better extension forward vocals.

    Review: Unique Melody Aero custom triple driver IEM

    Hi project86, thanks for the reply. I am also replying your post for other people for reference, because what i found was that the Aero was an improvement over the re0 especially in the bass department while keeping a similar sound signature and your reply kind of confirmed it. I shall save for...

    re0 v ue700

    No. I don't use them with an amp on the go and i don't enjoy them lesser then i do with an amp. I listen to most modern genres except metal, however, based on my judgement, i still believe that they are on another level and should be compared with the big boys instead of the ue700s. Unless a...

    re0 v ue700

    Hi i have totally opposite views to coolant 8. I think the re0s are in another league compared to the ue700s. the re0s sounds so much more refined when compared to the ue700s.   Highs and mids are more refined and natural compared to the ue700s. Soundstage and sound separation is much better...

    Review: Unique Melody Aero custom triple driver IEM

    Hi, thanks for the reply. How do they differ in terms of sound signature? I was listening to custom version of the UM Aero and was extremely impressed. They were just what i was looking for.

    Review: Unique Melody Aero custom triple driver IEM

    Hello, with regards to "It is not terrible with a basic Sansa Clip or Fuze, but at that point I can think of several cheaper alternatives that will perform nearly as well." may I know what else do you recommend?

    Repairing go-vibe petite portable amplifier

    Uh, im totally new to diying, i do have all the tools required for soldering but i do not quite understand some of the terms used here. May i knows whats a solder wick? "Might have to put more solder in, and flux on top, and wick again" also kinda leaves me clueless.

    Repairing go-vibe petite portable amplifier

    Hello,   I believe that this should be posted in this section of the forum. Is there anyone here skilled enough to diagnose and guide me on how i should repair my go-vibe petite? The issue is that the input socket does not have a good connection with the input jack eg. whenever i put the...

    [REVIEW] Head-Direct RE0 - a new contender for the best IEM

    Hello,   I recently bought the re0s and i would have to say that these are fantastic.   In comparison to the re1s, i would say that it is an improvement over it in pretty much everything. I paired this with a petite amplifier and i feel that the synergy is pretty much fantastic.  ...

    What is YOUR Myers-Briggs personality?

    ISFJ   I kinda expected that head-fiers are mostly introverts. Personally, i think only introverts would analyse things like music of all things.

    Audio-Technica ATH-ESW9A or Denon D2000?

    ESW9 has my vote because its sound is just so much more romantic compared to the d2000s.

    Hippo VB Canal Phones

    My own opinion is that the the vb's feel cheap in your hands and the driver crackles when you insert it into your ear. Sometimes its hard to play optimally when the difference in air pressure affects the driver in my case.

    RE1 + Sony S-Master DAP = stunning!

    I would say that it's quite difficult trying to find the right size for the cotton swab. In my case i wasted about 10 swabs but i still never got the right size. some of it were over muffled while some of them were too small, one small piece dropped into my re1 where i couldnt get it out even:/...

    Hello Head-Fi! Phiaton offers you free gear!

    To me, the most important feature of an earphone is all-roundedness - sound quality, durability, isolation and at the very least, acceptable design for the price. Models like the Westone come to mind In terms of sound, whats most important to me is the mids. This is because most audio...

    Attention everyone! Stop using IEM filters!

    You wouldnt be able to judge with the photo at that size imo. James, i found an optimum size and i still needed a treble boost on the nano to make it sound really balanced, how about you?

    Shure Se530 vs. Shure Se420 vs. Ultimate Ears Triple.Fi 10

    I listened to both and other than ergonomics,i feel that you should get the tf.10 In addition you stand out wearing it and announce to the world that you have a top-tier iem.

    When you place your earphone over the ear

    Hey guys, i think i found the answer! i know its damn lame but, it should be because the waves are longitudinal so it doesnt matter if it's upside down or what as long as it goes into the ear for IEMs. You're welcome for the thanks!

    ESW9A vs ESW9?

    Hi, sorry to resurrect this thread, but apparently, there's a difference in esw9a and esw9 according to graphs by headroom. I guess the difference is pretty subtle though.
