    Guild Wars 2

    Anyone else excited for Guild Wars 2? I played a lot of Guild Wars and am ready to start the sequel. An MMO without a subscription fee, and a great one at that. The first public beta weekend starts in an hour and a half, I'm all set up to go. More people playing this weekend?

    Head-Fi 2009 Christmas Gift Exchange Whadjaget? Thread

    I haven't seen a Whadjaget? thread for this year's X-mas exchange yet, so I thought I'd make one again. I had a feeling there were less participants than previous years. A shame, because picking out music to give a total stranger is a lot of fun and it's even more exciting to get music you...

    I traded my RSA Hornet for shadesbass' Shure E5c + cash. Conversation was pleasant, payment and shipping swift, and the product is in the promised (new) condition. I would gladly do business with shadesbass again. Recommended.

    Hornet: European adaptor?

    Since I'm in Europe, where we have 230/240V with double round prong wall warts, does the Hornet come with a compatible adaptor or do I need to go out and buy a Europe -> US converter to stick the US adaptor (120V, double flat prong) in?

    HD650 question (with iRiver H340 and Hornet)

    Hey gang, I've been looking (and reading a lot) at the HD650. I was going to order it last week from the internet, but they were just out of stock. I hadn't auditioned them or anything before. Now today, I went to a random electronics store, and there they were, the HD650s! For a good deal...

    Good Senn HD650 price Netherlands?

    Hi guys, I'm very interested in buying the HD650. I'd be using it with my iRiver H340 and a RSA Hornet. However, the problem is the pricing of this particular headphone in the Netherlands. Prices at shops are regularly €399, and Dutch internet shops sell them for €333-399. I think these...

    iRiver H340 -> Amp? -> Shure E4/future audiophile phones

    Hi, I'm in need of some portable amp advice. I currently own an iRiver H340 and a Shure E4. I love this combination, but I feel the bass is a little bit on the soft side. I don't really use EQ's, because I want to hear the music like it is recorded. I mostly listen to pop/alternative pop...
