    Hifiman HE400 -- Where's the bass??

    I bought a Fii0 amp.  Can't really say it made any noticeable difference, except it lets me play louder.   The pads seemed to help. I'd say a big difference between these and the Grados seems to come down to the fact that these are over the ear, vs on ear.  The Grados being on ear really...

    Hifiman HE400 -- Where's the bass??

    So getting back into this hobby after quite a break, I've just purchased a pair of HE400 to upgrade from the old pair of Grado SR80 that I own.  I was hoping for much more low end from everything I read, but I plugged them into my laptop and they sound flat and thing.  Lots of detail on the high...

    Getting ear pain and infections a lot -- recommend headphones for sleeping

    Hi all,   So over the last few years, with the advent of podcasts, sleeping with my headphones in has become something I do every night.   Recently though, I'm getting more and more pain in my ear canal from sleeping with in-ear monitors. I'm not sure if it's small infections, or just...

    FS: Klipsch X10 headphones new

    LordofVolume, how did I make 'us' look like jerks.  You look like a jerk, and you didn't have to.  You could have apologized and made an effort to rectify the situation but instead you have done the opposite and refused to admit that you've done anything wrong.    Don't tell me what I got or...

    FS: Klipsch X10 headphones new

    Hi, I'm back from vacation and am glad to see this thread got some attention.   LordofVolume, I think there is very little room for confusion in the language you chose to use to describe these headphones.  Mine were neither sealed, nor in any original packaging.  If they were refurbished...

    Canon 50mm f/1.2 L, talk me out of it.

    This is a really, really overpriced underperforming lens.   Get the 35L or the 85L if you insist on spending lots of money.   The 50 is terribly soft wide open.

    FS: Klipsch X10 headphones new

    I just received my pair of x10s from Lord of Volume and unfortunately I cannot recommend purchasing a pair from this seller.   He states in this thread in response to someone asking 'new as in with original packaging' that 'yes, they are sealed from Klipsch' but what I recieved was a pair of...

    Purchased a pair of Westone UM1s in person from him in Toronto. The headphones were just as advertised, and all boxes, accessories were included. His emails were prompt, forthright and pleasant. Based on this transaction, I would recommend this seller.

    Quality of Shure Products?

    Hey guys, A couple years back I bought a pair of Shure E4 ear canal headphones. Although a little thin on bass, I was happy with them while they worked. Last year the left channel began intermittently cutting in and out. Fiddling with the cable helps to restore the sound, but it's a constant...

    IC: Faulty Shure E4 headphones

    Hello, I've posted before on the DIY forum, that I have a pair of Shure E4s that intermittently have problems with the left channel. This is a cable/plug issue. Rather than have them repaired, I'd be happy to just sell them. I don't use them very often anyways. If anyone who has basic...

    Need the help of a UK DIY'er

    Hello, I'm currently trapped in Mansfield, UK, and my Shure headphones are in need of repair. I think it's a simple job, from what I can tell there is a loose connection in the miniplug because the sound from the left channel sporadically cuts out and fiddling with the cable at the point the...

    repair my headphones???

    yes, i've checked it with various sources. it's definitely the headphones. to be honest, i'm quite disappointed with these Shures, but have already sunken the money into them. I contacted them and their standard charge for repairing them is ridiculous.

    repair my headphones???

    i've got a pair of Shure in ear headphones that are in need of repair. Sound is only coming out of the right channel and I assume the problem is in the connector plug because fiddling around with it there can get the sound back occasionally. i lack the skills to change the plug and am...

    Annoying pops and crackles

    i downloaded that program and it seems like the computer is fine, except for spikes once in a while which I can't seem to get rid of. so you were saying that the pops and crackles didn't go away with the addition of a soundcard? i know there is a separate issue of the buzz and hissing...

    Annoying pops and crackles

    Hey guys, when I listen to music on my HP laptop with Conexant HD Audio, it often sounds like a bowl of rice krispies. does anyone else have this problem? I've tried different media players, but it seems that the problem is with Vista or the soundcard, because I get it regardless of the...

    ultimate isolation?

    So, living in Poland now and taking lots of buses and trains i decided to get a pair of IEMs, the Shure E4's. While I'm impressed with the sound, especially the size of the soundstage, I'm disappointed by how much isolation they offer. Was it unrealistic of me to expect that when I put...
