    Down to 2 choice, can't decide !

    The iriver meets all of your requirements...but the one thing it does lack is style, if you can live with that then go for it. Oh, and firmware updates are non existant, but the things you need won't be affected by that. With that said, I like my iriver very much, BUT for the design...IMO...

    Putting in MD33s

    I just put them straight in and give them a slight turn to get the wire into the right position.

    The EX71 thread -- intrigued by Sony EX71s -- what do you know about them?

    What mod did you do digdub? The foam in the canal one? I have the MD33s and I really like them, I think they could use a tiny bit cleaner high end, but they are still really nice. The fit is amazingly comfortable. The only bad things about it are the 4 pole plug requiring the adapter cable...

    FM Radio for IHP players

    It is ok, only the more powerful stations will be picked up. I don't live in a heavy populated area so your results may vary.

    Sharp HP-MD33

    I have no idea about the 4 to 3 pole converter, I would like one myself. Preferably, it would be something like 3 inches. Anyways, I have a Sharp MD unit with 4 pole output, and I don't really notice a difference between 4 and 3 pole use.

    Sharp HP-MD33S - it doesn't get much better

    At first glance, the title made it seem like the phones really sucked, glad that's not the case . Mine should be coming in next week, I'll post my impressions then.

    Looks like iHP-1xx 52 char limit solved

    post about it here: It looks like your id3v2 tags have to be in order though.

    E3c's compare how well to normal headphones?

    ok, thanks ppl. I have decided to go for the MD33's since I probably don't want too much isolation like baies said.

    Best Headphone for around 30 bucks.

    Tha's going to be tough to find without going used...probably the closest things are PX200, and used Senn 280 pros.

    Sony Qualia-017 MD Player $1900 listed!!

    Yeah, like D555 siad, this is for the CEO's and such that want something to brag about and show off. It is more a lifestyle device than an audio device. The design looks very very nice, I'll give it that much.

    Headphones and health

    I don't think they could cause any damage, other than if they were set at too high of a volume. Sure there is some EM field around the driver, but it would be insignificant relative to the stuff you are bombarded with daily.

    Cant decide between iHP-120 and Dell DJ

    Well, I decided on the iriver since I don't really want to tag all the rest of my files. I think most , if not all, of my files are <52 chars as it is now, so that isn't an issue since they are in track ##-title.

    Cant decide between iHP-120 and Dell DJ

    I've done some reading and can't really decide between the two, now that there is essentially no price difference between them (if I get the DJ, I'll get the FM remote with it). I am just wondering what the rest of you think about this. I have 17 gigs of mp3's, wavs, etc., so that is somewhat of...
