    Alternatives to ipod

    I have not been too happy with my zen micro. I got it because it can play subscription music and has a user replaceable battery, but, battery life does suck. I don't have numbers for it but definitely less than 3 hours of play. Even with car charger it needs recharging overnight periodically...

    HD600 clearly better than HD650? What?!

    With no offense intended to anyone: I think Covenant is talking about himself rather than the headphones, i.e., he preferred one over the other. It would be hasty for anyone to conclude that makes one better than the other. Nobody can deduce much about headphones from listening to another...

    better sound @ late night?

    I think it's the mental state. At night if you are less worried about other things you can pay more attention to what you are listening. What ever it is; it is very real. edit: confirmed. After a glass and half of wine, it's as if from heaven

    I tried er6i for an hour. They hurt so much to my ears that I returned them to the next morning. These IEM are not my thing.

    Hey guys. I hope the last meet was fun. I was a little too new at head-fi at that time to know about these meets and such things. Any new meet at pittsburgh in the pipeline? Thanks, Nachi.

    which mp3 player should i buy? (non-ipod)

    The Rio carbon has a very delicate wheel that breaks at the sligthest impact -- according to amazon reviewers. but, it has probably the coolest look. h10 and creative micro look good. h10 has a SNR of 90DB vs micro has a SNR of upto 98DB. That would be a plus I think. In addition to that micro...

    Which Headphone stand do YOU prefer?

    I like C too. But, personally, I would not have table space for these. I'll just stick a nail in the office wall and use it

    Noise when moving mouse (HDSP 9632)

    Breez has to be right. It IS related to graphics card and possibly the 2d acceleration thing. When I move my mouse around: nothing. When I roll the scroll wheel, it's there. But, it's there even after the scroll wheel has stopped, till the window has stopped scrolling. I use the smooth...

    Sennheiser HD600 has arrived!

    I am new to this forum, but, incidentally, I received my factory-reconditioned HD600 from Amazon yesterday at noon. These are my first impressions: Sure it sounds better than my previous aiwa hp x-223 (I am getting serious about headphones only recently), but, I was not thoroughly impressed...

    Suggestions for first headphones

    Amazon sells HD600 (factory reconditioned) for $189. You might wanna look at it. I got mine few days back. Looks new to me.
