    Vision M: Bass Question.

    i listened to my friends shuffle with my E4's...and frankly, thats the worst sounding player i've ever heard in my life. The bass is a faint pop, its loaded with hiss, and it sounds horrible. I don't know if the EQ was on or not...but their was heavy hiss. The only apple product that sounds...

    After Market Headphone Cables...what do they do?

    Sorry, i know this is probably a noob question to all of you head-fi experts but what does recabling do? Does it change the sound? Eliminate static.... also, i have E4's. Would recabling them make them better in some way???

    Which ipod rumor are you buying into?

    the iPods battery isn't powerhungry. In fact, nothing about the iPod is power hungry, except H.264, apples most wonderful power hog codec. Thats why the battery life sucks for movies...

    DAP with bigest bass?

    Why do you like bass ( deepness , impact , blablabla ) ??

    it gets me pumped up when i work out...probably adds +5% to whatever i can do...It gives the music the BANG it needs...however mids are very important too!

    Zen Vision (NOT M) audio questions

    Hey i have a couple questions to ask about the normal zen vision (not M). 1) How is the audio quality? I've heard it's pretty good. I currently have an iAudio X5, how do these compare (if anyone has ever tried both). Hows the EQ? Is the bass response good? (i don't want the pop pop sound, i...

    What MP3 Player for my spec?

    you should check overstock or ebay for a Rio MP3 player. they went out of business (Sigmatel bought them) and they were the best sounding MP3 players ever. They had GAPLESS playback and crossfaiding, and where hailed by everyone as the best sounding mp3 player ever. In fact, the RIO karma is...

    H320, iA X5 or Zen Vision M?

    i say the ZVM. If it sounds as good as my ancient Nomad Xtra, its worth it. That thing sounded pretty good. On the other hand, the X5's BBE is tantalizing. I love it. I'm hooked on it. It sounds great. It improves the clarity ten fold. But then you lose the mids somewhat (and i have shures)...

    I am looking for a full size headphone (like Senn, AKG, Grado size) for home use. I like dark sounding (bass-head) but i don't want it to degrade quality. about 150 bucks tops (but it is adjustable, i'd be willing to go a LITTLE* over) (source iaudio X5) *10 bucks or so.

    E4s or 5 pros?

    money and this website don't go to well..normally the latter wins... anyway, I love my E4s. I have them unamped (source: iaudio X5) and they sound great. Lots of bass (i'm a bass head. I actually turned the bass down) lots of clarity, treble, shure mids. Love them. Wouldn't trade them at all.

    Ipod Sound Quality vs IAudio X5

    the X5 is better. and yes i have heard both of them (5G, Nano, Shufle, 4G, Mini, Mini 2G). The X5 is better then them all. Much better.

    i love the E4's

    Well. I bought them. Yes. from me to me type of thing. Well. I must say. I have to stop using periods. Really bad. The clarity is awesome! on my x5, they sound great, bass is accurate and powerful. As a basshead, i am impressed. THREE THUMBS UP!

    E3's or E4's

    Hmmm ok. I guess i should start saving up money. I wish i had a good customer review on eBay (no one's ever bought anything so its zero).

    E3's or E4's

    Well, its finally come down to this. I am leaning towards the E4's, but i can get them at the following prices: E4's: 170 Shipped E3's: 110 Shipped from what i've heard, the E4 has better everything, but the treble is somewhat dull. I am going to run it unamped through an Iaudio X5...
