    Returning my Grado PS500...Not sure what to get now

    I absolutely loved the sound of the PS500's.  They were probably the most detailed cans I have ever heard with an amazing bass response.  The sound signature was slightly different then other Grado's I have owned or heard.  The PS500's were neutral and not really fatiguing.   My main issues...

    RSA Hornet: Is it a Line Out?

    I was curious to know two things: 1. Is it safe (for both the Hornet and stereo) to use the Hornet as a line out? So the way I have it setup is Ipod --> Cry dock --> Hornet (med Gain) --> AUX/MD in on my stereo. 2. Assuming that the above is safe for the equipment, would using an Ipod dock...

    Ultimate Ears Customer Service is 5 Star

    I know, I know it's been said a thousand times before but I have to say it again. UE's CUSTOMER SERVICE IS AMAZING. I called them to order a replacement cable for my UE5c's after the cable had tinted green (which started to happen about a year or so after I received them). I have had my UE's for...

    Hornet Volume Knob Gold or Silver?

    I just ordered a black Hornet. In some of the pics I have seen a silver volume knob and some I have seen a gold colored knob (I think both colors look pretty good). I am just wondering which one of the colors comes standerd, because I didn't specify a color preference. Thanks

    Dr. Pepper

    Dr. Pepper was a delight to deal with. I received the product (Senn 650’s) as described in his PM as well as the photos. When I asked for additional feedback and opinion on intended setup with the 650’s he was very forthcoming in talking about what he like and disliked about the cans...

    Got to hear the SHURE E500 today...

    I went to the Montreal HiFi show today and Shure had a booth setup. I listend to the E500 directly out of my ipod using lossless files. Compared to my UE5c the SHURE E500 were far more detailed, accross the board. They sounde more balanced then my UE5c's as well (there wasn't the bass hump like...

    $6.00 at Rat Shack = Problem Solved

    I wasn't sure where to post this but, this seemed as good a place as any. I recently bought a 6 dollar volume control from rat shack because I was experiencing some white noise with my 5G ipod and UE 5c's. I didn't have the problem with any of my other cans (grado sr80 or ety er6i) so I...

    5G IPOD VIDEO is HISSING

    I just got a new Ipod Video 60 gb. There is a distinctive hiss in the background when I use it with my UE 5c. The background noise doesn’t really seem to increase as I turn up the volume, only at the very to of the volume meter the background noise gets a bit lounder. I will have to do more...

    Am I CRAZY for not liking the Senn 650's

    I just recently got the HD 650’s with the HeadRoom Micro (Desktop Module) The ting is I am not that impressed. There is a clear improvement in sound over my UE 5c’s, but the thing is thee Ultimate Ears almost sound more “fun” to listen to. I just thought there would be more of a wow factor...

    Ipod Shuffle Auto Format Conversion (LossLess to 120 AAC)

    Hi, I am looking to buy an Ipod Shuffle, maily for use at the gym. My regular Ipod has become to combersom (maily because I am over protective, keeping it in an Iskin and a neoprean case ) to take to the gym everyday and tends to skip when running outside. My entire ITunes Library is in...

    Mac G4 headphone output versus Ipod

    This may sound weird but i plugged my UE5c's in the headphone jack of my Mac G4 (about three years old) thinking the sound quality should be on par with the output of the ipod (3 gen). Man was i wrong. My computer headphone output sounds a lot better. There were more highs, the bass was cleaned...

    My Ultimate Ears still don't fit...

    I am really at my wits end with my UE 5c's. I just received them back from their second refit. They are still not comfortable. The original problem seemed to be that the stems were to long, a common fit problem according to UE. After shortening the stems twice the comfort problem is still there...

    I just got my UE5c's 4 days ago. At first i was having a lot of problems inserting them, but there going in a lot quicker now. I absolutely love the sound of them. My questions are who has had a refit, what exactly was your fit problem, and how did it turn out? Also does the 30 day “poor fit...

    Your Opinion is Needed

    Your expert opinion is needed. I would like to know what benefits (as well as you can describe them) could I expect if I use a portable headphone amp in the class of a Total Airhead (the sr-71 is far to expensive for me) using a line out via pocket dock with an ipod. I am currently using ety 6i...
