    My iRiver H320 has a bit of a problem: after it has finished charging and I have unpluged it, the screen saying it is fully charged does not dissapear even when i try to turn it off (I use the stock firmware). It will not turn off, and when the battery starts to run down it goes back to thinking...

    Covering for cables?

    thanks for the responces, i think the nylong covering and heatshrink is what im looking for, i have a lot of extra techflex from making interconnects and recabling random things, it looks nice to me but its way too stiff and microphonic

    I'm a little scared...

    all i have to say is the payoff is usualy well worth it. Good quality headphones sound SO much better than normal every day ones you usualy see people walking down the street with, especially when they aspire to one day purchase a set of bose triports because they think thoes are the end all of...

    shortening the wire on grados?

    i got really annoyed having to use the long cable and adapter for my SR225s for my portable rig, so i took some extra canare starquad cable i had, and a switchcraft connector and did a simple rewiring, its not that hard at all... you just need to have the materials handy (and a multimeter helps...

    Rock/Hip hop open (good seal tho) cans

    AKG K1000 oh and on the minding of the relative budget others were citing note... the 485s are good... if you dont mind headphones that just sit in your ears clip on style the KSC-75s are great bang for the buck headphones that handle all music well

    As far as i can tell, the 650 drivers aren't available on the Sennheiser website, but i definatley will post pics if i put the 600 drivers in my 497s (that would be very very very sweet mod in my opinion) EDIT: Oh and the 580 and 600 drivers are listed as the same thing (because they are the...
