    Monitors and connectivity questions

    thanks for the input! However, the fostex only has RCA out, which would require a conversion to get to the speakers listed.   Currently, the most tempting option is to skip a DI box entirely, since it seems that the two most valuable parts of it are A) Balance the signal so it can transmit...

    Monitors and connectivity questions

    I'm looking to buy some speakers that will be used for Music/Movies/Gaming at about 80/15/5. I've done a lot of looking and so far I think my top two options are JBL LSR305 and Behringer B3030a, with the latter representing the upper end of my price range. My first question is simply...

    Review: Hifiman RE-400 "Waterline" – The Next Step!

    thanks for the tip! I ended up just inserting the headphones sideways, if that makes sense. In any case, I think I'll stick to the mid-size ones. With these in, I can easily imagine myself forgetting that I'm wearing these.

    Review: Hifiman RE-400 "Waterline" – The Next Step!

    hey, great review! I just received my pair today, and so far, things are going well, though I'm having some fit issues (though I always do, maybe my ears are just abnormal). Also, under "design and build quality" you say the shirtclip is "noy included" when it should be "now included". Also, you...

    Comply Foam Tips for RE-400 Waterline

    I know what the website says, but a company's opinion of its own products just might be a bit biased :P

    Comply Foam Tips for RE-400 Waterline

    Does anyone have any experience with different versions of Comply tips? Is there any real difference between "Isolation" and "Isolation Plus"?

    Comply Foam Tips for RE-400 Waterline

    From my googling, I found this: http://www.complyfoam.com/re-400-waterline/ I was wondering if there are real differences between these tips? Do these offer a large improvement over the given tips for the RE-400s?

    Westone comparisons: 3 vs um3x vs 4

    I've looked at that in depth, but however insightful it may be, it's still just one impression. I was hoping others could share their experiences.

    Westone comparisons: 3 vs um3x vs 4

    I've been looking at these three headphones in particular and I have a few questions about how they compare.   For starters, I currently do not own any portable headphones. Also, the cans I do own (AKG K240s) do not isolate at all. Where I am now, I would much rather listen to music than my...

    How to add a subwoofer to a 2.0 system

    Ah, I was just thinking about a speaker only system, hence confusion. Anyway, thanks for your help.

    How to add a subwoofer to a 2.0 system

    I still don't fully understand where the amp fits in. It looks like Modi -> A5+ -> Sub. Also, Modi -> Amp, but it doesn't make sense that an amp would be an end point?   Also, if I just...

    How to add a subwoofer to a 2.0 system

    @Shaffer So, if the modi goes into the AEs, and the AEs have a line out going to the sub, where does your amp fit in?   @GaryWA Thanks for your input, but the purpose of this thread was more to understand how a hypothetical system would work. I just gave those speakers as examples. I think I'd...

    I just want the best IEM!

    Are customs on the table? If so, +1 to the 1964 V3s. They sound like what you want: mildly forward mids with good but not overpowering bass. Otherwise the most common universal choices in the range are TF10s, IE8s, and the (now discounted) Westone 3s.

    How to add a subwoofer to a 2.0 system

    In that case, what type of sub could be possibly added to the Emotivas? Or alternatively, what are some good passive speakers to match with the sub? Would I need to look for anything specific about those speakers? (like matching impedence to output power with headphones?)

    How to add a subwoofer to a 2.0 system

    My hope is that someone else will post a guide here because my research has left me with too many questions. (sorry to those of you who are disappointed to not find a guide)   Information: Speakers: I hope to acquire a set of Emotiva Airmotiv 4s, as well as a BIC F12. I don't own any...

    1964 Ears

    Has anybody heard anything recently about a replacement for the Quads? A V4, perhaps? Also, how durable are 1964s in general? could I work out with them in?

    non-TOTL CIEM recommendation

    Recently, I started a thread about sub-$400 closed back headphones. I purchased the PSB M4U1s, but noticed that they weren't quite right. First, the earcup was too small. I'm talking millimeters here. My hope is that customs will be able to fit my larger ears. Though the PSBs overall provided...

    Noise cancelling celebrity deathmatch - PSB M4U2 vs QC15 (and Sennheiser Amperior, but we'll get to that)

    I was wondering about the size and comfort of these cans. Are the PSBs' earcups smaller, the same size, or larger than the Bose? Is one more comfortable? I have larger than average ears. I have access to QC15s for trial but haven't found a pair of PSBs I could try yet.

    PSB M4U 1 quick questions

    1) How large are the earcups? My AKG K240s are large enough, but the Sennheiser Momentums are too small for me.   2) Do they benefit from an amp? They're 32 ohms, and I've heard that they don't require one, but would a fiio e17 be a significant improvement? (for the amp or DAC) I'm currently...

    Upgrading closes cans, help?

    I'm looking at getting the PSB M4U 1s, but as I have not yet heard them myself, I can't give a strong recommendation. I can, however, help you get better answers. (However, I will say I recently auditioned (for about 6 minutes) the AH-D600s. I was not a fan.)   Anyone looking to give you the...
