    Absolute best budget earbuds?

    Finally got my TY32 from Penon, not the S version. Does anyone have any foam suggestions to tame the high mid end. Vocals are insanely sharp and fatiguing. Worse then a DT990.(Which I own and love by the way.) Bass is great but I can't concentrate on anything but those screaming frequencies...

    Mass Effect Andromeda

    Just finished it last night started just burning through the story when I realized that nothing I did made any impact on future gameplay. Never thought I would miss paragon and renegade as much I do. The difficult "choices" have absolutely no impact on your character relations as far as I can...

    Absolute best budget earbuds?

    Thanks so much Laugh. Ok I am going to give it 1 more week then I will take it up with them. My ty are coming registered mail yet I can't track them at all which sucks. I ordered on the 3rd left on the 11th that is all the info I got.

    Absolute best budget earbuds?

    I am sure you did but could please you drop a link to the Awei Laugh.    Also for you Canadians that have bought from Penon do you happen to remember how long it took for shipping?   Thanks!   I am ready to write a few things. I recently bought the Monk+ and SHE3800. The 3800 still get...

    Sony MDR MA900 Impressions Thread

    I think a lot of people would love an impression. Would be cool if you could add Yosi Horikawa "Bubbles" to your music listening impression. That song has some sort of weird soundstage of imaging voodoo going on. Honestly all his tracks creep me out but have me constantly testing new...

    Earbuds Round-Up

    This times I don't know how many million. The cable and jack they use are complete junk. Keeps the price down though. I was actually thinking of picking up a pencil iron and some cable to learn and play with the 7 or 8 broken pairs I have lying around. I know they have a lifetime warranty but it...

    Sony MDR MA900 Impressions Thread

    For all you MA900 lovers still lurking in this thread, I was wondering what the next step up headphone wise would be? Would like something close to the same sound and do not want to lose the soundstage. Love the out of head feeling I personally get from these headphones. I am not getting rid...

    Absolute best budget earbuds?

    I ordered from the VE website not Aliexpress. Was surprised when they showed up. Also made sure the order was under $20. (big deal in Canada importing.)   Finally found a fit. It was with oddest thing. I tried the foam from my new not even a hour old SHE3800. Don't know why it didn't work with...

    Absolute best budget earbuds?

    Got my Monk+ in. There is definitely something special there but getting a proper fit for me has been a nightmare. Tried so many different foams and stacking and ear hooks but when ever I stop holding them in I lose all the low end. Becomes all shrilly highs and fatiguing lower mids. I am sure I...

    I am going to play devils advocate here. Neither of the Beyers DT990 bother me. I own both the 250 pro and premium and I don't mind the treble on both through my Fiio E09k. The E09K isn't exactly neutral, it is a tad darker so maybe I was getting some treble roll off.   I am playing the other...

    Absolute best budget earbuds?

    Thanks Willber. I am looking at earbuds can't stand iems in my ear. Plus the Godzilla walk, as some people call it, drives me crazy. The iem suggestion was for my partner he loves my ksc75 but would love to have a bit more isolation. He uses and likes the DT990pro and his Bose (don't freak out)...

    Absolute best budget earbuds?

    Tax time and I thought I would take a few bucks and try a few cheaper earbuds ***** and giggles.    So if I was to pick 3-5 cheaper ones to order what would some suggestions be.    I have read through the entire thread over the last couple of days and it has sort of all bled together. I...

    I hated them. Sound hollow and clamp like one of Jigsaw's torture devices. Apparently there is an identical type from another company that fixes the sound issues and clamp issue. Glad I bought them though discovered how amazing their pads are on the CAL! Series. They are also good for mods...

    This is bound to lead to a fight. Though there are way to many AKG users on this post so it would probably sway that way. Though I would personally disagree and say the MA900.    I really have to update my profile.    Hey MLE are you going to grill mod your HE400's? I am also in the same...

    Yup that cord will work. There is a diagram somewhere on this forum on how to hook it up for mic use but i am much to lazy to look for it.

    I am very interested in this since my mixamp just took a dump and astro doesn't want to support mixamp users. Lost a lot of faith in them.    Thanks for posting this Evs.

    Sony MDR MA900 Impressions Thread

    Damn tempting to put up for sale on here and the Canadian site as they must be pretty rare in Canada. I could put the money towards my 400i fund. But I just can't give them up. I would give up my DT990/600 and MadDog before I give up my Sonys.

    I own both and to be honest unless you live in Canada and have access to a replaceable cord and ear pads, just buy the OG CAL.   I think I dislike the CAL2 ear pads even more then I dislike the OG CALs. Luckily I have a pair of HM5 pads around, now I just have to replace the cable. I hate mic...

    I think I will eventually order the momentum cable.  I have to eventually order new HM5 pads that is why I thought about the Fiio cable because it is 35 bucks right now. I wanted the angled NVX100 pads but I am not paying that massive shipping cost. (shipping is almost the same amount as the...

    Has anyone tried the Fiio replacement cable and the ebay cable listed in this thread?

    First off congratulations!!!! Do you live in the US? You could just buy the A50 and Steelseries H (don't believe anyone owns this headset yet.) off of amazon for the free shipping and decide which one you don't like. Just a thought. I personally wouldn't buy the Astro's after my recent visit to...

    Thanks for replying Stillhart. Having heard both I don't agree with that at all. The Q701 has that AKG house sound. The HD668b is a baby DT990pro Beyer with less clarity.   For people starting out that is why I always suggest HD668b. It is cheap, light, with great sound that impresses a lot...

    I would buy the gold and never ever come back here. ;) Before you get caught and hooked and can never leave, until your significant other beats you to death with your credit card bill. So I am not going to give you any advice because I don't want you to get stuck in this amazing vortex of...

    Well I guess that would depend on where you live. In Canada the damn things are only $20 apart so for the better build and pads, plus I already have a CAL1 I figured what the hell.   Yah I can't see you enjoying them if they are even bassier.   I know Tyll has been brought up a lot as not...
