    My girlfriend is traveling to Hong Kong for business. She has suggested that I find something for her to buy from there. I have been out of the headphone market for a couple years now, so I have no idea what's good out there.   My current headphones are a UE TF10 (molded into a custom IEM)...

    Help me pick a watch

    I got my Bachelor's degree last week, and my aunt wants to get me a watch as part of a graduation gift. She wants to keep the price to ~$500 (preferably less).

    Help me pick an entry level suspension fork

    Hello Head-Fiers. Please forgive me if I use the wrong terminology, as I am not very knowledgeable about biking. I am looking to upgrade my suspension fork in my bike, as the current one that came stock is pretty terrible and has lost a lot of its "stiffness". I would like to keep it as cheap as...

    What is your favorite sipping tequila?

    As the title asks, what is your favorite sipping tequila? I'm no wine and spirits authority, but I do enjoy a nice smooth tequila. The only tequila I've ever bought for sipping is Patrón Añejo and I like it very much. I know there's got to be better stuff out there that isn't insanely expensive...

    InEarZ (Fisher Hearing) Custom Remold Owner's Thread

    The old thread had 1000+ posts and a large portion was speculation, so I thought I'd start a new thread for owners of IEMs reshelled by InEarZ to post pics and impressions. I hope to get my custom TF10 in next week and I will edit this post when they arrive. So, InEarZ owners: post your pics...

    Anyone know where to start with a CRT TV repair?

    I have a CRT TV that started acting up a few days after a power outage. The audio is basically non-functional (no static, no cracking, no sound at all, although sometimes it cuts in for a few seconds every once in awhile) and the component video input is all scrambled. Also, it only responds to...

    Bicycle lighting

    Back before I got my driver's license I used to ride my bike constantly. I've decided I need more physical activity in my life so I am going to start biking again. This would involve everything from biking the short distance to work to long (in my opinion) rides of ~25-50 miles. For now, I won't...

    Are UE Custom cables directly compatible with UE series?

    Since UE is out of stock on their standard cables (clear) I decided to get the UE custom cables, since I heard they were better quality. They have the same plug and everything, right? I won't have to file/cut anything to make it fit my 5 Pro?

    Replacement cable for SF5 Pro

    After a year and a couple months the cable to my SF5 Pro has started to go out on me. It's shorting out on the left side. I know it's the cable because I switch the drivers and the problem is on the same side of the cable. I know that in the past people have recommended the Westone ES...
