    UE Superfi 4 or Klipsch S4

    I can only comment on the Superfi 4, and although I like mine, I think I have to recommend against them for your music tastes. They're a little light on the bass, which doesn't bother me because I'm really not a basshead, but I'd imagine that you'd want a more bass-heavy sound for hip-hop...

    Yuin PK series recabling?

    I'm in the same boat as you with my PK2. They haven't quite stopped working yet, but the cable is very stiff and starting to crack, so I've stopped using them. The closest I've managed to come to solving the problem is finding this guide to recabling the PK2. I haven't been brave enough to...

    Dollars Crashing.

    The Canadian dollar has also been rising quite a bit against the USD over the last few days! I'm pleased; I wasn't happy about the decline in my cross-border purchasing power. It's still much lower than it used to be, but it's getting better!

    YOUNG PEOPLE (13>22): how young are you anyway?? (part 1)

    Older than I used to be... and maybe older than I'd like to be, too. But still young enough for this poll! 21.

    My Amp is an explosive..really?

    Whenever I fly with my headphone amp, they invariably check my bag for explosives (which seems like a reasonable precaution to me), but I've never been given any trouble over it. Of course, that's only my experience for security at Canadian airports, and once in Mexico.

    UE Attenuator Impedence?

    Well, for what it's worth, the resistance of the attenuator that came with my 4 is about 115 Ohms, assuming I measured it right.

    30% off coupon at 8g Fuze under $90 shipped, 4g Clip under $60

    Nice tip! I've been after a little clip-on player for a while... it's a shame the USD/CAD exchange rate kind of ruins the deal.

    Worthwhile to go from Shure e2c to 4?

    I actually quite like my e2c! They aren't much for detail, no, but they've got a warm fun sound to them - at least once they've been modded. I had a bit better luck with my research after I posted, and while I'm not sure the SF4 are going to have exactly what I'm looking for, they're cheap...

    Worthwhile to go from Shure e2c to 4?

    Well, I've been away from here for a while, but I'm getting a touch of upgraditis now and Futureshop has a sale on the UE 4 that has me intrigued. They're $72 CAD at the moment, and I happen to have a FS gift card burning a hole in my pocket to boot, so it's a very appealing deal...

    Flash Drive-Fi

    It makes Speedy Gonzalez look like regular Gonzalez! Well, not really, but it is damn fast, if kind of unreliable. The speed is worth having to reformat it from time to time, though.
