    How do I live with my first IEMs?

    A few weeks ago I picked up a pair of UE500. The sound is good, but I cannot deal with them. It isn't discomfort, it 's pain. They slide out of my ears if I don't jam them in deep enough for either the vacuum pressure to cause pain or the tips themselves pressing on one point. I think I would...

    Four cans in my cart: DT990, SR225, ESW9, D2000

    Is that through a particular amp/source or across the board?   I need to rename the thread to "Two cans in my cart: 325is & HD600"   Weren't even in the running at the whistle, yet they take the lead.

    Penguin Delux Amp?

    top right, my penguin royal with the same massive 3300µF capacitors. i paid $100 more than you did, gaining only a gain switch, bass boost/cut, and crossfeed. i really don't use any of them. you did very well for your money. yes, yes, much portable junk. i'm workin on it.

    Advice Sought for a Musician Friend

    i'm a recording musician and i've used the sr60 for almost four years. i don't see why they need to be closed since many singers take one phone off so they can hear themselves while they record. my sound guy always recommends the Equation Audio RP-21 to everyone, so i'll throw that one in but i...

    Impressions: a week with the HFI-780

    i think they're plenty comfortable. i was really driven to buy these because the ES-7 sounded good but felt not merely uncomfortable but painful after two hours or so. i listen to a good mix of genres, and they all sound great. metal is my favorite and it seems to be the hardest for a...

    I've had enough low end cans.

    They were just delivered. Can't wait till these are all burned in but for out of the box I'm already quite pleased. I was up until 3am last night recording with the sr60 and today I was mastering with the hd485. Just continuing to work with these and the song sounds better than it did with the...

    I've had enough low end cans.

    RE0 for metal?

    i'm looking at these myself for the same music and i'm more concerned about having enough bass or too much treble. for metal, recessed mids should not be an issue. the "mid scoop" is practically the definition of metal. at low volumes, it's how most guitarists will EQ their amps for that...
