    WMP... it doesn't allow to retag songs ON the device?!

    Hi guys, it's been over a year since I last posted here but I have recently got the bug again. Anyhow, my 5G iPod crapped out so I went out and bought the NWZ-829 from Sony and I have so say the SQ is absolutely stunning paired with some E500s. Now, to my issue... What I would do on the...

    Is this E500 price a joke?

    http://www.tomleemusic.ca/main/lives...191&inv=119133 (This is in Canadian dollars and it includes free shipping.) Yet somehow, the E5C price is higher. http://www.tomleemusic.ca/main/lives...=191&inv=67022 I'm actually thinking about getting the E500s now over the Triple.Fi's if these...

    Reasons why I'm considering the E500 over the TFP10... am I correct?

    I am on the preorder list for the TFP10 Pro. Right now I'm being quoted a price of $420 which includes the international shipping. With the exchange rate as it is right now it will be about $475 shipped. On top of that there will probably be like $50 or more of brokerage. I can get the Shure...

    How many TripleFi.10 early adopters do we have?

    I just put my order in yesterday for the blue ones. Hopefully it's a blue metal and not just blue metallic plating.

    USB DACs in Canada... where to buy?

    I would like to buy a beginner DAC but I don't know of any places in Canada where I can take a look at some USB DACs. Currently, I'm looking at the Silverstone EB01 USB DAC and most of the online places in Canada that sell computers don't seem to stock this product. Any ideas?

    How many headphones do you take with you when you travel?

    I am in Milan right now for a week and a half and I couldn't resist bringing less than 4 headphones (just in case some break... which is a low probability anyway). -Senn CX300 -UE SuperFi.5 Pro -AKG K81DJ -Beyerdynamic DT700Pro/80 To be honest I've only really used the SuperFi.5 Pro and...

    Hey guys is this a decent deal on ER-4P's?

    2 things: -price (they will be $180 + the $45 shipping to Canada). If this is not a good price is there somewhere in Canada where Etymotics can be bought? -WARRANTY! Big issue since I'm buying from eBay and I'm from Canada will this void the warranty...

    Dare I say that these $13.99 headphones sound more open than SR-60s?

    Here is the story... I normally don't buy cheap cheap headphones but I was going to the gym one day and I forgot my headphones (SuperFi.5Pro) so I stopped by Walmart instead of going to home to get them. I picked up these Philips HS820 on impulse... $25CAD @ Walmart. I asked the guy what...

    WTB: Koss KSC-75 (in Canada, or somebody in the states that will ship as a gift)

    I've looked around and all the prices I've seen are ridiculous when you factor in shipping and customs (over $50-60US). Can anybody help me out?

    Black foamies got discolored yellow...

    When I used my Sennheiser PX-100s in the gym I ran for about 40 minutes or so. The headphone foamies were pretty sweaty after. After they dried, they were a yellow like color? Do you think this is earwax from the outer lobe of the ear or was the dye just coming off? Also, on my Grado SR60s I...

    Where are the sweet spots in the Sennheiser lineup?

    I own the PX-100 so that's gotta be one at least. Most specifically, which models in their circumaural and supraaural lineups are worth looking into? The PX-100 sound is good but I think it would be a little nicer if the highs were a tad brighter and the whole the bass would keep up with...

    Headphone cost breakdown? Markup? Materials? Assembly? R&D?

    Does anybody know how the pie splits according to these categories? I've always just been curious for example how costs split up...for instance a $1000 headphone vs. a $100 headphone. I can't really fathom a $1000 headphone costing a ridiculous amount to build. I'd guess more of the money...

    I bought the RS-60s on impulse today...

    I wanted to see what the fuss was all about... what can I say? Haha... I was in the store for like 40 minutes swapping between the SR-80 and the SR-60. For some reason, to me, the SR-60 had more bass and resolved the high end in a more natural manner. The high end of the SR-80 sounded a...

    Which Grado is the best for electronic/hip-hop/jazz? First Grado purchase btw...

    First and foremost, the budget probably should be around $200-250US. For current listening I have a DT-770/80. I am looking for a sound that has prominent bass like the DT-770, but with a more refined midrange and high end. I have searched around on here and it seems that maybe the...

    Need Fun Sounding Headphone

    I feel like buying some new ones to build up my circumaural collection. I already have all the IEMs I need (UE SF5P, Senn CX 300, Sony MDR-EX51LP, Pana HJE-50S). I'd describe all of these as fun sounding except the Pana. Currently for non-IEMs for reference I have the DT-770Pro-80 and the...

    So Ultimate Ears has snuffed me 3 times now...

    First, the two issues that I have with my SuperFi.5 Pros. I have had them for 4 months and I have not abused them in any way. #1) The left SuperFi has started to split in half. The seam at the rear half of the headphone has started to undo itself. To remedy the problem I just exacto...

    Canalphone equivalent to the DT-770?

    For canalphones right now I've been using some EX51s... sound is very sibilant and bass is kind of bloated. I LOVE my DT-770s. I love the neutral middle end, slightly sibilant highs and the amazing accurate bass. I was wondering which phone would be the "DT-770" of the canalphone world...
