    Alternative to Future Sonics Atrio?

    I emailed Futuresonics customer service a few days ago and told them my right earphone just died for know apparent reason. I also told them that I bought my pair in October so the 1 yr warranty had expired and that I had lost my receipt in any case. I asked them if they could repair them for me...

    Alternative to Future Sonics Atrio?

    Hi Meer, I bought a pair of Atrio v2 s last October and I just discovered that my right earphone has completely died (after relatively light use). I have given up on the warrantee since the period has expired and I lost my receipt in any case. These earphones sounded great especially with my...

    Hi, is anybody into uplifting trance music..??!

    Anyone know what headphones Armin van Buuren is sporting on his website arminvanbuuren.com? Are they AKG K701s? They kind of look like AKGs... I thought these were not bass heavy phones, especially for a trance DJ.

    d2000 sibilance...painful...

    I've used my ipod 5.5 gen and my laptop with/without my headfive and the sibilance is definitely there for me. I don't use bad bitrates- 320 kbps, and I know the Radiohead 'In Rainbows' album has a reputation of being well recorded. The occasional vocal sibilance I can bear, but I listen to a...

    $500-550 trance headphone recommendations

    I have a pair of partial markl modded woodied D2000s (rear dampening mod and tapered stuffed earpad mod). They sound very good with a lot of genres, but are lacking in the genre I mostly listen to- trance. They are sibilant to me on the "s" and "t" and closed high hat sounds with trance. Their...

    Headfive driving ability

    Hi, I just tried using my D2000s with my headfive using a mini-rca caple from my ipod. I find that I have to turn the knob of the headfive to the 2-3 o'clock position, and that is after increasing the ipod volume to about 80-90% to get a good volume on the D2000s. Is this normal?

    Noobie with a questin about iem vs circumaural

    If you want a bigger soundstage, why not go for full sized headphones instead of iems. Sure, some iems have decent soundstage but that's not gonna change the fact that they are lodged up in your ear canal, giving you that "in ear" sound.

    Noobie with a questin about iem vs circumaural

    Do not buy the triports. I did 4 yrs ago and after very little use. the cheap plastic headband broke into 2! And there were additional, developing cracks in it! My friend, who also purchased the triports a little after I did had his headband crack on him too. So do yourself a favor and spend...

    Using ipod lineout to an amp without a DAC.

    So if the ipod's internal amplifier is not bypassed when using the headphone out, how does an external amplifier deal with this already amplified signal. Does it just amplify it further, or does it "clean up" the signal too? For example improving, clarity, instrument separation etc. Why is...
