    Skullcandy Titan Review: Head-Fi Sanity Check

    Nice review! Thanks. With an iPod Nano 5g the Titans bass is not so bloated. I have mentioned it before, but the Titan seems to be a good match to the Nano output. With a Clip+, Tosh T400 or Zune 80, I think the Titan's bass is more intrusive & the highs start to get a bit harsh. The 5g Nano is...

    Grado GR8, why 120 ?

    At a sensitivity of 118dB/1mw the GR8s are probably louder than most of the ones I have. I think the most efficient I have is 109dB. Cheers, kev

    Skullcandy Titans

    By the way, if you have trouble seeing the tiny L/R markings on some earphones, do what I did. With IEM's like Titans that have large openings, I used a red sharpie to color the grill inside the earpiece. It is easy to just look into the end & see the shiny red & put it into the right ear. It's...

    Fiio amps?

    Oh they're OK. I was thinking that the amp would make my Alesandra 2 sound more like my Senn P100, but with a little more top end. The combo does sound darker, but most of what I listened to had that annoying (to me) mid-bass hump that reminds me of every cheap piece of audio gear that is trying...

    apod touch or zune 80. please help... im very confused

    One of the major questions that you have to answer, is whether you want touch screen or tactile buttons. That may sound obvious at first, but it is a huge issue. Touch interface will not allow you to use the device (change volume, advance track, pause etc.) without looking at the screen. The...

    Song listing in Artist mode VS Album?

    Hope this question isn't out of bounds for this forum. I have a Toshiba T400 & I synch with WMP 11. If I search by "Album" everything is fine with Album Art & Artist name. Most of my albums are fine if I search by "Artist" too. I select an artist press OK & the next screen shows the album with...

    Life after 80......

    Was just thinking about the possibility of loosing a drive & a collection of music & realized that if I lost a drive & then synced my Zune 80 without knowing that the external drive (Zune collection folder) was toast, would I loose the files on my device? (Double insult) It is currently set to...

    AC Charger for Zune...out of principle

    OK, got it! Looking at the new USB-IF battery charging spec. 1.0 it looks like this. Wall chargers should have the D+ & D- pins shorted together & floating. PCs & some other devices should have the D+ & D- pins connected to gnd. through 15k resistors. Well I tested the musicPower Dual Port...

    Look what showed up today ....

    I love the idea of woodying my MS1s, but I'm a bit concerned about the DIY route. From what I have read somewhere on this forum, some of the newer Grados are using a more aggressive adhesive to join the halves of the cans. That makes it much more difficult to separate the pieces than before. It...
