    New firmware 1.10 for X1050/60 (better browser)

    Hi all Just noticed in the other huge "got my X1060" thread that there's a new firmware for the X series just out ( thanks to Ilney post 2672!) WOW! SHOCK! HORROR! Sony comes up with a firmware update is a shock in itself - but one which is more than a quick bugfix too apparently. The release...

    Noise cancelling and Sony X1060

    Hi all. Am considering the new Sony X1060 player which has noise cancelling function. It comes with EX phones (are they similar to EX90's which I have?) - but my favourites are Ety6i's and Superfi 5's. The player isnt quite out yet (any day though) but various reviews/specs etc say...

    Fiio E5 - a screw loose?!

    Hi all Just thought I'd share this. Had my E5 about 2 weeks. Was out and about today with it. Was clipping/unclipping it from my lapel and noticed the clip was loose. The tiny screw was hanging out/ still attached but attached by only the last thread turn ( if you see what I mean) When...

    Upgrade ety 6i's to er4's?

    Hi friends! Would appreciate any advice/comments on a possible upgrade from 6is to er4s - main differences? is it really worth it?etc. Brief background - my sources are Sony hd5,Nano (and some old minidiscs) - but all line out into amps (Headsix or GoVibe V7). The amps mean that the 6is have...

    Superfi5pros-hiss with Sony sources?

    Can I just start by thanking this forums members (and amps too) for leading me down the path of better listening (and lighter wallet LOL) Cutting a long story short - I get quite noticeable hiss when my Superfi5pros are plugged into Sony 808, Sony HD5, Sony HD1 and Archos 604. ( That's with...

    sony ex90 odd design and sound leakage

    Had ex90's for about a week. Just beginning to realise quite an odd design(IMHO). I'd seen reviews saying hybrid of IEM and earbud - but hadnt realised that was literally true. There's a 45 degree angled tube with silicone tip coming out of a flat/normal bud. The silicone tip seals in the inner...

    ER6i's and cable break/fault

    Hi all. Had 6i's about a year - very happy with them ( using mid sized duo flanges!) BUT..... this morning had right channel cutting out. Seems to be a break/near break where cable goes into plug. If I pull cable to one side both channels play - gently pull other way and right channel cuts out...

    jvc hp-fx55

    For times when good isolation and a longish listen is needed I reach for my E3cs or Ety 6is. But sometimes I just want/need a "quick" listen ( maybe even portable dab radio rather than MD/HD/flash players) in noisy/busy/ less "serious" listening situations. I'm a fan of canalphones. Have used...

    cutting wires -Ety 6i's

    Had 6i's for approx 3 weeks. Excellent sound etc ( now that i'm used to putting in correctly). I'm using with a SonyHD1, a Panasonic SD85 and the NH1 minidisc. All are on short neck lanyards and in top shirt pocket. So only need a short headphone lead. (Like my previous EX71 had) The 6i's have...

    Sony HD1 upgrade

    Has anyone had this upgrade done yet? I've just sent mine off to Sony (UK). Not really for the MP3 facility cos I just rip my own cds to Atrac. But I noticed in the small print for the upgrade 2 other improvements - faster transfers, and also some sort of " digital bass and treble " settings...

    sony ex71 half dead

    My first post as a newbie. Firstly thanks to all for good posts/advice/comments etc. Been using ex71s for about a year. ( with N1/NH1 minidiscs and HD1 players) A couple of days ago the left side/speaker stopped dead ( though right side still fine) - my first thought was break in the lead...
