    Audio Technica MSR7b or Shure 1540?

    I really like the technicas, just wondering if doubling up in cash would make a big difference? Any thoughts would be appreciated, thanks.

    Looking for a closed back

    Hi all, haven't been on head fi in years, but I need advice from the vast knowledge here. Like the title says, I'm looking for a closed back wired headphone that sounds similar to the sony XBA-A3 iem. I love the sound, but I do get tired of having things in my ear for a prolonged period of...

    Sony XBA-A3 - Impressions Thread

    Thanks for the info guys, think I'm going to give these a shot. Just one more question, are these made of metal or plastic? One thing I really liked about the rha's was build quality, they were like tiny stainless steel tanks.

    Sony XBA-A3 - Impressions Thread

    It's not like I plan to run a marathon with these, but  I do use iem's on bike rides, walking the dogs, shoveling snow, cutting grass and so on. I just wanted to see if these would stay put or constantly become dislodged from ears. I had a set of yamaha eph 100's and I forgot to not wear them in...

    Sony XBA-A3 - Impressions Thread

    So, are you guys stating that you really can't move around at all with these? Is fit really that tedious? Thanks for any replies

    How would these stack up against the rha t20 or dunu 2000j? I had a set of yamaha eph 100's go bust on me and I'm looking for new iem's. I have the m-100's and like them just fine, but I don't know if I want an iem with the same sound. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks

    dunu 2000J vs. rha t20, which to buy?

    Anyone have any feedback on these, I'd be using an ipod classic with a jds labs c5 amp. All input would be helpful. Thanks

      No, I personally think they sound better. Again this is just my opinion , but the soundstage seems a lot wider and I'm hearing more nuances in the background. I couldn't be happier with these. I always thought the sound was great, now the comfort equals the sound.

      Well, I'm only commenting on what I know to be true.

    It was redesign the pads or get a boatload of returns. I would have definitely returned mine if I didn't know the larger pads were coming out. I returned the yamaha pro 500's purely because they were unwearable for more than ten minutes. I still think choosing orders at random is lame whatever...

    guys, check out "girls on the dancefloor" by the far east movement on these. Sounds frickin awesome.

    Extremely excited about the xl pads. All I'm hoping for is about 3mm of extra depth and I'll be able to listen to these for hours.

    Quote: If I were you, I would send v moda an email asking this question. They are pretty good about responding, usually in less than 24 hours.

    So looking forward to the xl pads. Every time I put them on I wish for a couple mm more depth.

    Just got a c5 a couple days ago and I love it. I'm not really into all the tech terms, all I know is it sounds frickin awesome. I do think it brings out the mids, the v moda m100's never sounded better.

    Yamaha PRO Headphones.

    I had to send these back purely based on comfort, they weren't. The one thing I ever returned that I still wish I had. Actually, almost teared up a bit at the ups place. I hope they lose the lawsuit with beats so they have to change the design, this sound in any other design, I would buy them...

    I agree with astonish, the blacks are definitely more comfortable than the off whites. I just hope the xl pads are a tad deeper, get a little pressure off my ear cartilage.

    I heard the c5 is crystal clear with no distortion or hiss. I have a fiio e17 and I'm really considering droppin the buck ninety to get the c5.

    I love these headphones more every day, not often I have zero buyers remorse. This is one of those times.

    Yeah, I'm definitely waiting for the xl pads as well. These are only slightly uncomfortable, but tolerable. V-moda said they will be getting more shield colors by the end of spring. Definitely going with the royal blue and maybe some purples. Wonder why they don't sell the ocean blue by...

    I just wished the whites were white, mine were more of a cream color. The mattes look so much better in person, pictures don't do them justice. Any way you go, they're all top notch.

    Flipped the whites for the matte black, best idea since deciding to buy the 100's.
