    ER6i cheap @ Palm

    Not sure if there are many fans of the Ety ER6i but for the price Palm is offering them for, ~ $48, I figured there might be some interest. I still get a lot of use from my trusty ER6's. I might grab a set or 2 for gifts. Here's the link or you can go through the Add on Head-Fi. Palm ER6i

    Ety8 Filters = IM716 Filters ???

    Looking at the Etymotic Website it looks like the Ety8 accessories would be a direct swap for the IM716's. Has anyone compared the filters and tips to see if they are interchangable? Looks like it is getting hard to find replacement filters for the IM716's. Thanks for the info!

    Karma owners: Have we been ruined, spoiled?

    Just curious if your experience has been similar to mine? In a search for a 2nd or replacement DAP for my Rio Karma, nothing satisfies me. While each of the flash type DAPs I've tried are probably OK, at best. The shortcomings in Sound Quality to my ears are huge and very unsatisfying. My...

    iM716 vs Ety ER6

    I originally thought I would wait a week before posting some thoughts on the iM716. After 8 or 10 hours of use over the last few days I think I can make some comments since I doubt things will change very much between now and then. IEM – Altec Lansing iM716 Price paid - $69

    First Beck CD, Guero - What others?

    Broke down and picked up Becks - "Guero" yesterday. What a great creation.. He builds his music around so many different themes.. "Farewell Ride" has that Mississippi Delta Blues Rhythm.
