    My thoughts: iPhone 3GS vs VibeZ

    Quote: Originally Posted by shigzeo one of the reason you may find the vibes to be clearer in the bass is that it has quite severe bass roll off with the headphones you listed. thus, it doesn't have much bass to pass around the spectrum. nice player though. I haven't heard the...

    My thoughts: iPhone 3GS vs VibeZ

    Just replaced my old WinMobile 6.1 phone with a new 3GS iPhone. Using it as a DAP was not real high on my priority list when making the purchase but I figured it couldn’t hurt. There have been a few times I’ve been without my DAP and wanted it but I am never without the cell phone. Anyway, after...

    Thanks Klipsch - Great Customer Service

    Just a note to thank Klipsch for top notch customer service . I had a warranty issue with my custom-3's. All email correspondence was answered promptly and professionally. Phone calls were handled in the same manner. After getting an RMA number and returning mine they immediately shipped...

    Best for soundstage?

    Thanks for the informative post. With all due respect for the numbers I am at a loss as to why this does not seem to be the case during my listening tests. I just sat here again this morning listening to a couple tracks from John Scofield UberJam. Player to Custom-3's and Player to HF-1's. I...

    Best for soundstage?

    Of the players I've listened to, iPod 1g Shuffle, Sansa Fuze, new iPod Nano and the VibeZ. The VibeZ easily bests all the others. Not just in a sense of wide but also deep and detailed. Darkness in the seperation between insturments. Also a few months ago I would have agreed with you that...

    Kinda interested in some IEMs (custom-3?)

    Listening to some BucketHead through my Custom-3's right now. They have really become my go to headphone since I got them in December. Pros:Deep Bass Very Nice Soundstage and instrument separation for IEM Great detail for the amount of Bass getting pumped through them. Very Comfortable...

    How Many Are Still Using 1st Gen. Shuffles?

    A great little player. I've got one and it still gets used often. IMO it has a warmer, richer sound than my wifes new Nano. The power output/volume is better and I never have to worry about damage when packing it around in my pocket. It could be the best sounding, out of the box, apple ever...

    Old Fart asks - where's the new King Crimson?

    I'm in my 50's and stuck in the same rut. Cut my teeth on music from New Riders of the Purple Sage, Commander Cody and Asleep at the Wheel, to King Crimson, Zeplin, Pink Floyd, Yes, Emerson Lake and Palmer. It seemed the Talent was endless in all genre's. But here's some that I have found...

    Altec Lansing iM716 initial impressions (pre burn-in, un-modded, with some comparisons with Denon C700 et al)

    Thanks for your thoughts on the IM716's. I agree with the others here that recommend an amp to get the most out of the IM716. My VibeZ will push the volume to very reasonable levels but they really open up and improve when amped so give it a shot. I have to say I've never experienced the...

    Pink Floyd

    I'll be the Odd man out here but I believe The Final Cut is one of Pink Floyds best works only surpassed slightly by DSOTM. Followed by, Wish You Were Here, The Wall. DobsOnly

    Congrats on the purchase. Hold onto your wallet now though It only gets more interesting from here... Next is a good set of IEM's ( or 2) then you will need some HD600's, 650's or some other high end can for home listening. Then you have to have a set for each type of music you listen...

    Help, replacement for KSC35 :-(

    My KSC35's cable was ripped and broke in half this evening. The immediate response was I'll buy you another pair. That would be a good trick since they are very hard to find. I might be able to make a repair by recabling but figured I'd start looking for a replacement. So far the Yuin PK1...
