    Is the Amazon listing for the Echobox Finder X1 legit?

    How? Just how? How did they get so cheap? I already ordered a pair (because I have no self control at that price point), but that doesn’t make sense to me.

    Is the Amazon listing for the Echobox Finder X1 legit?

    Boy has it been a long time... So a friend asked me to recommend a pair of IEMs for under $30 that he could use with his switch. Every once in a while the audiophile bug bites me again, but lack of free flowing cash (and the fact that I don’t use my Campfire Audio Vega as much as I should) keeps...

    Campfire Audio Vega (and Dorado and Lyra II) - Head-Fi TV

    So you like the RHA dual density silicone tips as well? They are the best I've found so far actually.I'll have to try that little trick with the yarn to vent it as the only problem I have is getting a good seal without creating a vacuum.

    Campfire Audio Vega (and Dorado and Lyra II) - Head-Fi TV

    Not sure if this is the thread I need as I'm really lost on this new (well... new to me) format. I just got the Vega and I've had it for a few weeks now. I really love it, but I ran into a problem. One of the medium foamies pretty much disintegrated in my ear, and those were the tips I found...

    Wow, I've been off for too long. So the school year is starting and my schedule is finally getting back to some sense of normalcy. I've had a lot of stuff happen, but I'm feeling much more settled now. The one thing pertaining to this Forum is that I ended up getting a pair of Campfire Audio...

    I've actually been trying to find that. I can't seem to find it anywhere. It's poured from a tap right? I saw it a long time ago back when it came out, not long before I became interested in coffee. I'll have to keep looking for it. Maybe I'll be able to finally try it as it looks amazing.

    I know! I know! I haven't been able to keep up with any social media. (My twitter is a mess) I'm trying to get better, but that is unlikely to happen until I get home. Sorry.

    One of the things that I am learning to appreciate more is tea. Finding a local shop that has lots of exotic teas has helped with that for sure. When I get home I'll have to get some of the more exotic ones to try. I see we have some cat lovers here. I too have a particular love for cats, but...

    Thanks! I'm feeling much better, close to normal I think (it's been months). Looking forward to morning coffee again, especially now that I found a local roaster!

    Well, the job is a physical labor job pretty much. Lots of walking up and down hills, but it pays well. Usually it's 10 hour days 6 days a week, but this week we had a few days we missed so I'm working today as well. Definitely recommend large amounts of caffeine for this one, I have to wake up...

    Seems my problem was purely stress. I went to the doctors office twice and they couldn't find a single thing wrong with me, even when I felt so sick I couldn't eat. Fortunately I have summer break now, and I'm trying to just decompress over it. I'm also working over the break, so not much time...

    Actually I look forward to it in the morning. At least, I used to. I've been having trouble with my stomach for a while, and it has made me stop craving coffee. But, it's getting better, and I fully plan to start drinking coffee again once it's all the way gone. I actually would drink coffee at...

    I don't know, by that description I would be worried it would hurt the drain.

    Looking for a TOTL UIEM

    I'll definitely take that into consideration. I'm leaning towards the Vega now though. I can understand that for sure. That is what really has me worried, as I would be extremely depressed if I were to damage $1300 IEMs. Nevertheless, I am fairly certain that I will just skip to TOTL...

    One thing that I've noticed is that the subscribed threads threads you to unread threads rather than all the threads you are subscribed to. That makes it pretty hard to keep up with all of your subscribed threads.

    Closed-back Headphones ~$300 Budget

    Other than the velour pads the Meze 99 Classics should fit the bill here. Sound wise they are a nice step up, comfort wise as well. They have never been hot on me either, but YMMV.

    I think I'll do that with what's left of the coffee I got when it is out of storage finally. Hopefully that will be soon. This lull in activity is really hurting my search for my first TOTL. Hopefully it ends soon.

    Looking for a TOTL UIEM

    Oh, my bad. I thought that you owned the AK Jr. The bass adjustment knob seems pretty neat, not sure how much I would use it though. The part that worries me the most is that in a review I read it had BA bass. I haven't heard a BA driver IEM, but I see that often associated with a lack of...

    Looking for a TOTL UIEM

    Well my elephantine ears should make fit less of an issue. I wasn't looking at the JH Rosie, but I am now. How fitting they would be made by A&K too. They don't look as sturdy as the CA though. How do they compare? Also, you have the AK Jr right? How do all of them work with it?

    Will we see the subscriptions button on mobile again? Most of my usage is on mobile, so that is sorely missed. Also, some of the drop down menus don't work on mobile. They don't display everything, the menu doesn't seem to be optimized for the size of the text. I'll try to get a screenshot of...

    Looking for a TOTL UIEM

    I realized the velvet was a bit behind after looking into it a bit more than I had. I'm looking for something kind of like my 99 Classics I guess, but with a bit more clarity. Very slightly V-shaped maybe, not sure about that though. My main concern is that is I go too neutral it will be...

    New Head-Fi Update

    This isn't exactly a new thing but someone just spammed the hell out of the help and reccomendations subforum. Has the method for verifying new accounts changed? I always thought that new accounts had their first post reviewed by a moderator before it was put up.

    Looking for a TOTL UIEM

    Bump to move my post above the spam. Also I've started seriously considering the Campfire Audio Andromeda. It seems like an excellent IEM for where it sits in the price range. But I am worried about how sensitive it is, especially since the AK Jr has a higher output impedance.

    Will the subscriptions button be coming back to mobile? It's the biggest thing that is missing for me.

    Looking for a TOTL UIEM

    They definitely look outstanding, but that price is a bit of a deterrent. I'd like to spend closer to $1000, but I'm leaning very slightly towards the $700 earsonics. Mostly because of the look and price. Are there any others that I may have missed for the price?
