    Quote: I don't know about the AF56 yet, I haven't listened to them. I won't have a chance to listen to them anytime soon either, as they are going to be a gift for my wife for xmas so that she'll have a pair for running since she broke my MTPGs 2 weeks ago. Yes, they have the warranty, but...

    Best portable headphones which match my requirements? Please help!

    A good place to start would be the portable headphone review thread by joker.   After spending some time with with the Sennheiser HD25-1 II I would recommend giving those a try - it fits all of your requirements fairly well.

    Quote: Well, I just looked through it a little bit. I thought that someone had actually said how they got them apart. I guess that they didn't, unless I missed it in my search.   Anyway, there's a little information in posts 3045 and 3076. You can try sending a PM to leonsphinx or...

    Inexpensive amp for RE262

    Quote:   Quote: If you like it's sound signature then the PA2V2 should be great for them. It will provide all of the power that they need, and shouldn't really change their sound signature much (if at all). From my experience the PA2V2 is a fairly neutral amp.   I haven't heard...

    Are IEMs a faulty concept or am I just unlucky with these brands? CrossRoads and Hippo become QUIET!

    It almost sounds like a driver flex issue. This happens to me once in a while with my MTPG. After using them for a while, if I have to take them out and reinsert them the left driver can sound dull until the pressure in my ear equalizes.   If there's some moisture in your ear from using IEMs...

    Xears Thread (formerly TD III)

    An update from post #19 on April 28th:   I chatted with Thomas on Live Chat on their site a little while ago. He told me to submit a picture with the cable cut off and my address to him and he would send me a new one.   That was great considering that my previous 2 emails to him were...

    IEM with four earbuds???

    Try this (or something like it): http://www.nuforce.com/hp/products/Iconmobile/index.php   It has 2 outputs and, as one of it's features, is designed to handle output to 2 IEMs/headphones.

    Help me understand what I want

    If you want clarity get the DBA-02. It's highs and mids are absolutely sensational. They probably don't have as much bass quantity as you're accustomed to though. You can EQ the lows up a little bit on them, or get an amp that's on the warmer side to accompany it if you need a little more from...

    Double Thread Sorry! I realize now!: Monster Turbine PRO Copper Sale for $225 at Amazon!

    You should use the The IEM/Portable Headphones Deal Alerts Thread instead. If you browser through that thread from the beginning of the month you'd notice that the Coppers went down to $212 for a day or two. After that, they went up to $225 and have stayed there for the past couple/few weeks.The...

    Help a guy out...... Anyone had to glue their IEMs back toghether?

    One of the housings on my Nuforce NE-7Ms had to be glued back together when they were about a year old. I think that oils from my ears/skin caused the glue to loosen up.   To put it back together I just cleaned it up fairly well and applied a light coating of some cheap super glue. I pressed...

    Review: Fischer Audio's DBA-02

      Has anyone else had an issue with their cables on their DBAs hardening up?   Mine are from the July pre-order/September shipment. Only the cable section between the Y split and the driver housings is affected. The other section between the 3.5mm plug and the Y split is still as soft and...

    Review: Fischer Audio's DBA-02

    Quote: The DBA-02 probably wouldn't be good for you. They're a far cry from the DDMs based on the reviews that I've read about the DDMs. The DBAs isolate fairly well and have low microphonics, but you should read back a few pages about peoples' accounts of using them while working out...
