    Are Koss KSC-75 still the best cheap running headphones?

    I had a pair of Koss KSC-75 but I lost them somehow. They were great for running and pretty fun to listen to otherwise. I think I might buy another pair but... Does anyone think there are better choices? Low cost is more important than sound quality and they should be durable.

    I need CHEAP IEM's with a remote in the cord and great fit/build quality. Are skullcandy the best choice? I don't care about sound

    I've had a few pairs of Meelectronics and I don't like them. They might sound better than skullcandy, but the fit is worse, and the button on the remote is worse. Are there any others I should consider? I want something cheap that I don't need to worry about.

    Recommendation for working out IEM

    I'm in the same boat as you. I've been a fan of the Klipsch Promedia (often on sale for cheap, and same sound as the S4) but I keep losing/breaking them. Haven't seen them on sale lately, though. Just ordered these, which are supposedly on par with them...

    Best fitting IEM under $30?

    I've had some high end and great sounding buds, but I've decided that I just don't want to spend a lot of money because I keep damaging/losing them. I still have a pair of nice-ish over ear phones, so for these I really don't care much about the sound. With that in mind, which buds fit the...

    Klipsch ProMedia IEM = S4/S4i for half the price. Initial impressions inside.

    I've had three pairs now... hahah so bad. But they've all been good! First one was stolen, and I snapped the cord on the second one. But the third pair is going strong! I still think they're the best for the money, since for me an inline remote is essential. Also the fit is among the best.

    Are these Monster Turbines real?

    Looks the same as the pair I got from the Amazon deal back in November.

    Fire Fox 4.0 hates Head-fi.

    How do I do this? I've also been having major issues, to the point where I've been typing posts then copying and pasting. EDIT: Figured it out. For anyone wondering, click on your username (when logged in), go to "Account Details", then scroll to the bottom where there's a dropbar that lets...

    Sent in my TripleFi 10 for replacement. Logitech/UE support botched the return mailing label three times and now UPS lost them... what to do?

    Quote:   Yeah, I really hate it, but I do realize it's my word against theirs, and the record speaks for them. Still, I was not given the option of "signature required", which I would probably have taken for an item this valuable. I guess now I just have to hope the investigation works...

    Sent in my TripleFi 10 for replacement. Logitech/UE support botched the return mailing label three times and now UPS lost them... what to do?

    Quote: That's exactly how I feel. Not sure what to do though. They ask that the sender does the investigation because they have more info. Logitech started an investigation ~ a week ago, so not sure if I should wait or start barking at UPS.

    IEM's with "Grado" sound? RE0? Looking for detail, and soundstage

    Bumping this thread because I'm curious which IEM's have "Grado" like sound.   I now have TripleFi 10 and Klipsch Promedia but am planning on selling the TripleFi for something that is more comfortable.

    Klipsch ProMedia IEM = S4/S4i for half the price. Initial impressions inside.

      Quote: Yes, the cord is longer, which can be annoying, but is supposedly thicker/stronger. I do wish the Promedia cord were a bit shorter but it's not a problem if I keep it inside my jacket so that it doesn't catch on things. I don't mind the connector as is because I use it with the...

    Monster Turbine- crackly noise in right driver. Cable issue?

    Just now I was listening to Know Your Enemy on my Monster Turbines, paused, started listening again, and I hear crackling coming from the right earpiece accompanying what I'm guessing is a certain frequency in the mids or midbass. This has never happened before so I tried listening through my...

    WTT: TripleFi 10 for great sounding on ear/full size cans, or IEMs with remote in cord

    I have a less than one month old set of TripleFi 10. While I love the sound, the whole up and around the ear thing gets pretty annoying and I find myself grabbing my Turbines instead. So I want to trade for something that I simply open up and place on my ears.   Phones I'm interested in...

    WTT: Monster Turbine for S4i or other mid-level IEM that has a cord w/remote

    I have a two month old set of Monster Turbines, in perfect condition, with all original accessories and packaging. I will include an Amazon receipt.   Looking for a set of IEMs that has a remote built in. I love the sound, fit, look, even build quality, of the Turbines but I've decided a...

    TripleFi 10: Tinny buzzing at certain frequencies?

    Quote: I did have that issue with my Grado SR-225i but that was easily fixed by blowing on it. I've tried blowing, tapping, and gentle shaking with my TripleFi 10 but the buzz is still there.   Regarding sources, I've noticed it on my iPod and two computers, and on multiple songs, but...

    TripleFi 10: Tinny buzzing at certain frequencies?

    I got TripleFi 10 a few weeks ago with the Amazon deal but have recently noticed tinny buzzing the right earpiece. I'm guessing this is a defect of some sort and am wondering: have others have experienced it?   It usually happens on songs with deep bass. For example, "A Dark Knight" on the...

    Klipsch S4i, does mic work on computer?

    You can listen, yes, but the mic/remote in the cord will not work with most programs.   Unless you have a Mac then you can use the remote with iTunes.

    Reccomend me a 32gb mp3 player for $300 or less

    If you all you care about is audio, I would recommend spending much less.   But if you care about features other than audio, I think the iPod Touch is head and shoulders above everything else. The new hardware is very good and the app store gives it so much capability that other devices...

    Monster Turbine lacking bass....defect??

    I agree that something is wrong. Mine have very strong bass, probably about equal to that of my Grado 225i in terms of impact. I have noticed that with the flange tips the seal is very finicky but it sounds like this isn't the issue for you.

    IEM's with "Grado" sound? RE0? Looking for detail, and soundstage

    I just sold my Grado because I want something I can listen to anywhere without hassle. Do RE0 compare to the Grado SR225? I'm expecting the answer will be "no" but just thought I'd ask.    I don't want to spend too much, like no more than $100. Sound-wise I want detail and soundstage, and...

    SOLD: Mint Grado SR225i w/box

    Asking SOLD shipped CONUS, or additional for shipping overseas (PM me and I will make an estimate).   Got these a few months ago but am selling because I want something more portable. I'm guessing I've listened somewhere between 40 and 80 hours. They are in mint condition, and very clean...
