    Best portable iPod speaker-dock? Looking for something decent w/ battery

    Thanks for the reply. Bose is over budget, but Logitech seems ok -- it was already in my options -- but I'd like have some impressions here from HF about the sound quality, considering most of the review I find are not from audio enthusiast site.

    Mid-size headphone for outdoor

    Hi, I'm looking for a mid-size headphone for *outdoor* use for my iPod classic or Shuffle. Grados or giant cans are out of question, I'm planning to use them while running.    Any suggestion?

    Grado updates and info

    They are even uglier. Construction and materials are ridiculous for the low-mid line. They are anti-ergonomic, probably overrated and overpriced. And I'm about to buy my third pair.

    Alessandro MS-1, MS-2 Questions on usability

    They totally leak, at the point you should pay attention at the volume in the night if you don't wanna wake up the neighbors (no, this is not a joke). How much of the external world you can hear is probably just related to the volume. Are the two hphones big? It depends, the MS2 has quite a...

    Worth waiting for the SR80i ??

    Consider the fact that the new SR80i comes with the cheapo pads, not the bowls. That's a huge minus, IMO. Oh, and they are uglier. But that's irrilevant.

    Damaged MS2i cable, what can I do

    I just want a new cable on my MS2 without paying absurd moneys on it, cause it's Just a Cable. Anyway, talking of the driver housing: isn't just plastic, like the RS1/2? The alluminium cup chamber shouldn't have any component attached (except the plastic part with the transducer). Or not...

    Damaged MS2i cable, what can I do

    Yep I thought about different options, like a DIY recable starting from scratch, or even buying a Grado cable (got a WTB thread open) and do the soldering myself (much better) but I'm very scared at the idea of heating the cups and ruin the housing. I'm waiting a reply from Grado, let's see...

    DIY headphone recable questions

    Uh.. I don't want to go off topic but is there a place somewhere in the EU to send a pair of MS2 for a recable that will not cost me an arm?

    Requesting advice: selecting good affordable headphones for mainly rock music

    Try the Alessandro MS1 (99$). Absolutely great for rock.

    Grado Identification

    There should be a label on the pizza box. Another indication are pads and the mini jack (I think it's just on the SR60). I think there's no other way to recognize a SR60->SR225 model.

    problem with audiotrak prodigy 7.1

    I never found any serious problem with my Prodigy 7.1 (latest driver here too) except the change in sampling speed sometimes when I have a lot of different sound sources with different sampling (nothing tragic). I don't play games too much, but I can tell you that with Battlefield 2...

    Battles (post-rock, post-everything)

    Yep, I'm a big of Don Caballero (attended a show just a couple of months ago... impressive). Can't say the same for Storm & Stress, too difficult for me. But Battles are incredible. Atlas is even a potential radio hit!

    Battles (post-rock, post-everything)

    If you're open to post-rock, experimental or simply just good music, watch this video. The band is called "battles", the album is "mirrored" and is leaked on the internet (is not probably out yet).

    Sr80, Sr60 and Ms-1, what to do?!

    The SR80 should be slightly better on the bass department AFAIK. Having tried both pads I can tell you that you're doing the right thing picking the "donuts".
