    Heavy cords are getting annoying...(Meelec A151) Anyone have any ideas?

    So I love the sound of my Meelectronics A151s and the cord is great except for the fact that it's heavy and droops all over the place. It gets annoying as the cord will dangle around, get caught on the buckles of my bag and my clothes, or drag the drivers off my desk due to its weight...

    FutureSonics Atrio X or something from Meelec / Soundmagics

    Okay, so I've used UE Super Fi 3s (too thin and sounding) Meelec M9s (kinda muddy, but I like everything else) Phonak PFEs (no complaints, but they broke) Meelec M6s (pain to fit and if I breathe/tilt my head, they break the seal)   Atrio Xs are in my price range and I like the dark...

    Amp via headphone out- degrade sound?

    Wouldn't adding another amp between the headphone out (NOT line out) and the headphones add distortions/coloration/etc that weren't there w/o it? You are going through two amps

    Replacement for Sennheiser PX100s (do the PX100-IIs sound the same?)

    I have a feeling mine are going to die soon (been using them since 2003-4?) I love the sound signature on these and I heard that the IIs do not sound the same? If not, what else has the dark, slightly warm and colored sound the PX100s ooze?

    What case do you guys use to carry your IEMs and your mp3 player?

    Just curious what you guys use to store your IEMs and source between sessions. The stock tin can that the UE3s come with suck (bends the cord in weird angles to fit)

    Sennheiser PX200 pads on PX100?

    How much does this affect the sound of the PX100? I hate the foam pads on mine and thought the PX200 pads would be a comfort upgrade

    Lifespan of a pair of headphones?

    So with daily use, how long is a pair of headphones destined to last? (not IEMs) My Px100s "leather" and foam head pads are beginning to wear through and are not replaceable. The foam grill insert is beginning to disintegrate too. Too bad, because the rest is fine

    PX100 sound- but no foam ear pads?

    What sounds close of the PX100 but doesn't use foam ear pads? (I'm okay with Grado style pads, but the Sennheiser PX100 type make my ears itch like nuts) Trying to keep it under $80.

    Replacing the head band padding on Sennheiser PX100s?

    The fake leather wrapped foam has been deteriorating on my 6 year old PX100s. Unfortunately, the parts website only lists the foam ear pads. How can I replace the former? Also, is there a way to use other ear pads, the foam makes me itch

    How do you get JVC Marshmallows to fit ?

    How am I supposed to get these things to fit? I gave up, yanked the foam and the rubber off and stuck in Shure E2C black silicone tips on it and left it. Sounds better than the FX55s they replaced, IMHO. I have a second pair that I wanna try stock and can't get the foam to seal all the way
