    3-meter / 10-foot IEM Cable

    Hello All, I finally got my hands on some Westone W40's, and I'm enjoying them. These are hardly an obscure set of 'phones, but here's a link anyway. My usage of these is consists of plugging them into a (desktop) computer sitting on the floor under my desk, and with me standing at my desk...

    ER4P > HF5? Are you sure?

    My HF5's are slowly dying so it's time to either replace or upgrade.   I have enjoyed my HF5's because I like fast, precise bass and don't want anything with a "slower" sound.   I seem to like the idea of spending less on their replacements but the lower-tier model, the MC5s, were adjudged...

    HELP- RE-400 Large Tips?

    Just got my RE-400s recently and can't get a good seal with the largest-size double-flange silicone tips that came with them.   I tried some Sony eartips I had from some other earphones, and they're working for now. They're the largest ones you see in the image below, with the turquoise...

    Headphone-Out Noise from GS3 >:(

    PROBLEM:   My Samsung GS3 has so much noise (hissing, white noise) added to the sound when I listen to music. It's most audible at low volumes and during quiet sections of the music.   FACTS:   It happens regardless of file storage location- whether I play music from either my SDHC card or...

    High-Quality 3.5mm Extension Cable

    Hello,   I am looking for a 3.5mm female-to-male extension cable, length 15-25 feet.   This will go from my desktop PC soundcard to my IEM's or HD-25 1 ii's.   My soundcard came with an extension cable but that's only 6' and not long enough at all.   I am posting because there...

    Counterpart to the Etymotic HF5?

    I've got some HF5's and sometimes wish for more bass and a generally more "lush" sound.   Right now I'm listening to the Sony MDR-EX0300's that came with my Walkman and am finding their sound to be poorly-defined and with excessive, under-controlled bass.   Is there an earphone with a...

    AMP for Iphone- Worth It? Which One?

    Hello,   My niece uses her iphone 4 to listen to MP3's through either her ibuds or the supraaural headphones I got her.   I'm wondering if she can benefit from an amp but have a couple of questions:   Will there be any benefit to doing so? Can she use a LOD from her iphone 4 to an...

    ATH-A#00 Question

    All,   I'm considering the A900x but I would use them not only for music. I would also use them for watching movies, which means sitting in my recliner.   My question- do the A#00 headphones slide back or rotate back on your head when you are reclined?

    HD 25 SP cable used with HD 25-1 ii; degradation of SQ?

    I bought my HD 25-1 ii's with the intent of using them as portable headphones but I find myself using them more at home and I don't care for the 1.3m single-sided cable.   I would like to use the HD 25 SP's 3m dual-sided cable but am curious- will doing so result in a loss of SQ?  ...

    Sennheiser HD 5X8-Series Shorter Cables Available Soon

    Of all places, I was looking here and a Sennheiser rep said... well, see the link.   IMO Sennheiser should've offered this right from the beginning given that the HD 5x8 series comes with a twist-and-pull detachable cable.   A 4' cable with a 3.5mm jack is something Bose got right with...

    Cowon J3 v. Walkman Z

    I've predictably run out of space on my Walkman A-Series 16G and am considering the Walkman Z-Series 32G or Cowon J3 32G as a replacement as the 32G and 64G versions of the A-Series seem to be hard to find in non-USA markets.   Thoughts?

    Circumaurals Like Porta Pros?

    I'm sure this has been done to death but I don't have much time for wading through archived posts.   I recently bought and tried out the Sennheiser HD 555's and liked the following: small size of earpieces enough bass replaceable ear pads & cable velour ear pads & headband single cable...
