    Imelda May

    Saw her live at Brecon Jazz back in 2007, there were about 40 people there but it was awesome!! She's found some good backing musicians too.

    Shaving, gents

    Glad to hear it's going OK. Did you spend as long lathering the cream as with the soap? Maybe try it in a bowl a few times so you can at least see your lather progress. It is a pretty good cream that one, it's in my rotation of about 6 and produces reasonable results, albeit not as good as some...

    Limited budget, need IEM

    How about a beyerdynamic in that range, the dtx71 recently released would be a good bet, it's the same sound-wise as the dtx80 and they are pretty well built. Anything you like/don't like about the re0?

    Welcome Monster "Turbine Challenge" Reviewers!

    I'd hope 2 1/2 weeks is fine, if they're all shipping from the US mine'll take a week to arrive anyway and there are quite a few bank holidays coming up which will probably slow it up further... (unless they're coming from a local distributor)

    Hi nub here

    Quote: Because this forum format doesn't allow for them, there are a few 'useful links' in the full size section but all we have in here are sponsor ads. Good luck in your search, remember to check the date of any reviews you read, budget earphones, particularly, have got a lot better...

    Fischer Audio DBA-04

    Quote: Yeah, but why another one, unless the dba-02 is being discontinued, how is one company supposed to market both???

    Shaving, gents

    You actually finished something! I've been shaving properly now since about august and haven't finished anything yet apart from two free samples, and i'm not likely to for a couple of years yet, oh well, it's cheaper than collecting headphones...

    Electronic Music Exchange (House, DnB, Dubstep, etc.)

    I think i've got to bookmark that post lilley, i'm at a major disadvantage with trance, I got into it in about 2006, first album of it I got was In Search of Sunrise 5, since then you only ever hear most euphoric ones in clubs if they're not new releases.

    I like pretty much all Above & Beyond, though my favourite of theirs is and always will be Indonesia, don't know why, nothing wrong with not liking it though, there'll be others, but maybe post some music you like rather than complaining about everyone else's music, i'd be interested for one...

    Portable amp for Etymotic hf3

    Have you got your hf3's yet? I suggest listening to them first, I don't think they need an amp at all, plus you'll lose the iphone compatibility using one.

    Beyerdynamics DTX 35s?

    You can get them for £15 in the UK, I wouldn't expect much at that price, $50 at headroom sounds pretty steep by comparison.

    Electronic Music Exchange (House, DnB, Dubstep, etc.)

    Most albums are available on CD, some releases from the smaller labels are only on vinyl or as a download, or sometimes as a vinyl that comes with a code for a download which is nice, ripping from vinyl is a PITA. And, no, you can't reformat them to a better quality file.

    Recommendations for <$400 IEMs?

    Have you heard any good earphones before? That might give someone a basis of what you define as 'good' bass. There are a lot of fine options, Give the chart in this post a read:

    Shaving, gents

    I've just got to pick up on: "Nivea Sensitive Shaving Cream", is that canned stuff? I'm sure there are different products available in the US but that doesn't exist in the UK, if it is a can and you haven't used good old fashioned cream in a tube with a brush it might even be an allergic...

    in-ears are makeing me crazy

    kova4a: The newer ones are worth a shot the ones i've heard (cx250, cx271) are much less abusive on the ears, although they retail at about $30 not $70ish.   @OP Just an observation but you're hovering around virtually every iem in the price range that has ever had a good review. Bear in...

    Multi-IEM Review - 352 IEMs compared (Pump Audio Earphones added 04/03/16 p. 1106)

    Thanks for posting the surge pro review, it sounds pretty spot on as usual. It's good to have them compared to other BA phones in their range, I did wonder how they compared to something like the pl50, probably not well but they're about the same price across the pond at least.   Do you ever...

    Headphone or earphone? How much is the beats tour in your part of the world? Do you need good isolation? We could do with some more information if you want useful replies, there are rather a lot of options.

    TripleFi 10's on Amazon question?

    The official name is the 10 pro but no, there is no difference, except the expensive one is sold by a third party seller. There are only two versions, the standard and the 'vi' one with a mic.
