    Fostex new RP headphones - T50RPmk3, T40RPmk3 and T20RPmk3

    I installed all the Mayflower mods minus the felt on driver and cotton. Definitely destroyed the bass when I had them in. I took out the original baffle dampener and cut out a rectangle for the center grid, held down with two thin strips of double-sided tape. Helped a lot to smooth out the...

    Fostex T50RP Incremental Mods and Measurements

    I'd like bring out vocals and guitars more on my MK3's. Would mods directly on the backside of the driver help with this? I'm not too sure what those mods actually do to the sound signature. Are they easily reversible? I'm afraid damaging the stock white dampening on the driver if I stick felt...

    Which IEM to get for electronica? (~$200 or less)

    Bump. So out of all of these headphones mentioned(and maybe other suggestions), which would have the best microdetail while still suiting my taste in music? I'm also considering bumping up my budget to $300, since I am planning to keep the IEMs for a long while.

    The Audio Technica M50 studio monitor thread

    Just hopped on the M50 bandwagon and I'm loving it (:   What are the head band and pad made out of? I'm guessing that it's not real leather. What do you guys use to condition them?

    Recommendation for an amp for my purposes.

    So I recently got a pair of M50 and a Clip+. I know that the M50 do not need an amp, but I figure why not get one if it'll improve the SQ. I'm looking to spend around $100 or less for an introductory portable amp (so far, I'm looking between the Mini^3, cmoyBB from jsdlabs, and the E7). I listen...

    Help with equalizing M50's!

    Do different people experience different peaks for the same pair of headphones??

    Help with equalizing M50's!

    So I just picked up a new pair of M50s yesterday, and I'm loving it right now. Since they are new, I'm still burning them in. I was looking through this site and came across the tutorial on how to equalize headphones, and I've been trying to figure out how to correctly to do it, but all of it is...

    Which one of these headphones to get?

    Why must you guys make the decision making so hard for me T__T;

    Which one of these headphones to get?

    What do you mean by that the HD555/595 terminate with a 1/4" TRS? Now I'm just trying to decide between the MS-1, SRH440, HD438 and HD280. I wish I could just try them all out right now =\...

    Which one of these headphones to get?

    That could be an option, but I'd rather keep my money spending to a minimum since I have other things I'm going to need my money for this semester. Added the Shure's as another option too now. EDIT: Also, I'd like to know if any of the other options listed would be better for my uses.

    Which one of these headphones to get?

    I am trying to get a new pair of headphones after losing my pair of MS-1's. I really liked how they sounded, so if anything I might just get another pair of them. I can't really specify what kind of music I usually listen to, since I pretty much listen to all kinds of genre. I am also going to...

    Lost my headphones and need new ones :(

    hmm, i was pretty much convinced by the review so i just placed my order for the RE0's. Ordered some comply tips to go with them too ^^. How long do the RE0's usually take to come if I'm shipping to America?

    Lost my headphones and need new ones :(

    is there any reason why the RE0's prices were cut down?? I'd really like to know the difference between the Klipsch Custom 2 and the RE0 so I can make the right choice between them =\

    Which starter IEM to get?

    Hmm, alright thanks for the advice. The only reason I want one right now, is because if i don't get it, by the time I save up all my money for the super.fi 5 pro's, my snowboarding trip will be over, but if i do spend my money to buy some decent starter IEM's, I will be to use them for the trip...

    Which starter IEM to get?

    why is that? Is there a lot of suction like there is on the skullcandy ink'd and that bothered me a lot when I used those. What are the differences between the ER-6i and the CK7? But from the comments i'm getting so far, CK7 seems to be a better starter IEM for me...

    Cheap Starter Amp.

    also, how does the PA2V2 compare with the BSG and penguinamp?

    Which starter IEM to get?

    hmm, anything a bit cheaper than the UM1's? Cause if I were to spend around 100 for it, I could just wait a few more weeks to get the Super.fi 5 Pro. I currently am using a pair of Skullcandy Smokin' Buds, but I'm not entirely satisfied with them. Will the Soundmagic PL30 make a big difference...

    In need for a cheap DAP!

    Where did you order the 2gb clip for only 21 dollars? I'm looking all over the place, but I just don't see it anywhere. Should I try to save me some money and get it used or refurbished?

    Which starter IEM to get?

    I was thinking about getting the Super.fi 5 Pro's, but they are a bit pricey for now. Probably will get one in a few months. Also I kind of need this for my upcoming snowboarding trip, so I'm going to have a hat or helmet on covering my ears, so they seem like they stick out too much for that...

    Which starter IEM to get?

    Okay, so I've been putting a lot of thought into this, and I was thinking maybe it isn't too smart of me to jump straight to the UE Super.fi 5 Pro. I'm still new to the audiophile world, and I feel that I just won't appreciate those IEM's as much as I could if I didn't work my way up to them...

    Cheap Starter Amp.

    Alright, I guess I'll get the better headphones first. Probably first the super.fi 5 pros, and then get an amp. Probably will want to buy a nice set of cans afterwards for home use. So for future reference, I'm considering getting the FBSG cMOY's, or a Penguinamp Caffeine Ultra. I searched for...

    Cheap Starter Amp.

    Are the PA2V2 supposed to be around 30-40 dollars? I see them being sold on ebay for that price, which is about half of what the labeled price is on the main site. Is there much difference between the penguinamp caffeine and PA2v2? Are these two much better than the Fii0 E3?

    Cheap Starter Amp.

    I'm new in the audiophile world, and many people say that getting an amp greatly improves the SQ. There are so many different portable amps out there, and I just don't know what is the pro's and con's of each one. I think I'm looking for a cheap amp that is relatively neutral. What are my...

    Which starter IEM to get?

    I looked at the v-moda's, but i read too many reviews saying that the wiring or structure is really weak, and many of them broke down within weeks of use.

    Which starter IEM to get?

    Hmm, if I start saving my money now, minus some money that i'll be spending during black friday, I'd say my budget is around $150. Would it be worth it to save up a little more and get the Super.fi 5 Pro, or is it not worth the extra money? How does Westone compare with UE? EDIT: I find it...
