    2GB memory stick makes PSP amazingly versatile!

    Videos on the PSP is great. I just run them off my 2gb memory stick. What's great is that there is absolutely no lag when using Fast Forward or Rewind. Furthermore, watching anime on it is even better Audio wise i have to say the PSP isn't that great, but if you just need something for...

    PA2V2 hissing

    I emailed Gary about this, it's not hissing, it's actually static, which is natural when you blast the volume to full. As his guide says, the best results are at 60%. So what I do now is turn up the source volume and put the amp volume at around 50-60%

    Are you supposed to use the foam covers with the stock iPod earbuds?

    the foam covers help them stay in your ear (since the ibuds are pretty small) and by having a better fit, you also get the best sound possible from your earbuds.

    Recommend me a pair of gaming headphones

    I'll say it before anyone else, A500's I heard they are quite similar to the A900's. Though I dont play online RPG's, I do use them for Counter-Strike, and they are very nice and accurate when you need to locate enemies by gunfire or by footsteps. They're very nice and precise, you can hear...

    The Unamped Myth: A500 and PA2V2

    hooking up the A900's with my PA2V2 sounds similar...but at the same time it just sounds so much better, despite minor differences, i guess it gives me more reason to listen louder However, I do notice a slightly better bass response, there's more punch to the bass which the PA2V2 is known...

    How does the Shure E2C hold up against the ER-6i?

    I think with the ER6i's many people do not retain a proper seal with them, for those who complain about the lack of bass. I found the ER6i's to do everything quite well for me considering its price. Listening to the E4C's, they sound very similar with the exception of bass, which it seems you...
