      Nobody paid "zealously" for anything, I did however pay for a product that was not yet complete, not manufactured, and certainly not shipped, under the agreement that when it was manufactured, I would get one shipped to me.  That's how pre-order works, there is no "right" to receive updates...

    iPhone 7 Will Revolutionize Portable Audio for the First Time in a Decade

      In a thread extremely optimistic and naively titled "apple will revolutionize" and then explaining how the company that sells $700 smartphones bundled with absolutely garbage earphones to protect their precious ~30% margins is out to revolutionize audio quality for a small subset of users, I...

    Looking for earbud alternatives, any ideas? Sony NWZ-W273s

    Good luck!  I think the popular thing for bloggers to write was that they lacked detail and over emphasized bass, but they are Sony so I think they could have written that before actually listening to them.  Like most IEM's the fit is the biggest factor to sound, I'm right between the medium and...

    Looking for earbud alternatives, any ideas? Sony NWZ-W273s

    I found some triple flanges on ebay that fit, haven't had a chance to swim with them yet, maybe this weekend.   I honestly don't give a crap about the sound quality, so you'll want to post that in a different thread.  Anyone who is giving serious thought to the soundstage in the middle of a 12...

    FS Sennheiser CX300 CX-300 Stop wondering and Try them Out for Yourself

    "exactly what I paid for" isn't really what I look for as a buyer either. I can understand a sellers thought process, they're like new, as good as new, etc but if it's the same price, I usually go somewhere with a return policy! I could never say that in the FS forums, so woohoo for wrong...

    Do the CX300's have the "Sennheiser Sound"?

    Making Grados lil more comfy

    Does everyone mod their grado's? Maybe I just have a small head, but after a couple days of getting used to them, they aren't really uncomfortable. I enjoy wearing them for short naps, I can't roll over or anything, so I don't fall in too deep of sleep.

    Worth upgrading my Grado SR-60s to SR-80s or SR-125s?

    What's your source? That's the most important thing. If you're using a source that doesn't maximize the SR-60's, then a can upgrade isn't what you need.

    beyer DT440 vs grado sr80

    I'll be the first to admit it takes a couple days, the first night after a couple hours my ears were pretty red, not too comfortable. Sounded so good though, I couldn't take them off.
