I did a nozzle filter removal from the IM70 and it cleaned up the sound quite significantly but don't like how it's straight open to the driver... that OCD So... my question is the RE0/RE-400 acoustically transparent?

    Comfort playing a role in interpretation of sound?

    I believe that comfort plays hugely in the role of how you view what you hear. Most modern planar magnetics are weighty/heavy/impractical to wear, they bear strain on your head and I feel that contributes to a closed-in sound and perhaps even a more 'weighty' sound. Open dynamics are much more...

    SM3 hype dying down?

Other universal models such as the Heir Audio 4.Ai, PFE232, Westone 4 are commonly recommended over the SM3, so I'm curious to where the SM3 stands now. Do people still regard this model as one of the best out there or have...

    Worried about hearing...

    I'm only 18, nearly 19 years old. I've always listened to music at a reasonable volume I think but I've listened to music for extended sessions (at a least a few hours, possibly up to maybe 8 hours a day or something) I've done a few online hearing tests and I just found out I can only hear...

    Need mini-mini male-female (around 6ft long) extension cable

    I need a decent cable to plug into the HDTV.. I don't know if I trust the cheaper brands but is HOSA a good choice? I was looking at a higher quality cable like the cables from Markertek (specifically the Belden Star Quad cable with Neutrik connector) but apparently they need a minimum of $100...

    Isolation comparison

    How is the isolation of the RE0 compared to HD 25? I really liked the RE0's isolation as it wasn't overly noise-cancelling, it was juuuuuuuust right.  I heard the RE0's isolation wasn't that good for an IEM but IEM's pretty much have the greatest isolation out of any headphone technologies...

    Thinking of buying TF10, have a few questions about the build quality

    Is it worth spending ~$160 for the TF-10 if I have heard horrible stories about the build quality? I have read that the cable is the weakest part of the model, I have also read that the cable can be replaced... can i just by the TF10's and replace the cable straight away with something a little...

    not overly impressed with re0/re-zero :(

    I know this may sound weird but I've had two pairs of Head-Direct RE0/HiFiMan RE-ZERO and I was never overly impressed with the sound quality (plus the build quality is terrible). Nothing in the sound signature really stands out to me, maybe it's just my ears I don't know. Sometimes it's a...
