    MMCX Earbud Recommendations for Bluetooth cable? (Not IEMS)

    Maybe this is a dumb question, but I've been wanting wireless earbuds for a long time, but every time I look for some they seem to be IEMs only. However recently I found out about bluetooth mmcx connector cables and earbuds that support this option, however I'm seeing some info which says some...

    Earbuds Round-Up

    Any idea where to get the BE5's? They always seem to be out of stock on the blox website which seems to be the only place to buy them, can't even get the BE3's anymore, glad I have a pair, but worried about when they die.

    Earbuds Round-Up

      By big step, I'm guessing you mean big step down in terms of quality? Do the Baldoor E100's fall on anyone's radar? They also seem pretty popular, but it looks like they have volume controls built into the cable, and I can't really tell if they are necessarily good as well, or also just hyped...

    Old Record Players Technics SL-1300 and SL-5200

    I have these 2 old record players from some older friends. They were stored in a garage and weren't selling at garage sales. I cleaned them off, and though the dust covers have some scratches and there's some minor rust on the medal outside the dust cover, aside from the bodies. On the SL-5200...

    Perfect iPod to portable amp LOD

    I have been in the market for a nice new setup for a while now and finally decided on a pair of headphones (Sennheiser HD595's) and a portable amp (most likely iBasso D4). However I still need an LOD for my 2nd gen ipod touch, and can't seem to find anything i really like. I see the things on...

    Help picking best headphones for daughter, under $150 for Xmas..

    How long does she wear headphones for at a time? is comfort also one of the variables you are considering here? Also I can't say too much on the open vs closed thing, but I would imagine open headphones or semi open would likely be safer as it at the very least allows for hearing the...

    Which Full Sized Open Headphone?

    I've been researching the best headphone and amplifier to get for the past few weeks now, and was set on the Senn HD 595's, after deciding it would be better to get them than the 555's. I then began looking at portable amplifiers to use with my ipod touch 2g, through a line out of course, and I...

    Question on iBasso D2+ vs D4

    Which headphone amp and any customaizations?

    Okay, I've been doing some research, trying to find the right portable amplifier and a good budget. Right now I am considering the Mini^3, as it seems to be at a good price point, a great, deal, and works well. However, I have a few uncertainties from things I have run across in my searching...

    HD555 for Movies

    Wow, creepy, I have the X-Fi surround sound. I never got the analog 6 channels to come out, but it works great with dolby digital and dts passthrough in the optical to my surround sound system, and I've also been considering the HD555's though not sure on those yet, and not so much for movie...

    Replacing broken Yuin OK3's, earbuds or something else?

    Okay, so today the right earbud on my OK3's went, well actually the cable went down by the plug, but the right earbud goes in and out a lot. I luckily have Yuin G2A's to use as back-ups, but really I don't view them as a good permanent solution as They flap in the wind, meaning they sound like...

    Yuin G1A and G2A

    Could anyone who has these headphones maybe try and compare them to the Yuin PK or OK series? specifically the PK3 and OK3? I have been intrigued by these headphones ever since the first G1's were announced, right now I am seeing the G1A costs $54 with shipping and despite that being...

    The bad thing about having 2 portable sources.

    One thing I would recommend is having some sort of personal information on your iPod touch, when I found a beaten up 1G 8GB touch on the ground a little way away from my college I was only able to find the guy and return it to him because he had aim on his touch and even without internet it let...

    2G touch skips with lossless - bug has been fixed with firmware 2.2.1

    Maybe it is just because I got my iPod Touch 2G recently, but I am not noticing any skipping when the screen locks/shuts off or otherwise.

    Headphones dying?

    that's alright. I just need to contemplate if I can wait a few weeks until I go home to ship the headphones out or if I want to do it right away. not sure if I can live with them lol. maybe have my broken pk3's shipped up and use those? wish I didn't give my roommate my sennheisers now.

    Headphones dying?

    I emailed them and the responses seem to be automatic. it told me to "Please print your online receipt, note you need a replacement, and ship to Fang Bian 5317 94th st Elmhurst, NY11373" if that's the case then do I need to ship the headphones too? do they need their packaging? I am not...
