    Dark electronica with a female singer?

    Check out The Glitch Mob - Between Two Points. That track features a female vocalist. If you dig their sound try their full lp Drink the Sea. The rest is instrumental but is excellent.

    Quote:   I couldn't find it on the site either. Must not be listed there anymore. I picked them up in store today.

    The IEM/Portable Headphones Deal Alerts Thread - Closed! Use the Deals Thread III instead.

    Not sure if anyone mentioned this but Future Shop is clearing out their stock of Sennheiser "Adidas" edition phones. If you're lucky you can snag a pair of the HD 25-1 II for $50 CAD. I paid $40 for the store demo as some one had cleared all the stock in the Edmonton area.

    FiiO E17 "ALPEN" - First Impression + Final Thought

    Have had my E17 for about a week and am really enjoying it. It's such a versatile little unit packed with features. Fiio has come a long way and continues to raise the bar on quality with each of their new products. Love the treble and bass eq. Just what I needed when the black metal gets too...

    I feel petty, but this annoyed me ...

    I think we all should keep in mind that we're the only people obsessing over headphones and if you're looking for validation from anybody outside of the head-fi community you're in for a harsh reality check :)

    Should I sell my Beats Pro for AKG701?

    I think that's gonna be too much of a sound signature shock for you. The K701s are about as bass light as headphones get. Very analytical and pretty much the polar opposite of Beats.   There's plenty of good options to ease out of those Beats. Depends what you want? What are you looking for...

    Spent So Much Money and Still Disappointed

    If you're going to take recommendations again I would suggest finding a retail store that you can demo them at. THe D2000 should be floating around somewhere. The Sony's won't be hard to find at all. Otherwise you may end up being disappointed again.    Otherwise, just get the Beats. Guys on...

    The Monoprice MP9927 PG 208.. MP8320 (MEP-933)..The $7.11 club..

    Quote: LOL no big deal. I think I'll still try to make a custom out of them. I'll use my dremel to trim the shell down to a ring around the driver and go from there.

    The Monoprice MP9927 PG 208.. MP8320 (MEP-933)..The $7.11 club..

    Well the shells are definitely easy to crack. The drivers, on the other hand, are pretty much stuck to the nozzle side of the shell. Removing them destroys them. I think this is typical for a lot of dynamic iems.

    The Monoprice MP9927 PG 208.. MP8320 (MEP-933)..The $7.11 club..

    Maybe I'm being a lazy ass not reading through this whole thread but has anyone cracked these babies open yet?   Bought three pairs thinking they would be a nice DIY custom project. Maybe someone has tips for opening them before I destroy one pair!   EDIT: Or do I have to be the guy to...

    how long are memory wire sections on IEM cables supposed to last?

    I'd recommend sealing the end of the memory wire section with a bead of silicon or something.

    Custom I'ems or Full size 1k budget

    Get custom IEMs and never look back. I wasted a lot of money before I figured this out.

    How should custom IEM perfect fit feel like in the ears?

    Sounds like your right piece isn't snug enough. The seal shouldn't break that easily (or at all in a perfect world). If it breaks when your mouth is only an inch open that needs to be fixed. With the acrylic ear pieces I have the seal can and will break but only when my mouth is really wide...

    Hearing new details in new headphones is a myth

    Quote: Pretty much coming to the same conclusion.   I brought both my miracles and ibuds to work tonight to do a bit of testing. Source is an iphone 3GS. I'm finding it very difficult to find details with the miracles that cannot be heard on the ibuds. The closest I've gotten so far...

    What gift for gf?

    You guys kind of missed the part where he said he had no dough. Plus we don't even know if they are seeing eachother before he leaves so that pretty much rules out a vacation. He needs ideas on the cheap, sentimental side.

    Hearing new details in new headphones is a myth

    He's not sharing or contributing anything by posting that. He's stroking his ego like the billion other time wasting wonderkids on the internet policing grammar. It's great that you teach your daughter lessons but I'm sure you don't correct strangers on the street when they use words...
