    The best earphone in the world......

    I think it's interesting how almost nobody here has tried the ES3's. Any word on those?

    MD33 vs E2c

    Yeah, I also emphatically disagree. The highs are far from golden, but if the Shure highs are rolled off, the EX71SL does not have highs at all (in my opinion).

    Circumaural Grados!

    My fear, though, is that this will sacrifice bass response for comfort...

    MD33 vs E2c

    Too tired to post anything lengthy, but I've heard both, and my impressions were (keep in mind, impressions) that E2C's had the MD33's beat in bass and overall sound quality, but for the price and comfort, I preferred the MD33's. This may change once the soft-flex sleeves come rolling out for...

    Meier Audio Porta Corda MkII Followup!

    It's Monday in southern California and I don't have it . (Mail already came for today).

    Need advice ... lost my E4P's

    Try the Westone UM2's. They're cheaper than E5's, and about 80% of people who have tried both UM2 and E5 prefer the UM2 (that's my general impression from the board, since I haven't tried the UM2's).

    Troublesome HD650 burn-in

    Well, you can pause overnight, but then it wouldn't be burning in for that period of time .

    is it just me?

    Yeah, same here. I use a cut pair of tri-flanges on my E5C's, and although they stay in relatively well while sitting down, if I exercise with them, the left one always seems to slowly slide out while the right one stays in.

    If you had won the lottery what would you buy?

    I'd buy Grado (the company, not the headphones) .

    lack of grado comfort seriously exaggerated?

    I don't have a huge problem with Grado headphones either. They're not uncomfortable per se, but they're definitely not comfortable. The people who are crying about comfort issues are the ones spoiled by the Sennheiser pillows . Also, those who complain about comfort: have you tried the...

    ER-4's for $219 at Headroom

    Haven't they ALWAYS been that price? Now if they'd just bring back the 10% off coupon...

    sik din vs. pocketdock

    Well, just think about it. Does it make sense to spend 100 dollars on an interconnect to use with your 80 dollar headphones? Especially with a portable (crap) source, and given the fact that the interconnects are short, I don't think it would make a huge difference.

    HeadRoom10% Discount for '05?

    Yeah, this is kind of off-topic, but I was just wondering. Is Head-Fi planning on having another 10% off coupon this year?

    Are the shure e3c worth springing from e2c

    Oh, god. I read that first post quickly and thought that you HAD a pair of E2C's already. Sorry. Yeah, buy the E3C's. The E2C's, as they stand, are not comfortable at all. That alone is almost worth the spring to the E3C's.

    Grado SR-125 impulse buy

    For $150, you probably would've gotten ripped. For $95, I'd say keep them and be happy . $95 is what most people pay for SR80's.

    Are the shure e3c worth springing from e2c

    I would put in a big vote for "no." I have had a pair of E2C's before, and although I have not listened to the E3C, I do own a pair of E5C's. Roughly estimating that the E3C's are about the average of those two in terms of quality, I would say that the E2C's are superb portable headphones, and...

    HEAROS, cheap er4's?

    Search forums. Hearos basically rebrands Etymotics as their own. Same thing.
  19. rogerlee


    Just wondering: have you ever wondered that you might have a defective pair? I mean, the E5C's aren't for everyone, but when ANYONE thinks they sound the same as the Apple stock ear-buds, something's up.

    ER6 for under $50 shipped

    I ordered one for $50. Then I found out about the 20% coupon and ordered again. So, I've got one coming for 50 and one coming for 40. If my older sister doesn't want the ones for 50, I think I might just sell 'em here on Head-Fi .

    My Altec Lansing 5021's Are Spanking My New Bookshelf Speakers

    Yeah, there are graphs for headphones available somewhere in the headphone forum comparing pre-burnin to burned in that show very prominent differences. Also, many claim that the burn-in phenomenon is VERY easy to tell when listening to HD650's. Also, some people have compared their equipment...

    Ety ER-4 Triflanges - Uncomfortable?

    Just a quick question. I'm one of those people who can't use the Shure tri-flanges as tri-flanges even with the stem trimmed. To use them, I need to cut off the smallest flange to make them work or else I get zero seal. That said, if I were to buy some ER-4's, would I experience a similar...

    E5C Right Channel Problems - I'm Sad :(

    Man, right on Christmas. I picked up my E5C's today and was listening to it out of my iPod when I noticed that the sound was totally off. Then I realized that the right channel was about ten times quieter than my left channel (which was fine), and that if I turned up the volume to compensate...

    Gilmore Lite/PSU or V2?

    It seems weird how the V2 is only $70 more than the Gilmore Lite+PSU combo. Given this, what would you rather buy (of these three options): a) Gilmore Lite, standard power ($300) b) Gilmore Lite, premium power ($480) c) Gilmore V2 ($550) Build time is not a huge issue. Thanks...
