    Lol... . I think I phrased it wrong.. .hahaha.. . But anyway, I made it to the minimum allowed price point..lol.. . Both the X1 and IM70 don't go lower than a hundred dollars each.. . That being said, I have sold every other IEM I've ever owned and settled with the IM70 for the long run. I can't...

    The Fiio X3 Thread.

    James then should have said that the 2.18beta is only exclusively for the beta testers instead of plainly stating that it has been released. Anyway, thank you for clearing that up. Just gonna keep waiting for the final release.

    Multi-IEM Review - 352 IEMs compared (Pump Audio Earphones added 04/03/16 p. 1106)

    Joker, I see you've reviewed the Earsonics SM3 v1. Have you heard the v2?.. . If you have, is there any notable difference between the two? Thanks.

    Nice seeing the Brainwavz M3 get some love around here. The M3 is one of my favorite IEMs of all time.. . Beautiful sounding IEMs that still impress me to this very day even after owning some pretty good ones.. . I always keep it with me..

    New Shure SE215 - First Impressions

    I had them at 2 separate times.. . I had the LTDs first.. . Sold those.. . Then got the standard ones a few months later... . From what I can recall, the LTDs have deeper bass response, probably better highs, but it wasn't at all evident due to the bass.. . The standards are better (individual...

    Shure se215 or Hifiman re-400?

    Try them with after-market cables,.. I slapped on a FiiO RC-SE1 cable and the improvement is pretty vast. Details opened up, overall presentation tightened up, improved instrument situation, better soundstage, a little more sparkle... . I know there are doubters when it comes to replacement...

    Reply to review by 'amzies01' on item 'VSONIC VC02'

    Only if u keep taking them apart...they get loose...mine's ok still... I reversed the polarity and just made them stay that way... Or do what I did to my other pair... I glued the cable to the housing... Why? It'll be cheaper to buy a new pair than to get cables...

    New Shure SE215 - First Impressions

    This might not be the place but it's still an SE215... With a FiiO RC-SE1 cable... For about $35, all this bass bloat and less clarity talk can cease. Anyway, yes, you do sound like an A-T fanboy. Most of the people here who like the SE215 aren't looking for an analytical, extremely detailed...

    Thanks for the suggestion bro.:-) I think the Sony Hybrid mod is doing the job anyway... . I'm getting the FiiO cables for Shures on Sunday... They're available locally here in the Philippines... They don't cost that much either... Just an alternative to the stock Shure cables (which are pretty...

    *updated* Shure se215 ,Etymotic HF5 or Yamaha Eph-100

    I'd go with the SE215 Special Edition... I modded mine to fit Sony Hybrids which added to the clarity and detail, brought out the highs, minimized some of the midbass therefore clearing up even more the already spectacular midrange... Very natural sounding.... Kinda reminds me of the RE-400 cept...

    New Shure SE215 - First Impressions

    Well, I want to comment on this as I have both (technically speaking...) But.... 1. I have the SE215 SPE's... 2. I modded them to use Sony Hybrids, balancing the sound so much better... It not sounds thinner than the M3's, more refined, a more natural presentation... The m3's are a bit more...

    Why Rockbox A Sansa Clip+?

    I'm late to the party, but whatever... It removes the EU-sanctioned volume limitations... You can boost the volume louder on Rockbox... Plus increased battery life, speed of the UI... And so much more features like crossfade options,gapless playback... . and themes... . I use a Rockboxed Sansa...

    Well, it's been a long time coming for me... I am definitely loving the Shure sound... As for the upgrade, maybe a 535.. . but I do pride myself as a budget-fi dude, so... This Clip+ and SE215 SE rig is more than perfect for me... . :-) .. .
