    Sony MDR-1AM2 - Impressions Thread

    Just wanted to share this purchase of a 4.4mm female to 6/35mm male balanced adapter that I found on ebay for cheap. Although it says it can't be used with AMPs, it works perfectly fine with my Schiit stack (magni3/modi3). The sound coming out of the balanced cable is much more crisp and...

    Where Can I Buy the Sennheiser IE800?

    Hey guys, I've been looking for the IE800s for almost a month now and was wondering if anyone knows where these can be bought and shipped to the US. I think it will be helpful for anyone else also looking to purchase them.

    Monster Turbine Pro Copper Review

    I gotta say, I love your reviews mark. I wholly agree with you, as I own both the MTPCs and IE8s, and even the IE7s before. For a high end IEM, The MTPCs don't sound anywhere close to as it should, but the build quality and style sets it apart. On really sunny days, I like to wear the MTPCs...

    westone 4 vs ie8?

    Currently I'm switching between W4, MTPC, and IE8s on my daily commute. Today I'm using the IE8s, and I must say I honestly like them just as much as the W4s. The W4s are more intimate and closed in with a narrower soundstage, but has amazing accuracy, balance, and DETAIL. I have never listened...

    Westone 4 Impressions and Reviews Thread

    That is a great mod on the sony hybrids. I also used sony hybrids but superglued them on a comply tip. However, putting the tube upside down and then just putting the sony hybrids on does the trick because it makes the stem a bit bigger, allowing for deeper insertion. I switched my mod to yours...

    Westone 4 Impressions and Reviews Thread

    I've listened to the Westone 4s for about 3 days now, and overall I think they have a balanced, neutral sound. Like many others have said, they do almost nothing wrong and are crisp and detailed. I use them with modded sony hybrids, as they provide the best isolation and sound for me. I de-cored...

    Sennheiser IE8: The Search for the Perfect Tips

    As most Sennheiser IE8 owners know, getting the right tips for their IE8s is one of the most important features because it changes the sound quality more than any other IEM. As a proud owner, I have tried multiple tips, seeing how each tip affects the sound quality. Usually, I've found that the...

    Sennheiser IE8 Impressions Thread  These have been the best tips I've used with the IE8s. They have the same sound tube as the IE8 and UE single flanges so that the soundstage stays the same, and they have a much deeper insertion, allowing for better isolation. I...

    James444's IEM giveaway thread (competition has ended - see post #344 and #354 for winners!)

    Awesome. Count me in! From what I've read on head-fi, I am most interested in the ATH-CK100s and FX-500s. The ATH-CK100s seem to be very balanced, after reading Sieg9198's Impressions thread ( I've listened to the...

    Sennheiser IE8 Impressions Thread

    I think your IE8s are fine. I just checked my IE8s and if I angle it I also see a very very faint line on the recessed part of the sound tube. The first pair I had, the line was very noticeable, as if it was glued together. But the sound tube looks a lot more professional than the first pair I...

    Sennheiser IE8 Impressions Thread

    the first IE8s I received was from someone selling on ebay who provided a receipt from some authorized dealer who sells them in Germany. When receiving the IE8s, the right ride showed some signs of wear, and the overall build quality was not as top notch as the second pair I received, which I...

    Sennheiser IE8 Impressions Thread

    What's funny is when I had my first pair of IE8s against the W3s, I preferred the W3s much more because I felt the IE8s had a recessed treble. However, After missing the IE8 sound, I decided to purchase a second pair from a fellow head-fi member, and the second pair I had was simply amazing. The...

    Sennheiser IE8 Impressions Thread

    I just received my second pair of IE8s from a fellow head-fi member, and I have good reason to believe my first pair was a fake. My first pair had a very overwhelming bass that recessed the treble quite a bit. I did not like them at all. However, the new pair of IE8s I have are amazing. The bass...
