    New Beyerdynamic Pro X line: DT 700 Pro X and DT 900 Pro X

    Show pics please! I'm also guessing that there's less of a treble emphasis relative to DT 770

    While very good, the HD660S has a pretty different frequency response. It has considerably less bass and treble.

    Focal Clear headphones

    I tried to find as much as possible using Google Translate but I suppose they do have a normal return policy, e.g. 14 or 30 days?

    Maximum output voltage: New MacBook Airs

    Has anyone measured (or knows) the maximum output voltage of the newer (2018 onwards) MacBook Airs (i.e. 3.5mm jack)? An old post from NwAvGuy shows that the 2011 MacBook Airs were rated at 1.4 VRMS; the new MacBook Pros are rated at 2 VRMS - and I can confirm that the latter sounds about...

    The New HD 560S: Linear Acoustics at a Breakthrough Value

    An iPhone can drive these up to 108-9 db; a MBP can get to around 115 db. You'll most likely be fine.

    The New HD 560S: Linear Acoustics at a Breakthrough Value

    Indeed. I have to say I'm impressed by their social media team and the fact that they actually answer technical questions on frequency response, driver configurations, etc, which other companies usually don't do.

    If you still love Etymotic ER4, this is the thread for you...

    It's $30 for the kit plus $41 shipping to the UK, which sucks, but I can't even place a UK order - 'Sorry, no quotes are available for this order at this time' - regardless of what options I choose.

    If you still love Etymotic ER4, this is the thread for you...

    Feels like I'll never get my hands on the new dual flanges! I ordered a third pair of brand new ER2 series (including through Amazon UK direct, now another UK retailer) well after they were introduced and sold online but it's always triple flanges. Getting some serious FOMO.

    True, even though the code is correct - 556906 - and the original ones are 578881. There is a chance these are the ones you need but yeah, it's a shame they've discontinued these.

    I've been looking for these too but it seems like they're sold out everywhere - plus discontinued. I just got the classic velours instead. Edit: I found this on some Finnish website but I have no idea if it's legit (seems OK)...

    Reply to review by 'sainteb' on item 'InEar ProMission X'

    @F700 I've tried the SD-2 which appears to have the same fit and nozzle. Seal is great due to the custom-like fit and I was able to get a nice flush fit - despite the short and seemingly not so thin nozzle. And yes, deep insertion is certainly possible. Interestingly, the SD series actually...

    Review: InEar StageDiver Series

    Yes. Probably one of your best no-nonsense bets, along with ER4. Comfort and ease-of-use are much better compared to the Etys while isolation is nearly as good with a good fit. FR and isolation measurements: https://www.innerfidelity.com/images/InEarStageDriverSD2.pdf

    Has anyone tried a cable with equal left-right length on these and does it look alright? And do cables like Oyaide have different L/R length like the original?

    Sony budget earphone discussion thread (MH750, MH755, MH1C, EX300, etc)

    Hi all. I can't do soldering so I was wondering what the ideal audio extension cable length for the 755 would be, assuming that the original cable is 60/80cm on each side. I am guessing that 1m would be too long while 50cm might be a tiny bit short for over the ear use (but still the better option).

    Yes, it does. It probably took me a month to get used to it the first time.

    If you still love Etymotic ER4, this is the thread for you...

    That's definitely true. Not too many options to be honest, you can either use an ER4-compatible cable on your ER2 (like from your ER4-XR, although the colour scheme doesn't match) or get a custom cable or adapter. @ClieOS here on Head-Fi makes some pretty good cables.

    If you still love Etymotic ER4, this is the thread for you...

    The single best improvement you can make in terms of microphonics is wearing your Etymotics over the ear. It might feel weird at first but it works totally fine. I can't comment on those cables (besides noting that they are super expensive) but there are certain people on Head-Fi who can make...

    Earbuds Round-Up

    Greetings. Relatively new to earbuds as I primarily use IEMs. I've been reading this thread for a while and I'm looking for some decent earbuds, preferably with a detachable cable. It seems like the BK2 are quite popular, are there any other alternatives you would recommend under $30? RY4S looks...
