    Durable 3.5mm female to right angle male extension cord recs?

    Hi head-fi! Despite my username I've been on this site for a while, but I left after buying a pair of SE530s to avoid any upgraditis. Unfortunately over time, I've had to get my SE530s serviced and replace the extension cord three times now -- it's just a poor design to have a straight...

    Building headphones?

    How would one go about making homemade headphones? I'm interested in doing this for an engineering project, and I'm curious as to what materials I would need. My idea would be to take KSC-75 drivers and make miniature grado-esque woodies. Any ideas?

    Music Genres and the Head-fi Journey

    Hi, I have a question.. I listen to hiphop, and I was just wondering if it's even worth it to upgrade past anything over $500.. Hiphop isn't like classical or indie rock or anything, since the music is mainly produced or sampled.. Would upgrading headphones be useless since I would hear...

    DJ Dangermouse and MF Doom Collab: DANGERDOOM

    I picked this up over the weekend. It's a great album, solid production by Dangermouse and great flow (clean flow, btw, no explicit lyrics by request of Cartoon Network) throughout. The first track is a bit disappointing, though, since it seems as if DangerDoom recorded that track before they...

    Buying HF-1s now... or later...

    I don't have any money right now, I'm only 15 so I don't have a credit card.. But I have MS-1s and a SMM that are about 200 bucks in value, probably a little less. I was just worried that if I don't get them now (since they're limited edition) the price to get even a *used* one will be above...

    Piano Rock?

    Does anybody know of any good non-hardcore rock that has either piano or synth in it? I like stuff like Ben Kweller, early Phantom Planet, even Hot Hot Heat and the Killers to some degree.. I was looking and I've only seen stuff like Shout Out Louds and Ringside (they have some synth..)...

    Small question..

    I was just thinking, would it be possible, for example, to get a button cell battery (like in watches) and wire it up to a tiny pushbutton switch, a resistor and an LED and fit it in the cups of some Grado cans without causing much reflection and other sound problems? Because that would look...

    Has anyone here upgraded to suit new musical tastes?

    MD-33s were the first headphones that I bought (and I thought they were expensive at the time) for my Karma. I used them mainly for listening to rock, but I found that the bass veiled the clarity of the highs, so I upgraded to e3s a few months afterwards. With the e3s, my rock sounded great, all...

    The new Audioscrobbler / lASt.fm

    Impressions? Personally, I think the pink makes text hard to read, and that it looks like it sold out with all the ads everywhere. Tagging music/artists etc. seems like a pointless feature as it should be tagged according to the genre of the track itself.. Just my opinion. Also, it's really...

    First Post: e4 Coupon Code and a question

    Hi, [I'm the same n00b from the Riovolution forums (I discovered the Chroma leak ), I'm 15 years old from Los Angeles county, and I already know what headphones can do to my wallet (I've purchased e3s, MS-1s, MD-33s, a Super Mini Moy and have built a cMoy).] Okay, I have a coupon code that...
