    I put Beyer velour pads on my Panasonic RP-HTX7's

    I really like these cans, but they were becoming increasingly uncomfortable due to the plastic ear cups cracking. I've seen this on other people's cans as well in the street, and remembered that I had some Beyer velour pads in my closet, which were supposed to be fit onto my Sony V6's before...

    New AKG 240's (55 ohm) for $95 Too good to pass up?

    I've got my finger on the trigger, but it would be kind of irresponsible of me to purchase them at the moment, since I've slightly bigger financial fish to fry at the moment. But is the likely hood of them staying at that price point good or bad ? $95.25 shipped new from Amazon. Doug...

    Very cool IHP car mount and stand alone holder-DIY

    I thought that this post over at the mistic river forums truly deserved a looksy over here...This guy always does some cool stuff. He was inspired by the iPod's stand which costs $15, and he pretty much did it for nothing. I think the projects are very easy if one has the will to do this stuff...

    The perfect companion/jacket for all your gadget needs

    A while ago, someone over at the mIsticRiver forums had posted this link. It's a bunch of jacket/outerwear stuff which are of excellent design and functionality. I could tell you guys all about it, but that's what the links are for. All I'll say is this...with these jackets, gone are the days of...

    Losing significant SQ on KSC 35's because of design ?

    I'm wondering if anyone here has tried to mod their KSC 35's so that theyd get a tighter fit ? I really love them, and am pretty happy with their SQ, but I feel that because of how they hang so loosely on my ears, I"m losing a good deal of bass and overall depth. I notice this problem when I...

    Talk about inaccurate !

    I was planning on testing my IHP's battery life this weekend (actually still am), and so I figured I'd let the battery drain until the last bar was showing, then recharge. Well, due to certain circumstances, such as believing that the units battery was draining more quickly than it should have...

    My incomplete mini-review of the IHP-120

    Which was originally posted over at : http://misticriver.proboards24.com/index.cgi Let me just say in advance that this is by no means a full length review. Only when I've had and used the unit extensively, shall I do that...which I think is the only way to really review any product unless...

    Here's a link to the Iriver forums...A particular thread has me concerned about the 120 and I'd like to hear some of your thoughts on this. I'd try to get information from the Iriver forum people, but their details are sketchy at best... IHP-120 bugs (2 to mention) I'm very concerned...

    Comparing Beyer DT 231's and Sony V6's and Sure E2's...

    How do you guys think these cans stack up against each other ? I"m considering one of these as my next purchase and would like to know the thoughts on these. Of course I already know that the sure's will probebly offer the most isolation. Which of these is driven most easily and has the best...

    Just had a thought about the IHP 100 VS. 120..

    What are if any, besides the storage size, the differences between the IHP 100 and 120 ? I"m thinking that if they decide to release a 40 gig which is what alot of people really want, including myself..I'd rather just get the IHP 100 until that time. Now that the IHP 100 supports Ogg, and only...

    Saw the Karma @ Circuit City yesterday and ...

    It's not nearly as bulky as people are claiming. Granted, the salesman laughed in my face when I asked if they had any open display models ( "Haha..in NYC ? Are you kidding?" Yeah..i thought that was pretty stupid too) but looking throught the package, it looked tiny. I put my hand up next to...

    DIY cable shortening.....how easy/hard/dangerous is it ?

    I find that using my PX 200's with any portable clipped or strapped to my person, leaves way too much slack, and it annoys me so....I'd like to cut some of the length of the cable off, and solder the plug back on myself. Has anyone here done this successfully or should i just look for cans with...

    Speaker issues> Should I be concerned ...

    On occasion either of my current speakers goes out, forcing me to jack up the volume very high, very quickly, in order for the speaker(s) to pop back on. I'm fairly certain that this problem stems from the receiver (as I've been told before), but I want to make sure that this behavior isn't so...
