    Superlux HD681 Lifespan?

    I've been reading a lot on these because their a headphone I was looking at grabbing. I see an issue of people on Amazon saying they've only lasted a month or not even a few months. Can anyone with experience tell me how long they've had theirs and their experience with the can themselves? I...

    [Question]What are the best/newest/cheapest?

    Hi, I'm approaching this to see what options I have for Over Ear Headphones. I had my AudioTechnica ATH-M50 for well over 11 Years, recently they just broke. I wanted to see from everyone around what the best pairs of Over Ear Headphones are right now. In the past, I always saw a ton of...

    Chinese / Asian Brand IEM Info Thread

    Been listening to the KZ ZST as I've finally gotten around to them Is it just me or do the highs on the ZST seem a bit over pronounced? I noticed that at some higher volumes the cymbals are pretty loud. Maybe the dynamic driver needs some break in time so it can flex a bit but so far, sheesh...

    Chinese / Asian Brand IEM Info Thread

    Funny enough, goes against what I'm asking for, but with the ZST, & ZS3 the ZS3 has become my go to IEM currently.

    I haven't yet, I have them on the chopping block ready to purchase at any time now. Instead right now I'm looking at the Auglamour R8, maybe gonna see about these unless I hear about something bright out of nowhere.

    Well! Nope haven't seen these. I generally prefer the wrap around the ear detachable cable IEMs.

    Chinese / Asian Brand IEM Info Thread

    Thanks to all you nuts I've bought myself the KZ ZS3, & KZ ZST so far. Question for you all though. I'm looking for a brighter sounding, maybe even tinny sound. Is there an IEM with detachable cables and the like that has this sorta signature on Amazon for around the $25 mark you'd recommend?

    Chinese / Asian Brand IEM Info Thread

    If you'd like I'll give you my take on an IEM mentioned in here so far! I've recently been spending a bit of time with the $16 KZ ZS3 They've slowly made their way into my heart as one of the most comfy, & warm IEMs I've purchased. They have to be the best $16 I've spent in a long time. Why...

    I personally have to agree with this. I don't generally like any silicon tips as they just become a pain over time, though the Starline tips they offered in varying sizes were worth! They're comfortable for sure, like you said yourself, over a small break in period they get very comfy.

    How long do headphones usually last?

    Yep to you two! I'd say with IEMs it takes a lot of true caring for them, & really watching what you're doing. Like I originally said though, magnets shouldn't give out too easily, & secondly most electronics shouldn't be kept in hot conditions in general.

    How long do headphones usually last?

    Hard to say in general as to of how long things last. I don't always agree with the whole 'the driver goes bad', I think a lot of this argument has to do with how you use the volume for one. My experiences. AudioTechnica ATH-IM50 I've owned going on about three years now, the cable has gone...

    Earbuds Going Bad[Thoughts/Views]

    So as I've delved more into audio and proceeded to try out more of the market out In-Ears to Earbuds, Earbuds have really posed a question to me, Earbuds like the VE Monk, & others. Can Earbuds truly last you as long as headphones? I've always heard the old folk tales of people having...

    Review of Audio Technica ATH-IM01, ATH-IM02, ATH-IM03, ATH-IM04, ATH-IM50, & ATH-IM70

    Nope, for some reason Balanced Armature Drivers even ones with a bit lower impedance have to be cranked a bit higher. Well, the ATH Series to be fair has to be at least 85-90% to get a full sound. Or at least a sound that is reasonable listening. The IM70, & IM50 being Symphonic Drivers are...

    VSonic VSD5 Impressions Thread. VSonic's answer to Sony's EX1000???

    Just started hearing more about the VSD5. Demoed the VSD3S for a couple of hours. I currently use the ATH-IM50, & MEElectronics M6 Pros, how do they compare to either of the two, and compared to the M6, would they be an upgrade, or? I've heard they have a slightly similar sound signature.

    Review of Audio Technica ATH-IM01, ATH-IM02, ATH-IM03, ATH-IM04, ATH-IM50, & ATH-IM70

    Agreed, I loved Player Pro for the longest time, my issue being with Player Pro was the audio quality wasn't accurate. So showed some testing done too. Another issue was that I use a lot of ALAC, & FLAC, and PowerAmp reads the files better, and allows you to tag, while Player Pro rejects doing...

    Nice, another fan of MEElectronics work! Really hoping that sometime in the future we'll get to see a version of the A151 with detachable cables.

    Reply to review by 'whitemass' on item 'Shure SE215'

    I thought I had seen the whole of SE215 reviews, and then you came along. I see Soundstage as being squished in these, and I definitely disagree with them being fun sounding, as more fun sounding things are more musical. The SE215 has a relaxed sound signature, as commonly said by others, it's...

    Reply to review by 'whitemass' on item 'Audio Technica ATH-IM02 balanced amature inner earphone'

    Pretty accurate, one of the more accurate reviews I've heard of the IM series. I feel your opinion on bass effect is to be argued. I've heard the device, and heard from others, others saying that they're very tinny sounding, lack a lot of bass, or it's almost similar to listening to something...

    Hah, you seem to be shocked! The band is from the 90s'. They have a great discography, and actually fit into a vein called Space Rock.

    Been looking at these really heavily. Are they worth getting for house, on the go, and active lifestyle usage? I'm currently using the ATH-IM50, and wanna try these to introduce myself to a Brighter Sound.
