    Opinions on Custom IEMs vs Universal IEMs

    I owned a pair of JH13 Pros a few years ago. It took a couple tries to get the seal perfect on one ear. In the end I decided to stick with universal IEMs for portable because I like to try out different ones in the lower-middle price range for fun. It is just a hassle to try out a bunch of...

    Best gaming headset under $200

    The reviews I read at the time I bought a pair of AD700 claims that it is better than AD700x for games. I originally wanted the AD700x because the color scheme was very nice compared to the AD700, but the AD700 does exactly as advertised. Awesome for competitive games, not good for much else...

    HiFiman RE 400 vs Massdrop HiFiman RE 00

    All my listening impressions are based on the Fiio X3 first generation as source.  For $35 the RE-00 has pretty good sound.  They are a little south of neutral on bass, but have great mids and non-fatiguing highs.  They only come with two pairs of tips and no other accessories though, unless...

    MassDrop x Hifiman RE00: Reincarnation of the Legend - Impression and Discussion

    I got my RE-00 on Friday.  I never owned the original, but my impression of the RE-00 is really favorable so far.  I think that "neutral with a touch of richness" describes well what I heard so far.  I think they are definitely worth the small asking price.  I would also point out that they only...

    HiFiman RE 400 vs Massdrop HiFiman RE 00

    I just got my RE-00 from Massdrop on Friday.  I assume that information about the Massdrop RE-00 will start rolling in now that they have finally shipped.  I also have the RE-400.  I will try to give them both some head-time and see what I can tell you.

    The New iRiver/Astell & Kern AK100: A High-End DAP

    That is normal.  It has to rebuild the entire internal db every time any file is added or removed.  I doubt any existing issues will be addressed as iriver has moved on to the newer devices.

    Audeze LCD-2 Impressions Thread

    That one is the original rev 1 I think.  I would expect it to sound about the same as a rev 1 with the modern grills, but I've never had a listen to any of the rev 1s.

    Audeze LCD-2 Impressions Thread

    I could be wrong, but I am fairly certain that those L/R grills were changed to the current grills sometime during the rev 1 driver's lifespan.  To my knowledge there were no driver changes before rev 1.  I can't find the pair you mentioned on ebay.  I googled LCD-1 to see if it looked anything...

    Audeze LCD-2 Impressions Thread

    I believe he was comparing to HA160DS, which is the HA160D minus the pre-amp and with a different volume control. Same amp and DAC sections as HA160D.

    Audeze LCD-2 Impressions Thread

    This one is a tough call.  The Burson can be had for about that same price or probably less used.  It is worth noting that the Burson's output power is pretty low, but I had an HA160D for about a year with pre-fazor LCD2.2 and I found it to sound very good.  If it was me I would go with the...

    Creative Sound Blaster new series Z, Zx & ZxR

    I actually just use the default settings myself.  I tried tweaking some things around, but for me it sounds fine with the default settings.

    The New iRiver/Astell & Kern AK100: A High-End DAP

    Just go into "all songs " and select any song when that happens.  You will get a new random playlist.  The same old one may come back after restarting the device though.

    Creative Sound Blaster new series Z, Zx & ZxR

    I actually plan to do something similar and I think that you need to check "play stereo mix to optical out" under Advanced Features tab on the SB control panel.  I am not sure if you should have windows sound settings to output through SPDIF or speakers.  I think if you have it set to 5.1...

    Denon D2000/D5000, MD2000/MD5000 Thread!

    I am pretty sure the copper inside the stock D2k cable is just OFC.  I read this somewhere before, but not sure where.

    Any Sim Racing Fans?

    I just joined the sim racing club last week.  I picked up a used G25 locally and tried it with Assetto Corsa.  All I can say is WOW.  I have played GT5 a lot with the regular PS3 controller, but it simply didn't compare to just running a practice lap on 1966 Monza (no chicanes!) in a Zonda R. ...

    Denon D2000/D5000, MD2000/MD5000 Thread!

    Hey!   I can't answer all your questions, but I will do what I can:   1) You can do this and it should be fine.  The stock cable is just really thin OFC. 2) Stock pads can be found here: http://www.lawtonaudio.com/page13.html 3) I am fairly certain that the padding strap from the Beyer pro...

    The New iRiver/Astell & Kern AK100: A High-End DAP

    That sounds a lot like what I find to happen with mine.  It plays the same list of of songs each morning when I boot it up.  This is resolved when I just go into all songs and play any song to break the cycle.  I suspect that this has something to do with the way they create the library index as...

    I bet you could superglue the white ring back together without any problems.  Also, you might try contacting Mark Lawton to see if he has any replacements.

    InEarZ (Fisher Hearing) Custom Remold Owner's Thread

    My JH13 and ear molds were delivered to their office Monday.  Anyone know what the typical turn-around time currently is?   Also, it looks like this is the right place to get JH Audio CIEMs remolded.  Lots of people doing JH13 and JH16.  Glad I sent it to the right place!

    Opinions on Custom IEMs vs Universal IEMs

    Phone calls are rare, but putting in my IEMs somehow magically summons people to come to my desk.  This is something I had not heard before.  Worth taking into consideration.   How about isolation on a plane?  Are most universals good in this regard?  I know the shape of the IEM plays a role...

    Opinions on Custom IEMs vs Universal IEMs

    Hi everyone.   I've been considering upgrading my IEMs recently since I spend so much time at work with them.  I have been wondering if it is worth the money to go for custom IEMs.  I have Westone 3 and I am considering two IEMs that are about the same price where one is a higher model...

    [LIST][OPINION] Amp recommendations for Fostex/Denon Headphones.

    I always listened to my old LA2000 with a Burson HA-160D.  I think they are a pretty good deal at their current used prices, but of course they have been replaced with better models.   As for the pads, I had a paid of Lawton Audio angle pads and I found them to be very pleasant.  The way they...

    Roll Call: Who's building, built, or thinking of building a beta22?

    It is usually said that if you plug/unplug your TRS quickly then you will probably be ok.  I didn't take any chances and always powered down if I was going to switch out the headphones though.

    Roll Call: Who's building, built, or thinking of building a beta22?

    That is a really well planned and executed build!  Love it.
