    Are there Shure imitations?

    I can't vouch for that seller, but 175 + 12 for shipping is a reasonable price. E4Cs went for 200 from some places when they first came out.

    Bought Etymotic er4p's, thinking of Shure e4's.

    I actually don't think the Shure e4s have that much more bass than the er4ps. They at least didn't have more than amped ER-4Ss. The x5s have a great equalizer too, I would mess around with that for a while. It doesn't sound like you've really listened to them that long either, or at all...

    Questions about the Shure Tri Flanges

    Pull your ear out away from your head, and then it should go right in. If that fails, do it but have your mouth open as well.

    SQ: Nano or Karma?

    The Karma has better sound quality, and mine lasted about 13 months before dying, with a healthy amount of abuse (being dropped onto pavement, coming along for jogs, bike rides, snowboarding, being sat on, etc).

    iaudio x5 20GB for $199 (?)

    Brand new 20 gig X5s cost about 255 dollars for resellers buying them in bulk. This is a scam. That or the seller has gone completely insane.

    Help needed - X5L, iPod, Gigabeat...?

    Yeah, you can set the options so that all music is selected, including everything in subfolders, and shuffle that.

    John Grado has agreed to an interview, I invite you to suggest some questions

    Has he tried C-Pads, and if so, what are his thoughts on them?

    X5 60GB in "near future"

    They're double platter and hence thicker, that's why.

    e4 vs. er6i

    I think in terms of sound alone the ER-4s series sounds better than the e4c series, which sounds slightly better than the er-6i series. The e4cs are actually very close to the 6is in terms of sound, at least for me. Slightly rolled off treble and slightly louder bass, but not very much of...

    I must have ears of tin!

    Well, none of those headphones are necessarily bad... listen to some V-600s and then remind yourself that people like them.

    er6 vs. er6i for ipod

    They are less neutral (but the er-6s are even more unneutral [is that a word?] when run out of a weakly powered source), yes, but due to the lack of visceral body-thumping bass that canalphones provide, I believe that the higher tuned upper frequencies are necessary to create that illusion of...

    iAudio X5 vs iRiver H320

    The X5 has much better build quality than the H320, and the general consensus (which I agree with) is that it sounds better as well. That's what matters, in my opinion.

    1st Canalphones: for small ear canals.

    I would use Ety ER-6is + the smallest Shure Ultra-Soft flex sleeve for the e3c/e4c/e5c series. Works like a charm, and you won't even notice they're in your ear.

    Unusually packaged music?

    The self-released Bandits of the Acoustic Revolution album was made out of cardboard and duct tape.

    grado sr60 wire twisting problem

    I don't think you actually got any pictures into your post, but I own 60s too and that happens if I put them on and off too many consecutive times without actually looking at the wires. Just rotate the right cup as many times as it takes to get it straight again.

    Sony NW-HD5 vs. iAudio X5L (20GB)

    Since your computer isn't too modern, get the X5. I'd recommend it anyway over the HD5, but even more for you, because SonicStage will take forever to load and annoy you to no end. Also, all you need is one driver and it'll work on 98.
