    Review by 'P.F. Jo' on item 'Etymotic Research HF5 Portable In-Ear Earphones'

    These phones are great, for their value, even at retail price these are quite good.   Though I do not have past exp. with other etymotics, I could sum these as very clear, tight bass but not lacking, unless the track you're playing is. the mids are a little emphasized, but it's not too...

    Is my audio equipment any good for headphones?

    Hi Hybrys,   Thanks a LOT for the input, that's exactly what I was asking, lots of people in this forum says that most of the hi-end phones would require dedicated headphone amp, and I was wondering if I could use the mixer for that, and from what I understand of your post, It is more than...

    Is my audio equipment any good for headphones?

    Hi,   No, I meant exactly what I wrote, XtremeMusic. Which IS a X-Fi Based PCI soundcard.   Check your facts.   But regardless, what I'm interested to understand is the mixer part.   Thanks.

    Sub$100 Multi purpose Headphones (Home-Studio)

    Hey,   Great, I'd like to read how do they impress you.   What's the diff between K240S to MKII?   ATM, the ATH-M50 are leading, because I read very good things on them and also in the freq charts on headroom they seem to even top the k240's.   Thanks.

    Entry level phones + Entry Leven pocket amp, or just phones?

    Erm, Thanks for the comment [above] but I've already decided to buy headphones only and no amp [for now] .. The only question remains is which phones, although you already know what the leading choices right now.. . Thanks.

    Entry level phones + Entry Leven pocket amp, or just phones?

    Hi, I'm trying to decide whether I like to combo a entry level pocket amp and an entry level headphones, or just buy headphones with the total sum of my budget. My three main desires from the headphones soundwise are: 1. "Drummy" Bass, Not muddy bass, or thumpy bass, frankly I dont like...

    Headphone Impedance Clarification

    Please do a search I've made a thread covering this issue a while ago - well actually I asked about impedance they answered. Short version is that impedance is the resistance of headphones, higher it is, more voltage is needed [ohms..] and LESS current [mW or was it mAs.. I forgot. I think...

    Portable player VS computer as a dedicated source

    Hmm.. Well I was mainly talking about the source [Line out, Not headphone jack] + some amp [or receiver for speakers and not headphones, Like I use right now] - an internal amplifier of a portable player is never really great..... Its obvious that the computer has better output compared to a...

    How much money ...

    20$+ is a good thing to have in your wallet, or sub100$ - Theres no need for anyone to really hold more than that either..... Generally, You could do fine with no money at your pocket [as long as you're driving in your own car and not dependent on public traffic such as bus or cabs] as long...

    the best 80-90 dollar IEM?

    after researching this myself, I've found these conclusions [Which are true for me at least] The Ety's has a very analytic sound, They're all about detail and compensate a lot for details, They have no warmth in their mids or bass. On the other hand the UM1 are supposed to have warmer mids...

    Flash Based, 8gb~10gb MP3 player advices

    Hey, My friend is looking for an idea for a new player.. He would like it to be Flash based only [not HDD], at least 8gb, it needs to be as small and as sturdy as possible [as its going to be mostly used in campings etc] - He doesn't care much for other functions other than MP3...

    skull candy or vmoda? ....also on a budget!

    I'll tell you why.. its no secret either IMO - the company making them seems to be advertisement oriented rather than sq oriented... It seems that what they are is more of a trend rather than a music accessory..... but this is all just my opinion, which might not reflect the reality.

    Shure SE210 /Weston UM1 sound signature?

    ZVM Doesnt support FLAC's so I decompress them to not lose their 'loseless' quality.. Well, The ety's doesn't have warm mids to my understanding, thats something I really like in a headphone, that - and crystal clear highs.. bass, as long as its present but tight is good for me.. So what...

    Shure SE210 /Weston UM1 sound signature?

    btw, How does this rig sounds? Creative ZVM [Flac uncompressed to Wav/ 320VBR]>PA2v2*>Westone UM1? *I'm considering to buy this along with another headphone to make the sound warmer without making bloated bass or compensating on the clean highs/mids. Thanks! -Jo
