My question is, what settings should I use so that I maintain the original quality of the audio and video while converting the file...

    Is listening to bright speakers or IEMs bad for your ears?

    If you find a certain IEM bright but continue to listen to it, is it bad for your ears? When I first got the Sony MDR-NC22, they were EXTREMELY bright. They would make me cringe.

    Sony XBA-3 right earpiece buzzing at certain frequencies

    Recently got a new XBA-3 from Amazon. The right earpiece buzzes at certain frequencies when the volume is loud. I think it has to do with the bass but I am not sure. What could it be? Anyone else have this?

    Is it bad to turn or twist the stereo mini plug when it is plugged into a device?

    Just wondering if it is bad to turn or twist the stereo mini plug when it is plugged into a device. Does it scratch it? Wear it out? What about the device? Does it cause some wear to it as well?

    Is it bad for the earphones when you use them at high volumes?

    I ordered the Sony XBA-3 and the latest iPod touch. I want to know if using the earphones at high volumes for extended periods is bad for them. I know it is bad for your ears, but I need to know if it also bad for the earphones.

    Klipsch Image X10 vs. Sony XBA-2

    Looking at the prices on Amazon, the two are close (price wise) with the XBA-2 being more expensive. How do the two earphones compare? Any feedback will be appreciated. They will be connected to an iPod touch.   By the way, what if I added the XBA-3 into the mix?

    Looking for the best sounding player

    My uncle has the first generation iPod touch and the sound quality is really bad, especially the bass. The bass sounds distorted and the overall sound of the player sounds "small" and not "full." If I connect my headphones (the same ones I use on that iPod touch) to my laptop the sound is MUCH...
