    What do you call this component in the headphone?

    Would I be able to replace the driver and if so, any recommendations on where to get one or approximately how much it will cost, or is it unsalvageable?

    What do you call this component in the headphone?

    Tried to fix headphone because I couldn't hear sound from one side (no sound) and seemed to lose soundstage (if that's what it's called). The following is a component inside my ATH-AD700 headphone--what's the name of the part where the soldering and the wires go on? I want to replace it if I...

    Audio-Technica ATH-M50x best of its price? Significant upgrade to Audio-Technica AD700?

    I listen to primarily mainstream music and classical (not entirely sure the features I should be looking for). Either way, since it is for computer use, it should be general purpose and realistic). I heard that the M50X sounds better and is definitely more comfortable than M50. I was actually...

    Are wearing headphones/earphones for the majority of the day (8+ hours, almost non-stop) bad for your health?

    Are wearing headphones/earphones for the majority of the day (68+ hours, almost non-stop)  on close to a daily basis in any way bad for your health assuming volume is average? Just wondering.

    Audio-Technica ATH-M50x best of its price? Significant upgrade to Audio-Technica AD700?

    I own Audio-Technica AD700 and now, I'm having issues with the left sound working only when the cable is tilted a certain way (cat damaged cable). Also, sound leakage is a bit of a problem. Came across ATH-M50x + an audio recorder of ~$80 value for $144 after rebate, obviously a good deal. I...

    HiFiMan RE262 vs. HiFiMan RE-400 Waterline

    My previous IEMs were all mainstream budget earphones, so I never had the need for an amp (nor do I know what it does exactly other than obviously improving the sound experience). I googled images of IEM amps and it seems like amps aren't intended for outside purposes? Like commuting on a bus or...

    HiFiMan RE262 vs. HiFiMan RE-400 Waterline

    I'm a college student looking for an earphone I can use for everything--from many hours of music and movies to hundreds of Youtube videos and gaming. I can only be more specific on the type of music I listen to, so I will give more details on that--I listen to classical music, pop music...

    Best IEM for ~$100? Here is what I need:

    I have narrowed down to HiFiMan RE262, VSonic GR07, and HiFiMan RE-400 Waterline, really would like more responses regarding these 3 IEMs. I chose them solely because they provided the best sound/$ ratio. Are all 3 suitable for my needs?

    Best IEM for ~$100? Here is what I need:

    For my previous IEM, the right side just began to stop working unless I twist the cable at a certain way and hold it there. Eventually, both sides stopped working regardless of what I did. I'll look into your recommendations.   One question though--a reason why I didn't look into the guide...

    Best IEM for ~$100? Here is what I need:

    Any more recommendations? (Or any experiences with the ones recommended above)? It's very hard to research for IEMs because there's just so many of them and reviews are so subjective and often bias.

    Thanks for the recommendations, I will definitely look them up as soon as I get home. The RE-400 was recommended to me a while ago too, forgot to check them out.

    Best IEM for ~$100? Here is what I need:

    I am on my computer for the majority of the day--at least 10 hours. I currently use the ATH-AD700 headphones all day long.   - I watch movies and tons of Youtube videos as well as listen to a wide variety of music (though nothing too extreme--mostly classical, pop, alternative music, etc.)...

    Will a smartphone like a Samsung Galaxy S3 sound as good as an iPod Touch?

    Will a smartphone like a Samsung Galaxy S3 sound as good as an iPod Touch? I was thinking of getting the smartphone, but I don't know if it will be a complete replacement if it doesn't sound as good as the iPod Touch. Thoughts? I wouldn't mind carrying both if the iPod Touch sounds better.  ...

    Have FLAC files, best program to convert to AAC files?

    I have a bunch of FLAC files, but my iPod Touch can't read them. I am looking for the best application to convert FLAC files to file formats such as AAC, MP3, and Apple Lossless. From what I know, two encoded 320kbps of the same file may have different sound quality if they are encoded (I'm not...

    Klipch Image x10 ($85), HiFiMan Re-262($120) or...?

    Thanks for the thread. I read so many praises for the RE0, but the sound is rated significantly below R-50's. I understand the description of the sound of the RE0, but don't really quite get the R-50's description. How do they both compare? And would the average music lover be disappointed with...

    Klipch Image x10 ($85), HiFiMan Re-262($120) or...?

    I was considering HiFiMan RE-0 also, but a quick Google search also shows durability problems. Klipsch x10 has durability problems as well. They have highly favorable reviews, but I commute a lot and I will be taking the IEM everywhere with me and plugging in and out, etc.

     My specific needs:   - Listen to classical music (and music where it's all about instruments), alternative rock, pop music, and other mainstream music. Nothing too hardcore for my ears that would make it bleed or hurt.   - Can block outside noises decently (I don't know if...

    What is the best IEM available for ~$100? I plan to use these for ~12 hours a day.

    Quote: I did a quick Google search and read that while it has phenomenal details, the build quality is really bad. Where was the deal for $49 from? I can't find it on Google yet.
