    Being single sucks...

    Holy crap. I read your post and had to do a double take to see if I posted it. Just got out of my 3.5 yr relationship for EXACTLY the reasons you stated. However, it took me a bit more than 12 months to get out... And when I read your Scorching, soul-withering hell line, I was thinking "I...

    Boston Acoustic E-50's

    Just to update- I demoed and purchased a used pair of these last night. Take my impressions below with a grain of salt because I am to complete speaker novice. I know what I like to hear from IEM's and full sized cans, but I am not speaker experienced enough to perfectly describe what I...

    Boston Acoustic E-50's

    Anyone have any experience or opinions on these? ( Boston Acoustic E-50's ) There is not much info/many reviews online.... I can get a set of 2 for $300 and I am considering these instead of the AV123 525T's I was looking at. Any input/opinions welcome! Thanks in advance!

    sleeping with custom IEMs?

    I regularly sleep wearing my westone es3x's - To me, they are far more comfortable than any universals I ever tried to fall asleep listening to purely because they lay so flat in your ear. I sleep on my side which normally causes pressure on one side and not the other which distorts the...

    About to buy- first set of nice speakers

    Understood- thanks for the clarification and input. I will have a fair amount of tweaking capability due to my projected set-up, and if they are too bassy, I can deal with it for the 9 months or so that I am in the room. I would rather have too much than too litte as I think that affords me...

    About to buy- first set of nice speakers

    One more quick question - Here is what I am planning on getting- The only question/concern I have: "Is it going to be a pleasing set-up if I buy just the pair of floorstanders or do I NEED monitors + sub?" I like the idea that I...

    About to buy- first set of nice speakers

    Wow- thanks for all the good advice- You have convinced me to do more in-depth research on a deal that I thought was a grand slam. Thanks- you may have just saved me $350 in disappointment (not a trivial sum to me right now!) This almost makes up for the $800 this site stole from my bank...

    Replacing IEMs, with a twist?

    Well this is easy - if you can afford the Triple Fi's, there is no reason to look at the others (IMO). From my limited listen (~30min on the tripFi) they are far and away better than the SuperFi 5's. (never heard the 3's or the UE700's, but I am going to assume, just based on price that they...

    Emmeline "The Shadow"

    Yep - I told myself that when I bought my ES3x, that was my last audio purchase for a year. HA - right. I am definitely getting in on the first order of these guys. Ray - looks awesome, please keep up the good work (and please release the shadow quickly and at an affordable price! )...

    Isolating IEMs or closed cans for portable metal listening

    I only really know IEMs so I don't have anything worthwhile to say about closed headphones. I would recommend looking into Westone UM2's($180?) or Phonak PFE's ($100). I have owned both and they were very pleasing for metal!

    Worst headphones you've ever heard? / Low-fi experiences?

    What do you mean when you say they are both "BA" IEMs?

    Major problems choosing the right IEM around 100 bucks

    Sounds like you and I have similar taste in music - Now while the MRSP of these aren't quite inside your budget, you can certainly find them for ~$120 new, under $100 used. I would heartily recommend the Audeo PFE. They are incredibly comfortable, GREAT sound and range (sounds great with...

    UM3X, SE530, TF10 or any suggestion? A Trance, Techno, and Rock listener

    Quote: Originally Posted by Scott_Tarlow IF you can get a fit with them, I think they are tough to beat, but I would also read up on the IE8, as I have heard them are very nice as well. For the price, it seems like the IE8's are hard to beat. Great bass, slightly recessed...

    Westone ES3X Appreciation Thread

    I am definitely looking into the mustang, thanks! I would kinda prefer to build something myself - I am just wondering if a mini3 would be worthwhile?

    Getting your eam impressions! How did you do it? Open Mouth? Closed Mouth? or Chewing Gumds?

    I also had mine done with a bite block - I do not think it was quite one inch, probably 1/2 - 3/4". Will let you know how they turn out once the ES3X arrive!

    Custom IEM's need amps?

    Anyone have more reccomendations for me? I feel myself leaning towards the C3's, but my mind if far from made up!

    NuForce NE-7m's get a lot of praise: there is a thread here that compares them quite favorably to a lot of $150+ IEMS
