    Some Musical Musings, RE262, SM3, W4 comparisons and impressions

    So a fellow Head-fier PM'd me asking me to compare the RE262 and W4 and I got a little carried away in my response and it turned out to be very long (as well as me including the SM3 in the response). I felt it'd be good to share my thoughts regarding these 3 IEMs with the rest of the Head-fi...

    Prospecting Audiophile

    I've always been the guy who listened to a lot of music, but it never occurred to me to buy high quality equipment to do it. That is until last week when I decided to buy some headphones to insulate me from the noise of my university.   I have to thank the forum because it prevented me...

    Shure 535's lacking bass... better suggestion?

    Hello,   I just received the Shure 535's today.  It sounds great in terms of clarity, and midrange voice comes thru very easily.  I'm quite dissappointed in the warmth, and the bass response though.  I've tried all the sleeves, and found the ones that fits best, but still it doesn't sound to...

    If you could keep only one IEM, which one would it be?

    HI! If you could only keep one single IEM/headphone of your whole collection, which one would you keep, and why?   Personally, from the phones I own at the moment (SM3, RE-252, IE8, Radiopaq Jazz, HD-555)  I think I would keep the SM3, because they offer the best balance between isolation...

    Comply tips sound Awful on TF10?

    Hey guys,   So I got my UE TripleFi 10s for my birthday, and I'm loving them.   Medium silicone tips sound brilliant, even though they don't create the best seal. The small tips fall out for me, the large silicone tips fit a fair amount better than the medium ones, however I feel that...
