    Klipsch Image X10 (Amazon)

    Has anyone bought the Klipsch Image X10 from Amazon recently? They are still on sale for $90. I believe sound is subjective and it probably wouldn't help me to ask. Does anyone know how durable the X10s are for home use? Do they seem worth the money?   My first and last expensive pairs of in...

    Grado cloth headphone cable?

    New guy here, go easy. I've just gotten myself some Grado 225i's, and so far I love the sound. But the design, the plastic, and most of all the cheap cable annoys me. I'm looking for a cloth (cotton sheathed) cable that would work with the Grados. If it were a 1-sided connection on these cans...

    On my visit to 32 Ohm Audio, and how my mind subsequently got blown.

    I live in Vancouver, so I drove south today to check out the store, which is in the Hawthorne district in Portland. I was initially a little underwhelmed; yes, they had a lot of headphones to demo, but it didn't seem like there were a lot of different brands, mainly Audio-Technicas and Grados...

    Headphone recommendations for metal with a HK 3490 amp

    Hi   I recently bought a Harman/Kardon 3490 amp, which I chose mainly because I had heard it had good headphone amplification too (on top of all the other reasons I had). And indeed it greatly enhanced the sound quality with my ancient Sennheiser HD595 phones. I'd like to buy better...
