    Because life is to short to be listening to bad audio at the gym

    Hello all,   I've been living in a realm of medicority and sub-par audio for years, hoping that by buying higher end headphones and earbuds that I can relieve some of the strain of the dreaded ipod sound quality on my ears. I've purchased a large collection of ear buds and over ears from...

    Turbine Pro Warranty - Is it transferable?

    So, I'm contemplating selling off my MTPC to fund another purchase. They're a bit worn, but they were purchased from Amazon, so the "no questions asked"-1 time warranty is intact.   My question is, could the person I sell these to eventually use that warranty provided I give him the reciept...

    Can you throw some recommendations my way?

      Hello again. I’ve haven’t been in the market for headphones for a while, mainly because my wallet hates me, so I'm not up on the latest models, but I may start looking around again. I gave up on IEMs because they irritate my ear canals, but most of the time I have to wear closed-design...

    Hiphop IEM - Good Isolation - 120 Euro Budget

    Hey everyone,   I've recently bought a pair of Dr. Dre Tour IEM's because I liked the way they looked and were on sale. I like the sound but it just doesn't fit well and it doesn't isolate well either. I will be returning these and will be on the lookout for a new pair.  My budget is...

    Should I buy a Headroom Desktop for $850 for an HD650?

    Hi,   I've been listening to my Alessandro MS2's and Etymotic ER4P's for years, but finally have the financial means to try out some high end german headphones.  I briefly considered the HD800 but think I'll go with the HD650's.   Anyway, Is the headroom Desktop a good option for them...

    RE0's, still a king, or dethroned?

    So, i think it's been about two christmas's since i went on my headphone craze on Head-fi. I bought my Beyerdynamic DT-770 after trying some Monster Turbines (Uncomfortable for me, didn't wow me either) and really enjoy my DT-770. Then i had a trip coming up and needed some nice IEM's, so i went...

    My Westone 4 impressions

    I have put the W4 through its paces, and after the first round of extensive testing, here are my impressions.   My main reason for getting the W4 is to hopefully replace the SE535 and W3, since I find them too colored or fatiguing/bright without EQ. Ideally, I wanted a pair of IEM's that I...

    My Review of the Audio Technica ATH-ANC23

    Hey all,   As many of you know I am now working at Headphones.com.  One of my tasks is to review some of their headphones.  I wanted to post this thread to share with you all that I am flabbergasted (that's right I used the word "flabbergasted") by one of the headphones I have auditioned. ...

    Cans that cannot be heard from the outside

    I have a pair of SE530 IEM but I'm looking to get a pair of full size headphones. I love the sound of the 530's but am curious of the difference to full sized. I have around $700 to drop. I'll be using them in an office setting so the only requirement I have is that people around me should not...

    Yuin Pk3's still the best bang for the buck?

    I'm in the market, like so many others, for budget head/ear/IEMs. Based on what I've read here, I'm split between the Pk3's, pl30's, and brainwavez's proalpha and m1's. Meeelectronics m6 are also an option, but I dont like the over the ear feature, so maybe m9's instead. I'm curious to know if...

    Hip-Hop Bass Heavy Monitoring Earphones?

    Hey,   So today I received my Westone UM3x-RC and I already didn't like the sound signature the first time I put them in. Compared to the amount of bass I am used to for HipHop related genres, this one's bass sounded so tiny! So I repacked them and put them for sale on eBay.   Before I...

    HF-5 v. DBA-02

    Largely for budget reasons I'm inclined to buy Ety HF-5s rather than what I had my eyes on, DBA-02s.  And, by the way, the price of DBA-02s just went up to $180 on ebay. Both seem to be good for classical, which is my primary requirement.   Question: what precisely would I be sacrificing by...

    I am interested in an iem, with sound like the TF10, but with more bass.

    I recently discovered the TF10s and love the sound from them, but I would like more bass.  Is there any balanced driver iem that has a similar sound signature, but the sub-bass close to that of the Atrios?  I am considering full custom as well as universal. As it is, I can eq the TF10s to have...

    RE0's Broken... How should I fix them?

    I recently purchased some Head Direct RE0's from amazon, and they were shipped on 4/19/10. I have been using them a fair amount, left them in their case overnight, and I just went to take them out for some listening, and this had happened:     It is a clean break, but does anyone know...

    Looking for the UE700 flavor. Title has to be long to attract attention!

    Hello all   I've been missing my UE700s ever since they broke...for the second time. (nay for their durability!). And I need help picking out something similar in sound, but maybe from a different company that has better durability.   Truth is I vastly prefer the UE700s over all other...

    Klipsch image s5i music balanced vocals not so sure

    Hi, I purchased klipsch image s5i around a month back and for the time being i was blown by the sound quality as these were mine first quality earphones. Anyways on close inspection i found out that when listening songs it appears that the sound is not centred i.e the vocals seem to be more...

    Multiarmature IEM Drivability ?

    I've found out that multiarmature IEMs have a nonlinear impedance that tends to trigger impedance bridging issues with the amp that drives them and it might lead to some frequency response dips and humps that can be really audible and can keep the iem from performing to its maximum capability...

    Review: Got Wood? Thinksound TS02, Woodees Blues, Fischer Daleth, Skullcandy Holua, Xears TD-III

        The wooden-housing segment of the IEM market has been expanding rapidly over the past couple of years. Ignoring most of the field, my first Got Wood? review pitted Woodees’ original IESW101B model against Thinksound’s first release, the TS01. I found the two to be worthy competition not...
