    Where is the distortion coming from?

    Hi everyone, After sifting through tons of info on head-fi (thank you) and the rest of the net, I finally purchased my shure SE215's. I'm extremely happy with the buy, except I came across a song where the left earphone distorts with the treble. I then switched the cables, so the left cable...

    Quick opinion needed on Monster Turbine High Performance In-Ear Speakers

    I have some coupon from some website with which I am getting this for $35 approx. I am quite novice in headphones.   1. Does it sound better than Klipsch S4? 2. Please comment on sound quality - bass, treble, mids and also sounstage.   Sorry if my questions did not make any sense.

    Today I was on our school bus going to a football game, and my friend asked to try on my monoprice 8320's, ho said that his 20 dollar ifrogz toxic iem's were better, because they didn't have a high pitched noise like mine did, I tried his on to see what he was talking about, and his had almost...

    I need to buy 2 pairs of earbuds for under 35 bucks?

    Head-fi has never let me down before, and I'm in a little bit of a pickle here.   For earbuds I've been using skullcandy titans I got at Marshalls for $12 (normally $40), but recently one of the earbuds literally snapped in half while in my pocket and I've just been just using them with...

    Mod: increasing the depth of the earpads, does it change the sound?

    i was wondering if adding cardboard or plastic tubing inside the earpads to increase the depth of the earpads changes the sound quality?? (this is usually done to full-size to prevent discomfort of when your ear touches the drivers)       credits to lxxl     personally i don't know...

    Should I get an IEM or a full-sized can?

    Hello Head-Fi'ers. It's come to my attention that I may not actually be looking in the correct section for my 'perfect' headphones. In other words, IEM vs Full-sized I've went through a few cans that I initially liked, but after a little bit of listening, I feel have lost their luster...

    Are amazon's Monoprice 108323 the same that Monoprice 8323?

    Well, might sound like a very dumb question but I'm thinking of getting them because of the price and the great reviews and I've been cheated tons of times with fake articles...  Also, for someone who lives out of the States, how does amazon's free shipping service work? Is it free all around...

    Good workout headphones for under $20

    The title says most of it.  I don't really care what type of headphones they are, just as long as they can be driven from an ipod.  I'm looking for a pair with reasonable comfort and one that will not slip during the middle of a set and sprints.  I'd also prefer one that emphasizes bass.  I did...

    Want to recable Monoprice 8320's with volume control - need a donor set

    I've got a pair of Monoprice 8320 headphones that the cabling is starting to fail- it's falling off of the earbuds.

    JVC Riptidz IEM an $8 gem

    A few months ago I bought the JVC HAFX67 Air Cushion IEM since it was so highly recommended here. I think it is okay, but not great as many claim. A few weeks ago I bought the JVC Riptidz. Imo the $8 Riptidz sounds better than the HAFX67 which is more than double the price. The Riptidz has  11mm...
