    About these crazy new-ish Apple earpods

    I have a maddening love/hate relationship with these things. As ear-buds of course they have zero isolation-which is to be expected, and really doesn't work for living in NYC, yet when it's quiet, i really like them. I can hear details that I can't hear otherwise (even with the Etymotic...

    Looking for a pair of IEMs, $50-$150 range - need advice, the variety is a bit overwhelming.

    I have tried to do my fair share of research but in the end I would much rather decide based on people's opinion than my own limited understanding.    Now while I understand that some headphones sound better on different types of music and source material, there is also a subjective "sound...

    Please help - my unsuccessful journey so far in selecting new IEMs

    Hi all,   I've spend the past week researching the heck out of IEMs to try to find a replacement for my Brainwavz M2's. They still work, but my wife needs 'new' ones so I'm taking the opportunity to pass those on to her while getting something new. Just for context, I also have a pair of...

    Best IEM setup while working in a factory??

    I have several IEM's like the Brainwaves M1 and M2 but where i work (metal factory) we are only allowed to have 1 ear bud in at all times. What would be the best setup to get the best sound quality. I am allowed to have 1 ear bud in and 1 earplug in so maybe a noise cancellation foam tip or new...

    budget basshead IEM recommendations

    (sort of a cross-post)   Hey guys. I was wondering which IEM you would recommend to someone who loves bass (used to listening to 12" subwoofers in my car) and listens to rock, electronic, and hip-hop. Basically a fun-sounding IEM for mainly gym use. I won't be using an amp and prefer to stay...

    My IEM Problem...six pairs in my hands now, and feel just "eh" about all of them. Mini-reviews on each inside.

    So, I've been looking for a pair of IEMs for a while...actually a few pairs, but that's beside the point. I've gone through a few of these things and the best I've thought about any of them is "hey, this isn't bad" which is not exactly a glowing endorsement. Anyway, I thought y'all folks might...

    Recommendation for headphones <150usd. Will dt990 pro work for me?

    I have a koss ur40. While I really like the wide and open feel, I am always finding that it is lacking something.   Firstly, it lacks bass and the sound is not full, as if there isn't much weight. When the volume is increased, it simply get loud, without the weight. The sound also feels very...

    Most musically satisfying universal IEM ?????

    So, it being the Holiday season I've got the buy-bug again, and decided I'd focus on upper-tier performance iems, that will "leave me alone iwth the music".  I've liked mostly single driver units, mostly dynamics, and am looking for something universal (not custom) that will really make me happy...

    How IEM characteristics are measured?

    Hi, I am new to this forum and to the audiophile world. I am planning to buy an IEM for my daily use, so I was browsing through the IEM reviews. I came across some terms like recessed mids, larger soundstage, darker, brighter etc. How are these measured? In may case, when I listen to a new...

    $40 Brainwavz M2 now or Future MP4 Nation Sale

    Brainwavz M2 is now on sale for $40, I am thinking of buying it. I have read a lot of reviews about it. The sound signature seems like something I could enjoy, rumbling but not overpowering bass and mids, that are detailed and are not very recessed, but the only thing that is keeping me back is...

    Hi, my first post here. Had trouble registering, but finally did. Okay, before coming to the point, let's say this about me, I know some things about P.C, Mobiles and some other stuffs but when it's an audio product I don't know what to look for, so in other words you can call me an amateur, or...

    Dear nonpro audiophiles, need your help to choose armature.

    I decide to buy armature for my ipod 4g. I own Brainwavz M2, but sound is very deep and highs are not clear too.(I dont know how to describe it). Meanwhile, Senheiser IE 4 sounds better: cleaner and closer, but only at Huawei (smartphone). On ipod it sounds a bit better that M2. I chose...

    Durable IEMs for less than 100$

    Hi there, I am looking for some durable iems for 70-100$. I have been looking into Klipsch image x10's but I don't know if they are durable enough, but they seem like a good choice for the price range. I've had the ue500's and I really liked their sound but the right driver stopped...

    Anyone have any experience buying things from them? I ordered some IEM on April 29th. They shipped on May 3rd and a tracking number still hasn't popped up. Does anyone have a phone number??

    Oldish (<$100) IEM for clear vocals, good bass: Etymotic Hf5 / Klipsch S4 / Brainwavz M2 / Sunrise SW-Xcape.

    I would like very much to pay less than $100 = that's why I need oldish. If it just came out and it's $100, I doubt I'm going to pay under $100 easily. Something within the last 3 years would be nice.   I've never owned anything "high-end," but I appreciate definition: I spent a week...

    CX500 VS Brainwavz M2

    My original pair of (non-counterfeit) cx500's gave out, after just four months of ownership... I was satisfied with them, but always open to a different IEM. I need a new set of IEM's without breaking around 60$. I'm pretty much tied between these two IEM's, although I'm always open to different...
