    How loud is too loud...

    I am really enjoying my Grado SR60's and listening to some tool. When I listen to heavier music like Tool, I like it loud. I'm just not really sure how loud is too loud, what is a comfortable volume level and how do you test? I don't want to damage my ears, but I really like to here it...

    Westone UMPro50 Stage Monitor

    Is there REALLY 2 treble drivers in this IEM?  Maybe they forgot one?   No, just kidding but I am just coming off the W50 to the Pro50 series stage monitor and both share the distinct feature of being quite warm.  Let me say up front that I enjoy the Pro50 quite a bit more.  While the bass is...

    The Devil is in the Details: JVC's New IEM Shirt Clip

    Courtesy of a fellow head-fier, I recently got my hands on a set of the new (2nd-gen) JVC HA-FX67 Aircushions. Like the old HA-FX66, the earphones themselves are nothing special in any area except comfort. However, one thing JVC added to the package is a shirt clip... and what a shirt clip it...

    On-the-go headphones for classical lover?

    Hi there,   My Shure SE530s are no more and so I'm thinking of a change of direction. I'm considering over the ear headphones for my next pair of travel out-and-about cans. I listen to a lot of symphonies so I prefer a neutral and organic, tending to warm, signature that has a wide and open...

    Jaybird Bluebuds -- SQ in Android vs Iphone

    Just got a pair of bluebuds.  Paired with my Droid Maxx (which sounds pretty decent with my shure SE530) and sound was mediocre.  Paired with an iPhone 4 (which sounds about the same as Droid with SE530) and the bluebuds sounded much better - not close to SE530 but very listenable.  Anybody have...

    Increasing the sound value of iems.

    I hope this doesn’t hurt sales for headphone makers. I just want to help out the community with my findings.   Now many iems owe their sound mostly to how they are tuned and very little to how they are built acoustically. In other words, many iems have been equalized beforehand.  Knowing this...
