    TF10.... and now what next?

    Owned the triple fi for a year, and I recently lost them. I was so pissed I was out of the head-fi community for a while but not I really can't stand average 10 dollar earphones anymore, I'm back to head-fi now :)   My first thought was to get an upgrade from TF10. I have done my research...

Long story) and I've been really happy with the the clarity and the sound signature in general I guess. I tried out a universal pair of JH16 Pros at Jaben Audio and was blown away by...

    If the PS500 was an IEM it would sound like...?

    After trying both the UE900 and Shure SE535 I'm yet to be satisfied searching for a fun universal IEM. The PS500 has a big fun factor, great in rendering vocals ( I use reversed bowls) and in an IEM that is what I want. Balance is for quite listening time, energy and fun factor is where it is at...

    Need In-Ear Recommendation:

    Greetings All,   First time poster here, but I've read through a number of threads regarding various IEM's.  Nevertheless, I'm hopeful some head-fi 'experts' can chime in and make a recommendation for me.   Our church worship team is about to move to Aviom's and we're all purchasing our...

    Hi everyone!   I have been using my ES10 / ES535 for commute with my Iphone 6 for a while now and have always wanted to experiment adding an external amp to see if there would be a significant improvement in sound quality.
