    Wow! The Final Audio Design FI-DC1601SB (also known as "Don't go to Yodobashi" lol)

    So if you've seen some of my other posts, I'm here in Tokyo on vacation and was going to audition the Ortofon e-Q7 if I could among others. I like the IE8 I use with my Sony NW-X1060/BI, but they aren't the most comfortable IEMs. I did the turning upside down thing and switched the cable sides...

    MDR-EX700LP or RE-262

    My current go to buds are the RE-0 and HF-5.   In the near future I'm thinking of going to the RE-262.  A local electrons shop has the MDR-EX700LP for $149.00 cdn. (reg $249) I understand they have a 6 db sibilance which I think I can deal with.  Is their accuracy in line with of Hifimans...

    Need advice please. First serious purchase of IEMs

    Hello there head-fi'ers.   I've been reading these forums for quite a while now, checking the different threads, especially the multi iem shootout one. As you can probably guess I'm completely baffled by how complex sound is and how much there is to know. I'm posting this thread because I...

    Moisture and BA/Dynamic driver IEMs?

    Not sure if this has come up before (a quick google search suggests it hasn't, but maybe I wasn't searching for the right thing) Does anyone have any specific details about how moisture affects (degrades?) IEM drivers. I'm particularly interested in BA drivers (e.g. using them on wet days, or...

    [kiteki review] - Hifiman RE0 / RE252 / RE272 versus other IEM's (post #153)

    RE0 multi-review skip to post #153     Just started listening to these about an hour ago.   I like them a lot so far, so they are worthy of a review, imho.     These are my initial impressions, posted in a different thread, copied here.          I just opened up my RE0...

    Quick Impression: Sony MDR-7550

    I needed another pair of IEMs like a hole in the head, but the 7550s intrigued me. My current portable 'phones are the MDR-NC300D. Yeah, I know ... but on a plane, they work really well. And they actually sound decent all things considered. I'm not doing critical listening on a plane. For a long...

    Universal IEMs that are STURDY?

    I am sick and tired of buying new IEMs when my previous pairs die. I don't baby my pairs. I work out all the time and need my phones. I take them to work, I wear them during commutes... anyway, I need something with actual build quality. Budget is up to 250$, preferably 200$. How about the CK10?

    SONY MDR-EX1000 color fading out

    - I got these last week (Brand new, sealed), and I have been using them religiously (Closed to 50-75 hours).   - I notice that the lettering that says "MDR-EX1000" and "JAPAN" in white imprint is fading out.       Dammit!  is that also happening to your pair? Can anyone who owns...

    Best >$250 in ear for my needs

    I'm looking for a balanced IEM for listening to a wide range of music.   I'd like it to be detailed but not necessarily analytical and it's of the highest priority that it sounds good with every kind of music. I know this is very vague but right now i'm just trying to get some ideas. Thanks...

    Name some headphones cheaper and perform better than this pair

    Right now, Amazon has the Phiaton 200 shipped for about $150. I think this is a decent price for them, but I was wondering if there was a another pair of IEM that are cheaper yet perform better.    I'm also looking at the Ultimate Ears SuperFi 5vi or the older ATHCK7, which are around the...

    Sennheiser IE8: The Search for the Perfect Tips

    As most Sennheiser IE8 owners know, getting the right tips for their IE8s is one of the most important features because it changes the sound quality more than any other IEM. As a proud owner, I have tried multiple tips, seeing how each tip affects the sound quality. Usually, I've found that the...

    Sennheiser IE7 or Sony MDR-EX700

    Hey everyone. I have been researching these two earphones for a while, but I can't find any direct comparisons of the two.   I can get the Sony MDR-EX700 for £15.50 more than the Sennheiser IE7, so I was just wondering which one you guys thinks has better sound quality and is better overall...

    Got a pair of fake Sony MDR EX-700

    Folks. I got a pair of $1.05(shipped) Sony MDR Ex-700 IEMs off eBay. I was curious to see how decent a $1 pair of headphones can sound. I threw them on for a few minutes as soon as I got them. Well they sound NICE. Not as nice as the audio technica ATH-ad500 I recently tried out but very decent...

    Maximun BASS from IEMs

    Hi everybody.   A week ago I ordered the Monster Turbines when it was $58 on amazon. Hoping to finally get a pair of IEM that could satisfy my hunger for bass. After 4 days of testing and burn-in, I must say these failed miserably compared to the Playaz N1 with the foam tip. On a scale of...
