    In-ear Bluetooth headphones recommendations (for running/biking)

    I just burned through my second pair of Jaybird Freedom headphones in 6 months (that's whole story in itself). I'd like to stay away from Jaybird, but I would be interested to hear if anyone has experience with the Jaybird Freedom "Sprint" or "BlueBuds X" (Jaybird has offered me 10% off).  ...

    Zune HD vs Sony X

    Hi, Im just debating whether or not to sell my Sony X for a Zune HD. I realize how amazing the SQ of the Sony X is but the Zune is very enticing. I believe the Zune will have a good SQ as well and its more of a all rounder device such as the ipod touch. Thanks

    replacement NC iem for Walkman X?

    I use the included NC iem with my Walkman X when travelling (NC is definitely the lesser of two evils on a noisy airplane flight IMHO). I've searched on Head-Fi, the Sony site, and google but I can't find replacement NC iems. I found several Sony NC iems, but those included the electronics for...

    Is new iPod Classic really that bad?

    I'm thinking of getting new DAP to feed my IE8s. I've heard Sony X and as it sounds awesome with them, I'd like to have a bit more space to use. Also, as I use Mac and iTunes, another iPod would be pretty comfortable thing. I don't really want a Touch - I own iPhone 3GS and it's enough for me...

    Is a LOD for the Sony Walkman X Series necessary?

    I use Ultrasone HFI-780 headphones and all sounds great with the HP out.  In fact, to me, it seems the Ultrasones unamped sound better than when I use my SRA71A through the HP out.  My question is what effect a LOD has on the overall sound quality of the Sony X series?    Thanks, Chris

    Sony X series cases

    Can anyone point me a link to buy Sony X 1060 leather & silicone cases? The ones i found in eBay and PDAir are bulky, although the leather of the PDAir seems very good, but i really don't like the way they close. Thanks.
