    Sony xba-4ip vs UE 600vi

    I did my hw, found the facts, and still can't decide.   I can get the 600vi's for $75 and the 4ip's for $160 (significantly less than retail)   A lot of people criticize 4ip's, but I was considering that they are so critical because the 4ip's are supposed to be at an entirely different...

    Sony XBA - which one for a basshead?

    After I'm disappointed with my brand new MDR-XB90EX, I'm looking for new IEMs, but I'm getting an F886, so this time I'm want better IEMs for high def music. H3 and 40 are too expensive for my budget, but what can you say about H1 and 30? I, of course, read the reviews about them, but not sure...

    Custom earphone molds, like the Decibullz Custom Earphone Mold. Thoughts please!
