    I am new to collecting and I am trying to figure out if I just made a mistake buying Spider Realvoice IEMs.

    So I am new to the world of headphone collecting and I wanted to get a nice beginner pair of IEMs  for under $100. I was torn between the Meelectronics A161P and the Spider Realvoice. I have listened to some Shures in the past and found them flat and not enjoyable and I was worried the A161P...

    C5 or Gratitude? Looking for IEM around $200

    Hi All,    Was hoping you could share your extensive knowledge and throw some recommendations my way. I'm not an expert so you'll have to use layman terms. :-)   I'm in the market for a new pair of IEMs. Budget would be limited to the $200 mark. An iPhone remote is now a must for me.  ...

    Noob looking for something in particular

    I'm a total noob with audio and headphones as far as sensitivity goes. I know as an artist that I can see things that many people can't, so I understand that many of you can hear things that I can't. My last headphones (sony mdr ex38ip) sounded good to me, but that's the best I've had. Yep, 30...

    Very Confused. Spider realvoice E-EAPH-0001 vs E-EAPH-00A1

    Are these two different items? How about sound quality?   They are listed separately everywhere even on the manufacturing page and the price points are very different.   http://www.spidercable.com/detail.php?g=35   vs   http://www.spidercable.com/detail.php?g=52   I just...

    Good Sub-$100 Headphones for Metal

    This may have been asked before.  What I am looking for is suggestions on headphones in this price range that are capable of faithfully reproducing the detail and technicality of modern metal and its various subgenres.  In other words, very fast music.  Something with exceptionally tight bass...

    Need IEM upgrade($100-150 CAD)

    I currently use the ATH-M50s for my fullsize headphones and I really love them. However, I have a pair of old Sennheiser CX300's which have had their time. I think their mids and highs are pretty terrible so I'm looking for a new pair of IEMs which meet the following preferences around the...

    I'm a man who likes big cans, I'm looking into my first set of "REAL" IEM's Help?

    Every time I've thought of buying a set of >$100 IEM's I stopped because I feared I would snag them on something and BAM I'm out $200, when 200$ cans would've taken the hit, or at least been repairable. But it's time for me to bite the bullet. I have owned the Etymotic Research ER-6's (not the...

    1964 EARS V6 Thread

    The 1964 EARS V6 is finally in my ears, and it's wonderful. Wider soundstage and more detailed than the Quad to my ears. It's a more balanced sound than the Quad, yet with plenty of bass extension, forward mids and extended highs. Those who thought the highs were a bit recessed in the 1964-Q...
