    Why am I not satisfied with my IEM's?

    Okay so I usually just lurk here but I decided to go ahead and make an account and ask. I don't have much experience in the headphone world but I do consider myself to be very picky about how my music sounds. I'm big on my home theater setup but I've just really never had a set of good IEM's...

    New Headphones

    Hi, I'm looking for a new pair of in ear earphones, primarily for running, but also for listening to music on the bus. I had the SE115 before, and when I wore them over the ears, my ears were sore after a few minutes because of the thick cable. I was thinking about getting the Image S4i. ...

    Shure SE215 or UE 600s (superFi. 5vi)?

    I need some help deciding between these headphones. I can get both of these for the same price but needed some advice. I'm not really crazy about bass but i just want it to be there, and noise isolation is quite important for me. The thing that bothers me about the SE215 is that i have to wear...

    IEMs for European players

    I think it will be useful topic for users with european volume limited players, such as Sony, Apple and others, or just quite players. No amping.   So let's start:)

    Reviews on Ultimate Ears 500vi and 600vi?

    I can't find many reviews on the 500vi and 600vi.  Is anyone using either of these?  I'm guessing the 600vi is supposed to have better audio because of the top-fire armature?  And presumably the 500vi doesn't stick out from your ears as much and might have a better cord?

    Is the uDac overrated?

    I think so. I paid $70 for it used around here. It is a HUGE improvement over my onboard audio. But. It is barely much better than my Droid. Yes. My Motorola Droid is similar. Yes, the uDac gives my Grado's more soundstage and a tiny bit more bass and cleans up the mids but not worth $70 over...

    Ultimate Ears 700 Appreciation Thread!

    I've been using these for a while now, and I really like them! Bass is tight and just enough for my taste, mids and highs (Comply tips decreases sibilance) are detailed and froward as good as th Etymotic hf5. It has a decent soundstage. Very comfortable with the supplied Comply foam tips...

    Upgrade advice: from UE Superfi 5vi to ??

    Hello guys. I purchased a Superfi 5vi used, not so long ago (about a month) and I'm enjoying these IEMs very much. The isolation is pretty good (using silicon tips, better using foam tips) and so is the sound quality.   However, I'm looking for some advice in upgrading to other IEM's. I'm...

    First Impression: UE SuperFi 5vi from Amazon

    UPDATE 06/04/10: After more listening, I'm finding these earphones to lack the bass for my personal taste. It could be that the MP3 player that I'm using is rated at max 18mw, since it sounded much better plugged in to my PC. But for portable use, the bass could be better. However I maintain...

    Need Hippo VB replacement with remote and mic. Under $200 preferably

    I currently have a pair of Hippo VBs and I really enjoy them.  Is there anything with a nice amount of bass under $200 with a remote and mic that sounds the same or better than the Hippo VBs? Also, I can't get anything with a plug fatter than the Hippo's or that absolutely requires an amp. So...

    Super.Fi 5vi for $70, or Klipsch S4i for $100? Better than ADDIEM?

    I need a new pair of IEM for my iPod.   First are these two better than the ADDIEM?  I have tried those, and they were okay, but not spectacular.   Second, does the deal on the UE make it a better choice than the Klipsch?  Does the control button work to advance/pause songs on an ipod...
