    Hey guys, heard great things about KZ earphones and looking into buying one which I use under full face motorcycle helmet. I have QCY bluetooth earphones which are painful and come off as I am sliding on the helmet. Any suggestions for a flush fit

    The $25 Marshall Mode earphones on Amazon. Seriously.

    I've only owned one Marshall, and it was incredibly disappointing. Really made me not want to try another.

    Could someone point out to me how to put brainwavz hm5 pads on the lps... thanks

    Yeah, well Marshall had a really rough start with their headphones. Similar to how Skullcandy headphones used to suck when the brand just launched.

    The Marshall Mode is somewhat of an odd exception to the Marshall lineup. It's shocking to me that this earphone gets 0 attention. Because it's fantastic. And for $25 right now, it's simply unbeatable.

    I suppose that the darker sound signature (it's oddly similar to the Sennheiser 558) won't appeal to the head-fi masses who prefer a V-shape sound with treble sparkle.

    Yeah, I compared these to the Sennheiser 558. They're that good. I swear, if these had a Sennheiser logo they would easily sell like hotcakes for $99.99. They're only a measly $25. And nobody cares.

    Sadly they're $50 in Canada. Grrrr...So I'm gonna give the KZ ZS5 a try.

    Hmm, I do prefer 558 to 598

    I have an idea for a ZS6 mod. Take the dampener out of the Ostry tuning tips and shove it into the nozzle of the ZS6.
    Anyone tried that?

    Need to stretch them around the outside of the cups. It's not an elegant fit but it works.

    Got the $5 KZE earbud. Not sure model name but its general iem shape, and metal. It took like 6 months to arrive. But it is really warm, iem. SO warm, i probably can wear this without a coat in Canadian winter. I guess its ok for 5 bones :D


    Pretty horrible stock tips. Threw some sony hybrids on em, and all is Gold. :D

    For five bucks y'all should be happy it didn't disintegrate and give your dog parvo.

    I know ChiFi has gotten really affordable and the cost/performance ratio is impressive, but for under ten bucks if it's making sound you're already doing pretty well.

    Thanks,got one on will do other tomorrow. Got the standard memory foam pads, which ones are best?? Thanks
  14. kokakolia
    Well...Before the Beats headphone craze, most people used $10 earbuds anyway. Remember the JVC gummies?

    Also, the Koss KSC 75 are usually under $15 and they've been around for a really, really long time.

    Ive only got the hybrid pads. They seem to improve soundstage, increase treble, and reduce the mid-bass hump. Hard to go back to the original pads. Not sure what their other pads would sound like.
