    my friend had these headphones and broken cable near the speaker!

    unfortunate, wonder how easy they are to get repaired.  I've used mine for over 2 years, no problems so far!
  3. Gosod
    he spoiled the cable near a speaker he used them 1.5 years! later I will ask him for pictures!

    Do any of you get funny looks when you take your rigs out at work?  I know if I took out a double amped stack at work people would look at me funny.

    About 2 years ago I bought a Sony Walkman DD33 cassette player. I have been collecting old metal demos from the 80's and 90's, mostly buying off Ebay, and then "ripped" them with the DD33 and put them up on rare demo blogs (no copyright issues since these are self released demos that are over 20 years old). The DD33 is considered to be one of the really good Sony Walkmans and I wanted something good but still relatively cheap for "ripping" cassettes.
    One time I decided to try the Walkman when commuting to work.
    I remember one kid, around 11 years old, who looked at the DD33 with big eyes when I took the cassette out and changed sides.

    Must have been the first portable cassette player he ever saw. Well, perhaps the first ever cassette...

    Actually, Music Maker is the company (a rather small one) and MrZ Tomahawk and Ting are their two earbud models. They also have a few IEMs.

    I prefer the Tomahawk to Monk. It is much more detailed and the soundstage is more 3D. It sounds like an improved version of Monk. But I have to agree that Monk does scale very well. I have tried my Tomahawk with my new Cayin C5 and they sort of sound the same, but with the Monk I do notice improvements in many areas.

    I've just traded my Zen 2 for a pair of Zen 1. Never really appreciated the Zen 2 so then I might as well trade them to someone who might appreciate them better. And I might like Zen 1 better.

    Other than that my favorite 3 earbuds are Blox TM7, Sony MDR-E252 (ancient Sony earbud released in 1982 or 1983, and in my ears the best Sony earbuds - better than the legendary E484) and Sennheiser MX980.

    Well, I suppose I'm an earbud guy.

    The Monks are the best bang for the buck in the earbud world every. They could easily be sold for $30-40. They might work as a "gateway drug" to get people who don't bother with earbuds to start digging them...

    You should check out the Earbuds roundup thread.

    Why so some people prefer those earbuds? You get no isolation I suppose, quality can't beat an iem... Maybe in wrong, just simply wondering
