Planning on getting one of these.



And also, any recommendations for cheap iPhone 4s screen protectors? I got a really cheap one but it's awful.

I just got some of these in gold. Was looking for something I could use while in the gym, and these have been great so far. Occasionally slip out your ear depending what exercise you're doing, but the sound quality is great considering they're reasonably cheap.

Yeah, I just need it for school and when I run or play ball but slipping out is not a big deal for me.

Still loving my HFI-580s, but I'm considering upgrading my portable amp (Fiio E11, use one of their L9s when listening on my phone as well). Any recommendations, OTC?

There is upgrade from fiio to that,



apparently from reviews it can compare to desktop amps and $500 dollar portable amps.

Really regretting getting rid of my sound system. My first two sound systems (house and car) I gave away because I didn't want to move them (to another house/car.) Seemed like it was ok at the time... but such a stupid decision. Also stupid to look back at something that happened a long time ago and regret it.

I can't do over the ear headphones. They are impractical. I can't do true in ear headphones because they hurt after awhile.

The best headphone for comfort I've found is... Bose IE2. Something you can wear all of the time, which is what I want. Can exercise wearing it, whatever. I would prefer elite SQ but the SQ isn't bad by any stretch. It's good. It's just not DA BESS. But Pain is not da bess either. Nor is wearing clunky ass headphones while you exercise.

Eventually, I will get another sound system. My needs have changed. I don't think I need floor standing speakers with dual 12s. I want something that's clear... maybe some nice bookshelves. But still to get a nice system (from the ground up, I have nothing now) is gonna be expensive.

I have a Sennheiser HD600. I had gone through a long audio journey looking for headphones, and this might be the end. They have the natural vocals and good detail i want, and also provide good bass and soundstage.

And yes, i have an amp and dac... not running them out of an Ipod.

Built for bluetooth sport use. I absolutely love these. Technically you can do phone calls on them, but it's really crappy quality. So don't buy these if you are going to do phone calls at all (lots of background noise), but for music use. Absolutely fantastic considering they are earbuds and bluetooth. I don't believe there isn't anything better wireless for mobile use compared to these. I've jogged with these without them coming close to falling out and still being comfortable.

8/10

Well they are worth it(IMO) since not everyone thinks spending that much on headphones is sensible lol. But it has awesome clarity and has amazing crisp bass. Too much to put in one post :) I'll come back and read the rest of the thread later
