    Fixing Headphone driver

    If you can find the wire that the solder point was supposed to be hooked up to you can probably just solder a wire directly to that and then glue it in place for strain relief. Be careful though the wires that are attached to the solder points outside the driver housing is very thin as it hooks...

    Etymotic ER3XR

    You can upgrade to the new ER4 cable, but they are a little costly. Definitely still a bargain in-ear if you are into neutral sounding in-ears.

    *TPU's Gaming Headphone/Headset Thread*

    HE-560s used is about 350. You can also get Sennheiser HD660S used for about that.

    *TPU's Gaming Headphone/Headset Thread*

    Maybe a used set of HiFiMAN HE-560s with better pads. Better bass, better midrange, but only a little better imaging. HD800S is also better on all accounts but is also probably too pricey.

    HiFiMAN RE800 In-ears

    xorbe how big is your room? People tend to forget the physics when buying subs :) And you get a long way with one of the open source designs in thick plywood, as long as you can source the correct parts. In-ears are very tricky to design and require a lot of expensive tooling, especially with...

    HiFiMAN RE800 In-ears

    Agreed on the looks thing, but some will probably like the gold coating. Making a sub woofer that performs well is pretty straight forward compared to designing an in-ear and a high performance 9.2 mm dynamic driver.

Today, we take a look at a new high-end offering from HiFiMAN. It is dubbed the RE800 and features a brand-new driver from...

    Brainwavz introduces its Quad Balanced Armature B400 to the UK

    Hopefully! In-ears is probably one of the types of headphones that has less variance as long as you get them to seal towards your ear canal. So as long as you get a good fit sound quality should be the same. Only thing that changes is the geometry of the ear canal and otoacoustics which should...
