1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Sorry Mike, those suck. Thin and Bright. For IEMs try the SkullCandy Titans for $40. I bought a pair for a business trip this week and they are not too bad.

    My favorite cheap IEMs are the iMetal 590s. Comfy and great balanced sound.

    As the Titans have broken in, there is a bit more bass than I like.

    Recs for a closed back headphone $250 and under?
    There is a $150 Audio Technica but I forget the numbers. I like the Beyerdynamic cans in this price range too. Also check out Denon.
    Audio Technica ath-m50. Most headphone people hold them in high regard, though they used to be an even better value when they were 30% less expensive a year ago. M50s use different drivers than ESW-9s. Here is a comparison of these two Audio Technica and a few other closed cans.

    I am considering these: http://www.audio-technica.com/cms/headphones/1c7efaa15727a938/index.html

    I have read that they are among the best options under $200. I will use them with an iPhone/iPod, for now. Does anyone have experience with them?

    Noise cancellation is my primary concern, and I have read that, while overpriced, the Bose QC 15s are as good as it gets for on/over the ear noise cancellation. Thoughts on that as well?

    just had a chat with a guy randomly about IEM's since I noticed he had a pair and his rec was the Westone UM's, the 4 or 5 or something, though 3's are probably good.


    for about $100-150 and listening to a range of genres, though mostly rock (no r&b/rap or pop or techno, etc)... what do you guys recomend?
