Hi All, We are a group of audiophiles based in Singapore who have been tinkering around to make a pair of planar magnetic IEMs. We love the sound of planar magnetic drivers and always wondered how it would be like if we could really take that sound anywhere on the go with us. After about a year of development, we managed to create a closed planar magnetic IEM which is also lightweight enough to bring with us anywhere on the go. We would just like to make a small announcement over here to share what we have been doing with the community. Thank you! Attached is a poster we have made to just highlight some of the features of our IEMs as well as a shot of it. Thanks for looking!

Are these SHURE SE215 Fake? (Blue Box)
TrioxLight posted a topic in HeadphonesHello, I recently purchased a pair of Shure SE215 online and they came in this box: http://s90.photobucket.com/user/ofey_s/media/Shure/SE215-01.jpg.html From what I have read this version is the "international" version. If I am correct this is the U.S box: https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/G/01/musical-instruments/detail-page/Amazon_SE215-CL_img10_lg.jpg Is this a problem for me as I am based in the United States? And is there a difference in the manufacturing?
Earbuds or IEMs like/ better than Shure SE-215?
Lilly posted a topic in HeadphonesI go through a pair of cheap Sony earbuds (DR-EX12IP) every 1-3 months. I didn't want to get something nicer for fear of them breaking after a month as well, but I'd like to give it a shot. I'm looking at Shure SE-215s. My main priority is durability. I am probably not likely to put them in a case when not using them. I know it's bad. But I use headphones at least 5 hours throughout the day (sometimes more), so it's easier for me to just keep them coiled in my pocket. The next priority is comfort. My ears are pretty small, so that could be an issue. And I don't know that Shure IEMs are really meant for the general public. Is there a more comfortable option out there? My budget is kind of variable; basically I want to spend the least amount on the most durable pair. If that means going up to $300 I could do that, but only if I was absolutely convinced they wouldn't break for a few years. I'm more inclined to stay in the $100-200 range. Sound quality is important too, but I figure since I've been using cheap headphones I will be wowed by anything over $100 so I'd rather lean on durability over sound quality. If anyone wants to talk me out of the Shures please do! I don't really know what else is out there. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks!

Sennheiser CX980 vs Sennheiser MX980
RobotsEatCookies posted a topic in Portable AudioSorry, if this is a repost! I’ve been thinking about buying in-ear headphones, and I found theSennheiser IE8. But those were too expensive, so I did my research and found two in-ears that are less expensive-the CX980 and the MX980. The only problem right now is which one I should get. Some factors I will be considering include- Accessories- While I usually don’t use the accessories too much except maybe the carrying case and the sports clip, if the headphones do include accessories. Fortunately, that’s about all both the headphones come with. The only question I can ask is how good they work with the headphones. Build Quality- I want these in ears to last as long as possible. I take good care of my headphones, but I will use them a lot-from listening to my Sansa Clip+ to conferencing my friends on Skype. Every time I leave the house, I put on my headphones to listen to music and pass the time. I know Sennheiser has a great reputation for build, but some Sennheisers last longer than others. Noise Isolation- Not a huge deal, but nice if included. While it is nice to filter out outside noise such as car engine noise or people talking elsewhere, I do often talk to people with my headphones in my ear anyway, so it doesn’t matter much. Microphonics- I never found microphonics a huge problem when listening to music, but it certainly does matter. I will sometimes mess with my headphones, tangle them, wrap them, and untangle them when they get tangled because they’re a mess. Comfort- I will be wearing my headphones for hours of time, once I listened to 200+ songs without removing my headphones! I want my headphones to feel as if it were cushioning my ear or is just simply not there anymore. Sound Quality- I will be listening to classical music, techno and electronic (videogames/movies/YouTube), rap, hip-hop, and pop. I will also be using it to watch videos, play movies, conference, chat on the phone via Skype or smartphone, and when playing video games. Value- To me, $200 is still quite an investment despite being a ton less expensive than the $400 IE8s. I want every single cent to be worth its price. Also, I don’t want fakes either, but this isn’t a huge deal as I’ve only seen real MX980s and CX980s. Does anyone know which headphones are better suited for my requirements? What are the differences between these two headphones? I will be listening to music on a Sandisk Sansa Clip+. The headphones will be purchased through Amazon, I have webpages listed below- -Amazon USA: Sennheiser CX980 $149.99 + $4.99 S&H (aTreasureIsland, seller rep 100% 209 ratings) -Amazon USA: Sennheiser MX980 $199.99 + Free S&H (globalmobiles, seller rep 96% 4,401 ratings) Can someone recommend me the better in-ear headphones? Thanks!!!
