typically small companies that make audiophile cables only. There are big companies, but they charge more.

Not sure how it sounds yet, I have literally just ordered them. The seller said they sound great though and he reviews headphones (Skylab) - he only used them woodied and recabled though, but stock apparently they sound great as well. The person who did the recabling on this specific headphone is warrior05 who I can vouch for - but our very own soloz recables headphones as well.

I know I would, but for half the price and double the sq a pair of AKG k81dj's fit the bill and they isolate better to boot

When IEM's Attack(tm)

Okay. I know I've gushed tears of joy on you all in previous posts regarding my lovely Shure e4c's.

And it's true. I find them to be the most neutral, most non fatiguing and even bass capable IEM's I've listened to thus far. It's like having the cleanest of studio monitor setups plugged right into your head.

I love them.

Yet .. as of today, I've learned they should be used with respect or else you might end up with tweezers down your ear.

Yes. The small grey, uber flexible Shure tips that I love (cause I can get them so deep in my ear) seperated from the headphone today and remained lodged in my right ear.

...



...

At first I thought it was cute.

Then, realizing I couldn't get it out with my fingers I grew slightly concerned but still with a smile on my face.

Then ... noticing that my attempts to remove it with my fingers had pushed it even further into my ear ... I sort of decided to go find some tools and get it out before I ended up embarassed in the ER.

Needless to say ... it took about 20 minutes with a paperclip (pry action) and some tweezers before I finally got it out. It came out with a very loud suck-pop! noise as it had formed a really tight seal.

The moral of the story?

Don't pull your IEM's out too fast or you might leave the tip lodged in your ear canal.

Future occurrences of this horrifying moment can be easily avoided by unseating/sealing your IEM's with a few light twists while you pull them out.

Thought you all might find that entertaining at least.

At the moment, I'm wondering if I should go ahead and demo the new PJ Harvey CD I just bought or maybe wait a bit.
