>>> Head/earphones Recommendations Thread

This thread serves as a Q&A section for all new/existing audiophiles seeking advice on their next headphone purchase!

The rules are simple, no flaming/bashing and try not to post irrelevant post.

You may ask us headphone/earphone related question and fellow audiophiles are free tow assist you.

To get a proper recommendation without wasting several posts, please stick to the following format. Just cut and paste in your request post.

- Your rig (mp3 players, amps, soundcard etc)
- What type of usage (movies/ gaming/ music etc)
- File format used in your source (i.e. flac, mp3 etc)
- Genre of music you listen to (classical, jazz, metal, etc)
- Headphone / earphone type (closed, open, cirumaural, IEM etc)
- Other requirements (if any) (mic, volume control, 5.1ch, 7.1ch etc)
- Budget (in figures)

Do encourage new comers to read up a little for a better understanding on the different types and application of headphones as well as the usual terminology in use here.

Do seek all forumners' support on this effort to clean up the messy state of this forum with related discussions spread over unending new recommendation request topics popping up everyday.

Not here to promote "my" thread. This thread belongs to all forumners here. By having a dedicated recommendation thread in a proper format just makes it much easier for newbies to ask and sifus to answer in a single thread.

Do take a look at a successful recommendation thread where over 7 updates has drawn in excess of 18,000 properly regulated, constructive and unbiased posts.

Nobody owes anybody an answer, it is a free world. It is just too messy over here for anyone to get any recommendation at all.

If all forumners can co-operate and keep all headphones recommendation requests and replies in one thread instead of starting a couple of new topics everyday, others will be drawn to this forum knowing where to look for answers specifically.

For example, @blazefire999 could have posted over here in the proposed format instead of starting a new topic:

"Currently using a beats Studio, intending to change a brand new headphone. Looking out for headphones that has strong bass like studio and it must be comfortable. Anyone can recommend?"

@kaltzbalger or any other forumners would have been able to provide a recommendation straight off instead of having to clarify with @blazefire:

"How much is your budget? Music preference?"

http://forums.hardwarezone.com.sg/he...s-3788550.html

If @blazefire were to have posted here as follows:

- Your rig (mp3 players, amps, soundcard etc)
- What type of usage (movies/ gaming/ music etc)
- File format used in your source (i.e. flac, mp3 etc)
- Genre of music you listen to (classical, jazz, metal, etc)
- Headphone / earphone type (closed, open, cirumaural, IEM etc)
- Other requirements (if any) (mic, volume control, 5.1ch, 7.1ch etc)

@kaltzbalger or any other forumners would have been able to provide a relevant recommendation straight away.

With this format applied to a dedicated recommendation for DAC/Amps as well, could have easily eliminated 40% of the replicating topics here.

i think the iPhone is much smaller than the S3 but it's an iPhone though.

Would the Galaxy Ace / Nexus One be smaller to your ears?

To avoid all the confusion your post had cause and get the best possible answers, please use this format:

- Your rig (mp3 players, amps, soundcard etc)
- What type of usage (movies/ gaming/ music etc)
- File format used in your source (i.e. flac, mp3 etc)
- Genre of music you listen to (classical, jazz, metal, etc)
- Headphone / earphone type (closed, open, cirumaural, IEM etc)
- Other requirements (if any) (mic, volume control, 5.1ch, 7.1ch etc)
- Budget (in figures)

Looking for a earphone/headphone, noise cancellation if possible, don't mind wireless

Your rig (Specifically for use on HTC One V)
- What type of usage (1. Lots of overseas talking has to be very clear on vocals, then music on the go and then movies)
- File format used in your source (doesn't matter)
- Genre of music you listen to (chinese pop mostly)
- Headphone / earphone type (IEM, noise cancellation, if possible wireless)
- Other requirements (if any) (mic, volume control, a must)
