  1. Hi. I don't have the x10i's, but have had the x10's since they where released, way back in I think Dec 2007. They are an amazing little headphone. I listen to tons of rock on mine. I prefer the sound of the x10's over the S4's and Custom-2's that I also have from Klipsch. The bass is deep and tighter when you compare the x10 to the S4. That said, your Etymotic ER 4's are a great headphone as well, some may consider better. They question from me is, what's wrong with yoru ER-4's now that your looking to replace them? Check out this thread: http://www.head-fi.org/t/478568/multi-iem-review-244-iems-compared-yamaha-eph-100-monster-miles-davis-trumpet-added-06-19-12 The guy has a reivew of the X10, and your ER-4's. Read his review of the ER-4, see if you agree, then you uset that to guage his review of the x10's.
  2. Edgar is right, to quote the sign up page even though you can enter your email... "To qualify to win, you must be a current Klipsch Facebook fan" So for us not on Facebook....I guess the system will DQ us when the email/name doesnt match the data FB provides. :/
  3. WOW return of the Smurf Khorns..... Just kidding very cool project!!!!! Smurf's? I was thinking it was more TARDIS like.
  4. Since I can't find any posts about Klipsch Sponsoring the venue, I figured I would make one. So since the announcement I had been hoping to get to a concert to see how the venue sounded. Well, I never been previously, but to quote my friend when I told him it sounded really good now "That's good because it sounded terrible before" as he has been to the venue a few times. In the lobby, hallways, and Men's room they had what looked like CA-800T speakers, but with a silkscreend KLIPSCH across the front as well in like a goldish color. Between set's on the Flat Screen TV's they had some Klipsch advertising going for headphones, new air gallery stuff, etc. The venue was pretty dark, even after the show, so I couldn't get a good shot of the stage speakers. It looked like 4 large speakeers hanging(2x2grid), with maybe 3-4 subwoofer stacked to the left/right against the wall. So I was invited to go to the Dashboard Confessional (Solo Acoustic) set. All three sets sounded great. Any ideas on what is actually used?Is it the KI series?
  5. Interesting results. I didn't realize it when you started the thread, but every one of those cards you listed is a PCIe card....internal to the PC. The PC is one of the noiseest noise genrators that I know. It seems most of the true highend audio cards/pro stuff, is all external via usb/firewire. I've got a headphone amp with a built in DAC that uses USB.... the signal is clean compared to any internal cards I had tried using, or the worst was the headphone jacks orginally on the PC speakers connected.
  6. I totally disagree on this. I've have the x10's S4's and Custom 2's. All of them are more refined with a headphone amp. I have the Headamp Pico. The reason I say this, is that your iphone and most other portables devices cheap out on the amp section to have the battery last longer. With the Pico, I find that I get a stronger, tigher/deeper response. The headphone amp is like a capacitor you put next to you sub-woofer amp in the car. It helps give the headphones the proper juice they want/need.
  7. Windows 7 will detect the different hardware and ask you to re-activate each time you move between laptops. People get this in desktops when they replace a motherboard. Some of the laptops aren't that 'easy' to get the HDD's out. Better off with the external thing...and/or, hate saying this, cloud type of storage/applications.... google docs.
  8. Looks like RB-81's, was 4 of them at this bar I was at on Friday called Barcade in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NY Sounded pretty good. I swore there was a sub somewhere, but couldn't locate.
  9. And there is the problem. Klipsch makes speakers, not electronics.
  10. I'll by them for $20. :-) Love my set. Took 5 years for the amp to kick, but I did get them fixed. I eventually upgraded to the reference series, loving those currently.
  11. I;ve used the Klipsch ones for years. Works fine, but they just dont adjust(cant angle the speaker), Wasnt really a problem for me given how small the room was an setup.
  12. Looking to decouple the subwoofer (I have a SW-311 on order) from the hardwood floor in my apartment. I've read great things about the Subdude, but not sure if that would be better or going with spiked feet. I've read spikes couple or de-couple the speaker from the floor. Seems like a lot of gray area on this subject.
  13. Jealously of that last picture. (well all of them really) Those PF39's do look stunning with the sun glistening them.
  14. What are you using as a crossover on those? Paul I am, with 1000% percent certainty, that my girlfriend would drop dead, walk out or kill me if she came home and those were sitting in our living room. Yep, undeniable, i would be dead, for sure. Nice TV stand and bookshelves. I can't find the speakers? Are the inwall or something? :-) Looks pretty good to me. I barely even noticed the Jubs.
  15. If you edit your post and select the image, you should be able to enter in a size for the image. try 800w 600h. Looks good from what I can see. :-)
