    Also known as "Joe's Earbud Experience"

    OK, technically they're In Ear Monitors, but most people wouldn't know what that was :p

    So...the Shure E2c ($80 or so)...one of my friends had these, and the wire started to fray, so he made a complete hash out of repairing them, and ended up getting a new pair of iM716's at a great price. What happened to the still perfectly working E2c's you might ask? Well, I'm glad you did. I got them...for FREEEEEEE...

    OK, because of his 'repairs' they were quite uncomfortable, so I started reading some HiFi forums, and discovered that they were relatively easy to repair (pop em open, cut the wire, and resolder). So I did. The right one sounds great, and fits perfectly! The left one I decimated...RIP, little buddies :(

    Well, even though I just got them, I began to understand why IEMs are so great so I did a bit of research, and decided on the Westone UM1's...my wallet hates me.

    Oh, well...let's not destroy these :p

    Don't spend all your money Joseph....there are meetups coming up! :p

    (wasn't I supposed to keep you from spending all your money? This isn't very easy from 800 miles away...why don't you just send me your wallet)

    Well, you haven't sent me your wallet yet. Keep procrastinating and keep spending money, and I may have to come retrieve it myself.

    I haven't got a CLUE as to what you are talking about ... :(

    But there is ONE thing I do understand: drain of bank account. That is something so close to home, to merely read the words almost hurts!

    ahh joe, you're going to drain all your money if you keep looking into serious audio equipment. it's addictive.

    nice choice btw. not my first choice (not because there are better ones, i just like big honkin headphones :D), but certainly great for in ears. :thumbup:
