You can find much better for the same money you'd waste on Bose.

I changed out tubes to a different set but forgot to make an adjustment internally to accommodate for the new, lower power tubes. So I basically overpowered the new tubes and literally fried the circuit board. It's probably repairable, I just haven't tried yet.

My Sennheiser HD430 set is approaching 40 years of age now (I've had to replace foam a couple of times - is cheap & easy to do), still sounds awesome. Their over the ear design is still among the most comfortable around.

I hate ear buds, I seldom use 1/8" jack headphones - prefer using the car's stereo.

Given my experience w/ Senns, I'd look there first for a "public transportation ready" set.

IMO, the GR07 or GR07 bass represent one of the best for the money right now. I have the GR07 Bass and they are really good earphones for the cost. I think I paid less than $30 shipped for the pair. To purchase the Apple Ear Pods, they cost the same amount. Of course for serious listening, I'm reaching for my Etymotics.
Yeah haha the Apple ear buds, even with the big improvements they've made, still can't hold a candle to my S5i or GR07.

Osaka Denki Onkyo had it right when he said it takes power to create clarity. and ima rant real quick, everyone can take their digital crap back to the store, analog amps still hit harder, have meatier mids, and crisper highs than most new digital amps today.
For at home, sitting down, with power-hungry full-sized cans, sure! For on-the-go, well, we have to stick with our digital crap

UNFORTUNATE TRUTH

don't get me wrong, my phone is a lifeline media player used frequently

but when it comes down to my car or home stereo. DONT even think about putting one single digital function on the amplifier.. recievers and stuff, yeah sure no problem. but for power,, i just like it plain and simple

I'm using some Monster Turbine Coppers. It's the highest end on Monster's monitor line up. They are surprisingly crisp and clear. I got them through the Monster Outlet store on their website for 150. It MSRP's for 400 I believe. I do not regret the purchase at all!

Maybe you should get those portable hybrid tube amps and let us know how those are!

biggerbang - I hear/read the monster turbine IEM's are pretty good, probably the only monster-branded products that are worthwhile.

oo that does sound like a fun endeavor

keep in mind analog does not mean it has tubes, just that it processes signal in an analog format. not digital
digital = has processor to determine where and how to code music and which amplifier/ transistor it goes to.. = thinks too much about performing.
analog = responds to + responses in power. and frequency determines where that little packet of power is transformed.. its only a response device, it cannot think. it only performs

Thanks for the info! I know a tiny bit about IEM's and cans, but I know even less about amplifiers LOL!

Also use optional cable with music controls and Comply foam tips. Very, very good sound. Not the best thing out there, but for the money I think it's hard to do much better.

I've been using for 3 years now- Monsters Turbine, also very happy with them.They come with plenty of ear fittings and two cases and the cord is considered tangle proof. (it does unravel quite nicely)
