As many of you know ( and Lurks is getting really bored with me recounting to all my friends whenever I introduce him ) the only reason any of you know me is because I was thinking of buying a pair of Sennheiser PX200 headphones â I banged them into Google and for some strange reason the EED web site came up at the top of the list ( cause someone had done a blog on them ).
Wow I thought â what a great site â what interesting people â what a quiet reflective type this Lurks character seems to beâ¦. I was wrong on all counts of course but, sadly, that didnât stop me joining up. Now if you continue to follow this thread you get to the fact that the only reason Lurks now lives in a strange place by the sea across the road to me is also because of the holy PX200âsâ¦.but hey! Lets not get too anal right?
What most of you donât know however is that I have a bit of head/earphone fetish and seem to spend vast sums of money on what ever is the new best thingâ¦since the PX200âs the Houmous lugholes have graced many other sound devices including Etymotic Research earpieces ( donât ask how much ), Sony MDR 7502âs ( my small headphones are kewl in the gym phase ) and lets not forget the old favourite â the Shure e4câsâ¦
Now Iâm not saying that these listening devices arenât any good, but lets just say that they didnât make me fall to my knees looking around for something to sacrifice to the God of Sound.
However, the purpose of this blog my friends is that I can now announce that I have found them -I have found the god of all listening devices â I have found - DAH ONE!
The Ultimate Ears Super.fi 5Pro donât particularly look amazing , although they do have a nice system involving a piece of wire in the cable to make them sit real good in the ears, butâ¦.the sound, my god, the sound â its like a flock of seagulls flying out your arse â and its matched only by the quality of the external sound isolation â I swear â I cannot hear a word the ticket inspector is saying!
The engineering principle is that each earbud contains two armatures, one to handle the bass and one to handle mids and trebles â the effect is just fucking amazing!
They weigh in at Â£146 including postage and you can get them here. Sell what ever the fuck you are using on Ebay and get some â now!
