Fiio E6 Headphone Amplifier - E6
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

1 out of 5 eggs buy something better 07/22/2015

This review is from: Fiio E6 Headphone Amplifier - E6

Pros: When it worked, the audio was amplified.

Cons: Worked twice. Will no longer charge or turn on.

Uses mini USB instead of micro USB (was aware of it though).

Other Thoughts: Was deciding between this and the Creative unit. I should have gone the other route...

Sennheiser HD518 On-Ear Headphones
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Great sounding audio 03/13/2015

This review is from: Sennheiser HD518 On-Ear Headphones

Pros: Very clean sound in all audio ranges without distortion. Very comfortable to wear. Completely covers my ears without pinching them. Android phone is powerful to drive them. Audio cable detachable/replaceable. Feel very durable, even for being plastic.

The style of music I listen to is everything from Progressive rock to death metal to classical music to techno. These headphones sound great regardless what I threw at them. I was even able to hear faint sounds in the music that I had not noticed was there on other brands of headphones that I've tried (Monster, Apple earbuds, etc).

Cons: Base is heavier than expected, but not overwhelming. You can hear everything outside the speakers; this can be a good or bad thing. Audio leakage at high volume. Audio cord is quite long and the adapter is huge. Not as much bling bling compared to brands such as Beats/Monster.

Other Thoughts: These are an excellent pair of headphones. At the sale price I had purchased them at, you cannot find a better set. At normal price, they will compete with anything else out there.
If you plan on using this for a handheld mp3 player, it is highly recommended that you replace the cable as it is quite long and the adapter is huge. They should have just included a second cable instead of the adapter.
If you plan on wearing these in a public place, I'd suggest finding a way to put a removable cover over the outside vents of the speakers. This will help with outside noise and audio leakage. I had placed my hands over them as a test and the audio was just as good; with just a little less bass. For me, this can give the best of both worlds since at times I still want to be able to hear my surroundings.

Google Chromecast HDMI Streaming Media Player (H2G2-42)
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Best investment made for cheap 01/29/2015

This review is from: Google Chromecast HDMI Streaming Media Player (H2G2-42)

Pros: Works great for streaming Netflix, Pandora, Google Music, Plex and tons of other apps from my computer, android phone, or wife's apple devices.
Can't really beat it for it's price compared to capability.

Cons: Only real issue, which is minor, is that chrome browser video playback can be choppy at times. I'd also like to see more apps supported, but it is continuing to improve in both situations.

Other Thoughts: Originally bought this at Best Buy with the idea that if it sucks, I'm only out $35. Since purchasing this, my wife has been using it non stop to watch her Taiwanese shows on the large plasma TV instead of her laptop or iPad.
The fact it works well with Plex and Netflix also means I don't need to run an extra long HDMI cable from my computer to the TV.
Ended up picking one up for my father for Christmas as well due to the amount of use I've personally had at home with it.
