several reasons, its either the wire on the right side has been shorted or disconnected, its definitely on the plug side which is prone to breakage. mahirap mag fix pag nasira yung sa earphone side, mas ok if yung plug lang yung sira :D

personally, buying (or assembling) a cmoy amp is a better investment kesa bumili ng expensive headsets, a cmoy amp makes even cheap headsets sound fantastic, syempre the better the head/earphones the better it will sound in conjunction with a cmoy amp but if medyo gipit sa budget, a cmoy amp with a reasonably priced headset will sound approximately like more expensive models

ano tawag dun sa nasa ilalim ng mp3/music player? un ba ung amplifier? hmmm
i mean nakakaganda ba ng quality un? naririnig ko naman kung pangit or maganda quality pero di ko pa kasi ntry ung ganyan kaya di ko din masabi..

anyway, ano ba ang magandang sound quality.. flac + good headphone/earphone + amplifier?

pag flac kasi bro or any lossless format, sigurado ka na wala theoretical effect sa sound yung compression nung original music file. so kung maganda quality nung original file, 100% yung theoretical sound from the original na naririnig mo.

kaso malaki ang file size compared to the popular mp3 format.

you can personally convert a cd music file you own to flac and mp3 with various bit rates to check kung ano yung passable quality for you. more compression = smaller file size = worse sound quality.

depende din sa music gear mo kasi. kung di naman kaya nung present gear mo yung magandang resolution, baka pareho lang yung tunog ng 128kbs mp3 sa flac. so useless din mag flac ka. sayang lang sa space.

typically may mga hiss and pop and crackles ang mga low bitrate rip. kung rinig mo sya sa setup mo at di mo gusto, choose a higher bitrate setting sa conversion, or go lossless (flac). yun nga lang kung maliit ang space mo konti lang malalagay mo sa player mo bro.   

remember na yung basis is the original file. kung pangit ang original file quality (128kbs mp3 tapos converted to flac), kahit lossless format pa yan, pangit pa rin yan :)

so make sure at least cd quality ang source before you rip. or download reliable lossless legal material saka mo sya convert.

and to add dun sa explanation above, yung amplifier is useful sa mga high impedance na headphones, mahirap kasi sya i-drive so dapat may amplifier.

about sa quality ng amp naman, may ibang tao gusto yung colored sound na dinagdag ng ibang amp, may iba naman na transparent, it depends on your preference

amp 1

amp 2

reasons to have an amp

Quote
High impedance cans will usually need more voltage to get up to a solid listening level, so they will often benefit from an amp, especially with portable players that have limited voltage available from their internal batteries. But low impedance cans may require more current, and will lower the damping factor between the amp and headphones. So while low impedance headphones may be driven loud enough from a portable player, the quality of sound may be dramatically improved with an amp.

ngaun kasi balak ko gumamit ng custom OS sa galaxy tab para masupport ung flac. gingerbread lang kasi ung tab ko eh.

bumili ako ng CD sa mall. astroplus ata or ody
merung CD's na for audiophile merun namang hindi. ibig sabihin magaiba pa sila ng quality kahit original pareho?
my nabili naman ako 500php 6CD's na ng classical pieces. so baka hindi ganon kaganda quality nun dahil 6in1 ung CD eh.

here's a link bro to explain the advantages of an "audiophile grade" CD. it still basically boils down to the source content: better quality if the original master tapes were used in the mastering process.

http://www.audiophilecds.com/

---

as for using an amp with your in-ears, you can see bro jmwreck uses earphones with a portable amp. even headphones and in-ears can benefit from a portable amp. you might want to audition one with your in-ears and listen if you like the sound better. you can also read headphone forums (both local and international ones) to check what are the portable amps that have good synergy with your particular in-ears so you can be guided on what to try out. there are also headphone meets organized locally where you can try out the gear of other people for free :)

of course, making sure that your source (music) is of good quality is the first step. once you have great quality audio and an adequate player, that's when it is best to audition hi-fi gear :)

try mo JetAudio sa Android kung supported ng tab mo
yan ang gamit ko sa Galaxy Ace ko kaya nga ang FLAC

pero gamit ko sa protable rig ko ay 320 kbps MP3 lang dahil di kasya sa SD card yung mga playlist ko :lol:

sa PC foobar2000 + FLAC = perfect harmony  :lol:


BTT: may nag bebenta ba dito ng Mogami Star quad cable?

nag recable kasi ako ng HD201 na mahigit two years di nagamit kaya nag disintegrate yung cable
may nakita akong multi conductor cable dito yung ang ginamit ko naging sobrang bulky nya haha  :-D
