    You may want to ask this same thing in the Guitar Thread. :)

    As a quick aside, not sure why you'd specifically want to buy from Gear4Music. I don't know who else you have available in Denmark though. :)

    Anyone got any experience with buying a mid-range CD player? I've got a fairly nice little setup now, but my CD player is by far and away the weakest component. It's a Cambridge Audio Topaz or something, which is the cheapest one they make.

    I was looking at upgrading to something around the £500 range, but I don't know how much difference that will make with a CD player. It looks like, at that range, I also have the choice of buying a CD player (sometimes a streamer is built in too) or buying a CD transport and DAC.

    Any thoughts?

    Looking for a pair of earbuds/IEMs. Under 80 dollars or so. I see I have a decent amount of choices but I'm mainly concerned with durability. Thoughts?

    Frankly speaking, I usually listen to music on the tape recorder in the car, because my job is linked with frequent trips and I am often driving, so there are no many variants. But honestly, for our living room, I ordered a victrola record player vintage that is a real art object and really cool incidental music. So, when we have parties, or a romantic evening with my soulmate we choose vinyl according to our mood and it is a perfect phone for a pleasant time. Indeed, such music is very special and creates a specific atmosphere set you up for relaxation, and gives a special zest to the evening.

    I really like my Jabra elite headphones I've had them a few years now and they still work good. They're true wireless so no wire at all. Mostly just wear them to the gym but they stay in good whenever I'm on the treadmill.

    Well, that’s my Apple wired earphones packed in. I want to buy new wireless in earphones. I don’t usually buy wireless in earphones but have decided to make the switch. Anyone have recommendations? I’m not looking to spend more than £80. I get student discount at the moment too so I could potentially get money off any that are recommended. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    a lot of people talk wonders about the sound quality of campbridge audio melomania 1, and I almost certainly bought them to go for a run. It's less than 100 €.

    Thank you for this. I really appreciate it. Will definitely check these out. I can honestly say I’ve never heard of this brand before.

    Still bothering.

    What would people say are good over-ear wireless (noise-cancelling) headphones these days?

    I have a pair of sennheiser pxc 550, which I now see have been followed up with a sequel. They’re on the pricier side but if that’s within your range I would recommend them.

    I have the Bose 700 and in active cancellation, they are the kings.
    Something cheaper, a good IEM can function properly adjusted.

    Just got some Sony XM3s and they sound amazing. I definitely think they sound better than the Bose QC 35II and Bose Soundlink II headphones, with superior features and ANC. But the one drawback.. they're so much more uncomfortable.

    The Sony's squeeze my head, make my ears feel hot and uncomfortable after a half hour to an hour, and the head strap doesn't rest super comfortably on top of my head. Being heavier probably doesn't help. I could wear either of those Bose all day on an 8 hour shift at work, and I can't see that happening with the Sony's. If they were more comfortable they'd be perfect

    I haven’t had any issues with the xm4s when it comes to comfort.
