    Noise cancelling in ear or on ear headphones at noisy places

    What's your budget? I've been using Audio technica ATH-ANC23 for a few years now. It is really good - I've missed station announcements on the Kolkata metro & Mumbai locals a few times and got down one or two stations further from my destination.

    Storage Solutions Large capacity External Hard Drives

    You're right. I want to invert it so the single drive has backups of all the data on my smaller drives. I'm looking at a WD 8TB drive on amazon.com which comes to $300 including shipping & duties.

    Does Massdrop ship to India?

    Does massdrop ship to India? And the customs duty + shipping cost will be quite high.

    Audio Interference on signature acoustics o-16

    I purchased a pair of o16 IEMs in December and was quite pleased with their performance. However for the past couple of weeks, there has been a constant buzzing sound in the left earpiece with all sources (FiiO X1, OnePlus One, iPhone 6, MacBook air and Vaio Pro laptop). I tried contacting...

    Audio DAC for Swans M10

    I bought a pair of Swans M10 speakers from hifinage in August and have been enjoying them ever since. I want to add a DAC to my setup since I feel my laptop audio is not good enough for the speakers. Any suggestions? My budget is under Rs. 10000 and I'm open to importing it if need be.

    Budget 10-15K Phone mainly for reading & mail/chat

    Thanks for the reco, but I feel anything over 200g is too heavy for reading on the train and in bed. I had a Nook HD+ tablet - brilliant screen for reading but too heavy - which I gave to my brother. Note 2 & 3 offer the perfect mix of good reading experience + battery + normal phone features...

    Budget 10-15K Phone mainly for reading & mail/chat

    I don't want a second hand device. Looked at Micromax, it's way too flimsy and fragile for my liking. Not going near local manufacturers. So I see two options: 1. wait for the Note 3 to release and save up to buy it in a month or two; 2. Get a Nexus 4 from US. I'll decide next week once the...

    Budget 10-15K Phone mainly for reading & mail/chat

    But it has only a 4 inch screen. Friend has it, not good enough for Kindle & Pocket apps (which are my most used apps).
