My first IEM were "Koss Spark Plug" ( 2 pairs ) and I thought they were good, but after trying EP-630 I forgot "Plugs" like a horrible nightmare. These came with my Dell XPS 1530 and I tried them for the first time and really was impressed.

Creative EP-830 Noise Isolating Earphones Very disappointed with these earphones, i bought them off the back of very good reviews i had read. Headphones Arrived quickly. Earphones work very well but no good if your lug holes are smaller than the average person.

The silicone fittings are changeable so you can choose the right size for your ears. Bad thing about that is that they tend to fall off now and then. i used egg saver and got it in 4 days....not that bad as i thought it would be 1. good bass ; 2. crisp sound ; 3.

I must be a compulsive headphone buyer. I have a lot of headphones at home, most inexpensive and not all are being used.

Sound quality??? After reading other review I am extremely surprised at what I am listening to. Small price for big sound For $16.00, what can you say! I was quite pleased with the sound for such a small price. For this great price, not bad So I ordered these on Monday, early morning and after the item was finally shipped.

Amazing Creative EP-630 In-Ear Noise-Isolating Headphones (Black) I got a pair of these when I ordered my XPS computer system back in 2008.

"Well, after using fm mods i decided that it was time to move on and buy something else. i had 2 choices 1. "This is my 3rd tape adapter for my iPod - first was Monster Cable, then Dynex (?) - which was the worst, and now this Sony one.
Atlas33 7:28am on Sunday, April 25th, 2010 
The only issue that I have found is that the rubber ear buds can compress at times - I simply pull them back out, but it can be anoying at times.

Operating through a Repeater
Normally, you will operate the IC-208H through repeater frequencies that have been preprogrammed into the radios Memory channels. However, the occasion may arise in which you need to operate through a repeater that has not been pre-programmed. This section instructs you in setting up the IC-208H to operate through a repeater. 1. Activate VFO mode: Press [V/MHzSCAN] to activate the VFO mode. 2. Select the Frequency Band: See Selecting a Frequency Band for instructions. 3. Set the Receive Frequency: See Operating in VFO Mode for instructions. This is the frequency on which your radio receives the repeaters transmissions. (For example, you will receive the Tarrant County R.A.C.E.S. repeater on 146.940 MHz.) 4. If necessary, Set the Repeater Shift:
Note: If the Auto Repeater Function is set to On and the repeater uses a standard repeater shift, this step will not be necessary as the IC-208H will automatically set the shift. To manually set the repeater shift: Press and hold [LOWDUP] for 1 sec., once or twice, to select minus duplex or plus duplex shift. For minus duplex, DUP appears on the LCD screen. The repeaters receive freq. is set lower than its transmit frequency. For plus duplex, DUP appears on the LCD screen. The repeaters receive freq. is set higher than its transmit frequency. If the repeater uses an offset frequency amount other than 0.6 MHz for 2m band or 5 MHz for 70cm band, manually set the offset in Step 5. Example: Set the 146.940 repeater shift to minus duplex DUP. This sets the repeaters receive frequency to 146.340 MHz.
5. If necessary, Set the Repeater Offset Frequency Amount:
Note: This step is only necessary if the repeaters offset frequency is an amount other than 0.6 MHz on the 2m band or 5 MHz on the 70cm band. a. Press [SETLOCK] to activate Set mode. b. If necessary, rotate [DIAL] to select SET. c. Press [SETLOCK] one or more times until DUP and offset frequency appear. d. Rotate [DIAL] to select the offset frequency. e. Press [TONET-SCAN] to set the offset and exit Set mode.

I Packet operation

D Data speed
For packet operation, the transceiver can be set to one of two data speeds: 1200 bps or 9600 bps. q While pushing [SETLOCK], push [PWR] for 1 sec. to enter initial set mode. w Push [SETLOCK] or [S.MWMW] to select the BPS item. e Rotate [DIAL] to select the desired data speed.

t AF OUT

r Push [PWR] to exit initial set mode. For 1200 bps operation Disconnect the microphone plug from the microphone connector during data transmission, otherwise the data signal and voice signal are simultaneously transmitted. For 9600 bps operation When the transceiver is set for 9600 bps data transmission in set mode, the microphone signal is automatically cut. Therefore, it is not necessary to disconnect the microphone plug from the connector in this case. When pushing [PTT] during data transmission, data transmission is interrupted and voice signals have priority. 71
w Set the TNC for transmit. e Set transmit delay on the TNC. r Adjust the TNC frequency deviation if necessary. When using a deviation meter: Adjust the output of the TNC so that frequency deviation is in the range 3 to 4 kHz. When NOT using a deviation meter: A receiver or transceiver is needed to monitor the transmissioncompare the received audio output level when receiving a TNC modulated signal with high level voice signals using the microphone. Then adjust the TNC modulated signal to a lower level than the voice modulated signal.
Read the instructions supplied with your TNC carefully before attempting packet operation with the transceiver. Pin t AF OUT is for 1200 bps operation only. This pin cannot be used for 9600 bps operation. Over modulation may degrade signal quality. If you nd that many transmissions are failing, re-adjust the modulation level.
D 9600 bps high speed packet operation
The transceiver supports 2 modes of 9600 bps packet operation: G3RUH and GMSK. q Connect the transceiver and a TNC as illustrated below.
TNC side q DATA IN w GND e PTT P r DATA OUT TX AUDIO GND
When using the PTT P terminal for packet operation, no voice signals are transmitted from the microphone. When pushing [PTT] during data transmission, data transmission is interrupted and the voice signal takes priority. Read the instructions supplied with your TNC carefully before attempting packet operation with the transceiver. Pin r DATA OUT is for 9600 bps operation only. This pin cannot be used for 1200 bps operation.

y P SQL

RX AUDIO PTT SQL
w G3RUH mode can handle 16 kinds of modulated wave forms in order to maintain a communication link. e Set transmit delay on the TNC. r Adjust the TNC frequency deviation if necessary (see page at right).
OTHER FUNCTIONS D Adjusting the transmit signal output from the TNC
When setting data transmission speed to 9600 bps, the data signal coming from the TNC is applied exclusively to the internal limiter circuitry to automatically maintain band width. NEVER apply data levels from the TNC of over the acceptable level below, otherwise the transceiver will not be able to maintain the band width and may possibly interfere with other stations. 1. When using a level meter or synchroscope, adjust the TX audio output level (DATA IN level) from the TNC as follows.
2 Vp-p (1 Vrms) 1 Vp-p3 Vp-p (0.51.5 Vrms) : recommended level : acceptable level
2. When NOT using a measuring device. q Connect the transceiver to a TNC. w Enter a test mode (CAL, etc.) on the TNC, then transmit some test data. e When the transceiver fails to transmit the test data or transmits sporadically (TX indicator doesnt appear or ashes): - Decrease the TNC output level until the transmit indicator lights continuously. When transmission is not successful even though the TX indicator lights continuously: - Increase the TNC output level. 74
