The question I believe I need to answer is whether purchasing the Dirac HD Player for your stock iPhone earbuds is better than buying a new set of headphones. Well, if you could point me to $2.99 headphones that perform as well as the Dirac HD Player, I'd say no. But you are going to have to spend upwards of $40-$60 to get something that sounds as good as the Dirac HD player. While it can't turn your earbuds into $500 headphones, it can take something that sounds fairly horrible out of the box and make them sound so much better than you won't believe your ears. I know I didn't. Discuss "Dirac HD Player App for iPhone Earbuds Review" here. Read the article.
