Up for sale is a pair of closed AKG headphones, the K271 Mk.II.  They are not very demanding and have great quality sound. They are great for traveling, or late nights when you don't want to disturb others, or in the studio.  These might be a good entry level pair of headphones for somebody looking to try out the AKG house sound.  I have too many pairs of headphones and these are the most under used pair in my collection, therefore I'm selling them to a good home so...
Up for sale is an almost brand new pair of AKG K612 Pro headphones.  After about a week of testing I feel these headphones aren't for me.  I bought these as a modern backup to my AKG K501.  While similar (like a cross of K501 and K701) they lack the soundstage I'm fond of.  They have a small but personal sized soundstage.  They are very fun and relaxed headphones that are easy on the ears and very comfortable.  Can listen for hours without fatigue.  These headphones are...
Up for sale is my AKG K141 Studio headphones that I bought on Head-Fi few years ago for $90 shipped.  I've recently upgrade my secondary pair of headphones to an AKG K271 Mk.II so I these (K141S) have to go!  They sound great, the ear pads are in great shape, the straight cable has a bit of the outer insulation near the mini-XLR connector pulling away (cosmetic issue).  I'm also including a brand new coiled cable I bought and a soft case which I had and modified to fit the...

Quote:   Personally I like to starting by tinning my wires (specially for strained wire) and when possible use a western union joint to join them, then solder them good and strong.  (There are other easier joints that work just as well once soldered, western unions are just habit for me).  Heatshrink is highly recommend, it's designed for that use (in electronics), there are a few other use cases.  Just choose the right one for your task and you should be golden...
  Killing the batteries isn't the reason you shouldn't solder directly to these batteries.  It's for the same reason you shouldn't dispose of them by fire, it just isn't safe.   You can buy tab batteries from sellers on eBay and else where.  Only buy from North American trusted sellers with a high positive feedback ratings.  I cannot recommend electrical tape as a smart solution.  I would advise learning to solder, it is a useful skill.  Tabbed batteries, or battery...
I just got an email informing me they fixed the issue.  Hopefully it's fixed!       UPDATE:  The new files are flawless.  Just redownload the OK Go album and make sure it matches the MD5 Hash 275eed026b85829edd28d9e83c54a31b and everything should be fine now.  Thanks to the always awesome Humble Bundle people!
They know about this issue and are working on solving it.        
I was planning to but since I was out on the weekend I didn't get a chance.  Being as it's late, it's something I plan to do tomorrow.  OK Go and The Humble Indie people are some of my favorites so I hope they'll step up and fix it proper.
The latest, the music one, is awesome but the FLAC files for the OK Go album "Twelve Remixes of Four Songs" are a non-standard modified FLAC format or just plainly corrupted.  They won't play in foobar, only VLC.  They are unable to modified to change tags to add things such as release year (pet peeve).  Any attempts to convert it to WAV then back to FLAC to fix the damaged file fail, either the program doesn't recognize it and fails or it tries to figure it out and it...
