Fury - 8/10   Extremely realistic, but a bit heavy handed and they constantly wanted to drill into your brain that war is hell. Too much and it just wasn't convincing. Somehow the realism died at one point and it turned into some John Wayne Gung-Ho nonsense.   None of the characters were likable at all to me. It kind of sucks the life out of the movie. There was a good reason for all this and I totally understand why. The movie is kind of not an enjoyable movie and...
 I've had those too once. The hard part is finding them at a good price without paying too much on shipping.The HD-668B's I had were more V-shaped and focused less on the mid-range. I bet the DJ100 has flatter and more extended low bass though. The HD-668B seemed to have more treble and be a little thinner/tinny sounding. It all depends on preference though. HD-668B is pretty good though if you like it's signature. It's one headphone that didn't match my preferences but I...
Are the K400 EP pads the ones with the brown rings on the back? I get all confused about all the versions of the actual headphone.   One pair I have has a driver that looks exactly like a K500 driver. This came with non-brown ring pads that are quite a bit deeper than those of the brown ones. I think this one is an LP. I might have confused myself and will edit this later if so.   My 2nd pair came with those brown pads and I think it's an EP. It looks like a regular...
 I looked at the picture on that link above and to me they just look so much bigger than the DJ100. This is a very good thing IMO. Maybe those people just have tiny heads.It also seems like maybe the cups are much deeper. This could also have some sort of effect on the sound (an improvement). I guess we'll never know for sure until someone inspects them. The pads have a white fabric over them. Maybe they came up with some ideas to improve it over the DJ200/100. I sure hope...
Anyone have these on order? They just came out and i'm pretty excited to get a pair of them when I actually have money! They also have an aux input. If they didn't I'd have skipped them.   It looks similar to my favorite DJ100/200, but a bit bigger (for the bluetooth stuff) and best of all, it has memory foam pads!! If they're even bigger than the DJ200, then maybe the sound will be improved a little.   I actually like the idea of having a bluetooth headphone around....
Nice! More overpriced fashion headphones from Sennheiser. Let me guess, they will be priced at $349.99 partly because they "look cool" and the marketing gurus think you'll be willing to pay that.
 I could have sworn I read a lot of posts saying the Valhalla was surprisingly good with the K701 (and of course probably the K712). I know it makes no sense. The new version 2 should be even better. I hope it's like a Vali on steroids and without the ringing. Vali with the Q701 variations is quite impressive. About identical in sound to my favorite amp that cost $350+ (although..only with the Q701)If I was rich i'd go out and buy the Valhalla 2 and Lyr 2 and send back the...
Does anyone else think the Modi has very good and smooth treble? I don't know how it could be considered bright, harsh or treble happy. It's not at all for me and never has been. I think i've had it for maybe over a year now or more and it's been a keeper even after finding a better DAC.   The thing I noticed only after a year and with some very bright/trebly headphones is that it has much smoother treble than other DACs.   The T90 is especially good on the Modi, but...
Boyhood - ??/10...hmm maybe a 6.5   Entertainment value: 4/10   MINOR SPOILERS and this "review" is all over the place. I'm tired.   It's hard to put into a score my opinion of this movie. I really didn't love it at all and don't know if I want to endure it again. For me some scenes are just barely interesting enough to hold my attention. Why? Not sure since I have a super huge attention span. I think I could relate to a ton of things in here, but it just wasn't...
Hundred Foot Journey - 9/10   Not very original at all, but I enjoyed every single minute of this movie. It's the kind of movie I like. Many would want to judge this movie before even seeing it. Let's see...it's produced by Oprah and Spielberg and released by Disney...   I bought my mom a ticket to this and she likes it too.       Life Itself - 5.5/10   I always read Ebert's reviews and would check his website every Friday for new ones. I should have just read...
