 ^ I'm opposite. I actually think it kind of looks like a Playskool amp. To each his own!
 Had a similar situation, a co-worker was at my house one day and saw my headphone collection on the bookshelf. He asked- "are those better than beats?" I just nodded my head and said "yeah, little bit".
Same thing happened to my wife, she freaked out because she thought she was going deaf in one ear. Turns out it was 85% blocked with compacted wax. Doctor said best thing to do is gently wipe out your ears with a towel every time you step out of a hot shower and peroxide every few weeks. Right now my ears are popping badly from a sinus infection, so listening to music on headphones just hurts right now :(
Really trying to find a Tung-sol brand 5998 tube for my Bottlehead Crack, and can't seem to catch a break. I've tried ebay, but all they have are multiples, and/or they are grossly overpriced. If anyone out there with a spare they are willing to sell, please PM me!   Thanks!
Ahhh Gotcha, thanks guys!
When you guys say "wet" and "dry" what do you mean? Could you explain? I understand liquid, like liquid mids...is that the same as wet?
Only Shiit I've ever heard is a Magni/Modi, it sounded fine especially for price/performance but it doesn't effortlessly push the HD 650 the way the Crack does. It sounds amazingly dynamic and musical and fluid all at the same time. I try to stray from hype but it really is great. Even more so than my more expensive Darkvoice amp. I've read that the bass is markedly tightened depending on the tubes used in the Bottlehead (I haven't done much tube rolling yet). It's even...
Remiss indeed and no, certainly not biased at all! *ahem* But really, I still very much want to hear the HD 650 on the Lyr. But I can't imagine how it would/could possibly pull me away from my Crack addiction. And I still haven't even upgraded to a 5998 tube yet
I wouldn't use anything over $50-$75 for exercising/biking because you're asking for it in just a short time. I've literally peeled cable sheathing apart like a banana on some IEM's because of sweat and dirt.   I chuckle when I see bros at the gym using beats and other on-ears while pouring sweat. I'd hate to sniff those pads.
I was going to comment on some of the air of entitlement going on in here as well, just...maybe not as harsh.
