Well I didn't know anything about headphones when I bought them... as I said I've been trying to sell them to some of my friends. Its just... well I was talking about this in my most recent post.... the other headphones (Shure 850's and Audio Technica M45's, for example) don't seem as "lively" as the Beats, for some reason. I can't understand it myself, maybe it has to do with something like burn in? They were on display at Guitar Center and I honestly couldn't understand why they sounded like that.

They are old growth maple, from an Amish sawmill in Maryland.  They are air dried, rather than kiln dried.  This keeps them from drying out and possibly warping (although at 2 inches thick, warping would seem unlikely!).  They are coated with a clear lacquer, not a polyurethane.  

 

Although it may be slightly overkill, I love how heavy and solid it is.  I'm not sure about all of the sonic improvements Mapleshade claims these racks provide, but it is definitely a vibration killer, and it looks great, as well. 

 

More info about these racks can be found here:  http://shop.mapleshadestore.com/Equipment-Racks/departments/16/

Wow what awesome racks.  If the chance arises, I may have to snatch me up one.

Thanks! I just ordered it from amazon for $33 shipped. Wasn't looking for a laptop stand but heh, when you see something nice, gotta go for it!

Sure wouldn't throw me off... LOL... does it look weird or something?

 

It depresses me sometimes how there are no high-quality left-handed ergonomic gaming mice sometimes... got to get the ambidextrous ones :'(

Off topic, but are you familiar with the idea that all left handed people were in fact twins and are pure evil? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vanishing_twin

Umm... well I hear they were "unlucky." And associated with the act of the Devil... not quite what you put it... But I do know some of the Middle-East still agrees with that assumption.

 

Do people really still believe in that? LOL. I wouldn't care less anyhow, I'm the type of person who enjoys being myself and being unique for who I am. :)

ROFL (sorry for going off-topic) I looked at that EXACT MOUSE. I got mine as last year's Christmas present, for about $80 (expensive mice these days... but I guess you could call me a miceophile :P)   It came out a few months after I got mine, and the DPI rate isn't as high... mine is something like 5600 DPI and that one is like 3600, plus mine has 6 special programable hotkeys! (that one only had 2) So yeah, I think I got the better deal anyhow...

Hahaha, my iPod, you're greatest nightmare. Mind you I'm no audiophile, I don't even have an amp let alone a good pair of 'phones. Although I am selling my Dr. Dre Solo HD's for either the Ath-M50 or the Srh750dj... but that will be later on. But oh well... I guess its ok to post :)

The Creative I-Trigue 2200. There's a newer version of them, those speakers are 6 years old and still look like they're brand new out of the box excluding some dust and scratches. :D

 

Very nice $100< speakers at the time, although I can't really remember buying them...

post #163 of 18814

OMG OMG OMG YOU HAVE THE RAZER VESPULA!!!!!!! I WANT THAT SO BADDDDDD. (But its $50, lol rip-off)

 

The Asus G73JH will NEVA beat the Asus G51jx-A1. :D    Don't see why you'd have an extra keyboard though... the laptop keyboard already comes with plenty of Fn + # hotkeys already.
