a small conversation with Kiteki
 
[11:58:50 a.m.] Kiteki: I'm making corn now
[11:59:42 a.m.] J·Mc: corn flakes?
[11:59:46 a.m.] J·Mc: corn dogs?
[11:59:51 a.m.] J·Mc: pop corn
[11:59:52 a.m.] Kiteki: no just corn...
[11:59:58 a.m.] Kiteki: in boiling water
[12:00:09 p.m.] Kiteki: with salt
[12:00:17 p.m.] Kiteki: that is what I eat... so I can afford audio

my personal fav is still "Head-Fi, the only place where you can plug headphones into a laptop, have them not work, and say "thank goodness it's just the laptop"" biggrin.gif

Out of the many funny conversations I've come across on Head-Fi, I particularly enjoyed this short thread: Best headphones for Sigur Ros + dancing around with?

Everything is possible to be the GOAT (greatest of all time). Since I am at my factory obsessing on the details of a future product, I decided to have my project manager do some research on this.

 

QUESTION:

How much is a goat, and can we use include one with Crossfade M-80 or a future product

 

ANSWER:

A real GOAT would be about $150, sorry that is too much to include as a promotional or included accessory.  But fortunately, the MOQ (minimum order quantity) is only ONE.  So, therefore, we may be able to include one FOR YOU with the purchase of 12 Crossfade M-80s, if you agree to give up the other gifts.

 

EDIT - (and pay for HANDLING + shipping, FOB F "freight on board, Farm".

 

This is an example of our commitment to the customer...

From the new Shure flagship thread:

They were included. They were initially raved about, then began to suck when the LCD-2 came along, and now the LCD-2 sucks because the LCD-3 has arrived in town. And everything sucks because the Stax 009 exists. For $5000, you can find out if you too agree with a handful of others. If you follow the pattern, the high opinions have gone down but the price has not. So some of the $300-$500 dollar 'phones now sound like they now compete with these failing flagships. And these new Shures will compete with the best for two weeks then gradually become worse than the SRH940, which some hate, so for those folks, gradually become worse than the SRH840. You get the picture.

^ Wow, that's pretty much the portable forum's spitting image. Good to see there's consistency in Head-Fi.

 

I think this one is worth quoting too:

This whole thread cracks me up. Well done, well found.

... The difference is particularly apparent in the bass range, where the FS sound feels warmer and rolls into your ear as opposed to the crisp and at times almost clinical sound of digital drivers.

By your logic, rather than do some research, journalists could invent words for everything; it wouldn't matter, since people who already know what they're talking about would understand anyway.

No, "digital" cannot mean that. If you invent your own meanings for words, you cannot communicate. Your definition doesn't even fit the use of the word in this article, since the journalist was talking about drivers, not sound. Digital drivers don't exist (unless, maybe, we choose to call thus the drivers used by computers to connect to peripherals). Digital sound exists, but has nothing to do with your very personal definition.

*sigh* No, it cannot mean that. Neither a balanced armature transducer nor a moving coil (dynamic) transducer reproduces sound digitally. Both actually work on similar principles.

 

Look, I'd rather call a cat a cat, but if you want to call it a dog or a chipmunk, that's your choice. As for me, I've wasted enough time already, so feel free to conclude this discussion in whatever way you see fit.

And I'm pretty sure you may not want that.

LOL!  ^  Is that from the sound science forum?  wink_face.gif

^^ WOW! That has to be one of the most absurd conversation I ever witnessed.
