Look, I would bet my 2 kids lives on blind testing some of these people who reckon they can tell the difference apart between a M2, PD, M, P1 and S. No.. I'm not being funny, I'm being deadly serious. I would love to see this actually done irl, I think the results would be startling.

And to make things interesting I bet I could mildly tweak a Cowon DSP effect here or there on a lower end device that will give the illusion to making it sound 'airy', 'spacious', more 'organic' therefore it must be the Plenue S! Um.. nop... i just left the other 3 DAPs in normal mode and tweaked the PD slightly. Do you see what I'm saying?

I will be the FIRST to admit that I too have suffered New Toy Syndrome. You have just spent $$$ on a new DAP, so it must be better right? Or yer listening to a 4 figure DAP therefore you look stupid to being all like '... meh' over it, u must be stupid and bad of hearing.

 

Blind testing. That's where the truth lies, funny how it is absolutely never ever ever done on head fi, anywhere. That's what should be flooding the boards, not peoples opinions on sound quality which is the most subjective thing there is. We're not talking a few $$ difference here or there, we're talking 10x the price difference of some DAPs!! It's the same with abx testing, rarely a video or evidence of a user being able to distinguish bit rates apart to a satisfactory degree...

 

BruceBanner please show the court where on this doll the big bad expensive DAP touched you?

 

 

Old joke, but still made me grin

I know this answer. Since its head-fi, you buy them all.

I'd settle for a side-grade, but my shrink says that a total frontal lobotomy is still the only valid solution to my neuronal dilemma.    :blink:

Best part was when a gentleman walked up to try out the Dave and my friend warned him to beware as he would only end up wanting one and its "pricey", chap turns to him and says "its ok, I own the company".... I thought I recognized him, it was John Franks.

Apologies that this happens to be another Chord one - it's only because I happen to frequent those very active threads

"Oh it's just some cheap old thing I found at a garage sale for $20...."


Totally agree.

The wife never even asked, "What's that?", "How much did it cost?" when I first brought home the Mojo, I was expecting an interrogation but no...

If I'm seen wearing a new pair of headphones which I thought she wouldn't even notice were new (same colour, size and style as my other pair) and straight away I get "Is that a new pair of headphones then?"

"Mojo great for husbands everywhere!" :-)

I have never used the word "farewell" in conversation. Also I have never heard anyone say that word too. Even in the movies, it's pretty much never used.

If I were to teach someone the English language, I would never teach that word because it's useless.

 

 

Probably not as popular in the US today as it was back then ;), but still...

Two come to mind for me:

1. Dude who ordered noble k10's but had no idea what customs were and tried to put tips on them:

2. Dude with so much earwax he clogged all the pores in his CIEMs upon first insertion:

The funniest aspect of that, to me, was how much it wound-up Mimouille!  (nothing against Mim' - it just surprised and amused me how irritated he became about it - it was comical in its own way).
