This...does nothing, actually.

Correct, this won't magically restore the lost information...

Bet you dollars to donuts there's at least one person on here who will swear up and down that it does.

Same, though while it most certainly is ONE of the reasons, it's not the only. HTC makes pretty junky phones. Though this conversation is for another topic, on another forum.

 

You know you're an audiophile when the only reason you want a haircut is so your headphones will seal better... these damned sideburns get in the way of everything.

...when you're at a social event in a restaurant and the guy next to you asks: "so what do you do on your spare time?" You reply: "well, I'm an audiophile, so I spend a lot of time reading about audio gear in general"; and then you have a 10 minute conversation about headphones and music in general.

Just to clear things up. Is it truly a conversation? Or just a monologue?

It really was a conversation. XD

He mentioned that he found a lot of references to Head-Fi while looking up information for headphones and I was like "yup, Head-Fi is a pretty popular place to find information about audio gear...I'm a member myself".

Then we were talking about our music preferences and "top 40", modern pop music.

Dude... It'll get confiscated for sure that way... Better bring some light reading as alternative in-flight entertainment. Religious scriptures are a great way to pass the time... biggrin.gif
