Love it Jude.  I'm looking forward to the next installment.

Good idea, hopefully we will see these more than the newsletter.

Great idea! Would love to see more of these things. Could use some more montage magic though. regular_smile .gif And a theme song! Jingle?

I'm 100% Irish.  I thought the freckles would have given that away.  wink.gif

 

As for the montage magic:  I'm trying to keep these as simple as possible, so that we can more easily produce them.  As we get better at it--assuming we get better at it--we'll probably get more adventurous.
 

Regarding a theme song:  I'm going to see what I can do about getting some music.  It might take a while, though; so, for now, it's just straight to my manly man voice.

Yes, we plan on making this and future episodes available via iTunes.  I'll let you know when that's set.

Yes, the stentorian, James Earl Jones presence of my voice is shocking at first (I'm kidding).  My voice sounds a bit different when I'm talking loud than when I'm talking in a more conversational voice--and I was talking loud in this one.

 

That said, I'm curious what you were expecting.  LOL.

eg.This one tell us how the AKG K702 is made.

Video of gatherings/meetings will also be nice, as head-fi members are all over the world and probably most of us cannot attend but love to see what's going on.

 

my 1 cent.


Several years ago I went to Ireland and visited Sennheiser's remarkable factory there.  I wasn't allowed to shoot much in the way of photos there (due to trade secrets, etc., and if you saw the place you'd understand why), so I'm not sure if they'd let me shoot video.  Next time I make it back that way, I'll stop in and see (though there are no immediate plans to be out that way).  Wadia is nearby, so maybe we can go shoot some video there.

 

As for gatherings/meets, I think that would be fun.  I think we're due for a meet here in the Metro Detroit area sometime soon, so I may start with some footage from that.  Trade shows could be fun, too.  There's RMAF in October, and CES next January.

Jude it's kind of funny but you look really PO'd in the still frame before you start the video beyersmile.png


With YouTube, you have a choice of a few different screen captures to choose for that.  That was the goofiest looking one, so I went with it.

The moderator initiation ceremony is not for public discussion.  Do not bring it up in the forums again.

Isn't that desktop image on my computer's monitor (in the video) one you created?  No wonder you want to see this thing in HD.  wink.gif

 

(Great desktop image, by the way--thanks so much for that.)

 

As for all the requests for HD:  We may do that.  But then you might realize my skin isn't flawless and porcelain-like.

We just shot some unboxing video today (of the Practical Devices XM6, and the Cypher Labs Algorhythm Solo).

 

I've never had occasion to shoot an unboxing video before, so we'll see how it turns out.

Make sure that you give adequate attention to the budget segment, especially cheap mods. My $26 modded Koss KSC75 sounds at least $50, and would be enough for me if I didn't really love good sound. People love the inexpensive gems as well as the all out champions. I am sure you will give the upcoming multi (ten) thousand dollar Sennneheiser Orpheus 2 a great review, as well as the Audeze LCD-3 and the Hifiman HE-7. A man has to dream!beerchug.gif


We might open up the submission of videos from the community.  When I put a wrench to something, it usually stops working somewhere in the process, and I can't solder worth a penny--so if we're going to do modification and DIY videos, it'll probably come from community video submissions.

 

Who told you about the Orpheus 2, LCD-3 and HE-7?  All three sound fantastic, by the way.  (I'm kidding, of course.)

No, it's a Hamilton.  I love it, because it lets me keep track of time in three different timezones, which is very helpful for me.

You'll see more newsletters soon, too.

 

Earlier someone mentioned the Head-Fi Magazine we were going to do.  That project had to be shelved, as the person who was going to do all the graphics and layout was unexpectedly called away for intense work-related assignments.  So I then tried working it in Adobe InDesign myself, and the results were (to put it mildly) really bad.

 

The video is much easier to do (thanks mostly to joe).  And since videos are generally expected to be shorter (we're going to try to keep each episode to well under ten minutes), we're forced to keep it really simple.  I like that.  The way a typical day goes for me, simple is very good.

 

As for the video quality:  Again, we may do HD-quality videos.  However, because I may occasionally shoot videos with whatever camera I have on hand, some segments might end up being shot with compact cameras, or even my phone; so the video quality may vary, and some audio may be stereo, while others are in mono--again, depending on what we're using at the time.

 

Thanks so much for the positive reception, all.

 

Again, we just shot a couple of unboxings today, and expect to put out another short video next week, so please stay tuned!

Oh right on! I didn't even realize, definitely want HD now!

 

If in the near future you're looking to make some kind of an intro (like Diggnation) give me a shout, I can help with the graphics.

Hah, I'm Asian too and have actually managed to convince people I'm Irish... for some random reason I can do a very good Irish accent. I don't know why.

 

As for the voice, I guess I was expecting something more... Asian? You sound like you were born here or at least moved here at a relatively young age. Not that I should judge; I'm Canadian born and have been told I sound like I have the voice of a black preacher when I'm on the radio.

 

I'm really curious about the XM6... Practical Devices has done a rather underwhelming job of promoting their new product and impressions/reviews are scarce.

Its nice to see how the community is growing, good job guys! Subscribed! 

post #70 of 105

This is awesome!

 

I love me some podcasts and anytime places like Tekzilla and so on mention audiophile headphones it's really only Sony V6/V7xxx and K701... Which make me want to punch babies and throw puppies off cliffs.

post #71 of 105

Lulz.. I never knew Jude was an administrator up until now.. Silly me haha


 

post #72 of 105

Another reason to call Head-Fi my home when I want to get away from home.

 

I'm hoping that as further videos are produced, they feature close shots of gear in hand (or on head) to help viewers get a sense for the material nature of the thing?  Review videos, for example, won't have to be long - just dynamic in the way they present information.  I like Runner's World's videos of running shoes they review as an example of packing lots of pertinent information into a short spot: http://www.runnersworld.com/article/0,7120,s6-240-400--13825-0,00.html

 

I think I'm echoing some of the other hopes and uncertainties others have for maximizing this new form; I guess we all have great expectations for what can be done with it!

Great job Jude! This will help all us noobs get a more hands on 'idea' of the equipment we hope to get ... soon tongue_smile.gif

Thanks for all the time+effort you put into Head-Fi so we can all enjoy! (as we both know, time is a scarce commodity when you are a parent!!)
