Dig it, Jude!

post #17 of 68

I believe that was $300 on top of the price for the headphones themselves right?

post #18 of 68

I think the recent Fostex HP-P1 can be considered a competitor for the Algorithm Solo

 

Edit: Another congratulations, the Head-Fi TV production is expanding with each new episode.

Checking on their site, looks like the case. colouring alone normally costs about 2-300 dollars.

In that case, I hope it's full of chocolate.

 

 

Again, still very much digging the episodes. Considering the Q&A format of this episode, I figure a question is appropriate: will you consider pitching Head-Fi TV to a webTV company (like Revision3) in the future? I figure it may provide additional revenue and awareness.

sorry for chiming in.

any word on another way other then youtube to disseminate episodes? I'm having problems in China. It's not very legal to go on youtube.

Maybe i'm ignorant in suggesting this, but iTunes? Jude mentioned he would start streaming episodes through it soon, so maybe he can add older ones too. I'm sorry, I don't know what's Chinas view of iTunes and how easy it would be to access it, but I hope it works.

Your best work so far Jude, the camera loves you =)

 

I loved the idea of Head-Fi 101, it will be great for people trying to get info that isn't in the Wiki or just not explicit enough around posts. Really a good thing that shows this forum isn't dedicated to audio veterans.

 

I was just kind of amazed at seeing those Beats Pro in your desk, with the logo clearly facing the lense. They aren't exactly regarded as good and are probably knwon to be one the worst quality-price ratios ever, so I started wondering what got you to chose that particular line of headphones to be there.

nice job as ALWAYS Jude!!

Incidentally, TTVJ is now carrying the Beyer DT 1350 and apparently has them in stock.

post #27 of 68

You responded to my comment and yet you ignored my question. confused.gif

 

Does the aftermarket ALO cable running from the iPod to the Solo's USB affect the sound quality vs the stock iPod to USB cable or not?

Linky?  I can't seem to find them...

Itunes would work fine, as long as you have it set to the US. Anything like blogs don't work really well. Anything remotely related to Tibet or Taiwan gets censored (yea, even if Jude says "This product is made in Taiwan", it might get blocked.) but it's not that serious.

Though I can't yet say exactly when, I think it'll be quite soon.

You said there wasn't a competitor to the Algorythm Solo.  Would you consider the Fostex amp/dac combo (hp-p1), in the same family?  Or is it too soon to judge?

 

I hooked on Head-Fi TV, BTW...

You must have missed the annotation I added to the video at 5:20 of the video (in the bottom-right corner of the video).  I didn't realize the Fostex was actually available until just after we finished the video.

Yes, it'll be covered in a future episode (along with a few other headphones in that episode).

I'm sorry I haven't checked yet.  From what others are posting, it does seem like the white HD25 may not be readily available via Sennheiser and/or Colorware at this time.  If I find out anything different, I'll let you know.  Based on what I did see at Colorware (with other custom-colored products they offer), it appears that, if this is (or does become) available, that it might be rather expensive to have done.

 

I wish I had definitively better news on this, guys.  Again, if I find out anything else, I'll post it.  (And if anybody else finds out anything else first, please post it.)

That's very nice of you to suggest this, Landis--thanks for the vote of confidence.  I think, though, that we're a long way from qualifying for Revision3.  I think the hosts--not to mention the production value--of their shows are well ahead of where we are right now.  We'll keep working to improve what we're doing, though.

loremipsum, I have so far only used the ALO cable, so I can't yet answer your question.  If I do a comparison, I'll let you know what I think.

crayonhead, hopefully when we get these episodes on iTunes you'll be able to see them.
