Doesn't preordering the CD set net you the 320 instant DL?

I hardly think of the Social Network as a Trent Reznor album, lol. Atticus Ross' fingerprints are so indelibly imprinted into the sound that I don't even recognize Reznor's contribution sometimes.Then I listen to Year Zero and realize that Reznor's sound has really evolved over the years. *Certainly not a bad thing, I love this sound*

 

I'm listening to their collaboration on TGWDT right now. It's even better than I'd hoped.

I agree that Atticus Ross' sound was all over the Social Network soundtrack, and that's why I like TGWDT more. 

 

It sound a lot more like Trent at his best. Reminds me of the Ghost albums...which I love.

I heard mixed things about the Ghost albums. Perhaps I'll give them a swing myself. That's the problem with relying on other people's reviews and opinions - I end up missing out on things for no good reason.

I really like them. Very ambient and spooky stuff for the most part. I listen to them on long car rides at night...It gets really freaky sometimes.

Maybe one  day i can get ultimate ears, JH audio's, or westones :) custom molded :)



Don't buy the se215. They sound muddy and just plain lifeless. I never use my pair because they sound so bad.

I really love their buying scheme on this one. 

 

I've been listening to the ALAC copy I got for the big pre-order, but I'm really looking forward to the 24/96 copy.

Somehow the iems that I have used the most this year are a pair that I bought for under £20.  The klipsch image x1 (s2).  They aren't brilliant by any means but through a combination of factors have turned out to be the pair that I have the most hours on.  Got my three main pairs (klipsch x10i, westone 2 and Triple fi 10) reshelled to save on tips but due to poor fit have had to go back a second time.  As I'm in uk and fisher are in the states, this takes about 4 weeks each time!).  Keep meaning to get a better pair but do what I always do when trying to make a purchase.  Narrow it down to two possibilities and then paralyse myself unable to make the final decision.  That's how I've ended up with a pair of £20 iems as my main beater pair right now (that and the fact that the pair of shure se215's I bought broke twice and gave up).

 

Cheers.

Right now it's still the HD650's. Come this Saturday it'll be the AKG Q-701 with a Zombie X SXC cable.

Believe it or not, I'm actually using the ibuds. I haven't heard them for a while so I thought I'd try them again. A tiny bit more bass then I remember, but for any decent kind of bass I'd have push the buds in my ear canal. It actually sounded bassy without losing too much highs I pushed in them in the right place biggrin.gif
