I for one disliked bible black. Something about Dark themed H meets religion/rituals disturbs the carrots out of me.

So I had a conversation over on another forum about IEMs vs. Headphones... I thought I'd post my concise pro/con list and see if anyone else had anything to add to it:

 

Pros:
- Isolation: Some IEMs isolate better than earplugs. Because of this, sometimes it's easier to hear micro details if there's any background noise in your envrionment.

- Portability: No over the ear or on-ear headphones will ever be as small and portable as IEMs

- Listen while you sleep? I personally don't do this but if you get IEMs that fit flush into your ear you can theoretically use them to listen to music while sleeping.

Cons:
- Harder to get good tonal balance: It seems a good majority of IEMs on the market have really harsh and painful treble or no treble at all, and bass that's either nonexistent or overbearing. Finding a good balance in between is more difficult than full size headphones and much harder than with speakers for the price.

- Maintenance: You have to clean the earwax off the tips and oil off the bodies every so often. It could also be said these aren't as sanitary and can be somewhat awkward to share with other depending on how much of a germaphobe you are.

- Lower Build Quality?: Some would argue that IEMs are easier to break, whether it be running them over or the cable losing connection somewhere between the connector and the earpiece itself. I mostly believe this, except it's also a matter of how well you treat your gear, and generally IEMs get a bit more abuse than your average over the ear full size headphone

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
For all these reasons, some people never use IEMs because they don't sound as good or they're afraid they'll break, or people are forced to use them because they listen on the go and can't carry around a set of full size cans, or they are in noisy environments where they won't get the most out of full size cans. In the end, the choice is up to you. 

 

IEM's typically also have me fit insues with the 'driver' seal in where if you push it in too hard, you create a vacuum that 'pops' the dynamic driver a bit.

This blocking my way to lecture? No thanks.

Went out and found a pair of Martin Login Vantage that went from £4000+ down to £1000 instead.

I do this all the time with my GR07 BE's. I lower the volume and put on some light music or recordings of nature. I'll let you guys know if I ever wake up strangled. I've lost all feeling in my arm a couple times after sleeping the wrong way... quite terrifying feeling indeed.

I'm a bit unsatisfied with the speed test

 

I've been reading that some Mac's have issues utilizing the Samsung EVO 840 properly due to its controller.

 

I'm getting only 200MB/s by 250MB/s (read) as opposed to the 400MB/s I could

 

I'll be trying out Windows installation tmmrw to see if that will spice things up

 

Speaking of the EVO 840, here's the official advertisement:

 

 

I can safely say that I prefer Seitokai Yakuindomo over this (even though that's an invalid comparison).

I did this while listening to Robert Rich's 7 hour Somnium, which is meant to be listened to while sleeping.

I saw that vid a long time ago]

 

There was a LOT of analysis by people on the character types featured

 

Stay at home wife (conservative salmon clothing)

Business dude

And gamer Asian that plays a female character in a game etc

Seems like Samsung wanted to target those types of people, doesn't it?

 


 

Just finished Corpse Party: Tortured Souls and Missing Footage. It was OK, I guess, but it had too much plot to fit into the 4x30 min timeframe. Also the Missing Footage was disappointing in several aspects.

Nice. How's the bass response on them? I've heard that electrostats have nice big soundstage and good detail, but weak bass. BTW, what are all those people doing?

Technically, it's 5 Gigabits/sec which is the bandwidth speed and not Gigabyte/sec which is transfer speed. A 5Gb/s bandwith has a 625 Megabyte/sec transfer speed.

If I summed up every time I've seen someone say this and took it as the truth, then Anime has been declining every single season since about 1995. Most of the time I think the person saying it a) is growing up, or b) is growing tired of anime, seeing the same plots/tropes/etc season after season.

These people seem to end up giving up on watching anime and go the manga-only route.


That being said, this current season has been a bit of a let-down. As always I started with high hopes for several new shows. Unfortunately, there aren't any particular shows that would be a bona fide stand-out thus far for me. I tend to view shows from a "will be recommending this to people in two years" kind of way. With that mindset we are talking anime with broad marketability. For non-sequel or continuation shows this season, the only ones that come to mind would be D-Frag, Nisekoi, and Sakura Trick (mostly because yuri is rare). Possibly Toaru Hikuushi e no Koiuta but that would have a less broad appeal.

Also what Nekosou also tends to be true, though there have been many good winter season shows, in recent memory: (looking at old charts wink.gif ) Tamako Market, Another, Papa no Iukoto wo Kikinasai, Inu x Boku, Gosick, etc.
