Yeah there is that but Wine and a few other things make up for it.

What is that? Cake?

 

We learned of the 17th Century (1550-1650) Dutch Golden Age today. It was pretty fun :)

 

You guys were probably one of the best Golden Age people in terms of humanity. But the lack of Imperialism and a forceful nature (which made you guys quite awesome) was a cause of the downfall. Still cool though

I will not answer your japanese ramblings Tilpo lol

 

 

 

@Manveru I think the unforgiving thing is just like the word "fun" in headphone. It's more of a way of saying a headphone will let you know if something is badly recorded and won't smooth it over well. Like apple ibuds are forgiving because they aren't very revealing. When people say something is fun, they are really just saying something isn't a critical listening type of headphone meant for analyzing. At least that's what I equate it to.

The outside doesn't look as green as expected. I wonder about the inside.


This is maccha cake. In other words, green tea cake.

No they don't. The only two music players with interfaces I really liked are iTunes 11 and the old Zune software. Neither can be used with Wine. The thing that kind of sucks about both of them anyway too is they're made by really retarded people who think it's a good idea to restrict you to their own dumb proprietary formats. No plugins or anything, pretty sure Zune doesn't even have a basic graphic EQ.

That's what I'm talking about though. I don't think that even makes any sense at all. IME there's no such thing as a headphone which "smooths over" a bad recording, or a headphone that will "let you know if something is badly recorded." A bad recording sounds like just as bad a recording on ibuds as on multi-hundred dollar headphones. The "revealing" headphones actually make it sound better...because they are better headphones. Maybe it's just me.

Ew...haha. I love actual green tea, but any food that is green tea flavored for some reason makes me gag.

Really?
The green tea flavor should be subtle. While I can understand not liking too much of it, if it's just a hint of green tea flavor, is it really that bad?

As a Chinese person, people find it weird that I don't like green tea.

I meant the other options.

It's weird. I've tried green tea ice cream and cakes or breads before. Both made me feel really sick. But I drink green tea and it's awesome.

What other options? The reason I started complaining in the first place is because I was saying there were no other good options. Just a few that are decent at best and then a whole lot which suck really bad.

I meant program options and more open-ness in a sense

@Manveru To an extent, I see what you are saying but I have found lesser recorded things sound anything from bland to to downright unpleasant on high end headphones. Let's take some low end production rap for example. A terrible headphone like the beats studio(it is quite bad for 90% of music for a $300 headphone imo) does great at bringing some real fun to a lot of that rap and I actually would recommend the beats if you cared about style somewhat and listened to only that kind of rap. But when I plopped some in a 007 Omega....it kind of was...very meh sounding >_>

 

Now someone who's focus is to hear everything and that is their pleasure? I think your theory is true.

Mom got me a nexus 7 for my birthday. Score. Have to wait until after finals to get it though :c.

I don't know. It just seems to me that a lot of things that people say about gear and audio stem more from abstract reasoning, emotional desires, and culturally praised aesthetics applied to reality and experience, rather than the other way around. Personally, I think a lot of the words people use to describe things around here don't make any sense or even have anything to do with reality. For example, take the descriptor "analytical." I've always thought that this was a nothing word. What the heck is that even supposed to mean? I don't see how such a thing is even possible. To me, it seems like a word people just use when they want to flaunt their "sophisticated" audiophile tastes or something, or to use to try and say "eww neutrality!" and defend their romantic fantasies and beliefs. Same with "fun" and stuff like that. In some cases I guess some people are simply using such words as a codename for a certain type of frequency balance, but a headphone's sound signature and how it relates to your personal preferences is another matter altogether which could be described and discussed in infinitely clearer and more efficient ways. They're obviously trying to communicate something but they way they're going about it just renders it completely incomprehensible and up to be (mis)interpreted in whatever way the reader happens to do so.

 

Myself, I'm like the total opposite of the person who tries to "hear everything," and I simultaneously dislike the idea of "fun" headphones. Maybe it's things like that that prevent me from being able to understand the "rules."

 

Once again, none of this is directly aimed at any specific person. Just me ranting about junk...
