If you can capture the ethos of this review, in your own reviews, I think you'll do great.

I know what you mean. He also gives much better real explanations for soundstage and other things.

 

Well, one step at a time I guess cool.gif

 

I don't think anyone reviewing right now is at that stage,

I do not know that one

I would totes slap every college board member- no, I'd round house kick them and make them reform the way english is taught. Not many people know grammar, but they clearly don't see that. It wasn't even taught in any of my schools except for 1 grade (8th). Most of the things I'd learned outside of school. Good old Murica for you.

That is quite the review.

@Bowei: I can spot some minor errors in your English, but you're still able to convey your feelings well. It's nothing like some of the hilarious Chinese products I get that we're written in English with what appears to be google translate...

Ahh. Chingrish. There's less of it than there used to be, but that's probably because google translate is getting better.

That was more of analysis of the entire headphone audio world with a review element built in.

I think it's freaking fantastic that you notice your shortcomings, at least you have a direction you want to go!

 

Nobody is at that stage because I think people just review for the sake of reviewing, to inflate one's ego and tell everybody else 'lols look at me, I'm a reviewer for a hobby I'm passionate about, look at my status'.

 

This hobby is filled with so much pretentiousness, everybody just wants people to agree with them.

 

God damnit I hate audiophiles. tongue.gif

I notice it quite often. 

 

I know what my problem is, procrastination, and carelessness

 

What happens is that I write schitty essays. But then when my teachers tell me to carefully outline something out or to correct some essay for mistakes and etc.

 

I do fantastic. 

 

It's not even based on what I'm working on. I realize that I work "actively" when reviewing other works and etc etc. It's something I have to change in general writing

 

As for my current reviewing. I'm not going for a CLIEOS or something. I just want to be an audiophile reviewer that reviews consumer things and gives honest reviews of products. 

 

For example:

http://www.head-fi.org/t/624610/arcam-rpac-review/15#post_9061972

 

There were many faults with that product and its price. But being an enlightened audiophile review does not mean I need to schiit on every product. One must also analyze why that product was at said price and etc.

 

No. You hate a specific(mass) group of audiophiles. There once was a dedicated audiophile group. 

 

To remain objective. I can't rage. There are so many times when I want to rage at just how elitist some commenters are at things.

 

And then there is the fact that many people can't do criticism anymore.

 

http://www.head-fi.org/t/638910/fiio-e07k-andes-review-and-help-thread/270#post_8983902

 

Youc an't analyze the human condition in audio anymore without freaking someone out.

I felt that Psycho Pass escalated too quickly. First nothing happens and then they pull such an event?

 

It just doesn't sit well or fit well with me.

I took honors, but not AP. last year was great because I scored 100% on the first paper I wrote, and my teacher made it so I didn't have to write ~15 other essays the rest of the class had to write...

Eh, it did escalate quickly, but there isn't really a reference of time from the last episode to this one. Just accept it. They only have 22 episodes to tell their story...

Yeah, there was little reference of time. It literally POPPED out of nowhere.

 

Code Geass only had 25 episodes to set itself up. And boy did it use that time.

Damn, ghost in the shell is glorious on my 5.1... My whole room is rattling in the OP, and 5.1... FINALLY! Another anime in 5.1 besides Clannad and Kanon!
Oh, and the 3D animation is absolutely fantastic for whenever this was made...

Yeah, you can easily tell how old it is. But for the time, it was good

 

Fantastic OP from Origa is also a good welcome

 

Very very good animation for the time period.

I also think that's kinda the point too. Not really sure how to transcribe my thoughts into text further, but I think the abruptness was intentional from the beginning. Though I do agree, a bit more foreplay would've been nice...
