Gambatte! You'll probably like them after about 10 minutes. Don't let your initial initial impression sway your mind on them!
I also know where your username comes from now biggrin.gif
Yeah... my crap school district... the only one in our city! rolleyes.gif

Too much specs for me, can't stand all that power. Did I mention that I use Pentiums?

TOTALLY FORGOT ABOUT THAT. Yay, I was worried about shipping for a while, but now I can just drop by. Yeah call me up when you're going. 

I think if I get some hands-on with the gear I'm planning on, will probably make things easier.

Wat? Oh, missed it. No, HS. 



See everyone's getting Mad Dogs.
/Folds to peer pressure.


Wait are you in CA or the US? Also, you wouldn't use the ODAC and C5 together? wut? I thought the c5 was just an amp, I haven't really read through any of the info yet.

How do you have lcd-2's/he-400's in HS >:. I'm totally jelly. Then again all my money in hs went to girlfriends and crap...

Man I wish I had a high end audiophile store in the vicinity. The one nearest to me is probably a 2 hour drive away.

You can ask, but that's probably like, overkill for just a humble CAL. BBUT, it will be the most Phwwooor CAL ever though. I think a Picolino-cabled CAL though.

Nah, got mixed up with Fate. rolleyes.gif Whoops.

 

What CAL!s really need are new headbands. Too flimsy for portable use, so the search for closed-back HPs pushes onwards. Wood cups with custom cable = actually a good idea.\\

My CALs are already pretty heavily modded and I'm considering changing to a silver-plated cable for looks. Maybe I can get them to the point where it'll outdo the Apple iBuds with IE8 drivers and Piccolino cables that was in the DIY cables thread? :P

Sometimes. I was just planning on making a custom bracket each time. Like this:

Dear lord, how the heck do you stand transcoding videos? The 7 year old CPU I upgraded from is better than P4!!!

Uh... 1: I don't have your phone number, 2: I'm pretty sure international calls cost extra, and I'm a cheap arse... lol

Oh, you're in HS? I'd assumed you were in college. That will probably make our meet a bit less awkward, since I'm a senior in high school.


Off to do some A/B comparisons between Mad Dogs with Alpha pads and Dog pads!

Who said he used a P4? the new SB based pentiums are pretty fast(for a budget chip).

To be honest. When one has all that gear, i don't see why you would downgrade...sure the maddogs are good, but when you have good gear already...

Lol girlfriends....relationships....riaju shine!

Oh and i wonder if there are any audiophile stores in bay area CA

Twin is apparently the same age as me, so between 16-17?

Oh and maybe twin could pass the cds to mech and ship from oregon so itll be a lil cheaper

LOLz now it makes sense. No, it's more like the headband is too narrow and presses on one point on my head too much. And maybe a bit more isolation from the cups would be nice.

LOL that would be epic. What are your mods? I'm kind of curious now.

I don't transcode videos. That's a menial job I surrogate to rich Mac Pro friends.

Oh, right. Wait, who has my phone # then?

And I'll make sure it'll be extra awkward very_evil_smiley.gif

Usually, best to keep one foot in the top-tiers, and play around with cheaper stuff. Satisfies that itch and doesn't break the wallet.

Canada. It's like a 1-2 hour drive to Portland, so yeah...
 
C5 is just an amp. Would use it through LOD with iPod or something.
 
Well, technically started saving for gear 6 years ago (part-timing). Join date says '11 but lurked since '08 (the good days, right before HD800 and +$1000 flagship era). Also bought/sold like hundreds of IEMs,  but still retained a good portion of what I started off with, so it's all good.

Actually, I am using a P4/P3/P2...

Still stuck in the 90's...

S'okay, laptop's a Nehalem.
