If you are under 18....please....it is disgusting near the end. I loved it at first or 3/4 of the way through, but it is absolutely filthy. It makes you want to read more and have you "feel" for the manga through the absolutely worse way possible. I've seen their tactic a few times..quite a few times in manga but most mangaka's don't go too far with it, this one....goes full out....just stop...I can't burn it from my mind...

Here are some of my quick notes relating to the new subjective / objective discussion.

 

 

- The Sony Qualia 010 has some of the worst measurements on paper of any headphone, ever.  (yet, it's legendary, and it sells for more today second hand than it did when it was new)

 

sony_qualia-30Hz.jpgsony_qualia-300Hz.jpg

 

 

- Measurements will vary from tester to tester, they're not uniform, look up an IEM, look at it's FR charts from different testers, it always varies.

 

Example, look at the volume level of the NE-700X here at 20kHz.  That looks... very very good.  Compare the 20kHz volume to every single IEM here http://sonove.angry.jp/

 

13bfc7295668fbfe7de02278ec33e870.gif

 

 

 

- Measurements, even from the same tester, don't seem to indicate the overall sound very well, anyway.

 

Example 1, q-Jays versus Shure SE535 (I've heard both, they sound nothing alike, at all, totally different)

 

q-jays versus se535 50hz square wave.pngq-jays versus se535.png

 

 

Example 2, Sony MDR-EX700 versus Sony MDR-EX1000 (I've heard both, these sound totally, nothing alike.  If anything, the EX700 is famously harsher)

source: http://sonove.angry.jp/sony_MDR_EX1000.html

 

 

So what does this tell us about audio, at least at the end of the chain?  That it's an inexact science.  The results vary all over the place, are non-indicative, and don't correlate very well to what we hear.

 

Keep in mind you can make a Skullcandy look better than a STAX on paper, if you play around with them with an equalizer and effects prior to measurement.

 

A lot of people like to look at the world in black and white, i.e. if there's no data... it doesn't exist.  That isn't reality, there is a lot in this world which exists, with no data or evidence to support it.

I stopped linking and using graphs in arguments after I realized the same thing :) Heck even an Apple earbud looks good(decent) but sounds like crap. What you need is a good balance of actual chart measurement god powers and one that is super pleasureable to the human subjective hearing. Which is what I belive to be one of the arguments in teh iner fidelity article I linked :)

 

Thanks for the posts both Tilpo and Kiteki :) Our thread enjoys reading them!

LOL I don't mean genetically, its just a play on words with the kanji "熊猫" which means panda.

The second character by itself means cat.

Im guessing bowei probably knows chinese.

 

 

Yup. Technically, Xiong Mao literally means Bear Cat. I don't recognize the characters very well because I stopped learning Chinese awhile ago (something I'm beginning to regret) but I've seen the characters together a lot when I was in China in ChengDu looking at pandas.

 

He does.

@b1o, I know Chinese up to a 3rd grade level. But ....bear cat...never really completely made sense...panda=bear cat.

 

It doesn't make sense at all, well, the bear part does, but the cat part doesn't.

Yup. Maybe some cheap earbuds can produce between the same frequencies, if not better than some higher end headphone and still sound horrible. That's what makes HeadRoom reviews good though because they provide objective and subjective points.

 

Only thing I have to criticize is the lack of detail, continuous advertising of themselves (after all, they sell their own stuff and headphones), and one thing I can't blame them for which is the hearing bias and different ear response and stuff which makes it a little too subjective than a non biased subjective review.

 

There are a few ways to become close to the no-bias hearing, but it's a little difficult. We search and audition headphones based on others people's ratings. I haven't heard many headphones so I don't know what to expect, which sort of pushes me close to no bias, but after reading that one thing's better than another, my hearing's slightly biased.

10/10 is hard to give from me. Without it it gets an 9/10. With it. It gets a 7/10 and a mark on the no recommend list

Read akumetsu. Same author but better storyline and plot. Very very good if you like wolf guy

Listen to everything with an open-mind.  Don't consider the price or brand, just delete that.

 

Kind of makes me less popular though, saying the Shure SE535 and Ultrasone Edition 8 completely suck, and such comments.  There are other factors though, like being biased to a particular sound signature, such as enhanced mids, impactful bass, ultra-polished treble, etc.

 

If I hear a bass canon and the treble sounds like rusty iron, and the mids like dishwater, I'll pass... but some people might actually love it and dance to their bass canonized hip-hop beats, with dirty mids and rusty highs, like a gangsta yo.
