Looks convincing to me, the sun is hitting the city in a direction that would make that shot possible.

The Adult Swim anime stuff is what got me hooked in the first place (FLCL, Cowboy Bebop, and Durararararararararararararararara being the first ones I greatly enjoyed). I no longer watch my anime there any more and I just use my computer now too.

I got a bunch of pics with us in them so those will be posted on the Skype. I'll give a run down of the entire trip down to Seattle in a little bit with the pics of the gear, drive, food, etc. in a little bit (it'll take a bit of time to write the post up...).

Nope, nothing to do with the b22. My design principals are completely different because quite frankly I think the b22 design is [Insert derogatory noun here]

I Just feel like trolling the audio show one day but my engineer self prevented me from creating something short of decent.

post #69129 of 154177

Okay, so while Atom is handling the boring trip related stuff, I'll post impressions:

V-Moda M100: Not V-curved like I thought it would. The top shelf of the treble was a little weaksauce, but I can see how that sound sig would sound very good in public.

K701: Oh boy. I actually liked these. More center staging with Project H than when I had the Q701 with an E7. Bowei, how can you listen to those for bass music? You're missing out on half the song :)

For non bass music though, the detail level was excellent. I thought the MDs were good at detail... Turns out they're only okay in the treble area, the Ks sounded more detailed. I may look into a phone like the Ks as a second can sometime :)

But not the AKGs, the headband was not good to me.

JDSlabs C5: I'm buying one. Bass boost=bueno. Stepped volume is A-OK for listening to my music quietly on my GR07, and no noise unless it's on 100% volume.

Trains are slow in the UK. I also have to change trains.

Still, that's ridiculous! I guess you can use that to get some good headphone time in at least.

Ok, well as long as it works and sounds good that's all that matters, you, nwavguy and Steve Eddy are three people I know so far that dislike the design of the b22. Each to his own. What do you think of the O2 design?

Ok, here's the breakdown of our trip up to Seattle:

 

Woke up at 6:30. I got up first and used the shower. That's probably too boring for you guys so let's fast forward a bit. While on the highway heading up, we got stuck in traffic (and this is after rush hour mind you). You could just imagine our faces when we got into the carpool lane and found that there where no cars in front of us.

(This is a bit after the congestion area).

 

Once in the UW area of Seattle, we got a bit lost. Thankfully Mice helped us out with directions and managed to find the parking garage where we met up. He gave us a tour of the campus which was straight to the point and was actually enjoyable. We then went down to get an actual tour of a dorm room (yeah, yeah, this is kind of boring right now, I know). When that was finished the three of us went down to some imports shop where Mech and I both bought pairs of chopsticks. We even found Bowei hiding in the back. Afterwards we went to a pizzeria for lunch (ask Mice for the name of it). They had great pizza there as well as interesting movie posters that were in French, Spanish, and Italian.

(Random peanut statue).

 

(Bowei, Bowei everywhere).

 

(One of the many movie posters).

 

After that Mice had to go to a class so Mech and I went to Pink Gorilla to check out some retro and imported games. We then left to go to an Otaku shop called Sweet Kitty. The place was full of bootlegged CDs and DVDs. What was even more garbage is their lack of Toradora stuff (and by lack I mean none). But after all is said and done, I still bought myself 4 posters (1 Oreimo, 2 Miku, 1 K-On) and Mech bought 3 (1 Miku, 1 Oreimo, 1 Madoka). (Pics of posters not yet available).

We then met back up with Mice and headed to a conference room to set up. Fishi soon found us and we all busted out our gear. We all sat around for about 2 hours listening to each other's headphones.  Mech talked about his impressions about the headphones already, you probably won't want mine then. Especially since I'm not a full on audiophile yet.

(Bowei was with us in spirit).

 

(Man, these things suck for $300...thankfully they threw in an iTouch for free...).

 

 

The four of us headed out to U:DON for dinner. I got a large bowl of the Soup Udon (big mistake) with some delicious onigiri and Takoyaki and some Oolong tea. Here is a pic of Mech's food.

(Me throwing in the towel after eating half of the large Udon).

 

 

After dinner, Fishi had to leave so the remaining 3 people all went to a Japanese bookstore. That's where Mice took the picture of Bowei and Mrs. Bowei. We didn't get any books but Mice bought the K-On OST, Mech bought a couple of Miku CDs, and I bought a CD called Cherry Blossoms that has beautiful BGM in it and it also comes with free incest incense. The incense smells absolutely wonderful and I think I might be addicted to it. (Pics not yet available).


I would like to thank Mice for helping pull this meet up together, I had a blast and was glad to try out various headphones and amps in a group setting like today. It was a new experience for me and something that I'll definitely remember. I can't wait to meet up again sometime during the next school year. I'd also like to thank Mech for driving us to and from Seattle, especially with all that traffic there, it definitely did not seem to be easy. Oh, and it was also great talking to Fishi for the first time, I'm sorry that my iBuds aren't so up to par :P Sorry this post has taken such a long time to get done. I'm exhausted and I get distracted easily (I'm looking at you, Skype group).
