I'll upload photos and a more detailed account of the event iun a little bit, once I finish unpacking.

 

Highlights:

  • Stax SR007 MK1 with the Woo Audio GES and also through a KGSSHV amp. Sounded fantastic. Damn right.
  • Sennheiser HE60 through the same Woo Audio GES. Even betterPeople seem to hate/love it.
  • Sennheiser Orpheus through the HEV90. Very nice, but the Senn stand wasn't well geared for critical listening. The amp still worked?
  • Finally listened to the Koss ESP950 with a Stax SRM 717 energizer...I'll be ordering these as soon as there's a price drop. Rich fakku. 
  • Chatting with Jude. Very chill guy.
  • Heir Audio Tzar 90 and 350, very much enjoyed these. Is it true that the 90s are V-shaped and the 350s are stupid anemic/upper-mids-y?
  • Got to chat with Swimsonny, he has a seriously nice IEM collection.

 

Disappointments:

  • My D5000's broke(photos to follow). Hahahahahahahahahahaha.....(sorry)
  • Heir Audio 4Ai...meh, not enough sparkle for me. Heard the UE900s? Those had way smoother treble and retained the sparkle - though I found both pretty sparkly.
  • The Tralucent 1+2 wouldn't fit in my ear. Hahahahahahahahahahaha.....(sorry)
  • The RE400...boring IEM and less detail than the RE262. Much preferred the RE262 and I feel the RE400 is very over hyped. Get the chance to try the RE252/272? Better sig tuning IMO.
  • Didn't win anything in the raffle.:( Hahahahahahahahahahaha.....(sorry)

When is your prom? Also, good luck with your ap tests.
Thanks! smily_headphones1.gif

Prom for me? June 1st?

 

Yeah, right angle. Whatever. Not a big deal for me.

 

I only use IEM's 1-2 hours out of the day. The rest is on headphones and speakers

Nice! How did you like the people?

 

Wait, you met Jude? Why was he in London?

 

I didn't care for the Tzar 90 and 350. The sparkle at the upper mid of the 350 killed it for me. It created more fatigue and harshness. I prefereed 4.ai as that is what I wanted. More neutrality without something 'sticking' out.

 

Swimsonny also does review samples etc etc.

@Bowei: I only use my IEMs one or twice a month, or my portable rig for that matter (unless you include my iPod docked to my car), yet I'm still complaining about it tongue.gif
post #72424 of 140546

Finished Aki-sora...bit weird not really my type of theme based story incest relationship, aside from that story was ok with bit of a sad ending but what do you expect.

 

Nisekoi is getting a bit boring, the funny expressions and random moments is sort of entertaining I guess.

 

Kimi iru machi: with the last 4 chapters, this is becoming like suzuki, and the author is rushing the storyline now with everyone getting married/knocked up as of late. Disappointment.

 

@bowei. Just fyi, Virgin na kankei r is active again, chap 9 was released recently in case you want to read it again.

Pretty much IEMs >10h of the day everyday here. Just more convenient. I've enjoyed the portable aspect of audio way more than usual. Having the mentality of your music accompanying you every step of the way is just invigorating.

Do you always use a portable amp?

The manga was nice. Nothing deep but it was fun to read.

 

YES! I dropped Nisekoi a while ago. I want real manga that ends.

 

Yep, found the same about kimi

 

yes!! Virgin na kankei!

 

DUDDE! YOU KNOW ME SO WELL!

Hahahaha portable amps..........................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

Oh wait you were serious. 

No I don't use portable amps, they all suck massive donkey appendages.

It becomes less of a "need" thing (as if there's really a necessity within this hobby - it's what you make of it) and more of a "want" thing. As in the want for different sigs. At some point the fine line between usability and incremental improvements get blurred.

 

It's absolutely fine if people want to get into it as it's their prerogative/preference. But it's absolutely not fine to make it out as anything other than personal preference. Rumors of audio nirvana from a $500 magic box are greatly exaggerated.

 

I've personally had enough portable amps to not care enough where I'm at the point where I've only kept an E5 and a E11. And the latter really sucks. They all really suck. Value is a moot point but the only ones I've heard as of recent that can be justified in terms of practicality and feature sets, are, guess what, the C5s and the UHA-6S MKIIs. 

 

So when people come to me to ask for amp recs I show them the door as I can't wholeheartedly put a recommendation into something I don't believe in anymore.

きれい ~~

 

Paint Tool -SAI- JPEG Encoder v1.00

Haha Kuroko how clever.

Oooh fancy pancy.

Because everything looks more yaoi artistic when you add wings to it.

Dem pastel palettes.

 

I mean these are nice and all, but one of the intriguing things about Kyojin is the amazingly fluid and detailed anatomical drawings of the giants. And yet no one has done anything in the lines of that. As my grade 4 art teacher would say - you're not going in deep enough. Actually my Grade 4 teacher was a bit of an arse so scratch that, I would never quote her.

 

These sort of get close enough, or at least put some sort of focus on the giants.

Typical fanart aesthetics though, running all the smexy yaoi aesthetics dry just like the target demographic would have you assume.

I did go to pixiv and my usual lurks but just found more actual yaoi.

So I was wondering....if you finished that avatar you were drawing...wink.gif

Yes he is.

 

The recent two chapters have shown a problem.

 

Im Dal Yong and Seo Kouji are similar. They can't really finish manga's. Im Dal Yong has it worse though. His are short and then end out of nowhere while Seo trolls.

discusison

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Ok WTF. This has been bothering me. The MC's friend and his girlfriend got preggo right?

 

Well the thing was. There was BARELY any signs of the girlfriend liking the MC's friend before these recent chapters where she just burst out.

 

Obviously this is more real. Where 'love' isn't really on the surface. But as we are reading a damm manga. They need to make that schiit more 'out there' and known.

I'm going to guess right now that Reddit /r/audiophile hates Head-Fi or something.
