Did you know that sarcasm makes for a bad counter argument since it comes of arrogant and hinders further discussion?

Yeah well "it simply means that we get used to it to the point of it sounding 'normal'" wasn't exactly a good starting point either. -_-

To many people, the iBud sounds 'normal.'

And the Earpod is actually quiet decent SQ-wise.

And regarding this EQ talk...while I also think that iBud to SR-009 example is a bit extreme, I also don't think that one could EQ, let's say, an ER4 to sound like a Shure 535. The insides(filter, crossover, driver-type blabla) is just too different. While it might "sound" like the 535, you will never get the same soundstage, seperation, impact and so on.

Sort of curious what the new earpod sounds like. Maybe I'll get it for dirt cheap and just try EQing it (pink noise).

Just change the default program for the types of files you want to switch back.

The Apps come in handy sometimes where you need a bit more screen separation.

yeah that too

 

The POP OUT is also hated by me...like seriously. GTFO of my face. Even an SSD wouldn't save it.

Hmm I might have to borrow some money from my mom...I really want to pre-order a DX50 before they are all sold out here in Germany :/
I really really hope to get at least 120€ from selling my J3. My good 'ol friend is worth at least a bazillion bucks but whatever :'(

yep 3 points only :)

 

let us know how the DX50 is

For starters, forgot to post this.

Yup, thats coffee (well latte) and you can see it has quite the marketing... lol

 

 

Kinda NSFW (Click to show)

 

 

Just some of the crazy things you can do with this kind of mousepads w/ clear windows :D

Blotched out the whole body even though it isn't completely naked. Still, we got kids here. And it's too risque for Head-Fi rules.

 

Of course, did not keep that picture there. Pondering on what to put instead.

Remember that Ferrari in Akiba with SnK? (Click to show)

 

Well there's more to that.

 

 

 

 

A maid Porsche, SnK Ferrari, and Rozen Maiden Limousine.

From what I then understood, these cars belong to a maid cafe-slash-pharmacy.

Brilliant owner that had a pharmacy in Akiba decided to add a maid cafe and rake in extra profits. Notice all those license plates.

 

(P.S. by pharmacy, they sell medications, not entirely sure if they also carry prescription drugs. But they also sell drinks and etc, so kind of like a convenience store but generally a little cheaper)

 

 

Comiket stuff. (Click to show)

 

Yup. Those are all the doujinshi I brought back this time (and made my luggage overweight). Only the lower-right corner stuff are mostly bought in stores. And that signed board (non-original) was from store also as present for spending X amount.

 

JUST FOR THE RECORD, in all the stuff you see there, only 3 contain minor nudity (and are rough sketches at that).

 

This is my collection. Now I gotta add the stuff from the previous pic in here.

Looking back... damn, I spent way too much on this, I have soooo many.

 

 

 

Speaking of Neptune stuff, like I said. Land of lollies are totally Nintendoland.

Lol, Rikkun has posted worse pics and gotten away with it

busy with military commitments, and a reignited passion for speedcubing

 

Just cleared Seitokai no Ichizon yesterday, currently clearing Chunnibyou (though I am going back to camp in less than two hours)

 

Now I am wondering whether to finish the LN of Oreimo first or finish the anime first

Nice! Favorite weapons so far?

 

Get into tank division? Ask your company if Signapore can apply for Tank Biathalons with Russia

I would recommend reading extra/unlimited first, or at the very least, summaries. Extra is a typical cliche filled school life story that introduces you to all the characters. Reading it allows you to get to know them, and contrast them with their versions in unlimited/alternative. There are some subtle hints to Unlimited/Alternative's world while playing Extra though, so look out for those. Unlimited was pretty decent, but really just a teaser for Alternative as its ending really leaves you hanging and wanting for more. But still, necessary as the backstory to Alternative.

/jealous and how's the coffee? I bought some coffee soda yesterday and it tastes pretty amazing. Will post pics later.

Thanks! Now I get it! I thoguth both were the same!

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

unrealistic for me.

Mr. MC went through all this schiit (refusing all the girls etc) just to get together with his little sister and when she suggested to "break up" after graduation, he is totaly fine with that! He did not hesitate one second when he accepted that.
Okay, they played couple for a few weeks (?), eventually even "married" and kissed and after that they were all like "nah, whatever, it was nice". That is totaly not how a sane being would act. And what about all the consequences this wil have in the future? How can one honestly think that they will just get over this short phase? It's not like they are some 13 year old who play lesbian for a while until they get tired of it....what Kirino and her brother went through is something completely different and way more serious.
The whole incest thing and picking Kirino was fine by me, but they should have handled this "path" differently.

The only not-really-that-plot-relevant thing in the last episodes I did not like, was this little cosplay brat confessing to the MC. She had so little screentime etc and it just felt like they wanted to stuff some plotholes with a little bit of tragic romance. The scene wasn't even 4 minutes long. Unnecesary if you ask me.

Oh and @panda
I understand how you feel about the ending but...nah it was just not really for me.

 

Yeah, BUT, recent developments happend that showed us that this wasn't the ending the writer wanted
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

It was posted by him that his publisher would NOT allow for a full incest ending. Thus he had to make this half half type of thing. Full incest ending for an extremely popular anime like Oreimo would not have been good. And would throw more Japanese politicians fire into the mix

The new earpods are pretty dayum good for music enjoyment. Obviously not anything neutral or studio. Far from it.

 

IT sounds similar to my AKG K422's in that its warm and what not with the difference there being that it doesn't have the upper mid spike, and is much darker.

 

For a bundled with earphone, this is the best there is from a consumer company.

I'm sure the point system goes something like "the less points the better".
This glorious soup, beaten by a pasta sauce and some weird kind of croquette....not acceptable.

I have high hopes in this little bugger!


@Oreimo
I see...kind of understandable. Does the VN/LN/whatever end a bit more "drastic"?

The UI in the rendered pic looks nice. But then again, most say that the actual usability of the DX100 compared to the X3 was practically the same with the DX having fancy graphics. But hey, I would rather test it myself rather than take someone elses word for it.

 

Getting the Colorfly C4 sent to me this week, maybe iBasso is interested in getting comparison and review done. I'll email them.

 

Oreimo

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

LN ends the same. Mangaka couldn't change it. Due to where it was published. This same thing happened to Denpa onna. However the mangaka in that one just went online to his blog and wrote the real ending in the blog post for his fans.

Yeah the Earpods aren't too bad at all. If they only had decent noise isolation I would like them more.

But to be fair, it would be best to not have it.

 

The earpod is a generic stable for ALL of Apple's users. The lack of isolation is good for walkers and runners as you can still be aware of your surroundings. As you can see form most people using earbuds, most can't give a **** about isolation. So if someone wants isolation, they get new earbuds. Plain and simple.

Well yeah of course. I wouldn't go out of my way to buy one but if I had to buy an earbud, it would be the Earpod over all other earbuds and generic-brand earphones from grocery stores; offering the best comfort, sound quality, and function.

Yep, after hearing the earpod, I gotta say. Haters gonna hate.

This. EQ it and it might become one of the best sub $50 earbuds so far.

I like the Earpods too!

The old ibuds were actually one of, if not, the best earbud available. There was an article about it on innerfidelity a while back.

I'm gonna be gettin the K3003 in a few days so I will have owned or heard just about every TOTL phone out there. With that said, the earpod is some good ****. Great sound, build quality and stellar comfort, gets my seal of approval
