Then get something better than garbage pens!

 

Sorta my full lineup (and excessive btw).

From bottom:

-Staedtler pencil holder 900 25 LTD (blue)

-Staedtler 2.0 lead mechanical pencil 925 35-20

-Staedtler polo 0.5 mechanical pencil (that I found at home ---> most likely over 20 yrs old. Got two of these... so durable despite being plastic. As expected of Made in Germany stuff from back in the days)

-Pentel GRAPH1000PRO 0.3 + 0.5 + 0.7 (cause my plastic mechanical pencils always break at the screw tip)

-3-way Uni Style+Fit pen using 0.7mm Uni Style+Fit Jetstream ink

-Single Uni Style+Fit pen using 0.23mm ink or something

-Pilot G-TEC-C4

-COPIC Drawin Pen F02 (but the ink stinks!! it smells like spring if you get what I mean)

-Preppy fountain pen

 

And that bottle of ink is way overdue, and... well, I think the pigments are already all separated from the water.

 

And sadly I think I only have 2B 2.0 leads... it smudges all over its super annoying :S I was H ones for 2.0 size.

One of my longest reviewers ever. 2.5K words outfitted with Unboxing taken with a Canon HD CamCorder and about to record an extremely in depth video review

OMG, coders out here, can someone explain how the hell I'm supposed to install cygwin and/or g++ on a bloody Windows computer?  I'm in a comp sci intro course and it seems that my instructor uses a Mac, not to mention it seems we need to learn how to compile C++ (and later on, HTML) sans IDE for now (I already have CodeBlocks installed for that, but yeah...).  If someone could help, I would very much appreciate it.

OTL

I know I am tired but...

I read till the second paragraph in BUILD and... abort mission.

Clutter does not even express the levels of... clutter.

 

And are you sure the nozzle is proprietary or did you just forget about Shures and other BAs that use smaller nozzles? Might help to have a picture of the bare nozzle by the way. Or measure the darn thing with a ruler; if those ARE actually proprietary that can have huge potential harms to FA's sales. And just in case you did forget or were not aware that many BA types use thinner nozzles, comply DOES make those types of tips, and you'd also get the choice to use Shure olives et al.

 

You cannot comment on the durability since these have yet to experience significant wear or breakage. You can talk about the apparent durability; don't make conditional statements definite. You can assess the durability but should not pass straight judgement yet on how these are definitively not durable (e.g. in the last paragraph of Usability).

 

Put the testing segment neat the beginning.

 

And would you please stop with the linear armature? What exactly are you implying? Balanced armature does not mean a balanced sound in the Vee-shape meaning.

 

Why do you have Highs, Mid Instruments, VOCALS, and Bass? Leave mids and vocals together... or maybe make the differentiation between male vocals and female vocals just to give a broader scope. You'd be surprised how female vocals and male vocals behave wildly different in the mids.

 

Quote:
The clarity of the vocals are on quite a high level. They aren’t veiled and are forward and present. The detail however relates back to the lightness I described above, where the mid and lower vocal portions don’t have the full weight of what the human voice would sound like. The upper vocal representation and detail is quite amazing, but the mid and low vocal areas, do need a bit more help.

All 3 red parts = SAME THING. Upper mids <--> Clarity.

Both blue parts = SAME THING. You sum that "mid and lower vocal portions" and "weight" and "mid and low vocal areas" as body.

 

The number of times you wrote however...

 

Plastic also shouldn't deserve automatic point deduction.

 The arched, almost old style vacuum cleaner style of the TBA-04’s

What?

At least use some synonyms... old fashion/design vacuum cleaner style? or anything else that better portrays your idea because old style vacuum cleaner style isn't quite doing it. It's confusing.

 

Classical tends to prefer having good bass. If these are bass light (or something, I don't really get it. Are they actually bass light, considering you are kind of a bass head?) where do all the percussive parts and the ambiance creating lows go in creating them feels for classical? Go listen to some Wagner without any bass and tell me that sounds okay...

 

 

Do corrections. You must. It may be "informative" as Warren has it, but only if you have the patience. Or if you intend to read it as if someone were muttering and stuttering about them to you in person. You're putting information down as writing; make it worthy of literature. If you must give it a familiar tone, that's okay, but there are ways to eliminate the loop of thoughts of a spoken piece.

Proprietary? Nope. I said somewhat.

 

I haven't owned many other BA's that had the nozzle type of the TBA's so I wasn't sure.

 

Yeah, durability and linear armature are words that are screwed into my mind that mean something else.

 

I seperate mids and instruments section for look purposes. People hate big blobs/sections of text.

 

You seriously need to feel this unit's build materials. Considering the price. Oh gosh. 

 

Thanks for the ideas. I actually thought about that but rather than clarifying and condensing, I just kept on writing.

Gah, do you have anything to compare them to other than the LCD-3? You gotta hear more high end gear meng!!!

I'm actually sorta curious about these now too! Kinda sounds like the typical BA bass though. :/ It's good that they tamed the bass though compared to the DBA-02, those were pretty painfully bright and harsh. I'd be curious to hear them sometime though to compare to my UE900s, DN1000s, MA750s and my fullsize headphones! :veryevil:

Pretty good so far!

You need to sneak in some 1964 ads ;)

I'll try to go to Camjam or another big meet in the near future.

 

It's not certain yet, but some other big things may be happening soon.

DOH, I should have thought of that!!! Oh well...

 

They were probably thinking something along the lines of: People will pay nearly infinite monies if they think it sounds good... :veryevil:

I don't know. I'll let you know if I do find the answer. Will be comparing it.

Oh, really?
Who is going to send you the unit? iRiver?



Woah!
Nailed it!

Shure SE lineup has thin nozzles with a kink. Kenwood has the same idea but with a much shorter nozzle. TDK has a thin nozzle that is entirely cylindrical and no kinks. Those are only speaking from my experience, there should be plenty of other single BAs that use these formats. It is good to voice your uncertainties but you didnt voice it well. Get informed. Somewhat is ambiguous and does not answer nor tell any answers, not even "maybe".

Here is another take to that question. What other BA IEM did you own? Why did you not compare to it?

Well fix it. It certainly is not the first time we mention the absurdity of linear armature as a terminology in your review works.

Your sections are blurb fat and big enough as they are. In literature it is said that in French it is preferable to have long unbroken paragraphs. But your Frencb is terrible so I don't imagine you're under its influence. English writings should be short and concise, splitting your thoughts into smaller paragraphs.

Look, the way you said it now? Put that AS-IS in your review. Conveys the idea far better than your roundabout quest to say they feel flimsy but not really saying anything other than this plastic is probably not a good idea.

If you though of it, do it. Where is your rush, make changes, improve it. Just don't pitch us the amalgam of your thoughts in a smart-sounding way (opposite effect considering your use of English) and give us an "oh wells, whats done is done."

Or when they thought it a good idea to send Bowei a review unit (from the way he said it, sounds like it might be the case)
