You can do proxies for Spotify. I don't recommend proxies in general but that's the obvious way. After a few days went back to Grooveshark though - properly sorted stuff is nice but if I'm streaming I'm searching sporadic, esoteric stuff, or doing radio. Or Pandora/Rdio (the latter of which, very Canadian-friendly if I do recall).

 

And this part is totally OT. (Click to show)
For *nix people - I do think that spotifyd and despotify are very nifty utils, will have to admit that. CEF runs the regular client though and CEF has been on my mind very heavily as of late. As you can see this sort of stuff heavily outweights headphones for me nowadays in terms of mental occupation.

I've been quite tempted to try it myself, maybe if I do break down and change phone providers to save on my monthly bill

Glad your enjoying them Doc. I absolutely love the sound out of my SRH1540. It is awesome that Shure has gone back to their bassy roots..I would also encourage you to try out all your different sources..They Amp like a champ and sound like a whole new animal with power behind the sound..I did try out my SRH840 pads on them and I like the sound using them as well. It might even sound a bit better with more treble presence and a touch less bass but once you go Alcantara you just cant use anything else. Try out some other pads if you get a chance..

Listening to one of my favorites, generally one of the albums I'll use as a reference

Google Music? I can't imagine their library is anywhere near Spotify's.

Yeah, google play music all access.

 

It's not, but it's going to grow, :D

If you think I'm "out of control" in the headphone acquisition department, it's nothing compared to my music acquisition over the years. (I'm basically a horder/enthusiast/collector/obsessive). I have approximately 6.000 LP's, 3000 CD's, maybe a terabyte of music on hard drives. Still buy LPs and CDs, some hi-res digital downloads, always looking for new sounds.

What waynes said is true, it's a tune, :P my fault doctor, nice collection you have so far (from your previous posts).

And if all fails waynes, you could always use rhapsody....
ok never mind.

No need to apologize, didn't mean it like that, just feeling my age for a moment, I suppose, "well, young whippersnapper, in MY DAY you could find music like that on EVERY radio station, those were the days!!!!" Actually, it's not true, Aretha did have hits, but that was something different. Just interesting to me to hear people discovering The Beatles, Aretha (shouldn't be so interesting, my daughters do it all the time, though they have grown up hearing a wide variety of stuff in the house, knew some classics by osmosis).

Maybe google music could help though.
I've been using Mog music, though I understand they are going to stop the service, morphing into something called "Beats Music", have to see how that plays out.

I actually love pulling out what I think is good music and getting it heard...this is a particualrly great place, because everyone is here because they love music and want to hear it at its best. Do like to hear if someone liked a particular song, too.
OK, nuff for tonight, time for beauty sleep smily_headphones1.gif

Mind pming some of those classical music for me to listen to these re700s? 

 

It could help me A/B my headphones better, while enjoying bliss....

 

For how long will MOG be closed?

This comment made me want to hear some now as well, :)

 

Nah, I know you didn't mean it that way, just trying to correct myself is all. Well, I also feel as though I'm quite heartless with my comments sometimes, so I try to fix what I mean, lol.

 

Your music posting has been pretty awesome. I already have some saved for me, some reacquainted, and some shocked as I have heard them before. Thank you, you're helping this thread out quite a bit.

There were somic bluetooth headphones or something of the sort in this thread. I'll dig it up for you sooner or later today.

I'm listening to onkyo's new BT headphone and find it quite delightful
post #20444 of 33014

Those CK100pro's for $290 shipped is deal of the month!

Get them while You can, because they are out of production since October.

i have them and after listening to them it is hard to like any other IEM or headphone i own - CKS1000, IM50, ES700, HD25, TF10 because they are almost perfection. 

post #20445 of 33014

I get the feeling that the people here might not be the best crowd for the CK100PRO sig but can't deny that it's one of the most special-sounding things around and definitely something to try once in your lifetime. Just thought I'd say that in order to bait in any potentials. $280 or whatever the ebay price was, should be fine. Can't remember how much I got them used but it should have been around that, and far less than what it was when I bought it in-store new.

 

Yes, they are so nice that I bought them twice.
