Can someone tell me what the difference is between the Discovery Thread and The Lab?

 

The Lab was created for the topic mentioned above originally, although I feel its progressed into playing an important role of central station for many of the newer reviewers these days, a location they discuss upcoming reviews, products and generally stimulates content on the site (not particularly myself though). I drop in there and sway them off-topic sometimes (which I shouldn't do) though that's the general way I view their thread. The discovery thread still has a purpose though the Chinese IEM thread is very popular full-time these days.

 

I think its a good thing as well all the Chinese budget IEMs are pushed into one thread, if they all had their own they'd probably require their entirely own subforum.

Reading the 2 threads now (I didn't go back to the beginning of The Lab, have been reading Discovery for centuries now, or seems that way at least), they seem to overlap and basically do the same thing now (not that it's a bad thing...). The fact that Peter123 felt he had to post his latest (and earlier ones) in both highlighted this to me. No big deal, though. Minor in the scheme of things these days...

I think Peter (and others) do that for maximum exposure, he likes those reputation points and views lol. Anyway some of those guys in the lab put in some serious writing time, many pushing out a couple of reviews a week. Good on them I say!

Thanks buddy! :beerchug:

 

Let'em burn baby burn! 150 hours or so. As you are aware, many have written them off due to their "out of box" sound, only to repurchase them again, let them burn in, and then fall deeply in love lol. 

 

Also, they really respond to pad changes. If you want the bass to be leaned out a bit, it seems the new AQ velours will do the trick.

 

My understanding is that the Nighthawks are tuned differently than the typical higher end audiophile headphones. For example, the treble detail is there, but not so pronounced (which I love because they are so non-fatiguing). But that may not be for everyone. We will see how they work for you my friend!

Yep buddy... I don't know what it needs yet (until after burn-in), but it's good there are sound shaping options. Still, I don't expect it to surpass the T1 v2, but if it gets in that direction it's a winner. So far, the bass is the most magical art to me, but I don't think I'll listen to it again untill I have least 144 hours on it (which should be by Monday evening). Thanks again for the hype man! lol

Thread Starter 
The other threads have their purposes. This thread was started as a discovery of sorts to us. Anyone reading and or contributing to this thread that discover something new for them. I like it when guys discover a phone we found out about several years ago that end up having a dedicated thread of their own. And so a bit open ended yes but how else we gonna find out about whats new.

Case in point. Jant and nick does a wonderful job of finding stuff so new it surprises every time. Not to mention all the new phone reviews done by the regulars. Which always take time to post. I personally like how guys mention about there reviews here. Helps all of us discover something new. The truth is there will always be new inovation I like to think it will be the guys on this thread that will help figure out what is up.

I think its more than discovery these days. Some people here have helped in tuning or giving feedback, which is really good for community.
