I wasn't even aware of their existence. For simplicity's sake nowadays I just tune out whenever a sentence contains the word IEM but not FitEar.

But with Rin I'm never sure whether he's being bitingly sarcastic or not. When he writes it comes through for me as if he's just being sarcastic all the time in order to create that sense of impartiality. Or maybe it's just me. Probably just me.

It happened one night... found myself gazing at MF's avatar... in silence... before long... I noticed two very distinct things: my breathing... and my head nodding in approval.

The song itself is presumably about Jamie coping with the death of his pet cat, as well as reflecting on the debauched state of his love life, a prospect he finds pathetic and disturbing.

thanks for the background

I suddenly made the connection with the cat toy on his shoulder on the album cover of 'Fabulous Muscles'.

Have you, by chance, watched, or was watching at the time, the Silence of the Lambs?

 

Because that would make the whole situation take on a significantly different undertone.

At risk of sounding like I've never been out of the house, never seen "Silence of the Lambs." Or "Misery." And seen my first Star Wars movie in 2007 - "Phantom Menace" or sumthin' like that. blink.gif

I never could watch a whole star wars movie. 30 min max, of one or two.

 

And seen my first Indiana Jones last year.

star wars was might fine cool.gif but speaking of it... I think they're coming out with a new movie? Not sure if it was a dream or me skimming over things and it being real. 

 

I've yet to see an Indiana Jones from beginning to end/grasp the story, since I usually end up watching it while it's being played on a channel.

But we know power ain't everything; what also matters is not only the quantity of amplification but also its quality. In this respect, do flagship CIEM's scale highly with some well-designed portable amps? Or will I be able to hear only a minor improvement at best, even with decent amps?

 

It's not absolutely necessary buy hey, I like to go to the extreme and have put together various little combos. Personally, I can no longer stand to listen to my iPhone/iPod Classic unamped. I can tolerate it if say my amp needs charging but the second it's charged the iPod gets mated to my DAP. If you don't want a brick in your pocket I would wait for the DX50 to drop. Supposedly it's the size of an iPod only thicker. There's also the DX100 and the Studio V which sound very good but those are known to have UI issues. The DX50, we'll have to wait and see what first impressions will be as far as UI and sound quality is concerned.

+1 If it wasn't so hissy with CIEM's that amp would slay. I'm hoping when the SM64 arrives with it's lower sensitivity and higher ohm load the RX MKIII-B will pair nicely with it.


I don't know about anyone else but the second this mystery amp MF has talked about is released I'm immediately jumping on it. If it's blown MF's socks off that much the thing must sound completely no holds barred crazy. Oh Romy, you're such a bad influence on me.

CIEM's have other drawbacks though: comfort, timbre, resale, fit, impedance matching etc.  I really want to get customs in the future also,but I didn't really use my last pair much...
hmm... I see... Well, if I get any CIEMs, they won't be for a while, and of course they should have new ones with different soundstage and the like, so I'd look more into it then. wink.gif

You're definitely in the right thread I think.  wink.gif
