Yes I really want to buy one and do a review because it just seems like it would be a fun thing to review. (I also have an underwater camera). But since it is so cold at the moment I am afraid. I am not going to go to a public heated swimming pool with a camera. You do a review lol!

Yes it does, i really do like the design, it also looks generally quite practical as a wireless player. I also can confirm it uses drivers from the EX series and are 13.5mm thats cool. I have a SONY waterproof camera, it is actually what i use to take pictures of all my headphones for review on the funky backgrounds.

 

This was July 31 2011 so dont judge guys:

 

 

 

Yes as i a lifgueard i do not recommend taking a camera to a public pool, lets say we do not have the best opinions on people that do, especially those who are alone and male.

 

I may get a pair to review and do an underwater photo shoot of :D

How cute that the Wizard thinks the comparison will go like that. Of course he'll compare it like that; that's his product.

Urgh, I'm sorry for the bile.

You should get one of these http://www.sony.com.au/product/nwz-w273 and tell me how it works haha, I'm really curious :0

Curious. Seems cheap enough. That ZAPPIN feature thing sounds intriguing I might add.

It's a really cool product if it works. I'm surprised its only $99.

ZAPPIN is the very last marketing term I would have used for an an electronics product that is meant to be used underwater and connected to your head.

I don't see much of a point in re-posting Wizard's posts in this thread, as it's only going to stir up peoples' sentiments on both sides of the fence (and in turn annoy the people who don't care either way). We've been there, done that. I'd rather not have my thread turn into a Heir complaint forum. 

 

If it rubs you the wrong way, just report the post. MOTs aren't supposed to be talking about direct competitor's products anyway.

 


 

I've been listening to the K3003 all morning. There's been a lot of drama surrounding this little earphone, but really I've always felt it sounded great. The whole bass incoherency or driver mismatch thing has never been enough of a problem to my ears for me to make a big deal out of it, and there are even times where I can't really detect it (like this morning). 

 

I also find it's a fairly comfortable earphone. Thankfully it sounds good without a deep insertion, as the size of it makes that an issue for me. There isn't much pressure---if any---that results from insertion either. Just the typical "fullness" from silicon tips. In contrast, FAD's balanced armatures tend to have too much pressure to be comfortable for me.

And that's bad how?

It would be a cultural gap in his education to miss out.

The genre nazis around my neck of the woods if they saw your post would demand Nadja be classed as experimental/atmospheric drone. Unfortunately we have some very bad genre nazis up here. Nice choice on music, I never had you pegged as a doomer. Cirith Ungol, St Vitus, old Candlemass, and Solitude Aeternus fan on this end of the screen.

The V!  The mighty, mighty V!  I've heard that, if modded properly, it has the potential to be a W.

HOLY

 

Where did you see that? Are you crazy? I would have bought that in a heartbeat. Even if you didn't like it the resale alone :s

 

Um, yeah!  Wow, that's an insanely cheap price!  +1 on the mental instability inerrogative.  If you see it again, get it.

In that sense, are the head-fi forums not like an airport?** Only for a lot of folks, the flight never gets boarded. They just stay in the lobby milling about.

 

Only because we're still trying to figure out where we want to go right?  In the meantime, we'll gather around a pseudo bar and regale each other with stories of past journeys and destinations.

Liquid Lightning headphone amplifiers... and the upcoming Liquid Spark!

Huh.. You got a point there. EDIT: uwa.... the price here (Moscow) locally bumped it up above 100 USD.

Doom makes me smile. Though at times, I find the line between doom/sludge to be nonexistant. For some newer bands, check out Pallbearer, 40 Watt Sun, and a ton of folks on Bandcamp whose names I can't remember. I'm actually listening to the new Cathedral album right now, and it ain't too bad. But let's be honest, everyone wants the new Black Sabbath. Geezer bass man, I can't resist it. 

 

 

Agreed with earlier post btw, Heir is butthurt target #1 right now. Try to keep it out of here :)

Comment from a review of the new Daft Punk album on Pitchfork. Interresting for audiophiles...

 

"...RAM is one of the best engineered records in many years. If people still went into stereo shops and bought stereos regularly, like they did during the era Daft Punk draw from, this record, with its meticulously recorded analog sound, would be an album to test out a potential system, right up there with Steely Dan’s Aja and Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon. Daft Punk make clear that one way to “give life back to music” is through the power of high fidelity."

For any Blues/rock/clapton fan out there......

Thank you for taking the time for this rich Dump ! Thee Oh Sees I knew and like. The rest I did not know. It is very interesting, even though some of it is too much on the experimental and / or minimal side for my tastes. Keep it coming !

 

Breakpoint by Nadja I really liked.

 

Do you know these guys ?

When I think experimental drone, I think more of sound installation guys like Yoshi Wada or Gregg Kowalsky's Tape Chant project. Or Birchville Cat Motel (which I also included in the post). Or Phil Niblock. Or Fear Falls Burning. Or Hototogisu.

 

I'd classify Aidan Baker's solo stuff as closer to experimental dronescapes, but Nadja has definite doom roots. Similar to Skullflower.

 

I'm honestly into most genres of music. I know some folks like to say "I like all music!" and then proceed to give a long list of exceptions, but in my case I genuinely try to appreciate most everything. Of course there are always exceptions. In my case I think polka and polka-influenced stuff like Tejano fall into that category.

 

But yeah, I like "classic doom" and NWOBHM stuff like St. Vitus, Witchfinder General, Reverend Bizarre, Pagan Alter, etc. Dig the Sabbs, of course. We also had a little discussion about Electric Wizard a while back. I tend to go for more funeral-style dirgey stuff like Mournful Congregation, Esoteric, Funeral, Worship, etc. Also love sludgey ultra-doom like Corrupted, Moss, Monarch...

 

Wish Noothgrush was still around. <3

So, you like the light frothy musical styles.......
