I just figured that would remind you of the movie "Independence Day." :)

Hopefully before the sequals come out? smily_headphones1.gif

I'm embarrassed to say that when I first watched ID4 and heard the REM song, I thought it was the coolest thing ever. I wish I could go back in time and punch myself. redface.gif

LOL!!

 

One of, what I would describe, Epic movie moments for me where the music is basically the driving force of the scene(s) --> Pixies - Where is my mind on Fight Club!!

 

HOLY SHHHHHH!!! I stood up in the theater with my friends to sing along, and I guess everyone was looking at us like: "WTF?!?!" (not a lot of ppl know of the Pixies here)

 

Also, now that you mention REM, I LOOOOOVE the part on Tommy Boy when Farley and Spade are singing all those songs in the car and then mess up the lyrics for "It's the End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine)".

 

;-)

They're comedies starring the Late & Great Chris Farley.

dt880smile.png I had been on the phone (but on hold, to be sure) and my mind was still on "Sci-fi" when I happened upon your reference and thought... no, let's not let me expand further.rolleyes.gif

Yes, I wanted a different online handle for this place -- something related to music -- and thought driver 8 had a good ring to it. I also like the song, but it isn't my favorite thing of theirs. That would probably be Wolves Lower? If not that then something else from the IRS years. I kind of hated their sound going into the 90's.

 

I hadn't heard the entire album in ages, so I was only reminded of that recently when looking through the track listings.  I was like "hey, I know that guy!"  LOL  biggrin.gif  If I were to have a handle based on one of their song titles, it'd be FallOnMe for sure.

Personally, I'm rather curious what this new little amp, the F-35 Lightening, might sound like.

 

So he decided to name one of his amps just like the F35 STOVL Jet? LOL

Does it fly?!?

 

Well, he pretty much names everything he has after some kind of aircraft or another... sometimes cruise missiles though.

Got the white ones.

They seem well made, easily transportable (the earcups rotate!), very sensitive (so easily driven by phones, DAPs, etc.) and are comfortable enough. But don't know if it's me being sick, I kind of detect an unbalanced sound, as if more output is pumped more on one side than the other... but not on every track so, not sure what's going on there... lol. There's some weirdness on the upper-mids/lower treble, kind of metallic sounding. Bass is plentiful but in very good taste, a bit resonant it seems (lower-mids). Airy sounding, wide soundstage (compared to Mad Dogs).

 

But take all this with a grain of salt. Hopefully next week I'll feel better (and hear better). I have to AB against the Signature DJs...

 

FYI, it didn't change very much with burn-in.  Fairly similar, even after 120 hours of pink noise.  They do put out a very nice amount of bass without effing up the rest of the frequency range don't they?  Bit reminiscent of the AH-C300 in that respect, though much more of a mid-bass slam as opposed to gobs of sub-bass.

Hey, so here's a question for you guys...

 

I wanted to start a kind of review / comparison thread between a bunch of single driver earphone models. Rather than ranking them all (this one sounds better then that, etc) I only want to include what I think are reasonably good single driver earphones, really just to make a point that its not necessary to bolt on extra drivers (which seems to be the industry trend in some parts nowadays) because a lot of the shortcomings with single drivers no longer exist. The extra drivers just add phase and time alignment issues, don't play nice with different source equipment and add cost and complexity - something which I find annoying on an almost ethical level...

 

I am just trying to figure out how to structure the comparison.

 

If I compare them by price, it's not helpful because street price fluctuates wildly and I feel like price gives a false impression of relative quality when so far, the relationship seems tenable to me at best. 

 

I could group them together by sound signatures like ClieOS but then I do not want to get into horrible semantic debates about whether or not so and so IEM is REALLY V-shaped because our terminology is so imprecise.

 

I feel almost like grouping them in terms of build quality / comfort but this strikes me as bad in many ways too.

 

How would you guys approach it?

In Spreadsheet fashion: Got 3 parameters, here's the results from each one. Reason being, "x" may prove important for one group looking at earphones, results from "y" may appeal to a whole 'nuther crowd. And there'd be no extra typing from you... imagine! wink_face.gif

Yeah, I've actually thought about this for some time - in relation to all headphones and not just IEMs of course.  And I'm kinda with Silent here.  Actually, the solution I came up with involves a massive database that let's people customize what THEY want to see/compare.  Of course, then we run into the problem of data gathering/entry, which would be a monumental task in and of itself.  Ain't nobody got time for that!
