@Gelocks, speaking of which, what is your opinion on Dit Da Jow liniment?

 

LOL... bruises huh? ;-)

 

I believe I did used it a couple of times and it was Ok (it felt good) but stopped buying it and letting my body heal normally by itself... part of the reason was that

we had classes Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays so we didn't really had time to "heal". The body after a while got used to the blocking and being hit in the same areas over and over (forearms, shins, etc.)

yup, all over the place XDD

If my classes were less frequent I might give it a try, but I also have 4 classes a week like you did, with little time to recover. Not to mention, the liniments are fairly expensive...

Agree on the expensive part.

If you want, you could try it the first couple of weeks and then try another liniment sold on Walgreens or any other pharmacy and see if you get the same effect but cheaper until you get use to them ;-)

I picked up my nostalgia SRH840's yesterday and gave them a brief listen to ensure they worked and, having done so right after listening to my 334's... wow, $1,200 really makes a difference!  I couldn't enjoy them at all :/ While it hurts a bit to have my positive regard for the 840's so tarnished, it's also nice to get the occasional reminder that the law of diminishing returns isn't as harsh as I've been led to believe.

 


 

@MuppetFace: Is it still possible to buy the Paradox from LFF?  I remember their availability being discussed here before, but I can't remember what came of that.  I could easily justify the purchase to myself be selling my unused Lyr, which I should be doing soon.

LFF was considering not selling any Paradoxes to head-fiers because he was trying to avoid getting saddled with a MOT tag. Now that he has one however, he's pretty much "open for business." 

 

Here's the site for his distributor: http://referencesounds.com/products.html

 

It gives you an idea of what he has available. AFAIK, the main difference between the basic model and the more expensive ones is that LFF uses super-fancy automotive paint and clear coats on the cups, powder coats the adjustment rods, and recables it for dual entry. Those prices include the stock T50RP, which his supplier orders for you, rather than you sending in a T50RP.

 

You can always send LFF a PM too if you want to send in a T50RP for modding (in which case, the cost wont be as much as listed on that site, I believe).

Sweet.  Thanks!  I tried googling around for a site before, but couldn't find that page.

Looks like me and Driver 8 are both about to become part of the Paradox club.

 

@MuppetFace

Do we get official member rings and are you going to teach us the secret handshake so we can get into the secret Paradox Owners Only Club Meetings.

I haven't ordered yet; am still trying to decide whether or not I really want them as I've been very, very happy with the 334's as of late.

 

Didn't the cups used to have different exteriors?  I don't remember them utilizing the T50RP cup at all.

No idea, as far as I know the only aesthetic cup changes they offer was a nicer paint job.

Nice. I liked the XBA-3 more than the 4. That said the XBA house sound never really clicked with me but it was an impressive attempt nonetheless. I wish they redesigned housings for their EX series though.

It seems like it is a bass head earphone?

Yeah the 4 was really too bassy for me. The 3s were much better.

 

On another note: Good news for those of us living in "budget-fi"

Bleh, even though the XBA-3 was the one that I liked the most out of the whole XBA series line-up, for the local pricing here in Singapore I would never buy one myself, neither would I recommend them to my friends lol. There are so many dual-driver BA's out there that sounds way better to my ears for their price, compared to the XBA-3. But for USD 100 dollars, I think you still got a pretty good bargain there, good job.

For all the Sony attempts so far in recent yrs, apart from my MDR-EX90/CD2000's I'm very very impressed with what they did for the recent in-ears like the MDR-7550/EX800ST/MDR-EX1000 models. Has fast enough transients/attack for Metal/Rock stuffs, good and punchy bass quality for Electronica/Electro-pop genres and very excellent for Classical/Pop vocals as well. Very hard to fault them unless you have specified issues with them in terms of fit, but the EX monitors manages to fit really well with my ears in terms of ergonomics fit so I really liked my EX800ST, one of my best buys in terms of portable IEMs. Their isolation factor would probably be the only thing I would fault them, if I have to pick out their flaws compared to other IEMs.

And why did you gave the disappointed "sigh" earlier regarding the ATH-ESW11 LTD's prices when I shared them with you? For a limited edition portable cans, you mean you didn't expect that sort of pricing? biggrin.gifbiggrin.gif
