The diary entries of a little girl in her 30s! ~ Part 2 - Page 1395

Interested in getting either of these ATs:

http://www.audio-technica.com/cms/headphones/44d753a585763c61/index.html

Yes, this is a sports IEM, I'm aware of that. Mostly I'm in one of those phases where I want to go jogging but don't want to wet any of my other IEMs with sweat. It's cheapish too.

Different mounting, and that's why it's still intriguing.

Now this is interestingly intriguing. Not rated for "exercise" though. And the latter two have some "washable" rating on it, whereas this is, from the looks of it, as waterproof as most normal IEMs, which is close to crap. :P

Lastly, this is interesting in a whole other way. It says "hybrid" but it's more in the sense of of EarPods "hybrid" than DD + BA. I find that the Earpods is excellent at being a good all rounder if you don't want something jammed into your ear canals, and seeing this makes me happy. Besides, this could be a better jogging IEMs since it's not IEMs and thus I can at least here the car that's going to squash me coming. But I figure it might be as water resistant as normal IEMs.

HMM IF ONLY THERE'S A COUPLE OF YOUTUBE REVIEWERS HERE THAT COULD HELP WINK WINK. j/k

Lol.

 

I've actually come to find that in-ears aren't necessarily the best options for jogging, because when you run your ear canal compresses and expands and it makes a constant thumping noise. It also gets a bit uncomfortable over time. Earbuds don't have the same problem. 

 

I actually got a pair of these to test this theory http://www.sony.com.au/product/mdr-as200

 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v80), quality = 100

 

They're very cheap, they very secure, water resistant, and while I don't think they sound amazing they do the job pretty admirably. I had the predecessor of this earbud as well (the old one looks like a kidney) and what is awesome is since the entire earhook wraps around the ears there is virtually no way for it to get dislodged or flop around on the outside of your ears like some earhooks I've found. 

 

Plus, lower noise isolation means you won't get hit by a car or something.

 

Your post actually prompted me to finally open the box and give them a proper listen. They're not going to win awards but I think they sound better than the $19 bucks I paid for them or something like.

Hmm, I think I saw them in a Sony Style store or two. But really though, all I want is more earbuds like the EarPods. It works amazingly well IMO.

I suppose it makes sense that thought is simply "inner speech", but does that necessarily mean it would be understandable to someone else? Or is the mechanism for forming the syntax and phonetics separate from the inner thought itself?

No explanation necessary. ;)

The earpods are NOT made for my ears. They keep falling out, and they hurt me if I push them in hard enough. I once started bleeding when I had decided that they had to fit me. I couple of stiches, a concussion and a few painkillers later I came to the conclusion that they simply would not.

 

I use them though for remote controlling the camera when it's on the gorillapod at a bad place. Works great for that. I've thought of cutting away the earpods themselves as they add bulk to my camera remote.

Woah, that's kind of extreme. Sorry to hear that, cdc.


Well, maybe it works for 90% of the people. :P

Yeah, I figured I'd try that "SQ above all" thing some people do here...

post #20919 of 21761
it's almost always comfort >= sq > all for me. if my ears needed stitches, sure as hell I stop using it even if it makes me hear angels and gave me orgasms.

Yeah... comfort has to go hand in hand with sq. That's why my primary cans are Beyers. biggrin.gif

I think you'd like the Bose IE2's...................silicone rubber covers of the working part and three different sizes to get a good fit without being jammed in your ear.  I like them for running.

OSTRY KC06 quick impressions: somewhere in between a more analytical GR07 and a less damped / more dynamic RE0.

 

Best sound I've heard for $60 in a long time. :smile_phones:

It's a cold day today. Looks like a good day for a  bowl of clam chowder. :D

post #20924 of 21761
White or Red? I prefer New England (white) - and I want it so thick that the spoon will almost stand up by itself. Served with a good piece of sourdough bread - my favorite soup!!

Clams are a magical food. Linguini with clam sauce, fried clams, heck, even clam sushi - the fresher the better.

I prefer white. Also love it really thick. Crackers go good also. I'm sure sour dough would be real good too. When sizzlers was here they had really good clam chowder. Would just go to the buffet to eat that lol.
