I stand corrected. Oh well.

 

This is one of the best things I've heard this week: Classic Gang of Four on gamelan.

Wow. If that's you in your avatar, you look like one of my best friends from undergrad. I guess there are only so many different gene combinations to go around.

 

*insert slightly creepy "you're pretty" comment here*

 

Back to studying..

Oh, and re: mission Monet... I read an impression somewhere that the phones are quite bright and heavy up top. This might be something to consider, especially since you mentioned in the old diary thread that you were leaning towards darker phones nowadays.

It makes me think of when Sylverant noticed google gave different results on his laptop and his desktop computer, since he searched differently on them and then the search results tailor themselves to you.  I think his comment was "then what's the point?".

 

If they'll reshell any two universal IEM's of my choice, then Kabuki is on her way.

 

Geez, you've got some memory Kiteki, it took me a little while to remember that. wink.gif

I wanted something small for the gym and outside, and it accepts 64GB cards, so why not =/.  (I feel so... dirty).

 

My Teclast X19+ is acting quite glitchy now.  It's rather ironic isn't it, when my 1990's Sony Walkman is playing perfect?


I can't help but wonder how long a car will last these days with so many functions now being controlled by computers. It's not gonna be pretty when my parents Dodge minivan dies...

Yeah, I've seen measurements for them and read some impressions. The sound signature seems to be of such a nature as to have lots of air and render female vocals well, hence the "tuned for anime soundtracks" descriptor.

 

My relationship with brighter headphones is... complex. For me, brighter signatures are completely hit or miss. When executed well they're some of my favorites (like the now sadly defunct Sony EX700, the Qualia 010, the Final FI-BA-SS, certain Stax Lambdas, etc.). When executed poorly (most PROline Ultrasones, Grados, etc.) then I can't stand them. Similarly, I love some darker headphones and despise others. I suppose in and of itself, treble presence doesn't make or break it for me, but really it depends more on the overall balance and context of the sonic signature.

 

Specifically with regard to IEMs, I think there's something of an art to making a good bright IEM. It's like there's this lineage of which the Sony EX700 is part and certain CIEMs like the Rooth LS8 [and maybe the Monet] continue.

Tom is selling his Frankenstein CIEMs!

 

One-of-a-kind, and can be "upgraded" a number of ways. Like playing an RPG. Only with earphones.

 

I really want to see these go to a diary regular....

+1  Who is that BTW?  Not that I know a lot of actors/musicians these days, but I just can't place the face.  Oddly familiar, but have no idea really.

The new girl looks very analog, like Kodak Elite Chrome.

The best compliment?

Calling someone analog

And not digital.

I rather like the one you got up now Mups, Bravo madam bravo for coming out behind the screen. I'm sending you a PM concerning operation Monet. I know someone who hangs out on these boards who lives in Tokyo. He's a rather helpful sort and I'm guessing you know him too.

I need to start posting in here more: sadly my life is rather boring so I'll just join in the closest conversation ^_^

 

Wait.......MF has a new pic? 0.o

Gah *comes up for air*

 

I been busy again :P

 

In reference to much earlier comments, I actually prefer the SA3000 in the end, mostly because it was more comfortable and the singe entry cable was convenient. However the SA5000 is a thing of beauty.

 

In a fit of madness I ordered the Sony MDR-1R and bought the Sennheiser Momentum, with the idea of letting one ago after conducting some sort of closed circumaural portable deathmatch with the M50's and TMA-1 Studios included.

 

I'm actually somewhat confused to read the comments about the Momentum being boomy, since to my ears it sounds like that regular Sennheiser house sound: clean, warm tilt, but not overly dark or bloomy. (For reference I consider something like the early batch P5 I have to be boomy). It sounds just a bit thicker than my 7550's. I'm not sure actually how much I like the sound at this very early stage; it seems amazingly competent and relaxing but doesn't particularly grab me. Comfortable and classy like nothing else though.

 

Maybe it's just because I listen to too much synthesized instruments, but the TMA-1 Studios are really a bit of a winner to my ears. I like they way they sound synthetically punchy, like an electronic drum machine. The physical build is reassuring and monolithically beautiful to me, and they are also comfortable except for the too-heavy coiled cable for which I'm supposedly on some waiting list for a replacement.

 

From memory the MDR-1R was like something in between these two, so at the end of this I will have a favoured portable circumaural :3

 

Edit: Oh and happy birthday Coq! And Kiteki, I played Shadowrun on my SNES and you wake up with a bomb in your head and it really scared me because it was the first time I've ever played a game where the impending doom is tied to something happening in real time so yeah lets not play that pretty please?!.

Hey a_recording how r u.  This thread has some cool people innit.

 

 

I moved to Indonesia around 5 months ago in case you missed that.

 

 

I wonder what shadowrun music (chiptune, glitch etc.) sounds like on FXD80's. =D

 

 

The most suspenseful and scary game I ever played was on the NES, then I got older and videogames weren't scary anymore. =(

 

 

Edit:  I didn't know the story was you wake up with a bomb in your head lol.
