The purple line is supposedly from LCD-2 and the red is from the Mad Dogs with new pads. It looks pretty impressive.

 

And they look pretty good too!

 

Now I have to get a pair to see for my self. So excitebike.

Be careful Max, I had the nastiest tinnitus with the LCD-2s to get that detail.

Those look very nice! So nice, that I better stop looking.

Just so you know guys, I didn't find that myself, but I saw someone linking to that blog post in the D2-5-7000 appreciation thread.

 

Yeah, agreed, they do indeed look good in quite a few ways. I'd like to see a few comparisons of the LCD-2 and the Mad Dogs with the Alpha pads to know the sonic differences between them. The FR charts look similar, (I don't know how they differ with noise, and other measurements) but do they sound similar or are they still very different beasts altogether?

Christmas by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Kyarypamyupamyu, how can anyone resist?

I remember a conversation with some friends a while ago about what will replace the cutout bin at the record store, once record stores and CDs are obsolete. I guess this is the answer.

Now you've made us all feel self-conscious about posting here.

Okay, so you have 10 ball bearings that look and feel identical.  They all weigh the same, with the exception of one, which is of a different weight than the rest.  However, you have no idea whether that oddball bearing is heavier or lighter.  All you know is that it does not weigh the same as each of the other nine.  Using a simple balance scale (two-sided scale with no markings of any kind) - and only three separate weightings - please isolate the ball bearing that is of a different weight than the others.  smile.gif

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

I hire Neo as a contractor/consultant to rewind time back to when the factory made shipment, and tighten up the ball bearing factory's QC process.

Pick your poison. wink.gif

 

Though, it sounds like there should be additional rules to your question. Like, you can only weigh 3 balls on each side at a time, or you have to do it in a specific amount of times or else the time bomb explodes, you're in a movie and that oddball bearing is the key to unlock riches beyond your wildest dreams so you get an adrenaline dump that immobilizes one hand and so on.

Shhhh!

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Yeah, some diary members have met him in person. It's just fun to perpetuate the mystery.

There are other females who post on head-fi. Some are more vocal about it than others---for instance dubstepgirl---while others don't advertise the fact. I know of two individuals who post here in the diary who fall under the later heading. There's a female mod here on head-fi, boomana, but she hasn't been active in a while. There's also a female head-fier who lives fairly close to me and is a professor too, which is pretty cool.

 

Off the top of my head I can think of 11 ladies here on head-fi. Those are just the ones I know about, obviously. I'm sure there are more.

I've gotten quite a few... interesting... PMs to that effect. Some are amusing, while others are actually pretty creepy.

 

When I first joined I mentioned being a girl in my profile, because I also had a huge list of gear I owned and wanted to make some kind of statement or something silly. Like, "hey girls can be into this stuff too." I honestly didn't expect anyone to even notice or care on a headphone website (unlike, say, xbox live or something). Since then I've taken down any such descriptor along with my list of gear, because the random comments and PMs get to be a little much.

 

I learned back in high school that mentioning your gender / sex in certain places online resulted in a lot of unwanted attention. Most "gamer girls" for instance were either a.) bored guys or b.) girls who wanted attention more than anything else, even if it came in the form of sexual harassment. Of course you also had your gamer grrrrrrls who were very vocal about being proud of their gender. They'd brag about kicking the asses of male players. But in those cases you'd damn well better be a skilled player, because those male players were going to go out of their way to target you as a result of being emasculated. Some folks would like nothing more than to embarrass someone like that. Most female players just put male on their user profiles to go under the radar.

Please, do yourself a favor and add the Paradox by LFF to your list of considerations if you're considering modded T50RPs. Thinking back to your posts about wanting something different than a V-shaped signature, and wanting something like the more monitor-type MDR-7550, the Paradox is an easy recommendation to make. I feel it competes with---even surpasses---the LCD-2 and HE-500.

Just want to say that I hold this thread and its inhabitants to that of the utmost esteem. Among some of the most profound and intense conversations I've heard on any lounge thread to date. Brilliant stuff, I often link friends to many of the gems that gets churned out here.

Thank you for taking the time to express your feelings. It really means a lot to me.

Not that it will have much bearing on how I will act in their presence in this forum (well it will be if it's in the anime thread or related to anime in any way shape or form since I will discard my diplomatic facade) but that's still refreshing/surprising to know.

Speaking of online wierdness, back in the 90's I was a regular on some gaming newsgroups(that's what we had before forums), and saw some things that convinced me that when online it was best to remain as anonymous as possible. Specifically, there was this game developer that would literally hunt down anyone who made negative comments about his games, and show up on their doorstep! Mentioning his name was like saying "Candyman" three times in the mirror. Maybe that was the desired effect...
