My review sample of the RHA MA350, and the recent talk of IEMs made me feel flippity-floppity with IEMs purchase again. Suggestions for a few IEMs around the MDR7550 price max.


IDk why I keep doing this and never am going to buy any. :\ I guess my disinterest in audio is a thinly-veiled lie I made to myself.

Better for your wallet. I'm too much of an impulse buyer and as a results I'll have a lot of new audio gear to test over the next few weeks.

I totally relate to the whole IEM thing. On top of the arguments you mention, one is key for me : the miniturization and concentration of technology. I think IEMs are much more fascinating objects than cans.


Well someone referred to my 1Plus2s in an email as "Trannies" lol :P.

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.


Females can also be skilled in gaming. I guess I get the point of men being ashamed of getting owned by a "chick" but come on lol. It's just a game. Get over it people.... I actually even vs female players in competitive 1 on 1 tournament style matches and they kick ass. I've lost a game or two to them so I give them props. Still I was playing with 250+ ping on a euro server so that really plays a big roll as well. Not saying they lack in skill because they are very good players (Phon1X, Commander, TheSis; old school players). Then again that is probably what intrigues the Euros about me is that I am able to hang with them with such crazy pings lol. I suppose in that, loosing to someone with such high ping can be quite humiliating.... I'd have to admit I'd also be pissed to get owned having low ping vs someone with high ping.... redface.gif

Alert! The greatest pc game ever made is being re-released tomorrow in an improved/polished/fit-for-Win7 version: http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2013/02/13/many-questions-system-shock-2-comes-to-gog/

You can't call yourself a true gamer unless you've experienced the awesomeness that is System Shock 2. If you liked Bioshock/Mass Effect/whatever, now is your chance to see their progenitor in all it's horrifying glory. Enjoy!

Torment works in Win 7, or at least it does on my machine.

I know, just poking fun at his assertion that SS2 was the greatest PC game ever made
post #5949 of 21761
It's either BG2 or PS:T, I can't decide. Both are the best of the breed.

I've got that T-Peos thingamajig here. Dunno what that retails for, but I'll be giving it a listen soon before sending it on its way to someone else.

 

All my favorite IEMs seem to be around the $400 mark lately... namely the Heaven VI and Flat4. If you're patient you should wait for the new Ocharaku entry-level IEMs to materialize. Those hazelnut / atom bomb looking ones.

I see that some folks here have never experienced a truly awesome pc game before. Only philistines would put Planescape or BG above the System Shocks. On a more serious note, the folks behind the SS games went on to create the Thief and Deus Ex series. Not to mention the original Terra Nova mech-game, also known as "mechs done right"....

Sorry, nothing profoundly insightful to say today. As always.

Is this initiation or something? rolleyes.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.

Got ninja'd (was going to post bubble). They usually start with these on the first few terms of CS, from what I hear. Always good to see another programmer!

And I'll be getting it right after you biggrin.gif (planx & me in same city). Excited to see what warranted all that hype (although it's died down a lot)

I'm sure if i searxh for some hype thread I'd what the t-peos thingamajig is. Sounds like one of those "giant killers" thing again.

Hmm maybe I should, I'm in no rush to get new toys.

Gotcha. I run into them occasionally in other places too, but when it's online, I usually think of people being either of the genders if it's heavily implied and just go with it.

I'm still in that phase where my journey is one of discovery, and not a desperate attempt to claw my way out of a pit of headphones (or IEMs) that are unable to distinguish themselves from one another.  Unlike many of you, I have the wonderful advantage of coming to this hobby rather recently.  As such, almost everything is new to me.  And being in no particular rush helps me pace myself.  I guess you could say that, in some ways, I've got virgin earholes paired with the innocence of a noob.

 

 

If you're really lucky, you just might get the apology.  But I highly doubt they'll give you the stand.

 

 

LOL, I'm pretty sure Silent is not female... but I'm also pretty sure that DubstepGirl and roma101 are.

I thought roma was a dude! I haven't seen dubstep on the other hand.

Oh wait... you're actually an author of ... I know it has silent and her in it... WAIT. You weren't joking? Oh, it's ok. Maybe you women just started copying your typing/writing style...

There is also Soozieq, Poetic & Mischa23v. There are more ladies in this hobby than you'd be led to believe but it still is largely a male-dominated hobby none-the-less. :)

I c... well I haven't seen any of them rolleyes.gif

 

Anyways, has anyone tried the AD2000x from AT?
