Holy.

INTERESTING NEW TOPIC ALERT!!!

 

Okay, so which two headphones should re-populate the species?

 

The Denon AH-D7000. The brain can only micro monitor and analyze for so long before it begins to tire. It (the brain) will begin to take short-cuts and take them often, slipping into macro monitor mode for enjoyment and relaxation. This headphone will takewink_face.gif the species far.

I was so bored I decided to surf around on my phone and wound up on a certain online storefront and threw even more bones down on a new piece of gear.
New thread contest!!!! Whoever guesses correctly what I just bought gets a 1000 internetz and a date with MuppetFace. In case Mupps happens to be the one who guesses correctly she gets... I don't know...a date with Sandra Bullock?? Now that I think about it maybe I'll keep the date with Sandra Bullock and instead I'll send Warren or Lee dressed up like a drag queen. Man I need sleep I'm really starting to become delusional.


No we'll send Miss Mann (I was shocked to find out that is a real woman actually lol ;)

Thank you, it was quite a sight to see.  And because the outer casing was all metal, it was heavy as ****.  The thing even had an optical out IIRC, but I never used it, not even once.  frown.gif

I always thought it had to be audio gear... I guess not.  If this works, Ima ransack the house for all kinds of non-audio crap that I don't want.

The Sennheiser Orifice and a woodie of some sort.

I've kept aquariums throughout my life, including some pretty high-end salt water setups. Fish can be quite expensive. I'm more worried about the logistics behind such a trade. Shipping fish isn't so tricky, but the seller should be careful (s)he sells to someone who actually knows what they're doing. And the buyer should make sure the seller knows what (s)he's doing.

 

Still, I applaud such things. Makes this hobby more interesting.

They only made one woodie, and it had issues with cracking! You could get some nice custom cups from Martin tho.

Hey, I never said it didn't!

 

 

 

 

 

But the idea was "repopulate the headphone species." Poor HE-5 is going to have a hard time with that doncha think?
