You can eat proper food for $3-4 a day if you do it right. It's basic but it works. Chicken and rice/potatoes and water. There are other alternatives but it does get slightly more expensive. I mix those meals into my current diet for both diet reasons and cost savings, but for a while in 2011 I ate that meal 3-4 times a day every day for 5 months to lose 75 lbs (in combination with exercise).

Oh and I also saved ~$1700 during that period by eating that way instead of how I did before.

Reshell with added drivers from UM is nice.

An extra 450 if you add 3 drivers, but then you have a 6 driver custom with 535 sound sig only much better :)

Not only money, but a chance to explore other headphones wink.gif

 

But seriously as a broke student money is hard to come by.

Companies that do remolds should offer "re-tweaking service" --- take an SE535 but don't add drivers, just change it to dual bore, change damper selctions, tube lengths, and crossover configuration. I'd go for that.

I don't prefer the velours over the pleather earpads but I also don't prefer the pleathers as well. They both have their pros and cons.

 

I prefer velours when driven out of a powerful desktop amp like the Lyr.

I prefer pleathers when driven out of a portable amp like the HP-P1.

 

When driven out of a desktop amp, the velour sounds more open, more accurate imaging and a bit wider soundstage. The treble is improved and has some very nice air and sounds natural. Mids are tonally accurate and are more forward and bass has lots of impact and is very, very tight.

With the pleathers, the bass is overpowering the mids and the treble. Mids are a bit subdued and the treble isn't quite as sweet as it could be. It sounds also more closed and lose a bit of speed.

 

With a portable amp, it's an entirely different story. With the velours, you can feel that the bass is light, the mids are on the bright side but with the pleathers, there's much more body on the bass, the mids is sweeter and warmer and the highs are nice. 

 

So overall, it depends on the amplifier. I only use my HE-500 with velours ever since I got my Lyr but there are some instances that I can only use my portable amp and that's where I use pleathers (sometimes I forget to change though)

Is that a stress ball, DF? If so a smiley is just the right thing to have on a stress ball to not crush it when you're, well, stressed.

Yep it's a stress ball. They gave them out at work about 2 years ago. Most of the guys either gave theirs to their kids or threw them out. I thought it looked kind of cute so I kept mine.

I was planning on arranging the various submissions for the mixtape this weekend, but I'm still feeling rather unwell. If anyone wants to take it upon themselves to do it instead this time please feel free.

 


 

 

On another forum someone linked to a Taylor Swift YouTube video where bleating goats were edited in throughout the song. That got me thinking: scientists should splice her with a goat and make her into a satyr.

 

Satyr Swift.
