It's amusing being a Chinese person in China who can't speak Chinese. (or at least in Shanghai). Everyone was just bemused.

 

 

Arrgh get better soon!

 

Also I hope your body does not become a natural incubator for some bioweapon level super virus.


Would you also consider the prat on them slower as well? (than say a BA with fast prat). :)

That album art reminded me of the movie Thir13en Ghosts, where there's a character sliced by a pane of glass... Don't click if you can't handle gore.

Hmm yes and no. I don't get a sense of crazy leading edge prat like I do with something like the SA5000 because they lack aggressive treble, but at the same time they have crazy holographic soundstages which I know has something to do with their transient response.

The 8A also has quite an expansive sound stage (I wish they had a tad more depth but its not bad) while still maintaining fast prat. But I still think other BAs are still faster overall. But they were purposely tuned that way to sound more so euphoric/musical.

Good news I guess. Mixtape #1 Repetition is done, or closest to being done without any sense of arrangement, just how members here posted in chronological order.

And again, as a non-entry I present another glimpse of repetition:

Based on the song in the first 15 seconds, it spawned 20 (at least just in this small collection) of different genre of songs.

jgray if you don't tell me what this is, I will go cry in a corner.

Don't do it. It's a superb book, but not for spring break.

Yay fellow Flat-4 maniacs :D 

 

Although I've spent the last few days A/Bing the F-4 and the Heaven VI. I just find myself spending more time with the F-4. What a special headphone. The sense of projected space, can at times, be unbelievable on these things; it's incredibly addicting and immersive. 

 

My entire town has been completely snowed in and there's been no word from Wal Mart of my copy of BS Infinite. So much for the joys of a gift card. Think I'm gonna have to make the trek to my 24/7 Wal Mart and pick it up at midnight, and then return the copy I ordered when it arrives like a week later :l

lol you sound like me with customer service just hating you at the end  :P. Well I did offer to help the FedEx guy carry the behemoth today. Hopefully the new machine won't be plagued with so many issues this time.... rolleyes.gif

 

Regarding the Flat4. I know what you mean by how shocking certain tracks can be with the perceived space. Like it goes on for miles... Listening to Antillas Damaged (Main Mix) is just phenomenal... It's like shes singing to you in a stadium... Speaking of the devil I just bought a 3 year warranty from square trade for these babies. I'd like to keep them for as long as possible :).

Definitely. They just seem to extend far beyond the limits of most phones I've listened to. Listening to live stadium recordings is awesome, but they just seem to lend a generous spatial representation to everything I toss their way. I think for me, the best thing is that I'm finding myself listening to music I haven't heard in years, and even some recordings that I remembered being dull or lackluster with previous sets of phones... the F-4 just breathes new life and energy into them. you can't put a price on that sort of thing 

 

lol, that gif is the best thing I've seen since http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/the-ass-was-fat-arthur-sees-a-fat-ass NSFL :l

I've been taking a stroll down memory lane. Was recently watching "Spellbinders". I loved that show as a kid as well as "Ocean Girl".
