This is an expensive gaming device used to play old copyright games that most people think is outdated, and are not the niche they are trying to reach. Why is this still around here?
I'm 19. I'm in college.
I'm not trolling. All of this information is real, I've heavily researched this product. Everything I have said about it has been verified with many users of the device. I'm sharing my findings with fellow head-fi'ers because I thought it was pretty neat that this gaming device has great audio. I'm pretty sure everyone here would agree that if someone bought an expensive headphone without researching it first, then they'd be asking for trouble.
I'm going to have it this Christmas, and hopefully I can confirm what my research is telling me.
I guessed the specs of the Pandora 2 based on what I'd like to see from the unit, because I feel that the parts I chose, while not TOTL, would make a great handheld that wouldn't be 3x the cost of most consoles yet would still have plenty of power. I've personally put my suggestions to the audio designer, Michael Weston, to improve the audio for the Pandora 2 as well.
Who says my two biggest hobbies can't cross? I've wanted the Pandora for games for a very long time, and now I ALSO want it for audio because apparently an audiophile was on the dev team and put really expensive parts in it. And, when you think about it, have you ever tried plugging your old consoles into your audio equipment, and listening to them through headphones? They don't sound very good because DACs from that time were very bad. Even my N64 was absolutely terrible when I tried it; I was trying to rip a game's OST to FLAC.
Using emulators, you aren't restricted by whatever crappy parts the company happened to put in their consoles back then. This kinda makes this unit an audiophile portable gaming device, which is pretty damn cool if you ask me.
