On my in-law's ranch they had a big dumb Golden Retriever that got a little too up-close and personal with a skunk and got blasted. The poor dog couldn't stand the smell of himself and also couldn't get away from it. He was rolling around in the dirt and grass and jumped into a big horse water trough and just sat there in water up to his ears. No skunks were harmed in this comedy routine. biggrin.gif

First: you were nicer to the nOOb than I would have been. I got respect for you.

Second: Newegg.com has the blue Sennheiser Momentum on sale for $130. I ordered them,...I'll just wear shades whilst I wear them. The blue is blindingly bright. smily_headphones1.gif

EDIT: It's the AMPERIOR,...not the MOMENTUM!!! My bad!!! redface.gif

Wow, that must have ended quick. I just checked and they're back up to $229.95 (unless there's a promo code or something involved in the discount).

OOPS!!! I meant the Amperior, not the Momentum. SORRY!!! :p Still a great deal nonetheless,...and better than my HD25-1 II's grating highs. I'm going to sell 'em after I get the Amperior. :L3000:

 

The sale ends @midnight: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16826106684&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-na-_-na-_-na&cm_sp=&AID=10446076&PID=6147800&SID=1ve0e4ymxjzyc

Quick update. I got the Amperior's, and they sound more airy, more "open". The mids are quite nice, and my HD25-1 II's sound flat in comparison. These bring out more in my music so far, and now the HD25-1 II's seem boring. They definitely have more clarity,...and the bass is clean but not overbearing. Wonderful!!!  

 

PS: My wife threatened my life - but I'm willing to deal with the death threat. LOL!!! :L3000:

Excellent! I have only heard them very briefly - that part of the Senn line is so confusing, I've never really understood how all of those on-ears are supposed to fit together, or whether there is supposed to be some sort of pecking order. Add-in that the prices fluctuate so wildly, and you can just color me: confused_face_2.gif

These were so inexpensive from the original price because they're discontinued by Sennheiser. Some places are trying to clear out the remaining stock while others are starting to amp the pricing up. And yes, Sennheiser has a habit of having crazy pricing and ordering sometimes. But not as bad as some other companies.

So some troll is currently selling black magic on the forums.

Don't we usually just get fake Nikes and Peats by Dray ?

So - here's another reason why I should just give up on the Help forum...

The FOTM guys pop-in and post the latest super-value as their recommendation on every thread. Then I start thinking: "Hmm, because the questions are always the same, I also tend to recommend a fairly small set of headphones - maybe everyone else sees *me* as a fanboy too?" And that just makes me depressed.

On the other side of the same coin, you get the questions from guys asking you to compare a specific 'phone from Brand XXY to a different 'phone from Brand YYX - and I've never heard of either brand.

I'm not going to go try every headphone that comes out of an Asian or Baltic sweatshop - it seems like there's a new 'phone hitting the market almost every week. Even if a lot of them are just re-branded OEMs, I'm still probably going to stick to the more traditional brands I know. IEMs are the worst - everyone and their cousin seems able to throw a driver in a plastic or metal shell. Does the world really need 500 different IEMs between $10-$300?

I keep thinking that every day there is a new guy in Shenzhen that says "I think I'm going to create a new headphone. I heard those crazy kids on head-fi will buy anything!" rolleyes.gif
