BTW, know you're a rabid Rhodia guy. Got my Dotpad and my Webbie. Will keep the former but the latter....it's nice Clairefontaine but I might have to stick with my old Habanas. Eventually I will run out and will have to replenish with the non-90g ivory, ick. No matter how beautiful the yellow-green cover is....

 

I know there's a lime-green Webbie out there. Ever get one of those?

 

I've yet to go Webbie. R-pads and iPads only, well to-date anyway. Still looking to try my first Dotpad, I think February would be a good time as any. My first Rhodia addiction sprang from their graph notepads - notes, letters, sketches.... did not matter, I had to have them squares! 

 

Years on, I'm okay with a little variety, as long as I have my graph notepads :wink: too. I'm not sure I wanna be cafeside with a Lime Green Webbie. I'll do a quick search to gauge my reax...

Looked like it was laughing on the floor. Much like wink's picture

 

Stinky tofu? But she doesn't eat any to begin with :p

I've got to get the pic of that sperm whale off the recent images before I puke.

Something soothing and peaceful...

I took a look around here (Toronto) after reading your price drop/discontinued info on these headphones and did indeed find those Sennheiser's at Best Buy Canada for $119.00 discounted from a retail of $299.
They've been selling truck loads of these phones during the clearance, I had to reserve a pair in store 65 km away.
While I do prefer open headphones, sometimes you have to get a closed portable set for noise control.

Got a chuckle from another forum user who describes the Amperior's:
"Very ugly looking... Looks like a 1980's NHL Helmet worn by Butch Goring"

Every time I see the HD25 or Amperiors, I expect to hear "di-dah-dah-di-di-dah"...

post #10881 of 11852

I like the looks of the HD25's. They look like no-nonsense understated industrial design aimed for professionals. They're great if you don't want attention. They also isolate a lot better than most headphones, which is something proffessionals want I guess.

 

I just wish they were a bit more to my preferences. Maybe the Amperiors are better in that regard, but their colors are a bit attention seeking.

 

Also, last year I saw maybe 3 or 4 Beats by Dre, but I've lost count on how many HD25's I've spotted. They seem immensely popular in Sweden. I've also seen a lot of M fiddys. I get a chuckle because I stare at their headphones, and they get a stupid smug grin on their face saying "yeah, I know sound quality". It's okay, I've been there myself, I was no better. But yeah, it's chuckle worthy. If they only knew what a wallet shrinking rabbit hole this hobby is ... that smug grin over their M fiddys and HD25's would probably be a little more neutral. Weirdly enough, Beats users never get the grin on their faces, they just mind their own business. Bose QC users are the worst though, they skip lines, wear suits, reads their newspapers as if people next to them or in front of them don't exist, and just are arrogant ******** in general. They own the world. Bose Knows.

 

I think I'll try out my new E18 with the HD25's as opposed to the X10's on my way to work today.

I don't know wearing headphones in general is quite noticeable IMO. Wearing IEMs is much more discrete.

post #10883 of 11852

It's more discrete yeah, but wearing headphones has become pretty normal over here, so it's not really all that noticeable anymore. Not when there's at least 20 more people wearing them in your subway cart. 10 years ago it would've been sticking out. Today? No, not so much anymore.

How many of those headhpones are beats? ;)... I think here it would be much more noticeable to be wearing headphones than IEMs. Then again most here wear ibuds....

Up here in GTA Toronto, I see lots of Beats Headphones, often used as an accessory to compliment clothing outfit colors.
Certain music genres have evolved into fashion lines and it would seem the Beats headphones have become a part of that.
FUBU, Ecko, Phat Farm, Kangol duds come to mind...

As said, there really aren't a lot of Beats over here. Most headphones I see are actually Urbanears and iBuds/earpods, but out of head-fi recommends/hates I see a lot more HD25's and M fiddys than Beats.

Maybe classical is the one music genre that is spared from being knit together with fashion, but for the most part music has always gone hand in hand with fashion and styles of clothes.

Did we decide on a theme for February?

Not officially. There were quite a few suggestions....I think there were more for Frozen/Frosty/Freezing February than anything else, but I don't believe anyone actually counted them up.

post #10889 of 11852
I sort of started early, but the Abominable Snowman is kinda jovial too, so he still fits. smily_headphones1.gif
