post #166 of 215

I think it's time for me to take a break as well..  Maybe the HE-600 or HE-7s will be out thenbiggrin.gif  Oh wait.  that only means I'll have to get a new speaker rig all over again.  Will this ever stop?

I really gotta take a long break from Head Fi!

I'm getting sick of the same questions, the same useless debates from the same misinformed folks.
Obviously I am burned out!redface.gif

^ It's weird. I posted in this thread quite a bit months ago, and yet I'm still here. Apart from the "You know you're an audiophile when..." thread, which is bizarrely in the full-size headphone section, I've been spending my time almost exclusively in the lounge. I think that's how I've managed to avoid everything you've mentioned above. I hear you, though. That stuff is part of the reason I periodically take breaks from this place.

Taking a break for a week or a month is definitely a good idea. Taking a break from the internet totally for a week is also a good idea.

Personally I am over gear (Headphones), and found my true passion, which is photography so when I venture here it is about photos or read up about general stuff and not headphones related.

 

I much prefer listening to music from speakers anyway!

I love head fi but eventually when you stick with it, you get the pattern and get sick of it. In the mean time, the shopping is great if you are still searching for your dream amp and upgrade from those bad ear buds. I love head-fi but it's like eating the same pizza if you continue with it.

 

Lol.

That means the answers are wrong.

Great for the creators.  Nah, with computer software and CNC cutters and all that there is massive room for creation, it's only that creativity is slowing down these days for reasons not politically correct to discuss.

You know, something like a database. All headphones, DACs, Amps sorted according to their properties, like input/output options, power source (portable/non portable), power output, Specs, Sound signature.

As you keep selecting criteria, your choice  keeps narrowing down until you've found the component you want.

 

It'll be much easier for a lot of users, both new and experienced. You could easily narrow down to a selection in a few clicks. No need to keep asking the same question again. 

 

That's a neat idea, let's make a simple website tailored around it?

I think that's why some people here are addicted, since they buy 1000 headphones not realising what they're really looking for are speakers. =]

Sounds like what they're looking for is the K1000. Or a Smyth Realiser.

I haven't heard the Smyth realiser, but I realise it's binaural, which is an illusion.  Speakers are real, and cover your entire body / room in sound, which is a different experience any way you look at it.

post #176 of 215

Very true. All the Realiser can do is simulate the presentation of speakers, not the tactile, visceral aspect. I'd still love to experience one, though.

Ditto, but two kids sleeping in the other room make this impractical for me at this time of evening. I did just get a pair of Adam ARTist 3s for my room to use during the day, however.

PUKE

Musta been all that Head-Fi I've digested and regurgitated   biggrin.gif

 

 

/ feels much better, now ;')

post #180 of 215

I think that the green PUKE has a much more well rounded soundstage than the brown PUKE. I also find that after exactly 3,269 hours of burn-in that the green PUKE really opens up. It's a stunning transformation, and of course it only happens if you're using 99.999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999% pure copper cabling. Silver doesn't work. It makes the sound too shiny, and nobody wants a shiny green PUKE.

 

So, overall, I think the green PUKE is great, but I still recommend the M50.
