How does your personal shootout look with your line-up and genres?
Looking at your signature, how tough are your choices come session time?
Hey guys, I haven't had the chance to respond to everything. I'm still here and I do have more to add which I have been working on for the longest time.
I had a run of many unexpected events in my life, some health, some passings of relatives, and some monetary, but its a very very troubling year and it's deeply effected my ability to devote time to the thread as I had planned to.
I literally haven't listened to headphones in 2 months because of what has happened. I am OK, and all will work out but I haven't been able to be as attentive as I would have liked. I am sorry for that :(
But I am not gone. And this thread will continue, but it will take time for me to get back where I was.
On a side note just to comment on something, I did gain about 60 lbs while doing this thread because my lifestyle changed. And then when this thread was completed (or the core of it) I hit the gym and became active again. I don't suggest anyone ever become a stationary headphone listener the way I was. I wish I could have documented the 2 years I worked on the thread. It actually would have made a fun before-after (but backwards)
I just started visiting Head-Fi, but already I read this thread almost daily, just because it's so informative and, in all honesty, incredibly fun to read through your write-ups about each of these great headphones. It probably will be a long time before I can afford to (or even want to) buy most of the headphones described in this (although I am considering springing for maybe an HE-400 or HD 600/650 sometime in 2014), but it's great to have this thread here as a reference. So I hope you know that your incredible efforts at least paid off a little bit. I know there are tons of others like me who enjoy this thread greatly. I'm always sharing it with other people.
Agreed with the others who say that taking care of yourself comes first! I wish you the best in 2014. I need to spend the year focusing on myself a lot, too. 2013 wasn't the greatest year for myself either (but not the worst!).
I will definitely always use this thread as a reference when it comes to headphones. Best thread I've yet seen on this site!
It's not very tough, it depends to the circumstance, my mood and music genres.
I just want to join in and thank you once again for all of your hard work on this peerless thread. Of all the forums I have frequented during the past 15 years, this thread is my all-time favorite. It is truly sublime.
May you have a better 2014, my friend.
With highest esteem,
look like you are writing a poem
doesn't rhythm... pretty lamee poem or some silly new-age free verse poetry.
that is def just word wrap in action!
whats wrong with new-age?
oh, what is wrong with new-age poetry?
asks thee, my gentlelady.
no scheme or verse.
Lacking constraints to channel that creative cadence,
craven chatter consumes the canvas!
When all rules and structure defining a poem evaporate...
the elegance of the caged craftsmanship,
chained down by strict forms but unbounded in beauty,
vanishes into the dark night sky...
the brilliant spark of artistic imagination tragically loses its glow when unbottled.
In a world where anything can count as poetry,
thee will find, my gentlelady,
is really a world without any poetry at all.
#old-school poetry REPRESENT!!!!
