Non-audiophile reactions to high-end headphones Part II - Page 300

She also has a the o2 even if she invested in it quite a bit later. Somehow I forgot to mention that but those low bitrate files will probably remain until the end of time. Glad you enjoyed it!

Oh, for heaven's sake!  All I did was make a small remark that spread out of my control.  Luckily, we're all respectful people here who decided to bring it back down.

   Oops, sorry. I was actually referring to all the other times the same thing has happened in this thread. Not specifically what you did in one instance. Sometimes we just don't have any stories to tell anyway :confused_face:..like me, right now.

 

Actually, I do have kind of a weird story o.O. My dad wanted to buy some IEMs, and sampling my sister's Klipsch S4, said that it didn't sound "right." I don't know whether he was referring to it sounding tinny, or if he didn't get a good fit.

So he got a UE400 instead. But couple years later, he lost it. Guess what IEM he got to replace it. :ph34r: ...Yep, an S4. I was hoping he would get a RE0, but he just didn't want to pay more. He payed $35 for the S4, which isn't too bad, I guess.

You could probably convince her to replace the kb/s with kHz :D

Everything that was said in this thead after I commented on a couple things got deleted. Didn't think I was causing a problem or this thread was that serious. Kind of strange to me to see that happen.

Good one, did not see it coming, otherwise she could get the next level placebo going: "it sounds better when kb/s and Khz is synced!".
