I actually was going to compliment you on your lack of fanboyness, and how you supported your opinions with facts. I'm not sure how other people couldn't see that you were being reasonable. Online anonymity maybe? How ironic.

(FYI, all, fanboyness involves blindly supporting a brand, not loving one consistently because of supporting reasons and experiences.)

 

I like the way you spelled that out.  In that case, I retract my statement above about being an admitted Apple fanboy!  I've loved the brand since I was

a kid w/ my own Apple IIe and have always had terrific experiences with their products - minus a couple of iPods that went batsh-- on me!
 
Yeah I agree: I thought Jude did an excellent job of supporting his opinions with facts and experiences (which are the most important).

Am I an Apple fanboy? Perhaps. My first real computer was an Apple //e. Don't you remember your first computer fondly? My first good headphone was the Sony MDR-V6, so that headphone has significance in my life. That is also why I have always listed the Sony MDR-V6 as the very first product in the Head-Fi Buying Guide, and why I'll do so for as long as Sony's making it.

 

 

Hi Jude:

 

Hah...my first computer was the Apple //c. I remember that one very fondly and have had an Apple product / computer in my home since then. Gotta say that I love my 2012 iMac, iPad 3, iPod Classic (160Gb), iPhone 5, and iPod Touch (64Gb) that I own now. Hey, wait, that must make me an Apple fanboy too?

I wouldn't consider myself an Apple fanboy. I like Macs as much as I like PCs. I sometimes prefer Macs for certain applications and PCs for others. But I've owned a first generation MacBook Air, several different iPod models, an iPhone 3GS, and an iPhone 4, and will be using iPhone for the foreseeable future.

It's a monolight (Profoto D1).  You can see another one on the far left of the picture.

chicolom is correct.

 

blueangel2323, it's a flash for photography. That one in the back is mostly used to light the background. There are two more just like it to either side of me (but those have soft boxes attached to them).

 

This is what it looks like up close:

 

 

And this is what the area looks like when I'm not standing in front of it:

 

 

 

(The above pile of headphones was for a photo I took that was used in an article in Lifehacker about noise-canceling headphones.)

Ah. Generally flashes not supposed to be in the photo though ;)

Oh man. Thank you Jude for giving us behind-the-scenes access into your studio. As someone who spends far too many hours staring at headphone photos, that Lifehacker shot is one of my absolute favorites. Nice to get a glimpse into its origins. We'd love to learn more if you're into it.

I think I am ready to get my first CIEM but I still cannot fathom the price but I am sure it is not easy to fit 3 quad drivers in such a size format. I for one was not even aware that there was a quad drivers out!

hey i just want your expert opinion on buying a head/ear phone

 

where i'm from,we don't have much variety in terms of headphones and most of the products are counterfeit.

 

My only option is to buy headphones from US and that is pretty expensive as 1 dollars equals 100 in our currency.

So a 100 dollar headphones is out of the question.I'm thinking of getting the JVC marsh mellow ones as i just need  headphones which are comfortable and give a overall complete and balanced sound and they should be durable as i won't be getting them again if they break down.

so are those okay?? 

what would you recommend under 20$ apart from these.

thanks:k701smile:
