He really should get to work once in a while instead of having to pile it on me.

 


DX50 - pretty darned hyped. Pretty darned hyped. I won't mention much since there's a thread out there that addresses this already....

AK120 - goodbye wallet, goodbye. 

post #95 of 1869

pretentious name & pretentious name 120?

 

You really interested in that? Not that that is a bad thing necessarily. Go for the antihype Ihifi 760, that's near hype-negative-implosion. Lots of impressions get sent through pms it's so antihype.

 

SF get rolling on reading. Lots of people counting on you.

Read SF READ


  anyhow even SF told me to calm down when i posted this hype reaction gif a while ago.  Use it wisely.

Not at all interested. Go see the DAP complaint thread.

 

That looks like prudy gear - with stuff like that I'd be more forgiving about whether it works or not since it's not really intended to "work" in that sense.

Sony PCM-D100 as well - the good stuff gets little hype.

 

Definitely a dead horse - trolls reading.

Whatcha talkin' 'bout meng, iTroll hence i am doing my duty for this community. :p

 

Oh that reminds me ehhh where is that 200 vid drop huh??? Righttttt. :rolleyes:

 

DX50/ X3 both are meh cuz ugly design and lackluster battery life for such thick bricks. The Fiio E17 looks soooo much more BOSS/ sexy compared to those two esp. the smaller form factor.

 

Those AK120s is ehhh, this guy said it best: http://www.head-fi.org/t/586909/the-discovery-thread-new-brainwavz-delta-r3-dual-dynamic-pg948-onkyo-phones-pg-904-kef-m200-pg835-philips-fidelio-s2-pg-724/14895#post_9849271

Did you buy the entire thing fool??? You gotta be Asian and buy the whole fruit and open it up. Only then will you realize it's splendid glory!!! 

 

Ehhh you got let it thoroughly defrost in order to eat it meng, don't be a noob. Durian shake does it justice as well, you get the taste/ smell of the durian without that silky texture if that is your cup of tea.

Too much work for a less-than-subpar fruit.

 

BACK TO THE HYPE.

 

SR-007 - before the HD800, all that cruft - this was the go-to in terms of accessible summit-fi. You want that status, you get these, the R10, the Qualia, or get lost. And I mention accessible in that these were the only ones that they had still been actively producing. Not to say that there was much immature enthusiasm for them at the time...but they are called Stax Mafia for a reason.

There's a new kid on the block.

Really? I left after nomax showed up, not at all surprised that the tread was closed. Basically people arguing over a product that no one has been able to audition yet. Now that is HYPE

I'm going to drop in on that one.

 

 Stax hype.  Pretty soon I'll be fullsize Stax free which suits me more than fine.

 Sure a crazy type airyness and speed, but I find you get less in the way of tactile slam.  It'll be good to be rid of the last fullsized one. THE thing that has stopped me so far, is that I'm such an idiot I am buying into all the hype on the things and that was making me second-guess myself and my preferences.   They are great, just somebody else's great, not MY great.

Technically they are incredible though.

" But I'm supposed to like these "  

That's why it's called PERSONAL PREFERENCE * hitting myself and signing up to a flagellist weekend retreat *

 

I know that's what it was the whole time. There's a reason they sat there looking pretty unused compared to other things.

Rant over.

 

good point on the huge surge of Top Models now.

Seven pages and no one have mentioned Dsnuts? Have you all lost your minds? The guy is the hype master of all hype experts.

Maybe it's the way he writes English in total hyperbole and flamboyant enthusiasm but every thread he creates, or to be fair most of them, have created a massive amount of hype.

I remember a quote saying something along the line of him single handedly keeping the economy of the headphone industry going, and I can see that point. No one else on head-fi is as directly responsible for people buying new gear as him. Not even close.
