About Me:

Sometimes I'm on Head-Fi. Often times I'm not. At all times, music comes first.

What I do for a living:

Something top secret, involving paperclips, out of date Marmite, pretty ponies, and the letter Q.

Audio-Related Tweaks

Both my headphones are calibrated to my hearing curve using PiccoloNamek's EQ guide. My S6 is also EQ'ed, and it's a shocking transformation! Not quite neutral, but DAMN!

Also, I've affixed felt over the drivers of my SRH440 to make them more comfy. It works!

Music Preferences

Classical (all periods)
Rock (classic, prog)
The odd song from other genres
