Music Preferences

General music listener. If I have to choose, the music the likes of Muse, 30 Seconds to Mars, the Killers, Keane, Arctic Monkeys, Bloc Party, Coldplay, anime songs and soundtracks. Like vocals and how the instruments play with each other. Dislike very bassy music. Also have almost no idea of music genre except the general ones. Love music from anime too much, especially the OSTs from Sayanora Zetsubou Sensei series. Don't ask why.

I guess now I can expand to "vocal junkie, prefers slightly forward midrange with neutral bass and highs". I had a better, crazier description but I forgot. :\

Now includes Touhou music. This is awesomeness incarnate, and anyone disputing it is wrong.

NOW TRYING OUT NEW GENRE.

Interests (non-headphone)

Anime/manga, consumer tech in general, reading in general (books, manga, forum threads, etc.), new music outside of my comfort zone, MF's headphone journey.

Gear-Fi (Favorite Non-Audio Gear & Gadgets)

Nokia N8, Nokia 808 PureView, Google Nexus 7, Asus Zenfone 5
