About Me:

<Currently lurking Head-Fi>

Interests (Hobbies, favorite activities, etc.):

Reading headphone reviews. Listening to music. アニメ。

Full time student.

I prefer a neutral sound signature. Clarity, balance, neutrality, technical performance and detail are of utmost importance.

Nothing wrong with a touch of EQ for those bassy days.

Audio-Related Tweaks

Reading biased, overhyped headphone reviews and then spending lots of money on the aforementioned headphones./sarcasm

Cleaning your ears. Earwax buildup inhibits the transmission of high frequency sounds. No jokes.

Music Preferences

Mostly Rock, rock/pop, alternative rock, J-rock, J-rock/pop, prog rock but not pop/mainstream stuff in general. A little bit of DnB, Electronic, Indie, Punk Rock, Synthpop... and many others, with the exception of rap (do you even call that singing?), dubstep and other ear bleeding genres.

Orchestral OST's and instrumentals from various Anime/VNs/Games. Classical. Contemporary.

Well recorded albums only.

Interests (non-headphone)

Cycling, Biology, Japanese Language

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

MacBook Pro Retina 13" (Haswell, Late 2013) w. Win8 BootCamp

Trek 7300 Bike

~Fountain Pens~
Pilot Decimo
Pilot Custom 74
