A Genius Work of Staggering Heartbreak

Posted

Pros: Will change your Life forever

Cons: Will change your life forever

Growing up poor in Bucharpest, life often felt like this:       Then I got a wife and a job.  Now I am like this:       So now I was flush with cash and had nothing to spend it on.  Then I heard about the LCD-2.  The more I kept reading, the more excited I got.     And then I ordered.  And waited:     Then one day, a package came:     And I was like:   Then it was time for the unboxing:     Then came the listening. At first I was like:     Probably because of burn in or something.  But after 30 seconds the beat dropped, and it was like:   It was...

The Holy Grail of Headphones

Posted

Pros: Glorious Sound, Understated Looks, Pugnacious Build Quality, Aura of Apricity

Cons: We are unworthy, Routine Ephiphany Dulls its Brilliance, Low Price Biases Buyer

Everyone has "that" song.  The song that helped define their life, that they could easily divide their life in half without batting an eye - before the song and after the song.  The song itself might not even be particularly memorable - it could have just been playing during a life-altering moment and be inextricably linked to it in one's mind for eternity.  It could signify a coming of age or a midlife crisis.  A person could be doing anything - performing heart surgery or diffusing a bomb - and when that song comes on nothing else exists but the song and maybe an air guitar that spontaneously generated in their hands. This is something really unique to music.  ...

Schiit Magni Review   -please contact me for a one millimeter version of this review downloadable onto a microdot that can be smuggled and hidden from even the most prying eyes.   Intro:   As a free-thinking maverick who bucks trends and rides bulls, I have really never been one of the multitude of Schiit fans.  Ever since the first Asgard was hyped to high heaven, I've been averse to their products and never impressed with their offerings.  That said, I decided to try their newer product, their cheapest to date, to see if its stripped-down bare-bones nature would somehow change my roguishly independent mind.   About Schiit: Schiit Audio may be...

Ribald urchin of Lurid antipathy

Pros: There is nothing this headphone is not good at. If you perceive it as inadequate, it is your own inadequacies you are sensing.

Cons: Shurely you must be joking.

I have spent many years as an audiophile and even more as an amateur human being.  I have owned, auditioned, or sri-racha'd pretty much every headphone that ever was, is, or will be.  Forget the HD800.  Forget the LCD-2.  Forget Grado and Beyer and AKG.  Now that you've forgotten all the good headphones you've heard, doesn't that make this headphone the best of what's left in your decimated memory?   As a single male paralyzingly afraid of commitment, I can empathize with Shure and their decision to include a detachable cable.  These headphones are comfortable, not so much to wear, but personality-wise.  I feel very at-ease with them...
