    Comfortable cans for big heads?

    Second the Beyers. As said, the 770 is the closed-back, but they are ridiculously comfortable. I have DT990 (semi-open, V-shape) and T1 and I'm pretty sure I'm at my endgame.

    Earbuds Round-Up

    Still eagerly awaiting my ST-10s! I did nab a JDS Atom amp while I was at it, so I've been playing with that as much as I can. The problem is that my headphones are Beyerdynamic 600 Ohm (T1, DT990) that are normally driven by my modded Bottlehead Crack. It would be incredibly unfair to make a...

    Earbuds Round-Up

    Thanks! Pulled the trigger on the ST-10s, gonna wait for 11.11 to nab the Mojito and (maybe/probably) the Liebs. I do want them all, if only to review/compare.

    Earbuds Round-Up

    LOL Truly interested! The ST-10's were on my list, but a little further down since no one was talking about them. I'll have to give them a shot! I was hoping to not spend more than $200, but maybe that's the price of admission for the signature I like. I'll have to dig more to choose between...

    Earbuds Round-Up

    Aloha! Looking to shift to earbuds vice IEMs for listening at work (too much isolation and a PITA to take in/out when one of my minions needs me). I prefer a refined V-shaped presentation, so I have Beyerdynamic T1 (favorite, endgame), DT990/600 (close second but I deploy with it), DT1350, Shure...

    [Reviewers Wanted] World Tour for Cayin i5 - Android based AK4490 DAP with WiFi, Dropbox and Google Play

    I still owe everyone a review of the i5, but I'm clobbered with finals and thesis. I'll get one up this weekend. Thanks for understanding! The i5 is fantastic, btw. Loved listening to it!

    Agreed, the Ghost run is a pain in the ass. I think I honestly spend more time looking at a reload screen than I do playing the game. I'm committed, though, so I'll finish the run, but my next playthrough will probably be a low-chaos pacifist run (don't care about ghost but won't kill anyone) or...

    The original Deus Ex is what got me back into gaming after a long hiatus. The story was better than the movies that were coming out at the time (Matrix, etc). DX:HR is also a great game (especially if you install the DLC beforehand; The Missing Link is, IMHO, an important part of the overall...

    New Beyerdynamic T1 (2nd Generation)

    I run my Crack with a coke-bottle RCA 6AS7G or Tung Sol 5998 and either a GE 12AU7 or CBS 5814A.

    Yes. Read everything you find in Talos; it's a great story. I may have to give Portal 2 another run just because it's so darn funny.

    Definitely; the recorder was the bane of my existence for a few days. Most of the puzzles with the recorder are as much precision timing as getting the sequence right. There's also more than one correct sequence for a lot of those puzzles.

    Thanks for this! I'm definitely getting Obduction. I just finished The Talos Principle which is a great puzzle game along the vein of Portal. Pretty easy, though.

    I'm probably about halfway through DXMD and I'm a little underwhelmed. Might be because every game from now on will be compared to Witcher 3, but I find myself wishing there was more global conspiracy (it teases with cameos of characters from the original DX) and less police work. I admit I...
