Head-Fi's third most long-winded poster., from Chestertucky, MI


I just realized that Jeff Lynne wrote songs titled both "Starlight" and "Twilight". And ELO singles sometimes came on purple vinyl. HE KNEW! May 22, 2017

    I've placed felt circles over the drivers of my SRH440 to tame the highs and make the headphone comfortable, as well as stuck a bit of foam onto the headband with adhesive velcro strips.
    Music Preferences:
    Pretty eclectic really
    Sometimes I'm on Head-Fi. Often times I'm not. At all times, music comes first.


    The beginning and/or vain audiophile marvels at what he can hear. The experienced audiophile knows what he cannot hear.
