    Schiit Happened: The Story of the World's Most Improbable Start-Up

    This. As any sort of engineer, you never stop learning. And never underestimate the immense value of personal experience. Many things that seem like a good idea now (and that do work) aren't looking so clever when you come back to them a year later.

    Schiit Happened: The Story of the World's Most Improbable Start-Up

    I'm a software engineer, so I deal with bits and bytes instead of sheet metal and circuit boards, but all of this rings true to me.

    MrSpeakers Alpha Dog Revealed! - The World's First Production 3D-Printed Headphones

    I ordered on the 29th and already got it a week later, which was highly unexpected. Usually stuff I order from the US takes at best 3 weeks door-to-door, including customs. So that was a really nice surprise. Don't know what happened to customs, though. So far I haven't gotten any notification...

    Bowers & Wilkins P7 - over the ear headphones

      I'll have a listen with the X3 once the local Apple reseller has the P7. When I went there last week and they didn't even know there was a new B&W headphone, but promised they'd get some shortly. If they let me, I'll compare them there with my Audio Technica ATH-ESW9 and maybe the P5 (to...

    Epiphany Acoustics E-DAC / JDSlabs ODAC / Head 'n' Hifi ODAC / ~ discussion

    I recently got an ODAC/O2 combination from Head'n'Hifi with bamboo faceplates. Very nice-looking (and sounding, of course). I couldn't test with my K701s, though, as I only have one of those short adapters and don't want to risk ripping the connector from the board ;)

    Quote: I'm one of them   At the moment I'm using a Pro-Ject DAC Box USB. I don't really have anything to compare it to, though.

    Audio Technica ATH- ES 10 Impressions Thread

    I might try again with ESW9 pads. Once I get those.... For now they're still stuck in customs.   [EDIT] It probably also depends on how tightly they fit on your head. Mine... it's a wonder they don't fall off. Apparently I have a strangely formed head. Not really small, just kind of...

    Audio Technica ATH- ES 10 Impressions Thread

    I got the ES10 two weeks ago and I'm liking them a lot so far. Sadly they haven't passed the public transport noise test, but I'm considering keeping them for at home.

    Reversible AKG K701 bass mod

    I just tried this and it works very well. I find it adds just enough to make listening to Metal (for instance) more comfortable, but thankfully doesn't change the overall sound in any other way (as far as I can tell). Not that not having this mod stopped me from from listening to Metal the last...

    Quote:   That's great news. A week ago I spent a couple of hours retagging all my FLACs to include covers. Good to know all that work won't go to waste :-)
