    SR60i or MS1?

    You've pretty much sucked dry everything you could ask.  Spend more time at the shop listening to all the headphones you can and then make your decision.  The "worth" of an upgrade is purely how you're going to feel about it.  Just listen to them.  All the yes-men in the world won't sway what...

    Looking for great headphones for less than 50 dollars.

    The Panasonic HXT7 or whatever retro phones are more style than substance.  The sound was really hollow to me.  Bought them a couple years ago, tried them in the parking lot, and then instantly returned them; i wasn't a fan.  My suggestion would be the Koss Portapros, 30 bucks or less and comes...

    Petition: I would like the old site back (or other choice)

I had it on tap at a bar and it was my favorite beer around, but man was this a disappointment. Tasted thin, watery and grossly carbonated. The head looked completely different as well. What a...

    Polish president killed in plane crash

    best comment i read "No need to invoke conspiracy. When they are carrying VIPs, military pilots feel pressure to get to their intended destination on time. They call it the "VIP syndrome". Ironically, they take chances they would not take with ordinary passengers on a normal flight. When the...

    Is it possible to be in love with someone you barely know?

    You're infatuated, but you don't know what love is. And if you really "loved" her then you wouldn't have trouble just telling her you like her. You're hiding your feelings from her, and you think you can love someone by hiding from her? or hell you might be starcrossed lovers who knows? but...
