    AKG K702 Vs. Sennheiser HD 598

    I bought the K702 due to its reputation as being light on bass, my Sennheiser HD555s had too much! The initial few months of use...they hardly got used, I could listen maybe for 15 minutes before my ears would hurt. Piercing highs and no bass to speak of!    However, after a year or so of...

    How can I feel something this intense? - A surreal feeling of infinite hope?

    I don't really think what you describe is that uncommon. After all, the concept of hope in the face of adversity is an oft-used theme in all sorts of artistic work.   For me, Armin van Buuren - Burned with Desire has this sort of happy/sad epicness (?) that you are talking about:

    Watches - another passion of ours, it your pics!

        Here is the Antea KS on a 6.25" wrist. The slim bezel and white dial really make the watch wear larger than it really is, but as you can see it looks fine here! I'm not a fan of the lugs, a bit spartan for my taste, but this watch is up there when it comes to timeless beauty.  ...

    New Tomb Raider/Lara Croft preview @ E3, featuring a very familiar IEM!!!!

    The narration was waaay over the top, it got annoying after the first 10 seconds! Now they need to make the in-game graphics look like that trailer and it should be quite spectacular.   wind016, Square Enix bought Eidos, the original owner of the TR franchise, so SE is now the title publisher.

    Do 320kbps mp3 files really sound better? Take the test!

    Listened to them about 3 times each, and I picked #2 :D. Listening again, the major difference I can tell, and would appreciate to have, is the 'spacing' around the vocals in #1, they are more clearly defined among the other instruments than in #2! They both sounded just great though, more than...

    Q&A (questions and answers) - Head-Fi TV, Episode 005

    Quote:   In the previous thread it was mentioned that Colorware will be willing to do this for individuals as well. I think the price is around $300, pretty normal for Colorware. Very cool but very pricey ;)

    Amelie - Jeunet

    I love this movie, utterly brilliant, with an equally brilliant soundtrack (Comtine D'un Autre Ete: L'apres midi  has one of the highest play counts in my itunes!)   Maybe I should get it on Bluray :D

    Sneaker-Fi (or Shoe-Fi)

    My summer shoes, Adidas Kundo:   These shoes are best worn in a hermetically sealed environment, very hard to clean, and they scuff very easily :D
