    Lucky to be alive... Hope this helps someone.

    Hi all,   I just figured I would share a personal experience I had last week in the hopes that no one else ever has to go through this.   I had been taking lorazepam (as prescribed), a benzodiazepine for the past 5 years for panic attacks, and insomnia. The little white pills seemed...

    Anyone interested in the "Wii 2"?

    Hey All,   Just wondering what people think of the Wii 2.   I don't want to come across as a fan boy of any console, as embarrassingly enough I own pretty much every console released in the last 20 years (save a dreamcast).   That aside, does anyone actually care?   The Wii was a...

    But I was already doing what I wanted to do...

    No credit for this hilarious comic. How often does this happen to you? Too damned often over here.

    Head-Fi, or the Electronic Dark Ages?

    I like this place a lot.   I really do.   Lots of great people here, great advice, and fun stuff to read. Keeps me checking up on it just about every day.   We are all hobbyists here, some more into it than others. Some with more money than others, and some with more technical...

    Easiest Balanced DIY amp.

    Hello All,   Due to budgetary constraints, and general interest, I am looking to get into DIY.   I would very much like to have a 4ch B22 or a Dynamite. I have been wanting to get into fully balanced for some time, but the entry price is prohibitive.    My questions is this: Can...

    5 Star reviews bonanza

    So, I might not be the first to make a thread like this, but I did check. I apologize if I am not the first.   As much as I appreciate all the work that has gone into the site, and all the new features, I think the Head Gear part is just as bad as it is good.   It is great in the sense...

    Distortion from song vs. from driver

    Hey all, I recently had my soundcard go haywire (drivers crashed I think), and produce sound that is what I assume the bowls of hell sounds like. I was so shocked with the noise, I do not remember how loud it was. Initially I though that the sound was very loud, but I think it might have...

    Lets talk neutrality: Opinion Vs. Fact

    So I have done some quick searching here on head-fi about neutrality, or balanced sounding headphones. Seems like there are many people who are after headphones that sound like this, but a lot of people seem to suggest, at least in the past, Sennheiser HD 600, or AKG K702. After listening...

    A little clarification on balancing and reterminating headphones.

    So I was pretty set on getting a Meier Concerto, until I noticed the Audio-GD Phoenix. I was going to use the Concerto to get near balanced performance until I had enough money to get some headphones re-cabled and a serious source. BUT, the Phoenix offers a 4 pin XLR output, and even a kit...

    Okay, first things first: Equipment Used: Asus Xonar STX soundcard LittleDot MKV - Solid State Ultrasone Proline 750/ Sony MDR-XB700 Quick comments about usage on my iPod. Yes I do love my Ultrasone 750 very much. So I perhaps have a bias. Just putting that out there. Secondly, I am...

    Upgrade From LD MKV

    Hello Head-fiers! Ok so here is the deal: I have a LD MKV that I have enjoyed thoroughly for two years. However, I can't help but wonder what a better amp would sound like. I do no have any opportunity to audition an amp, so please spare me the tried and true "trust your ears". I am...

    Olive Oil injected RCA cable...

    Hello, I'm not really big with cables, but I noticed these on ebay, they were cheap and offered something different. Yes they are made in China, *GASP* but they are an interesting concept. My understanding of electronics is admittedly very limited, especially compared to people in this forum...
