    Skyrim DLC: Dawnguard or Vampires?

    I was all politically-correct Dawnguard after I saw a couple of vampires attack Winterhold. I got on Shadowmere, rode to Fort Dawnguard, walked in... ok so no furniture yet, I guess IKEA only exists in the Imperial City. Well start the quest, get a crossbow, kill some vampires... As soon as I...

    Sony NWZ-A845 16GB w/ box, original material and receipt

    This player was bought on 16 Sep 2010 so it's a little under 2 years ago. It's in good condition and it comes with everything that was included: IEMs with noise cancelling (I think it's a single BA because of the shape, but I can't be sure) Sony USB cable 3-5mm-to-line-in so you can listen...

    [Sold] Shure SRH750 w/ box and accessories

    These were bought around Jan 2011, they were my first purchase after discovering Head-Fi. They were used indoors, and only went outside once. I've treated them well and they sound the same as when I got them (minus some hypothetical burn-in). I'm letting them go to help finance an amplifier or a...

    Excessive loud music in clubs

    I checked and the last thread about this was almost 3 years ago, so I decided to create a new one.   It's ridiculous how loud clubs are. I went to one yesterday which is rare for me, and it was painful just to be inside, even in the back. You have to scream at your friend's ears just to have...

    Can you demagnetize a headphone driver? Koss Portapro problem

    Ok normally I don't act like a cheerleader in a low-budget horror movie, but that's how concerned I am. I have owned a pair of Koss PortaPro for some time now, they were the first pair of headphones I put some thought into buying. They were the first thing I ever tried in terms of DIY (recabled...

    Complicated Catalogs

    We've all been to some of our favorite companies' websites, right? Well, when I started on Head-Fi the first thing I wanted to pick up was a Koss Porta Pro, so as you can imagine I visited their website often. And while I went to the Product Select button, I felt like I was in the Matrix. The...

    Sennheiser HD25-1-II vs AKG K518 review

    So today, after watching Jude's review, I went out and finally tried the Sennheiser HD-25-1 II at one of the only 2 Apple stores in Lisbon. And although I couldn't use my regular DAP as a test (Sony NWZ-A845), I used the store's iPod Nano Touch or whatever that thing was. It looked like a...

    Using an amp with a DAP - will it change the Freq. response?

    Now now, bros, don't flame me please. I know this has probably been answered, but Ireally couldn't search it this time - and I am an avid user of our forum's search funtion.   My story is this: I own a Sony NWZ-A845 player, and it's quite nice. Soundstage isn't that great, instrument...

    Basic soldering - what went wrong?

    So I just tried my first recable job. It went terrible, and I wanted to learn from that. So I'll quickly post my mistakes and some questions I have about them.   1 - I did'nt clean my iron often, and it was many times greyish instead of silver when I used it. Does this affect the quality of...

    Cable braiding 101 please?

    Before you enrage, let me say I did use the search funtion.   Now, the thing is: I intend on doing a recable on my Portapros. Importing mogami cable is hard for me and I might just use the standard Hi-Fi 0,75mm from this DYI store. The guy said it's a nice cable for audio, but Idk what to...

    ASUS Eeepc 1005PX sound quality?

    I am currently close to buying a laptop. It's mostly for school work, but I would also use it for listening to music while I type in college. My cans are decent, and I feel I'm more limited by my soundcard than by headphones.   So does anyone have any experience with this? Is the soundcard...

    Shure SRH750 with isolation?

    So, as I posted before, I was looking for some cans around 100$, and I came to an arrangement where the SRH750 would be my ideal choice. Problem is, I ride a bus to college, and that sucks when it comes to noise.   So far I never noticed because I use the stock IEMs that came with my Sony...

    Avalanche City - Acoustic band, really enjoyable, and the album is free to download

    So here I am at 4am, losing my sleep, and why? To be the first (?) to post here about Avalanche City. It's this really recent band, they only have 1 album so far. In their own words, "Avalanche City is about sunshine, ice creams and accordions, adventures and road trips and sailing away to...

    Using EAC+LAME with Windows Media Player 11

    Now, you must all be wondering why on earth am I using the best CD-ripper with the best lossy encoder available, and then I'm using such a low player like WMP. Well the thing is I own a Sony A845, and since Sony dumped my long-loved Sonicstage, which was amazing at organizing libraries, I now...
