    A friend of mine and I use it to distribute our jam recordings... it's a great service!

    Sharing Itunes Library?

    Yeah, realized that when I recently tried copying some purchased track to my Android phone - surprised me that it worked, and worked easily. :)

    What age did you grow out of metal?

    What age did you grow out of *insert your favourite genre here* because obviously if you're X years old you're too old to enjoy it. /sarcasm, if you couldn't tell from the fact my avatar is Opeth's logo.   EDIT: I'm 30, by the way. Love Opeth, Tool, Devil Driver, Type O Negative...

    Sharing Itunes Library?

    Depends where the files are from. If you ripped them from CDs, there shouldn't be any problems, but if you bought them from the iTunes store they're likely tied to your account. (I know apple made a big deal about removing DRM a while ago but I didn't keep track on weather they went through with...

    K-pop Thread

    Quote: CDs are hard to find unless you import. ITunes has 256Kbps files, and for the price (compared to importing!) it isn't bad. Kpop ain't exactly audiophile material, most of the time so I find no need to be that picky, personally.

    K-pop Thread

    Glad to find this thread. :) Yes I'm a bit of a metalhead. Yes, I love SNSD. :D Those two aren't mutually exclusive. :)   So yeah, I stumbled across SNSD about two years ago, and nearly fell in love with Sooyoung, *swoon* and Hyoyeon, for their awesome dancing skills, and Taeyeon for her...

    What's your view on custom headphone cables?

    I haven't had any problems with my HD650's stock cables. They're long enough, flexible enough, and sound good. If a cable were to expand on the first two, or even the third (balanced driving sounds fun to try, if I had money to burn) then hey I'd consider it.

    monoprice v augioquest and other "audiophile usb cables

    Quote: Haven't posted for a while, but I have to agree with this poster. Even the most ardent "cable believer" would agree that cables are several steps own in importance in a system. I beleive it usually goes recording>headphones>source (DAC in your case)>amp>and finally interconnects...

    Dakiom F273 Series Feedback Stabilizer for Headphones

    So... what do they do?   EDIT: I actually took the time to read the site... does anyone have any input on the technical merits of this?

    The Official Grado 325i Owners Club.

    Apple iPad is Offical

    I love the concept, and think it will go far. I, however, will certainly not buy one. Why? No pressure-sensitive stylus and no multitasking. I want to draw on this thing and I certainly don't want to use my finger. Battery life is nice, and it will certainly appeal to those computer-phobic in...

    Headroom MicroAmps: Driving Sennheiser 650, Denon 5000

    9-10 o-clock on high?!? My Senns rarely get above 9-10 o-clock on MEDIUM before my ears start to complain and I get fuzzy hearing after. They are very clear at lower/medium volumes on the Micro.

    Effect of Airhead.

    Versus straight from an iPod? Not much, just increased volume, mostly. I'm comparing Grado SR80s, which are very similar to the MS-1s. Versus macbook audio out, you'd be better off with the USB of the Bithead.

    correct way of turning headroom amps on and off

    I turn the volume down as well.

    Headroom has skullcandy headphones... and is singing their praises?

    I recently compared the SK Titan to JVC Air Cushions. Comfort aside, the Skullcandies actually sounded better and don't cost that much more here in stores. I don't blame Headroom at all for carrying them. They're no high-end Shures but for inexpensive subway/bus phones they work well as I sure...

    Cheap IEMS

    JVC Air Cushions are another one to consider. They're like the newer, better cousin to the mashmallows. I also like the tips.

    SR-60 Response Graph

    The SR60s are well known as one of the best price/performance cans out therem. It's still worth it to upgrade up the line, though. How far you go depends on your tastes/wallet density.

    5th grade math problem.

    14. You didn't state that the knapsacks are also on the bus. Or, zero. Busses have wheels. Or zero, they were all double/quadruple amputees etc. I can do this all day. Teachers hated me.

    Have Denon changed the inside of the D2000 cup?

    That would be hilarious. Also, might make me want to pick one up.

    In love with my Grados!

    You don't need to go top of the line to get a lot from Grados - many stop upgrading with the 225s or 325is, and are quite happy. And yes, I love my 325i goldies.
