    My dog ate my IEMs.

    I'm sorry to hear. I'm wrapping up the dangling slack in my headphone's cable right now. Why did you send an email to Future Sonics? I would be surprised if you actually get a response.

    Sony flexible OLED Walkman

    No, we need a bunch of companies to market and promote the MP3 format so everybody will forget about higher quality... oh wait. I know I won't be paying a premium for portability/coolness and expect good sound coming from it.

    Post your desktop!

    I've been meaning to shop the black parts with something cool (or add Vista gadgets for visuals), but I haven't got around to it, since I've just realized that my foobar window was usually on the screen when idling. I guess that could count as desktop edit: Maybe I can clone the girl from...

    High quality earbuds that rest on your ear?

    Yuin PK2s are excellent except that they have a slightly warped and unnature soundstage to them. An alternative is the B&O A8, a good all rounder with lean bass, which are ear clips with no canal insertion involved.

    What differences are there between bowls and flats?

    GS1k pads are designed for GS1k and would sound strange on others. There was a thread discussing a mod that involves the use of Grado/Alessandro spacers to make it GS1k pad compatible, but I've never listened to one. When people say bowls are uncomfortable, they're not kidding. I suggest you...

    Apple stock retreats as Jobs takes medical leave Hope he gets well, partly so I can tell off the tards who chickened out. I'm impressed by our forum's civility regarding this matter. Other forums with the same news are flooded with bad puns and PC virus vs Mac cancer jokes. Kudos to us!

    <= Curious: why do people ask for inexpensive furniture advice on the internet? Wouldn't it be better to go to your local furniture store and try sitting on them with your cat/headphones? That would be a far more effective shopping tactic than to ask for advice on a piece of equipment whose...
