    Well at the moment I'm satisfied with FF, and I think quite soon we will have Firefox 3 and I heard that it will be the fastest (or one of the fastest) browser available. I've tried the beta but then I couldn't get flash to work so I just use the stable version now.

    So far I like Ubuntu very much. When installing compiz fusion I thought that I'm going to have a problem with dependencies or something like it happen sometimes in fedora but all the packages were installed perfectly. The only problem I had so far was that I had no sound from the flash player...

    K701 VS. HD650 VS. Beyerdynamic DT990 - I tested them today

    Looking for a nice upgrade from the AKG K26P

    You're right the K171 aren't really efficient but I don't think that there is such a thing as "real impedance", they have 55 Ω (like all the other studio AKGs too) and that's it. The K240 are open and if I'm right you're looking for closed cans so maybe the K271, the closed version of that...

    K701 + DV 332 tubes?

    K701 + DV 332 tubes?

    Have you had a look at this thread? Many tubes for the DV332 are discussed and compared there. Most of the tubes are quite cheap anyway so if money isn't your problem you could even get more than one type of tubes. I think for the power tubes there are only 2 possibilities: the Svetlana and...

    Eyeball Implants--check this out!

    This is gross. I don't like the idea of having something implanted into my eyeball. I think you should be happy that you're not blind and not mess around with your eyes when it's not necessary. @ Kirosia: I really hope that you were kidding...necrophilia is even worse than eyeball implants

    Why do I hate rap and hip-hop, but love Public Enemy?

    I don't care for rap and hiphop either but Public Enemy has to be good..they did a song with Anthrax Public Enemy & Anthrax: Bring The Noise

    Head-fi changed my hairstyle.

    I've done something similar too! I have quite long and curly hair so if I want to put my headphones on it's a bit of a hassle to get the hair out of the way. As my hair is long enough to be tied at the back, this is what I do now and it turned out to be much more convenient anyway so I have...

    K701 and E E-EMU 0404

    A fellow Austrian head-fier uses the Cantate&K701 combination and he is happy with it using the Cantate's inbuilt DAC. He is now looking for different headphones because he has comfort issues with the K701 (if you have short hair this could be a problem for you too).

    Entry-level headphone amps?

    If you listen to music from your PC maybe a combination of a DAC(digital to analog converter) and an amp might be the right choice for you. In your price range you could get a IBasso D1 or a 2Move from Meier audio.

    Question to owners of AKG 701 and Darkvoice 332

    Pro-Ject 1 = Pro-Ject 1 Xpression?!

    Hmm, maybe you're right but I found some reviews and all of the people who have tried better cartridges seem to have good results.

    Pro-Ject 1 = Pro-Ject 1 Xpression?!

    Some time ago I posted that I want to get into vinyl. I talked to my uncle and he said that he could give me his Pro-Ject 1. So I looked at the Pro-Ject website but I didn't find a "Pro-Ject 1". I don't know why but I thought that it is an older version of the Debut III and I thought that I'd...

    One Genre for the Rest of Your Life...What Would It Be?

    I could maybe live just listening to metal. There are so many different styles and there are big differences from subgenre to subgenre. There are genres that are much more limited in my opinion. Tango for example doesn't have that many different styles or something, still my mother somehow...

    AKG K701 vs Sennheiser HD650

    I voted for K701, but I don't think they're "better" than HD650. For most of my music I prefer their sound though. I think maybe I will get some HD600/650 someday to have a counterpart to my K701.

    explain what an eargasm is to you...

    I think it is when something sounds much better than you expected, it has not much to do with the equipment but rather the music. Sometimes it's just a special moment in a song that sounds so good. For example the first time I heard Frank Solari on K701. It was like "I Never knew guitar strings...
