    Grado woody misalignment on the engraving--anybody else got them?

    Quote: None taken at all. I've had my own share of chuckles from myself and from others who've seen this. They say it's a unique production error that could be one-of-a-kind, so I started this thread just to make sure.

    The iBasso D12, dual dacs . images . new Sysconcept optical cable . . Topkit by HiFlight. .

    When head-fi people flare other headphones...

    a lot of explaining has to be done to these "inexperienced" ones if they want to understand our hobby. especially if they're the type that try to justify the price of mid-level cans but can't even distinguish lows, mids, and highs. what makes it futile at times is that they look for a short...

    Headphone Sightings 2

    ESW9s at the arcade in a posh mall. Looked pretty smug when Skullcandy boys were staring at his cans. Smug enough to keep them around his neck the whole time he was there.

    Brüno Headphone Sightings

    At the end of the film Brüno, Cohen sings with Bono, Sting, Elton, Stevie, etc and I think I spotted a 7506. Then there's that golden AKG I'm not yet familiar with. If you've watched the film, tag those 'phones here! Bonus points for identifying OJ's cans.
