    I would love to attend this meet up if it ends up being in Austin.    I haven't have anything of interest to bring either.

    Are the HF-2/650/701 the Headphone Trinity?

    I tire of the ES7's quickly as well and i've been thinking of selling them for a while but never really wanted to let them go. back to the original topic Brighten posted something about a trinity a while ago "Flame me if you will, but every time I see the Senn, AKG and Grado trio, I always...

    AKG 702 burn/break-in OK with just iPod?

    Headphone and hats

    my friend manages to wear a helmet over his portpros. I havent found a way to do the same with my grados. Hear in texas we don't really have a reason to wear a hat for warmth so I don't really have much other advice.

    Should headphone companies recommend various amps for their headphones?

    Quote: Originally Posted by nwkid178 If companies recommended an amp, it would end up being all about money, and marketing I think. I would rather read on head fi and similar forums and see what other actual customers recommend based upon how they use the phones/what type of music they...

    Should headphone companies recommend various amps for their headphones?

    There would also be problems where ymmv kicks in. People probably won't take it too well when they blow all that money on the recommended set up and then don't like it. Though I don't really see that happening too often, but when it does, the unhappy tend to be very vocal about their slights...

    outlook of this site

    Searching for and finding what you are looking for is really too difficult. I can see how that can be alleviated somewhat by standardizing post titles with some nomenclature for reviews and such so that searching for those will be easier to find. Thats really all I would like to have fixed.

    Help! I'm indecisive.

    Could something I read on Head-Fi actually be Urban Legend?

    Quote: Originally Posted by Uncle Erik Yes, it is there. Awhile back, someone did frequency sweeps of the K-501. Not only is there bass, but it goes surprisingly deep. Just because it doesn't sound like a $29.99 PepBoys subwoofer rattling your trunklid, that doesn't mean it has "bad"...

    ATH-AD700 Uncomfortable...what instead?

    By the looks of the arm thingies, they should rest on your head the same way. As for the shape of the cups and the pressure they put on your face, I have no idea.

    Before you buy headphones: A hopefully helpful guide for newbies

    just had a "why did it take so long for someone to do this?" moment. great work. I wish I had heard Uncle Erik's advice earlier. Oh, the better part of a month spent here, the same month my grades tanked.

    I agree, but he would like them closed.

    Could something I read on Head-Fi actually be Urban Legend?

    My grado sr60s are the comfiest headphones I own. I still have adjusted to IEMs and the ES7's are just plain fatiguing. And I think the bass in the sr60 is perfectly adequate. I also like classical through the sr60s and i've never heard anyone mention using grados for classical. just a thought.

    Yet another headphones recommendation thread ($130 or less)

    FWIR, audio -techina m50s are good all-arounder sealed headphones. They are a little out of your budget though. maybe wait for a deal in the FS forums...

    Ever Since I Joined Head-Fi I Stare at People's Headphones

    i have yet to see any IEMs or headphones better than the ones i own, which is pitiful considering that i own entry level audio gear. despite living in an affluent community, no one seems to care about audio much. not among my peers at the very least. i stare at (and scoff) the poor souls who own...

    Should the U.S., Myanmar and Liberia be encouraged to go metric?

    i use a lot of metric becuase of all the science classes i take. mostly weight though. For everything i use the imperial system. For measuring height, feet and inches are more convientant to visulize. I can't really imagine how tall 164cm is. the problem is that decimeters isnt really used which...

    Analytical and Cold vs. Fun and Warm

    i like slightly cold but not necessarily analytical. I like the fun phones (es7 and grado). I also have er-6i's and I prefer them slightly over my UM1's which are a bit less detailed and more neutral.

    You ever 'bust a move' in public?

    I second the toe tap and head bob. I will sing randomly too (at school or home). I get weird looks all the time, but i dont really mind.
