    Have there been any latency studies?

    Hello there Head-Fiers!, I was curious if there have been any studies conducted to determine how much latency a bluetooth connection must have before the average person will notice a lag. Unsynchronized lip movement during dialogue in movies being an example. Have any studies of this sort been...

    The "Dude Flick" Movie Club

    I have decided to tweak the focus of this thread a little. Even before creating this thread, I toyed with the idea of creating this "dude flick movie club" as I call it, in which people can post their favorites and also discuss all things dude flick related. I know that Head-Fi already has a...

    What is a dependable tower PC manufacturer?

    Hello Head-Fiers, what is a dependable manufacturer of tower PCs? I think I've seen a lot of businesses/schools using Dell, if I remember correctly. Are they onto something? I think, at some point, I would like to purchase a modular tower PC, because it seems to me that that would be cheaper...

    Custom-tipped SE215s don't have much sound isolation

    I've been using the Sensaphonics custom sleeves for my Shure SE215s for several months now and am a little disappointed with how little sound they block. Is it because the sleeves are made of silicone? Actual CIEMs are made from a different material, aren't they? I can't afford (or justify...

    Hello everyone. I was wondering if, from a subjective point of view, the Echo Dot sounds better and gets louder than the speaker on the iPhone 6. I imagine that it does, but I wanted to make sure before I purchase one. Thank you.

    Trying Reddit for the first time, recommendations for communities?

    Hello there Head-Fiers, as I mentioned in the title of this thread, I am trying Reddit for the first time and I was wondering if anybody had recommendations for subreddits. They don't neccesarily have to be audio-related, but I would prefer for the communities to be smaller in size (not with...

    Recommendations for other good forums?

    Hi all, I've lost a lot of the passion that I once had for audiophilism (though it isn't completely gone), but I still enjoy belonging to an online community such as this, and I still have an interest in the tech industry in general. So I was wondering if any of you had some good recommendations...

    Do you think that the movie "Krampus" will be any good?

    I'm not normally a fan of the contemporary horror flick, but I think that it is an interesting idea for a horror movie and it could be good, if done correctly. For those who don't know, the being known as 'Krampus' is a 'horned, anthropomorphic figure who punishes children during the Christmas...
