    THREE?! Is Scotty like the "and the rest" on Gilligan's Island now?

    My favorite Star Trek character is Mugato.

    I liked Mary Ann, Ginger was too scrawny. Are these determinations subjective?
  3. bigshot
    It's objective if you're basing your level of interest on measurements.
  4. StanD
    IMO Mary Ann had better measurements.

    Nope, only the measurements are objective. Your interest is based on your subjective evaluation of objective measurements. Example: what THD measurement would you consider below audibility? 3%?
    0.1% (does the zero make the number seem smaller?)

    Different people will have different acceptable minimums. Others will want more than one figure. The numbers are just measurements, what hey mean to you is subjective.
  6. pinnahertz
    Mary Ann's measurements are objective, what you think of them...or think of when you hear them...is subjective.

    But to provide incontrovertible proof of concept, I think we should run some experiments.
  7. StanD
    You're a little late for that, she's 78. Then again that may be a subjective judgement, for you. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
  8. pinnahertz
    Never too late for proof of concept, maybe not with her...
  9. Strangelove424
    Hate to bring reviews into a measurements discussion, but apparently Bob Denver agreed with you.
  10. StanD
    OK, but where's the test data?
  11. bigshot
    How did that burn in thread land here? Did they think we would be interested in it?

    I put it there. Subjective claims being made, when objective measurements tell us that the likelihood of it being audible are next to nil. We're not talking speakers - we're talking IEMs, and dynamic drivers to boot. Sound Science is the obvious place to put it. Do you have an objection?

    yesterday I demonstrated once again how good I am at being an idiot. I was trying to get lost in the woods with an audiobook in my ears like I like to do to relax(it's my "fishing" moment), and between chapters there was this cool Bela Fleck version of Dance macabre. BTW I guessed who it was right away thanks mostly to my total ignorance, as the only guy I know by name with a banjo is him. banjo isn't really big in France ^_^.

    I really enjoyed it and behaved like a fool between each chapters, walking at the pace of the music and playing "air whatever" with my hands. silly but so fun.
    so of course I come home and look for it on youtube to get the full piece before I decide to buy it if it's available, and while still cool, it felt slow and dull in comparison. so here I am wondering if there is another version, plugging my IEMs in case that's why it doesn't feel the same. I was looking for anything, even checked that my EQ was OFF. I find nothing and conclude that somehow it must have something to do with walking and how good I felt up there in the mountain.

    turns out I was listening to the audiobook at 1.5X the speed ^_^.

    No, I just wonder if anyone here will jump in on it. It's specific to a particular brand of IEMs. We've had lots of general burn in threads already. Maybe someone in here is familiar with that particular model and can comment.

    My favorite burn in fables are about DACs. I have to fasten my seatbelt before reading them.
