    I can only hope!  [​IMG]  TBH, I'll happily review whatever Eric wants to send me, regardless of what it is.  [​IMG]  Nothing stops me from being honest (as you can tell) so I can't promise that I'll like it.  But why wouldn't I - or any of us for that matter - not want to give a unit a thorough evaluation right?

    HD900?  Oh see, now I'm getting that feelin' deep in my loins.  From the sound of that hernia exam you're gettin' there, seems you're feelin' something too.  [​IMG]

    Yeah that will be a full production version of that HD800 + HD650 abomination. Quad Drivers. head gear, neck brace, big glasses to hide your face, and a bandanna.

    I gave up trying to figure out the naming/numbering scheme long ago.  Resorted to looking at street prices as being more meaningful.  But yeah, you're probably right on that one.

    EDIT:  I actually heard IPodPJ's stacked 800/650 at the L.A. Meet this past weekend.  FWIW, he was totally right.  I'd do it myself if it didn't involve a hideous expenditure of funds.  [​IMG]
     
    Oh bro, you don't know the half of it.  They'll simply re-launch this as well.

    [​IMG] ROFL, I honestly don't know!  But WiR3D asked for "quad drivers, head gear, neck brace" and stuff.  Who am I to disappoint a headphoneus supremus?

    I just check it out on Amazon and it seems to be a "Best Of". Was that the one you meant?

    Yup, that's the one!  http://www.amazon.com/Gentle-Sounds-Best-Railway-Children/dp/B0000CC7HQ  Though it's not really a "best of" in the traditional sense.  They basically took all of their most popular songs and went MTV Unplugged on them.  [​IMG]  Sample before you buy if you can.  They're very different recordings, and not all Railway Children fans love them this way.

    Oh, I probably need this then. Thank you for clarifying. 
     
    I'm almost convinced that 1986-1991 were five (or six) of the best years ever for pop music.

    I wholeheartedly agree.  Those years just happened to encompass my high school years - which for many of us is a time of profound musical discovery.  [​IMG]  BritPop evolved and flourished into a rich and varied sub-genre then.  Towards the end of that period, even a few American Alternative bands started to receive some mainstream attention as they rose up out of the obscurity that was college radio.  In fact, now that I think about it, for a long time I was pretty pissed off that Grunge came along and changed the entire landscape.  [​IMG]  Oh well, times change.
     
    LOL, one of my favorite songs just popped up through a playlist shuffle... All I Want  by Toad the Wet Sprocket.  I think that part of the reason why I like this song so much is that it falls right within my vocal range.  Lemme tell ya, this song + me + a shower, I sound LIKE A LEGEND!  [​IMG]

    It looks like they caught him watching some kind of illegal pornography and he wasn't sure if he exited the window in time.

    And how does the tune using your voice sound thru the Pioneer SE-MJ591?[​IMG][​IMG] J/K
     
    TTWS...another great band. Do note (if you haven't already) that there are two mixes of All I Want...the one on the original fear album and the other mix is on the best of collection PS A Toad Retrospective.

    Pretty much like I stepped out of said shower.  Reality hits pretty hard.

    Yup, though I just found out about the Retrospective version a few months ago.  I'll always be partial to the Fear version (mainly due to emotional and sentimental reasons), but I gotta say that the Retrospective version is quite good in it's own right.  Same goes for both versions of Good Intentions while we're on the subject.

    Hi. Love the hd215: good build, good seal, very nice coiled cable and honest sound. quality bass instead of quantity.

    Will a headphone amp such as FiiO E11 benefit the hd215? I've an E5 + L3 used with ipod touch 4g, but there's not much improvement apart from increased volume ability. Imho, overall it actually sounds better when used direct from the ipod.

    So, i just wonder if e11 can perform better.
