    AirPods Pro are better than expected. Apple has really done some great R&D into noise cancellation - it's excellent. The sound quality itself is what you would expect. The detail retrieval is no more than okay. There's a degree of smear. The D/A conversion depends a lot on how good the recording engineer is. The 1966 Tristan was shrill, but a lot of other stuff is fine. They are more spacious than I expected. The venting of the original and Pro versions both are better than expected on that score. They are not particularly transparent. The sound of the Brendel/Abbado Brahms 1 sounds veiled. Solo piano is an astringent failure.

    Obviously, the portability factor is amazing. They're the most portable headphones I own, along with the original AirPods. The downside to battery powered headphones though is that they are disposable, and gradually become less able to hold a charge as you use them. I could see myself taking these for weekend trips to LA and foregoing KSE1500.

    It's a hardware subscription service where you make a payment every 2 or 3 years, unfortunately.

    For all Apple talks about being environmentally conscious, it's all marketing drivel, to be blunt.

    Very true. However, in the context of what we consume and throw away - all the plastic packaging, the single use water bottles and milk jugs and soda bottles and yoghurt containers and plastic wrap and to-go Tupperware - I have to say that AirPods are less of a dumpster fire they could be, in terms of enjoyment gained per unit of plastic thrown out.

    Got another kilo of the sweet shop, as well as 350g of the decaf.

    I may need to start getting smaller bags, the kilo gets a little stale by the end

    Getting another 5 lbs of kona extra fancy, quality coffee at a great price, hope this co in Calgary keeps up the promo.

    Rococo fine foods, the kona is on sale but they do 30% off for short periods so I double combine for a 100$ order

    Just finished my Ethiopian. A sad thing when it is gone.

    Note the stack of Schiit gear on the top shelf of the case to the left of all the coffee brewing stuff.

    Honestly I think Rag/Yggy would simplify my life, and let me put the Panache into storage.
