  1. Thank you all for welcoming me into the age of fragile hips and knees.
  2. Those geekrias are probably the same as a set I ordered on ebay a year or two ago. There are dozens of postings for the same product. The center protrusion flattens out pretty smoothly once you've used them a while. These are comfier than I remember flats ever being. I haven't purchased flats in a very long time, so I can't do a sound comparison. I want to say that these have a similar distance to the ear. Total thickness seems to be 20mm, with the pad thickness above the driver being 10mm. Anyone out there with a set of calipers able to measure out the thickness of TTVJ flatpads? edit: Thickness measurements are of a used set while on the headphones. If I find my spare set, I'll give them a slap on the arse with my calipers.
  3. Thank you to all you lovely people... And Brent too. I shall celebrate by setting fire to some budget audio gear.
  4. I like to call it tactical deceleration. @Aimless1 FYI... I've lent my KZ-ATE to my nephew a few times to use on his switch. They're not a permanent solution by any means, but I haven't heard any complaints and they are under $20.
  5. So a year has passed since anyone mentioned the Soekris. Has anyone else here purchased one and form an opinion yet? NT-503 looks temptingwith today's ebay promotion. edit: I'm a dope and the soekris has its own thread. Thanks for your input, gepardcv.
  6. On an equally relevant note, I haven't heard Ace of Base on the radio in years.
  7. I probably should not have entered this thread, but that loaf is damn near inspiring, Mikey.
  8. I like to point things out. It's what I do. While I think flats are pricey, anyone already planning to pick up a replacement soon wouldn't be spending that much more in grabbing one of these. I'll stick with my cheap-bastard HD414 pads while they are still about $10 apiece. Even if you need to buy a knife to cut the holes, you're still saving a bunch of dosh. Consumer matters, automotive matters, anti-Colin matters
  9. Did any of you goons buy into this one during the kickstarter? I was a bit wary of buying into a game so early in development, but the scope's looking pretty damn big now, and it's still in alpha. It's a huge space simulator in a huge persistent universe, but it also has some more simplified sub-games like arena combat and space racing. There's a free weekend going on right now, so I'll probably fly around and shoot at junk. It's a bit of a behemoth download at 27gb, so my condolences to any of you recently inflicted with Comcast. https://robertsspaceindustries.com/ for more info on what the game is about. It won't be listed on steam or origin, since it's basically a company that started with a kickstarter and has pulled in something like 100mil in crowdfunding. There's no publisher to breathe down their backs to cut content to make arbitrary deadlines, but also no one to force them to cut back on hookers and blow so things can get done. Hence, you need to sign up on their website: https://robertsspaceindustries.com/enlist. My referral code is STAR-HQPD-Q546 if you want some free in-game-dosh. Just enter it in on the sign up page. If you have a buddy that already has the game and you think he's prettier than I am, feel free to use his code as you get the same benefit... though I won't get the fancy little go-cart. edit: Free "weekend" is apparently expanded to last until the 8th. Anyone want to do some junk in game let me know. Game's pretty fun, but obviously incomplete. Ship balance doesn't appear to be one of the dev concerns right now, so the pvp arena is a bit iffy.
  10. Have you tried the new Beats electrostat amp? It really is revolutionizing the industry.
  11. Not nearly desperate enough for the DSD upgrade, unless I can get the upgrade for about 2k (not paying 3k to essentially have refurb equipment of something no one I trust has auditioned). I'll either do a swap for a mk2, or look for another dac (perhaps the m51 or the auralic vega).
  12. Well, now there's one way to hyperinflate your dynamic range specs.
  13. I wish i had jumped on the mk2 upgrade kit earlier. Apparently they don't offer upgrade boards to the mk2 anymore. They do have upgrade boards, but it's a friggin' $3k upgrade to some fancy new directstream dac (damn thing's 6k new). That's a good bit of distance from what I wanted to spend.
  14. To anyone who loves Robocop and isn't afraid of some really NSFW Robocop remake action... This is an absolute must-see. Warning: Thar be dicks down yonder.
