  1. I always thought that "veiled unless amped properly" just meant "like most headphones, they sound best when properly amplified."
  2. I never thought the HD650 was veiled or dark. I just thought they were a bit bassier than the HD580 and 600, as you say.
  3. That is definitely not how Massdrop mostly works. I interviewed with them for a job, in 2014, and got the express tour. The business, behind the scenes, is quite different from how it appears, on its face. Keep in mind that Ireland is a big part of the descriptor for these phones. It's not cheap to manufacture things there, anymore, and hasn't been for years. Sennheiser almost certainly produced a big lot of components, and has been doling them out. Also keep in mind that the largest part of Sennheiser revenue is not audiophile products.
  4. I drove by my precinct, earlier. It was a mess. I'm glad I absentee voted, weeks ago.
  5. I very much doubt it. This smells like Sennheiser clearing old parts inventory.
  6. Where did you see that posted, originally? I know that Justin would be interested in knowing where a pic of his amp was published!
  7. That feels about right. Amazing how much more power you need for small gains, once you are up the curve.

    Fun Facts

    The third largest airforce in the world is the US Army air branch, unless you include UAV/UCV, at which point the US Army becomes the world's largest air force.
  9. That sounds like a good set of phones, then. I liked the L3000 a lot.
  10. the W10VTG are very pretty. I've never heard a pair.
  11. For sure. That treble on the HD-800, even modded, just killed me, long term. Everything else was great. Maybe I should just get the HD-800S, but I don't wanna spend the money. Did I mention that the Tesla T1 can be had, used, for $400? And that I liked them, quite a lot, with my gear?
  12. I think that pizza looks well done. How was the leopard spotting on the bottom?
  13. Fincher's Zodiac is about the Zodiac Killer. Notice the "if" in the statement about Stephenson's Zodiac. Watching Fight Club again, for the first time in so long, just convinced me that if anybody did direct an adaptation of the book Zodiac, Fincher has the right mix for it. I've edited the comment for clarity.
  14. I was making a self-deprecating joke about myself (hence the "p-value is okie dokie" and "what works for the Grado HP-2 is valid for other phones"), that I guess didn't come out very well. I used to run double-blind tests on cables and shit, that you probably don't remember, and blabbered about them constantly, thinking I was hot shit. I never ran a test between modded 414s and flats. I don't think modded 414s ever sounded all that great, though.
  15. You have to mod the 414 pads, and I've double blinded it: they don't sound as good as the flats. 30 percent of listeners declare them as sounding worse than flats, as opposed to 10 percent the other way. With 10 people, the p-value is okie dokie. This was done with HP-2 headphones, but I think it's valid for other Grado phone.
  16. Fight Club. I haven't seen this since high school. I saw it for the first time in the theater. I now recognize how much this influenced me. Perfect movie for 16 year olds exploring politics. It's really good. Also really stupid. I love David Fincher. Glad I grew out of this. Fincher is great, though: his Zodiac is still the best mainstream movie from 2000-2010, in my opinion. If anybody ever directed a movie version of Neal Stephenson's Zodiac, I'd want it to be Fincher.
  17. It's been a long time since I've had dessert. Cheers, mate.
  18. I'm using a 10 year old pair of flats on my RS-1s, and they haven't turned to powder at all.

    Westworld

    I loved the Radiohead on the player piano. I'm also worried about Elsie. And the designers of the hosts broke Jacob's first rule of robotics: never make your AI sexbots faster and stronger than people! The Terminator is not a how-to guide!
  20. Awesome! That amount of horsepower and that speed result (while impressive) also explains why the Veyron looks like a well-used bar of soap!
