    my 8 plus is feeling dated. i'd thought about holding out for next year with rumors of 5G, return of touch ID, etc. but most likely i'll end up with with a 256GB 11 Pro Max.

    truly ridiculous end to 2019. very happy for toronto. Kawhi is well on his way to a legendary career be it in canada or (most likely) elsewhere. board man deserves a lot of make-up respect from social media and other fuckers from last season's injury debate. speaking of which... can't believe the bad luck for golden state. 2020 will be weird for them, Steph in particular.

    2019 NHL Playoffs

    had some plans around 7 last night so had to play catch-up on DVR... and very glad i didn't watch live. blues started hot for first 2 minutes, then bruins absolutely took over on possession for virtually the rest of the period. fucking binnington stood on his head and i said to myself at some point "it feels like blues are going to steal a goal here." 10 seconds later they get the deflection through rask. i basically fast-forwarded through the entire second period and bulk of the third because bruins were so obviously-deflated and flat. what irritates me most about these playoffs in general can point directly to the blues' path. first three rounds - i'll give them all the credit. had a ton to fight through, incredibly resilient. then this fucking final series... the league flat-out enabled/allowed berube's comments about officiating to completely change the tone of calling. then game 5... i'm not blaming the refs directly, but i think the league unfortunately bears some level of credit for how this series went. i don't think it would have went seven games... but i'm also not sure that bruins would've won under those other circumstances. very conflicted. feel good for ryan o'reilly. was happy to hear he got the smythe. maybe the only guy on blues that i actually like. feel horrible for rask. @skullguise why does boston hate him so much? hawks will trade you a fucked-up corey crawford 1:1 for him. anyway, there's only one thing we should all remember about 2019... FUCK THE BLUES
  14. not going to create a new thread... figured i'd drop some simple thoughts on the Focal Elex that arrived last week. i decided to grab these after reading ample comparisons to Sennheiser and the notion that these are more energetic with better low-end with some semblance of HD580/600/650 balance. my 580's have sounded so good out of gilmore lite mk2 that this intrigued me. all of the below is my direct thoughts vs. HD580. treble is not as lush/obvious and vocals are slightly recessed... i think it's because of the slight upper-mid dip or whatever the fuck that people have measured on both Elear and Elex bass is drastically better in every regard (quantity, detail) imaging/positioning is a fair bit better and soundstage is wider but not much deeper ^because of all of the above, i think i find these slightly easier to listen with across all genres... read a lot of stupid comments that Focal isn't great for electronic which i could not disagree with more. and much better with rock/metal because of the better low end and tweaked treble. they're not bright and they're not fatiguing. couple other things... fit is good, takes 45 minutes or so before i get a hotspot from the headband because of the weight but no biggie. and these have probably the best finish i've ever experienced on any headphone. ever. i cannot make a single critique of the build quality and anyone who does is a bitch. also all black, murda'd-out headphones are dope. @Dusty Chalk #amirite that's all she fucking wrote. these are the first comments i've typed up for a headphone in nearly 10 years so they must have made some kind of impression.
