        Forget headphone measurements. Far more illuminating are the EEGs of SBAF friends listening to different headphones.

        Like bring it home? I know I can listen at the store but I'd like to try some pad stuff and test it on amps on hand.

        They have the Elear, clear and utopia there. Can try swapping pads on the spot. it’ll allow you to compare to the Clear

        Drag your classic 3 and ZD down there and you’re good :p

        @Grahad2 agreed but I did the unthinkable and use a dap for all my music so the jack would've been nice for convenience only. Will have to remember the dongle when traveling though!

        I think they should do Chef Boyardee or Pizza the Hutt. You know, real Italians.

        I was wondering if I agreed with your Daughter. But was before they got crappy. So, their Pop-Rock phase (I'm assuming '75 rather than '68) that is interesting. And cute!

      I'm back Sat afternoon... No idea when the Aficionado will be ready though ;)
      I definitely need some bass traps, listening position sounds fairly neutral, almost lean. Then I stand up and I'm like WTF, BOOM city, like a night club or something.

        Hahaha cool man! We'll hang it with or without the Af. Yeah I'd also benefit a bit from traps I think (esp at low volumes) but my wife would never go for it. Room treatment in general is gonna be tricky cause it's the living room.

        My parents have a lot of scorpions in their house. I'm always paranoid when I go out there. Once was drinking coffee on the couch and looked down and one was sitting on my t-shirt over my chest. Jumped up and did a "uhuhuhuhuh" dance while wildly jerking my shirt. Managed to dislodge without getting stung and not spill my coffee
