Wow, I made it this far without being a friend?, Male, from Manila, Philippines

Someone selling a Nano iDSD Black Label for just under $138 in local groups. Huh. That was fast. Nov 19, 2017 at 5:15 PM

      Turns out NIOSH actually made a SPL measurement app for iOS. Shame it's not on Android, but might be good for on-the-fly measurements.

        For Android, check the Bosch iNVH app. As you scroll through the pages and pages of licence agreement, you might find the list of phones it's been tested with to see if yours has been calibrated, or you can do it manually.

        Bother, incompatible with my device. Ah well, could just use the freebie one I currently have installed and calibrate it another time.

      GDI why is ZMF stuff so hard to audition here. In other news, I spilled 0.6L of hot tea on myself and my bed. Non-bed-wetting streak broken.

        I was think more about establishing contact, express an interest in an audition, and see what happens...

        Huh. Honestly, I didn't think people actually managed to pull that off without some bit of heavy clout behind them. I'm a lot more outspoken online than I am in person (unless someone talks straight up stupid then I go full asshat), so I might be a while dredging up the confidence to arrange that.

        Then again, the PH audio circle is pretty deep in, so maybe I could make it a group thing so they know it's legit and that there's a better chance someone will keep em!

        Thanks for the idea, @ButtUglyJeff! Will see if anyone else local is curious about these.

        By the way, thanks for the video @Riotvan! Was pretty useful— I'm not timid about tinkering, but whether or not I can put something back together... well suffice to say my biggest concern was that these weren't my cans and that buying a replacement would be a bit of a stretch, haha.

      Just found out a local burger place has a Carolina Reaper-sauce burger. Not great with spicy food, but morbidly curious.

        Having said that, similar trepidation about the Carolina Reaper, but eh, as long as I survive the experience I can think back on it as a fun experience.

        I agree. I think it's a great show and Sean is one of the best interviewers period, not just on the Internet. It's a cool format, and usually makes you come away looking at the guest a little differently than you did before

        No arguments from me, the man is in his element (i.e bastard-level hot sauce, haha). Best example of hot sauce disinhibition off the top of my head is probably the Chris Jericho episode, or Bobby Lee XD

      Finally letting go of the iDSD. Mediocre, perhaps, but has a lot of sentimental value. Sigh, well, it's an excuse to finally go Eitr+MIMBY.

        Early this year, I emailed Sennheiser US asking the price of HD650/HD600 earpads. The response I received was that the HD650 was discontinued and earpads were not available. This may be the time, but I don't trust their Reps after that.

        Yeah, I don't know what the deal is but there doesn't appear to be clear communication about this within the company. Some people say it's being discontinued and some are certain it's not going to happen. Weird.

        Honestly, I'd have expected more of Sennheiser, but the way things look (lines being refreshed, little in the way of proper innovation in recent years), I'm not all that surprised that there's a bit of internal upheaval. Who knows, we might get an AKG & Austrian Audio Pt. 2.

        Working my way slowly through my collection, haha. Friend didn't specify when he wanted these back, and since he has his HD 800... lol.

        Started off with baroque. Now going with Sinatra and Lady Day (ergo the status). Live acoustic up next then!

        As for the 650s' missing the foam, he mentioned something about them deteriorating? Considering dropping a bit of cash on replacements + Dynamat so I can try SBAF-modding these.

        How much was...? $430 for the Schiit plus however much it'll cost to get them cross-Pacific, haha.

        Sold off a lot of gear recently for reasons, left with X00 EBs, iDSD silver, and an HP-V1 porta hybrid amp. Eventual upgrade to HD800 once I can manage, plus getting friend pricing on a LP G109A when said friend "upgrades" to CMA-600i.
