... Has anyone ever tried lining the ear canals on a dummy measurement head with soft leather or something, to simulate skin reflections? Jan 16, 2018 at 6:05 AM

      Sister went to a salon for blonde highlights (she's brunette), bottom 70% of hair turned straight up grey. She's crying. GDI.

        @JK47, "I didn't go bald, the hair moved to my chest"

        You're lucky. The hair on my chest went grey and the head stuff started growing out of my nose and ears.

        I thought I could look distinguished and romantic in old[er] age, with a thick head of silver hair. All I got was the thick head.

        Went back to the salon almost immediately after. They tried fixing it a bit and now it's an ashy blonde colour at the ends.

        It kinda sucks since my sister was pretty fond of her hair, but as you say, it does grow back. Ah well, maybe she'll just thwock the lot off and rock a pixie cut or something.

        Glad they were able to fix it at least a little. Sorry to hear about the hair though. On the plus side, at least she escaped without face/scalp injuries. I've heard some real horror stories...

      What to do when you get into a convo with someone who says all DACs are the same and that an ODAC is endgame?

        Granted, it was my fault for initiating and suggesting an ODAC may be a bottleneck given the rest of his chain (they posted a WTB for one in a FB group I'm in for $90), but gah.

        Also, @ButtUglyJeff, they do save money in the end, though, so not sure who the actual winners are LOL

        By the way, just as a mental exercise, for the everything-sounds-the-same crowd, you could try saying that everything /could/ sound the same if simple transparency was /everybody's/ design criteria. But it isn't, and never will be.

        The actual criterion is anything from house sound to broken!

        Amazon has them for not much more.

        What really bites is how the seller said that these were a collaborative limited edition, similar to the HD650, and that they're selling it for much less than the HD650 MSRP here. What they neglected to mention is that the HD6XX only goes for $199 new.

        This is just disappointing.

        And thanks, @zerodeefex and @Azteca! Didn't think the headband issue was quite that bad, so bother. As for the ATs, got to try them but they weren't quite my thing. Ah well, search goes on, haha.

        Also, IIRC you had a Bea avatar before, yeah?

        Astolfo from fate apocrypha, I guess it's not really crossplay per say, but it means I'm wearing a miniskirt :). And yeah I had a Bea avi before, I figure since everyone has cat avatars so I swapped mine out as well.

        I bring my X00s to school, and the minimal leak but low isolation took a bit of getting used to. Useful in certain settings, but I can see how there being basically no attenuation might be a problem for many.

        Whichever she ends up getting, I'll get to listen to anyway, so yay for trying new stuff out :))

        I shelled out for some okay-ish IEMs pretty much just for hearing protection purposes (I don't really like listening to music through IEMs, for whatever reason). Guess I might as well invest in proper plugs though.

        @Cspirou Heck YES they should. Or at least make sure not to crank volumes up to obscene levels just because they can.

        Hmm, those Etymotics look cool.
