        Don't stop. Zelda in the living room. Zelda on the toilet. Zelda on the bus. Zelda hiding in the bushes of your neighbor's yard. It's ridiculous.

        Combine the two. This is my solution to the problem of new game vs. new headphones. Works every time if you can hook it up.

      Growing up I always stayed away from live recordings. Now I cannot get enough of it!

        Sonata Arctica also has some good live recordings if you are into this style of music.

        I was going to be seeing Sonata Arctica (along with Delain and Nightwish) play live last year but got sick and couldn't make it. I'll check it out.

        Character development was just average, as with most of the star wars movies. 3rd best film though behind ESB and ANH.

        Would be very interested in your findings. This is the loaner pair so it will be gone by then, but if I decide to buy a pair for myself that would be really helpful.

      I'm at least a bit sorry for leading you astray with a new Jot. Be sure to post a pic when you get it, though- it probably looks sleek as hell in black :)

        Ended up cancelling this morning. I cannot be spending $400 just so I can get a Jot in black, need to save for a bigger DNA amp.

        The temptress will have to try again some other time.

      Finally trying out Discogs. Suddenly all the out of print albums I've been looking for are here and at reasonable prices.

        Yeah, I'm not buying anything again through discogs. Bought some mint and near mint and even sealed LP's that were mostly horrible condition. I'll stick to new (which are also often awful condition though!).

        Forgot to post an update. Ended up getting the album I was looking for and it came brand new/sealed! $13 for an out of print album that goes for 4x that price elsewhere.

      I guess I'm collecting Sennheisers now. Just got an HD560 II in great shape to add to my 600/650/800. Still looking for 540/580.
      1. Serious

        Have you heard the 540? The 540 ref II my dad has with old pads and no front foam is very bright. I suppose the 560 sounds similar, but I haven't heard it.

        Supposedly the 560 Ova II is much warmer sounding. The 540 does come with a stock front foam in place I think. Not entirely sure though. New pads should also play a big role, if the 6x0 is anything to go by.

      I'm coming to realize more and more that there is no 650 upgrade. It is it's own upgrade when you feed it with better gear.

        I've heard Utopia, it's splendid, but I'd probably still keep my 650 if I won Utopia in the Golden Schlong Sweepstakes. I think the HD650 has earned its spot by this point, and I enjoy its sound very specifically.

        Utopia is unobtanium for me right now. I was slightly disappointed in the Elear though.

        Personally I think part of what makes the 650 so great is the value proposition. I think a true 650 successor should be reasonably affordable. As in under 2k.

        Those are the good impulse buys...I've got a garage full of mostly forgotten crap. And I paid good money for just about all of it! But at least it's a small garage...

        I'm guessing the new Valhalla was just so badass they had to skip 3 and go straight to 4.

        Grado forgot that people are not mannequins. We actually have ears, not just holes in the sides of our heads. We're not birds, Grado. For crying out loud.

        The HF2 was fun though. For Jazz that headphone puts a smile on your face. Everything from the budget line, not worth it.
