    I should delete the other template.

    I use the cobalt template. The tin template looks like it was created by a drunk, colorblind sailor after a terrible storm and was stranded a desert island in a cave with no light.

    There are a few Frys locations that still have AT440MLBs for $120. It's a pretty good deal compared to ~$200 from BHP. Local pickup from the stores only though, so it looks like only those near Dallas, Phoenix, or Portland can still get one.

    I think it was changed to black on back. Very fucked up now.

    I like darker themes on phones and lighter on monitors, but for reading, good old black on white, understood to be the most legible combination since the beginning of print, is best.

    Well, on paper, it is. On a backlit source, the white needs toning down. Cobalt theme theme here: no purple and no eye strain. All is good!

    The HD650 cable appears to be back in stock after a loooong absence

    https://en-us.sennheiser.com/accessories--hd-650--cable

    Only $11 shipped, plus tax


    Warning (for California residents only):
    Please note per Proposition 65 that this product may contain chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm.

    I guess the chemicals won't cause cancer if you don't live in California!

    especially because your life will be shorter with these cables if you are in California

    Screw that noise. Me not wanting everything to give me cancer is just one reason among many that I refuse to move to CA.

    @aufmerksam, I could live with the cancer. Couldn't live with the ridiculous cost of living, progressive state income tax, and their lack of bar reciprocity. ;)

    Pretty sure that's the lowest HD650 cable price I've ever seen.

    Perhaps they're selling the cables they made for the HD6XX Massdrop? I just got a shipping notification that the replacement cable is arriving from that six month old drop.

    I think they were back logged from that disaster, and now they are caught up. $11 is their regular price.

    Those massdrop cables are only like 6 inches long. Nowhere near 3m.

    That's their standard price. It's just rarely in stock.
