    After searching for years, finally picking up a HE4. Will be fun to mod and get some ear-time with this obscure headphone.

    Prophile 8 is an excellent sounding IEM. Unfortunately no amount of tip-rolling gives me a comfortable fit. Stagedivers are not a problem.

      If you ‘cock ring’ them you can try spiral dots, which I found to be most comfortable with the Prophiles.

      1. Cut the central coloured part out of a spinfit. 2. Split into two ‘rings’. 3. Slide the ring onto the shaft. 4. Wunderbar! You will now have enough girth to use spiral dots.

      Actually, I think I made it out of that central part of a comply that is left over after you peel the butt plug material off. There have been so many cock rings over the years sometimes I lose track of what went where...

      At least we can be happy that the remake of Road House starring Rhonda Rousey in Patrick Swayze's roll appears to be shelved for now. Hopefully it stays that way. Road House 2 was already bad enough, lol.

    I'm 90% sure David Bowie had tinnitus, or hearing damage, which made him master some of his albums overly bright. Still a big fan of course.

      Yeah, I don't rate the Benchmark Dacs. They're very overpriced IMHO. They'd be ok for some tastes, and some systems, for half the price they are.

      Zero sabre glare, ultra resolving, pitch black background. Source match compared to the Yggdrasil A2, the X-Sabre has the grayness removed, sound-stage is wider and I hate to use this word, but more air around the instruments. I think on par or better than the Mytek Manhattan dac but way cheaper. But yeah, destroys Benchmark Dac3 and the horrible Brooklyn +. Not sure why the Matrix is not discussed here more often.

      Yep, the Porta Pro is an old design, dating back to '84, I think? Easier to imagine call center workers in the '80s with their Porta Pro and little pompom mic. They sound better than they have any right to, though!

      Lab results for lab cat were within normal range - likely a one-off event. Life has returned to regularly scheduled chaotic program. AES meeting was a great interview of Bob Ezrin. DSHA-3F is proving to be a fantastic listen, especially nice presentation of Pink Floyd.
