      Apple Music is retarded.

        My case is a bit different though, I was assuming 'liking' a song would put them somewhere I can access easily. I happen to run into songs I like when listening to different playlists while commuting, and thought that by 'liking' them, I'd be able to find them later. Adding them to my library is also a way, but I'll have to add them to a playlist manually to play them all.

        Yeah, I was just saying that your library becomes playlist in itself but I understand what you’re saying

      Noticed treble fuckery from KANN comparing to Mojo & WM1A. Now found out my office SDAC also shows the same characteristic. #nomoredsdacs

        Actually not that prominent on the SDAC but once you hear it...

      Waiting for the end-game performance, mid-fi priced amp to show up in 2018: Lyr3? Liquid Platinum? Mjolnir3? Have to HODL till year end.

      LS50 arrived, resolution is way better than my vintage Bose. I’m hearing familiar graininess of underamped drivers... Schiit! Need new amps.

        Thanks, but I might want to stay put for a while though. Heard Jason mentioned of a Vidar-sized class A power amp on Ad-fi, I also got a feeling they’re updating Rag soon...

      Plugged VE Monks in Jot & MCTH for fun. Found that the sound signature changes the same way as the HD650s. Ridiculously scalable earbuds.

        I might have to buy extras again. I hardly use my Monk Plus ear buds but when you use them they sound amazingly good.

        Shame about my small ears but those VE Monks HURT. Still, yeah, they do sound surprisingly good for the price

        Being so cheap yet scaling so well, they’re the best for convincing friends that Amps/DACs do make a difference. It’s priceles seeing their face when they finally understands it.

      Third time with the HE-1 using my own music...sounds like a super HD650. Yet there’s more wow moments from my Gumby+Jot+HD800S. Must be deaf

      Ad-Fi home page is getting more and more like Shanghai metro... letting each sponsor cover all the space with unified ads

        I kind of feel like allowing the ads to show would be a way to support the forums/blogs/sites I love visiting though, so didn’t think of blocking them. But the IN-YOUR-FACE style on Ad-Fi is a bit too much.

      HD650. Discontinued(?) Legend. Finally really owning one in the house. How did I choose a D5000 over this years ago?

      Amber Rubarth's album "Sessions From the 17th Ward" might be the best thing that ever happened to my HD800S.

        Yeah... it's a good one. Have you listened to Macy Gray's Stripped (also a Chesky binaural)?

        Will definitely give it a try, thanks! I’ve been using Chesky’s Ultimate Heaphone Demo album to test different gears for a while and found the album to scale extremely well with upgrades.

      I thought drums on HE4XX were legit. Then LCD-2C arrived and by direct comparison, the HE-4XX drums sound like fart now.

        "eager to perform". I know that isn't a euphemism.

        Drop tests are also on my mind when I made the mental comparison haha. I’ll make sure I get a case for gumby.

        I'll be honest: I did the same the first time I got to demo one. Given how ears are shaped, placing the curved front on backwards is just more intuitive.

        Even if that is the case, if the Sennheiser had anything official to do with Dior for that commercial(?), you would think somebody would have said something.

      On Mac, iTunes streaming with "sound enhancer" turned ON makes it sound exactly like Spotify. wtf Spotify?

        I originally thought that the audible difference was because of the formats. Now I think it’s because Spotify has a secret tuning that can’t be turned off...

        I feel that Spotify’s tuning sounds warmer at first, but there’s a lost of transients compared to iTunes.

        People with cheap headphones do not care. Pump up the bass, rich midrange and some highs are enough. They spend hundreds on a smart phone/device but maybe 20 Dollars on ear buds. So hey.
