One thing I've noticed: there's no one independent resource for comparing microphone frequency response. I get why, but feels an oversight. Dec 7, 2022 at 11:58 PM

      [Help] Any way to determine the specs on Fostex HP-V1 battery? Opened it to get rid of dust and found battery swelling a bit.

        It's slight but I had trouble fitting the board back into chassis when I tried, which is when I noticed there was something off: https://i.imgur.com/0hqtHsQ.jpg

        @atomicbob that's the worry. I was supposed to ship these off to a new home but realised that'd have been stupid given the condition. This sucks.

        @Vtory the main reason I explored the site was because they had some squiggles for less common gear, my own main headphones included for reference :P

        The translation is passable enough, the graphs are their main selling point IMO, even though I'm still trying to decipher them.

        @Elnrik Pretty much my thoughts too. They'll probably be more aggressive in other regions like my own to compensate, lol. Huawei is already pretty ubiquitous hereabouts dangit :))

        Huawei could be in deep trouble. They are absolutely dependent on US companies for many components that cannot just be sourced elsewhere and their in-house processors are way behind the game.

        @DigMe I honestly didn't know that Huawei was so depended on others for their components. Given they're based in Shenzhen where they practically breathe tech I'd have thought they'd be somewhat more autonomous.

        I use them with Shure Olives for more comfort. I am hoping to replace the Noble X before too long because these aren’t a great solution for music listening if you want any low freqs. The other freqs are inoffensive with decent detail IMO.

        @DigMe sounds like a decent portable pair then, haha. Well it'll be maybe a week before they get here, so there's that time before I drop more needless impressions :P

        @Biodegraded I'll be honest, I've been suspecting the same for a while now, but short of proper testing I'd rather not risk coming off as uppity and just call myself treble-insensitive, haha

        @Soups On first listen I immediately wanted to buy cheap cables and strangle the person that okayed this. It makes Imagine Dragons sound like a Deutsche Grammophon record. The soundtrack is the fun kind I can normally easily get behind, but I was being polite when I called sound quality horrific.

        Do you know of the use of pencil eraser blocks placed under turn-tables in audio? That is a thing. It actually works well enough to try with other equipment as long as you know how much the eraser blocks can carry under a plank of wood.

        Sounds silly, kind of works with similar materials like rubber mats under cutting boards in kitchens. Think about it...

        You can try a reintroduction, although it might be too late. Give new cat a room or part of the house and let them smell each other but not see each other. Keep them away for at least 30-60 days. Then let them see each other gradually for another 30-60 days.

        Yes, there are brain waves that fall under 20Hz and sympathetic resonances are a thing but to propose that tectonic plate activity (among others) might be causing people to act aggressively and that taking measures to alleviate symptoms of long-term LFIN exposure could reduce global terrorism seems a bit of a stretch.
