      New workplace, people have ultrawide monitors but use 16:9 rez and the monitors stretch to fit. The horror.

        Nah, it's all good, the devs know what they're doing and it wouldn't be a corporation if they didn't severely under use the available hardware.

      Shortly after introducing a 2K cable, Danacable unveiled the Nirvana...3.5K for a HP cable. Next up the Orgasmatron for 6K. Poor suckers...

      HD580 bested all my other headphones and everything else I've heard ever. Scaling is over HD650/HD800

        Dynamat, coin and no back foam with DIY cable. The headphones themselves are the cheapest component in my system and by a good margin even after tubes, cables, source etc.

        That's for sure, there are so many spacial cues that make for an incredible experience. Prefer HD650 to the HD800 on the Teton.

        Not to worry I have 4 pairs of my favourites, 2 of my second, 1 of my third, 1 of my fourth and 2 of my fifth. Good chance my grandchildren will have a taste.

        Yeah I heard them in Japan, they make the 650 sound like a bass cannon. I didn't enjoy it too much.

        Negative tonality change seems to be the standard for aftermarket 650 pads.

        I keep the ember at full volume no attenuation and control volume from the dap. Running at around 70 low gain. And I can roll my neglected small tubes.

        There's also job security to think about too. If economic downturn hits, will the contract work still come in at the same pace? I'd bet not, as companies would likely tighten purse strings. I bet once you factor in healthcare, equity compensation, taxes, etc. that the management job likely is much less than half the pay cut.

        Think you also sold me with "life long dream."

        You sound like someone from our erp team. Do experience, because everyone in the manufacturing industry is going to erp (dynamics 365 for us) and are stuck on old legacy systems. Plus u can parlay it into another position when you get bored.
