Dang, one of the EH 6922's that came with my LP is already failing. For once I'm glad that the seller threw in a coupla rando Russian NOS! Jun 6, 2021

      Never really thought about it... but "I did my good deed for the day." isn't the best mindset to have. Are you then bad the rest of the day?

        I was a Christian for half of my life. I had to stop counting sins and the good deeds. You will end up a worrying to death or becoming an arrogant saint. Take care of the people you care about, avoid being an asshole.

        What even is "a good deed"? No, are the people you care about happy and you can have a good/interesting conversation? If the answer is yes, good job.

        Always thought of it as a reminder to be slightly better than a pass to be an arschloch save for one brilliant instance ever 24h or so, but I suppose there are those that might interpret it that way?

        But yeah, call me an optimist but I'd much rather see it as a persistent reminder to actively seek to do nice things. The way it's phrased there's a lot of leeway for reading.

        Haha, they've got us by the balls. I'll never get why, though. All most of them need to do is figure out how to start listening to people instead of coming up with fancy ways to say "Maybe later (/never.)" while making more frustrating changes.

        I recall Two Broke Watch Snobs having one or more podcasts about building a collection for $1000. For my money, I’d go with a Seiko Cocktail series, an Orion Hellcat, and a Casio Casioak. I think that would be right around $1000 and cover the tool, dive/sport, and dress watch categories.

        @fraggler I have two Expeditions, one chrono and one not, and the ticking is barely audible. I kind of find it satisfying. Can't really hear it down at my waist.

        I think the ticking was for syncing... military field watches and such.

        That's why they're my work watches. Though actually I think they can look really nice. Just really solid watches with bitchin and unique backlights that don't cost watch-head money to have a couple.

        @robot zombie, audiophilia stole the tone controls. You can't expect it to give full EQ now.

        But @PTS points out that, RME, coming from the semi-pro field, has no such sensitivities.

        Back when aromatherapy wasn't even a word, people experimented with stuff. Once, with flu and feeling very feverish, I put a few drops of essential oil of peppermint in the bath.

        You know why mint makes your mouth cold? Because it's actually a mild local anaesthetic. Yes: you can, I found, do that to your whole body. Not advisable. Especially if you're steaming feverish inside.

        Oh sure, a nice eucalyptus bath is fine. I just draw the line at directly and vigorously applying lathering mentholated goo on sensitive areas. And its not like it is subtle. Open up a bottle and 'feel the rush' in your nose.

        That's the other thing. They tend to be marketed as energizing more than soothing. For people who rub menthol on their nipples I guess.

        I occasionally wonder if the right answer is not to “optimize”/gamify every aspect of life? I mean, I’ve managed to live this long and only found a few “life hacks” as actually useful and not pedantic compulsive ways of organizing a task that only adds to the mental burden. A time saving way to do something better? Sign me up. A listicle of 19 items to make my CDO (see what I did there?) worse, nope.

      Man, major mixed feelings about LCD2C with Dekoni Velours. Better in so many ways. More balanced, but maybe that isn't quite what I wanted.

        @HotRatSalad I would expect more people to prefer the 2F, honestly wouldn't surprise me. The prominent dip is make or break. I personally don't find them overly dark. Cymbals almost sound a bit splashy to me. To me HD6xx's sound more rolled off on the upper extreme.

        I am all about the bass and midrange on them. They've got that over the 2F for me, though the 2F is generally the better balanced headphone.

        You should be able to order the slanted vegan pads direct from Audeze. You have to provide your serial number, but they are THE best pads for the LDD-2C IMO. Still retains killer bass, tames the top end 8k peak, and the slats give them a bit of space.

        I had mixed feelings about them too for a while, paired with my Jot 1 and Vali 2+. I almost ended up selling them after about a month.
        Then I read about people who pad rolled to the Dekoni Elite Velours, bought a set for myself and now I think I'll be keeping these.

        LCD-2C needs only two things...the vegan slanted pads to give them some space and tame that 8K peak, and a good amp with good power. Vali 2 was never enough - too congested. Lyr 3 was great, Liquid Carbon is what I use now, and Liquid Platinum is what I would use if I were a rich man.

        It really is better across the board. Extension is better, with more air. Maybe a touch less of that upper mid edge. Tone largely unchanged, just some clarity. And so much more comfy.

        Thanks yall. I think I'm lucky, my hearing seems fine aside from the crickets - just a painful lurch with any air pressure changes. Probably got it as a result of flipping my hair back in the shower and shooting water straight in.

        I was worried it would be middle or inner, where the damage tends to happen. All I can say now is when this clears I'm sure my headphone setup will be mindblowing. :D
