    OddballMV got a reaction from The_Vaccine in Non gaming H processor Laptop?   
    UK yeah, didn't know Newegg did the UK, few options there but they seem a little more than Laptops Direct. I guess I'll have to wait for Black Friday and see what's on offer. 10th Gen seems to be going even further down the U route so looks like no joy there.

    OddballMV got a reaction from Askew in Tek Syndicate Audio Myths with @MayflowerElectronics   
    I think you can see how that particular test was performed, it was a simple Logan looking away and Tyler A/B-ing the tracks. As I understood it though, that little test was purely to get Logan's opinion on the matter as he likely has never done a proper blind test.. The actual statement from Tyler appeared to have nothing to do with that test, it likely came from his own knowledge from studying at college and the extensive research that has been linked to in this thread already.

    Isn't this a bit like saying you don't believe the theory of relativity because you haven't done a test on it yourself. You can take other people's evidence as fact surely?

    If it means anything I have three separate qualifications in electronic engineering, are all out dated 20 year old graduate certificates.  Other than that I have 30 years experience assembling amplifiers, designing and installing theaters, P.A systems as well as HT audio calibration plus consultation and sound engineering for live events.  Even with all this, when people don't like what I am saying they just dismiss me right out of hand.  I can tell you first hand that any bit of paper or personal experience you have means absolutely nothing if the person you are talking to disagrees with what you are saying.

    Most people go for the Sony 7506 or V6 because they are very neutral. About £70 usually.

    $350 is a flat out lie. The Laredo is $99 and the Silverado is $199 on CHC's website. Love my Silverado.

    taste is not something that you can attribute numbers to across a stretch of people.
     
    I may like coke 30% more over pepsi but does that mean you do as well? I prefer apple pie 10% over pumpkin but does everyone?
     
    also tastes vary over time. 2 months ago I favored my dt770 20% over my ath M50 but today that number is in the opposite direction
     
     
    also..... how the fuck did I just attribute a %based number on something as abstract as taste?

    OddballMV got a reaction from ShearMe in FiiO E17 + E09k   
    ShearMe's right, no real need for that much amplification for the HD598, you'd just have it set to 1 out of 10 the whole time. Maybe just stick with the E17 if it's reasonably priced down under  .

    OddballMV got a reaction from ShearMe in Looking for open headphones   
    I think people are exaggerating saying they are better than the HD800, more of a personal preference I expect because they are a warm, fun sounding headphone rather than the analytical HD800. The X1 are never really £270 it's just Amazon's DFS style sale of "was X now Y" but that is as low as I have seen them, was considering them myself.

    Beyers would probably be nice. The Philips X1 is on sale at the moment on Amazon - http://www.amazon.co.uk/Philips-Fidelio-X1-00-Headphones/dp/B008ZW2T7M/ref=sr_1_41?s=electronics-accessories&ie=UTF8&qid=1387893584&sr=1-41&keywords=headphones
    not really sure the Grado are going to be that good unless you go up to the higher end ones, which the EU don't really get a good deal on so you'll pay through the nose. Lots of choice really though at that price.

    just need a washed up rapper to hype their product and walk around with their product around their neck.
     
    Vanilla Ice comes to mind, perhaps MC Hammer?
