Surprisingly quite content with the QC35ii. My priorities have changed a lot this year, and I think that's a good thing. Sep 30, 2019

      Received my one audio purchase for the year today. IER-Z1R. Ears are pleased. Surprisingly comfortable for how bulky it is. Back to lurking.

        Good to know. This sounds great. I love all of these versions.

        I think the cover is based on The Bangles version due to the similar intro.

      Now that I've made my self imposed one audio purchase for 2019 how do I stick to that for 11 1/2 months?

      Feels silly using an iEMatch w/ the nano iDSD BL that has the iEMatch 'high' setting built into one out, but 'ultra' makes a big diff for me

        I wasn't actually thinking about toggling the switch on the cable much, but I could. Would probably only have to if I went for the most meme worthy setup and plugged the iEMatch cable into the iEMatch headphone out which I did experiment with last night. Gets my IEMs into the 11 - 1 o'clock range on the volume pot. I think that gets the volume reduction to -36dB or so.

        So you'd basically have to flip on Turbo mode to get any decent volume out of it then, yeah? :P

        Kidding aside, I actually forgot that the new Nano BL had a dedicated IEMatch out, so that's egg on my face, haha. I do wonder whether there are any sonic differences between the direct out > external IEMatch and the built-in one, but that'd be Machina Dynamica Pebbles-level nervosa perhaps

        I think it could matter on some IEMs as I believe the iEMatch on the nano is <4ohm and -12dB. The iEMatch cable is listed is <2.5ohm and -12dB on 'high' and <1ohm and -24dB on 'ultra'. Very low ohm IEMs like the Andro and Solaris may have some fairly significant changes in sound.

        Primarily looking at art/prog rock, new wave, and synth pop I suppose. I don't necessarily think I'd enjoy life in that time more. Hard to say. I am so dependent on the internet and online interactions.

        Yeah, back then you probably had to “talk to people” - either IRL or over the phone. It was brutal!! ;-)

        Actually that is one “quality of life” aspect that I think is sorely missed nowadays.

        I actually miss that to some extent. When I was a kid I'd had to call my friend's home phone or walk over and ring the doorbell and potentially talk to their parents or siblings a bit depending on who answered. By the end the end of elementary school I think I was probably using AOL Instant Messenger and ICQ. Easy to get that direct line of communication.

      ADX5000 back home at last. Feels good. Spent the last 5-6 weeks with only IEMs.

        Looking into it a bit (there was extensive talk about this when the Utopia released) it looks like fears are misplaced and the amount of beryllium required to cause harm is more than the tiny amount you would find on a headphone driver. That is IF the driver would suddenly turn to dust and you'd inhale it or you fancied a snack and decided to eat the driver in the first place.

      Had a bender during rehab to complete my shift toward IEMs. Traded out a full sized for an IEM. Had to spend a few hundred. I apologize.

        Also, Acoustune IEMs have a very smooth and pleasant sound. Easily among my favorite IEMs along with the Andromeda. Definitely worth an audition if you ever get the chance!

      Got to try out the Vega, Andromeda, and Xelento via loaners. Ended up deciding I didn't need any of them. Andro easily the best that bunch.

      Time to start saving for a big move in a few years. Don't think I'll be making any more audio related purchases until after that.

      It’s been about 6 years, but I am making my return to the AD2000. Looking forward to revisiting an old favorite.
      1. Erikdayo
        Erikdayo
        Went this route due to my (surprising) HD800 comfort issues. Gap is much smaller than I make it out to be since I had the AD2000X from late 2012 - mid 2017. Purchased when it was released as an upgrade to the AD2000 though it wasn't really an improvement. Either way large portion of that time AD2000X was the golden years where I stopped thinking about trying new gear so often. I've just about reached that point again

      The top of my head is made of jello. Even finding the HD800 too uncomfortable to wear these days. Oh well. Saves me money.

        Ha yup, me too. Just sold a HD800 for the same reason. If the clamp were just a bit firmer it would help alleviate all the weight going to the thin headband pad, or maybe it's just me. No problem wearing heavy Audeze cans with a suspension strap for hours.

        Ah. that's another interesting point that could be a factor. The HD800 has basically zero clamp for me. From now on I do plan on sticking with only full suspension along with A-T wing system and ADX5000 style.

        I found the MrSpeakers AFC very very comfortable though not the most enjoyable sound. They are a bit heavier, but I am definitely interested in Audeze and HiFiMAN offerings.

        Now that I have the Elex where I want it I may be letting go of my LCD-2 rev2 pre-fazor. Shoot me a message if you're interested. I like it a good deal better than either the LCD-X or LCD-2 fazor
