        Yeah, but this is the detachable cable version.
        Nevertheless, I was excited when I got the email and disappointed when I saw the price.

        Those pads have small ear holes, uncomfortable as hell. Had to go with Brainwavz pads but lost some focus on the low end.

      Discovered that my car was vandalised last night; rear window shattered and I found bits of shot bottle(s) amongst the broken glass

        Bugger. I've had cars broken into for theft of radio etc, but the most depressing is when some idiot just wants to smash something.

        Getting the glass repaired isn't the biggest thing, but you'll be finding bits of glass for ages.

        A guy is driving to pick his children up at the schoolhouse. But some young hooligan in a Mustang suddenly weaves into his lane, and the poor fella crashes and ends up in the E.R. I was pretty aghast when he told me what'd happened. But then he said, "And I know that it was *God* who made me crash that car. Because, if it had happened just ten minutes later, my kids would both be dead right now."

        I don't have Spotify so I'm not totally clear on what you're doing but you can definitely play music via a Pi2AES from your phone or computer. I also use Qobuz and have been happy with it overall.

      Forte 3s arrived.. And are going back. They had been opened for a 2 hour demo and were sold me as new, but they've got scratches and dents.

        All helpful info! I know the Fortes are going to be a pretty wild departure for me from the BBC sound with the LS3/5A, but I think the character you describe will be perfect for my living room setup. Will be rare I really sit down in the sweet spot and just listen, more like wanting captivating background music. I am just going crazy trying to figure out what electronics I want to drive/feed them.

        How do you like the LS3/5A? I'd considered the LS6 for a while but then decided to go down the bigger woofer path.

        It looks like I'm out of luck finding a new pair of the Forte 3 in walnut here. The only options are that I switch to black ash (which im not a fan of) or wait for the Forte 4 (which is above my price range at the moment).

        @JayC I love the LS3/5A for my small room/nearfield setup. They are a bit picky about placement/stands/chain, but once you get them dialed in, nothing like them. In my small space I don't mind the bass rolloff below 70hz. LS6 was going to be my living room purchase, until new house had a big living room, so started thinking Fortes.

        @rlow, yes that's it for digital. Got some room for improvement with the MB, but I'll take it up in some time.
        Analog is clearaudio concept (with nag mp110) + Mani, but soon will be the top end of the Darlington labs line

        @JayC plan on purchasing after I get settled post-move (moving end of April). I actually decided to put in a Zu Dirty Weekend order as I have always been curious about the sound, and should be a nice little intro a more aggressive, high-efficiency sound, and have similar amp needs as the klipsch stuff. Will see if I decide to keep the Zu after 60 days for a different setup.

        2. Which of the Darlington products would most people be interested in loaning? MM3 / MM5 / MM6?

        I still stand by the smaller biodynamics as worthwhile options on a budget. Their party trick is sounding larger and more spacious then their cups would suggest. I use mine for handheld gaming but have not tried out of a PS4 controller. The affordable ones are the Creative Aurvana Live! and Massdrop x E-MU Purpleheart.

      Looking for a gaming headphone that I can also use when working at home for music. Didn't want to spend more than about 200€. Suggestions?

        Some downsides:
        -None of these have microphones.
        -The bigger Fostex cans have thick cables that can get in the way unless you custom cable them.
        -The smaller Purpleheart may be better suited to portable duties.

        The larger cans are vented closed backs that stage more like they are semi-open but the newer (current) Denons are closed. I have yet to hear the new Denons so I might be off base here.

      Bought a Bose 700 on Black Friday, mainly for the noise cancelation and work from home, etc. Very underwhelming sound, pretty decent NC

        I didn't bother switching between the two when I decided not to keep them, because I knew the Bose wouldn't stand a chance. I'm the type of person that would accept a bit of discomfort or extra effort to get good sound (I guess that's why I listen to Vinyl too). So I don't mind using my wired IEMs for work and having to take them out 20 times a day than keep the Boses

        Having said that, the Boses are comfortable, they cancel noise well, I like the touch controls and so on. If you've got the use case and need the NC/wireless I wouldn't tell you to turn them down (the Sony XM3 was just boomy and uncomfortable).

        They just didn't feel worth 240€.. for me.

        I have seen that movie more times than I can count. I discovered it during its initial tiny run in Los Angeles, where Tommy Wiseau was basically running it at random screening rooms for curious people. Despite the fact that at this point no one had heard about the movie, even then there was already a core audience who loved it for how bad it is. I quickly joined their ranks.
