Sometimes I wish I could ask youtube "What did I say?!" Thier comment filter AI is insane. Or it hates me specifically. Sep 16, 2021 at 10:48 AM

      First hour with LCD2C was confusing. Tone is super-weird. I also haven't taken them off in 3 hours. I think I actually like em.

        @Hands has some excellent measurements on the improvements the OEM Vegan Pads bring, amp pairing is important but I feel that the PADs are even more worthwhile

        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

        It's a lot better than before thanks to the antibiotics - not much pain now, though my ears will apparently still ring louder for quite a while after loud noises. Shouldn't have cheated with the music last night! Still gotta let it heal.

        I hate tube sellers. I said it before and I'll say it again, out of the hundreds of tubes I've tested roughly 30% were good as advertised.

        I wouldn't be surprised. I think if I was sniffing out rare, expensive tubes I'd need to invest in a tester. Though for less expensive ones backed by return policy, I'm not quite as concerned. The chances are a lot slimmer that some rare, expensive tube will be good, just by those things.

        I never knew it could be that bad, though. But like you said, without testing equipment, I wouldn't. Something I'd consider if I was planning on hunting tubes regularly.

        I've ALWAYS had it though. I vaguely remember being around 4 and telling my parents I could "hear the quiet" at nap time, which I'm sure was really confusing for them, haha. I think back then I thought the ringing was an actual sound in the room.

        I can hear blood flow when it's quiet, basically the sea shell effect but lower volume. Also have some allergies to soja and milk which causes fluid buildup in my sinuses that mess with my hearing. Causing ringing.

        For me, it's steady high-pitched noise, like if you did a high pass on white noise or something. Mostly I don't notice it, but when I do latch on, it's there for days. Surely some damage involved (can think of too many events LOL,) but it's hard to say since it's always been there. Can't remember a time when sleeping in silence was ever possible.

      One day I will learn to stop being a splitter schlub and just buy a real preamp. What I really want is a reasonable DAC with 2 SE outputs.

        Do you use Modi Multibit currently? Save your pennies for a used Gungnir Multibit man. It’s a kick ass upgrade, although some say the SE outs are not the best, I think it’s over exaggerated, especially if the rest of your rig isn’t insanely resolving.

        I do. That one was an impulse b-stock grab, just to sample the Schiit MB sound. I really like it in spite of not being amazing on the technicalities, so Gungnir Multibit's not off the table. Got an SW51+ coming that I anticipate I'll be sticking with amp-wise, and the next look was going to be DAC/preamp. And then hopefully be happy for another coupla years. Appreciate the recc

        My most trusted people wear transceivers at all times in case I go too far and "The Portal" opens up again. The transceivers have the power to teleport them over, to help me close it. See, every time it opens, resonant beings come out, and tend to soupify people's brains when they pass through. Turns out forcing 100khz brainwave modulation is bad for people.

        Can't exactly put a sign out for that, yanno!

        I wish more phones sounded like this one. Not only does it have a headphone jack, but they actually tried to make it sound really good! Even drives HD6xx admirably. First phone I haven't felt a need to strap a DAC/amp to.

        Sometimes it just is. Seemingly not a huge POI for the smartphone world, though. Often the 3.5mm comes right from the CPU package to a basic opamp.

        G8 has a ES9218P in it - on-chip clock AND amp. Superior to poorly implemented DAPs with discreet chips. And it really sounds as good as decent desktop stuff. $500 is better spent on this than a DAP. No decent phone should have bad sound with chips like that out there.

        Haha, it was. I was pissed! :P

        No, but actually the water wasn't nasty like that. It just had enough resistance that when the flapper stuck it ran over, so maybe 2% pisswater.

        The shitty job was replacing it, which I did myself. Oddball old toilet and the only parts available are shitty before you even install them. Insurance company may say it's fine, AFAIC it is cursed.

        Oh thank god it was downstairs.

        It was stressful, but I didn't lose much but the floors. Floor is not for keeping things in my house. 3am is just terrible timing.

        When I pulled everything out of the room and put it back in, I rearranged it and found the sweet spot. Though I'm willing to bet there's a perfect sweet spot under the toilet floor too. It would just make sense, and might be useful for difficult poops.

        I haven't been to Orlando in years... too much traffic and everything is expensive. "Real" Orlando is okay but it still stands.

        It may have something to do with the fact that every time I go I wind up on Intl Drive at some point...

        I've given up on thinking I'm ever ready for HVAC season. There just is no good time for it to go out haha

        That's Florida in a nutshell. Hell bent on growth. All of the coastal towns are being crowded by rich folks. Here, we've never had the infrastructure or layout, but they keep trying. WPB is a nightmare because of poorly planned growth.

        I really like rural north Florida... all of those quiet, pretty little nowhere towns out towards Ocala where land is still kinda cheap.
