        I first went to school in 1957. For quite a few years, Britain was still living in nostalgic cloud of the pink maps on the classroom walls. Pride in that empire, albeit gone. I was a lousy history student --- but I don't recall any mention of non-white royals. Even /Scottish/ was thought of as a bit foreign!

        I think they captured the vibe well. I wish they had kept the environmental music from Fallout 1 & 2. It’s got a little wokeness, but that’s unavoidable these days.

      Hi there! I'm Justin. Pretty new to the hobby. Reaching out cause you're from LA, and I'm in San Diego area, so wondering if you have any meet-ups in Socal? I would love to connect with some of y'all and get a chance to hear some gear without wasting so much $ on the buy and sell (I've already dug myself a nice money pit and I haven't even been into this for a year)

        EWG generally does good work. Yeah, it tends to have much more conservative thresholds than government agencies (or, of course, the chemical industry). But if you’d prefer to err on the side of caution, it’s not a bad source, especially because the number of consumer publications doing lab testing is dwindling.

        I've been in the headphone/amp hobby for almost 20 years. I started with a Headroom Total Bithead and a DT880 and slowly worked my way up to TOTL over time. I have found a measure of satisfice with my current gear, but I know I would not have achieved this without the journey through mid-fi and endless tweaking.

        In other words, the reason I'm satisfied with the Phonitor X and Kenzie Ovation for ZMF headphones is because this gear synergizes and best meets my weirdsies regarding audio.

        I guess as I’m also curious as to why the hybrid cable is desired for the HD800? I would think, in a vacuum, that an all-copper cable would be a better match for that headphone?

        I'm a bit of a purist on the no adapters thing. I still have the stock 1/4 cable too and I actually have a Audiophile Ninja XLR HD800 cable that I'm using but I can hear the difference been the Senn $300 cable and it (highs are rolled) I appreciate it though! And yes, the Senn cables fall apart after 10 years.

        Herbie's are legit in that they are meant to compete with other "high end" feet X times their price via a proprietary silicone blend, but whether that makes enough of an audible difference to justify price is gonna be a personal judgement call, I think. Diversitech pads are fine too, IME.
