        I was very wary of that one...I mean a comical imaginary friend/Hitler? There's a lot that can go wrong with that, but by all accounts they did a great job, so now it's on my must see list.

        comical imaginary friend/Hitler? Sounds weird.

        But Hitler can be a great subject for a musical: The Producers.

        @Thad E Ginathom definitely one of the weirder premises for a movie, but the comedy works imo

        I’m having a lot of fun with the Focal Elex and the SW51+. Great synergy from those two. The SW is a heck of an amp.

        Been really close to pulling the trigger for the Elex as I've read a few good things about how it pairs w/ the SW51+. Would def. appreciate more impressions on the combo @Phantaminum

        The SW51+ adds a little more weight to the Elex and doesn’t exacerbates any of the highs. I don’t hear it as bright with my gear. It also gives it nudge into the warmer side but not overwhelmingly warm. Imaging and instrument separation are great. The SW does microdynamics well and the Elex is strong in this area so. For the price it’s hard to beat for a dynamic headphone. Maybe an Asgard 3+Verum One?

        I ended up enjoying the one with max stuffing as it gives some boost to bass and weight to vocals otherwise it sounded to thin to me.

        I use the less-filtered nozzle. I found the max-stuffed one to be a bit dull for my taste. Having the choice is really cool though.

        @Mithrandir41 I'm beginning to think it's just that the shoutbox function (esp when posting directly on someone's profile) is easily mistaken for private conversations by some for whatever reason, given how often this seems to happen. Maybe I'm being too nice but at the same time, shoutbox is pure noise anyway, otherwise I'd be less active on here :P

        The seeing sex scenes with family thing happened with me a few times too many. Cringe.

        The simple premise is what made me lose interest, haha. Then again, probably should've given it a chance since I loved A Place Further than the Universe, which also has a pretty simple premise. Alrighty, giving it a shot when I can.

        @pure5152 basically everyone gets turned into stone one day and the modern world reverts back to Stone Age/nature. After many many years later, protagonist and few others wake up from it and tries to advance the world back with scientific knowledge. (obviously more to it than this, but didn't want to spoil much)

        I cannot forgive Sennheiser for discontinuing this headphone. Few headphones convey the low end as well as these. Also quite easy to maintain. Get your spare parts and you are good for a long time...

        Thomann for instance. Also directly from Sennheiser. Cables are not difficult but foams and ear pads are very important. Good thing the HD250 II Linear was made for daily use in broadcasting so it is quite durable.
