No, sadly enough, I don't have an amp. I was looking at some, and there are some that are upwards of $1,500! I find that the response curve is fairly flat, although it does curve off quite a bit when it comes to the low bass (like most headphones). But they are definitely the best sound makerrss I've ever owned.

Well, I got mine, as well as a pair of speakers, a tape deck, 2 broken turntables, and a pair of broken headphones, for a grand total of $7. Just keep an eye out for old stereo amps at garage sales... It's basically the same technology as it is now.

NEW LOUNGE

Oh, thank god, My shakes were getting really bad without this place.

BAND AUDITIONS
So my band was trying out new guitarists and this kid showed up and for 2 hours made tons of noise and was playing his guitar like a 40 inch wang. While we were going through the songs he just kept wanking and wanking on his guitar in the most terrible way... Thing of an elementary school kid with a brand new guitar learning to play nirvana by ear.

here is the email he sent me
finally an interesting concept i am down for..i play guitar..some keys.i live near mode.i am currently putting together some tracks and sounds for an independent film at phrygian studios.and down the road i could use a tight group of eclectic musicians...aside from that i love to jam.-matt-917-***-****(ps.if you need guitar im your guy!i handle rhythm and leadso dont bother inviting another axe player cus il chop his head off.not that i am not open to a challenge!...i just dont want leave a mess of blood for john to mop up..

Then after the practice i told him nicelyt that we are looking for a guitarist with a different style.
He FLIPS. Starts yelling about how he doesnt even like our band even though he offered to pay for the studio and asked if we could get another hour together in the room. Then Starts screaming about how we wasted his damn time. I LOLED HARD. Technically he wasted my damn time and money but anyway i basically told him that and he was really pissed. And i told him to fuck off.

THEN today on craigslist some asshole trumpet player preaches to me how my band cant have a horn player unless we pay them. and starts trolling me with emails saying fuck you fuckwad and such.

Seriously some musicians ego's are so fucking huge it makes me want to vomit.

yeah so thats what i have been up to lately.
And Chron i got a haircut finally.. ill be posting in the piccies thread soon.
Im off to AC for the night for some drinking and gambling... well im just gonna play the nickel slots.. ive never been in a casino before so it should be fun. AND MY ROOM HAS A HOTUB!!!!!
WOOT

Repost since I didn't get a response to this last time (sorry)

Yeah I've wondered about that. I have HD280Pros as well and I thought they sounded great through my laptop's headphone jack (though I can hear a bit of noise and interference) However, when I tried them with my iPod, they were utter shit lol.

sadly I have no money to buy an interface, headphone amp, etc...

so I guess I should rephrase: Are ipods really that shitty or is it because I don't have a headphone amp and the ipod's battery is too weak?

I think (don't shoot me if I'm wrong) that headphones (the big ones) just generally need a higher input voltage to get decent sound. The speakers in the headphones just need more power (which is voltage multiplied by current), and if the input voltage isn't high enough you won't get enough current either. So yeah, you prob. need an amp, which amplifies that voltage.

Headphones

I had a set of Phillips IR cordless headphones for a long time, but the hiss was diabolical. Got some Sennheiser HDR 120's (digital cordless) a year or so ago, and it's a hell of a difference. My only complaint with that model is the fact that the tuning dial and the volume dial are on the same earpiece, apart from that, great sound quality for cordless and not too bad for comfort when going to sleep listening to music (yes it's a bad habit but sometimes it helps me drift off)

Things are looking nice in here, I thought I'd offer congratulations to everyone and thank the mods and users that helped in putting it together. :) I never really posted in the old lounge but perhaps I could try something new and frequent this one? I'll give it a shot.

That IS true, but Sennheisers are a special case... They get a mad high resistance, so you don't need an amplifier.

So, might I ask, what type of iPod do you have? If it's a 4/5G, then the iPod should sound BETTER than the stock audio card, since they have epic D/A converters. Another model? Probably crap.

My E-MU 1212m has GREAT D/A and A/D converters. I hear absolute silence when I plug my cans in directly. However, my amp generates a bit of noise, but adds that "warmth" I like to hear :D

Well it's a 5th gen video, 30 GB (the first video one to come out I think) but here's a few things I noticed:

A: the bass level was lowered so I have to put a bass booster EQ just to get it to sound normal
B: I noticed the high frequencies were less clear, and reverb and echo etc seemed dampened. Basically overall it seemed kind of muddy and there wasn't enough crispness to the sound. (with or without the bass boost EQ)

The difference is NOT very noticeable but in certain extremely well produced songs it is definitely noticeable.

Also I have a macbook Pro, that has a pretty good soundcard right?

STAT POSTS

As you all know, the place to post your statwhoring is the Wi/Ht? level up! Lounge Forum. I will be harder on stat-postings that seemingly lead to no conversation, basically there should be NO talking about "lmao i gutz mah whip nao lmao!!!1" that stuff belong in the above linked thread! Why ? Is even the most harmless posts about lvl ups or similiar no good? - YES, they do NOT belong here. The thing is that those kinds of posts very often lead to spam posts, not to mention that they're spam alone.

^^^^^^^^^ Prime example. Totally pointless and effortless post right there. I'm leaving it as example, but expect similiar posts to get deleted, possibly with a ban slapped on it. It's not that I'm trying to ruin everyone's "fun", fact is that there IS no fun with that kind of stuff - and most of you all should have learned that by now, no? Feel free to follow up and comment this.

iPod D/A Converters

At 1/23/09 11:02 PM, gregaaron89 wrote: Well it's a 5th gen video, 30 GB (the first video one to come out I think) but here's a few things I noticed:

Well... I have that too. It's got a GREAT D/A converter, so that shouldn't be the problem. If you're hearing HD noise from the Mac card, then it's probably integrated and low quality.

In fact, the D/A converter is so good that it's used in many 1,000+ dollar CD players. There are even mods you can get to place a direct audio out into the bottom to avoid the shitty other components, which is probably where the issue stems from.

Also, make sure that the EQ on your Mac's card is off, or you might get a weird frequency response. Also, the iPod's EQ sucks... It causes clipping for me with my Sennheisers, and sounds really unnatural, in contrast to my amplifier's EQ that sounds warm and natural... Rockbox has a good EQ, if you feel like modding your iPod's firmware.

From this point on, anyone who breaks the rules will be banned, then shot, killed, brought back to life Lazarus-style, then raped by the woodland critters from south park. They shall then be banned once again, have all of their bones broken, then deployed to afghanistan with no weapons except for a plate of sausage. After getting killed again within seconds of arrival, their soul shall be banned, and then raped by the antichrist, who will then kill their soul. And this will all be videotaped and posted on youtube, where hormonal 12 year-olds will fap to it.

I believe that is sufficient.

Don't EVER speak like that again. It's one of the first things you learn NOT to do on the internet. It's one of those unspoken rules of somewhat-cultured internet forums that everyone is EXPECTED to know.

Decent beginner headphones, but nowhere near as decent as any of the ones we've been talking about. They have a VERY overemphasized bass response, they lack clarity in the highs, and generally muddy up the sound, making it nigh-impossible to mix on them.

However, the bass and lightness make them good DJing headphones... I keep a pair on my compy, plugged into the integrated card, for that purpose.

After listening to my Sennheisers, I can't imaging monitoring on anything like those old MDR-V150s. Also, if you're taking them to school or work, make sure to keep them VERY safe. Any bends in the headband can cause it to snap, which has happened MANY times to me. =\

At least they're better than my old headshits. I'll gladly take these over the ones I had previously.

Well I'm in trouble then, almost every single pair of headphones has had some ill-begotten fate so far. Hell, I already kinda broke these ones, although some intuitiveness on my part managed to repair the problem.
