alexa plays wfmu, sounds like crap, but she plays it. i guess i'll get a spot when they find some more to sell
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 7/28/16 9:19am Rev. Turnip Druid:

The shocking thing is how expensive utter crap headphones are. Borrowed some Sennheisers (retail: $110-150) and they're all hollow midrange, like hearing stuff through a 3-yard concrete tube. And yet I can't stand super-bass-enhancing 'phones, so this process is stupid big drama.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 7/28/16 9:21am Rev. Turnip Druid:

I understand "beats by dre" fall into that super-bass-enhancing category. Haven't had the pleasure....
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 7/28/16 9:22am Chris from DC:

Yes, just got new ones yesterday. They are crappy. This is disappointing.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 7/28/16 9:23am bobdoesthings:

@revTD - yeh I was semi-teasing about beats by dre.. I've heard there is like 1 or 2models which are alright if you'r into a more DJ/bassy/hiphop sound. but for the most part they are overpriced and gimmicky.. I found this one blog called "Inner Fidelity" where a guy does tons and tons of headphones reviews.. for an ignoramus like myself, I find it super helpful. however it's all that one dude's opinion.
Avatar Thu. 7/28/16 9:24am Cecile:

I just get those $20 Sonys. They work for me.
I also think you can't go wrong with those under $100 Koss headphones.
Avatar Thu. 7/28/16 9:25am Cecile:

but I'm not a professional musician and my hearing's a little f'd up through tinnitus and vertigo and other BS.
Avatar Thu. 7/28/16 9:26am Wild Neil:

I'm telling you, Sony makes good ones that are cheap. At least mine are...MDR-XD100's...paid $15 for them on Newegg, now they are no longer produced and go for like $60 on Amazon...or more....the driver is tilted to point right at my earhole....so L vs R really matters....It plays bass, mid and treble fairly equally....but I can hear people talking nearby so the cans do not totally isolate me, only drawback....I am super super picky and most headphones hurt me, but not these....get the full ear coverage ones, NOT buds or the mini ones, they suck.
Avatar Thu. 7/28/16 9:26am Chris M.:

buying headphones is super easy if you know how to read a frequency response graph
Avatar Thu. 7/28/16 9:27am Wild Neil:

@Chris M....should it be fairly flat then?
Avatar Thu. 7/28/16 9:27am Cecile:

Avatar Thu. 7/28/16 9:28am Chris M.:

@Wild Neil: yeah. but you have to look at the dropoffs as well and decide what you're willing to lose.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 7/28/16 9:29am bobdoesthings:

mehh, as allured as I am to get nice headphones..my $25 sennheisers at work with the crusty foam pads have been fine for years.. even though the right side had to be wrapped in a foot or two of gaffers tape.
Avatar Thu. 7/28/16 9:29am Wild Neil:

OH...so Chris are you saying a headphone is biased toward either bass or treble one must drop off? Or something else?
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 7/28/16 9:29am Rev. Turnip Druid:

Amazing how much a decent pair of headphones contributes to daily quality of life. World's best Flintstones Chewable Vitamin.™

that, plus this here stream thing.
Avatar Thu. 7/28/16 9:30am Chris M.:

@Wild Neil: no, i meant that no headphones are perfect. but you can get quality speakers in your headphones for much less than what you guys are talking about
Avatar Thu. 7/28/16 9:31am Cecile:

I like good enough headphones. Also, unless you are spending a fortune, nothing works on the bus. This is where minimalist music is key.

from what I understand the best sound from headphones come from open-ear headphones.. but those are the worst for public use because a lot of sound escapes.

My Porcupine-bashing is complex. I dig much of their Delirium-label era (Sky Moves Sideways is the far favorite) but (what I hear as) his over-production in later LPs does inspire fantasies of progger taxidermy...

Driving across the country from NY to Tucson in the dead of winter & surviving on instant coffee made in highway rest-stop bathrooms (add terrible tap-water, shake thermos vigorously) -- terrible at the time but I learned to love crap coffee for its combat-grade utility...

I would posit that part of the Neil Hamburger charm is how "un-gettable" it actually is. I find it preposterously funny.

I'm saving money...about $50 per month since coffee at Tim Hortons is $1.73 per cup...so I can afford horseback riding lessons.

I saw Neil Hamburger do a set between Laddio Bollocko and Trans Am in Minneapolis a long time ago. The MPLS crowd was too polite, so a couple of folks from the other bands had to sneak to the back of the crowd and heckle him loudly enough to get the crowd to boo him off the stage. It was uncomfortably fun.

i don't understand why people don't understand Neil Hamburger. i've been a fan since the late 90s. he's one of the funniest comedians ever.

Used to love expensive snob coffee -- still do, but have embraced the miracle of mid-grade stuff. We've got about 500 cans of Cafe du Monde; not great & not terrible, but gets the job done.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 7/28/16 10:54am Marcel M:

I used to drink crap coffee and not care. Then I got a machine at home and started messing around with various coffees. Now, its not so much that I can't drink bad coffee, I'm just so used to making it strong, that I can't stomach watery coffee. Even in fancy places with nice coffee, more than half the time, it tastes like water and I can't stand it. So unless there is a place nearby where I know they make it strong, I get black tea.
