solrighal: Are you guys talking about those ridiculous new Senn's? And Derek, TCFS May 21, 2015 14:56:25 GMT *
Rabbit: No, not the closed ones, Gordon. The HD800 costs somewhere in the region of £1,100 and has a very strong treble. Supposed to be one of the most revealing dynamic driver type headphones. I've never heard one. May 21, 2015 17:58:44 GMT
Rabbit: i guess flavour of the month is the beta for hifiman he1000. Better than deep fried Mars bars. May 21, 2015 17:59:34 GMT
solrighal: Ah, I thought it was the ugly Senn's. The HD 800 is a nice chassis. If only they'd plug some 650 drivers in there I'd be all over it. As you say though, too many complain of harshness. May 21, 2015 18:47:54 GMT
ronzo56: Beta he1000 it is. Sounds promising but $$$. I think I am the only person who likes their stock HD800's. Strange as I am sensitive to the DT-880 treble. In fact I sent mine back for a refund. May 22, 2015 1:31:25 GMT
solrighal: It's Friday! Only one sleep until the joy that is Eurovision! :) May 22, 2015 14:24:23 GMT
ronzo56: Still Friday night over here. Only one sleep until....uh the joy of waking up and going into work on your day off. :) May 23, 2015 5:45:01 GMT
ronzo56: Gordon- 600 cable channels here and not one shows Eurovision. You have to stream it online. Do we really need a channel that sells estate jewelry 24/7? May 23, 2015 10:54:25 GMT
solrighal: Lol, we have those channels here too. Anyway, trust me, you might not want Eurovision. We'll be watching it though just for the fun of laughing at others. May 23, 2015 18:01:01 GMT
ronzo56: That's what I read over here. I thought I sensed a hint of sarcasm in your post. :) But I also have read some big stars got there start on it. Yeah the Jewelry Channel like in Bridgette Jones's Diary; her Mum was on it! LOL. May 23, 2015 18:40:21 GMT
ronzo56: OK Gordon, I am watching it live on YouTube. A spectacle it is. The crowd is really into it. Did I see a beard and a dress? May 23, 2015 19:10:19 GMT *
ronzo56: Is anyone else watching Eurovision? First time for me. Um.....? May 23, 2015 19:52:24 GMT
oldson: i would rather file down my teeth!!!!!! May 23, 2015 19:59:13 GMT
ronzo56: I can see why. You have to be drinking strong ale or something to get through it. I had to take a break. It"s like the AKG K701. Alright for a few songs and then you have to stop. :) May 23, 2015 20:27:47 GMT
ronzo56: It's like American Idol or The Voice on huge amounts of steroid drugs! (rofl) May 23, 2015 20:29:23 GMT
ronzo56: The drag queen with the beard flying through the air! :o Last years winner. Done. May 23, 2015 20:48:03 GMT *
solrighal: It was even worse this year. The music's always crap but usually you get a couple of novelty acts that at least provide a laugh. Tonight they were all serious. May 24, 2015 2:26:17 GMT
solrighal: I often wonder if these people have friends because surely a good friend would point out how shite they really are. May 24, 2015 2:27:05 GMT
ronzo56: This year was worse than last? With the bearded lady as the winner? Although I have to say she has a gocd voice. But having her fllyithrough the air at the start was different. Really different. I thought some of the serious acts seemed novelty. May 24, 2015 3:55:14 GMT
ronzo56: Like the very large women with the group of backup singers. May 24, 2015 3:55:50 GMT
