Default roflmao! Senn IE7 review....

Am I the only one who finds this review amusing? Especially their first choice for a test DAP?

You should be happy that they did not use a desktop amplifier with that DAP for a portable gear review .

Sound

For test purposes, the standard instruments and methodology i.e. the Hifiman HM-801 player, Prime Test CD1 record collection, as well as some random tracks were used. No earphone modifications were made and only the standard tips were considered. The warming up period was about one hundred hours.


I'm sorry, but once I read this I couldn't read the article any longer - FAIL!!!

This is a reviewer you should trust. Gets my seal of approval.

Also, the Hifiman displaying "Turbo Lover" by Judas Priest (an awful case of bad 1980ies hot-treble mastering, due to too much coke in the brain of the mixing/mastering engineer), is rather amusing.

I think lestatar should buy a HiFiMAN and IE7's and do a counterpoint review.

Would that make up for the treble roll-off of the ancient DAC?

Ummm, guys...I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for me to pick up a HyFyMan if I were you :P

dfkt, IMO Turbo Lover is one of Priest's most embarrassing and horrid songs [but it did have a catchy chorus].... lol

Hey, I love that track - Rob Halford really didn't have to come out of the closet. But the mixing is beyond good and evil...

I see Halford's outfit there, and suddenly I know what lestatar will wear if he goes to any Halloween parties.

Alright, since its MY thread, let's continue to derail it, especially since that moron with the HyFyMan is, well, a moron...lol Though possibly with decent musical tastes...

Priest was one of my early faves. Halford's voice remains, for me, one of the very best in all of metal. Unleashed In The East remains one of the best live albums ever IMO [right up there with Strangers In The Night, Exit...Stage Left, etc...]

The early Priest stuff is filled with absolute classics. Even British Steel, their most commercially successful album [and generally most reviled by dedicated fans] has some good tunes.

M&M [yes, that IS gonna stick...], so nice to see your music tastes are improving. You too TDS [though the Muse thing puts you still on the line...]

rofl - o man, i am gonna get it

Lestatar, I'm just afraid your true musical tastes are being hidden just below the surface, and I'm starting to worry that on the next B&H trip you'll show up rocking assless chaps. At least warn me you'll be doing a YMCA type move!

And BTW, Muse is quite good, and made 1 mistake. I'd recommend leaving them alone, as it seems you got a lot more "it's raining men" type stuff than most of us. I mean, it's ok to be secure in your manhood, but this is starting to mean so much more.
