[01:05:31] <okeefe> Hmm, I need new earbuds.
[01:05:45] <okeefe> thewirecutter.com tells me Velodyne vPulse or Shure SE215.
[01:05:58] <okeefe> Looking at a price range around $100.
[01:07:45] <okeefe> Must: have sound isolation. Desirable: straight jack (not L-bend), apple clicky cord thing with volume/play/pause/mic.
[01:08:05] <okeefe> Those two I mentioned have an L jack. :(
[01:08:14] <okeefe> Time to forum-dive!
[01:27:43] <Coldguy> hi
[01:27:56] <okeefe> Yay, so it's not just me talking to myself.
[01:27:59] <Coldguy> noooooooooooooooooooo
[01:28:13] <Coldguy> i thought no one was here :P
[01:28:28] <Coldguy> how goes it
[01:29:01] <okeefe> Pretty good. Got all the groceries I need for the holidays; don't need to leave the house.
[01:31:40] <Coldguy> i got water
[01:31:44] <Coldguy> i was thirsty
[01:33:47] <Coldguy> now watching football
[01:34:16] <okeefe> Reading about earbuds, and the ancient forum thread about 'em.
[01:34:43] <Coldguy> ah those custom molded ones
[01:35:32] <okeefe> I'm betting anything custom is out of my price range. Sound isolation used to be more important when I took the subway frequently. I might be fine with a decent but cheap pair for a bit. Think I might try them for a few weeks.
[01:38:18] <Coldguy> well i got a new phone
[01:38:26] <Coldguy> that was my splurge
[01:38:36] <Coldguy> htc evo v for virgin moble
[01:40:51] <okeefe> A new laptop was my splurge. The iPhone 5 is pretty nice. The earphones the come with aren't very good. Too bassy for me.
[01:55:05] <Coldguy> yy ive heard that
[01:55:27] <okeefe> I like bass, but not when is shouldn't be there.
[01:58:57] <okeefe> Holy smokes. http://www.head-fi.org
[01:59:24] <okeefe> 107 reviews by the same person.
[02:02:23] <Coldguy> O.o

[02:18:45] <Coldguy> holy crap
[02:18:57] <Coldguy> seahawks
[02:19:45] <Coldguy> oh pro tip: get this http://www.kickstarter.com
[02:32:40] <okeefe> I'm into video game soundtracks, but only for games I've played.
[02:33:01] <okeefe> Apparently headphone "burn-in" is a real thing?
[02:39:08] <Coldguy> rewally?
[02:39:18] <Coldguy> also I know most of the artists to be featured
[02:39:25] <Coldguy> BUY IT AND THANK ME LATER
[02:39:40] <Coldguy> Japan chip is so unique there needs to be more coverage
[02:50:46] <okeefe> I bought these a couple months ago on a whim. Trying them out now, they do seem pretty great. Isolation could be better. I did swap out the tips this time around. http://thewirecutter.com -> Monoprice 8320 Earphones
[02:51:02] <Coldguy> opk
