I don't know but I love their service. Tidal "Master-quality" from my computer to my little DAC to my headphones is bliss.

I'd fully cancel my Spotify Premium subscription if it weren't for the ease of sharing music with others

That's exactly why i gave up Tidal.

For my laptop. It's a modest little Fiio thing. A Q3 I think. And that goes to my Sennheiser HD600s. That's how I do most of my music listening these days

I love them but they're open back so they're strictly for home use

I am the lowest tier of audiophile possible, but I like this stuff too.

Also, this reminds me, I want everyone here to check out my new favorite YouTube channel, this guy is great:

For a while when you Googled the name of these headphones, this picture of me would appear:

Turns out the photo (which I took for my old blog) ended up in some audiophile message board, and was being used in a bunch of random places (including a Romanian news article about teenagers suffering hearing loss from loud headphones)

That's a great photo and it should be shared!

Did you move on from those headphones then? Any particular reason?

No I still have them! I just need to get a replacement cable so they're gathering dust in my closet. But they're great

I haven't used mine in awhile. I ended up getting a paire of the Bose QC 45. Ive been traveling a lot over the past year and i got real tired of open back headphones on the plane. Along with that seemingly 10' cord.....

Wont do ear buds....

At home i dont really use headphones....

So, bluetooth noise cancelling headphones it is.

The last CD I bought in myabe the last 8-10 years was Fear Inoculum and that's only because it's the only format it came out in

this is the 2nd time in about a week I've come on this wonderful website to post something, and you, specifically, beat me to it.

i'm not even mad about it. i think it's wild.

Well, kind of.

He didn't acknowledge his error (that Swift doesn't write her own songs) and instead shifted responsibility to 'clickbait' journalism.
