Finally had some time to update my blog, mostly trying to comply with the new European Union's privacy laws, the disclaimer is now better and more visible across the blog. I removed the obligation of having to insert an email address on both the contact page and commentary section. It will give me more work with... Continue Reading →
I love backpacks, messenger bags, and bags in general. I admit that as a prepper I have a thing for bags, it comes with the territory. Before I got sick, I was using a Decathlon Tribord watertight backpack, for harsh Winters it's by far the best backpack I ever had. Sure it's not so nice... Continue Reading →
I must admit I was charmed by the KZ ZS6 when I started using the Senfer XBA 6in1, the ZS6 has deep bass and aggressive highs, all that I love in a good earphone. Yes, it's no surprise by now you should know I like treble cannons. Then the XBAs arrived on a little yellow... Continue Reading →
As usual Hyp0xia as a no bullshit approach to a controversial aspect of the audiophile hobby, I subscribe all that he wrote on his article.
I build some of my cables but for all the rest his advice should suffice.
Stereotypes exist because they’re true for a substantial proportion of the group about whom they are generalizing. The stereotype about audiophiles is that they’re people who spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars on cables because they delude themselves into believing they hear a difference. The word audiophile is so polluted with stereotypes that I prefer not to identify as one. There are, of course, plenty of audio enthusiasts who don’t subscribe to that nonsense. I, for one, have never claimed to hear a difference between cables, but I still care about cables as I care about any aspect of my signal flow.
I won’t just buy the cheapest cable I can find. I want my cables to demonstrate a solid build quality. They need to be aesthetically pleasing, too. Ultimately, it all boils down to bang for your buck. I have always been a bang-for-your-buck guy, even when I…

I started this last April with a mighty flu, which left behind a massive problem for my lungs. You see I'm not yet 40 thus in my mind I still think I'll get better on my own without going to a doctor. Big mistake and I paid for it big time! After more than a week... Continue Reading →
After I wrote my "Why I don't like Head-Fi" rant I went down memory lane and visited some HeadWize articles, by chance I also learned that anyone who buys the domain can request the deletion of HeadWize to the WaybackMachine! That's a scary idea and I know some people who would love to erase history as... Continue Reading →
Yep! I really don't like Head-Fi! Some of you might have noticed that I don't link or mention much the so-called biggest headphone related community in the world. There are some reasons for that and I will explain them next. You see, before Head-Fi there was HeadWize.com the first true hub of headphone enthusiasts in the... Continue Reading →
Looking at my blog statistics I noticed some visits on my now old and very dead Cmoy project. Out of respect for the people who are visiting I wanna give an update on my electronics projects. Since I built that Cmoy headphone amplifier and crossfeed my life changed quite a bit, I don't have the... Continue Reading →
After reading an article by Mr. Brent Butterworth called "A crisis in headphone measurement?" I was not a happy headphone enthusiast. I have a great respect for the gentleman but that doesn't really matter because I find his "attack" on measurements made by enthusiasts a bit low and disheartening. Sure his article is for a...

Before Christmas, we bought a Barmat "Torre" wood stove because my house doesn't have central heating and during the winter we had to use electric oil heaters. My old house is cold and the "use more clothes" bullshit doesn't really work when you have 3 kids playing and running around, so we decided that burning wood... Continue Reading →
My blog is an important part of my life, thus I started this year upgrading my WordPress.com plan to a premium one and "redesigning" my little space on the internet. Until now I'm happy with the changes, even if I still need to improve my photographic skills. I don't have any monetary return from my... Continue Reading →
I didn't want to buy the official "wireless upgrade module" which KZ sells for their ZS5/6 and other compatible IEMs (There I said it! ). Anyway, a LOT of people were asking about the module sound quality and without hearing one I couldn't actually help them out. I'm totally against giving advice on gear I never heard....

I really took my time hearing the ZS6, mostly because this model was and still is surrounded by audiophile hype just like its predecessor the ZS5. Don't get me wrong, the first generation ZS5 was amazing for the price, even if a reviewer did made a drama around it. I was not really impressed when... Continue Reading →
A fair review on the Beyerdynamic A20 headphone amplifier!
I don’t often reblog articles on my blog but this one is so well written that I’ll share it.
Hey! I’m a Beyerdynamic fanboy, so I’m biased! 🙂
I remember a customer from very early on in my 3.5-year career working in the build your own PC department at Micro Center who insisted that he had to have an AMD video card because his computer has an AMD CPU. When I explained to him that this was inaccurate, he told me another sales associate had said otherwise. “He was wrong,” I said flatly. It went on like this for some time until I told him that it really didn’t matter to me whether he bought an AMD video card or an Nvidia video card and it was true: I couldn’t possibly have cared less. I remember it clearly because it was one of countless interactions to come in which the customer would question my expertise, which always came as a slap in the face because I prided myself as a guru. When I went home for the day…

When I first started my blog my main idea was to improve my written English and also share some of my opinions, but since then my blogging goals changed a bit. So now I'll write about the current state of the blog and also some things to come. One of the most visited pages on... Continue Reading →
