Re: Nur Ein XII - Round One

This round was really hard to rank. If you were in the top, you were just as enjoyed as all the top. And if you weren't in the top, you were no less enjoyed than anyone in the lower-half. 73 Keep It Beautiful - Nice. For a bit of an elevator genre, it still stands out. As always, performed deft-full...

Re: The New Ugly - a Nur Ein review podcast

I just started listening and I immediately wanted to make my own Nur Ein review podcast, just to invalidate your opening line "the only podcast where you'll hear Nur Ein reviews". :P It's almost as much work as recording a short song. Go for it. :P Is Skyping in some contestants something...

I put up the songs. Still working on HTTPS issue, but if you use Sam's workaround it'll be fine.

The New Ugly - a Nur Ein review podcast

I thought it would be fun to try making a podcast around Nur Ein. I'm going to try to get more in-sync with the rounds.

Clearly if I can review songs with my friend a few beers in, your criticism is welcome.

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round One

I don't have them - Niv does. But if Niv uses the workaround to upload them to the site, I will prioritize getting them listenable. I'm presuming he might not have time at work so it all might just work itself out by the time he does...

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round One

For some background, the site is hosted at dreamhost and they support free Let's Encrypt certificates automatically, but it's a new feature and they're occasionally running into bugs. I put in a support ticket and it'll hopefully be worked out by EOD- otherwise I might have to pull HTTPS from the co...

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Zero

I'm not here to make friends. I'm here to be America's Next Top Model. These reviews are in mixed up order. You'll never know how I voted. 73 Keep it Beautiful - Great pop track by one of the masters. I feel it's a little cliche, but you added in some unique elements here and there - some chord cho...

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round One

Speaking as a judge, I will be more than ecstatic to hear a tasteful instrumental or vocal counter-melody used to accentuate your song. :)

Re: Recommendation for 'pretty' noise isolating headphones?

True - I'm still a little skeptical of bt quality. I was thinking vocal recording, cuz that's when I move around the most and cause cables to get tangled every which way. I nudge my vox around so much that a tiny delay wouldn't impact anything. For everything else I'd use open-ear headphones or moni...

Re: Recommendation for 'pretty' noise isolating headphones?

I found some tutorials that show opening up the ear, removing something that stops normal connectors, and then getting a 2.5->3.5mm connector. So, a little D-I-Y but not prohibitively so. With the right bluetooth receiver, these headphones might be the best option for high quality bluetooth audio.

Re: Recommendation for 'pretty' noise isolating headphones?

Cool! Just checking because the picture on Amazon looks like the ends of the cord might be different sizes. I've had a lot of success using bluetooth receivers in my car (lol old technology - it's like the modern equivalent of cassette-CD conversion). Seems like maybe my studio needs to be upgraded ...

Re: Recommendation for 'pretty' noise isolating headphones?

Is that input jack 1/8"? Could I put a bluetooth receiver dongle on it and never deal with cords again?

Probly not. I think you're hallucinating colors on those black headphones. ;)

Joking aside - I kind of want to keep the white ATH-M50x for myself and buy flowers instead. Those things are sexxy.

Re: Recommendation for 'pretty' noise isolating headphones?

Thanks fluffy! I checked out the specs and decided to go with them.

It's funny - despite the whole rise in Beats popularity, it doesn't seem like studio-quality headphones come in any varieties other than black.

Recommendation for 'pretty' noise isolating headphones?

My wife's birthday is coming up. She likes the Sennheiser 280 pro (which I think a lot of people around here have used) but she wants something... with color.

Any recs for something in that price range with similar noise blocking ability and sound quality?
