1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    There's a burn in period, so you can't base the sound quality on a new pair. /done.

    All headphones/speakers have a burn in period, they will sound better after that.

    I'd never wear cps or anything while traveling abroad, nike frees all day. Also never understood the point of trying to cram a long itinerary in on a trip which is stressful and when I'm on vacation the last thing I want to be is stressed. Not being on a schedule and doing fewer higher quality things makes far more sense.

    I mean, if you're flying to Europe 4x/year then sure... but if you're taking a 2 week trip and won't be back for some time, you want to see as much as you can.

    I, for one, fly to Paris for dinner on occasion so whatever.

    This is not an opinion, this is a fact from day one they hit stores years, and years ago. Like fashion, people buy it for the aesthetic, and because it's seen in countless hip hop/rap music videos. The difference however, is that the hardware quality is absolutely dreadful, and has never been anything to take seriously. The packaging of those head phones are better than the product it self.

    Severely cheap to make, expensive yet very appealing to the masses, lots of profit.

    Innerfidelity has some interesting articles (with measurements) on that subject

    @shoreman1782 Real talk: save your money. You won't be listening to music anytime soon. Spend your money on Netflix instead. They have streaming episodes of Sesame Street (both classic and contemporary) as well as Baby Genius.

    Its actually not stressful if you plan well. We always make sure to pack the day with things to do but also leave off enough time that if we miss something we can go another day. I try to make 1-2 days with very little planning so that things can waterfall over into them in case we miss anything or want to come back somewhere a 2nd time. So far this strategy has not failed. Its just having good foresight and some logistics. Also you can buy a data card for a cell phone in most countries and have internet access that will help you plan for things better.

    I, for one, love waterfalls. Negative ions combat stress.

    As do caipirinhas

    Yeah. Apple bought them to enter the proprietary headphone market. Just watch. They'll switch out their headphone jack in the next few models. They already have a patent.

    In the few-hundred-dollar range, I like the Big Jambox by Jawbone.
