• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

A flat response reference speaker (or headphone) should have extended bass, meaning that it's capable of accurately reproducing bass down to let's say at least 30hz but ideally down to even 20hz, at least with some response. The thing to keep in mind is that deep bass is felt more than heard. I do personally prefer a flat or reference style headphone myself even though I listed to a wide range of music. It's kind of an acquired taste, I guess, because as you said the midrange is relatively more pronounced than what most people are accustomed to.

I've only ever listened to one pair of audio technica headphones and did not care for them. It may be that the model you tried were just not good. Or it may be that you prefer more of a V shaped response profile where the bass and treble are tuned to have more presence than they otherwise would in a flat response speaker. Theres absolutely nothing wrong with that. Listen to what you enjoy not what others tell you that you should like (kind of like wine).
Thanks. Those headphones are long gone, and I don't remember how far down they went, but for the purpose I bought them (audio recording monitoring) it didn't matter too much. I just recall that when I tried them with music, I immediately thought, "Yuck!"

I've gone from mainly listening to pop, and moved on to jazz, new age classical, and classical (yeah... getting old) but I think I still prefer a shallow V.

Anyway, now back to your regularly scheduled programming.


I have laid off on new purchases for a while, so haven't been posting too many photos.
But just to share some shoe p0rn, I wore these Florsheim by John McHales yesterday. My first pair of LWBs and still one of my favorites. Have a great weekend ahead!

I have an ettiquet question for you all.

I am attending a funeral this weekend. Of all the suits I have, one is black pinstripe and it’s way too big. I don’t have a solid black suit.

Is a black suit really a requirement? I think that very dark charcoal is acceptable. Right?

Trying to choose footwear. I think the simple choice is black cap toe. I wish I could wear wingtips because the departed shared my love of heavy vintage wingtips. But, a cap toe is probably more proper.
Black suit not a requirement at all. Look nice. That’s easy for you, I’m sure. That shows respect.

PM sent to him, referencing you. Shell is in the air.
Some Florsheim 9.5Ds can work for me. One of us Canucks should take them.

Anyone else notice shoes in movies/tv now?

I'm watching season one of Mindhunter. In episode 4 they park in a dump and get out into puddles. Black longwings!

Look closely - they're not actually longwings.

They're shortwings. They have a second set of "wings" attached to the vamp and running down behind the heel.
