I forgot all about headphones. That's another hobby I guess. Here is my modest rig....

DAC and amp



Modded Grado SR 325i



Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro



AKG K701



Fischer Audio FA-002w

That's pretty sweet Nubster. Which one do you like best? Why?

Sweet sweet audio equipment there Nubster. Those definitely walk all over my stuff, at least price-wise. I've auditioned the DT-990 and SR-325is and quite liked them. I would've purchased those two if I didn't restart my ADA tank hahahaha!

Do I see the bigger bowl pads on that SR-325? How do you like that mod?

My favorite is the Grado but after I modded it. I popped it apart, punched holes in the drivers, added dampening to the magnet, and removed this plastic ring that is in there to help hold the screen in place but isn't needed. I also de-buttoned them. The sound is more open, bass a little deeper, separation is better. Soundstage, not much improvement but they are Grados. The sound with them is just so clear and powerful. I wouldn't say transparent or true, again, they are Grado and there is a known Grado sound. But these things are a joy. The G-cushes are a great upgrade. They make the headphones more comfy and they open them up a little bit. I think there is a slight increase in bass with them too.

A very close second is the Fischers. They are a bargin headphone that just does it all very solidly. Bass is nice and punchy and goes deep. Soundstage is decent, not the best, but certain acceptable. Separation is ok. The sound is just really, really nice and they are very comfortable and being closed, they really isolate well.

I really like the DT 770 Pro. They have great soundstage and separation was good. These are a bass head's delight. They need an amp for sure. All of them do really even though some will argue the Grados do not. Trust me, they do.

The AKG are my least favorite. They just lacked life. They have great soundstage and are extremely comfortable but they just didn't do anything for me. They are pretty flat and no bass.

Other than fish?

Woodworking is probably my most expensive hobby.
Photography is another expensive one but it was also part of my work but I love shooting.
SCUBA/Snorkeling
Model Railroading
Books
Gardening, we also raise chickens at certain times.
Fishing, including building my own rods because I can't find what I like in the stores.

Hobbies is something you love doing. What I love doing for fun or paid work is transplanting a new heart in a car! Latest work.

Nice! Are you a fan of Harold Edgerton? All you photogs out there can thank him for perfecting strobes. He never considered himself an artist but just amazing, amazing stuff. Some of his more notable accomplishments (of which there are a lot)
Has had pieces hanging in the MOMA since it's first photographic exhibit.
Revolutionized sports photography.
Directed use of strobes for nighttime aerial recon photography, providing vital intel about troop movements in enemy territory. They are used in the nights immediately preceding the D-day invasion of Normandy, during the Battle of Monte Cassino, and in campaigns in the Far East.

Designed and operated systems that timed and fired US nuclear bomb tests. Edgerton and colleagues invented a camera (the Rapatronic) capable of photographing nuclear explosions from a distance of seven miles. These single-use cameras were able to snap a photo one ten-millionth of a second after detonation, with an exposure time of as little as ten nanoseconds, which is ten billionths of a second.



To put that in perspective, in roughly ten nanoseconds, light moves only ten feet!

Worked extensively with Jacques Cousteau. They explored and photographed sea floors from the Mediterranean to Lake Titicaca in the Andes Mountains.
Developed and used side-scan sonar to find sunken warships on the ocean floor.
Published many articles for National Geographic magazine. His first, "Hummingbirds in Action" contained high-speed photographs that illustrated for the first time the wing movement and flight patterns of Hummingbirds.
Won countless awards, patents, and the entire time creating mind-blowing images.
Sorry for the ramble, obviously I'm a big fan of his, and some of your photos remind me of his.

These threads are awesome.

I have a few other hobbies besides the planted tanks. Anyone who has seen my master thread knows there are lots of reptiles in my life. Love them all. That takes a fair bit if time up. I am also somewhat of a gamer. Mostly X-Box, but I like some of the older games for the computer. Command and Conquer, Zoo Tycoon, and the Sims to name a few. I am also big into Legos. Have been collecting since I was 3 and have a huge collection now. 27 years old, and I still build with them.

I also like building and fixing things. Anything from cars to houses and everything in between. Don't get to do that much though.
