So, here's the thing I did and I'm proud of!

I have a #blog, and I review and recommend #audiodrama on it.
I know it sounds like not much really, but it is somewhat important to me.
For the most of my life I was certain that I can't really get into audiobooks, or any other kind of #audiofiction, because, well, it was to hard for me to focus on etc.
But few years ago I discovered that it really is easier now for me to 'read stuff' on my #headphones, partially due to my PTSD. So I started listening to audiodrama because it helped me survive being in public spaces at first, but I got lots and lots of more than that!
I discovered a vibrant, beautiful, #queer, #divergent, colorful #community that gave me not only entertainment, but also knowledge, friendship, place to belong, sense of community and representation.

So I want to share it with others in the best way I know.
That's why I want to get introduce you to The #Shoutbox Blog!
I post #reviews, recommendations, gossip and exciting news about audio fiction world, and you are more than welcome to join the fun!

You will find it on or here at @blog

Hmm, anyone have experience with the Schitt Audio Modi + Magni stack? I picked one up cheap on FB marketplace because I was a fan of their Mani phono preamp but I’m kinda underwhelmed with it. Definitely doesn’t sound notably better than my audio interface (Clarett 2Pre) headphone amp - a bit more forward in the mids/high mids but with what sounds like reduced upper lows and a narrower stereo field. This sound familiar to anyone?

Your Autistic Life

I got a pair of Soundcore Life Q30 today.


Because my old pair of crappy headphones was too crappy. Sometimes someone comes up for a Dharma talk and either I cannot hear them, or I have to really strain to make out what they are saying. It is even worse when the HVAC in my apartment is running.

For the Dharma talk lastTuesday, I put my headphones on, but the HVAC came on and messed things up.

I'm hoping the Soundcore headphones will help. I've paired them with my HDTV. I can already notice a nice bass boost compared to my earbuds. (That was to be expected. Earbuds are really not good at replicating bass.)

I have some Jabra Elite 85h wireless noise-canceling #headphones which I bought a little over 4 years ago. They have not gotten heavy use (I only use them in the office and of course I wasn't in the office for over a year), but now they sometimes stop playing through one earpiece.

Is 4 years a typical life expectancy for such devices? Are Jabra headphones poor in this regard?

While I do like the fit and sound of these #Razer #headphones, I strongly detest the fact some vaguely disinterested woman's voice announces “Power On" when I power them on

Wow I wasn't expecting the AirPods Pro 2 improved sound quality to be so noticeable! The noise cancelation is also impressive. Plus hand-off to/from my Mac works really well and fast.

#Earphones aside though, when it comes to #headphones, if you're like me and value comfort perhaps even more than you value the audio quality (not to say the audio's bad, they're honestly super good to my ears but ymmv) - for your regular pair of headphones for use with your desktop or laptop (you can use with mobile too with an adapter if needed), I highly, HIGHLY recommend the #HyperX #CloudII.

I was recently gifted a pair of
#Bose #QC45 (hehe) which I have also been wanting purely for its comfort, but prior to that I have been using the Cloud II for I'd say ~5-6 years. I've tried many pairs of headphones around the same price range and even those that costs 2-3x more, but none compared to the Cloud II in terms of comfort. I actually once bought the #Sony #XM4 wireless headphones on sale, and I sold it back immediately after less than a week of using it bcos despite the 3x price increase (over Cloud II), that thing was awfully uncomfortable for long use and felt like a massive downgrade.

Now that I have the QC45, I'd say that it's definitely a massive upgrade in terms of comfort over the XM4, but the Cloud II is definitely just as comfortable if not more comfortable over the QC45. Sound-wise, as someone that has no idea how to describe aurally, I'd say that the Cloud II will definitely offer a good experience listening to music, watching a movie, or for gaming.

If you're looking to get one, I'd definitely recommend getting them in "Black" or "Gun Metal" for a more stealthy, work-friendly look compared to the "Red" ones lol. They even come with a nice USB "audio card" that's super nice and makes it easy for you to extend and hide the audio cable under your desk. It also has an okay microphone that I don't really use, but you could. When I got it years ago, they even gave a nice travel bag for the headset, though I'm not sure if they still include that.

EXACTLY. I literally cannot wear in-ear #earbuds, for comfort reasons and also to avoid fatigue and dizziness. It drives me insane how there aren't many of them, and not many of them are good. #Apple's regular #EarPods are comfortable (to my ears), but they don't last long despite how expensive they are. There are other cheap ones that are similar and work fine, but none that comes to mind that I'd recommend. Apple's #AirPods might be the only/best non in-ear buds there is rn, but if you use it too often, I cannot stomach having to dispose of the AirPods after a couple of years (after 1 year even) when its battery gets scuffed. This is probably true for any wireless earphones (maybe even headphones).

I have to say though, as someone who's anti in-ear earphones my whole life,
#AirPodsPro has my approval. I don't know what magic they pulled (it's apparently partly has to do with the vents) but wearing them in your ears, + enable the bud's Transparency mode (which until today is still the ONLY good transparency/awareness mode to exist even compared to other expensive, much bigger #headphones like #Sony's XM line and #Bose's QC line), you will literally feel like you're not wearing anything - comfort-wise AND most importantly, hearing-wise. You will hear ur surroundings not 1db quieter, or louder, it's really that natural sounding.

Despite feeling like you're not wearing anything in your ears though, and it is
THAT comfortable, it will still hurt the insides of ur ears if u wear it all day/night. But that could just be me, since I have earphones on even while sleeping. My only complaint I have of the AirPods Pro though other than the pain I sometimes get after extremely long use, is that I find it... pretty quiet. I'm not sure if it's true, but it certainly feels quieter even when compared to my regular AirPods Gen 1. The mic is pretty meh too if that matters, the mic on the regular wired EarPods is significantly better.

Found a pile of HDMI cables in a plastic bag in a store's "electronics recycling" cart, brought them home… and tonight discovered a working pair of #Sony MDR-W08 "vertical in-the-ear" sports #headphones in the bag!

Seems like I'm in luck, as the MDR-W08 have long been discontinued, and apparently they have a cult following. For a long time I've wanted gym #headsets that aren't some Li-ion/Li-Po battery-powered planned-obsolescence bullshit… I will have to take care of these 🧐️

Can someone reccommend me #headphones ? I need:

  • Big earphones (not small buds)
  • Wireless bluetooth (Also considering wired with detachable wire, but wireless are preffered)
  • Tolerable sound quality for music
  • Not very costly and not very new models (later has problems with being bought in my region)
  • Prefferably durable

Maybe I want too much, but happy to receive any reccomendation.

You can buy them fully assembled or build from a kit, or make everything yourself. From reviews they seem to be relatively very cheap compared to how good they sound.
They run off of a USB connection.
These are open-back over-ear. I wonder if there's designs for a closed-back version...

Dug my over-ear cans 🎧 (a pair of Oppo OM-3 closed-back headphones) out of my desk for the first time in… I don’t even know how long, and I really need to keep these close at hand. Just a real joy to listen with, and simpler, cleaner, and more balanced/flat response than the AirPods Pro that are now my daily drivers.

Anyway, don‘t forget to enjoy the great gear you might have sitting around, and if you don’t enjoy it, pass it on so someone else can. #headphones #treatYoSelf

I feel like it's really hard to find ear muff headphones.

Basically ear muffs (like for shooting or industrial work) with headphone speakers in them.

Everything I find is either ear muffs, or noise cancelling headphones, but not the specific combo of both.

I've seen a few bluetooth enabled ear muffs but I'm skeptical of them.

If you want good headphones, buy the Sony XM4 (!), not the XM5. I wanted to upgrade and I really wanted to like the XM5 because the design is neat. But they're not worth it. After 20 days of trying to love it I have to admit they are heavily overpriced and don't provide any benefit as opposed to the XM4 other than design.

I've got some Anker Q20s which are amazing, but don't fit *over* my ears which means that they're not comfortable to wear for extended periods.

My old wired Sennheisers seem to have given up the ghost in terms of noise cancellation.

TBH I don't really care how much a good pair of headphones costs because they're for work. Lemme know what the best ones are in terms of comfort for *work* (not music!)

Anyone have Over-Ear Headphones recommendations for under approx €200?

Mostly for travelling, so Bluetooth ideal but I’ll take wired.

Does anybody have Beats Fit Pro headphones? How's the fit? I'm thinking about getting them but Apple earbuds tend to fall out of my ears when running.

say what you will about #Apple, but they make nice stuff.

I bought a pair of Air Pods Pro over the holidays to use with my iPhone, iPad and MacBook. I’d resisted these for years because I’m a wired #headphones guy. I have a pair of Mifo O7s that are Pretty Good at being Bluetooth headphones, but they won’t pair with multiple devices so are inconvenient.

Airpods and their ability to seamlessly switch devices are magical.

Sound quality is decent, substantial. Noise cancelling works well.

A clipping from the #1975 #Sears Christmas catalog for "Headphone Radios." I love that the first example they give for an activity you can do while wearing them is "hours of hiking." 😂

A clipping from the 1975 Sears Christmas catalog. It features "Headphone Radios". They look like enormous headphones with ear cups that are almost cube shaped. On the ad, it says: "Headphone Radios for uninterrupted listening to your favorite radio stations." It also says: "So lightweight they feel comfortable for hours of hiking.", "Only you can ear the music as soft or loud as you like.", "Listen to music or sports instead of irritating noise.", and "Enjoy weekend sports with your weekend chores."

PSA: Do not ever test reconnecting your amp to your #headphones by putting them on without checking the volume first.

It was 1 second but so insanely loud that it made me dizzy and my ears still feel weird. Really hoping I didn’t cause any permanent damage. I’m sure this is an electronics thing, but why can headphones even go so loud?
