you just put in a new battery, not like you re-bought a brand new one. at least these were made to last... Apple may have understood it was a marketing mistake.

Should I buy the mass drop k702s or whatever? Are they comfy and open?Not much of an audiophile but never really tried super high end headphones, currently just using senheiser pc320s and they seem okay. I imagine I would need a DAC as well what would be the reasonable one to get with said headphones?

Nice IEM's
Compared to the ear dildo's I really do prefer these ones sound, and they are so much more comfortable

I don't notice the difference immediately, but I have some mp3 files from 5 years ago that now sound like shit in comparison to the youtube compressed sound. Deterioration DOES exist.

I see you learned a new word :^)
Maybe I'm a dumbass, but quit taking every single chance to use 'autist' when it's not even applicable in this situation, it makes you look like a newfag or child that finally has the freedom to swear. If someone is being pedantic or failing to communicate a point, that is true autism.

>>45348436
Believing files deteriorate over time and degrade in sound quality is literally autistic
>>
>>45346924
Waste of money

>>45348466
Believing lossless audio isn't a thing when it's documented by everybody, and taught when you take audio classes for being a sound engineer is literal retardation.
Shut the fuck up about things you don't know.

the problem was finding one that didn't cost 50 dollars shipping
I said fuck it and bought a 32gb CF, the shipping was cheap so it was the best option at the time

I didn't knew about ali at the time
I had good experience with amazon so I wanted to only buy from there, I just bought some KZ earphones from there since there aren't anyway on amazon, I'll see if I like shopping from there, I hope it doesn't take too long to get here

Implying any of you fucking dipshits know anything about digital audio or these products. Having an audiophile discussion on this board is like talking to a wall that just spouts shit. Look at the first posts. Each one is an insult to the previous post. Just ask these things from professional forums not some anonymous neckbeards whose experience you have no idea of. You have no idea if they are just talking shit or they dont know shit about the topic and are telling lies unknowingly.>>45340902
