the latter has too much bass for my liking

2017-03-23 12:17:25 UTC  

Superlux 668b 🆗

i have rock zircon, xiaomi hybrid and kz ate at home

2017-03-23 12:23:28 UTC  

the hybrid are perfect in terms of overall performance in my opinion

2017-03-23 12:23:40 UTC  

but the kz ate have better soundstage and detail, but have a harsh high which could be nerfed through eq

2017-03-23 12:23:43 UTC  

as well as the rock zircon

2017-03-23 12:23:59 UTC  

while the zircon tends to have strange isolation which makes the bass overpronounced sometimes, depending on the humidity of your ear-canal

2017-03-23 12:25:17 UTC  

zircon are prone to have an unsatisfying fit

2017-03-23 12:25:32 UTC  

to many people i recommended these headphones on

2017-03-23 12:45:56 UTC  

zircons don't last very long

`Superlux 668b`
amazing, didn't know it existed

All the shit you buy from china is made by hand

2017-03-23 13:13:18 UTC  

and typically not made by automated machines

2017-03-23 13:20:07 UTC  

many 22nm and 14nm SoC from China. now do they assemble that by hand?

2017-03-23 13:21:35 UTC  

make chink socs great again

2017-03-23 13:21:37 UTC  


2017-03-23 13:57:22 UTC  

@tulio (tĂșlio) obviously integrated circuits aren't, but the components get assembled onto the circuit board by hand. If you wanna learn more, see the first chapter of "The Hardware Hacker: Adventures in Making and Breaking Hardware" by Andrew "bunnie" Huang.

2017-03-23 13:59:27 UTC  

do they solder SMDs by hand too?

2017-03-23 13:59:44 UTC  

Do you think there could ever be something like Shenzen in a semi-free country? I'd love to live close to someplace where all the components and electronics books are cheap af, but I don't wanna give up muh freedoms in order to do so.

2017-03-23 14:00:52 UTC  

@tulio (tĂșlio) Not sure, but just look at a Foxconn assembly line and see how much is done by hand. There's over 500 people in those lines.

2017-03-23 14:01:56 UTC  

I've seem them, I stand corrected

2017-03-23 14:03:07 UTC  

Seriously tho, read the book I mentioned. It's well written and interesting af.

2017-03-23 14:10:35 UTC  

@(import (srfi 151)) does HK sort of count?

2017-03-23 14:10:41 UTC  

it's just next door to shenzhen

2017-03-23 14:12:02 UTC  


2017-03-23 14:12:38 UTC  

cost of living is quite though though

2017-03-23 14:27:56 UTC  

is it worth buying chinese solder/soldering iron?

2017-03-23 14:28:08 UTC  

Yeah, I use a chink soldering iron.

2017-03-23 14:28:13 UTC  

My only regret is not buying a stronger one.

2017-03-23 14:28:19 UTC  


2017-03-23 14:28:26 UTC  

the yihuas I hear are decent

2017-03-23 14:28:36 UTC  

or did it break after like 20 heats

2017-03-23 14:28:56 UTC  

I use it every so often. I've gotten more than 20 uses out of it.

2017-03-23 14:29:06 UTC  

I dunno if I'd use Chinese solder without a proper fume Hood.

2017-03-23 14:29:14 UTC  

Just make sure your room is ventilated.
