Stuff on desk in order of importance:


>Calendar print-out made with iOS Calendar app

>Hot sauce (Trader Joe's decent Sriracha, but not on my top 5 hot sauce buys).

>Preserved Head of Actual Gator or Possibly Crocodile, Either Way It's Because My Unit's Nickname is The Gators

>$5 Coffee cup from amazon

>Uniform hat with giant picture of Obama duct-taped on the inside mostly meant to trigger rednecks (highly effective)

You forgot about the headphones! I have been rawking the same M50x's since 2014.

I still use a pair of the old M50s daily that I bought around Christmas 2010. And it's not like I've taken that great care of them. Absolute troopers.

Though they are starting to show their age now. All the covering on the headband has fallen off and I recently broke a little bit of plastic which ensures the cup stays in place when up against the resistance of your head. I had to tape that up so now left side no longer folds. I guess I dropped them one too many times. I'll probably try to get another 6-12 months out of them.

Oh totally. It's still in near mint condition, only now the leather on the earpads is starting to wear off, which is completely reasonable because I've been using it in all weather conditions and often 4 hours at a time.

Mine literally broke last night. Proof of karma for not mentioning them in my original post.

Fixed it with duct tape. 2 years of the best budget studio quality and I treat it like I treat my combat boots.

One day I'll have a pair of AKGs. One day :')

I got mine from Massdrop, so when a buddy of mine wanted good headphones I convinced him to go for the Massdrop sale then, the AKG K7XX. In a side by side comparison I kinda love mine more. The M50x is much more 'precise', if that makes sense. It's like it comes with a mixer built in or something, whereas that AKG sounded like it had some drowned out sounds.

That's good to know. But AKG has enough high-end equipment that I'm sure there will be something to top the M50x. That said, again, the M50x is pretty freakin' amazing.

Ah damn, that sucks. I think I'm going to go for a pair of Beyerdynamics next.
