Reply Fridays #2

It’s time to reply or not reply to replies. Reply.

Welcome to Reply Fridays, the weekly article series where I finally click on my Medium notifications button and then write about it. I’ll highlight the replies I got, and share links to them, and where I feel the need to, I’ll reply!

I had 51 things this week. Only a few of them are replies!

If you want to participate in Reply Fridays…just leave a reply on one of my articles and BAM, you’ll probably make it in next week. If you need an answer from me about something related to headphones or other things I write about, Twitter is faster!

Okay here we go. Hey it’s Sunday and I’m writing these bold words! I’ve edited this article to add a reply I missed and to add a link I missed. I don’t know why I’m calling out my mistakes in bold print, but I guess I just do things differently than other writers.

The Whomper, who still has maybe my favorite writing/character gimmick on Medium, asked a followup question about the excellent WS1100iS headphones. I’d love to see Audio-Techncia try a fully closed version of that design, because their isolation is their only weak spot.

Michael follows up on his thoughts about the HyperX Cloud Flight, and how good the Cloud II is. I agree with him that the Cloud II is very good, and that the Flight should have been built with more metal and less plastic!

Yemina asked me a question about the Crusher Wireless, which I’m not equipped to answer at all. It did however make me call into question my own experience with the bass feature when writing the review, as I’m sure it worked even when on the cable. But experiencing some doubt is always fun!

Guys, I’m not a support department. :)

Jacob shares his continuing headphone journey. He’s had a lot of interesting experiences that will hopefully help some others out there!

VanGuilder took a gamble and bought Blue’s bizarre Lola headphones. I really wanted to like the Lolas myself, but they didn’t fit right on my head. I liked the MoFi’s better, but they were quite heavy.

Captain Gibb shares my frustrations about the lack of 7.1 virtual surround availability on the PS4. Sony makes some decent first party models, but outside of that you’ll have to spend top dollar and use a system with an external optical audio receiver.

That’s it for this week! If you want to comment on one of my stories then wait till Friday to hear from me, you can find my stuff here. If you’d like a faster reply(probably) check me out on Twitter or my personal site.

I do radio voice work by day, and write by day and night. I studied film and production. I love audio, design, and music. Also video games.
