    By now everyone is aware that smoking is bad.

    Yet people still do it.

    Because some people don't care about the negative side effects of things, or they are willing to take the risk of whether or not those side affects are going to hit them or not.



    WTF Good is an awareness program for something everyone already knows?




    Awareness Campaign: This is New York City reminding you.... beer will get you drunk! This has been a reminder from the City of New York!



    **** New York.

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    3. Unlawful to do.
    4. Not sure the government has anything to do with it..... and they are on the verge of banning cigarettes in many places with how many places you are NOT allowed to smoke.

    So... what does that tell us about the future of ear buds in NYC?

    On the second point, I didn't like the feeling of the flanges going deep in my ear. Granted the sound was cool, but it just felt...not for me. Now, I spent about 50-60 bucks on some headphones from Sennheisier, going for the recommended starter cans (which at the time were the HD-497) but contemplated going with the Grado SR60. Either way, it was good stuff.





    Of course, once I got started, I couldn't stop. And it got more expensive.

    The Sennheiser HD-600 that was the second headphone I posted earlier in the thread...and these beauties. Paired with a full desktop headphone amplifier as well, naturally.

    Nice! Thanks for the advice. I must say those look a lot more comfortable than ear buds. The ear buds fall out of my ears constantly anyway.
