So these lovely 6isolator earphones from Etymotic Research just arrived, and once it became clear that they had to go in right against my ear drum, they sounded a lot less like an AM radio and a lot more like what they were sold as, which is very high-quality external noise-blocking earbuds. They’re just a little uncomfortable, but hopefully i’ll adjust or they’ll get better.
At $75 via Amazon, which is half off list price, they’d better be good… but so far so good. should be very good on the plane to/from NYC.
[later] “heresy (version)” from NIN FDTS v2 is playing… yes, these are very, very good.
somebody needs to make a tribute video to George W with this song
