Random thoughts

So much has happened since the last time I’ve blogged, but I’m not in the mood to go into details.

I will mention though that one of the more notable events was a series of concerts we had in the AFP theater, after each we would setup camp at Jeline’s till the weekend was over.

It was a fun concert because we would call it the “Soulsearch get-together” since apparently our group found its way to so many different groups and suddenly merged into one event. Jeline, Chris, Jonel from the Ateneo Chamber Singers, Elaine from Hangad (and ACS), me from BukasPalad, and GP as the arranger of a bunch of songs, and pianist of the orchestra (and ACS member too)

It’s like every “group” you’d check out, there was at least one Soulsearch member in there. What a waste that Chrise and Joy (Hangad) weren’t there. If the Madrigal Singers were there, then Soulsearch would still have been represented by Papo hahahha. We’re like insects infesting the music world hehehehe.

Etymotic Research ER4P

Ok remember when I was rationalizing how getting the EM3s was enough to not get the upper class headphones (e.g. e5c, UE10 pro, ER4P/S)? Well I friggin’ caved! As of tomorrow morning I’m going back to the Norman Audio showroom, to get a pair of Etymotic Research ER4Ps.

These are one of the many “upper class” canalphones I rationalized to be too expensive to invest in (but never did I question their quality), hence settling for the kick-ass FutureSonics EM3s

This has a backstory to it, which of course is a further rationalization of how weak I am when it comes to technolust hahaha. Surprisingly though my mom didn’t question my decision at all… maybe it was because she just bought a digicam for herself without actually knowing what the hell she wanted. We chose for her, and I must say it was a nice Panasonic Lumix (Leica lens) bargain. Anyways, I digress. Read More

FutureSonics EM3… No. Actually, a primer on in-ear headphones.

Future Sonics EM3

Actually, Music as a primary category for this post is erroneous… should’ve been “Audio” or something.

Anyways, I’ve gone ahead and done it again, ordered a “ridiculously expensive” audio product. Along the way, you’ll find out that it was actually cheap (hahaha like every other thing I buy – except for the powerbook) but right now, I don’t think I stand a chance of convincing anyone that dropping 100USD for headphones that look like this is actually a steal!

So why did I get them? Read on…
