@RudeRecording:  You should be remunerated by OneOdio for the sales hyperbole, errr... Audiophileese translation. Just me but I like charts and graphs when judging audio performance, it reduces spin-nausea.

@igorperic5232:  Do you have a video already or a suggestion how to setup your laptop for a greater audio experience? What should someone buy and how much to invest?😄

@firecloud77:  Your accent, vocal inflections, facial expressions, bear a striking resemblance to Pat Condell. It's uncanny.

@srenkrabbe2991:  Audiophilebberish could be the word :-)

@taidee:  Well I don't care what the audiophile language might be, I'll be coming for poetry reading

@martineyles:  The correct term for audiophile language, as stated by a true audiophile is "objective fact", or "the correct view". Their perfect golden ears mean they never need give a subjective opinion ever again.

@Compact-Cassette:  It is very interesting. Right now I'm looking for good headphones for comfortable listening to your favorite music and for maximum enjoyment

@dangerzone007:  This review was the biggest lot of bulshit I've ever heard.

@thexfile.:  The in-ear type buds always work out on me.

@richyfoster7694:  Asymmetrical ears are real! My right ear can spit out any bud/IEM under 10 minutes😢 Even Comply foam tips can only do a couple of hours! Still love my Sennies though, momentum m2 in-ears, cheap and fun.

@evanmcdonnal:  Hi Paul, could you please review one or both of the live performance videos on my channel and give me some advice about how to improve my audio quality? Thanks!

@nikolaki:  3:43 I bought a cheap pair of in ear monitors, bass guitars player, kz zsn I think. They translate the bass an high frequencies well. Just what I need on a loud stage but I also experience the 'I'm not hearing everything " when I use them for general listening

@nitromcclean:  You did a great job in this one.

@andymouse:  The word you're looking for is B̶o̶l̶l̶o̶c̶k̶s̶ Rubbish as I can't even understand a fraction of what they talk about....cheers

@gabrielgodwin9953:  I understand your reluctance to disclose your favorite headphones. I too have a pair which I have used since the late 90's that have been, regrettably discontinued. As such, they are becoming increasingly difficult to find. I have yet to try out their replacement model. Once you've become so accustomed to a certain model it's hard to make a change.
I have to agree with you about the Sennheiser ear buds. I've never found a model that I like, even in their more pricey large diaphragm headphones. It's a shame that they should make such iconic and classic mics yet such dreadful headphones. That's just a subjective opinion, I know others that love them. That said, they do come in handy for tracking sessions and mix/master testing purposes.

@carminedambrosio7 replies to @gabrielgodwin9953: I still have a couple of Sennheiser HD40's from 1990 (I was 20 at the time). I've used them with all three audio systems I've changed in the last thirty years, two smartphones and a portable CD player. They have always amazed me for the rich and natural sound they manage to have, and the extreme lightness and wearability. I recently had to order replacement pads, but from another model, because no one sells his anymore. I'll have to start cutting them to give them the shape of the original pads.

@gabrielgodwin9953 replies to @gabrielgodwin9953: @carminedambrosio7  That's one of those things. If you really like them that's great. Once you get used to the sound that your ears like, it's hard to switch. That is a bummer that you can't get the correct ear pads though. I'm in the same boat with my favorite headphones as well.

@marxman00:  Ever tried the Valsalva maneuver ?

@scottwolf8633:  Still listening through my 1978, Stax MKIII/SRD-7, driven by Single Ended, EL 509 based, OTL, with 4 Watts into 8 Ohm and having a blast.

@CaptainJack2048:  I propose that we call the language (or perhaps argot) of audiophiles "amorsonese" (emphasis on the second syllable I think would be best) from the Latin "amor sonus". It appropriately matches the subject, and it has just the right ring of pomposity.

@dangerzone007 replies to @CaptainJack2048: This review was pure bulshit. Audiofiles hate bulshit. Next thing you'll be going on how one cable sounds better than another. Audiophiles also hate snake oil.

@JamsODonnell100:  This was fun. And as I haven’t yet seen the original, useful info. Thanks.
