Head(phone)s: A Biography Of Technological South Florida

I’m going to let you two try one more time to tell the nice people about the headphones. You need to give your opinion in a straightforward and understandable way, discuss the pros and cons of the item, and end with a recommendation on whether folks should buy it.

If they’re going to buy it, they should do it from this link.

Please don’t do that.

Don’t stifle capitalism, pinko.

I hate you, too. Just do this like normal humans.


Sure. Tell us about the headphones.

They’re Sony headphones and they’re nifty.

What are the specs?

Do you not read this site? I just told everyone the specs.

Did you? I like to save your posts for the next day and read them in a big bunch.

You post a lot.

I can’t work like this. I’m going to my imaginary trailer.





A professional shows up prepared, Gordon.

I tried. There’s like a dozen posts a day, every day.

It’s called being prolific.

It’s called being graphomaniacal and lonely.

Six of one.

You going to get him?






I’m not coming out. How dare he not read my precious words? So precious.

Yes, you’re Stravinsky.

Stravinsky? Stravinsky was a composer.

He wrote music.

But you wouldn’t call him a “writer,” you would call him a “composer.”

The notes need to be written down. He thought them up and put them on paper: that’s writing.





Duck season!

Rabbit sea–

I’m not playing this game with you.

You almost did.

Do you want to participate in the FAQ?

They sound really good, but my left ear hurts a little. The cord is curly like Brian May’s guitar lead, and I like that. There is also a pouch.

Then I guess we’re done.


Hey! Am I still getting paid?

You were never getting paid.



  1. Ok first of all your left ear should not hurt. I confess my only experience with Sony headphones was just after the turn of the century when I listened to the complete line and then compared it with some other non brand name you’ve ever heard of and the non brand name blew them away, they retailed a about $160 back then but cost the store $14. Which should tell you something about headphone margins.
    Anyway, I’ve had sennheiser hd-280 PRO model headphones for more than 5 years or so at points listening 8 hours a day on them. They popped up on Amazon as being in the same price range as yours. Anyway they block outside noises like no other phone and thus are super comfy and great in noisy environments. The other plus is you can easily replace the cable (also super long so I can sit on couch with it hooked up to servo) as it is detachable and I had to do once. You can also take them apart and fill them with blue poly tack to increase the already fantastic bass if you are a geek.
    David leeringstuffiuex was probably listening to David Bowies tin machine through his Sony headphones. Oh readers of totd I would recommend the sennheiser hd-280 pro, although you need a little fiio headphone amp if your listening through an iPod or itouch to make them sound good,

    I picked up a set of Sony MDRZX100 headphones that someone threw out because one cable was snapped, and I bought a longer and stronger cable for 99 cents at the dollar store, and I rewired them with the new cable, except I rewired them backwards so the channels are switched, so I had to put pink yellow stickies with big L and R on the correct sides so I know which way to wear them, and those pink yellow stickies do look cool against the black, and they still sound great, and having the sides switched actually makes them easier to put on and to wear because of how easily the side-switched ear parts move in relation to my head.
