    Hifiman RE-400 earbud review

    Recently, Hifiman had a promotion where they gave out a pair of their RE-400 earbuds. It ended a few days ago and, oddly enough, I was the only one who participated. The earbuds arrived last week on Thursday and I've been using them over the weekend. This is my personal review of the RE-400...

    Soundcheck not working

    I'm posting to see if anyone is having the same issue as me. I have soundcheck in iTunes enabled. I then replace the values iTunes calculated with ReplayGain values calculated by iVolume (I don't actually do it, the program does). Everything is fine for the majority of songs in my iTunes...

    2013 Beats Studio Wireless review

    Because I need to take a break, I thought I would share my thoughts on a Christmas gift I received this year: a pair of matte black 2013 Beats Studio wireless headphones. As some of you may know, I have been a Bose headphone advocate for a while. Sure, they have always been more expensive than...

    iTunes Match/iCloud repeat songs iPhone 5

    I'm having a fairly recent issue with my iPhone 5. I had to restore it today and when I set everything back up, I accidentally enabled iCloud from the initial iOS 6 setup options. I then went through and took off iTunes Match for music (I want to manage my music through iTunes only and not...

    iPad 3 - Why I went against my word.

    First off, I don't really know what this is going to be but I thought it would be fun to share my recent iPad 3 experience. As some of you may know, I had no iterations of buying an iPad 3. Honestly, the internal hardware isn't much of an upgrade (the GPU in the SoC was already overkill for...

    Anyone else excited for the new Apple TV?

    I know Apple's media event earlier this week was pretty much just about the iPad 3 (I know that isn't the official name but I don't care). I was initially anxious for new iPad 3 news but I don't really think it offers that much of an upgrade for current iPad 2 owners. Yes, the display looks...

    Apple Script for iTunes duplicates

    I am looking for help writing an Apple Script to work with iTunes. I want to find all of the duplicate songs in my iTunes library. One version of these files (but not every single one of them) has a rating. The Apple lossless versions do not. I want an Apple Script that can find the...

    iTunes Match experience thus far

    I wasn't sure if this would go under the iTunes section or iTunes Store section. Seeing as how this feature goes through the iTunes Store, I placed it here. Anyway, I thought I would say something about my experience with iTunes Match since it just came out yesterday. So far, things have not...

    Korn III: Remember Who You Are

    The new Korn album is out today and I think it is their best work since their self-titled release. The album was produced by Ross Robinson (he also produced their first two records) and recorded using standard analog equipment without the use of Pro Tools. Singer Jonathan Davis also decided to...

    Charging issues

    Engadget and other websites are reporting something that I found out after hooking my iPad up to my various computers today: the iPad may not charge via a standard USB port. The issue is that the iPad reuquires 10 volts in order to charge. The USB2.0 standard is 5 volts. My docked tablet...

    Convert audio files in iTunes 9.1

    I upgraded to iTunes 9.1 yesterday due to me possibly getting an iPad tomorrow. The only issue is that I can no longer convert audio files in my iTunes library whether they are AIFF, PCM WAV, ALAC, AAC, or mp3. I didn't notice this until today whenever a friend asked me to convert a couple of...

    Some by the name of mao (on the hydrogenaudio boards) has come up with a command-line utility allowing Windows users to encode AAC files using QuickTime. It is known as qtaacenc and will work with any program that uses command-line encoders. qtaacenc requires that at least QuickTime 7.6.5 is...

    Nero 1.5.3.0 has been released

    I am sure people already know this but Nero AAC 1.5.3.0 has been released. It will be included in the latest 128kbps listening test over at hydrogenaudio (which should be conducted here in a month or two). Nero initially released 1.5.1.0 of their AAC encoder but it had a bug with non-SSE...

    iTunes Plus setting

    So another user at hydrogenaudio and I have been looking at iTunes' new iTunes Plus setting for encoding audio (ie ripping CDs). Before, iTunes just offered a "Higher Quality 256kbps" option where iTunes Plus is currently located. iTunes uses QuickTime for pretty much everything. So the...

    iTunes Plus can now upgrade individual songs/albums/music videos

    For those who don't know, Apples changed the iTunes Store today. It now allows you to upgrade individual songs, individual albums, and individual music videos without having to upgrade everything. This means that you can upgrade an album for around $3.00 instead of upgrading all of your iTunes...

    Genius file format limitations

    Alright, it took iTunes overnight to scan my library for its new Genius feature. So far I am liking it except for one thing: it mixes my lossy and lossless files in the playlist. I have my lossless files in my iTunes library for archiving purposes only and only use my lossy files for listening...

    iTunes no longer displays average bitrate for VBR AAC

    Well, I upgraded to iTunes 7.6 yesterday and didn't notice this. I encoded a song today using iTunes and set it to 128kbps VBR AAC. iTunes 7.5 would display the overall average bitrate of the song. With that setting, some songs would show 130kbps and some would show all the way up to 141kbps...

    So the Blue Harvest episode of Family Guy is out today and I picked it up on DVD. The standard two disc set and the special edition package both come with a digital copy of the movie. You can either set it up through iTunes if you have an iPod/iPhone or through Windows Media Player if you have...

    Nero Recode 2 Guide

    OK, here is a rough draft of my Nero Recode 2 guide for encoding iPod compatible videos. It took quite a bit of time but I finally finished it. I just finished it and haven't read through the guide so let me know if there are any changes that you would like to see. The guide is in the PDF...
