    Back on topic, also got wireless buds

    https://www.soundcore.com/products/variant/liberty-lite/A3901011

    Decent sound for great cost/portability. I also pretty much only wear buds when I'm working out or traveling and they never budge, block out a decent amount of ambient sound, are alright for phone usage

    Gf got me this awesome Lego kit

    Dad got me a solid metal spinning top set which is ridiculous and the epitome of wasted money, but I've honestly poetical spent the most time messing with this than anything else

    I mainly use my ole' HD650's w/ PC motherboard sound, to play Quake. While I enjoy delicious audiophile tears, this reminds me I rly need to get myself a proper headphone setup as late xmas present.

    Yours does seem great value Ut. Ignoring subjective audiophile-bullshit, any reason one would pay more?

    No idea. I use a Sennheiser PC 363D which was like $150ish I think when I got them so I can't imagine paying a ton more for a DAC. Seems like the 363D is discontinued too, and the 373D has gotten meh reviews.

    Not really. what you'll want to consider is future proofing. If you know for sure only to listen to headphones go for it.
    That's got a coax out and a 1/8" line out ontop of the headphone jack. If you want to run anything above pretty basic computer speakers you're going to need some sort of adapter to get a proper RCA connection going. You're going to lose some quality and power there. Oddly as it sounds the coax output is a digital only, so just allows you take the digital input and send that digital back out to another device like a receiver of some sort, not into a pair of speakers (well you can, but it defeats the purpose of the analog conversion.)
    But being an analog output through the other jacks, not digital, it degrades over connections so splicing and using multiple wires is best avoided as much as possible. In the end though it's pretty negligible and one of those things if you compared you'd have to be a real damn audiophile to really pick up on any quality loss.




    Hit the $150+ area and you're still looking at similar quality sound output but you're going to see models with RCA outs for a better throughput to a speaker/receiver setup, probably optical input.

    I needed to use a chin mount or chest mount and move to 4k 16:9 with hyper stabilization.

    Going to retry soon

    Nice! I need to get out there and somewhere with a downhill, i'm sooo bored of miles and miles of roots and log rolls.

    From watching bunches of shit on youtube everyone says the stabilization isnt all it's cracked up to be on the 7, and to still invest in a chest gimble mount.

    I knew an engineer who used to do this, he would try to get this former marine coworker to do it.

    How physically intensive is downhill biking?

    Like.. is it a core workout I assume? What muscles get worked.

    It's rough. I had done road cycling for few years before trying, like real intense. 200-250 miles a week, at least 1 100 mile ride a month, and first time doing a real mountain ride I was exhausted after 30 mins.

    Not more demanding, but unexpectedly different set of muscles. Best description - normal cycling (spinning at gym, or even i guess running to a point, your normal cardio) is akin to just doing squats over and over again and mountain biking is like getting up on a balance ball, squatting and holding that squat for 10-15, 30+ minutes even.

    Definitely a lot more core strength, and also a lot of upper body work, you're pushing and pulling and punching around the bike with your arms, and when you are pedaling it's quick fast punches up over a rock roll or something like that so over all a lot more fast twitch muscle use.

    It's also always best to "earn your turns" and bike up to the lines down so you get that intense cardio in first.


    Definitely do it! Few things though, it's going to cost thousands, you're going to break something and get hurt often. It's legit scary.

    Depends. You'll need a decent core to control bike, but mostly you need confidence, forearm, grip strength, legs if you pedal up, but not so much on the down hill unless you're on a little up or racing which will mostly max out your hr, and technique.

    I had my HR in the upper 150s going downhill with little peddling, mostly from adrenalin, and upper body to control the bike

    I bought one of these with some of my Amazon money. Best $50 spent. I've been making shakes with a mix of kale, spinach, broccoli, blueberries, raspberries, chia seeds, flax seeds, almonds, walnuts, bananas, apples, almond milk, protein powder, and they taste freaking awesome. Not all those things in every shake, but you get the idea. Takes this thing like 20 seconds to liquify it all.
