I received these in the mail yesterday.


Right now I’m burning them in.


When I’m done with that, I’ll post my findings.  alt=:" />

Burning in is a good thing. I’ve been an audiophile since the late 1960’s. It definately makes a improvement with amplifers, headphones, and speakers.

@atbglenn, the reason I suggested burning in these headphones is that the JVC HA S400, S500, 680 series of headphones have carbon nanotube diaphragms, confirmed under the micro scope.

This means the diaphragm membranes are much much harder than regular diaphragms, and burn in for at least 100 hours is essential to get out the full potential of the drivers.

The JVC HA S series that I mentioned before, having tested 2xHA S500s and 1xS400s, are the only headphones that I ever tested to have benefits, and huge ones at that, to actually burn-in.

Burned in and fully nodded, they challenge headphones like Audio Technical M50Xs and Senheiser HD598CS, although they are much less comfortable, and you need to mod them.

Got my Blackstone 17” propane griddle today with some accessories today. I haven’t used it yet because I’m looking for a suitable stand that will allow me to use my regular table to grill along with this new griddle.

And these for $22.50:

Alright, I burned them in for more than the recommended 48 hours...

(I don't have anything good to compare these to except iLuv iEP322 IEMs.)

The JVC stock ear pads are atrocious, but the Brainwavz ear pads are excellent.

The sound quality is very nice, the bass is awesome, and the noise isolation is extremely good.

I'm a happy raccoon!  :THUMBS-UP:

So far I cooked pancakes, eggs, bacon, steak, fried onions, mushrooms, and potatoes on this griddle. All I can say is WOW!!!! I love this thing. Of course, I seasoned it with olive oil 4 times before I used it. The cooking surface is pretty much black now. The way it should be Smile
Nothing sticks! Cleanup is easy peasy!

This Grill would come in handy for our upcoming camping trip. Have to ask wife if she wants it. We already have a 2-burner portable propane range and a small portable Weber grill though.

Hi Pete, I still have a two burner grill. I will be using them both. What I like about the Blackstone is the fact that you can cook stuff you can’t cook on a grill. Plus the fact I only paid $60 on Amazon Prime, it was a no-brainer. Unfortunately, Amazon’s price keeps changing just about every day. Right now the price is $71.69

Here’s a picture. BTW, I’m having my deck cleaned and stained in the next few weeks.

With the Blackstone cover.

Thanks for the pic. That Blackstone griddle is larger than I thought. I guess that’s a good thing, but I don’t think we’d have room in our car to take it with us camping.

It measures17.5 × 18 × 8.5 inches

I ordered one of these so I can both my grills.

What I cooked on my Blackstone for dinner today. A pork chop, potatoes and opinions. I was only able to eat half. I’ll have the rest for lunch tomorrow. I have to say this griddle is amazing. The food that comes off it taste beyond great.

A mini fridge next to it would be cool. Maybe with glass door and led illumination around it or something.

The grills are right outside my kitchen door. No need for a fridge there.

Yeah, but come one, it’s got the leds around it…. And you can see what’s inside the fridge…
You know I don’t read about it but wonder what kind of BBQ gadgets Banggood and Gearbest sell….

Do you know if there is a natural gas jet kit for those grills? I have natural gas piped out to my back patio so I don’t have to use propane tanks.

I didn’t know. I have natural gas heating, water, and stove in my house. I’ll have to look into that.

You know Glenn, the first split second I saw the picture of the grill (http://budgetlightforum.com/comment/1329495#comment-1329495) I thought it was a hifi amplifier with the volume knob in the middle. Ughh

I’ve got the Makita MAC700. I have it about 5 years now. I think it’s the best small compressor made. It’s quiet, fills from zero to 120psi in about 45 seconds. I couldn’t be happier.

My 20 year old Mitutoyo finally died so I ordered an iGaging ABSOLUTE ORIGIN 0-6” Digital Electronic Caliper – IP54 Protection / Extreme Accuracy. Ordered it from Amazon Prime. I’ll have it Sunday. From the reviews I watched on youtube, it’s supposed to be excellent.

Glenn, great choice! The 8” version of this caliper has been sitting in my Amazon “saved for later” list for a long time now, just waiting to pull the trigger, but for the time being I make do with the cheapo caliper I got from Gearbest on some big sale last year.

Pete, I have a cheap Chinese caliper, but I’m always zeroing it out. It’s pretty inconsistent.

Sorry about pushing this new griddle, but it’s incredible. I always wondered why Hebrew National Hot Dogs always tasted better when I got them at my local kosher take-out place. Anyway, I cooked 2 of them on my Blackstone today, and guess what? they were just as good! I think it might be the high heat this griddle produces. Not sure though. Mustard and Sauerkraut is the only way to go. JMO….
