Sennheiser Momentum 2.0

Yes!!

One of the best sounding On-Ear headphones i have ever tested.

Very comfortable, good head clamp not tiring on ears.

Very nice high tones clear mids a bit warm and pronounced on lower frequencies, base doe's not overwhelm mids or highs,
highs are clear without distortions bordering on ear piercing sounds.

Designed to use with android phones, I myself didn't like them on my HTC 10, but i loved them on my Sound Blaster Z and on my Sony Amp,
thou i can't like them on phone,
comaperd to my usual setup HTC 10 into Sound Blaster E5 and into SHURE SE 425,
Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 are just good sound signature is so different from SHURE SE 425.

It's been a long time since last entry, due to the fact, i was on holiday and i had good time with my camera.

I manage to purchase an extender, made by YONGNUO, cheaper alternative to Canon, price difference is astonishing,
Canon Extender EF 2x III is 300 pounds where Yongnuo Extender EF 2x is 130 pounds.
From reviews and few questions that i asked there and there, i got the idea that difference in picture quality is
negligible between this two extenders, so why pay premium price ?

Extender is working flawlessly with EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM, making it EF 140-400mm f/5.6L IS II USM,
while using extender on this lens i had to dial in -2EV on my camera, becouse resulting picture was two stops overexposed.
Chromatic aberrations and vignetting are non-existent, on longer zoom scale near 400mm picture becomes a tad softish,
thats the trade-off of extenders.

I wanted to test this extender with my EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM, i knew it's not listed as compatible with any extender,
but if you force it on this extender,
need to use small amount of force to click it in, lens works but AF does not, camera still recognize lens attached to it.

Mind you that camera used with this extender and lenses is Canon 1D X,
and i have no idea same results can be obtained on other cameras,
especially with EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM.

Small review of Soundblaster Z


Switching from ALC 1150 on Asus Z87-PRO to "SB" is a huge step in sound difference.

Being fed up with flat sound that came out from ALC 1150 and most notably delay on S/PDIF around 400 ms
which render watching movies or listening music unebearable (S/PDIF and anlaog simultaneously).

For as little as seventy pounds You are able to get brand new Soundblaster Z.

What can i say about it ?

It's perfect for my needs, no sound delay on S/PDIF with analog output, S/PDIF input for recording is a great advantage,
when you want to connect PS3 or any other device that's able to send audio over S/PDIF.

Very good high frequency response, many times better than any standard onboard Sound can offer.
It's loud, software is decent but quite heavy 168 MB. EQ in software is simple and have good functionality,
but lack of one thing when it comes to analog output.
The thing that is missing, is custom mapping of analog ports and switching from speakers to headphones
which enables front panel output,
disables sound output on rear jack for speakers.

You can't assign rear jack ports to send audio over two or three jacks for many sourcess,
you are stuck with static setup, there comes in handy no delay over S/PDIF.

PROS::
-Great Value for its Sound capabilities.
-116dB Signal-To-Noise Ratio
-600 Ohm Dedicated Headphone Amplifier
Maximum Playback Quality:5.1 : Up to 96kHz
Stereo Direct: Up to 192kHz
Frequency Response @96kHz: 5.1 : Up to 96kHz
Front Channel Out : 10Hz to 45kHz
Rear Channel Out : 15Hz to 45kHz
Center Out : 10Hz to 45kHz
Headphone (33 ohms): 10Hz to 45kHz
Frequency Response @192kHz (Stereo Direct Only): Front Channel Out : 10Hz to 88kHz
CONS::
-No custom jack mapping.
-Overwhelming backlight on this soundcard, which is red and can overshine other componnets.

This is a story about Gigabyte's motherboard which i recently bought.


And it's named G1.Sniper M5.


If someone is thinking about socket LGA1150 and was looking at this mobo, please, stop while it's not too late.

With this mobo there is so many things wrong on so many levels, that it's scarry.

What's good and bad about it ?

Pros::

- It looks nice inside case in a dark room
- Soundblaster on mobo is loud (very loud), and sounds nice (sounds really nice).
- Delay on S/PDIF is nonexistent, compared to back panel jack output.

Cons::
- Randomly detects or not Vertex 2 SSD drive.
- Front and back jack panel sometimes doesn't give sound output (after few restarts, sound miraculously came back).
- Hiss on front panel jack is loud, esspecially when You put load on GPU, than it's very loud.
- Frequent BSOD's.
- Software provided for Soundblaster, doesn't run properly, crashing immediately on startup or in sound manager on EQ settings.
- Driver installer for Qualcomm Atheros Killer E2201 (LAN card), requires NET.Framework 4.5, which has to be downloaded from Microsoft's site,
where installer hangs in one place, becouse it didn't install driver and can't download NET.Framwork.


For a 150 Pounds, You can find better alternative like i did.

140 Pounds for Asus Z87-PRO


Conclusion::

I will tell You what's best in this MoBo, the best thing is, i don't have it anymore, i send it back to the seller.

And i'm damn glad about that.

Best Regards



Two new tracks

1. Quirk - Yebo (Brancaccio and Aisher's A To The K Dub Mix) Dark Trance, very good one.
2. Minson - She was Made in Heaven (Original Mix) Trance, also very good.

Hello

Holiday has ended :( time to get back to work :D

Bunch of new photos added in "7D" from holiday.

Two new songs appeared in main music list

1. Anton Chernikov Vs Planet Funk - Your Burning Eyes Inside All The People (Ilya Malyuev Mashup)
2. Smallpools - Dreaming (The Chainsmokers Remix)

Smallpools blew me out of water, it's so loaded with positive energy, listen for your self :)

Lyrics::

I see the place that we've been locked together, together
Like we were something more
And it felt like maybe we could last forever, forever

But you led 'em to our hideout
Forced their way inside, now
They want us to surrender, us to surrender
But I could go all night right here
Between their crossfire
We'll send them up a message
I'll send the message
We're saying "give it up, give it up"

We've got no place to go
Caught up in the rodeo
Oh no, please God tell me we're dreaming
We've got nowhere to run
They've all got loaded guns
Oh no, please God tell me we're dreaming

Wait for the dust to settle down around us, around us
And stick to what we know
I think the air is finally safe to breathe again, to breathe again
The world is in your palm now
So take a breath and calm down
Cause you have been selected, you've been selected
A few will ever find out
And if you don't see why, well
At least you've got your nest egg, you've got your nest egg
So live it up, live it up!

Big update to "7D" section and http://www.liquid.pl/7D/

Main image is draggable no more, instead the small rectangle on bottom-right handle all the scrolling of an image.

Selective zoom is working (only when "Fit in window" checkbox is deselected), minimum area to be zoomed is 100x100 pixels,
only one level of zoom can be performed, to reset zoom click image again and you can zoom another area of displayed image.

Fixed BitmaData handling in display object of image displayed.
(NOTE:: when image is zoomed, some parts of an image have smoothing applyied and some don't, that'sbecouse I hit the upper most limits of
BitmapData Object width or height that can be displayed/drawed on or off stage, noticable when you move zoomed image).

Best Regards

Happy new Year 2013, it was long time ago since i wrote anything here.

After four months, it's time to write something.

During last months my hobby shifted from programming to photography, I bought Canon 7D with pair of lenses and other stuff,
now i want buy another one, Canon MACRO 100mm USM L lens.
Im "working" on online photo gallery, going slowly but someday i will finish it.

Soon there will be update for FLV Player, i will remove old stuff from portfolio and add new music.

All that stuff can take a while, because i have few games to play Diablo 3, Far Cry 3, Crisis 2.

right-bottom time display is not affected it shows current time of video.

Today i've done workaround for Firefox mouse delta (mouseWheel)
not working in Flash 8 content deployed in HTML with wmode="transparent".

Warning !!!

This methods are tested and working only for now with SWFObject for flash content,
further testing with AC_RunActiveContent is required.

What you need:
Notepad or any code editor (i'm using Adobe Dreamweaver 5.5)
SwfObject.js (JavaScript file)

This code is placed in html head:

<script type="text/javascript" src="scripts/swfobject.js"></script>
// fl_mov is an id of our div in html
<script type="text/javascript">
var flashvars = {};
var params = {wmode:"transparent"};
var attributes = {};
swfobject.embedSWF("whats_new.swf", "fl_mov", "1016", "500", "9.0.0", "expressInstall.swf", flashvars, params, attributes);
//
// get our flash movie object
var flashMovie;
function init() {
if (document.getElementById) {
flashMovie = thisMovie("fl_mov");
}
}
// wait for the page to fully load before initializing
window.onload = init;
//
if(!(document.attachEvent)) {
window.addEventListener( "DOMMouseScroll" , handleWheel, false);
}
//function fired on browser mouse wheel
function handleWheel(event) {
var deltas = event.detail;
callExternalInterface(deltas);
}
function callExternalInterface(pp) {
thisMovie( "fl_mov" ).mousewheelHandler(pp);
}
//returns movie element, different behavior in different browsers
function thisMovie(movieName) {
if (navigator.appName.indexOf("Microsoft") != -1) {
return window[movieName]
} else {
return document[movieName]
}
}
</script>

This Part is placed in html body:

<div id="fl_mov">
<div>

Here is an AS2 code:

import flash.external.ExternalInterface;
ExternalInterface.addCallback( "mousewheelHandler" , mousewheelHandler);
var instance:Object = null;
var method:Function = mousewheelHandler;
var wasSuccessful:Boolean = ExternalInterface.addCallback( "mousewheelHandler" , instance, method);
//this function is fired on Firefox mousewheel event
//value passed to this function is mouse delta, a Number
//targeting variable, is an TextField
function mousewheelHandler(val:Number):Void {
if (val>0) {
targeting.scroll++;
} else {
targeting.scroll--;
}
}

and thats all.
If any questions arises please contact me.

Best Regards
Liquid

I'm trying to replicate this site which is made in Flash, in HTML+PHP+JS coding only,
it's a big challenge, of course some compromises will be there, there is no way to achieve 100%.

Having some free time and MouseEvent Component was updated to support addEventListener function,
for every event occured in the component, so syntax for listening the events has changed,
not anymore function binded to the timeline of the component,
now it's a freedom of placing the code wherever you want.

I'm very sorry it was done so late.
View Online Help for full changes.

Short AS 2.0 example:

var mouseObjectListener:Object = new Object ();
mouseObjectListener.onMiddleMouseDown = function(evt:Object) {
//code to execute
trace(evt.target + " :: onMiddleMouseDown");
}
_instanceName.addEventListener( "onMiddleMouseDown" , mouseObjectListener);
mouseObjectListener.onMiddleMouseUp = function(evt:Object) {
//code to execute
trace(evt.target + " :: onMiddleMouseUp");
}
_instanceName.addEventListener( "onMiddleMouseUp" , mouseObjectListener);
