Ordered a Sennheiser HD 202 II


So, I needed a good pair of over-the-ear headphones, ideally with a nice piece of microphone as well. Unfortunately, among the ones that fulfilled both the requirements, none impressed me enough. So, in the end I decided to not spend a lot on a pair of Audio Technicas, and ordered the Sennheiser HD 202 II which I got for around $25 after reading a ton of positive user as well as expert reviews. Should get it on Monday if things go as planned. A bit eager to try a new kinda sound. I mostly listen to punk rock, hard rock and a little bit of metal anyway. Didn’t need an audiophil’istic one to begin with, though I’m setting my expectations high indeed for the HD 202 II.

Ahh, is this like the first post of the year?

First of all, it feels ridiculous to realize that this is the first post of this year on my personal blog. Inconsistent periods really piss me off. So, I got this beast on the 27th of January, when it was still unavailable in India. I got it from an eBay seller. Finally, I moved on to a new phone, leaving behind my 1.5yrs old, shitty, Motorola Fire XT that was running (and hanging) on Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

Flew some kites today!


Today was Viswakarma Puja. People (especially the youth) here go crazy over kites on 17th September every year. I’ve been flying kites since I was probably 7. My performance was poor today by my standards, though. It was the first time I flew kites in 2013, so I was definitely not at the peak of my form. Plus, the wind was slow throughout the day. I tend to perform better under fast wind. Anyway, no qualms. It was fun, deciding to get those kites and the manja (thread) yesterday while returning from school. I’ve got 4 kites left. I’ll probably fly them this coming Sunday. 🙂
