Did headphones really peak in 2018?

2021.12.03 01:42 Joman767 Did headphones really peak in 2018?

To be more specific, did bluetooth noise cancelling headphones that cost less than 500 dollars peak in 2018?
I bought a pair of Bose Quietcomfort 35 IIs back in 2018 before I knew anything at all about headphones because I was sick of mine going bad and I had just tried a pair of Sennheisers with god awful "active noise cancelling", terrible fit, and awful sound. These things absolutely blew me away. The sound was amazing. I barely noticed a running lawn mower. If it weren't for how noticeably effective the noise isolation is, they are so comfortable I could probably forget I was wearing them.
Over the last three years though I have noticed some minor annoying things with them which make me wish there was something just that tiny bit better. When you're connected to two devices the sound drops out for just a split second every 10-15 seconds. Just enough to be noticeable. The earpads themselves tear open and become unusable after about a year, so I have to replace them which isn't too awful but I feel like it shouldn't happen as often as it does. The bluetooth can also drop out on rare occasion and it charges using a micro usb which I really don't want to need a dedicated charger for.
That said, in the last three years nothing better has been released. Bose has come out with the 700s which are more of its own thing that really only improves on mic quality and ease of use which isn't where my problems lie. The QC 45 IIs should be an improvement but it seems like they cared so much about some tiny improvement in the noise isolation that they let the sound quality drop? Bose what's going on over there? Sony had a somewhat close competitor with the XM3s but where I would expect an improvement with the XM4s which most sources claim to actually be better than the QC 35 IIs, I just found more disappointment. The earcups are too shallow to keep my ears from touching them. The sound quality is very noticeably worse right out of the box. The noise cancelling is claimed to be better overall but it doesn't seem to match the 35s with people's voices which I would think should matter a lot. They also sound like everything comes from so much closer in that it gives me a headache. I feel like people confuse the Sony XM4s better overall noise cancelling on paper with being a better pair of headphones.
It's a little infuriating but I just want these headphones again with such minor improvements and no sacrifices but all we have gotten after almost four years is side grades. Am I missing something better or is anyone else frustrated with me?

2021.12.03 01:42 FourBloodMoons My brain blue screens?

My first post here, I don’t really know how to explain this particularly well. I was wondering if I’m the only one which has experienced this or if there’s anyone else out there. Ever since taking psychedelics I’ve had visual snow which I’ve come to live with over the past few months, but for a little while after i would have a fairly scary experience which was very similar to what happens when you’re falling asleep and you imagine yourself falling and you jump awake but instead this has replaced it entirely.
What happens is I’ll be falling asleep and having those half dreams whilst falling asleep and in them sometimes lsd visuals will occur or the dream itself or an image will become hyper realistic and get so strong and overwhelming that everything just cuts out and freezes and the last note of sound will go loud and constant for a second like as if it’s being overloaded. Basically exactly what you experience when you see a game crash, everything freezing and a massive BRRRRRRRRRR.
After this I’ll jolt and wake up with a massive headache. The scariest part of this is what I feel during the “blue screen”. It genuinely feels like I die for a moment. My brain literally crashes for a second and everything images sound freeze for a second with an intense feeling of nothingness. I’m describing this terribly but i have no idea how to. The only way I can describe this feeling is like dying.
In the past when I was a kid in which for example if I put my head in my arms and closed my eyes for a while and sorta stared into the flashing blobs of colour sometimes I would feel a kind of intensity when images would get stronger and I would unconsciously move my eyes and it would rid the feeling of pressure and reset the visual blobs.
My theory behind it is that my brain is essentially trying to enter the dream state of mind whilst being awake. Essentially where all my brains lobes and centres are still fully operational and activated in a waking state in which I have not fallen asleep, yet attempting to dream making imagery very vivid which causes my brain to overload as its trying to process too much information at once and therefore blue screen.
So perhaps what is happening is while we’re im not fully asleep usually my brain is able to recognise that those images aren’t entirely real and that I’m in a semi-dream state and when they become too realistic it kinda forces it to stop for me it’s by diverting my eyes perhaps sort of refreshing or reminding my mind that the photons are to be interpreted from my eyes. By moving my eyes I’m changing the position that my eyes are taking in photons so therefore the brain must recognise it’s different so those images can’t be real and resets to reality. Perhaps all done to stop dream states occurring whilst still awake like with all the checks your body does to see if you’re sleep before causing sleep paralysis, checking if lobes of your brain are still active so it knows whether it’s okay to start relaying electrical signals to produce dreams because you wouldn’t want to start suddenly dreaming if you’re a little tired and close your eyes for 5 minutes at work or in class etc. even though you’re awake. So if you’re asleep, you aren’t interpreting every piece of information due to your state of consciousness and your lobes being deactivated and you’ll enter dreams and your REM cycles as usual.
I don’t experience this anymore, this used to happen multiple times a night but last time it occurred was about a month ago.
Sorry for the long winded post.

After Kyourei met the bow brothers she remembered that they aimed at her before and wanted revenge, in the last part of the second page she tells jin to aim at her seriously after she feels something off, she hesitates and says to Jin to "wait a minute".

2021.12.03 01:42 coloradogiant Sharp Pain On Side Of Right Knee when I Kneel down

Summary: Sharp "stabbing" pain located on the outer portion of my right knee when I kneel down.

More Info: I am a large 41-year-old male (height is 6'7, BMI 37) trying to get in better shape and have taken up running over the past 2 months. I'm progressing well and routinely run 3x per week for up to 45 minutes at a time.
However, since I've started running, I'm suffering from a strange new pain. I have a 2-year-old at home and often drop down to one knee to get to his level. However, whenever I kneel on my right knee, I often feel a sharp stabbing pain on the outer part of this same (right) knee.
The pain I feel is pretty severe (7 out of 10); however, it always goes away on its own within 30-60 seconds. The best explanation of the pain is it feels like I've kneeled on a sharp knife.
This area is not swollen and does not hurt otherwise, even when I run. I plan to raise this with my doctor during a routine physical next month but am hoping for an explanation of what might be causing this in the meantime.
I appreciate any help you can provide!

2021.12.03 01:42 BigRedBear423 Licensed Cosmetologist in TN working as an Esthetician and I have a few questions....

I've been a licensed Cosmetologist in Tennessee since 2012. I did hair for a little over 8 years before I decided to switch specialities to Esthetics. I've been working full time as an Esthetician for almost a full year now and I'm loving it so much. It has rejuvenated my passion for beauty and I feel like I have finally found my place in the industry. I put a lot of care in to my work and I thrive on making every client feel comfortable and beautiful in their own skin. That being said, I have noticed a kind of stigma with my licensing amoungst certain clients that don't understand how Esthetics is a part of my Cosmetology lisence. I'm also concerned with the possibility that certain spa's may not hire me in the future because they don't feel like my license covers the services they provide.
My big questions are: -How should I go about explaining this to my clients without sounding like I'm lying to them? -How can I make them feel more comfortable getting services done by me? -Should I go back to school for Esthetics just so I don't risk not being hired at certain spa's? -If I did go back to school, would I be wasting my time when I could just be getting the experience instead?
I love my job and I want to be the best I can be at it and go as far as I want in this industry. Any positive comments and feedback would be greatly appreciated for my peace of mind.

2021.12.03 01:42 dc_IV Thank goodness I bought my GW4C at Costco.com. Returning this POS just on general principle because of the shi$%y a$$ cheap watch bands!

I have a GW3 44mm and honestly the watch band is sturdy and so much BETTER than the GW4C watch band. Seriously Samsung? What is the BOM "hit" from a watchband that is the same quality as the GW3, and the GW4C is more money? Fuck you Samsung, really, just FUCK YOU.

2021.12.03 01:42 Okoba27 Darius Bazley is by far the worst starter in the NBA.

Darius Bazley the last 10 games: 5/6/1 on 26/25/60 shooting splits. In this 8 game loss stretch, he has only one more 3 than a turnover. His playstyle is essentially a point forward, if your point forward cant dribble, pass, shoot, drive, defend forwards, or do anything good on a basketball level. Tragic Bronson playstyle. It is a genuine miracle if he scores the basketball, and almost every time he touches it, it results in a turnover, a blocked shot or a fucking hoist that he prays to god hits the backboard. He also insists on dribbling the ball, off looking both SGA and Giddey and killing the fast break almost every time he grabs a rebound. I am saying this as someone who deadass watched most of the 7 - 59 hornets team. He is playing some of the worst basketball ive ever seen in my fucking life. Any positive stats he has is almost always contributed to our gang rebounding and interior defending. He plays like a point forward that cant do anything a point forward can do.

I bought some 10mg gummies and took one, set a time for 30 mins and i started feeling it 15 minutes in, from past experiences these dispo highs only last about 4 hours, while normal edibles I’ve had have taken 2 hours to hit but last 7-10 hours.
