4PM Coffee: Raspberry Pi Music Edition

It's 4PM Coffee Time after a Long Weekend!

First of all, spending an overnight in a non-air conditioned house isn't fun.

From Sunday to Monday, we'd spent time with family, but the house we stayed in... well, I guess they didn't believe in using AC. Props to them for saving money, but I was miserable.

Sitting around dripping in your own sweat wasn't fun.

TFZ Series 1S Earbuds Initial Review

I was pretty eagerly awaiting the $39 TFZ Series 1S Earbuds when they showed up today.

I originally bought the TFZ Series 1S earbuds looking for more of the IEM look and feel than either conventional earbuds (like the SkullCandy series or even the Shure SE-215's) offered while still providing a decent soundstage for the price. I also wanted to see what the “Dual Loop Dynamic Dual Chamber” feature was all about.

The TFZ Series 1S earbuds are a low cost earbud that has similar style to high end IEMs from companies such as Ultimate Ears, and in the end, quite a decent replication of what one might expect from a low cost solution like this.

4PM Coffee Thoughts: 3 Hours Of Sleep

What's On My Mind:
How To Function On 3 Hours Of Sleep A Night

For most people who have a 9 to 5 and family, like myself, there's only one time during a 24 hour period that you can get this time from:

Just Ordered: TFZ Series 1S IEM Earbuds #004 (Clear/Purple)

I'm really excited about a new purchase I've just made. Many of you know I'm a bit of an audiophile, and my quest for good sound just got another addition.

The TFZ Series 1S Earbuds are single driver, dual chamber earbuds that have received a lot of good reviews since Massdrop began offering them.

The Skullcandy Ink'd earbuds were more of an impulse buy than anything else.

I was out and about over the weekend and realized that I'd left both the Shure SE-215 and Skullcandy Smokin' Buds at home. Since I was using my phone to feed the beats into my ears, I figured that the $14 Skullcandy Ink'd would be sufficient as a secondary set of earbuds.
