Winter EDC!

Well, here's a video of what I'm carrying during the winter. I find videos a little easier than the normal writing, and it's easier to show things and talk.

Caffeinated Gum

Just a quick heads up. I think it comes out to just over $1 a pack when you buy it on Amazon. (Then again, you have to buy 25 packs at once, I bought it along with two other friends to help share the costs.) At $1 a pack, each piece is 20 cents. Each piece provides roughly the same caffeine as a cup of coffee. Therefore, in terms of caffeine content alone, it is a lot cheaper.

Custom IEMs (Inner Ear Monitors)!

Basically, for around $9, with shipping, I was able to create a set of IEM covers custom-fitted to my ears. (IEM is an inner ear monitor, which goes inside your ear canal. A earbud sits on the outside of that canal.)

They look a little strange, but are incredibly comfortable. I do not feel anything inside my ear canal, and on the outside, only feel a slight drag from the weight of the IEMs themselves. Currently, I'm using JVC FXD80 IEMs, and the custom mold helps accentuate the bass, open up the soundstage, while providing greater isolation than before. This mold is easy to do, and only took me around 30 minutes.
