    I always found it pointless to buy headphones with more range than 20-20000

    You just don't really hear the other frequencies
    I can hear between 12-19k but in all honesty most studios cut everything below 15 Hz and above 22KHz so it's really dumb to get anything with more range than that.

    I am content with a $20 pair of headphones from the Walgreen's and an MP3 at >= 128 kbps

    this is not to say I will not accept better equipment if purchased for me, but you'd have to go with a full ensemble as I don't have top notch sound equipment

    Tonight I saw a new set of compositions from Rufus Reid. It was pretty special, and I am not familiar with the man's work. This will change.

    Haha, my headphones' frequency response ranges from 5hz-30khz. Overkill.

    Ok, so I've decided to listen to OK Computer again to see why everyone ever seems to love it and why it's viewed as one of the best albums of all time.

    I still don't see it. I mean, it's good, but it all kind of blends together in a monotonous pattern.

    I've listened to 3 of their albums if I recall, and I didn't really enjoy them all that much. As Sanius said, they're just... boring.

    Not mellow, boring. Difference being that mellow songs have character and aren't just one guy mumbling along to a slow going acoustic guitar line.

    An X-Files episode apparently took place in my town, and has Bryan Cranston in it... and is the role that got him on Breaking Bad.

    Also, opinions on the difference between ambient and atmospheric music?

    Gee, I think they overlap a lot, but if there had to be a distinction it would be that ambient would be reverb-y in general, while atmospheric would have synth pads and lots of textures. But it's pretty confusing, you could have a field recording of nature with textures, and also consider that ambient-like. I also have a feeling "ambient" tends to have percussion more often than "atmospheric".

    Why do you ask?

    Speaking of ambient anyone know of any artists like Oneohtrix Point Never? I've been looking for awhile now and only come up with Laurel Halo.

    Ambient is more song-like while atmospheric conveys a situation or place. If that makes sense.

    is "atmospheric" alone even used as a genre name? isn't it more like an added word to another genre like atmospheric black metal?
