Yes, I could have just bought new headphones, but for half the price of my first one, I get new headphones, and a device that holds eight times the amount of stuff. Plus, an internal rechargeable battery, so no more pissing through those at a rapid rate.
And bonus, the voice recorder is even better than the original. I might, MIGHT get back to recording Grey Matters netcasts again. I did one this afternoon, and am debating editing and posting it later. Although now I feel like I'm arriving late to the game, while before I was a little early. Now there's so many comic shows on the net, and mine is just one guy babbling.
