David Tea(m) Time with Kat

It’s Friday again, that means it is time for our weekly employee interview series that we have dubbed “Tea(m) Time”! Today, help us welcome Kat to our team in Berlin!

Specifics: Kat, from Scotland, Community team – support specialist

Was relocating difficult?: Nope, the SoundCloud HR team made it easy!

Favorite thing about Berlin: Night clubs / Night life / Electronic music!

Favorite thing about working at SoundCloud: Meeting all the diverse individuals at the company

Favorite sound: Reverberating bass from outside a night club before you go inside

Here are some of Kat’s favorite sounds on the ‘Cloud:

“One everyone here is aware of, but Maedels With a Microphone was awesome to listen to when I was still dreaming of moving to Berlin as they capture sounds and do spoken word podcasts about this wonderful city.

My friend Krysia is a student at Glasgow School of Art and she makes amazing sounds for her sculpture pieces and installations. She’s a Berlin & electronic music enthusiast too.

And

Soundwalk Collective are a collective based in Berlin and New York, and do live, often venue specific recordings which can become temporary or permanent sound installations. My favourites, obviously, are the Berghain studies, sounds from the vibrations and resonances from areas in the club.”

    Like the other reviewer mentioned the bezel casio watches is a bit too shiny depending on the light which can make it look like cheap chrome. Not exactly bad and it depends on how the light hits it, but it may not be your thing.I was concerned this watch might be too thick casio watches because of a review of this watch with the metal band – but I found it to be in the same range as other watches I own. Certainly not as chunky as a Casio Atomic Solar G-Shock. The titanium is quite light. I tend to like watches with some heft so for me this might be a slight drawback, although I like the idea of extra strength. Not that I ever have or expect to break a watch case!I don’t know how other chronometers work but casio watches I expected the dials to spin more. On this one they don’t – the second hand does most of the main timing with a smaller dial keeping track of the minutes and if a button is pushed, the fractions of a second in 0.2 sec increments. I thought all the dials would spin simultaneously but maybe that is how chronometers work.When I first set up the watch I thought the casio watches function dial was broken. Turns out all it needed was a full charge. So don’t despair until you’ve charged the watch up fully. The manual was short, but I found unlike the other reviews, that it had as much as I needed to know in it including how to center the date in the date window.The watch has a great and unusual combination of casio watches for men solar power, perpetual calendar, plus chronometer and alarm. The alarm is too quiet and not practical to wake up to as others have said. It might work if you’re awake and cooking something.I got this watch from the Watch Spot which delivered it really really fast with no problems.I decided I really didn’t like the original brown casio watches for men leather band no matter how much I tried, it just seems like it is made of cheap leather. So I replaced it with a 20mm black Kevlar band found on Amazon for around 20 bucks, and presto – it looks fabulous and like an entirely new watch! I love it now: Kevlar, titanium and steel what more do you want for under $300? I always loved the midnight blue face of the dial and with the modern band it looks like a much more expensive Breitling now, with great solar functionality. I’m also considering a black waterproof leather band with the dual raised ridges as an alternate band. If you get this watch I’d really recommend springing for a better band.I purchased this watch in December of 2010 as casio watches for men a dress watch for my travels within and outside the US. I am a watch lover and do own a very nice, fine, expensive watch, but due to the places I travel and also the current economic conditions, I prefer to wear a watch that will not catch too much attention.Not sure if I will not catch attention as this casio watches for men watch has quickly become one of my favorites. I have gotten so many positive comments and I’ve only been wearing it for one month. I agree with those who have stated that for all intents and purposes this watch has a black face and not blue. It takes quite a bit of sunlight at the perfect angle to make the blue tone make its appearance.From a functionality standpoint, this watch is casio watches for men not meant to be either a chronograph or an alarm. The chronograph is way too complicated and cumbersome to set and activate. By the time you pull out the crown and move the bottom indicator to CHRONO mode, the event you want to time may be over. As for the alarm function, it’s not loud enough–at least for me. The rotating bezel is a very useful tool for measuring approximate time spans. I use the bezel quite a bit when I’m taking meds every few hours.If you plan on using this watch for time and date casio watches for men only, it really is a magnificent tool. I love the fact that it is an analog watch, and my favorite part is that is has a perpetual calendar. When you set the date and time, you actually use the “second” hand to set the current month. Then you use the “chronograph” hand to set the year in relation to the last leap year–1 year after, 2 years after etc…. This means that if you keep the watch powered up, it will keep the correct date on display until the year 2100! I love having an analog watch that doesn’t make me check if it’s the 31 or 1 of every month.I have many watches that I really like, but I hate to wear them to work for fear that the crystal or case will get scratched.casio Watches I decided I needed a watch with no sentimental value to worry about. In looking for a watch the criteria I was looking for included solar power movement, perpetual calendar, and a bezel. I also wanted something that would be comfortable to wear. The fact that the case is titanium (and therefore quite light for its size) s just a bonus.I can honestly say that I have a casio Watches small number of watches in my collection, and believed that I had reached my peak on finding watches that really caught my eye. But this was one watch that I had already been eyeing for quite a while. I had to buy it, and I did. And it is stunningly beautiful. One of the most attractive watches that I have. Citizen however, has always made some of the nicest watches I have ever seen. But this was one that I was hoping it looked as great as it did on the website. Powered by light and being perpetual, casio Watches I believed I would have a difficult time setting it to the correct date. But nevertheless it was a breeze. Now it will never need a battery. One of the most power robbing features of any watch would be the alarm which I use constantly. But I certainly will not worry about this one. I can use it all I want since it will recharge itself again, and again. Just a typical day at the office (or outdoors), will recharge it to operate for several weeks, if not months. Unbelievable !! And at a 200 meter water resistance, I can use it swimming, snorkeling, and it may work just as well for scuba diving.It will look great whether you are relaxing by the side of the pool, at a classy dinner, or at a formal business meeting. Several casio Watches people have already told me to take it off so they can look at it. I feel great whenever somebody says that. Its a really beautiful watch. Worth the price. Maybe it is my love for watches with brown leather bands. I don’t know. But if you do so, I would highly recommend it.After lots of research I bought this watch.casio Watches Let’s face it, a Timex will provide accurate time but it’s the look & style that really matter and this watch has what I wanted (a Brietling appearence) but could aford. It’s a masculine and classy watch all the way. I have no need for the alarm or stop watch functions so that doesn’t matter to me.looks distinguished, well made, great value,casio Watches easy to read (day or night), nice functions, and best of all- you don’t have to let some moron man-handle your timepiece when changing the battery on a regular basis!This watch is a great value for the price.casio Watches Overall I might have given it 4 stars because of the shininess of the band and the bezel, but when you factor in the price and the features it’s a 4 plus. It’s a good looking watch with a handsome deep blue face that looks black and dark grey dials and shiny bezel. I found the leather band a little cheap looking and feeling at first – maybe a bit too shiny or something but it seems to have gotten better looking with wear. From a distance the combination of the leather band, titanium case and dark blue face is quite nice.Personally I LOVE this change (once I figured out how to set it). Other reviewers had complained about inadvertently changing the mode when pulling their hand out of a pocket, etc. Now, clicking the crown in casio data bank watchesthe zero position does NOTHING. Which is how it should be. It looks like Citizen listened to user feedback, which speaks miles about them. They now need to update their documentation to match.Great watch, we’ll see how it does with more time on the wrist, but I wanted to let everyone know about my findings ASAP!
