I blame big subs in cars and trucks, rap music, dub step, and everyone thats unhealthily obsessed with loudness and bass.People keep buying super bass oriented headphones because they want that vision bluring, skull cracking bass you get by spending thouands on amps and subs in cars. Instead of good, balanced headphones (that respond well to eqing) they buy things like beats, and skull candy, that advertise as having extreme bass.Cause who cares how the music sounds when...
I think the thing making beats so popular is about 99.9% marketing. Theyre the most widely advertised headphone brand, and the big portion of the population that will buy them like as previously mentioned, only used ibuds before, so really almost anything will be better. The high price must obviously mean quality, and anything cheaper must be garbage. 5 years ago I went looking for my first set of decent headphones.

I think I might end up saving up and replace my aging, battered pro5v's for the pro700mk2 I liked the sound profile of my pro5s compared to m50s and it seems like the pro700s are similar, just way better. These little pro5s sound way better with the thicker padding, but after 5 years of nonstop 6hr a day 6 days a week they are wearing out. The left side has a rattle likely from a missing screw. So anyways, my question, pro700mk2 a good upgrade for crappy cheap pro5s, in...
Thats right, I just joined because of this thread, that I read from start to finish at work. The worst pair of headphones i wore were those crappy sony ones they packed with tape players amd cd players. The next worse were some headphones my dad had possibly from the 80s, I dont remember the brand, koss maybe? They were white and were spring loaded. When not worn the two ears would roll up with the band. They were open air and the ears were a dome grill. They had no...
