I agree with the clamp, its a death grip..... I am used to the Beyerdynamic DT series and those super soft velour pads and perfect clamping force dt880smile.png

I still wouldn't get a pair for myself since I'm not in the mood to pay $30 usd for that kind of sound. Maybe $15..but $30? ehhh

That's true, but they're still pretty nice for stock earbuds. And considering that the old iBuds also sold for $30?

I remember getting my first ipod (3rd gen) the one with 4 buttons, still my favorite. But the earphones that came with those hurt my ears so much, I'm pretty sure I immediately got some Sony iem's that I still have today, don't even know what model they are, but they were going for the same price as the iBuds on their own. I don't know as much about iPods today, but can you buy one without the included earphones? Seems like that wouldn't be good business for apple, but it would be nice to not have to pay for something that is going to sit in the box unused.

The earpods were surprisingly good-sounding to me too. If I'm paying for earphones though, they better have some noise isolation, and the earpods don't provide that.

 

Also, what the pho.

“Apple’s switch to paper-based speaker cones may be the source of their advertised improved low and mid-range response.”

Came across this video on Grado Labs Facebook page. Not sure if it belongs in this forum also I haven't heard of them. But they are using/wearing SR60i’s.

Lots of HD 25s around in Cambridge.

post #8514 of 11252

While it's cool they are wearing the SR-60i's - those would be almost entirely useless in a live recording session (as shown) - typically you want at least a little isolation. 

 

*shrug*

I don't understand things like that. But it does make sense you wold want some isolation. But this is " Headphone Sightings " and I saw headphones other than Beats and Bose.

Visited a school, and only saw Beats, Sony XB series, Sol republic, and Bose.

post #8517 of 11252

Oh, and not to mention these things...

While looking for a picture, found out they were rated 1.5 stars at best buy! What a surprise!

Damn rap has kids thinking more base makes for better sound..

post #8519 of 11252
Not necessarily better sound, but it does add a bit of "life" when an analytical response isn't needed. It's 'bass', also. wink.gif

Saw a kid stocking shelves at Walmart wearing HD 202s and a guy at Panera with Bose AE2. People just camp out at Panera all day.
