Noob remarks... share your experiences

post #1 of 70
Thread Starter 
I was showcasing my HD650s off to my friend and the first things that he asked was

" do those go loud? " " do they have bass? " " do they block out noise? "

I'd be interested in hearing about other peoples experiences with noob comments.

For a split of a second I forgot I was on Head-Fi, discussing headphones.
Shock and awe, earwax and marshmallows

"Are those Bose?", my response-"No", then they say-"Why would you get those then? Bose is the besT"

"Are those noise cancelling?"

I was at Rat Shack today trying to find a cable(mini to rca) to temporarily use with my newly purchased Squeezebox and asked if they had anything better than the monster cable designed for the ipod.

The guy responded with something like "monster cable is the best there is, no need to look any further!"

I pulled my Tomahawk/ipod/alo jumbo cryo out of my pocket and showed it to him. His eyes bulged and he asked:

"what's that, a battery pack and how does that xlr connection work with the ipod and battery?"


I briefly explained what all of it was and how it worked and then he noticed my IEM's(shure e500) He said:

"those most be those new bose headphones so you can take advantage of all that equipment"

So my roomates n00b friends were having some sort of singing practice for some upcoming show. Let me call the singer Miss A, the guy with the laptop which has the song to be sung Mr.B.

B: Dang! You are going off in that second line, let me play the song and show you where

<Proceeds to play song>

A:I cant make out anything your laptop speakers suck, if only I can get some headphones

Since I had no other go but to sit and listen to the wonderful practice session, thought I might as well help out atleast a bit, so I proceeded to give her my HD465's.

A:Ooh, these look nice.

B:Man those are big, which ones are those

<I open my mouth to start saying sennheiser, but A goes>

A:These are those noise cancelling headphones that they use in studios for professional recording

<I choose to keep quiet>
<A connects the headphones to the laptop and starts listening to the song, and starts singing along with it, half way through the song, she goes>

A:Hey these don't block out noise, I can hear myself singing
<I just start telling her that these arent noise cancelling headphones, but she interrupts before I can start and says>

A:Oh I know whats happening, the laptops inbuilt microphone is picking up my singing and playing it back through the headphones, this must be how they do it in the studios

<I exit stage left>

l0l!!!!


Something really funny happened to me. I gave my mum my MS1's to try out (you know, so she could hear how good they are and realize they were worth $99)

The first thing she said was "They're not comfortable at all". I expected this. But when I turned around, I saw that she was wearing them backwards, with the grilles on her ears

This must be the best thing I've heard all day. Did you let her use it till the end of practise?

i forgot another

"This is '06, not '96, *****!"

in response to my gigantic ATH-900LTD headphones...

edit: sorry about the bleeps, but hey i'm just quoting.

i think "uninformed" is a better word than "noob". we're all civil here, after all..
