On the other hand...
Most people who don't own Bose don't want to get bashed to a pulp by defending them.
So what do they do?
They jump on the "idiot" bandwagon and start bashing Bose along with the rest of the idiots just to be "cool" or feel accepted, or to avoid becoming one of the bashed for saying nothing (he's not saying anything, so he must like Bose), even if they have never heard Bose products or even worse, never even heard of Bose at all.
I guess it all boils down to peer pressure which I've always accociated with being weak-minded.
I for one am quite capable of making up my own mind. I don't need someone to make it up for me. I can also come up with my own conclusions. I don't need someone to tell me what's good and what's not, nor do I allow people to push me and/or influence into something.
Have you ever heard Bose system?
Have you ever heard any mid-fi stuff?
How long have you been in this hobby?
If you have heard Bose, can you honestly say that they sound good or even ok.
There is a good reason ppl bash BOSE, albeit different ppl have different reasons, but for those who bash BOSE for the sake of the sound quality, I stand by them 100% as I have 'experienced' the 'BOSE magic' and can honestly say life is better without BOSE.
If you are really sick of these talks about how horrible BOSE products are, just bring your hornet, or whatever amp you have, along with your HD650 to any Bose store and listen to their speaker and then listen to your headphone with the same music. Unless you are tone deaf, you will 'get it' (I consider HD650 mid-fi in sound quality)
edit: I just noticed you have K701...bring that to your demo instead.
