|Hey! What happened to "but for me it's all about the sound, I could care less what the thing looks like."
Yeah, if say I go to the gym, or when I go out downtown Toronto.
You will never see me wear any grado's in my neighborhood; people will stare at me and laugh. People are so ignorant these days, and stupid, If they had any idea what the grado's sounded like, they wouldn't be laughing. I bet the majority of people think that SONY makes the best headphones, just because they style them nice.
The mentality of the mainstream with any electronics is, IF it looks good on the outside than it must be good on the inside. This is how company market there products, they trick the consumer by there products outer apprence. That's why Sony sells there cheap POS receivers like crazy over here. They put lots of buttons on it, and big fancy on screen graphics. Consumers love that ****, and then never get to hear real sound. Heck I hear people bragging about how good there SONY speakers are, these type of people if you mentioned the name ONKYO, Marantz, or Paradigm to them, they would be scratching there head.
Mainstream consumer only knows names like SONY, Panasonic, JVC etc....
You tell the average Joe that Phones can sound better than speakers they would laugh. Why cause all they ever heard was some POS sony, walmart brand, Panasonic headphones.
Anyhow I have rambled off topic long enough, sorry about that.
