I wonder if you listen to hiphop. I don't cept the likes of Nujabes compilations, but I still respect the artists.

Awesome.


this guy got it right.


 


Grado and Monster are apples and oranges, but I thought the SR 325is were the worse headphones I ever wore in my life.I really did regret spending that $300. After a year of it, it was just too much. Very unexpected result seeing how I liked the SR 60s.

As far as rap goes, Dr. Dre is among the best. Since you don't know that, I just wanna share that :). He has near universal respect from rap fans kinda like Eminem.

Let me state for the record that I don't know if Dre is any good as a producer or an artist. I don't listen to rap and I couldn't care less whether he's great or rubbish.

Let me also state that I do know just because someone is paid to do something, it doesn't mean they're particularly competent at it. Keeping on the topic of the music industry, it's plain to see that some singers (e.g.: Ashlee Simpson, of the top of my head) can't really sing, and I wouldn't lend their words much weight when it comes to vocal technique, etc.

The bashing of Beats on Head-fi sounds like people arguing over which is the better artist: Mendellssohn or BB King.

 

I prefer Mendellssohn. More traditional and less bass

Thank you for sharing, although I really don't care about Dre's music (no offense, just reiterating).

Sorry to post into such an old topic... but did he just buy the Beats because they are "durable"? I mean, sound is mostly subjective... but durability...?

As the makers of some of the most highly regarded (if now discontinued) headphones, I wouldn't say that at all about Grado. However, I do agree that they can be horrid.  The first time I tried a pair of HF-1s, admittedly paired with poor gear for them, I thought they were awful. I now use what amounts to a clone of the most famous Grados, and they are one of my favourite pairs of headphones. Through suitably high-end gear, they are totally different.

sorry for reviving old thread. but I have to laugh at buyers of Monster products. Everyone knows these artists are using sony mdr-v6 or mdr-7506 in studios since the 80s.

post #99 of 102

The price is ridiculous, I'll agree with that. And to anyone buying these for durability... are you kidding? They are known for being broken so easily. I also agree that using these in studios would be dumb and inaccurate. But I will say... If they were around $120-$150, I would consider buying them. I listen to hip-hop and LOVE my bass. Tried the M50, it definitely doesn't have enough bass, and the huge bass is what they're known for. To all you who don't care about bass, of course you won't like them or the sound, they're pretty much geared for a bass-lover.
