I was just there getting some dress shirts, there were two pairs, both were $35.

Sweet, thanks for the heads up. I didn't have time to swing by today but I'm totally picking a pair up tomorrow if they have them here. I wanted to try a pair for comparison's purpose at some point anyway, tho I'll probably turn it into a gift later.

(Besides, trying them out myself is expensive. I like it much more when you do it for us! :)

 

If only there were 36 hours to a day! There's so many new phones I wouldn't mind hearing.

Ok, will add it to the list of things to change with the next update.

If they don't have them at yours let me know, and I could probably get them and ship them to you.

Hi ,

I read your blog on the headphone lists and based on that i recently bought an Audio technica ath m50.The headphone is really great.Amazing music experience but i have a problem with its style. It applies a pressure around my ear and feel little heavy. Can u give me a suggestion to rectify this problem if not suggest an equivalent headphone with 150 bugs(wired/wireless) that has lighter weight???

I might take you up on that, gonna check another nearby Marshall tomorrow first tho. The closest one to me just had a couple Uptowns, good discount on those too ($50, as opposed to $100 on Amazon), not really what I was looking for tho (and they only had them in brown/white).

PM me if you want. The Downtowns are brown at the Marshall's near me. They also have a bunch of Metros for $20. I can provide receipts if necessary to prove that I will make $0 on this.

 

They also tend to have the SHE3580 for ~$5.

The Bose are reviewed in the first post, I think. Maybe not the OE2, but a Bose model. By all accounts, the Bose will isolate better, but sound worse. The CAL! will sound better, but isolate worse. For what it's worth, I just sent my girlfriend's CAL!s in for warranty service, and they were also very pleasant and helpful.

Right, I reviewed the original OE.

Thanks man, I ended up finding them at a second Marshall's I went to today (got in right before closing), I appreciate the offer tho. Will probably post a comparison against the Koss DJ100 and the M-80 later. biggrin.gif

Please do! The price is so great, I'm sort of tempted, though I really don't need them. They look so comfy, too!

post #3840 of 4415
Oh yeah, they're very comfy, I had briefly tried them out before and that stuck out to me. I don't remember a whole lot about the sound but the memory of the pillowy pads remains.
