I told her that maybe she just wanted to talk and the deer provided her with an excuse.
I think a lot of people who post on this forum just want to participate and interact. Yeah, they could find the info and never talk to anybody. I'm sure some really are just lazy. But you gotta admit, there are a zillion unnecessary, meaningless posts of every stripe in these discussions. How many times can one poster chime in to denounce a particular phone. Do they really need to do that? Since they're not being lazy, is their pot-stirring somehow more ok?
I guess I should copy this to Word so I can post it everytime this comes up, but I only really needed to say it once.
I couldn't have said it better myself. If everybody discourages posting, then nothing ever gets done. We get a few opinions and nothing more. On top of that, forums can be fun and all that!
I myself love forum boards for the info they possess and the conversation in general, plus sometimes, getting answers to a persons peculiar situation is required. Bluntly: I hate it when people bitch people out for posting and wasting their time doing so, when they could have just answered the question.
Next in line, OP: If you like the beats ,you seem to like bass heavy headphones and Isolation. Consider Sony headphones, for starters, my MDR-V6 are great build quality, almost capable of lasting forever if you ask me, and the sound is top notch for the dollar. You'll get slighly recessed mids and highs, but really good bass. And by slighty, I mean in comparison to headphones like the HD205, it's better, and ATH-AD700, phones known to be lacking in bass (although I disagree), is slightly worse. I know I reccomend these phones a lot but I want to stick with what I know.
To clarify, I did not like the beats. My girlfriend did, but there's bound to be headphones out there that beats them for her and I'm hoping our head-fi meed does reveal something about her tastes. She's probably more concerned with comfort. They look terrible, don't fit right, sound _OKAY_, and have apparent quality issues. For 300$? NFW
Alternatively, if you can get around the comfort of them (it didn't bother me and I intend to buy some) you can get some Grado's. I audiotioned what I recall were S125's.
Also in regards to the "cloth" or sheathed cable, it's for the better. It adds a bit of weight and rigidty to prevent tangling. You'll thank god you'll never have to untangle a headphone mess again. Sounds to me the denons are high quality cans. After I pick an amp and a pair of grado's I may stop there to see what I'm missing.
