I would not, but since Wanted is so keen on the looks... so I guessed the sound would make him happy, since Wanted probably doesn't have such a trained ear. I have lots of friends with Beats and and Boses and after listening to all my headphones/ earphones they stated they are all bad :(

i have a question if i get the : http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002J9H9WC/ref=ord_cart_shr?ie=UTF8&m=A1729W3053T57N

thats 240 rather then 299 is it fake?

and is there standard 1 year warrenty for the headphone?

 

and if i get this: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001N84MVG/ref=ord_cart_shr?ie=UTF8&m=A1B45FIBP2TU2

will it cover the head phones or no for example fringes cracks on the headphone it self

If you're so insistent about looks, my two cents is that the Beats still look over-the-top-ugly, though I know appearances are purely subjective, if you are caring about what others think, again, my two cents.

 

Anyway, you're going to get (and already recieved) a pretty unanimous opinion against Beats' sound...

Mitkooo is giving you really good advice.

For durability and sound.  You could save a few cents and get the older Um1 stage monitors.  But really these balanced armature monitors are the way to go in the $100.00 price area.

I've had my westone 2 for 4 years, I think westone are pretty durable. I would go with a used UM1

Sigh. I'm Asian and I don't gel my hair. It's something called a haircut. Do not wrap your earphones around your player. Do use a case (especially if they come with the earphone). Disregard the looks of a headphone and just buy an in-ear. If you're buying to look cool, you'll look like every other dumb Asian out there who bought into the Beats by Dr. Dre hype that I get to point and laugh at (I see a lot of those on campus).

 

As for the Westone UM1 recommendation, yes, it's great for airplane rides but no, I would not listen to them off the airplane. The sound signature is just not that fun or engaging and the bass response is very much minimal until about 150Hz or so. I do believe the Westone 1 is the replacement for the UM1 so it may or may not be better. Isolation is probably the best part about the long Comply P-series tips that Westone uses.

1 thing i hate about headphones[full] is it messes up my gelled hair lol im asian i need to gel it lol

 


Asians gel their hair? I must be doing it wrong...along with my relatives and Asian friends...

 

Hold on, I've seen a couple gelled Asian dudes. Ironically enough with Beats. I wanted to smack them after seeing their pomposity.

and also can you guys check this out for me: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001DERZK0/ref=s9_simh_gw_p23_i1?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_r=0BJ8ASM49YW3CJGC1Y3X&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=470938631&pf_rd_i=507846

 

or the IE6????


None of us have heard the Teknines. They might sound great, they might not. Sumflow probably thinks they'll sound like garbage.  Care to take the plunge? They look nice.

 

And wrapping the cable around your iPod is the easiest way to break them south of intentionally killing them or stepping on them.

 

The SF5s sound decent. Probably one of the better ones you'll think look good if your definition of good looking is shiny. Haven't heard the IE6s. I also recommend the C751 if you can "get past their looks". I personally really like their look in person. And they sound pretty good for the genres you listed. Not too familiar with this price range otherwise.

 

I'd recommend the Turbine Pros, but you won't find them for cheap without getting a fake.

and how should i wrap or store my headphones

post #57 of 128

screw all of this... im going to tell you not what you want but what you need. First and foremost... you said you wanted IEM's, then you post Beats by dre, an over the ear headphone. Heres my verdict, the dre's are garbage when it comes to sound quality and will break down on you. If you want a good pair of earphones, go with sennheiser IE8, which has replacement cables so that when they do break, you can only just buy the cables. There is also ultimate ear super fi's at a lower cost and triple fi's at a higher price. thats what i would recommend to you. BUT if it was me, i would get me a pair of live wires custom seeing that they actually cost only as much as a IE8 and are custom... ^_^

Dude, definitely get the teknines and wrap them gently around 3 fingers and store them in the soft pouch that comes with them.

 

...

 

That should pretty much end this thread.

He's....not serious. I hope. Just get them and be done with it. You won't find anything better looking, I guess.

 

And the above is right.
