Maybe if you had a Cowon, BBE and Eq would have made it sound like an LCD2.  Time to upgrade from your home theater to a Cowon.

No! No! Sony and Sansa!

 

But in all seriousness, I just heard Cowon and jumped in. XD

My hatred has subsided. It has turned to Korean pop music and Justin Bieber... Off topic, but he's popular in Korea. Just saying... 

 

The fight against Monster is small compared to the fight against Bieber

No really i couldn t believe it but you know maybe i got a broken pair or something, i mean they sounded great in the store but those i actually bought sounded like shit, it is not that the bass was too loud, but everything else was so low, really i would have needed subtitle to correctly understant the people speaking in the movie. After that i changed it for the bose quiet confort 15 and the sound was much better while not great but much better. But i changed them too because after 10 minutes using i got sick from the noise cancelling in it. I didn t have that problem with the Beat It was my first time with noise cancelling headphones and my last. Looks like i am among those  who can t stand it.

This and the entire cable section of the forum shows there are a number of people with astronomically more green matter than grey matter :P.

 

Nothing you can do to change it so might as well just ignore it :/



In that case the ED 8 would be better then the monster beats if that analogy would work.

 

I don´t find it that strange that someone preferrs A over B really. The ED 8 is lacking sub bass in my ipod touch that´s for sure so he may have a point. Especially if he doesn´t want mids and treble to take away from the bass. I preferr the signature of the Koss Porta Pro over the ED 8s on my Ipod touch.

The radio is the problem. Without it, nobody would be exposed to the Bieber virus. Who would torrent "Baby"?

I don't think it takes even that much effort.

Sorry that after being smacked in the face with word of mouth advertising by Monster that I am condescending. It won't happen again.

^ Now that's a qualified mea culpa if ever I've seen one. So Monster made you do it.

No, average consumers did. I could call them anything I want on here (whilst being fearful of the admins who wield godly powers) and they wouldn't know about it. 

 

On a completely unrelated side note. How does Radio Shack still exist? They are not as consumer friendly as Best Buy and not as electronics friendly as specialty stores. How is mediocrity profitable?

I say this after intending to spend $10 on parts for a Cmoy and walking out after having spent $41.82. Why in the hell do alligator clips cost $8?!

No, it was your disdain for them based on their headphone choices. Fortunately their ignorance as you see it, also includes being blissfully unaware of your existence and this elitist little thread in an obscure internet forum.

Must we argue on a thread? As insignificant as I am, why do you choose to respond in a conflicting manner?

I am not trying to insult you, I am just trying to avoid this thread from derailing and killing an innocent person.
