I will never say I am an audiophile. I just DJ, mix and appreciate all kinds of music. However through out my life I have been exposed to great audio equipment such as Bose, Panasonic (80s), Aiwa (90s), and Sony.
I have had different pairs of headphones since the mid 80s from cheap to uber expensive. I had some that were cheap and awesome, and others that were expensive and thrown in a corner. I really just got back into the quest for multiple pairs of headphones due to weekend mixes I do, and recording of vinyl to wav format.
I don't wear them as a fashion statement, but to listen. I think with my XD200's I have started a trend at work. People wanna compare Skullcrushers to my XD200's, and the SC's seem to miss the boat. I had a similar looking Koss go up against what I think are crappy headphones I have, and Koss sounded so hollow. I have even been offered a trade for some SC's. I don't like my XD200's but we only sell the XD100's and the price was the same on Amazon.
Now I keep hearing some idiot at work bragg that he gonna get some Beats Headphones and blow me out. No biggie I said. I know they use monster cables and such. But alas I ordered some MDR-V6's from Newegg last night until 2011 when I get the CD900ST's aka MDR-V7's. I may even try out the V900HD's as a back up.
Now, from you guys are any of these SC's or Dre Beats worth a shot. I kinda like what Dre and Monster have going, but I wanna know will they be as good as V6's or CD900ST's (MDR-V7) or maybe Sennheiser coz my fiend love those headphones.
I see 4 and 5 star reviews but it seems to be part of the hype for the Beats heaphones...I think Id get more truthful responses here.
