Non-audiophile reactions to high-end headphones - Page 390  

post #5836 of 6431

Korn

Disturbed

Slipknot

Megadeath

Judas Priest

Metallica

 

There are probably a ton of bands a lot of people might consider 'Hard Rock' that Metal has claimed. 

 

It really depends on what you define Metal as, I suppose.

Well, I consider GnR metal. Does anyone else?

metal underground lists 15000+ bands they are calling "metal"  so yeah I'd say there are a few of them out there, some coss over is inevitable.

 

Currently I am listening to Sepultura - Chaos A.D. with Fear Factory, Pantera, and Krokus queued up next. L3000.gif

 

P.S.  I let a buddy listen to my new DAP, was playing Sepultura and he asked "what h*** is this?  Sounds like someone killing a cat with chain saw."  I had to switch it to ZZ top for him.

Aliens. Definitely aliens.

Men respond better to music properties since they are still basically the result of a hunter evolution. Imaging in particular, since when you are out hunting at night it is desperately important to know where noises come from.  This obviously only true to a degree.  There are a few women headgear enthusiasts - but they are not the majority.  

 

Its been said that music is the evolution of a baby's cry, so men and women perhaps prefer different aspects.

It all comes down to preference...

The misses didn't understand why i spend so much until i let her try out my desktop rig....i no longer have majority access to my desk

 

Here's a pic i took when she kicked me off =(

 

 

 

She likes the K702s A LOT...thinks my DT990 600ohm  sound like beats by dre (so offended)

 

...just sold my K702s today and have the HE-500 coming in...might hide those.

Going back to car speak for a post

I'm seriously thinking about putting a good stereo on my '83 40 series cruiser except there are a few issues:

An old 4L diesel monster and no effective sound isolation from the cab and engine

Not a lot of space in the cab (no subs big enough to be heard above the engine)

The worst acoustics ever to be put in a car. The only non-metal objects in the cab are me, the floor mats and the seats

So yeah, seriously thinking about it

 

PS: My Mum's Merc C180 has a pretty darn good stock stereo in it. Even has a subwoofer (that uses the boot as an enclosurebiggrin.gif) and smooth sounding tweeters. Sounds pretty good. I wish I could say the same about my dad's car.... Sony 6.5" tweeters (not actually, though it sounds like it). I swear they have crossover connected with a high pass filter

To save space I took the photo out of the quote, but the photo of the girl on the wall above your computer tongue_smile.gif is pretty funny. I respect the choice of new headphones and the sell of the k702. I have k701 and would love to trade them for some he-400 even. I do have some YH-100 that I like better than my 701, so I'm sure you will like orthos better too. Anyhow, i was thinking how nice it would be for you to get the misses her own headphones, one of my choices would be Sennheiser  hd-598 as they kinda look like girl headphones but nobody has much bad to say about them. Also, I bet the sound signature is almost opposite from the HE as far as headphones are concerned, and shell listen to your HE and think they don't sound like hers and leave yours alone. Problem solved.

That's rough. I would start with the necessities and move on from there. I was thinking some marine speakers and system for weather. You need power to those highs and mid/midbass speakers to get them over that engine, something like

Had a friend listen to my HD600 last night. He was blown away! 

 

I'm always saddened when guys who write/record music have never heard amazing headphones before.

She took my Turbine Pro Coppers but that's ok i have my customs that she won't be able to use =D. I asked her about overhead headphones too and she said she wanted something that goes in her ear as the overhead ones would ruin her hair -_-"
