Speakers are the only solution for that.

One of the downsides of IEMs is it's hard to share the hobby. I don't carry spare tips with me to demo

Tell them Dre uses them in the Studio when his Beats are out for warranty returns.

I am very thankful for having so many musical friends. A large number of them participate in choirs or play instruments so they are pretty good at discerning differences in sound and it makes headphone showing much more successful. They've all already been trained to notice differences in sound so most will immediately see how the better headphones are better. Song selection can help a bunch with the non so discerning types...haha my little cheap R1s can be overly bassy so I just throw the beginning of Radioactive by Imagine Dragons at them and it'll rattle their heads.

Lol they wouldn't believe me. They would most likely argue that Dr Dre only uses his line of products in the recording studio..............My friends sometimes.................

Question to ask people to know if you're wasting your time before letting them try your headphones:

1. Do you have Beats?

2. If not, would they be your choice if you could afford them?

3. Do you think Beats are the best?

4. Do you like Eminem?

5. Do you like Tupac?

6. Do you learn about new music from the radio or MTV?

7. Do you listen to rap every day?

8. Do you listen to funk every day?

9. Do you love dem hoes?

Guys..relax..i am not a fan of dr dre beats also.. But..as far i see it..this kind of brand bashing/making fond off it, made a very interesting thread ( you know ur a audiophile when) being closed by the administrators all of a sudden..its very curious they did that after some very negative and funny posts about apple products and beats. Maybe some beats/apple lovers reported the posts?eek.gif

so pls..be carefull with the jokes..big brother is watching us..i dont want another very nice thread going to waste because of funny remarks about some not so audiophile brands acccording to most of us headfi'ers..wink.gif

I'm not sure I'd call myself an audiophile, but I guess I've ended up becoming one... Anyhow, that "wow-feeling" you got when you listened to a good headphone for the first time is something special... But it took me a while to get there, starting with a few pairs of decent in-ears and the learning experience, on the way to enlightenment. Still I've only started the journey and only own a few pairs of decent headphones, but I'm gonna buy more and better when the wallet allows me to, guess it's a drug.

So let me listen to your best headphones and I'll give you a good reaction wink.gif.

Gotta catch 'em all!
