Need some opinions (BEATS HATERS GET OUT) - Page 5

post #61 of 101
Thread Starter 
Haha I just wanted to see how much hate the beats would get if I posted this thread. And I am a new member but u guys really r pretty opinionated and if someone else thinks different u basically say they r stupid. Nice guys. This will prob be my last visit ever to this site since there r other 'audiophile' sites that can actually provide me with helpful info


And I don't get how all u guys want non audiophile people to see what good headphones sound like but then when someone willing to that doesn't know what is good or bad u guys make them sound stupid and then they leave and say the hell with it.

why do you take it like that? I would say its really just 2 people in this thread who cant accept that others don't like what they like. Its OK to have very unique hearing, thats what hearing aids are for.

 

You really should listen to some of the headphones people recommended before writing them off.

 

Your post is ironic... you act like you want to hear new things today (all u guys want non audiophile people to see what good headphones sound like) but did you actually listen to anything but your own 2 requests? its interesting... "tell me what is good but only what my preconceived notions will accept". Thats always a good way to get to the bottom of the matter.

If the thread wanted to ask about the Boston Red Sox and said "Yankees fans stay out," and a bunch of Yanks came in saying:

"but how are you going to expect honest opinions?"

You know what that is?  It's called trolling aka looking for trouble aka breach of forum etiquette. 

Maybe OP wanted an opinion from other bass lovers, so that he could get an actual recommendation that might be relevant.

Why would I ask someone who listens primarily to jazz about what country album to buy?  OH YEAH, I WOULDN'T.


I didnt actually read this before, because I was busy and have better things to do.

 

This is an interesting example, made more intersting by the OP's admission that he started this thread to see how people would react... In short you were his pawn doing his bidding while he watched and laughed.

 

Your yankees/redsocks example is nice. 

 

What would you call if it you asked a bunch of yankees fans about the red socks? This is only inviting a heated response, and is commonly refered to as posting "flame bait"

 

From urban dictionary:

 

Flame baiting is setting up a situation for you to get flamed usually on a forum. You don't actually flame, but make it hard to respond without flaming. Its setting people up on the internet so they look like the bad guy. Generally Looked down upon

 

Its QUITE commonly seen in trolls.

just so you cant delete it. you seem like that kind of individual.

The solo's sound farty, but the Studio's sound ok.  Still overpriced, but they have a nice sound.

 

If you want great bass, plus super quality looks.  Try the Ultrasone HFI-580 / 680.

 

Also, the Senn HD-25-1 II is a great option.  If you want some flavor, get the Adidas HD-25 edition

I think you had alot of help even though you barely posted at all... If you had replied or asked questions, they would have helped you more. Most people here meant well.

 

Good luck.

Yeah....I re-read the entire thread and despite some of the obvious trolling and incoherent posts, there was actually some good information and solid recommendations. No different than any other Beats thread. It just seems that more than any other brand, people that come here asking about Beats get all butt hurt when they aren't told that their beloved noise makers are not the most fabulous pieces of audiophile equipment made. The mere mention of another headphone being recommended over the God-like Beats is akin to breaking one of the Ten Commandments.

Okay... How did you and your Beats-supporting friend act again? Yeah, not hypocrite at all.

If that's your admission that head-fi is full of bass haters, then I concur. 

The reason your analogy fails in the broader sense, however, is that head-fi is not a "bass hater" site. 

It's a general headphone site that happens to have a large bass hating readership.

 

The distinction is subtle.  Maybe you'll grasp it; maybe not. 

Here's my final attempt at an analogy:

This is a candy store.  Most people here like hard candies, but there are a few chocolate lovers.

The hard candy people tend to dominate the discussion.

Bob, chocolate lover, wants an opinion from other chocolate lovers. 

Bob tries to pre-empt the hard candy people from weighing in.

 

Flame bait?  Hardly.

But there's a word for people who might suggest that it's flame bait:  intolerant.

 

I did the bidding of someone who intended to troll?  Maybe.

That really isn't the issue though, is it?

Because the original question, troll intent notwithstanding, could be a reasonable one. 

Therefore, what is actually germane to the issue is: 

why isn't it okay for a chocolate lover to solicit other chocolate lovers' opinions?

I don't think Head-fi is exactly bass-hating. Alot just doesn't understand what it means to be a basshead. Immediately calling added bass as "bad bass" is ridiculously derogatory to bassheads. Most of members here like boosted treble, but we don't call it "bad treble." Sure bass can run around in the rest of the frequencies, but it's always been a goal for bassheads to find the most impactful bass that does it to a lesser extent. Trying to listen to hiphop without added bass? How fun can that really be for a basshead? They like to feel the rhythm, not just listen to it. It's like listening to classical without the spaciousness and the treble all rolled off.

Did. Sorry but I can't really see how it changes anything.

post #75 of 101

Anyways added bass=boosted bass. I don't see how headphones can add random low range frequences. They boost it just like how practically any headphone boosts a certain frequency or lowers the response of others.
