You void your warranty. And with that cracking headband and loose screws, you can't afford to lose your warranty.

I'm not insane enough to try that on a new pair! eek.gif I'd buy a broken headband pair on ebay, but they seem to be going for over $100 still...

You could probably find a fake pair of Studios. Reports say that they sound about the same as the real deal.

Not too hard to admittedly. And they're still $150ish. As opposed to my fake ESW10JPNs which were $25 and made of actual wood. (Using them as donor phones) Not cool.

You have it completely wrong,

 

In the candy store, everyone likes chocolate.

There's this one guy who loves chocolate so much, all he wants is more chocolate regardless of the quality of it

Everyone tells him - "You have too much chocolate, so much that it overpowers the taste of everything else"

"YOU JUST HATE CHOCOLATE WWAAAAAH"

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?

Monster B-Stock has them foor $150, not actually a terrible price to be honest.

Who cares if that's what he likes? Let him have all the chocolate he wants!

 

I mean I own and very much enjoy my XB500's does that make me a Chocolate addict? I mean it has Xtra Chocolate, it has so much chocolate the person who was naming it was being rattled out of his chair and made a typo on the name, that's a lot of chocolate!

Well in all truth I would say the Beats by Dr. Dre suck. but that depends all on the kind you get. For the love of all holy,DO NOT GET THE TOURS. In fact i just happen to be wearing a pair at this moment. They sound too muddy. what u want is the pros, or the executive. Earbud beats are not what u want. Dont get studios either cuz all thats special about them is they vibrate. <(o_0<)<(0_0)>(>0_o)> yes.
