My buddy and I had a headphone shootout the other day... He brought his beloved Beats Pro (when he bought them two years ago i told him he was insane to spend $400 on a pair of phones, but, umm, anyway...). He also brought his Sony vr6, and I had DT 880s, HD 650 and 600, as well as ATH-M50s.
We listened to the Beyers and the Sennheisers for a while, then got the Beats out.
In a way I feel really bad that he knows the truth now. He was perfectly happy before.
Enlighenment comes at a price. Your friend will now begin to truly enjoy music, once he dumps the Beats and learns to spend his money on better stuff. So which of your cans did he like the best?
