not a post, rather a PM but worth it:

Person in question then hums and haws about the money involved but eventually drops the coin on them because other cans mentioned like the H2 are to rediculously expensive or like the HD650 aren't respected too much on the basis of "bonkers rumbling bass thump" or some varient of phrase thereof.

Darth beyers arrive from headphile, user loves "crazy pounding subwoofer on the head effect" or some varient of prase thereof until about 2 or 3 weeks later, which is either 13 or 20 days after new toy love syndrome wears thin. User listens to the headphones with ears instead of "blat bass honk trumps fo shizzle" or some varient of phrase thereof, and realises that in fact the Darth Beyer is to the ear what a train accident is to sex appeal, or what an Aga is to aerodynamics, or what a large bore oil rig drilling bit is to chess. IE: A useless pile of rubbish.

Darth Beyers sound horrible. Unless you're so much of a basshead with an inability to critically listen at all, that you are incapable of recognising it. They can actually cause motion sickness and the death of nearby children. Avoid them.

STATS FICTION

Scene 5; Vincent Vega Buys a New Pair of Headphones

 

INT. LANCE'S BEDROOM – NIGHT

 

Lance, late 20s, is a young man with a wild and woolly appearance that goes hand-in-hand with his wild and woolly personality. LANCE has been selling headphones his entire adult life. He's never had a day job, never filed a tax return and has never been arrested. He wears a red flannel shirt over a "Can Jam" tee-shirt.

 

Three headphones lie on Lance's bed.

 

Lance and Vincent Vega stand at the foot of the bed.

 

LANCE

Now this is Hifiman, from China. Very good stuff. This is Audeze, different, but equally good. And this is Stax from the Akaishi Mountains of Japan. Now the first two are the same, nine-fifty a pair – those are friend prices – but this one... (pointing to the 009s) ...this one's a little (a lot) more expensive. It's forty-five hundred. But when you hear it, you'll know where that extra money went.  Nothing wrong with the first two. They’re real, real, real, good s---. But this one's a f---in' madman.

 

VINCENT

Remember, I’ve got a pair of Ultrasones.

 

LANCE

Am I a newb? Are you in the main Headphones forum? No. You're in Summit Fi.  Head Fiers who know the difference between good s--- and bad s---, this is the forum they come to. My s---, I'll take the Pepsi Challenge with dynamic s--- any ol' day of the fuckin' week.

 

VINCENT

That's a bold statement.

 

LANCE

This ain't Best Buy, Vince. This is a seller's market. Dynamics are f---in' dead as disco. Stats are comin' back in a big f---in' way. It's this whole seventies retro. Orthos, stats, they're as hot as hell.

 

Vincent takes out a roll of money that would choke a horse to death.

 

VINCENT

Give me forty-five hundred worth of the madman.  If it's as good as you say, I'll be back for the Blue Hawaii.

 

 

 

 

Adapted from this.

I would not like them being amped

I would not like them kees'd or damped

I do not like them with rock or jazz

I do not like them with any music I has.

It butchered Bruch and strangled Strauss

It pillaged my wife and raped my house

Its like a cruel vending machine 

that dashes hopes and shatters dreams

but invariably you put in money "just one more time"

because it can't possibly exist just to squeeze out your last dime

you think I'll try both tubes and solid state,

I'll burn in and balance and braid it in eight,

but its futile as trying to sautee fake fruit

I'm going for stats and giving these the boot

I would not like it if it cost a pittance

But at its price sayonara and good riddance.
