This one also cracked me up: http://www.head-fi.org/t/589738/sennheiser-hd-700-official-unveiling-tomorrow-at-ces-2012/540#post_8049986 ^^

For those who haven't figured it out yet, LFF and Purrin are actually the same person.

This one http://www.head-fi.org/t/586885/new-hifiman-headphone-he-400-is-out/300#post_8045404 by PALMFISH gave me a laugh. PRaT and hamburger grease lube.... and the Stax comparison at the end hahaha

I'm just getting started. Wait until the first "proper review" comes out and folks start debating "what if's."

 

What if the reviewer had used NOS WW II Australian Army tubes instead of those new Mullard's.

 

Everybody knows the HE-400 positively sings when you use a triple-braided Peruvian-mined silver cable (twisted counter-clockwise to synchronize with the Coriolis Force of the Southern Hemisphere). More air around instruments, a deeper black background, and of course, tighter bass!

 

Did you know that if you remove the inner foam seal and lubricate the drivers with hamburger grease (use only South American beef, of course), you can improve the PRat, and widen the soundstage?

 

So how do the HE-400's compare to the Stax SR-009 with acoustic Aboriginal Speed Metal?

 

I can't wait! beyersmile.png

He plugged his into this big box thing which he said was an amplifier or something ?? yeah but my beats already had a built in amplifier , plus they only use two batteries instead of those boring old tube things . Plus my beats look waaaaay better than those strax or whatever , and theyre way better built . His cheapo headphones had no base , like it was all like for old people and stuff . yeah . Apparently he paid like 5 grand for his headphones , like what a ripoff . who would pay that much for something with no base ??

Don't know how my friend could like them so much. Trhen my friend tells me to check soundstage, left and right he says, so I check, looool, Beats is sooo much better, the guy singin' or rappin' is IN YOUR HEAD, no fancy effect, DIRECT sound, 1 more point for Beats.

 

Ah, I finally found the name, Odyssey LSD2, my friend should have bought Beats Quality instead, Tried to tell him but he got sort of defensive, sad really, wasting a chunk of money instead of going for REFERENCE quality.

"The question is," said Humpty Dumpty, "which is to be master-that's all."

Reply: My wife is hot but suffers with terrible B.O, which of the sennheiser line do you think would suit my listening needs best under these circumstances?

Serious, of course I'm serious, Beats allows to you to get in phaze with the music, with Beats you are in harmony with the music, it a honest headphone that adds nothing to the music, no frills, no overcompensation, just honest deep music and manly bass. Sounds true to life. Only  Bose can dream of approaching Dre quality, none of the so called audiophile brands are worth looking at if LSD2 is the best they can offer. If you love good sound, buy Dre, it can only get better now that Monster won't be dragging Beats's quality down, no more compromise, Dre's sound is coming, it and it's gonna hit hard.

We must be dealing with yet another troll !

post #83 of 603

oh yeah I saw that... at first I thought you were serious too then I thought  no way he CAN'T be. That's classic!

I'm going to have to revisit this thread when I need a good laugh.

 

!!!!---->"Only  Bose can dream of approaching Dre quality, none of the so called audiophile brands are worth looking at if LSD2 is the best they can offer"

too funny.

Actually I'm at the age where I don't care what anyone else uses or thinks.

Granted, it's from a very old thread (2003), but while searching the For Sale section for an MDR-V6 I found this reply:

yes, I am interesting

 

I guess if there were multiple offers, this may have helped tip the scale.
