As you've pointed out that particular website is for people with little knowledge about headphones which is why that website should have compared similar products, one was closed for use outdoors while the other is open and for use indoors with an amp. that's why it was an unfair comparison.
As for how the website is different to headfi, this place is a person's opinion whereas the other is a place which projects an authoritive review and giving a sense of knowledge on the subject matter.
Anybody coming to headfi thinking they will get all their answers without making up their own mind and/or trying out that particular gear well i'm sorry but i can't help them
I'm talking about this website, the very threads we have here on this forum, don't twist my word's around of what I'm actually saying using it in your argument. I don't care how different it is to Head-fi, you originally complained about saying it is unfair that a closed headphone shouldn't be compared to an open one and the closed one was favoured more, this happens a lot here on head-fi, in threads written by some contributors and I'm not going to name them, use the search function yourself and of course general users that post their a/b comparison's opinions etc.
You are not reading the thread then. The whole point is the article is Beats VS. HD650. Not 650 vs 990
I am actually not "upset" about anything. I am just pointing that your logic bares no resemblance to reality. Even headfiers with a basic understanding of headphones don't review such phones up against each other.
If it was another closed headphone for example the ATH-M50's, M80's or M100's vs HD650 would you have responded in the same way?
Not directed at you but fanboy's need to be corrected of ill information and ridiculous posts sometimes and these people should not make posts from their own opinion that in a way they as if speaking for the rest of us.
Beats aren't rugged. Ignore those review sites.
Actually, ignore any good reviews of Beats period because any positive statements made about Beats are lies.
Some may disagree with me about this, and say something like "herp derp they are good for rap and hip-hop" but in actuality, for half the price of a pair of beats, you can get a headphone that does those genres FAR better. Another one I've heard is that they're good for DJing. Once again, significantly cheaper options that will perform far better are available. Pioneer's line of DJ headphones are a good example.
Bottom-line? NEVER support the rip-off artists who make ****ty celebrity-endorsed headphones like Beats. NEVER.
You know you're an audiophile when you type out at least one argument against Beats every day.
Keep riding that bandwagon because it's getting you nowhere.
Well said. +1.
