WORST headphone you ever heard? - Page 82  

post #1216 of 1513
At least they are sort of honest stats! How many cheep packages list 5hz-45000hz with "bass driven high definition sound"?

Koss generally isn't terrible in SQ, but they're one of the worst when it comes to build quality. The DJ100 feels like a $30 can, and their cheapest offerings don't last very long.

 

If you go Koss, get a Portapro, DJ100, or ESP950. Those are all the acceptable models currently in production.

I read the specs on the ibuds, and it said that the buds go down to 20 Hz... I looked up a response chart for them, and they did reach to about 20 Hz... Before the sound fizzes out. The range without counting the drop of response is 200 Hz- 13,000 Hz.

I wouldn't exactly buy a koss because I know there are better options in all of the price ranges of their products.

I'm pretty sure the KSC75 is excellent value for the price that it's at.

Well, what's the max input power on the crapbuds you bought boogie? You probably would be able to blow out the speakers, seeing as how cheap ear buds usually have a very low max input of 50mW-150mW.

 

I actually have no idea, since I bought them a few years ago and ditched the packaging. I doubt they actually listed that, anyway... It's probably pretty low.

Ok then. I'll hook 'em up to my E7, max the volume, and see what happens. I'll take pictures in case they DO catch on fire :D

I meant blowing the drivers, not setting them on fire. For that, you need something on the order of a few thousand volts, which is not commonly found in your average household :o

 

Also, the E7 probably won't have enough output power to blow the buds that spectacularly. I'm talking about the type of amp you use to power speakers with a power output on the order of a couple dozen watts. Now that will be fun :D

Maybe I don't live in the average household. :evil: But you are correct, yes. I do not think I have that kind of power.

 

It doesn't even seem to have the power to blow them at any level of spectacular. At highest volume the only thing I'm noticing is that these buds have a much better sound as a pair of loudspeakers...

Ahahaha connect them to the speaker leads of an avr, then you'll get sparks...

Oho, that would be fun. Best I've got is a component system though, which I'm trying. The drivers seem to be disintegrating pretty quickly on a diet of Borealis and Gorillaz.

Look up the Wicked Audio Duece. Not sure if these have already been mentioned (82 page thread, come on), but they are nauseating.

The brand has been mentioned before, but I don't know if anybody's named that specific model before.

Wow, a solid wall of one star reviews on Amazon. I don't think I've ever seen that before.

The Real Question is why after 22 solid 1 star reviews would the 23rd person still buy them?? 

 

 

Thanks,

Damn, thanks for being another source of entertainment for today. Hilarious how so many people have given it 1-stars. I mean, after the first couple reviews, wouldn't people have gotten the point?
