WORST headphone you ever heard? - Page 90  

post #1336 of 1513

I have the feeling this thread derailed somewhat.

It would be a pity if one of the mods closes the thread because of that.

I don't use beats myself but I don't mind the fact that they exist. It tells me a lot about a person if he or she is wearing a pair.

 

The worst headphones I ever tried are the free airline kind. It never ceases to amaze me why anyone would use those pieces of junk, when all you need is a simple cheap adapter to use normal headphones.

But of course, they're like the best headphones ever made, we must talk about them! (Sarcasm)

 

No General is right (I like your name by the way), we should get back on topic.

 

I tried some apple earbuds (not the earpods, the older ones) just for the sake of this thread, and well, they might not be the worst, but they come damn close.. How do people even enjoy that? You can't hear half the music.

You know how there are extensions on either side of the headband? Well, they're housed in plastic housings that are held to the steel headband by only a flimsy piece of plastic. That's the part that broke. I might be able to get some pictures of it.

 


 

Getting back on topic,

The knockoff old Apple Earbuds are even worse than the originals. To me, the Apple Earbuds actually sound quite nice for freebies. The knockoffs are at least $3.

Air Canada's few years ago hook headphones. They sound poor and the hook doesn't stay on the ear. No isolation and awful colour (violet?!). Haven't been on Air Canada since because of the price and service of Cathay Pacific is put of the world (no baggage limitation, as long as its in 22 kg limit).

The worst I've heard are some $15 Sony earbuds...at first they were good, but then I tried some OEM Samsung earbuds and it made the Sony earbuds look like pure trash, both aren't better than $15 JVC XX earbuds though, those are far superior.

true dat. I have the full size JVC Ha-m55X's, and they make ear buds sound like trash, then I got my akg k240's today, and they make the JVC's sound meh.

Not counting some horrid airplane headphones that I couldn't listen to even before I cared about headphones, the worst ever have been my first pair. They were a pair of Philips headphones that looked like the Fischer Audio Oldskool 70s, except cheaper. Even at the time, with them paired to a cheap portable cd player, I knew the sound was bad, but I just didn't understand that it could be because of the headphones. I thought portable music just sounded like that.

 

(Oldskools BTW look like this)
