Great looks is clearly a matter of opinion. Goth/Steampunk...not my thing. Seriously though...who gives a ****? Looks? You made a + point which was the 2nd most common - point about beats. They're just fashion statements<<<repeated by many a V-Moda fan btw. Then there's the whole..I can't see these plates cuz they are on my head kinda thing. If that's not about style for others to enjoy...I dunno what is.
Well made? That shouldn't be special. I take my headphones off before I bungee jump
I take them off before I para sail
I lead an active lifestyle but at the point of "tank strength" I am not allowed to wear em. I am very very active but .....I still don't see the point cable stress tests? How about folks take care of their stuff and btw send a memo to M-Audio since they NEED wire help. I need bass and M100 are fantastic for folks with iphones and portable devices (most of the market) I amp. The M 100 didn't take my super slope. If i didn't have a portable amp I would like these more but I do so...meh
If they make a fashion plate that increases bass response between 20Hz-120Hz I wouldn't be interested but THAT would be cool.
I'm not hating on you Shaolin because
1. Your a basshead...(I'm not into cannibalism)
2. Your happy (that's what matters)
3. This is all opinion.
I knew you'd be in here. I almost took a shot at the site and one of it's most popular brands/owners/fanbase. This is a revenue generating site for _______ and______ and that goes without saying.
I list 3 points to anyone who inquires about my favorite cans. If any of those 3 points don't fit I say get th6 or 9's. I go out of my way to not let my love drain another persons pocket. Seeing a PERFECT rating on new cans is only slightly less annoying than folks who do reviews and don't have the pics to show em. People can drive up or down rankings and perceptions of cans they may not even know. If you have the ear of anyone they should require some photos to be an official tied to amazon/seller starred review. Folks spend their money based on these sites members words. A more strict proof of ownership would maybe ferret out the unfortunate few that go out of their way to ruin other peoples day and savings.
