post #10711 of 140085

Well in my defense I've always liked gadgets/tech. And looking for headphones with better than iBud sound was something I did within a small budget for years (have never used stock buds that come with MP3 players). Really, the K-ON thing was just a little push into a higher tier and its still the only anime related purchase I've ever made. 

 

I'd like to purchase a nice electric guitar someday though...

 

edit: Also, I researched for weeks and bought a DAC/AMP before buying the K701s so it definitely wasn't an impulse buy. Wouldn't have payed 300 bucks for the K701s if general opinion on them wasn't positive.

Personally I didn't like the K701's that much, even though Im kind of a AKG-phile.

My TF10's were actually a impulse buy because I was desperate for a portable system, thank god they're actually quite good or I'd have regret that decision for life.

You Tried the LCD's? 

Hard to believe open can with punchy bass. (by my definition of "punchy" of corse, and that's saying a lot since I used the AKG K181.)

 

My point still stands: Tried it, didn't like it. (and I tried them before watching K-ON)

I always demo cans before reading about them so I don't get affected by expectation bias. 

But then I'll get affected by confirmation bias when reading about them... LOL.

Correct, but it just weaker in some compared to others (like me).

NO NO, You're getting it ALL WRONG.

You're not suppose to give it SUNBURNS! As far anyone knows the only was to properly burn-in any headphones is to submerge the entire headphone into 99.999999% pure snake oil and light the whole thing on fire, Make sure the headphones are ENTIRELY submerged. 

Have fun with burning in those cans of yours biggrin.gif

Yep, $2.5k blind purchase for my O2's.

 

Was super antsy on what to expect as they were pretty much my first high end headphone.

@borisu kun
No i said i didnt demo so i can only buy off what others say frown.gif

@deadly
Did the purchase work out well? Worth it in your opinion?



I think burn in is a combo of you getting used to the sound an miniscule differences however I still burn in before doing any reviews as some want me to and why not?

Im in manhattan lol smily_headphones1.gif

I suddenly feel really fortunate, seeing how many people here have to go with blind purchases.

Guess I just happened to live in a good place to be a audiophile...

 

I'm in manhattan too!! (Playing Prototype 2 biggrin.gif)

JK, I don't have a Xbox.
