i see beyer's so much it's not even funny. it's funny to know that deep inside. as head fi'ers and music lovers(i see you don't prefer the term audioophile) we use more expensive stuff than them. i see Beyer DT770's most of the time and i can guess/bet they are probably 32-80 ohm versions :/ worth at about $180......pffffft... ok . we head fi'ers can just go talk about the HD800, STAX SR009 and Audeuze research labs LCD 3's while your at it.
only thing i really find funny with modern studios is they have millions(or even billions) of dollar budget and still manage to screw up the recording and do horrible mastering job in the process. not just music but with movies and even games nowadays. i see bedroom artists/producers making better recordings and better mastering work than even some of top hollywood studios. engineers back then in the studios before the loudness war were not only recording and mastering engineers but real audiophiles(the term audiophile in the modern world lost all meaning) in the golden era of audio who cared about how the job was done. now it doesn't matter due to the ipod and digital world. stuff is no longer recorded in real stereo anymore either.
