The hate on beats, why? - Page 21

I've kinda moved on from these Beats that are collecting dust in my bookshelf, but since I'm nearing 1000 posts and my first year, I've decided to just take them out of their shell again and listen to the headphones that started it all. I know, I may not exactly be "thatBeatsguy" anymore, but hey, I like putting them on my head from time to time. Now, if only I know how to do a video on top of a video...now I could be a vlogger (which I've wanted to do for a while).

You should mod those Pros.

 

The question is though what kind of mod can be done to them? You could install some more sonic barriers inside, or even multiple drivers! The possibilities are quite vast with such a large ear cup.

I've considered that for a long time, actually, but I don't have either the resources or skills to mod a headphone. I just listen.

 

And...what's a sonic barrier? Dampening?

They should ban beats and beats discussions from head fi, no good comes from them or talking about them.

     I don't like your reasoning. Right now, this and another thread I participate on are both doing pretty well. They are both Beats threads. Look, I know that there might not be any good coming out from them, but what's the point? If I were a loyal Beats fan, I'd go ranting all over you right now. But I'm not, so I'll withdraw.

 

     As a final statement rant, why the f'k are you even here? Get off the g'n thread if you don't like Beats. Nobody's forcing you to enter this thread and suddenly go "hey, head-fi should ban Beats because there's no point in talking about them." 

     Speaking of which, "hey, head-fi should kick you outta this thread because there's no point in randomly entering and saying that 'round here!"

I generally see more hostility than actual constructive conversation on this topic.

Exactly.

Guess I see your point. Problem is, if you ban anything with that red 'b,' then that means I'm probably gonna get kicked out like the rest of us who bought Beats before or after coming here. If that happens, well HF, you just lost yourself a member. Count me out on this BS.

In a way, we should all thank Beats - they made it a little more socially acceptable to spend decent amounts of money on headphones, instead of just using the standard ones that came with our MP3 players (or Minidiscs, Discmans, etc).

 

Lo, more appreciation was given to our hobby, more cash running around, and from that, we can see some fantastic products available today.

Exactly! Now that's a way to put it!

Acoustic sonic barriers are pieces of foam placed behind the drivers meant to trap acoustic energy and improve high frequency performance - in other words, reduce the bass a bit.

In a way, Beats made it socially less acceptable to wear headphones in public.

Thanks to them, you will be mistaken for somebody who wears stupid headphones to attract attention instead of someone, who really cares for top quality sound.

Thanks to them, you will be mistaken as a jerk, who follows every kids fashion, instead of someone, who spends extra money for good sound.

Thanks to them, you give the impression that you simply don't get it, because your headphones don't have a flashy color.

Thanks to them, you have to be extra careful in public, because every kid wants what you wear in your ears. Before, they didn't even notice.

 

(feel free to add to this)

      What about those really obsessive audiophiles who spend $100Ks on speakers (and I ain't talking Bose here; I'm talking Focal and alla those brands which are obscure unless you're that into the speaker game)? Don't they care about top quality sound, too?

 

     Also, wearing headphones in public still ain't socially acceptable, even if they ain't Beats. I've owned a couple of other headphones too, and I wore them in public once. Even then, I look like I'm attracting attention -- and mind you, it isn't intentional to say the least. Honestly, I've never seen anyone wear any heapdhones in public even before the advent of Beats. That, and headphones were supposed to be for home use only, until portables came. I get some people being laughed at for getting something other than Beats, and I understand that, but I guess I've never been through that s't before, since most people in my area wear IEMs or earbuds.

From what I've seen is a bunch of people ranting how terrible it sounds for the price. But the bigger problem is their users. Beats users are kids that thinks beats are the only good headphones company and ignoring better choice. Also, beats users are swaggers, which they drop their pants as low as possible to show their underwear. Futhermore, they are all teenagers with lots of money to spend.
