Well monster and Beats are 2 different companies now that have split ways. If you did not know that. Maybe you did and you were just listing some of the physical differences.

Yes I was just listing some differences in the new and old from a visual standpoint

the new solos actually did change their sound. It's not as drastic of an improvement as the studios, but it's certainly nice. I just hate the way the new studios look... SO much... The Solo HD however, is a very pretty headphone IMO, even if they don't really sound exceptional in any way, and are pretty overpriced.

I think that the Solo HDs could, in the hands of an experienced modder, be modded with a Koss driver or something and so make it an official Head-Fi headphone.

XD.

Yeah, I haven't chance yet to listen to them. I've been to Futureshop a few times in the last month or so but it always escapes my mind. I'll just wait until one of my friends gets them so I can also use my own source.

People will hate you for wearing Beats...backwards!!

 

Notice how the headphone jack is on the right side as opposed to the left, where it should be.

Won't lie, I actually quite enjoyed that.

Ok, I'm really digging my matte black beats studio. Are they worth $300? Eh. Up to you, but for what I paid, yes. Good portability and good sound.

Sounds like a blast. I wish I had got the matte black Studios instead of the Executives.

Hey I found a way to lower the amount of bass in the original Monster Studios. The trick is two small screw potentiometers on the main circuit board that control the amount of bass boost for each ear.

Unsubstantiated, much?

 

1. Have you tested this for yourself?

2. What kind of stereo amp design allows for channel independent bass boost control? Wouldn't it be awfully inconvenient and impossible to balance out?

 

 

 

No, those potentiometers are related to the microphones and its effect on active noise cancelling, not the bass. The Maxim MAX4410 EUD is what's responsible for the somewhat fixed bass boost by forming a -3dB high-pass filter. Coupled with the proprietary driver and enclosure design plus amplification, this increases perceived bass.

 

The Sony MDR-NC33 gives a more straightforward impression as to what that little potentiometer does.

I can't really stand the radio anymore because of the quality. People say it sounds like 128kbps MP3.


Some Internet radio stations don't even use 128kb/s and use 64kb/s.
