Things besides headphones come in the box. People are curious. This satisfies the curiosity to an extent. What's the big mystery?
The best thing about the unboxing videos, is that if you don't like them, no one will make you watch them.
Then again, no one is making me read this.
really enjoy watching unboxing videos of phones I have or do not have. They help answer question about contents and sometimes I watch just to watch
I need hifiguy to do unboxing video of Grado PS1000 so that I can get my fix
You can't purchase everything.
When something its far from budget, unboxings is a good starting point.
Grados make up for the most boring unboxing videos ever... you can simply store your headphone and repeat the "unboxing experience" indefinitely.
To parody that I unboxed a pair of (brand new) Grado Reference interconnects... using my (decorative) katana. I'm not putting it here but you can easily find it if you're curious, lol. It has got like 15 views in one month, one of my least popular video, but at least it has linked my YouTube channel to Grado in some way.
I used to like unboxing videos, but I watched them just in hope of getting over with it already. With internet there is so much content to watch, read or hear, that the best thing you can do is to get bored with it, so that you can move on already, and never come back.
The excitement of doing a real unboxing is also something kind of psycho and nasty, it's the materialistic type's ultimate pleasure.
I see one said "procrastinate the laziness", which amazing, when you think about it, lol. It's like putting to later the putting to later.
Unboxing videos are pretty exciting I think. But I only watch those which are followed by a review.
I would like someone to do a complete unboxing of the Denon D1100 and then put it back in the box just as new. This would take about 2 hours and require lots of obscenities.
I should post a video of me unboxing an HD-800 and take like 10 minutes to examine it's cable..or text on the box. Maybe do a review of it straight out of the box from a Archos 64mb player just to annoy people.
Maybe claim it's too bass light.
For fun I will also do the Anax mod and stuff it with random hay and crumbled construction paper. Maybe pillow stuffing and duck tape too.
Myparrots1 always do both simultanneously, he finds a way to listen to the headphones before making their purchase. LinusTechTips also.
When you buy a product you should know exactly what you're buying. There shouldn't be any surprise for the new owner. And good unboxers knows how to do it quickly enough also, flying over small and unimportant details. Watchers dislike when one takes too much time on the pointless paperwork before getting to the main subject.
Sometimes it can pertain to pre-cut all the tape and bags open, to save a bit of time.
I like to pretend that those are my hands that are opening the packaging and inspecting every nook and cranny of the headphone and packaging. If I watch 10 unboxing videos a day I feel like the richest audiophile around.
This also helps a lot. Although, IIRC Hifiguy's videos don't usually have something common in the background, like CDs or whatever, and if you're judging size by hands... well mind looks like a monkey's, which I'm sure not everyone in the world are like mine. Hey, maybe you could do that too, Hifiguy. Put the headphone being unboxed side by side with a regular CD for a few seconds.
