But you have no idea how embarrassing it was for me the other day when I was in a local store kindly asking to try some schiit......

I get a kick out of it. A few weeks ago I asked a local hi-fi store if they carried any replacement schiit tubes. they thought I was kidding at first biggrin.gif

At least Phelps tends to wear SOL to spice things up in terms of sponsorship.

Now im curious as to how much those cables originally cost.

 

They were $499. The vendor at Amazon uses a false list price, $4,999, to try to make the discount seem bigger!

This is what I was talking about a few pages back. I've seen half a dozen of them being worn by athletes so far. Also saw two SOL and one Bose. I kinda hoped it was the athletes's choices of headphones, but this article confirms what I doubted.

 

How can they get by with such insulting marketing tactics? It seems like, again, they slid trough the first loophole they found. And they're not even being subtle about it. Still the crowd blindly falls for it, and will probably use this to reinforce their view that beats are the best headphones ever. "Cause if all the athletes use them, it's obviously because they're the best!"

If it said, "Beats by Beatles" then perhaps maybe I would consider it o2smile.gif

Customs aren't exactly cheap, you know. His friend got those headphones for free. Who wouldn't want free headphones like these?

I'm still trying to figure out whether Phelps was paid by SOL. The logo was always very crudely covered.

Crystal clear vocals, deep, punchy bass, sparkling highs, forward mids. Beats bring everything to the table in one stylish package. Goes well with my Macbook Pro Beats Edition too"

I can't tell if he's serious...

 

..........since when did they make a Macbook Pro Beats Edition?

Probably a "Limited" edition

(obviously there's something wrong with this guy since he says Dre is a professional musician? blink.gif)
