Something sexy and cheap? Flush the beats.

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 

Time to flush the beats - I'm sure you get these threads all day long. 


But basically I want something that looks attractive like the beats, but something that doesn't have the typical record player sounding **** audio quality like the beats.

 

Some examples of what im goin after:

 

Polk UltraFocus 8000 NC

Klipsch M40 Mode

Sennheiser HD 598

 

 

I'm really going after that futuristic look..the glossy color, preferably white, blue, gray, or black....But doesn't really matter.

 

 

If anybody could find me something nice that I can get for under $200, it would be much appreciated(: 

 

Thanks in advance!

I know the HD598, but the other models are new to me. 

 

I assume you like bass?

look into some V-moda 80's ( customizable earplates ), or maybe a Phaiton ( MS 400 carbon fiber looks incredible ), Philips also has some nice looking stuff these days.

All around or under your budget range.

 

Should be enough impressions for all of them in here somewhere

 

 

In reference to the record player @##@ quality try and use the best quality bit rates you can for your files ( I assume you use digital files ) in case you already don't that is :)

 

 

looking forward to suggestions.

 

AND WELCOME TO HEAD-FI

You just called Beats attractive and said record players sound like ****.... I'm struggling to contain my rage

blue, grey, and black? attractive, modern style? optional noise cancelling, just like the Polk and Klipsch? warm/comfortable, yet balanced sound? under $200?

---->Logitech "Ultimate ears" UE6000, $199 

 

Tyll just posted a review up at his website, InnerFidelity, and he liked them very much: The Surprisingly Good Logitech UE6000 and UE9000

Did you mean gramophone? Record players usually sound quite good.

And I didn't love the Klipsch, have never heard of the Polk, and am befuddled by the inclusion of the Senn. It's both open and probably not as bassy as you probably want.

I second the Phiatons. The MS400 is really cool-looking with its carbon fiber. Sounds pleasant too.

you can try V-moda, and the new Sennheiser Momentum. i saw it once on the street, the Momentum looks really awesome and fascinating :)

How comfortable are those UE-6000? Think I could wear them for 3-4 hours on a plane ride and be fine?
