Which modern cans (aside from Beats, maybe) would be considered fart cannons?

Any of the sony XB series?

Yeah, I'm not too thrilled about it, either. At least call it flatulence. biggrin.gif

I've personally never heard any of them, so I couldn't say from experience. By the time I knew what fart cannon bass was, I was actively seeking headphones that definitely wouldn't have it.

I like the pipe organ. Being the keyboard geek I am, that's the first thing I noticed. It almost looks like it has speakers, though I suppose those are eyes. It doesn't do anything (like make music), does it?

 

Also, off topic (like it should be in this thread), anybody seen these yet?

Ekocycle Beats. Made from 31% recycled materials. Cue the inevitable Head-Fi thread started by a newbie in the Lounge saying that they sound like garbage in 3...2...1...

 

...oh, wait, I guess I already got there first. biggrin.gif

I found this on the Beats website for the executives:



I could just see this:

It's a shame the Beats are so universally reviled around Head-Fi. Or maybe that should be it's a shame they're so sub par that they inspire those feelings.

 

Either way, I would pay just to see the epic battle threads where people claim that the Ekocycle Beats sound different--either better or worse--than the normal Beats, and then argue endlessly about it. Kind of like the blue box vs white box M50. I'm still astounded how a single Headfonia article that didn't even say that started something that has become sacred truth around this forum.

I would pour gasoline on that fire :) but then we already knew that.

Fire is a good idea in general when Beats are involved, so knock yourself out.

There really hasn't been a stand-out, definite winner of an idea yet for February.....but the best I have seen so far is Freddie February. (IMO)

This +1000. Photoshop a Freddie with some Beats on = timeless.

 

I think adapting avatars to people/personalities is usually more attractive than doing so to concepts (not a lot of noobvember adapters compared to the Currawong and Jude winter festivities). IMO. Not a lot of head-fi personalities starting with F in their usernames though. 

 

Maybe FR Feburary? Using FR graphs of our favourite headphones? Wouldn't allow cool custom photoshop work though :( 

 

 

Not-so-serious joke suggestion (Click to show)

Personally would want an excuse to put pretty girls on my avatar, so I nominate Fany Fany Feburary

 
  

 

 

Nope, not a fanboy at all...

How about Fanny Wang February? Or has everybody completely forgotten about them? I remember when they first started and everybody thought they were a myth. Now everybody and their ugly cousin has a Beatsish-looking model. I seem to remember Monster tried to sue them for their design and lost, so FW was technically the first of many companies to ape that aesthetic.

 

I seem to remember Ishcabible was the first one of us to get a review unit, and that he said they weren't quite as bad as you might expect.
