You have NO right, whatsover, to comment on my SUBJECTIVE opinions when you try to defend your SUBJECTIVE opinions. To me, they are detailed, with pinpoint soundstage, and slightly emphasized treble and midrange. To me, they are almost neutral and great headphones. How on earth do you you think you have the right to defend your own opinions when you disgustingly reject the opinions of others? No wonder you got banned.
You sound angry. I simply asked you to elaborate on what justified the characteristic "analytical". I even said "please". And you never elaborated at all. I actually do care about others' experiences that back up their opinions, though not much of their opinions themselves.
Once again, you say "to you" they sound almost neutral but the graphs contradict what you are saying. Someone could say, "I hear a night and day difference after switching cables". Okay that's subjective and in no way could I argue otherwise that's what he is hearing. But I could definitely question whether he is supposed hear it when objectively, there should be a very subtle difference at the most, if at all. Heck researchers did a double blind test comparing a high-end cable with a cable made out of a wire hanger, and listeners found no differences whatsoever between the two. Perhaps what I really want to point out is that due to hype and fanboyism, general descriptions of headphones just don't cut it (ex: headphone X has amazing detail retrieval and sound clarity for the price!")
"When you disgustingly reject the opinions of others" Reject? Is that a bad thing? I already elaborated that some opinions are worthless or not really opinions at all. And wouldn't you say "disgustingly" would be a subjective usage here?
*And I would like to bring attention to the fact that YOU attacked my point of view first. I find that extremely hypocritical when you are accusing me of being a hate-war starter.
"No wonder you got banned" I told Currawong to delete that account because I like this one better. We all appreciate your assumption though.
"a much bolder line between helping people choose by giving them opinions on how a headphone sounds vs criticizing a headphone"
So you think it's much of a help to say, for instance, that the Q701 sounds slightly analytical while the HE-400 sounds more 'fun'? Usually people use extremely ambiguous descriptions that adds nothing to the discussion. Talking about flaws and criticisms from a group of people tend to be far more informative in helping someone choose a headphone, so once again, your point is moot. Another example: When you recommend a headphone like the HD598, you have to tell the person that bass-light is a common criticism of it but a small minority of people found it to be too much coming from headphones like an AD700. That gives a good idea of what the bass capability of the HD598 is. A person who listens solely to EDM or dubstep can, despite all the strengths of the HD598, find the HD598 to be a less "safer" choice than other headphones around the price range.
