It was about two years ago when I first listened to the Klipsch S4 Image headphones. Before that, I had only ever listened to the crappy Apple iPod white earbuds. Listening to the Klipsch S4's completely blew my mind, I had no idea what I was missing.
Fast forward two years later I have YET to find a pair that feels as warm as the Klipsch S4's. Seeing that Klipsch won CNET's Editor Award confirmed my decision that these are the greatest headphones ever made.
I need YOUR help Head Fi! Help prove me wrong, show me a pair of headphones in the sub $200 category that will blow my mind!
I'm a huge dubstep fan, and warm deep bass is most appreciated.
I've already tried the:
Hippo VB's, about vomited when I heard them. What a terrible pair of headphones.
Shure SE-215K's were "alright", but they were far too bright for my liking, crisp highs felt ear-piercingly loud and dry.
Bose IE1/2 are just god-awful in my opinion as well, and a terrible bargain
Monoprice 8320's, lol I can't believe I bought these
Monster Turbines, great sound, horrible built quality
Beats by Dr. Dre tour, surprisingly decent, too embarrassed to wear them in public though.
I just keep going back to my good ol' trusty Klipsch S4's
I would love to hear your thoughts Head-Fi!
