This is the impression I get from those of you that call yourselves audiophiles (correct me if I'm wrong). You at one time loved music and wanted it to sound as good as possible. But in that quest you have taken on the thought that music needs to sound as accurate as it can, and it has become a competition that never ends that you have to get the most accurate set up. You need to have the best equipment and need to prove and defend your equipment. However, this quest is never meet because there is always something better and you are always onto the next bigger and better thing. And this once quest to get better sounding music has turned into this game that never ends and seems to made you forget why you loved music in the first place. Not to be the most accurate but because you like listening to it. But think about it, does more accurate actually make you want to listen to music more? or is it like a disease that has destroyed music for you.
Maybe I'm completely wrong but tell me that. I came here because right now I'm using $10 ear buds that I don't mind but when I go to my car, or at a event with speakers, and I get this rich sound with a fun amount of bass. I get engaged with the music and sometimes find myself singing along, which I never do because I have a horrible voice. Or will tap my feet or bob my head. So I when I was at best buy a while ago and put on a pair of beats I knew I wanted a pair of decent headphones. It gave me that feeling of being in my car with good speakers with bass. I would have gotten them but couldn't justify spending $300 on a pair of headphones when I'm in college. So I went on the internet and started looking for cheaper options. But the only thing I get is that beats suck because they are overpriced. I get that, that is why I didn't get them in the first place. I don't get why they are so bad because they are not an accurate representation of the true music. Who cares if it sounds more fun and you get more enjoyment out of listening to them. Isn't that what it is about anyway. It seems like a competition, and most accurate or true to the music is the thing to compete on because it is the only thing you can kind of measure. It's hard to compete for which headphones you enjoy most because we all have different tastes.
I kind of want to get a MK2 because it supposedly has good bass and has a detachable cable. I want these to last a while not like my ear buds where after a few months I can only hear music in 1 ear. My only concern is that they will be to tight, I wear glasses. I'd get the M50 but from you guys I feel like it wont have enough bass. But I'm a little hesitant because I don't want to fall in the same trap of getting music to sound accurate, I just want to make it more fun to listen to.
Please guys correct me if I'm wrong. I have a hard time taking advice from you guys because I feel like we have 2 different views on music. I think it is fun and you guys treat it as an competition. I can give you more specifics what I'm looking for but I want you to keep in mind where I'm coming from and what I am looking for.
