Non-audiophile reactions to high-end headphones Part II - Page 8

post #106 of 3597

On my break, my superior was playing some game with his phone.  I sneaked behind him and shoved my headphones on his ears (playing some songs he likes of course).

"Waaaaaaah!" (English translaion: Wooooooow!)

I raised my eyebrow and smirked.  Thinking, "Yes, feel the power of my headphone with amp."

"Waaaaaah..."

"Uhuh" I nodded.  Feeling that I finally got my superior to understand why I insist on wearing headphones at work.

 

When he died (in game) he was upset and told me to take the headphones off.

"Don't you like it?" I asked.

"That damn music was too good, I can't concentrate on my game!  Keep those things away from me!"

Well, at least he said it was "too good" (literal translation).

How much doess the ELAC cost? I've never seen one before, not that I pay much attention to speakers in general.

The HE-500 are a special set of cans! What's the rest of your chain?

Unless you're into the ultimate rare models, nothing depreciates in value faster than a car. And if you use it daily in the end it will die on you.

 

Audio doesn't do that.

Computers.

Wow, this thread has really quieted down since transitioning from the old one.

Maybe some people just never noticed the tread was restarted? 

 

I recently let a couple of my friend try out my LCD-2 set up with the ALO Pan Am (with a slight EQ for Bass, to convince the Beats believers), and all of them were stunned, even more so when I told them the price :D They were like,"The sound is absolutely freaking amazing....... How much did this cost?" But I've converted at least 2 of them to the dark side, one just bought a Fiio E17 and another is planning for CIEMs :)

It's in my sig. Right now I'm using a Playstation 1 as a CD player (surprisingly good!) to a Denon speaker amp, then output to the headphones. It's like nothing I've heard before.

I find your PS1 rig to be very, very cool. But why a PS1 of all things?

post #116 of 3597

PS1s are very cheap these days. There's a bit of a buzz about how the original run PS1s can put out sound worthy of a $6000 CD player. Now I have no idea if that's actually true, but for the price you can get them on Ebay, why not? So far I'm very happy.

I actually really want a PS1 for my CD player, then use it as a console sometimesbiggrin.gif Just need a bit more money..

post #118 of 3597

How would I connect my amp/DAC to the PS1? Would I need the DAC?

post #119 of 3597

Well, when I bought my DT880's I showed them to a couple friends, they just liked them (using the music they like and listen everyday) like "oh they sound good, nice" and thats all.

 

Then, that day at night, one texted me this: "god i hate you, Im listening to blablabla and now sounds like **** with my headphones".

 

xDDD, yes, he bought a pair of K550s and he is damn happy :D

This ^. Sir, you just defined me, car to go to the place A to the place B in the cheapest way possible, even I use the bus a lot (I love to use the bus while I listen to music with my headphones :D).

Or, you can be like me and spend it all on headphones. I use public transportation anyways, I hate driving. :p
