Non-audiophile reactions to high-end headphones Part II - Page 71

To keep things simple, I replied that my headphones weren't focused on bass (they actually have good bass, just not bloated midbass), but that compared to his the music should be much more clear. I offered to let him try it (I have no idea what was playing on his phone) and after just a few seconds he goes "DAMN, I can hear the clarity already!"

 

By the end of the lecture he was asking me for a list of recommendations for portable headphones under $40, which I promised to have ready by sunday. If handled well, I think he could be a possible convert, so any suggestions? :p

JVC S500 i think they are called. but it depends on where you live. You could get them through amazon if youre in the states.

"You silly, these headphones sound so good, our ears and soul need good quality sounds of music, we should enjoy listening to music. Who could live having to listen to low quality headphones ?"

Well yeah there are those who don't agree on our expenses on headphones. Then again those are the same people who spend $30 on a shirt, and $50 on pants. I would ask, why not just buy the no-name brands that look just as good?

By the way, I am totally eating bread, peanut butter and bananas for breakfast until I get sick of them. Just like how I bought 10 boxes of cheerios that I still have to go through.

I need to go to a Can my self, but I'm also a Baka.BT member, I do enjoy getting my Flacs from there as well! I'd have to say though Mushishi was one of my Favorite OSTs along with the Seiken Denetsu Music Collection. 


Hah. Tentacles is just the beginning of it.

I always have a negative point towards those who buys expensive cloth... Because to my eyes, majority (not all) buy for their brand only although some are like us, buy for quality and workmenship...

My friends react the same way. They all think I've wasted my money, that is until I show them my music through my headphones. My boyfriend had the best reaction, went from laughing at the price to going out and looking at reviews across the web. He ended up buying an Aune T1 and HD600

An excellent combination - a dark bread, preferably rye, peanut butter and goat cheese and a real apricot jam and with milk and banana blend.
