Today he stopped by on his way out of town and I let him hear my RS1is through the Little Dot with Voskhods and after one song, he looks at me and says, "Well sh*t Joe, thanks for ruining the 80s for me." 

 

He sounds like a character. :D

"No I don't want to try them. Mine sound fine" ipod buds vs HD650...

Not a reaction per say, but I found this in the comment box of a bass-boosted version of a song I was listening to. I found it rather funny :D

I used to think my Bose IE's sounded pretty decent, but after being subjected to higher quality audio for close to a year now I can't believe how tinny and lifeless they actually sound. Oh well, time to upgrade...

If the Philips Fidelio S2's sound half as good as people say, I'll probably get a pair for my fiancee too, for her birthday. Time for her to grow out of her age old Nokia earbuds. :evil:

Yeah I did. It was late and I was too lazy to do a good job at it. You can't really recognize the name though.

Actually, I can see your name assuming it was you commenting..

 

Looking closely I can identify both names, actually.

My mom when she listened to my headphoens setup said to me: '' I dont want to get up now, I now understand why you spend so much time listening to music''

basically everyone who heard my system is completely blown away.

 

The dac helps too!

Actually I wasn't sure whether it was branden or brandon. The other was simple, also found the YouTube channel, though not the video (yet)

Read this on a review for bose Ae2 which are notorious for being extremely boosted in mids and poor lows.

I thought it was a little amusing, maybe his earbuds just have no bass at all, that's my guess.

Thats odd.

 

I have the oe2 which i think sounds similar to the ae2 and there is no way the apple earbuds sound better even out of an ipod. Also, the bass isnt that prominent on them to my ears.

Meh... I'd rather stay as far away as possible from Bose... There's a kid at my school who thinks Bose and beats are the best brands money can buy.
