Non-audiophile reactions to high-end headphones Part II - Page 244

post #3646 of 3941

Surprisingly enough my friends are rather receptive to the anti beats thing. One bought the PortaPro, and Klipsch Reference S4i, another the Sony MDR-ZX100 another the Monoprice 9927, and I gave another the same 9927.

why would you be anti-beats? The solo 2's and studio 2's are great. Studio 2's have just as much detail as a v-moda m100 in all honesty, yet v-moda doesn't get bashed? Meh. Neither are worth it IMO anyways. I just wont blatantly hate them either.

The 2nd run of beats aren't horrible, but the pose a bad value.

V-moda doesn't get bashed cuz it's not beats.

Beats marketing suck as well as many beats owners.

Lol..

Last night I played some ALAC and the same on MP3 from Amazon (256k LAME encoded) for my wife and she could tell the difference immediately.  I'm so proud of her.

I don't like Beat's marketing. They come up with a bunch of bull.

And we have to pay for the marketing, which is why I don't like them

Soon you'll have to pay to cover for the $3,000,000,000 (more dramatic with all the zeros) cost of acquisition.

 

Nothing is bad (except maybe cancer). It all boils down to price point. Beats Studio are okay... if they were to charge $50. They sound like $25 headphones with a slightly premium finish.

There is no bad product just a bad price point right? I know, beats simply aren't at the correct price point,that's all.

I was struggling to put into words and your sentence is spot on.

Saw it in a review of the nvidia 8800 Ultra. Think it was AnandTech.

 

Anyway, handed my aunt my MDR-ZX100 and her iPhone 4S with some 320kb MP3 from deezer. She started bobbing her head and then asked "Can I get one of these?" Of course she did quite like the price.

Are MDR-ZX100s considered high quality audio? Always thought they were cheap, bad sounding headphones. Maybe its just the price.

It's been a long time since I looked into the budget scene. Do you expect me to know the prices of every headphone?
