That's rich.

I can't tell much of a difference between the sq of my note 3 with neutron music player, ipod touch 4g and my sansa clip+. Hope that my opinions aren't worth any less around these parts.

I got lectured by a Beats fanGIRL last time but it was when I first started, I have nothing to defend so I just walked away pretended she's right and now everyone calls me "Headphone master' because of a small tour on some of my IEMs around the school with my friends etc no more B**** talk biggrin.gif [but it did created some unfriendly people who owns beats].

I still wish to test the new Beats range thought xD

David, try the TekFusion TwinWoofer. It's the bass that Beats offers except slightly better smily_headphones1.gif

@justaname, the FiiO X1 at 100 USD should appeal to u. It is a great and budget friendly way to get into DAPs.

@BillsonChang007 the beats solo 2 sound very refined, with a great new design. Only weaknesses are rolled off treble, slightly thick sounding lower mids and a closed in sound. But overall it is very relaxing and warm sounding

Having owned the X5, sansa clip zip, now the AK120 and random assortments of demos and such in the past, they really do make a difference. Though, it's not even close to the same difference as changing headphones. The AK120 I have now which sells for over $800 even on the used market is not the same quality increase per dollar ratio as going from $300 headphones to $800-900 headphones (such as HD598 to HD800)

Though I found it significantly better in that the sound was cleaner, better imaging and soundstaging and slightly better tonality and balance.
But IMO sansa clip zip + ksc75 endgame is where it's at. XP

I used to be quite the same way.
On another lesser quality forum I am referred to as a headphone god/master and lots of people there hate me because they get called out by everyone for spouting their beats marketing BS.

As for real life I'm just well recognized as a hobbyist and most of my friends who own beats know they aren't by any measure real audiophile headphones.

I prefer dynamic drivers for bass, BA for everything else.

 

But that's just me!

u are right in a way. single BA drivers are not known for bass eg sony XBA-10
