Non-audiophile reactions to high-end headphones Part II - Page 304

post #4546 of 4549
YES! I somehow managed to convert a friend of mine from a pair of SE215s all the way to him seriously considering getting a 3 driver custom. I am so proud of myself.

Maybe I should get paid for this :P

If she's just been using run of the mill $5 IEMs or whatever, then she probably just fell in love with the general increase in sound quality more than any particular part.  You could have her listen to some of your other gear and ask her to compare them.

It could be possible that she just likes the forward, energetic sound of the M50. What if I put the X2 on her ears and she says they're no good? I don't know if I could take that kind of..rejection. Actually, she has to love the X2. I think of it as an open M50 on steroids(the kind of steroids that fix every flaw.)

But why stop at cans? I'm thinking about inviting her over to my pad, and letting her hear my stereo setup. It will blow her away! :basshead:

Honestly, it'd be easier for them, since they'll use terms like bassy and clearer, rather than "energetic" or "musical" which don't really mean anything.
