Non-audiophile reactions to high-end headphones Part II - Page 45

post #661 of 4029

I never give my headphones to anybody for a listen , cause they are used to the "FUN" sound , my reaction to them "No you can't have a listen cause you will not be able to appreciate the sound"

The irony is that even I use to use a absurd EQ not now :D

I am now used to the traditional HiFi sound paradigm :D

It seems in the comments section most people disagree.......

The comments are basically idiotic, someone chimed in that the LCD-3 would be down to $500 next year, I would be happy to throw down the cost of those phones if someone else on here wants to take the bet they'll be that low next year. 

 

Otherwise I think the reviewer is right on one point, once you reach a certain level with the high end phones it is more a game of inches.

Sometime lurker, first time poster.

You'd probably be able to buy 1/4 of an LCD3 for that price. tongue.gif

Yeah, well, uh, no. What I'm seeing here is the vast majority of people being ignorant and stupid as usual, and a very few couple of people who seem to know something.

But seriously, these are some of the dumbest comments I've seen in a long while.

 

In March of 2003, an investment of $1,945 could have bought you 445 ounces of silver, which you could have sold in April of 2011 for $21,400... Those headphones will be worth about $50 at a pawn shop, next year. Just say'in.

 

The last article I read about expensive headphones belittled everyone that spent a lot of money on them. But because these are considered high-end its ok. Even the people in the comment section were talking about how stupid it was to spend $150 on headphones. I guess it all depends on who makes them and whether the maker is considered to be high end, stylish, or en-vogue.

 

and in a few months, when people are still buying cheap headphones that sound good enough, we'll have forgotten these and the company gone out of business without even a second thought

 

I wouldn't want those, I'd be afraid that sand would get in my ears! (LOL WUT)

 

Man, I love it when people talk authoritatively about things they have zero information or knowledge about. devil_face.gif

Afraid of getting sand in their ears??? Whut? That's like seeing a car in a dealer ship and saying "I won't drive that I'm afraid it might fly into the sun."

TBH, most of us do not know that much more than the average consumer. 

 

Do we know the profit margins for high-end headphones, and base our decisions and valuations on them, or do we blindly follow manufacturer claims and marketing ploys? 

 

Are we really that much more informed than the 'average consumer' we so often make fun of? Or do we just belong to a niche, but are equally clueless.

Then we would remain unevolved cavemen.

 

Of course, the whole notion of desirable evolution is contentious. But that belongs to another debate, mainly a semantic one. 'Unevolved' here is used mainly for convenience sake.

^Very well said.

 

You know that vid of the audeze driver with colored sand bouncing on it? That is what he referred to.

Sometimes we are really greedy. We often complain about how he bass lacks impact or how the mids are not as lush as we expected, meanwhile, there are people more than happy with their distorting apple earbuds.

So, brought my gear down for a meet while I am in town for business, a co-worker and I get to talking about music and he says he has a bottlehead crack he built on his desk, I mention I have my HD800's with me and he wants to hear them.  I bring them into the office along with some schiit gear and a pair of grado 325is.  I had to bring him choices to compare wink_face.gif  so anyway here we are in a cube farm talking about headphones and I notice a few gophers popping up to listen in.  Some just shook their heads and sat back down, but one of them came running, literally, into the cube and asked excitedly if he could listen to the HD800's.  He said he was a college student with five kids and this was going to be his only chance to even touch them.  So, of course, I let him listen as long as he liked.  He left very happy and said if I ever come back I have to bring them with.  Meanwhile, the guy I was originally talking to said he really liked them but couldn't justify the $1000 cost to  upgrade from his HD5xx? forgot the number dangit.

Huh that's a pretty interesting story. For me I'm about to upgrade from the akg k240 mkii to sennheiser hd 600 for classical music. My plan is that I stick with the sennheiser hd 600 with schiit magni/modi for the rest of my life.... But down the road I'll probably want to get a better amp/dac and the hd 800. But honestly I hope I don't cause everything on headfii makes me think people care more about the tech than the music. Idk we shall see than.......
