Which is what I think of when I think "hipster" anyway, but maybe different countries have different looking hipsters?

What you describe as hipsters wearing, in UK we call them a "chav" or plural "chav's" biggrin.gif

Hmm..."hipster"..."hippie"...

Yeah, a definite hippie vibe is what I'm getting from those pictures. Huh. I think that's where hippie came from. Who knows? :D

Still love my matte black studios. For a portable, great case, sound is good, cable is decent and noise cancellation is take it or leave, but the overall package works.

Besides the M100, what would others consider the best portable setup? The m100 hurt my head after about 10 min of use and I didn't prefer their sound sig to the studios. What else comes with a decent case, detachable cables and sounds as good as the studio?

Sennheiser Momentum.? or even relatively cheap phones like AKG K451 & Koss Pro dj200 have nice cases and removable cables; Gosh even a pair of Goldrings I bought for £15 a few years ago had a removable cable

Just a little info for you younger Beats lovers out there, and I know it will come as a shock but Beats DID NOT invent the removable cable. The times I've heard that feature being used by people trying to justify thsir purchase, the other one being 'they just work' I should blooming hope they do although for how long is debatable

Did beats invent the beats by dr dre removable cable though? blink.gif

I really like the beats audio cables - very nice and high quality and I think the red cables give more warmth to the SQ biggrin.gif

While we're being bigoted:

Bang & Olufsen, ostentatious Danish art objects that have the secondary purpose of making anemic sounds reminiscent of nasal European accents and must be good because they have pretty looking stores in airports and malls therefore commanding a high price premium, purchased by businessmen and women who want to impress each other while flying first-class and keep at the counter near the door at home under an European glass chandelier also recommended to them by the Bang & Olufsen salesman.

Bose, for people who want to be prepared for that 2-10 hours of flying time per year and will pay a premium for that noise-cancellation thing which will fail after only a few flights where they can still hear the ******* airplane noises and keep their eyes closed so that people around them don't realize they aren't sleeping peacefully like the Bose packaging promised they would, and will only ultimately cause the owners to have misdirected rage at everything except the $300 cheap plastic paper driver headphones when just trying to listen to some ******* mp3's while reading a Pimsleur language learning book at home and all they can hear is that damn incessant droning noise-cancellation noise.

Audio-Technica, for people who like anime and manga and probably draw self-portraits of themselves wearing the headphones.

Grado, for people who wouldn't know what real instruments sound like if it hit them over the head.

Ultrasone, for people who want to pay $2,500 for earpads made out of some dead exotic sheep from Ethiopia and get ventriloquist sound staging which sounds good after lowering standards enough

Sennheiser, for people who subconsciously feel bad about what happened to Germany in WWI and WWII and want to help rebuild the economy.

Sony, for people who still hope for the return of the glory-days before Sony got a white CEO and became more dysfunctional than your average modern family unit.

Any of the foreign cheap labor audio companies, for people who gladly contribute to their own countries' economic woes and have a morbid fascination of how big the Pacific trash vortex can get.

Low fidelity gear, for people who.... ok I can't seem to find anything bigoted to say about these people, other than that people who use stock earphones are people of no consequence.

Mid-fi gear, for people who don't realize music is mastered like ****, and audio reproduction is tuned like ****, so that the net result they hear is "good sound".

Hi-fi gear, for people who only listen to music made before the 1990's because people won't master things right anymore, waste countless hours of their lives listening to the same album over and over again with tiny tweaks and changes to try to get the sound to be more "accurate" even though due to the limitations of audio recording and reproduction gear they will never be able to get accurate reproduction of something as simple as bird chirping.



where do you fit in with all that?

i've no idea where I fit in with it

but I guess its just a piece of fun anyhoot biggrin.gif

Not sure if you took one part of my post and ran with it, but I'm not saying beats were the first to introduce a removable cable. That said, I do think they are a good all around set of cans that include both the removable cable and a nice hard case (which I also find Important ( a small hard case for portability). Oh and the new studios actually sound good people. I know they are beats and the coolest thing to do is bag on a set most haven't even heard, or refuse to listen because they say beats on them. However, the new studios don't sound like old beats. Not that I care to really change anyone's mind. I'm happy with my purchase.
