Well i find it annoying when uninformed people tell me beats are the best headphones known to man. I was talking at school today about what headphones I should get. People were suggesting beats and I told them I already knew they were ****. I got flamed and told I know nothing, called a loser, etc.
That is why people hate beats. BTW I'm getting Sennheiser HD 598.
Well, if you want to get them back, ask them to describe the sound signature using technical terms, then giggle as they have no idea.
"beats are the best headphones ever!"
"Oh, really? How's the soundstage? Are the highs sparkly or dull? How is the attack? Do they have good transparency?"
"Uhh... no idea what those mean, but they have good bass!"
"Boomy or punchy?"
Just tell them that headphones can only take you so far. Ears are the ultimate "weakest link" in a head fi setup and its obvious yours are sonically superior to theirs on all levels. You wont be disappointed with the HD 598. I have the 595 and amp driven they sound incredible for 200$ cans. Expect a long burn in though.
