Have they no SHAME....?
I don't mind the posts showing what Munkong sells..... Just make sure they sell them to us at half retail.....
Totally agree! I hope other headphones are immune to Dr Dre disease haha.
They might just put the Beats on top of the shelf because they are rarely auditioned by someone so they don't have to climb up often lol.
Come on, don't start the flame lol. I'm against them posting what they are selling too. It's kinda like promoting Munkong but that's just one picture, no? And as kiertijai mentioned, they are loaned by a single person so I think it is not their intention to do marketing (not that they could get more customers posting here though). It's kinda like hijacking the thread if they just start posting the review one by one but they still limited to comparison b/w Abyss/takeT/Float. That should be fine. Maybe it's more appropriate to start the new thread but this is like a continuing episode from the earlier.
Just contact the mod if you think it's inappropriate and maybe, only leave the pics audition scene in the thread and also blur all Munkong poster lol
Nice pictures though. I'm impressed that they can gather so many good cans at one place. Would love to hear more about Abyss! Please continue with appreciations and impressions, you rich folks
My apologies, kiertijai, for giving you the wrong impression. In context of your post, I have no problems with you mentioning Munkong.
I was extremely impressed with the collection.
I can see that I will have to make more judicious use of the emoticons and sarcasm meter as each post requires.
Linking to a set of impressions from another site shouldn't be construed as spam automatically, especially if they are relevant to the discussion. The site Kiertijai linked to was discussing the meet in which the impressions were taken. Had Kiertijai just posted impressions without any link as reference, I'm sure other people would have chimed in saying "where do these impressions come from?"
Spam is posting stuff that isn't helpful or generally construed as 'garbage,' and this entails linking to another site for the purpose of promoting that site or yourself. I do not see kiertijai's post as that at all. Kiertijai is one of the most dedicated people I've met in this hobby, and one of the most free of pretenses. His post actually contributed a lot by linking to impressions with a lot of helpful information. The real irony is, the posts that were trying to call him out on spamming were actually more like spam in that they basically increased the noise to signal ratio in this thread.
Excellent impressions, by the way. I think they're spot on based on my experience of owning the three headphones. For my tastes it's more or less
Abyss > Floats > TakeT
Though the Floats are also favorites of mine right now, with their own distinct type of presentation and sound. The Abyss just hits hard in comparison. The bass on the TakeT is actually more plentiful to me (they sound bassier), but control and tightness of the Abyss are much more precise.
If you're concerned about a few adverts showing up in a post, perhaps this place is not for you... Have you seen all the adds that are on these head-fi pages now!!!?? Complete with roll over sound.
Thanks for sharing the fresh impressions kiertijai.
Thanks for the post Kiertijai, I think that helps to put it in perspective.
