Rookie head-fier seeking advice

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi I'm an audiophile that's new here. I want to get the monster inspirations as a fashion statement but would like to how good the the passive version blocks out noise at volumes from 25% to 60% (BTW, I own psb and sennheiser momentum)

... I think the Senn Momentum and PSB are fashion statements already >.> honestly

 

Besides that I don't know much about them... I've not heard the Monster cans but I can assure you sonically they won't sound as nice as the Senns or the Psb M4U 

 

And Oh the passive version should isolate no better than the Momentum and PSB M4, >.> Enjoy your fashion headphones though

Heya,

 

Just to help you out, I'm 90% positive that there's no one here with that headphone. You might want to ask on a forum that is more focused on audio-jewelry.

 

Not trying to be rude, mind.

 

Not knowing anything, I will bet it will provide about 15 to 18 db of passive isolation. Just like any other plastic headphone.

 

Very best,

Thanks for all the help. I think that the momentum is more classy and I am looking for beats aesthetics with slightly better SQ. The M4U2 is too heavy to wear on the neck for fashion. (Btw,I look like Lando Clarissan's weird assistant with them on outside)

I just checked out the inspirations reviews on head if. Some of the guys say they sound decent though not fantastic compared to audiophile cans. If I'm not wrong,someone gave them 4 stars

The ATH-WS70s wear pretty well.

At least it's not quite as bad as asking which Bose Lifestyle system to buy on an audiophile speaker forum. LOL
