Best BUY was to have an exclusive on the Monster DNA Pro Over the ear model but that exclusivity may be over.

just checked em out on best buy's website, they look pretty nice! i never thought i'd even buy a monster product tbh but these dna's are pretty good.

Hmm, you know I always thought about how people say "sorry to your wallet" on Head-Fi. But when you think about speakers, headphones seems like a bargain. I know they serve somewhat different purposes, but they are all for audio reproduction. So I guess three cheers for not getting hooked on speakers?

Nope. They both are wallet killers.

 

The nature of how quickly new headphones pop up, along with the abundance of companies offering them, topped off with the fact they don't weigh 40lb+ each makes headphones far more disposable and wallet busting. I should know. I've been a speaker enthusiast far longer than I've been on Head-Fi, and Head-Fi has killed my wallet quicker.

 

The speaker enthusiast path starts at Pioneer System + under $300 receiver + under $300 sub -> Klipsch/JBL/KEF etc... system + under $700 receiver + under $700 sub -> Internet Direct speaker companies like Seaton Sound and JTR Speakers + $2,000 receiver + $2,000+ subs -> DIY Speakers + Pro Amps + DSP + sound measurement tools + multiple DIY subs + room treatment. Just start at DIY speaker kits or those two speaker companies and you'll have your endgame.

 

Headphones and earphones don't really have a DIY option, or an endgame. You'll neither save money, nor have control on building the sound you want. The endless search is what busts the wallet. When you do find your headphone/amp endgame.... well, I don't know. 100+ models later and I haven't found it 100% yet.

20 bucks is about average for a 32gb.  Granted its usually not the red/grey uh1 or whatever.

I had the blue ant embrace.  They are the only headphones I ever returned due to sound so bad, EQ couldn't fix it.  See Tyll's review measurements here:

less than stellar reviews here.

http://www.expertreviews.co.uk/headphones/1289683/blueant-embrace (I totally agree with this short, but spot on summary of the sound)

 

I would not recommend these at any price unless you don't care about sound (awful) and only care about build and looks (very good).
