The only thing I want out of a pair of headphones is for them to sound as good as they do in the store (Best buy) when i try them on. That's it. I don't think I am being unreasonable. This is so frustrating that I am running out of ways to describe what I am going through.
I have spend SO MUCH TIME trying headphones out , only to get them home to be disappointed yet again.
I understand that it all depends on the source of what I am playing as well as the headphones.
I have tried:
MP3's encoded as high as 320Kbs
e07k Headphone Amp
Graphic EQ Apps
I am seriously so frustrated right now.
I am using 2 pair of headphones right now. Sony MDR-V150 and Philips SHN9500
I realize these are very old and low quality headphones, but, this only proves what I am trying to say. I have come home from the store with BOSE, Sony, Audio-technica,...etc....etc and NONE of these headphones sound any better than what I have. Maybe "VERY VERY little", but, nothing even worth spending the money on.
And, the reviews I read on some of the above listed headphones are VERY high ! People bragging about how deep the bass is, and , crystal clear treble ,...etc...etc.. honestly, I feel like I am caught in some type of bad joke.
Again, I just went to walmart and read some reviews an a pair called Monster nTune. I recall one of the reviewers saying "The highs are sparkling without being fatiguing and the bass is POWERFUL without the slightest bit of distortion". Where ?!?!?! I plugged these in , and, once again, they sound NO DIFFERENT than what I own.
I am utterly disgusted right now.
Am I missing something? PLEASE. If someone can shed some light on this for me, it would really really be a big help.
Maybe my expectations are too high ?
Sorry if I appear rude or whiny. I am just at the end of my rope with all of this. In the early to mid 80's I had a set of KOSS headphones hooked to my stereo. I miss them. Very much. The only time I hear any thing comparable, was when i put the BOSE on at Best Buy, but, once again, when i bring them home, they seemed to have left the good quality sound at best buy.
