Plus, GET RID. OF THE. LAPTOPS. I would never buy one. Not a good investment. For 1200$, you could buy a gaming laptop that has the same chipset as a 500$ desktop.

Yeah it really sucks being able to play Bioshock Infinite while lying in bed. :D

 

And $1200? Man, that would have been nice.

Third, they lack moddability. Fourth, not good for professional programmers, music producers, or anything other than someone that got it for free from their job.

 

I have a huge Steam library on my Mac. :confused:

Got any reasons that you could possibly name that could even compete with my 100% logical reasons? My school has a bunch of 1400$ apple computers, and they absolutely suck compared to the 600$ windows computers that they use for the digital design classes.

Now pm me if you have further replies, I wish to get back to audio topics on this thread.

LOL fair point. But yeah, Steam's there. Apple vs PC is another argument for another day. I'm not gonna say you "should" prefer Apple. I just do, and I have the money to buy one. Isn't that sorta how headphones work? Honestly, are Audeze LCD3's $1500 better sounding than Philips X1 or whatever? That's up to the consumer to decide.

Yeah. Don't really want to see PC vs Apple. I'm just gonna say that everyone has their own reasons/needs and point of view on consumer products.

I think both Yeezus and MCHG were let downs but still solid, NWTS was only okay but still had its moments.

Born sinner is an album I'll love for years to come. One of the best things out of the rap world in a long time. Here's MY top 10 rap albums of 2013:
1. Acid Rap - Chance the Rapper
2. Something Else - Tech N9ne
3. Marshall Mathers LP2 - Eminem
4. Born Sinner - J. Cole
5. Knock Madness - Hopsin
6. Yeezus - Kanye West
7. My Name is My Name - Pusha T
8. Because the Internet - Childish Gambino
9. Nothing was the Same - Drake
10. Doris - Earl Sweatshirt.

Pretty much. I love my li'l Appuh but I know plenty of people who would throw it out the window if they had to spend a full day with one. 

 

By the way. You know what's amazing in good headphones? Drone/sludge metal.

 

 

When people ask why headphones need good bass, I give them this.

I'll give you MNIMN and Doris, but none of the rest, LOL. What about Wolf, Run the Jewels, Stranger than Fiction, Stay Trippy, Trap Lord, Legends Never Die, Government Plates, Old, Night's Gambit, or Long.Live.A$AP?

(basically the same software, but without all of the quirky, funny reactions to things you say, and it has a different voice. Siri was developed in part by Microsoft, and siri on iPhone uses Bing, the Microsoft search engine.)My backup audio player is my old phone, which I only need to charge every 3 days might I add, but I also only have a 2 GB SD card in it, and I don't feel like buying a second one, plus it doesn't have an equalizer, and its audio is a little on the crappy side of quality. My Nokia lumia's audio was the best I've heard from a mobile device, and I've heard iPod touch Gen 4, iPod shuffle, hp laptops, and a few more. Its equalizer is just so nice, and it has Dolby headphone for when I'm playing games... Sucks for music and videos however.

LOL, sadly I can't. All three get used daily (only have a total of 32GB between them) and one has my name engraved in it and was turned into a watch (gotta love the 6th gen nano, huge convo starter) which I got as a gift for grad. 

I have an old phone (really old) that takes MicroSD cards. It has water damage and only works while plugged in for 30 minutes, then resets its self lol. You want it? Also, only works with the crap LG earbuds that came with it (no 3.5mm jack)

 

BTW, Apple only switched to Bing about a year ago I think (around the time maps came out I believe) in order to get away from Google.

Which Lumia did you have?

PS: my ipods are 5th, 6th gen nano and 2nd gen touch. Not exactly power house music players lol.

Still wondering if I'm a bass head at heart, or more of an audiophile... Scratch that question. I still love to hear, or rather FEEL bass hitting my head... I just also enjoy flat sound... I AM A CONFUSED AUDIOPHI'BASSHEAD!!!!

I don't like using this phrase at all but I think this constitutes it pretty well. *Ahem* First World Problems. LOL.

Come to think of it, I made that list before getting into old. Still haven't listened to Wolf. Don't like Stay Trippy, Trap Lord, or Long Live A$AP, haven't heard the rest.

I think for me, Old would bump Doris off the list. It had some really good songs but was really underwhelming.

How many on my list have you not heard?
