160 gigabytes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted

Pros: CAPACITY, the UI is nice and the album slideshow is awesome, battery life is good,

Cons: Not solid state (this capacity in ss would cost $300 more), Apple does not have FLAC support

There really isn't a whole lot to say. This player will hold a s*!t-load of music and/or movies and/or pictures, but I only use it for music. The hard disk is a little loud at times and it lags somewhat as well, but at 160 gb they couldn't have put solid state drives in yet.

Flak is only partly deserved

Pros: Comfort, beauty, crystal clear sound, so light they almost feel fake, open design.

Cons: Weak without amp, can't rest around the neck, the bars that run on the top feel flimsy. NEEDS MOAR POWAH

  First impressions - Upon first opening the box of these (lightly used) cans, the very first thing I noticed how light they were! In all honesty I was freaking out for about an hour, then went to a local used electronics shop where they had the same model a couple weeks back. Apparently they are SUPPOSED TO BE that light, so the relief swept over me.    Sound - I do not have an amp yet, so talking like I know anything would be out of line. Straight lined to a computer the bass is just enough for classical piano. Listening to the album the is in the picture, the experience is amazing. If you close your eyes, you feel like you are sitting in an amphitheater...

Not sure why these were recommended

Pros: Cheap, kind of comfortable, good "soundstaging?"

Cons: Bass is at a negative level, incredibly cheap materials

This is going to be a short review.   -When I took them out of the box they felt like crap, like the smallest amount of pressure would snap the headband in two or more pieces.   -Upon first wearing they weren't nearly as tight or sweat inducing as the Skullcandy T.I.'s I had at the time.   The sound was nasty. I do not know if this "burn in" thing you people talk about counts with these things or not, but I didn't even want to try.   If you can't get them for less than twenty bucks then keep your money.

Pros: Sound good overall, looks good

Cons: Tight fit, uber long cord, has a muddy tone, the closed design and leather pads induce sweating

Okay I'm not going to fill this area with a bunch of BS terms I'm just going to say it straight up.   I bought the headphones from a really nice used shop locally, and I was told they were pretty decent. Upon first applying them to the not forehead (because that would be retarded behavior), I noticed the isolation was quite impressive. The guy that worked there was talking but I couldn't hear a damned thing he was saying. The song I tested it with was King Crimson's "Epitaph." The power they gave off was very nice and despite what the assistant said, the bass was of a great level, not too high and not too low. When I got home I listened to American IV by Johnny cash and let me...
