But lets face it. Headphones haven't gone mass market because people give a diddley damn about sound. Headphones have gone mainstream because they have become fashion accessories. What they look like, and the degree of brand status they confer, are far more important to the average yahoo than so minor a consideration as sound.
Hugo Boss is a prestigious brand. Hence, headphones that have the words "Hugo Boss" printed on them must be great headphones, right? I would go so far as to say that Hugo Boss headphones are 1000 times better than those ugly Grado or AKG thingies that Paris and Perez have never heard of. I mean, like, umm, y'know, like, what good are headphones that Paris and Perez have never heard of, HELLO!!!???
You guys have no clue how good it really gets...My Mark Nason headphones and Loro Pianan amp are better than everything out there by a mile. Oh, and don't forget the Roger Dubuis cables for good measure.
