Beats by Dre...Why not? - Page 9  

post #81 of 156
I think the threshold frequency where most adults start to "feel" the bass is around 30-25hz and below. It is different for everybody so, its hard to say.

test it out yourself:

Anything below 40hz, expect to feel it, even with headphones.

I think I just tested 16,000 hertz and felt a sharp pain in my hear.

Yes sir, it does indeed hurt. I felt it pretty quickly.
post #85 of 156
Yep, as expected, the ones that really matter tone wise for most music is about 40Hz - 14,000 Hz.

Notice what the word 'equal' in 'equalizer' means.....

You could of bought some Ultrasone PRO750s with the cash..oh gees, moving on. Also please don't tell me you are plugging it into onboard sound....

If a cases offered less room / options, was 3x overpriced, and didn't even look as good as other case with more room and they were also cheaper but however that computer case was hyped up, would you buy it?

*But wait, people still buy overpriced mobos like the ASUS Crosshair IV Formula*
*Oh goddamit*

A sucker's a sucker.
Which pair is that graph supposed to represent though? Don't forget there are like four different pairs of on ear and over ears. They don't all have the same drivers. I'm not sure how you can argue about the quality of a pair of headphones and you are talking about the wrong pair of headphones?

For now I've got a cheap little external Creative card(the X-fi 5.1 external, used it for my G51 laptop before I built my current sig rig last month or so), been waiting for more funds to come in and I have my eye on some of the Asus and Creative cards, but thats going to have to wait for this summer.

That equalizer sounds good to my ears, not everyone is the same and it will range depending on the type of music you listen to, so what you're saying makes no sense. I listen to a lot of rock, and the lows of the Pro's aren't as pronounced as the Black Eyes Peas demo makes them out to be, so they needed a bump for me, along with the highs. The songs sounded too crowded with white noise and it was hard for me to make out different harmonies or instruments with the mids balanced with the highs and lows, so yeah I decreased how pronounced they were and it works for me and they sound perfect.

Also, I have the Maximus IV, basically the Intel version of the Crosshair...lol...but what you're forgetting is that I got both the Beats Pros AND the Maximus IV at extreme discounts that would make me an idiot not to invest in them. I only paid about $230 for the Pros(which retails at $400), and only about 200 for the Maximus IV(which retails around $350). Whatever you might believe, there are no better deals than those when it comes to both products.

Maybe when it comes to those products, but to other comparable products, they are bad deals.

I agree. If you wanted a HT setup, well that is a different matter. I'll be sure to take a look at the samples when I get back to my apartment. Its finals week and I have been living inside a library all week.

I'll reply to the insane buyer justification rant of Moo later. Play some CSS and/or BF2 first.
