[NYT] Headphones with Swagger (and Lots of Bass) - Page 21

post #201 of 204
As a member of the Head-Fi community I'm not going to bother to read this thread or rage comment on the article or beats. It's almost like bait.

However I will say that anyone whose looking for a real pair of headphones for a reasonable price should feel free to send me a message.

As for the basshead market, the XB series is good and the ATH-M50's are alright if you want a good for almost everything type headphone that is still bassy, however the Audio Technica PRO700MK2's are the end all be all of bass impact, amount and quality. They do this without mudding up the mids or sacrificing any of the other ranges, it's very well controlled. You know why? Audiotechnica, Sennheiser, AKG, Beyerdynamic, Grados, etc are professional companies who deals directly with studios and organizations like the CMA's and Grammies. They deal with people whom they want to form a close relationship with, audiophiles. For example, my rabbit chewed through one of my cables, and despite that kind of damage not being covered under warranty they fixed it for free.
Monster and Beats (and skull candy and turtle beach etc etc) are consumer companies that will milk you mercilessly who are not accountable for their quality and thrive off "swagger" and image as opposed selling a refined product.

Way to be that guy and point out that I revived a dead thread.

In all seriousness though, my bad. I should've let sleeping dogs lie but I wasn't aware the dog was sleeping in the first place.

I'm on Head-Fi, Headroom, and a few others too. I run a few threads on my on boards too. It honestly makes me laugh to see people buying these things. Overpriced 5x easily. I have XB500s modded and painted, going to cable mod them soon too, they look sexy as hell, and sound just as good if not better than the top of the line beats, 50s, ludas. Next basshead purchase will probably be 770pros though. +1 to FLAC+Sansa Clip Zip+sick can's. I don't even need a amp/dac really. Wear my sheit in the gym too.
