No, it's just you could of done got better for the price. Just saying. They aren't inheritly bad sounding, just bad sounding for the price. Oh yeah and marketing and brand recognition works.

They didn't even used to let people with headphones like that in . I think enough people complained though.

People here really hate them because not only are they "mediocre" headphones, but they are very overpriced, so there are tons better options, even below the price range usually.

-eh, i got them for $90 in '08 and the comparable sennheisers and skullcandy's and sonys i tried were prob $50 more. i'll agree you can get better cups now for $100 but at the time they were a decent purchase and i've gotten my money's worth.

marketing and brand recognition is directly related to availability and likelihood that products will be on sale. not being a member of a huge online information resource at the time, i did much of my research based upon products i could try either in the store or borrow from someone, since i'm picky about the fit and feel of headphones, so my product pool was limited- by the fact that i didnt want to order something online and end up hating- to products available in stores in east TN (which is a severely limited offering)

I don't know what to get for Christmas, so I'm just throwing this out here. What headphones can I get for about 100 euro? I already have AD700 for gaming and Shure SE210 for commuting.

This would be for listening to music (mostly alternative rock and other rock subgenres). Has to be closed, circumaural yet portable if that exists (so no big arcs or cups like AD700). Comfort is a must.

Am I missing anything? Thanks.

$215 on amazon now, used to go for $300 aparently. i can tell you right now, they make bose tri port sound like ****.

also, sorry for the garbage picture quality. i took that with my cell phone

so, do i make the club? or should have i actually gotten hd 555's over these? i wanted something portable. people seem to think earbuds suck here

by the way, to list some headphones ive had in my time:



some 518's



these koss marshmellows actually had alot of bass, not detailed, was muddy but ALOT of bass.



these vmoda vibe, ive had vibe II's as well.



these bose triport



quiet comfort 3's


etymotic er6's



these heshes and the crappy earbud skullcandy's



this altec lansing iphone headset

ive had more but these generally come to mind. these sennheiser cx6 rape any of those ive had including the bose triports/quiet comfort 3's, the senn 518's, the er6's... they are awesome imo. the clarity i havent heard ever in headphones yet.


ive owned tri ports, like i said earlier, those are just a few of the headphones iv'e owned. aparently my new sennheiser cx6 arent even good enough for the club. bose tri ports ARE GARBAGE, barely even better than $5 set of skullcandy's. ive HAD them. i can SAY this with no remorse. sure, bose headphones have alot of bass, but its GARBAGE sounding bass. my $150 pair of etymotic ER6's didnt have as much bass as my $400 quiet comfort 3's but the bass was about 30 times more detailed, the mids and highs were clear sounding, unlike the bose. bose just skimps out everywhere on quality. for example, bose's companion 5.1 has a sub which is pretty damn loud for a sub driver that size. the speakers can get very loud, however they sound like GARBAGE from the 250-2000 htz range. the sub 250 htz range is extremely muddy, why the hell is their sub even going up to 250+ htz? a sub driver should NEVER go past 80 htz in most situations for quality sound. past 80 htz, sound becomes directional, why would you want to be aple to pin the location of the sub so easily? the 2000+ htz range of these $400 speakers sound like garbage and very tingy. it sounds almost like garbage JVC bookshelf tweeters from a $15 boombox.

bose is however a very smart company. they market home theater in a box better than any company possible. the only two companies i'd get home theater in a box from are gallo and orb audio. think about it. bose sounds better than nearly everything else in best buy aside from polk audio and klipsch. they have name recognition, meaning if somone heard my advent prodigy towers driven by my NAD T751 right next to bose companion 2.1 speakers, they'd immediately say the bose are better, not even carign which sounds better. this is how people are. my bx5a's sound better than the $400 bose set, the bass is WAY more detailed, not boomier or even punchier, but DETAILED. i'd take these bx5a's with a bx10s over bose's most expensive possible system. the bose 301's were the only good bose speakers ever made imo.

bose is one of the smartest companies in existance though. they will take like 25 random people, ask them to try out like 20 sets of spekaers theve made to make a new model all with different materials. they will then pick the lowest common denominator in which most of the people cant tell the difference in quality which is the cheapest speaker to make, meaning bose uses the cheapest possible speaker materials, enclosure materials in which the AVERAGE person cant really tell a difference in quality to save costs. its almost ingenius; know this though. bose is using the cheapest garbage crap possible in which they can to where the average retard cant tell the difference in sound quality because everyone is used to the garbage ipod headphones and the new garbage ruined music by the apple corperation which is mastered for garbage ipod headphones which people would throw away my sennheiser cx6 for. i'm not even kidding. the average person would litterally throw away my sennheiser cx6 for a pair of ipod headphones.

i will not stop bashing bose because i think it's hilarious the average person thinks they are SOOO good when i can list TONS of brands better off the top of my head.

like:

energy
klipsch
polk's high end crap
jmlab
psb
wharfdale diamond
older advents
mcintosh
quad
gallo
jbl's high end crap
pioneer's high end crap
theil
m audio
krk
yamaha's better speakers
swan
focal
boston acoustics
audioengine
harman and kardon
even though i hate them, bang and olufson
cambridge audio
martin logan
pinnicle
acoustic research
aperion
bowers and wilkons
dayton
definitive technology
infinity
meridian
pure acoustics
usher
velodyne


the list could go on... all of those brands are better than bose in every way possible aside from a couple having extreme low end products. why would any retard ever want bose? btw i got my bose quiet comfort 3's for FREE, the tri ports were a gift years ago. i have never paid out of my pocket for bose speakers and never will.

You lie. Bose is best. I never even heard of those companies. And therefore they are bad.
