Does Parrot make good headphones or no?
>>69322173Weren't they supposed to be a reputable brand for audio though?
>>69322169cute wife picture but her tits are too big
>>69322221low test beta male detected, i bet you use beyerdynamic headphones
First for my wife Miku! I want to lick behind her ears.
>>69322299What about her sweaty smelly feet?
>>69322169still asking:>>69321960>>69322086Then for something bluetooth and over-ear, what would you recommend? I'd like to have a pair of headphones to bring with me on the go and being wireless makes it a bit easier.
>>69322379If it HAS to be wireless + ANC then go bose. You're probably not an audiophile anyway.
>>69322405Audiophiles are pedophiles
My HE500 just arrived, other than removing the back grills and jergpads, are there any other mod i should do?
$4000 SR-009 was rated lower in blind tests than a $200 K701http://www.aes.org/e-lib/browse.cfm?elib=17441LOL, Stax headphones are literally audiophool garbage
>>69322457Why would you build a faraday cage around your entire setup?
>>69322413I swear she looked 18!
>>69322352I want to sniff her feet after a concert.
Miku feet (｡>﹏<｡)
>>69322528>>69322560I bet they get really stinky after a long concert. *SNNNNIIIIIIIIFFFFF*
Can someone drop their honest review of the Philips Fidelio X2's? The aesthetic and build quality are straight up perfect for me, but i've heard a variety of opinions on the actual sound quality, ranging from amazing to shit
>>69322457speakercels on suicide watch
First For: buy some decent headphones. Then worry about your source, because you will.
>>69322614those velour earpads look really *sniffs*
>>69322660her hands are perfectly drawn but why are her feet so :( *still sniffs* Do you think we are a cute couple now miku?
>>69322700Only if you are Rin
How did Microsoft do with their first (non-gaming) headphones?
>>69322701Do you have miku figs?
>>69322169wouldn't it be funny if I buried my face between her tits haha
>>69322766I have the huge love is War miku figure on preorder
>>69322745I guess I am Rin then.
>>69322379People who parrot Bose = garbage never heard a bose. It's a meme. They're not audiophile grade stuff, but they don't have any offensive characteristics or bad distortion. You could do a lot worse than the Bose you've chosen, even when compared to wired headphones.
>>69322654Eeeewwww, I wouldn't do that, and it's my own grundle! Might eat a little ear wax tho... Or you could Lick the Milk crate?
>>69322886hot lesbian headphone kiss.
>>69323048stop trying to shoot me anon we are a hot lesbian headphone couple now. Will you tell me you love me?
>>69322925>Milk crateWhat did he mean by this
>>69322603>>69323057Boomy bass, grainy treble, manufactured by a company that won't support it (forget about buying new earpads once yours are damaged), original MSRP put it as a more expensive product than headphones like the DT880, K702 or HD6XX which is just plain ridiculous. X2 is only worth it, if knowing all the caveats you still want it, at much reduced prices. If you see them at $300+ tell the seller to choke on sewage and die.
>>69322405Doesn't need to be noise cancelling and no, I'm not at all an audiophile, but I can appreciate a good sounding pair of headphones.>>69322888I'm just considering them, but I haven't gotten anything yet.Anything else you'd consider?
>>69323064You played me
>>69323167Sorry anon I didn't mean to hurt you. All I want is a cute miku gf to hold hands with and be together while listening to expensive headphones.
Why are mid-fi owners so insufferable? The poorfags in /iemg/ seem to be fine and the richfags in other audio forums seem to be fine, but here we have aggressive mid-fi fags attacking everything they can't afford. Can someone explain this phenomenon to me?
I just bought a pair of Beyerdynamic DT 770 250-OHM version, and I need a headphone amp but I'm not sure what to get. I'm looking to spend between $100-150 on one, but I don't know if I necessarily need one or not because I have a Pioneer DJM-300 which seems like it's powering the headphones fine(?); or is the headphone amp something that would hook into the DJM? If somebody could provide me with some help I woild grestly appreciated it!
>>69323596>but I don't know if I necessarily need one or notYou need them if you don't get enough volume from them. If you do get enough then don't bother getting one anon.
>>69323470The phenomenon is literally two posters, Nikita and Sapphire, spammig the thread h24. They just won't rest.
>>69323101i dont mind if my bass isn't tight, but grainy highs is definitely a suck. thanks for sharing
>>69323607Then recommend one in the price range
Holy fucking shit this general is just one faggot spamming his shitty waifu now what the fuck
>>69323643Don't bully my wife.(anon posting miku)
should I get an atom and an sdac, nfb 11.28, or a topping dx3pro for my he400i?
>>69323705Holy shit your house is a literal toilet
>>69323705That's dirty as hell.
>>69323805Sounds GREAT Tho
Is DSEE-HX just a meme?
Last Post cause I'm drunk
>>69323904At this point the DT1990 does most of the heavy lifting. I was Amazed to find that the HE-4xx actually sounds good driven by a phone. But Stax Is Life, f'sure.
>>69323643Not even posting best Miku
Is the Walkman a decent USB DAC?
This boomer needs to be put down man he’s completely insane and lives in a toilet bowl

>>69322603The build quality is actually fairly bad. Shit gets unglued and the cups become loose because of those retarded inside screws, and you can't even fix it.They're comfy though and got that niggerbass.

Are the hd6xx good for the price?

>>69324250why are your stax so faded?
>>69324237If you like their sound signature then yes.

>>69324367Which stax are they anyway

okay my game zeros is on the verge of breaking on me. I need suggestions for headphones $250-300 USD used for gaming and music. just need to be able to distinguish enemy footsteps and direction
>>69324541lul my grammar is not the best, meant to say headphones that are gonna be used primarily for gaming and music. not in used condition
>>69324552>headphones on the verge of breaking>recommends another flimsy headphoneSounds good tho
>>69324600what do you personally recommend for that budget??
>>69322701Stax Incels lol
>>69324644K7XX is not bad by any means but the build quality is definitely where they cut corners. DT990 & DT880 are more solidly built with good soundstage but very bright. K7XX has more soundstage tho
>>69322169Reminder that STAX is the Vinyl of headphones.
Is the Schiit Magni 2(or 3?) a good headphone amp to purchase for that price range, or is there something that would better suit the $110-150 range?
>>69324712is that your setup? how do you have such good taste?

>>69324777That's a similar product.https://www.jdslabs.com/mobile/products/190/atom-ampAtom is the spiritual successor
>>69324785And I would just connect it through the 3.5mm right? Or should I hook it through my PIONEER DJM-300 first?I recently bought a FX Audio DAC-X6 and the thing legitimately felt like it had zero volume to it.

Where were you when Marv fucking obliterated RME ADI-2 DAC?>I'll put it bluntly. I have not been so offended by the sound of anything for a long long time. This is the kind of sound that I would expect to come from ChiFi manufacturer iBasso. I didn't think it would be possible for any manufacturer to make something that sounded so nasty in 2018. One day, I will pick up an RME and find out what percentage of each part contributes to its horrid sound. Is it 50/50 DAC and amp, or 35/65 or 65/35? I'm curious.
>>69324712heh posting my before work picture are you nikita isnt it past your bed time?
>>69325432Tfw adi 2 owner
>>69325331/hpg/ existed before zeos did newfag.
Is there anything recent that resemble InnerFidelity's/Tyll's "Wall of Fame"?
>>69324785If I was to purchase this ATOM-AMP, would I need a pre-amp too or will it be enough alone?
>>69326165It's fine alone. If you aren't using a separate Dac then you would need a 3.5mm line cable (3.5mm both ends) to pc/device otherwise rca to dac.
>>69326230IS there anyway I can hook it up to my Pioneer DJM-300? I'm just curious. I think I'm going to purchase the ATOM

Any idea how to troubleshoot an amp? My Smsl sanskrit amp just went quiet mid listening. The lights work but no sound comes out. Tried changing cables too and checked with another player that the headphones work.

Hated the cable noise. Thought that they were kind of comfortable but got sore after a couple hours. I've got sennheiser momentum in ears at the moment and I love the sound signature, but the comfort is only ok. I've got air pods and the sound quality is ok, but I find they are very comfortable and portable. I've been looking at the sennheiser HD 450 BTNC and they look alright. Only issue is when I tried them on the cups were slightly small for my ears, but I'm guessing this can be replaced later on? I also liked the optional wired mode.
>>69327091Bests are shit get crusher 360
>>69327159This, you want bass? get a crusher 360 and turn the bass to the max or you aren’t a real basshead, just a wh*teboi dicklet poser
>>69327202>bose>bass sound signaturelol
>>69327215Bose have a dynamic EQ based on equal loudness that changes the amount of bass depending on how loud you listen to music. You wouldn't understand how bassy they really sound if you've never actually listened to them and graph read a FR chart taken at 90dB where the dynEQ becomes more linear. They're plenty bassy enough, not any less than the other headphones that anon liked. And the comfort and noise cancelling is superior to any of the alternatives except for the sorny 1000xm3

>>69327477>I was just kidding.
>>69323705cleanst thine room
>>69327375Full contour style, but probably with a bit more of a boost than what is necessary to follow the equal loudness curves. It's clearly following the contour : the boost starts very very down low, and progressively tapers down until you reach 100hz-200hz. QC35 have a decent amount of bass but they don't have excessive midbass. Heavy processing of sound isn't audiophile stuff but truthfully it's enjoyable to relax with low volume music in the background and still be able to hear the bass. Music rarely is enjoyable at non-dangerous levels of decibels if you don't toy with EQ or V shaped headphones anyway.

I used to love headphones however since I've gotten my monitors, they just don't do it for me anymore. I never had the nicest headphones, some ATH-M50x, XB1000, XB500. All were ok, they sounded fine enough but these monitors just completely blow them away. It's also nice not having to wear headphones for nice sound quality.
>>69327627>manufactured in china>uses components with piss poor build qualityi mean you can deny it's chinkshit all you want...
>>69327621>normies also falls for the jbl meme so ;3Do you even have a single real argument against the JBL besides "booh hiss"? They're not the perfection the memeing makes some believe but they're pretty good speakers still.

>>69327629you had shitty headphones, duh they're gonna sound like shit compared to speakers.>>69327633well i sold mine last summer because i was definitely not satisfied with any component in that piece of shit. the drivers are garbage, the plastic is junk, plate amp is cheap shit.no, they are not great speakers. maybe if you'd ever bought passive speakers you would get some standards.
>>69327640>you had shitty headphones, duh they're gonna sound like shit compared to speakersThe ATs were well received by audio "experts".

>>69327654i demoed the m50x once at a microcenter and oh my god it was like listening to earrape.i got no idea how they managed to make such shitty cans.
>>69327640>the plastic is junkWhen you mention utterly irrelevant shit like this I can't take anything you say in a manner other than "this guy is just trolling for attention". They're a bunch of cheap speakers. You expect what, a beautiful, reddish mahogany case handcrafted by a master of the trade? and how strong the plastic is matters for something that shouldn't ever move once placed?
>>69327621Yeah. That's why I'm glad Seasonic has started to pay attention to the SFX market.>in before he fell for the SFF meme

>>69328060I guess that why harman is boomy and lacks any detail
>>69327530Do it, I personally liked the sound of the 60e compared to the 80, and they're great bang for buck if you like the admittedly peaky mids at around 2, and 9khz.Also very easy to drive at 32 ohms, even some phones and portable audio players can do an ok job with them.Horn speakers are cool, single driver horns tied to a sub at a high frequency like 300 ish Hertz is subjectively quite nice, as you can get a bit more volume and dynamics out of the full range drivers, which they aren't typically know for at volume.Look up frugalhorn lite, it's made for the fostex FF85WK driver and delivers great results at a modest price if you don't mind some DIY, you can also buy premade flat packs for building the cabinets and have all the damping materials and wiring supplied.As for the sub(s), I'd probably cop out and buy a small velodyne or REL personally.Have fun anon!

>>69328587>that being said though the only andrew jones i owned were garbage, despite reviews, so we both kind of the stand on the same glass floor.Look bro, I'm not fanboying over JBL (although other people may be). I just think the LSR305 are genuinely good for the price. "for the price" is the kicker. They don't "punch over their price" or whatever other bullshit people love to tell themselves about cheaper equipment. The fact is, a truly great pair of speaker is not going to cost you between $200 or $300 when buying brand new. They will all have compromises in some way, and the more you spend the less compromises you deal with. With that said, I'm fond of active speakers in general but I'm fond of convenience and not having to deal with much bullshit.
>>69328611can you say the exact name? amazon.de shows 170 euro and amazon uk version 180 euro for me and my shops here sell same price.
>>69324367Stax brown reporting in. 404s
>>69328658>>69324250>not a glencairntrue plebs
>>69328659idk after going through a few chinkshit monitors as well as lsr305 (since you obviously compare them differently) and they all gave me a sour taste in my mouth because of pure component selection.I never spend over 300 on speakers, so I'm used to what that pricepoint gives you.Surprisingly, I found passive speakers much better just on quality of components. When I got elac debut 2s, every single part on it was made to a higher standard than the JBLs, mostly because they require much fewer parts. A crossover board, jacks on the back, a cabinet, driver, and tweeter. All of these were just better build. The finish was better on the cabinet, the driver had a more sturdy cone, the rubber was higher quality than jbl's cheap rubber.So many things were just objectively better about buying passive speakers that I wondered how jbl got off selling theirs for 300 dollars except you're paying for the plate amp, something that should not be in consideration unless you're a professional and you absolutely have to have neutral monitors for mixing and engineering, as I don't know many passive monitors that go for a dead neutral sound.When I used the lsr305s, they were great. Sounded good, everything was good. But for 300 dollars, I may be privileged because I can go around to goodwills and pick up old hifi gear on the cheap, but there's certainly better options on amazon, just whenever I post links you just say the jbls are better for no fuckin reason and ask for me to spoonfeed you meaningless measurements that have nothing to do with the sound.

>>69328966idk i dont own staxmight grab 2140s when ive saved up enough
>>69328902Actually, as an euro, I just didn't even pay attention to the picture. I saw what looked like some random soda stuff that might only be sold in the United States of Fatso and skipped reading its labels. That it's actually sparkling water.. sold in aluminum cans. I can't even? Are you going to sell tap water bottled in Gold cast bottles next?
>>69328966the difference between lambdas are like the difference between hd580 variants (i.e. hd600, hd6xx, hd660S)
>>69329020Are you saying all lambdas are shit and we should buy omega then
>>69329026no, I stated that the variability between lambdas is about as large as the variance of hd580 variants, a few decibels here and there. slight tonality differences. even the cheapest and oldest lambda destroys midfi headphonesdoes that answer your question, anon?
>>69329005Anythings possible here, That is what makes it great right?
>>69329026He meant that there are only little differences between the models in terms of sound. Nuance's. The build quality of the l700 is above the rather cheap and flimsy l300. Never had the l500 in my hand so can't talk about that. The l300 was a no-go for me though, after I got to hold them in my hands I decided to save up for the l700.
>>69329087You mean l300 is like the hd 600 and the hd 660s is like the l700 in terms of value? Will i not a big difference in sound with the l300?
>>69328466The anons who recommend DT 880 might be taking piss because they are not the warm headphones that you are looking for.
Been using an ath-m50x for a few years. I appreciate the neutral sound but I feel like I have to turn up the volume to uncomfortable levels to be able to fully distinguish all the detail in the music. Do more expensive headphones not have this problem?
>>69329218the L300/500 is ported. you need to seal mod the L300 first
>>69329254Then that's it?
>>69329247nah get a dt880 or sumn
>>69329261just get stax 2140 on buyeepre-sealed ^.^
>>69329314Only when you post feet.

>>69329386Would they be equivalent in sound to l700 or what?
>>69329414no idea. they're definitely what i would get though.anyone who told me they got l700 says it was a waste of money but they wanted them anyways.
>>69329386SHOW ME THOSE CUTE SWEATY GIRL FEET
Imagine buying DT 1990 which have top notch build quality and sound while keeping a very fair price.
>>69329450Damn it anon. How do i know if its good if no reviews are ever posted.
>>69329484>fretting over a $400 lambda setup:|
opinions on the hd650?
>>69329484well stax are mostly a meme. if you want reviews, some people tell me they're expensive saran wrap, others tell me they're the second birth of christ.generally i hear they're basically expensive hd600, and you should go for dt1990 if you want to up your budget past those.
>>69329501Only $200 on massdrop right now so pretty good
>>69329500>>69329504But what if they sound bad. I can't return them :(
>>69329501Too dark, and I usually tend to like that. Unless you like tweaking stuff that isn't actually good out of the box, don't get it. Nothing wrong with the driver itself though, so consider another model that's tuned differently.
>>69329504this post is incredibly misleading and disinfo. just quote the reviews you are referring to that don't agree with them being the best instead of relying on word of mouth. if you don't want to do that then just stop posting or audition them yourself.>>69329540feel free to attempt to find a review of a stax lambda that is negative when it comes to sound. the only ones you will find are people complaining about lack of impact (usually unsealed L300 impressions or comparisons to ZMF which have big midbass boosts which is emulated via EQ)
>>69329570Well HD 600 are usually regarded as good but i hated them.
>>69329579lambdas are compared to the hd600 not because of the sound but because of the price comparison to the rest of the headphones in their bracket.
Lol Amazon doesn't sell them on Germany anymore. Guess they really are getting discontinued, kinda sad really. If you live in the US you can get the hd6xx which are the 650 but in black. I prefer the 58x which happens to be cheaper too, it has more bass but it isn't as veiled as the 6xx/650. They are on Massdrop.
Imagine buying the outdated and ovepriced HD600 which feature 20 years old driver, mediocre build quality, abysmal comfort and really muddy sound.
>>69329579Why did you hate them?
>>69329606Too bad there's nothing better
>>69329598>>69329617Hd 600 had too narrow sound stage, not enough bass. Although I don't mind treble too much.
>>69329606Bruh please we actually want to discuss the senns, don't interrupt us with your shitposting. Do that with the usual suspects.
>>69329649hd600 has a narrow soundstage compared to everything so that's nothing new. stax has a larger soundstage than say, an akg, but not as much as an hd800. bass can always be boosted to preference as long as you have a front chamber seal. the hd600 has a leaky one and is not good for bass boosting
What is the general consensus on DT 1990? I haven't been in these threads since the last time I purchased headphones and I'm thinking about upgrading to those from DT 880.
>>69329680Like an akg sound stage? Well maybe they will be better. Do you recommend the same ones above?
Are the K712 really that unreliable? Someone posted about it in the last thread and now I need some more input, as I was actually planning on buying them.
>>69329739any lambda is good, some of the older models may or may not have a 13khz peak that makes them too ethereal sounding. i'm unsure. my friend upgraded to stax from an akg and was lamenting that he was not used to the soundstage when gaming and it was distracting. that being said he had a modern lambda can't say with confidence when it comes to the older ones
>>69329728Not really that much of an upgrade from what I've heard. there are many that say that they prefer the dt880 which surprised me. Look on YouTube and other comment sections and try to demo them in a shop if you can.
>>69329728King of mid-fi pretty much, don't listen to shitposters.
>>69329795Yeah I have been trying to find every single bit of information on those cans for the past half week. Demoing them isn't an option unfortunately.
>>69329855Take this as a word from experience: Can’t demo don’t buy. Or find a way to demo it if you really really want it badly.
>>69329855Amazon usually has a pro customer return policy. Try to order the 1990 and demo them like that and if you don't like them, just send them back. It worked for me.
>>69329955here's a simple concept: buy used sell used
>>69329975>demo it at a shop>buy it used if you like itNot hard.
>>69329984low iq. what happens when a store doesn't have a headphone you want to try?
>>69330008Find another store, idiot. Don’t tell me you live in a third world shithole with only 1 headphone store in the whole area or something. You should be worrying about things other than headphones if that’s your situation.
I went through a bunch of midfi crap like HD600/650/700, DT880/990, T90, K712, X2, Sundara and I'm sticking with DT 1990. This is my own preference though so take it with a grain of salt.
>>69330038I live in the silicon valley and most audio stores here only stock audezes. oops, looks like your argument just vanished into thin air.
>>69330067So a third world shithole then.

>>69330121your iq is disgustingly low. everyone knows california may be shit but the bay area is one of the most expensive places to live with the highest incomes and you want to divide the conversation to try to insinuate that I'm poor or that everyone has access to hifi headphones. regardless of all that, what does living in a poor area have to do with anything? if you don't have physical access to a headphone then just buy used. sell it for the same price you paid for. just shut up and say "yeah, that's a smart strategy" instead of calling people poor because your argument is shit.
>>69330158Having a high living cost doesn’t magically make a place not a third world shithole. Just admit you live in the literal butt of the US (already not a fantastic country) and move on. >yeah, that's a smart strategyIt’s not and you’re not getting the validation you’re looking for from here. Try reddit instead, your fellow commiefornians will thank you.
>>69329775which stax did he get? And which akg did he have?
>>69330055Are you fully pleased with the DT 1990 or do you think it could be better? I feel like I'm going through the same route and I feel like anything isn't good enough.
>>69330181I'm not here to compete with you in the special ed mental gymnastics. if you want to handicap yourself by not buying and selling then you're free to do so. if you want to tell people to get up and move countries or cities/states just to try a headphone then you are a very special person with a very special way of understanding how the world works. >Just admit you live in the literal butt of the US (already not a fantastic country) and move onI already did
>>69330192Only thing I would complain about is that the cups are a little bit shallow, but it doesn't really annoy me. Perhaps you can get thicker pads if that's the issue. It might take some time to get used to them but they're comfy afterwards and sit tightly. The build quality is absolutely amazing and shits even on most hi-fi models.It's unlikely that you will find anything better until stepping into the 1k+ range territory unless you want closed backs.

>>69330253do you even understand the difference between a front chamber leak vs rear chamber leak?
>>69330252why do you even post if your advice is only applicable to yourself? the majority of people don't have access to hifi stores with a wide selection of headphones.
>>69330055Well I borrowed a friend's pair and they sounded like overly sibilant shit. I guess this is my preference as well.
>>69330291>why do you even post if your advice is only applicable to yourself?It’s not. Most people have access to at least one decent hifi store because they don’t live in commiefornia. Even when I actually lived in third world toilets myself I was able to locate hifi stores fairly easily. Speaks a lot about California honestly when I was able to find an incredible selection of headphones in a shitheap like Taiwan.
>>69330291>>69330252oh also you said not to buy headphones that you can't demo yet you post here with advice on which headphones to buy. why should anyone to your experiences of the hd800 vs L700? they are meaningless, everyone should be going to their local store after all and not buy something they can't listen to themselves.
>>69330261Analytical, there isn't a big difference though and you're basically getting a free pair of high quality replacement pads, you can cut holes in the balanced ones.
>>69330322They're not sibilant at all, the fuck was the source and what were you listening to?
>>69330327To point people towards what headphones they should try of course. I would never tell anyone to buy a half grand headphone without trying, nevermind a kilobuck.
>>69330326the majority of australians do not have access for example, they have to drive 8 hours one way just to get to one. you are essentially telling an entire country of people to fuck off because you don't want to admit that your logic is flawed

>>69330328It's the A pads that have less holes. More holes = more bass. It's the same principle as the bass ports you close and open on the Custom Studio, but done on the back of earpads with a less dramatic impact on the acoustics compared to cups. I'd totally cut more holes on the A pads because BASS-FOR-LIFE
>>69330365>low quality shrill weeb garbage sounds sibilant on analytical headphonesgee
>>69330412You can arrive to a conclusion in 2 days or 2 hours. Always nicer to have the latter>admit that you are wrong.I’m really not. Stop using insistence to cope for your shitty living situation.
>>69330434>DT1990>analyticalNo you fucking retard, they're bright flawed trash. Most of the music I listen to is instrumental anyway. On vocal tracks it's even more unbearable. Keep on justifying your purchase.
>>69330474Keep on being a butthurt dweeb angry at what people enjoy.
>>69330443you are wrong, admit it. your advice is not useful if you continue to be stubborn and tell everyone that is not in your special circumstance to fuck off. stax is only able to be auditioned in a few countries/states and in a few select locations.
>>69330474>highly accurate and analytical studio headphones (as advertised) aren't like that because I say so!ok harmantardon
>>69330501Oh it’s you again. This is getting tiring. >you are wrong, admit it.Not really no. >you continue to be stubbornRight back at you...?You also don’t realize that your special little method doesn’t account for people living outside of the United Shithole of Amerimutts but ok. >stax is only able to be auditioned in a few countries/states and in a few select locations.Take a weekend trip there or go to a local meetup. Hardly inconveniences.

>>69330531>Oh it’s you again. This is getting tiring.it is tiring, I'm giving you chances to be a reasonable person with reasonable advice but you aren't taking them for whatever reason.>You also don’t realize that your special little method doesn’t account for people living outside of the United Shithole of Amerimutts but ok. the majority of countries have a used market. not sure how that matters though, use whatever method. local meetups, buying/selling, hifi stores. they all have zero cost associated with them. all of them should be employed. i'm not stubborn enough to disregard one of them because I can't refuse to admit that maybe there just might be a hole in my logic.>Take a weekend trip there or go to a local meetup. Hardly inconveniences.one or two locations in europe. one in southern california. japan, singapore, one or two shops in china. what do you have to say to all the people not living in these locations that want to audition stax?
>>69330614>I'm giving you chances to be a reasonable person with reasonable advice but you aren't taking them for whatever reason.Perhaps it’s because your idea of reasonable person is “conforming to my opinions with no room for dissent”. At the very least it’s starting to look exactly like it to me. >the majority of countries have a used market. not sure how that matters though, use whatever method.Something about shipping costs and the existence of a large enough hifi scene to find the specific headphone you want. >all of them should be employed.And I consider all of them to be some form of demoing? Don’t tell me you’re fucking sperging out because I mentioned a different form of try before you buy and didn’t specifically include your version. >what do you have to say to all the people not living in these locations that want to audition stax?I did say local meetups.
For me, it's the HD600.
>>69330669>Something about shipping costssure, I'll admit it's typically not zero cost. I've lost $ over the years due to shipping. if you're smart you can mitigate/avoid and even turn a profit.>Don’t tell me you’re fucking sperging out because I mentioned a different form of try before you buy and didn’t specifically include your version.no, you called me an idiot when I told you not everyone have has access to hifi stores and then proceeded to call me a third worlder because you couldn't envision a scenario where someone could possibly live in a rich area without access to niche headphones that are superior but not popular among the upper class because they don't market to foreignersyour turn to admit you were wrong.
>>69330766>I've lost $ over the years due to shipping. if you're smart you can mitigate/avoid and even turn a profit.And why exactly would anyone do that aside from in a last resort scenario? Either way this process in any country is very long term and time consuming if you want to resell the headphone. If I did this with IEMs I would have bought and resold probably 20, 30 IEMs now, most of them kilobuck range. Assuming I don't feel like dropping $20-$30k on IEMs all in one go and want to do things the money efficient way and buy them one at a time that's what, one IEM once every, say, 2 or 3 weeks? Depending on how long it takes for you to find a seller, buy it, ship, demo it, realize you don't like it, find a buyer, and then receive payment. Or I could literally shoot down one IEM a minute at my local headphone store AND tell the shopkeeper what I like and don't like and get recommendations. Which is what I did. >you called me an idiot when I told you not everyone have has access to hifi storesI called you an idiot when you acted like only one hifi store existed in each city in every part of the world. >proceeded to call me a third worlder because you couldn't envision a scenario where someone could possibly live in a rich area without access to niche headphones that are superior but not popular among the upper class because they don't market to foreignersSo stax are the only headphones in the world that anyone should try? Come on now. I like my L700 as much as anyone else but this is beyond stupid. I can be overly insulting when typing but I'd hardly consider myself wrong in telling people to demo their shit instead of buying blind. Just offensive in presentation.
