Here is the exact model and color I purchased:http://www.bestbuy.com/site/sennheiser-momentum-on-ear-headphones-black/1794157.p?id=1219064877547&skuId=1794157On sale for $146.99.At the compared prices....Sen's made in Germany all the R&D and quality that goes into them virtually no marketing compared to Beat's and the others.Where are they made? I think I'll tell my Son to sell his beats, buy his own pair of Sen's and put the leftover money in his savings account.You got...
My 19 year old is a huge N.B.A. fan. A while back he came home with a pair of Beat's headphones. He asked me what I thought of them. First of all they were all plastic. They felt like you were wearing coffee mugs. The sound was horrible. No mid-range or high-end. They sounded like you were listening through Dixie cups. I asked him what he paid for them. I was floored....$300.00. Now he works for his money and as long as he saves I have no problem with him treating himself...
Here is a picture of the thread failure I mentioned yesterday. Any shoe repair shop will tell you that they see this occur far more often then gem failure:
I once had a conversation with the owner of a internationally very well known company. During our discussion it came out that they were changing their business plan. When I questioned it he told me "I'd rather sell to the asses than the masses" When I heard that I lost all respect for him. The Guy can buy a small country. My brother owns a prosthetic and orthopedic company. One He started Himself. He is very well respected internationally in the trade. A few years ago he...
Very weird to say the least. I never,ever implied that you had a vested interest in anything. You Sir seem to enjoy using that thought like wielding a baseball bat as an influence. You do the same stuff over and over again.My offer stands.....Dinner as gentleman? Happily on my dime.
Sorry if you interpreted my comments as being defensive. I can assure that is not the way I intended. In fact, since you keep bringing it up I think you are the one sensitive over the fact that I voluntarily admitted that I don't do the work. Be that as it may.....I accept your comments about my integrity. But to clarify you made a comment about me having a "vested interest" in sole guards. That comment is only an example of others such that are untrue and undermining to...
I agree making and repair are different.When you make a statement representing that I am "a little touchy" about not doing the work you are deliberately misleading this forum. I have stated in the past and I will repeat it in case you forgot. I am proud of the fact that I do not do the work, I supervise it. I learned from my Grandfather many decades ago (and I trusted and respected his opinions and advice) more than any man I have ever met inside or out of the shoe...
Your comment in the first sentence is a riot. I hear ya on that one!!!As long as we are taking a stroll down memory lane. Way back when after several dust-ups you and I had together I offered to get together with you and the Mrs. for dinner if you ever planned a trip to the city. I did this through PM'S. Do you recall? You politely declined. Well I'll say it publicly....the offer stands and, it's on me.Yes like you I question. If I disagree I'll make it known and why. By...
DW I wouldn't say that I'm "not awfully fond of you". I don't feel that way at all. We differ with many of our opinions. You have your opinions based on your experience and knowledge and mine are based on the same criteria. We have different experiences based on decades in our fields. It's just that when I'm meet with rude remarks and someone trying to shove something down my throat I give it right back to them. No matter who they are. And when it gets to a point where I'm...
Well I'm happy to see that things got sorted out regarding recent posts in this thread. When it comes down to "making money" as the objective.... As a small player, I subscribe to a very simple theory...Take care of the customer, the rest will take care of itself. However, I do know of companies that actually invest in schools and pay the freight training apprentices in order to turn out a consistent high-grade product. They even pay for lunches for their students. That's...
