Should I or shouldn't I buy... (clothing item)? - Page 2182
Friends don't let friends buy Bose. They are great at marketing, not so good at making decent audio gear.
kg, just make sure whatever you buy is sensitive enough to be powered by whatever you're using to drive them. Some high end phones need a decent headphone amp to sound good and play loud enough (as was mentioned).
If you get into it, check out gear from Schiit Audio, made in the USA, decent price/value... good Schiit for sure.
KG, I really like the V-Moda M100s. I produce music for a living and have TONS of cans, but those are my favorite for day-to-day listening + comfort. I followed their development really closely and got one of the first pairs when they came out. For $300, you really can't beat em, in my personal opinion.
The ATH-M50s are good, but they tend to cause ear fatigue after long listens, and the pads can become uncomfortable after a while. Plus they are really large to wear around (dunno if that's what you're asking for, but yeah).
I use the M50s to monitor sometimes, and the sound is great, but for my everyday use, I really dig the M100s.
What's everyone's thoughts on those Kent Want sneakers
I have a good pair of leather sneakers (MMM gats) and a pair of dirty gats (non mmm) that are close to RIP. I just need something in between for summer.
