What are some /fa/ earphones?
I'm currently using apple ones but the sound keeps cutting out. I want something with decent sound quality that looks good. Budget is ~$100.
I was recommended pic related by an audiophile friend but I'm not sure if they're exactly /fa/.
Also earphone/headphone general.
>I was recommended pic related by an audiophile friend
he's right, also audio-technica makes good headphones.
>but I'm not sure if they're exactly /fa/.
fuck you and the horse you rode in on.
i mean i definitely don't like m50's, but it's objectively right. AT doesn't have a flagship product even in the same league as sennheiser or audeze, and their higher-end pairs can't compete with beyerdynamic or akg imo. besides, the most recommended beginner audiophile headphone on the internet is kind of the definition of basic-bitch tier.
I have a VSonic Gr07 which I intend to make custom tips for in the future. I also need to re-shell them cause I've abused a fair lot.
I have the Sony's that came with my Xperia and they're fine as shit. Not so detailed, separated or possessor of a tight bass, but they do the trick very, very well for the price and I'd actually make custom sleeves for them as well.
>paying top dollah on big brands
kekkest of keks
I also dream of making customs myself, buying drivers and shit, but that thread on head-fi is so fucking extense.
But yea, that's pretty much it.
>audio-technica is basic bitch tier.
just because the ath-50's turned into a meme doesn't make them bad.
> besides, the most recommended beginner audiophile headphone on the internet is kind of the definition of basic-bitch tier
you're a fucking idiot.
akg 518le's are pretty sweet and they come in a fuckton of colors
thatd be my pick under $100
I have the 425s which are the same shape. They look slightly odd out of your ears, and you may get some comments, but if you're actually wearing them they look alright imo. Way more stable and better isolation than normal earbuds too, I say go for it
i'm not saying they're bad headphones, i'm saying they're bad headphones compared to the pairs i mentioned. they're the most recommended headphones on the internet because they are the cheapest pair available with any sort of quality behind them, and the average person is afraid of dropping more than ~$150 on headphones. if you're seriously trying to say that the m50's can compete with the other phones in my posts with any decent dac/amp setup running vinyl or flac you're fucking wrong.
what are you talking about lcd-2's and hd800's are beautiful headphones, and they're about as quality as you can get
I've never tried HD800 but I don't really like how LCD-2 sounds. Tried Alpha Dogs and it was so fucking nice to my ears.
HD700 is probably the comfiest pair of headphones I've tried but end up with T90 anyways.
i got some beyerdynamics for when im home
when im out and about i just use the shitty standard apple ones right now, they are alright and dont look retarded
do you own them?
i have a question, are the cables the same length?
i dont know who came up with the retarded idea to make headphones were the two cables are different length but every time im about to purchase some headphones i get spooked they might have fucked up on that front
I literally only buy Sony headphones and only spend just over a tenner
>i wasn't sure if they're exactly /fa/
they're fucking black earbuds with a black cord, they have minimal impact on any outfit, i don't see how this could be a concern unless you are extra autistic
Maybe you should just leave, and so should the rest of you who can't decide for yourself if an all black in ear pair of earbangers are /fa/ enough for the rest of the world. It's a motherfucking tool made for fucking listening music, its not a fucking fashion accessory
the sound signature is bright not the color you fucking scrub
most sony is shit but the xb500's are fucking awesome. sure they sound muddy and distorted but i'm pretty sure the bass rumble is literally the strongest ever put into a pair of headphones
>not cheap or for plebs
this image makes my ears hurt
Think sony makes some Effay looking pods.
Too be honest and Ill get shit for saying this- Get fucking beats if you just want to look like a teenager or a "Music lover" to the general publik. Otherwise get what sounds the best and dont give a shit about how effay they are.
Besides. You can barely see them.
