which bad boys do you use?
pic related, they're my bad boys
I barely use them and am mostly content listening to my laptop speakers, phone speakers and $20 in ears
Shure se535s are my bad boys
My slightly better boys are my AKG K-66, which I only use for outdoors/field recording and for sharing, cuz they're cheep and I don't mind if they get broke.
Pic related. Recently copped the ANC7b's. Not sure how I feel about the soundstage and they look really big and goofy, but I got them for like 100 bucks less than retail and I need noise cancellation so whatever.
I use it to boost the bass a little and they work decently enough for me. I'm not sure how loud you like your music but these can only bring volume up by like 20-25% before everything just starts sounding overdriven and awful. It's more than enough for me. I honestly don't even use it like 75% of the time, just for specific genres.
Had these for a few years now, only problem with them is that the foam rubber at the top has sunken in so the headset now cuts into my head. Gets very uncomfortable after a while.
sound quality is average and they're uncomfortable but they never break
I only have iPod earbuds. Last week the main speaker on the left one broke so I only have one working earphone. Which earphones do you guys recommend? What specs do you look for in earphones?
have heard these are pound for pound the best value and that a lot of studios use them. wonder if sony's considered offering them in different colors for us idiots who find black boring.
Sennheiser HD 600s.
I've owned them for a couple years. Loving it! Totally worth the price of admission.
here are my meme50x's I've had them for a little over a month and a week for my first headphones for 130$
they are kind of uncomfortable and clampy but I guess I would keep them for portable shit
what should I get for home
My little portable Fiio amp has been acting up lately. Like the audio will end up only coming out of one side of my headphones. Amp is fully charged and nothing appears to be caught in the jack. Had any problems with yours?
I haven't brought mine outside of the house at all and I don't use it a whole lot so it's lasted me a year so far. No problems to report. The E6 is only 30 bucks so I wouldn't be surprised if it just poops out after a while. How long have you had it?
I've had it for a couple years so that could be it. Not a big deal because it's relatively cheap, but I'm kinda bummed out because there's a noticeable difference in the audio when I'm not using it.
Yeah, I guess just grab a new one then. A 30 dollar portable amp lasting that long isn't too bad though, imo. Heck, maybe now's the time to invest more money in a better one. The sky's the limit.
