    lol I never get why people spend so much money on a pair of headphones

    I would much rather spend $400 on a banging sound system for the house.

    My $30 skullcandy headphones are satisfying and I got them 50% off for $15.

    I live in an apartment I can't bump music that loud or my old ass neighbor/bitchy ass other neighbors will def complain

    I'm surprised you feel that way in general, I have bose in ear headphones and I like em but I'd still like something better if I could.. doesn't sound quite full enough for me.


    I'm not materialistic at all either I just want sick head phones so I can really hear the music White Man Can't Jump style

    It really depends if you like closed or opened headphones. Or earbuds. Closed if you dont wanna hear people around you and like a more bassy sound. And opened gives a more natural listening experience but everyone around you is gonna hear what you're playing.
    And if your'e spending that much for headphones, you should buy a DAC as well to use em at their full potential.

    I got a pair of HD380's that I really like.

    ^lol

    The "closed" headphones are nice but you ahve to be careful with those because they build them according to what they think will fit comfortably on your ears

    If you are a drunkn "dumbo" monk type charachter, with XXL size ears that interfere with NASA satellites and GPS systems, then you might find some closed headphones to be uncomfortable where they sit on your ear instead of "cupping" the ear like brock does with ball sacks on weekends

    I have those. I recently bought a pair of "ifrogz audio" (headphones) from hmv about $30 cuz my skullcandy was repeatedly dropped and damaged. It's snugger than skullcandy. Good stuff though.

    Too bad I don't have the receipt. I couldn't even tell you when I bought them. Maybe early last yr or before that.

    What are some decent noise canceling headphones? Every once in a great while, when I have the noise canceling feature turned on.. I still pick up some frequency of a guy with a southern accent, that sounds like he's on a CB radio.
