I forget if we have a thread about headphones.
Anyway, I just bought a new pair of headphones because my Bose around-ear headphones crapped out for the third time and I'm sick of them. So I started doing research. Holy shit did I fall down a rabbit hole. I honestly spent about 6 hours on Monday researching headphones, learning about brands, soundscapes, "warm mids," "bright treble," driver sizes, frequency rates, burning-in, and that's just the tip of the iceberg. I knew there was a headphone culture, but I had never jumped in head first. Fucking overwhelming.
Anyway, with my cash-back from my credit card, I ended up buying these:
Mostly because they're super durable and got fairly good reviews. Some people say they're too bassy, and I noticed that a bit yesterday when I got them, but people also say that ends up evening out over time. They're pretty much incredible - I wish I could wear them at work.
Does anyone, like, know a shitload about headphones around here?
