Unusual headphone choices
I've gone through many headphones through my adult life. Started with those wire and foam headphones you get free with a your Walkman. Then I moved up to the Koss over the ear headphones, then I stopped for a while. Anyway I bought a pair of Beats like 2 years ago. They were some nice phones, and I'll keep it short. One of the main reasons why they were nice is I didn't have to buy a amp with an equalizer to get the sound I wanted in the phones. I think most people miss this point in reviews on headphones. Anyway those broke because that's what things do around me lately and i was in the market for some new phones.
Did my usual web-seach and happen upon these Phillips Uptown
I was like wow, and started to save up some money to see what they were like.
Then I went to work and found I couldn't deal with these cheap ear buds any longer
These are by marc ecko the sound was good the fit was good. The metal casing on the other hand kept coming apart. I could fix them I just didn't feel like it at the time. so I walked into my best buy looking to find a nice over the ear set. I listen to the popular sets, Sennheiser, bose, beats, sckull candy and alike and I just felt they were lacking, in look, or in how they sounded(BTW I don't care for a balance sound, because like I mention above I don't want to have to equalize and amp my portable headphones just for them to sound they way I want it to). Anyway then I happened upon these.
these are called Aiaiai Studio headphones.
These sounded great but they were $300 that's a no go. These phones were in the Music section of bestbuy, where they sell guitars and equipment, so they may not be at your local best buy. Anyway, I saw the ones below, and was like hmm.
Kinda like the retro look, and the sales person let me listen to them in the store. The sounded great. So I bought them.
Looking around the net I couldn't find a single decent review for all the headphones I listed above, I wonder if anyone else has some non traditional they would like to discuss.
Btw I bought the Phillps too, and they are amazing, I'm having a hard time choosing which to wear. These Phillps though are hands down the most comfortable headphones i've ever worn in my life. I feel like I have a pair of Jordan's on my ears.
