FlashHarry: it's sad; there's an entire generation that has never heard an uncompressed piece of music.

Holographic Shimmering Pork: Those are freaking awesome. I've been imagining repurposing a pair of high-quality hearing aids as custom earbuds. The set my ex has was bluetooth compatible, and could be tweaked via bluetooth and proprietary PC software.
poot_rootbeer: I'm honestly surprised that hipsters haven't flocked to Koss PortaPros yet: folding headphones with industrial design still the best that 1987 has to offer, but nonetheless the best-sounding audio you can buy for $40 at K-Mart.But then maybe it's not just looking ridiculous that's important, but the combination of looking ridiculous and paying way too much for the privilege.

Fubegra: meatofmystery: Beyerdynamic + USB sound card= still less than the cost of sh*t Beats cansDingdingdingdingding! We have a winner! My go-to cans are the DT 770 Pro/80, and my second-in-line are Grado SR60. The Beyers are built like tanks - while the velour earpads no longer look new, they're as comfortable as ever, after five years of heavy use.My usual listening setup involves an E-MU 0404 USB interface; wonderful sound, but it's now discontinued and no release-quality drivers are forthcoming for Windows 7 or later. Needless to say, I won't be buying anything more from Creative. A Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 is in my laptop bag (it works with Win7).A good clue that a headphone maker actually knows what it's doing is when that company also makes professional microphones. Beyerdynamic, AKG, Shure, Sony, Audio-Technica, and Sennheiser all fit this criterion.Koss and Grado don't fit this mold, but they're also good brands to consider, and I consider the Grado SR60 (or newer SR60i) to be the best deal in audio.

Artcurus: No, the frequency response on vinyl is limited to the cartridge. The RIAA curve was to correct the lower bass frequencies because it can cause the needle to jump from the groove.
Jizz Master Zero: I had to stop at, "Beats have been praised for their sound." By who? I have yet to hear anyone who knows what they're talking about call them anything other than overpriced garbage.
rocky_howard: And it's all a sham.These will blow the hell out of any of the Dre abortions, but more power to him for finding fools to get richer:(click on the image for more details)[ecx.images-amazon.com image 333x500]
TexanBoy: Every time I see someone with a pair of Beats on, I think instantly know to not take them seriously. Every time. someone around the corner is going to knock their block off for them
error 303: It seems like we've been on mp3 for years now. When can I get an mp4?
FlashHarry: TheBeastOfYuccaFlats: Yeah, because the RIAA curve required to make something reproducible on vinyl is so pure? You're fooling yourself.where did i mention vinyl?
jaylectricity: With the ability to store more data in smaller vessels, might we be able to start keeping our music in .wav format?
