£870 for heardphones? :shock:

For that kind of money those things would need to literally strawberry float me in the ears for it to be worthwhile!

I love a good set of headphones as much as the next person but diminishing returns kick in quite a way before you get to that kind of money in my view. On the other hand if people want and can afford very expensive headphones and truly appreciate the difference that they bring then who am I to question it!

Yeah, it seems a bit odd to me as well. I mean, for studio quality overears sure, but I can't imagine what type of sound ear-plug types could make that'd make them worth that much.

But, horses for courses.

And here I was quite satisfied with my free pair from T3 magazine (SoundMagic E11c, which retail for around £45 I believe).

But then I was chuffed with my £10 Sony ones prior to that as well. :slol:

My £80 Bose sports in-ears are more than OK. I also have a pair of PSB M4U's for gaming too (which were about £300).

I went from a pair of SoundMagic in-ear phones which were about £30, to a pair of wireless over-ear Marshall bluetooth headphones that cost about £170. Can't say I've noticed much difference in audio quality, but they're more comfortable and don't make my ears feel waxy. Plus they look pretty cool, I even get compliments about them, which is mightily embarrassing :slol: :oops:

I do love the design of Beats more than any other, but the sound quality doesn’t deliver as it should considering the price.

My in-ear BeatsX are bloody great. It's a shame the battery doesn't last longer but that's understandable given that they're tiny.

Literally only bought my Beats because they had Mickey Mouse on them. I am part of the problem.

Beats are, predictably, a case of style of substance. Yet the masses lap them up.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

Is it time for the bi-annual debate into the cost of Denny's Aural speakers of choice already?

This year is flying past.

Whenever people say this I wonder if they've actually used any of the newer products within the past few years. BeatsX are among the best wireless earbuds for their price and the Solo Wireless 3s are brilliant, great sound quality (better than the Bose QC35 and wired AKGs I have) and the battery life is something crazy like 30-40 hours. Both have Apple's W1 chip so they're a pice of piss to pair with an Apple device and it automatically pairs with any other device using the same iCloud account, compared to the fancying about you have to do with normal bluetooth pairing.

Because in today’s world style matters more than substance

I want them but I don't want them, if that makes sense.

I was tempted to get them but went for the Bose instead due to the better noise cancelling.

All you whippersnappers with your fancy bluetooth nonsense. What even is a pair of headphones if you can't put it away only to come back moments later and find the wires inextricably tangled together?

I had an amazing set of Sony bluetooth headphones back in the day - they weren't the tiny in-ear ones that everyone seems to be rocking today but they also weren't full on overear "cans" either. They looked a bit clunky but the sound was excellent and the bluetooth connection was rock solid.

Sadly I left them out in the garden a couple of years back without realising it and they got rained on. So long sweet Sony headphones! :cry:

I can't really wear headphones due to the position of my wheelchair headrest (it'd press them into the side of my head) and in-ear ones never seem to stay in properly.
