What are some /fa/ earphones?
I'm currently using apple ones but the sound keeps cutting out. I want something with decent sound quality that looks good. Budget is ~$100.
I was recommended pic related by an audiophile friend but I'm not sure if they're exactly /fa/.

Also earphone/headphone general.
>>
why the fuck would you need effay earphones
literally no one is going to look at them
(your friend is right, buy those)
>>

>I was recommended pic related by an audiophile friend
he's right, also audio-technica makes good headphones.
>but I'm not sure if they're exactly /fa/.
fuck you and the horse you rode in on.
>>
>>9779093
audio-technica is basic bitch tier. beyer, senn, and audeze ftw. akg is good too i guess but most models run a little bright for me
>>
>>9778907
since this is /fa/ and not /mu/ or /g/, just get Beats
>>
>>9779229
beats are not /fa/
>>
>>9779107
>audio-technica is basic bitch tier
objectively wrong

you're just tired of the M50's meme status and being the most rec'd headphones on the internet
>>
>>9779239
i mean i definitely don't like m50's, but it's objectively right. AT doesn't have a flagship product even in the same league as sennheiser or audeze, and their higher-end pairs can't compete with beyerdynamic or akg imo. besides, the most recommended beginner audiophile headphone on the internet is kind of the definition of basic-bitch tier.
>>
I love the look and sound of my Grado labs headphones.

I have a VSonic Gr07 which I intend to make custom tips for in the future. I also need to re-shell them cause I've abused a fair lot.

I have the Sony's that came with my Xperia and they're fine as shit. Not so detailed, separated or possessor of a tight bass, but they do the trick very, very well for the price and I'd actually make custom sleeves for them as well.

>paying top dollah on big brands
kekkest of keks

I also dream of making customs myself, buying drivers and shit, but that thread on head-fi is so fucking extense.

But yea, that's pretty much it.

just because the ath-50's turned into a meme doesn't make them bad.

akg 518le's are pretty sweet and they come in a fuckton of colors
thatd be my pick under $100
>>
>>9778907
I have the 425s which are the same shape. They look slightly odd out of your ears, and you may get some comments, but if you're actually wearing them they look alright imo. Way more stable and better isolation than normal earbuds too, I say go for it
>>
>>9779357
it;s like $130 on amazon last time i checked
>>
>>9779346
i'm not saying they're bad headphones, i'm saying they're bad headphones compared to the pairs i mentioned. they're the most recommended headphones on the internet because they are the cheapest pair available with any sort of quality behind them, and the average person is afraid of dropping more than ~$150 on headphones. if you're seriously trying to say that the m50's can compete with the other phones in my posts with any decent dac/amp setup running vinyl or flac you're fucking wrong.
>>
>>9779357
>>9779405
yeah they're usually pretty cheap and comfortable as fuck. buy them you won't regret it.

Sound quality is what you can expect from a sub 100$ iem.

I suggest Beats by Dr.Dre. All the nigger rappers you losers worship wears them :^)

I've never tried HD800 but I don't really like how LCD-2 sounds. Tried Alpha Dogs and it was so fucking nice to my ears.

HD700 is probably the comfiest pair of headphones I've tried but end up with T90 anyways.
>>
>>9782045
well commercially anyway, i mean he90's are nearly impossible to get your hands on. unless that was a joke, fuck off trip.

>>9782060
think it depends on the setting. i think they're pretty nice looking at a super clean, minimal desktop/office. definitely prefer audeze tho
>>
>>9782088
Beyer's are ugly though
>>
i got some beyerdynamics for when im home

when im out and about i just use the shitty standard apple ones right now, they are alright and dont look retarded

>>9778964
do you own them?

i have a question, are the cables the same length?

i dont know who came up with the retarded idea to make headphones were the two cables are different length but every time im about to purchase some headphones i get spooked they might have fucked up on that front

>i wasn't sure if they're exactly /fa/

they're fucking black earbuds with a black cord, they have minimal impact on any outfit, i don't see how this could be a concern unless you are extra autistic
>>
>>9784294
They were like $150 tho
>>
>>9779107

Maybe you should just leave, and so should the rest of you who can't decide for yourself if an all black in ear pair of earbangers are /fa/ enough for the rest of the world. It's a motherfucking tool made for fucking listening music, its not a fucking fashion accessory
>>
The classic.

>>9786260
the sound signature is bright not the color you fucking scrub

most sony is shit but the xb500's are fucking awesome. sure they sound muddy and distorted but i'm pretty sure the bass rumble is literally the strongest ever put into a pair of headphones

Think sony makes some Effay looking pods.

Too be honest and Ill get shit for saying this- Get fucking beats if you just want to look like a teenager or a "Music lover" to the general publik. Otherwise get what sounds the best and dont give a shit about how effay they are.

Besides. You can barely see them.
>>
>>9786991
professional looking headphones looks much more effay though, beats look kinda ugly sometimes
but yeah i get what you are saying
>>
>>9786941
those are meme tier and they dont look nice
>>
>>9786941
>>9787024
also they are uncomfortable af

Sennheiser hd598 are sexy and deliver good quality for the price.

>>9786941
Why buy the M50x when you can get the M40x for much less and actually have a nice looking pair of headphones and less KFCbass?
