Even if I do not agree with you, I will always fight for you to have your say.
Hmm what abt senn HD25. I quite like it. and yes never waste ur money on bose
I had a noise cancellation senn 250...damn good isolation in planes, but in a month after i bought it, I left it in the seat pocket in the plane and never to see it again
If my ipod content is in a loseless format or a very high bitrate MP3, would having good earphones matter?
absolutely positively. the earbug that came with the iPod sucks. you are in for a surprise.
what i meant was i dont even feel like the car has 14-15 speakers.
sound is clear no doubt.but when i play pop or rock music, there's virtually NO bass at all.
SC430 old model lah.me so hip wont drive this kind of car one.
i heard the mcintosh on the legacy b4.also so so only.
the RF in mitsu, imo, utterly cannot make it.i hope i wont be flamed for saying this.
havent heard the bose system from 350z nor audi TT coupe.
You have to ask yourself what is the quality of music/mp3 is in your iPod.
You're buying just for the brand name or want to get the best for your money? If you want the best for your money, its headphones liao. Only want earphones? Shure earphones can be worn with the wires behind your back. For girls wearing it, the cables can be conceal by long hair and jacket.
In my opinon, in terms of 'looks' only:
Shure have the nicest design, not too big and sits nicely in your ear.
Westone is more rugged/industral style. More stealthy and can be hidden easily.
Ultimate ears is bulky, sticks out of your ears a lot. Like Frankinstien.
Etymotic Research is just plain ugly.
If really want Shure, try E4c, SE420 or E500/SE530 if you willing to spend more. If you want E5c, then look at Westone's UM2 as well. Both are 'brothers' but with different cables.
with regards to bitrates and such, good earphones will exploit the amount of detail and quality of sound that is encoded by lossless and say maybe a 352kbps rating.
if you have bad earphones, i believe its just a waste of memory space on your player.
btw a point here, expensive doesnt not = good
i have heard quite a bunch of stuff that really quite bad for its price!
i myself just run around with 225 and 192 somewhere around that reigon, since on the go you wouldnt be trying to listen to every nuance of each pluck of the guitar string would you?
A colleague showed me a headunit which has capabilities to import the measured acoustic data. I can't remember what brand it was.
