Welcome to the world of wireless headphones for working out and yard stuff. We've been expecting you for the past 2 years. :) lol

Yeah, I got those like last November after searching for decent ones for quite a while....

Got a pair of Zagg buds for 10 bucks the other day, haven't had a chance to try them out. Anyone use them before?

but they've got gold contacts and they cost a lot which means they're great

Yeah, I'd heard that high cost cables weren't any better than regular ones...

...and beans went and pissed Kurb off and got banned so he couldn't tell me.

I buy 4 dollar HDMI cables from BigLots.

means high price, shiny/fancy exteriors and mediocre quality (at best.)

monster cable pioneered the practice of charging insane prices for cabling during the car stereo hay-day. people thought because they were so expensive they had to be awesome, then couldn't admit to themselves that they'd been duped... so here we are... similar business plan to bose, except bose actually has a history of designing speakers.

the headphones are built to put out bass. most people think that equates to quality because they're accustomed to total crap sets that project mid-range almost exclusively. If you compare them to a pair of free iphone earbuds they sound great... if you compare them to a $90 pair of sonys they sound like hot garbage.

you wanna drop $300 on a good set of cans? get some beyer-dynamics.

edit: BEAT to it...

I have these sweet 10 dollar earbuds from Walmart. They are actually pretty damn awesome.

i got suckered in to wiring up my entire guitar rig/pedal board with probably $200 worth of monster cables when i was 16 or 17. they felt nice and heavy and had shiny connectors but still shitted out in the same amount of time as the unbranded crap on the bottom shelf at the music store. when i unscrewed the jacks, there was also heatshrink around the solder lugs and wiring so that i had to mangle it up with a razor blade to fix the broken connection. great job.
