Gentlemen. I am one happy camper. I am enjoying the best sound I have ever had the pleasure to enjoy.And here I am with just regular earphones. I've never asked for more than that for earphones/headphones. How much am I missing out on?
So much, man. When I plugged these babies into my iPod at the Sony store I instantly had precum in my jeans. The only draw back, like Pen0s said, is that you look like a huge tool wearing them in public. Make no mistake, I will never wear these outside the walls of my house. Or if I plan on recording something in the future.

What is your guy's opinion on Hot Topic shirts?The store sucks, and it's really hard to find good shirts there. I've only ever gotten two shirts there: Operation Ivy and Dethklok. I don't plan on getting any more.
The shirts have what I call "PG Gore". Its half assed gore thats cleaned up and made cartoony so that kids can be a Metal fan and still appease mother and father.
It's not about the shop. It's about the band on the shirt. Hot Topic have bad quality shirts with bad quality bands on them (most of the time), so uh. I'm pretty sure everyone thinks Hot Topic is fail.
Eh. I think them carrying shitty bands is up for debate. I love Horse the Band, and I saw they had a t-shirt that wasn't Cutsman or something bland and boring. Which says something about their tour shirts if Hot Topic carries a better shirt.
I'm wearing a Carcass Australian tour shirt. Because it is a tour shirt, and was sold at one of their concerts, it is of high quality and very awesome.
Not one person has ever come up to me and said, awesome shirt. ITS A FUCKING CARCASS SHIRT, WTF. Lack of metalheads make me a sad panda.
And to be completely honest, I know I'm going to look like a faggot here, I hate the quality that most band shirts are. 90% of metal bands carry those generic cheap "Heavy Cotton" shirts that shrink twice their size in the life of having them. They just don't look good, either. They have sleeves that pop up on the sides and point upwards. It makes it look like even the best fit of a band shirt is too small or large, or just looks proportionally wrong.
IMHO, Hot Topic has better quality shirts, with better fabric. However, with that being said, it is what it is: a place for people to meet and be trendy faggots and listen to popular bands all day long. But honestly, if it was a good band shirt, and the band offered me their Heavy Cotton shirt over Hot Topic's, I wouldn't take it.
