Try this five-step approuch:
Step 1. stop listening to hip-hop. Step 2. stop waisting money audio equipment until you've accomplished step 1. Step 3. start saving now for the hearing aids you're going need a little later on in life (hearing loss is permanent and good hearing aids cost many times what a good pair of Audiophile headphones cost. Step 4. buy some Miles Davis, and Charles Mingus albums.

Correction:
Step 1. Listen to a wide variety of music from all sorts of genres, because pretty much every genre is full of absolutely wonderful music if you are willing to take the time to find. it.
Step 2. Don't write off a major genre just because you personally don't find the idea of it compelling.
Step 3. Most definitely don't let other people dictate what music you enjoy.

You seem to be struggling with a more fundamental issue: the definition of Music.
Many young people today assume that since hip-hop is often sold as music, it must actually be music. This is a common misconception. Likewise, at one time, people believed human sacrifice was akin to their religious beliefs, and more recently (and more tragically, I might add), people actually believed Disco was a form of music). Today of course, we know neither is the case (both human sacrifice and Disco have been outlawed in civilized society for many years).
There are many examples of popularly mistaken beliefs in the world today; some people confuse Budweiser with beer for instance. Still others believe inhaling and exhaling billowy clouds of perfumed vapors will make them appear more attractive to members of the opposite sex. And inexplicably, a small minority of people in this country actually believe Donald Trump has a clue.
Yes, it can be a confusing world at times--especially for millennials hell-bent on assimilation at any cost. My advice to you: avoid religions that spatter blood on your clothing, never appear in a photograph with a can of Buddweiser, and by all means, never listen to hip-hop (or disco)--in studies, both have lead to diminished mental capacities--in lemmings.

I see hip-hop has done wonders for your typing skills--you must be lampin’ Big Willie-style? I kin tell you mos def-ny ‘bout it!
On the other hand, If by old music, you mean anything recorded prior to last Thursday? Maybe some, but here's a tip for you, music has no expiration date--if it's good, it's good for good! Unlike that transfer-of wealth-with-a-beat you're probably listening to right now. Pay on my brother, pay on!

why did you even come on this post? just to hate on what I like? you must be really insecure if you think you're better than me just because you like something thats different. fuck off bro Im done responding and giving you the only human interaction you'll have all day. youre either a troll that craves attention or youre an unlikeable fat fuck that hates on what other people like so you can feel better about yourself.

OH! Out comes the "hater" schtick; you're really go'n for the big guns now!
Don't be so defensive; learn to stickup for yourself when you're sure of yourself--but not as a reflex. Yes, I'm making fun of your for your taste in music (what passes for music anyway). What of it? Hell, if you really feel that strongly about it, defend it! Tell me why it's the ONLY thing you said you listen too. Maybe you've got a good reason? Maybe you made an informed choice between various other forms of music you'd listened to in the past, and decided you prefer hip hop because (fill in the blank).
You know, you could say: I tried Davis and Coltrane, and even some Sidrin--and man, they just didn't speak to me!" Or you could have said: "Dylan, and Mitchel, Waits and Hammond, man I left those guys in the dust along with Watters and Wolf, when I first heard Bigge Smalls back in the back in '83!"
But you didn't. You said: "I only listen to hip hop and I like bass." You'll have to forgive me if what I read in between those was: "I only listen to that because I don't know about anything else, and that's all my friends listen to it too anyway."
That would be the same I me writing "I only listen to Country and Western because I'm White and voted for Trump" And if I would have said any of that shit, even I would be making fun of me right now! Which is to say, I feel pretty much the same way about Country and Western and hip-hop, as I do about Trump--but I'm prepared to defend myself on each of those scores. You?

And yes, here as there, a few folks who claim to enjoy my stuff, 30-ish here and 300-ish there. There in my case it's Flickr. Over there, we only sweat the details.

Clamping forces of Drop-collaborated headphones
I have a fat wide head and am sensitive to the clamping force of headphones. My question is, why are the clamping forces of Drop headphones reportedly higher than the ones from the original manufacturer? For example, according to measured tests on rtings.com, both the Sennheiser HD5xx, HD58x, and HD6xx have much higher clamping force than their respective Sennheiser original models. This also seems to ring true with the Drop x Meze 99 headphones, where Meze 99 forums are saying there's almost no clamping force but the some on the Drop forum are saying the collab version's clamping force were "quite high." Is Drop requesting that headbands be tighter on the collab versions? What's going on? Also, can anyone suggest me a comfortably wide/large headphones? I'm currently using AKG 7xx and they're super comfortable.

How to connect my laptop to DROP + THX AAA™ 789 LINEAR AMPLIFIER
I have the Focal Elex. I plug it into the mini plug audio output on my HP laptop and listen to Youtube music, and some Wav tracks saved on my computer. How do I connect the following unit into my laptop to improve my listening experience? Do I need a special cable that goes from my laptop into the DROP + THX AAA™ 789 LINEAR AMPLIFIER ?

CTH + SDAC is on the fritz. Can someone help?
So I've been using my CTH + SDAC for a couple years with no problems. However, within the last month or so, I've been running into a few issues: some hissing in the right channel (which is only really audible at 0 volume) and sometimes there are clicking sounds from the box during which the sound cuts out. It seems like it's struggling to stay fully active for some reason. I just bought a replacement 6922 tube to see if that would fix the issue. It seems to have solved the hissing, but there's still intermittent clicks that cut the audio. It's the same clicking sound that happens when the unit's LED changes from red to white and allows audio through during normal operation, but it will happen repeatedly and quickly in succession, without the LED changing, and the audio will go in and out. Has anyone had this issue or know what's going on?

DAC/AMP with 58X Jubilee and Shure MV7 XLR
I'm trying to find a really good sounding DAC/AMP to run my 58X Jubilee's and my Kanto YU2 powered speakers (preferably a button to switch between outputs) and a XLR mic input for my Shure MV7. Any recommendations? PS: I play FPS games (so want the advantage there) and listen to all sorts of music that I want to hear the depth and details of (Classical to NIN/Black Keys).

About to receive my replacement Focal Elex and worried about quality
My original Elex left driver went out 10 months in. The replacement is soon to be delivered. I'm worried that the same thing will happen to the replacement at some point. I've ordered the upcoming Drop HD-8xx hoping that it will usable for me like the Elex has been. With the Drop HD-8xx the inherent lift in the highs of the HD 800's has been partially dealt with and some lows added. I honestly don't like hyped treble when using headphones. I'm hoping that there is an open back phone that is somewhat linear like the Elex, and has a similar sonic signature. I don't want another headphone from Focal; just can't deal with this again. What non-Focal linear open back headphone easily competes with the Elex?

THX AAA 789 Amazing sound
Online reviews spoke highly, but I was suprised by the detail in the sound. I was using a Dac/amp with an msrp of 1400 so I did not expect much. I did notice an immediate clarity improvement. Music, specifically words were no longer blurred.Singers seemed to make more of an effort to enunciate words more. Even using a $100 DAC the sound was top notch. Drop hit a home run with this product.
