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?

No obla "Meme" but I did think it was quite humorous (tell you the truth, I crack myself up sometimes) but I have to tell you, it's not my obligation to keep you entertained, and you're welcome to a money back guarantee if you're not 100% satisfied--just return the unused portion for a full refund!
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. You can find a link to my other stuff where I posted it, many months ago--on my, wide opened, nothing locked and nothing to hide, bio page. Be there, or be square!

Headphones for Mixing Music
Hey All, I'm a composer, and need a pair of headphones for writing and mixing. I have a pair of Genelec 1031A I'll also be referencing, but the bulk of my time will be on headphones and would like them to be as neutral as possible with good imaging. Budget is roughly $500-$600. Any recommendations? I've spent countless hours reading articles, threads, watching youtube reviews, and keep coming out with different answers. The four I see mentioned alot are: Sennheiser HD 6 series (600, 650, 6xx, 660s, feels like everyone has a different favorite) Beyerdynamic DT 1990 PRO (although some say high end is too harsh?) HiFiMan Sundara (sounds like QC issues though, and it seems they aren't a reputable brand) Audeze LCD-1 (just don't see this get praised as much as the others) Any advice you can give is appreciated. I feel like I'm making no progress narrowing it down.

Koss GMR 54X-ISO Headband Issue
Hello, I have been looking for a set of headphones that work well with music and also gaming for around $100. I found the Koss GMR 54X and it seems to be a great balance of something I could use while at work but also use to play games at night and they are a good price. However upon reading reviews, there was a fair amount of purchasers who had issues with the top of the headband cracking. Does anyone own or know how common this issue is? I would hate to buy a pair if it is likely that they will crack. Thanks for replies in advance.

An incredible challenge posted by Audeze official - will Dan, Sennheiser and Focal step up?
This is real. This isn't a hoax. Attached is a screenshot from the Audeze LCDi4's Amazon page. Transcribed below: Buyer Question: How much do these headphones cost to manufacture? I'm curious what the markup is Audeze's Response: No problem - just ask Sennheiser, Focal, HiFI Man, Beyer, and Mr. Speakers what their BOM costs are and send it to Audeze, and we'll post our information. (Note from me - BOM = bill of materials) You can see by the SELLER label this is the actual reply from Audeze official. Audeze has since deleted the comment, but I was amazed to see someone both bold enough to ask this question, and Audeze being bold enough to reply. I screenshotted the comment not realizing they later deleted the reply, immortalizing it forever. I think Dan of Mr. Speakers lurks Massdrop, and maybe others do too. What do you say? Can we get sign-offs from the major players to agree to post their production costs? Audeze has issued this incredible challenge, who will step up? [image]

"Murder Most Foul"
