Not my thing but the SL150s are not too bad actually. Unlike some of the other celebrity headphones, they don't come with overwhelming bass and its actually fairly tight and fast. The treble is pretty mild as well. If you want this style of headphone, they are better sounding than the Beats and the Sync by 50 Cent.
TD for all the bs comments that were not related to the f'ing product...
Are you thumbing down yourself as well then?
Hopefully just figuratively, and not literally.
Please keep both hands on the keyboard.
As for the headphones:
Sound quality? That's subjective to the user, not the non-user. If they're tuned to accentuate the frequencies pleasing to your ears, they're great. Otherwise, meh.
Build quality? That's subjective to the user, not the non-user. If you treat them like the delicate flowers you laid on the bed for your partner , then they'll last. Treat them like your pet after they ate the flowers and peed on your pillow, they might not.
Style? That's subjective to the user, not the non-user. Shiny? Oooh....Flashy? Ahhhh....
Price? That's subjective to the buyer, not the non-buyer. What's a fair price for you to pay to be part of the "cool" or "exclusive" crowd? For some, money is not an issue. For others, it is. Hence, we have SD to help us find the cheapest price at any given time we're looking for a particular product.
Value? That's subjective to everyone. Great for those who are now considered "cool" for rocking the latest and supposedly "greatest", and also the celebrity earning a piece of the profits. Perhaps not so great for the kids or parents who save up for weeks or months to buy this only to have it break, get stolen or realize too late that these are not really one of the best headphones on the market.
I thought it was a slick deal because maybe:
1. It was the cheapest posted price for the item(s) at the time it was posted.
2. There was a ~70% discount before coupons, GCs or scamming techniques were applied on item(s) that others have previously paid full MSRP.
3. They are available across the country to those with a Staples B&M having stock of those item(s).
4. Your hip-hop loving kids will appreciate you "hooking" them up with a "cool" niche product that, to you, may be "crazy" expensive at MSRP and spec-wise garbage compared to your audiophile-status cans.
5. The feeling you get when your hard-working and respectful kids (if you have them) hug you, smile with eyes lit up and call you the best "dad" or "mom" in the world when you gift them these headphones, even though you can't usually afford to get them more than the necessities, is totally worth it.
Being able to achieve #5 with meager means definitely makes this a slickdeal for me.
Dude......was your last promotion at work based on thumbs up or down? Did your wife threaten to leave you if your deal got thumbed down? Are you connected to a life support system that is plugged directly into your computer and powered solely by thumbs?
If you answered no to all of these questions, you should realize that thumbs up or down on some web forum for deals really aren't all that serious in the overall scheme of things. You really shouldn't get so emotionally invested in how people feel about your deal. Whether the thumbs up or down rain in on something you post, tomorrow the sun will still rise, the sun will still set, and Lance Armstrong will still be an a-hole. Life will move on, I promise.
Actually, my promotions are really based on a vote by the managers.
Corporate annual reviews for raises and promotions at my workplace are not judged purely on performance, haven't been for quite some time now it seems.
It's more of a boys or girls club, and if you're "in".
But I get what you're saying, I shouldn't take this stuff too personally.
I'm not trying to be defensive, nor am I crying out for TUs.
I'm simply trying to understand why SDers would TD a posted deal without explaining their reasoning.
If we were in a Staples store and both of us were looking at these headphones and saw the prices discounted 70%, and then suddenly I said, "Thumbs Down!" and walked away, wouldn't you be curious as to why?
At least to inform yourself before deciding whether or not to buy them if you were at all interested?
That's why I'm asking for explanations.
Anyways, I'm over it now. Valentine's Day sentiment has worn off.
