Phoning It In: How your Headsets Display About Your Preference   Leave a comment

headphonesAgain a different short article i found remarkable around the topic of earpiece’s, what would you need to do if i didn’t post this ehh? you’d have to look at the initial article, the chances you found it could be slim, so think yourself fortunate that i’ve shared this excellent short article with you.

Lately, it seems everybody walking the streets listening to tunes on their earpieces, what sound? We do not get. We presume we know. Is the punk rocker at the rear of the coach secretly rocking to Britney Spears? Or is the tracksuit-bottomed, highlight-headed lass watching for her friends, in fact moshing out with Black Flag? The pinstripe power suit on the coach could possibly be a huge Public Enemy fanatic or the local ASBO might be a jazz fan with a affection for Coltrane’s sax playing.

People that do not dress in any music-themed gear style can remain securely indistinctive to the world at large as music consumers. Or can they? Here are two designs and what they are saying about you:

Skullcandy are a brand new-ish product (founded 2003) and intended squarely in the postpunk/goth/emo/whatever crowd. The evidence is in the name and the kid-friendly Stencilled graphitti skull emblem. Designed to go along with bullet belts, Atticus shirts and skinny fit jeans, (the last relics of true subculture now comfortably distant and changed by mere expenditure of icon and products in one. Punk’s early figure, i.e, the flaunting of poverty may be overtaken by a generation primed to consume ready-ripped jeans and spraypaint-effect shirts, I, uh, mean whatever, man). Skullcandy earphones appear in a variety of loud colours, as well as a stark black and white for maximum application. Given the markup in worth, it appears extremely improbable a consumer would acquire these headsets unless it is to build a statement by the music itself. This individual (even though they’re an 80 year old woman) is way more likely to be taking note of My Chemical Romance than they are Mozart.

Sennheiser headphones, distinctive by their less significant, professional design tend to be more the domain of the audiophile, the melody nut as well as the gadget freak. This one, though they might be attired in comparable manner to that Skullcandy kid, is far more probable to be listening to Charles Mingus, a vintage Delta Blues or folk piece, appreciating it the way one may a fine wine, in addition to all slight cultural nuances therein. This individual is serious about songs, and his/her disdain for bands of the time could be equally important. Imagine a lecture at any second on the genius of Belgian techno or a quantity of obscure Japanese arse-band (NOTE: arse-music is not a real genre…yet)

So, the peripherals we use in the 21st century say as much about us as our album collections might. Even when we do not desire them to? That undoubtedly seems being the case, anyhow. Next: How come we iPod users so bloody smug?
