Recently, after killing some headphones, I was shopping for some more on Amazon. And something rather concerning started to become apparent. Looking through the specs and reviews for most headphone, everyone seemed only concerned about one thing about them. Bass. Now don’t get me wrong, bass is important, but then again so is treble. And mid-range.
This REALLY annoys me. The human hearing range is approximately 20Hz – 22KHz. So why the fuck are all these idiots only concerned about DA BASS. Which IIRC is usually agreed at everything below 200Hz. So why not only cater to 10% of the human hearing range.
So I’ve decided we need a new development in speaker/headphone technology for these mindless idiots. The 0.1 Surround sound system. We find a shitty quality system, dump all speakers aside from the sub-woofer. Then we over power it with a shitty cheap amp, and wire it into a £5 speaker dock, and sell it to the kids. From what most modern music is nowadays (starting to sound like 124 instead of 24 here :|), nothing aside from the bass is needed.
Infact, why not just sell these kids explosive charges they can put in their ears; after all, sound is just a pressure wave, just like an explosion. If we sell high enough amounts of these things hopefully it’ll either knock some sense into them or something.
Then for the rest of the world, who have ears that can hear things above 200Hz, we actually can sell decent shit, instead of the overpriced, overhyped, oversold shitty headphones/speakers that have flooded the market in recent years.
