Krank up da bass, blud

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....

Ghetto negative/slide scanning method

They probably range from late 70s to late 90s, and even some as late as 2003 (Done for the car most likely). Now after discovering these, I only had one way to “play” them; the cassette deck in my car (I’m not THAT old-school, there is a CD changer connected to it :D)....
