    This video is awesome but i kept skipping it for so many times because from the title i couldnt understand even remotely what the hell was going to be reviewed. Do what you want with the thumbnails but at least keep the titles clickbaity but TELLING WHAT THE VIDEO IS ABOUT! Was it really worth it to name it this way instead of "xxxxxx$$$$ earphones!"?

    How about you review headphones that people can actually afford. You review products no one can afford and when on a rare occasion you review something that we can actually afford, you just shit on them. When looking for some new tech I can actually afford, your channel is useless.

    Linus would be so jealous, I got my $20 JLab on-ear headphones from Shopko and I got them plugged into my $2700 gaming computer,
    and I got my windows default sound settings set to 24 bit, 196khz, with Windows Sonic turned on with virtual 7.1 Surround Sound.
    This baby has a whopping 20hz - 20khz frequency response, with Synthetic soft velvety foam that makes up the entire headband and earcups.
    The headphones only weigh 9 oz too! Great for if you got small snowflake ears, and a big head, like myself.

    "And then the workers take the saran wrap... Er.. Electro Static plastic film and suspend it between the two cases. With this method, A higher form of sound can be achieved. Next time on how its made..."

    In an edit. Hell fucking no you shouldn't buy those. I don't care how good it is. For $2000? I'm willing to bet EVERYTHING in that set up doesn't cost more than $250 to make. Then to top it all off, they're charging that price and then literally shitting on you by only giving it a micro USB? That shit better have thunderbolt at that cost.

    Current gen flagship smartphones already have DACs with the accuracy that is more than adequate for most audiophile needs and since this pair of headphones already comes with its own amplifier, you won't have to worry about the output volume of your phone anyway.

    Hey Linus, I have the FIIO player with the FIIO Headphone amp hooked up to my SURE in-ear headphones people look at me crazy when I set up on the plane. But when I let them listen to them they have this look that I may not get them back. Unless you have tried something like this, you will never know!!!! I paid $450 for my set up so the headphones are not the top of the line ones.
