Wooh! Really expensive Sony headphones

After last month's beautiful-but-useless silver Minidisc player comes a pair of $3,299 headphones, complete with matching aluminium headphone stands. They're in the stupidly-expensive-and-not-all-that-clever Sony Qualia range. What's really bad is that they're replaced the $3,999 MDR-R10 headphones. They were awesome, mainly because they were made of 'wood from the Keyaki tree', the frame was magnesium, and the earphones were covered in Greek lambskin. These new things don't have any of that, just a hint of carbon fibre over the headband. Bah!


Comments:
A child in Africa dies of starvation every 3 seconds and there are people in America spending this kind of money on headphones. I really do pity them.
 
And they probably still have too much high-end.
 
what, the kids?
 
Isn't Sony a company from Japan? Sells to... the world? Jeez, Americans, the world's new niggers.
 
so why don't you buy a pair of these headphones for a dead african then..
 
How can any pair of headphones cost that much...? It's just ludicrous! I bet they aren't even that great.
 
yeah, hey fuckstick... nobody in england will buy them right?
 
America rules you commie!! lol.
 
There are quite a lot of them in UK. Me having the old ones and the new ones. Actually I prefer the old ones, but the new ones have its technical merits (more detail). Unfortunately they are less musical, though.

Mu-sly. You never listened them but you can bet they are not that great. No comments.

Ramtha, I see your point. I'd get rid of millions of luxuries first.(jewels, expensive watches, sport cars, 5 star hotels,...). At least this extravagance allows you to get the most of one of the best forms of artistic expression the man knows: the music. Even a dress can cost more.

When the world gave up on a lot of stupid extravagances, I'll willing to sell my headphones and send the money to Africa. (I'm Oxfam volunteer and support more ONGs, btw).
 
yes Americans are the jokes of the world, stooopid Americans
 
What about the Senn'er ones that cost about 4 times as much and come with their own tube amp. No-one's complaining about them.
 
I have 2 pairs and they are great! It's a pity you yankee scumbags have bad judgement.
 
Yeah, I kinda pity those dying children too. Sucks to be them, but I have my own problems - like deciding whether I'd rather enjoy a particular album with my Qualia 010 OR my MDR-R10 headphones.
 
I think it's funny how you all bash America. Yet you're the ones being racist, rude, and militant with your comments.

You complain about Americans being able to spend that much money on them, yet you make nowhere near that much money in a few weeks. It may seem like a large amount of money to you, but perhaps you should reconsider the fact that some Americans can make that much money in a week.

And about Africans dying of starvation everything 3 seconds I say this; Tell they're political leaders to adopt capitalism, and to set down their weapons and difference and work together to make life better for everyone and not just the few, and the problem will not exist anymore.

Knowledge is the key. Also, stop having unprotected sex. England is going to turn into the next Africa. Stupid Brits.
 
"A child in Africa dies of starvation every 3 seconds"

In the words of the Late Great Sam Kinison:

"It occurs to us there wouldn't BE world hunger if you people would LIVE WHERE THE FOOD IS AT! YOU LIVE IN A FUCKING DESERT! YOU SEE THIS, HUH? THIS IS SAND! KNOW WHAT IT'S GONNA BE A HUNDRED YEARS FROM NOW? SAND! GET YOUR SHIT, WE'LL MAKE ONE TRIP, WE'LL TAKE YOU WHERE THE FUCKING FOOD IS AT! WE HAVE DESERTS IN AMERICA, WE JUST DON'T LIVE IN THEM, ASSHOLE!"
 
I am pretty sure people live in Deserts in America.
 
They are just for show. Like the diamond studded cellphone and the 15 thousand buck linen sheets. Mildly amusing. They are not meant for social consciousness. Its for people who are able to realise that money is shit. You can just keep on and on....its got nothing to do with the people in africa or britain or the usa, no one will meet each other. There's a good quote by michael moore, i paraphrase, "My friends are kings and heirs, and rich business men, its no offence"....the people in power will not go easy :)
 
I tried some 189 euro bose headphones that would piss all over these.

And as for Americans I don't give a toss about them as all the world needs to do is stop sending you oil, stop using dollars and call all your loans in and your screwed and starving.

People starve because the food they were producing no longer grows or because people with guns steal it from them.

Grow up and grow a brain cell to use whilst your spouting out this crap.
