Just curious... do you put the same thought into your headphones and car stereo as you put into your home set-up? Not looking for details, just generalities.
I think about them, but don't have the same standards as I do for the home system. I've got decent sound in both cars, but no subwoofers or extra amps or anything like that (JVC CD, Alpine speakers in one car; Blaupunkt cassette, Jensen and Boston speakers in my 27 year old beast). The Alpine speakers came in the car... I don't think I'd ever pay much money for car speakers.. certainly Polks are priced beyond my desire. My first car speakers were Jensen Triaxials in about 1981, and I've had a soft spot for them ever since.. that is what is running in the back of my car (they were only $40 at WalMart several years ago). ****, most cars can't even take a 6x9 anymore.
I paid maybe $40 for a pair of Sony midsized headphones many years ago, and still use them, despite all the soft black covering flaking off the earcups. And I have a decent pair of Philips phones here at work, but they weren't more than $25.
So, do you care? Anyone shopped for headphones in an attempt to match that "Polk" sound... do you think headphones prematched (supposedly) to specific speakers, or at least a brand of speakers, would sell well??
