    New headphones...is this right?
    I just bought some new headphones (iFrogz Toxix). They're not very high-end, but they're not super cheap either. I tried them out and was a bit confused...everything sounded a little different than through the Apple earbuds my iPod came with. I can't put my finger on it, if there's just more bass, if it's the fact that they're over-the-ear instead of in-the-ear, or if there's something wrong with them. Everything sounds a little further away, and with more bass. Is this normal with over-the-ear headphones? Do you think they're bad headphones?

    all headphones sound different. sound definitely differs for in ear vs over the hear, and the drivers and cone material can drastically alter the sound, just like any shelf or floor speaker.

    Hm...well, I had my sister listen to them and she agreed that it sounds a bit underwater-ish, but it's not that bad so I think I'll keep them. Thanks for the reply.
