 Did anyone actually say that? I didn't see it.
 You know you replied to me a couple of days ago in the Orpheus topic with almost word for word the same spiel? And before that I've seen you drop the same post at least two other times. 
 I've had my Stax phones for about 1.5 years. I'm a klutz and have dropped them half a dozen times onto my carpeted floor. No issues so far. My Audeze 2.1 phones (bought new, can't remember the year) have had the cables replaced three times, the headband twice, and the ear pads once, but no problems with the drivers.
I'm planning to get new headphones just for TV/movies. I'm debating between the Sennheiser 800S and the Stax L-700.  I'm leaning towards the Sennheiser 800S for comfort, bass, and sound stage.  I think great bass and sound stage benefit a lot of movies. Any opinions? I'm going to audition the 800S, but probably will not get a chance to try the L-700 any time soon. I use my Stax 009s on a different system for music listening.
 You compared them or are making a guess?
Sadly, I have not had an opportunity to hear them yet. I'd like to read more hands-on impressions too.
Not trolling. Just tired of hearing about how the Orpheus is too expensive from people who would not buy it even if it were much much less expensive, have never heard it, and have little experience with headphones in that class. Sorry to pick on you. You are certainly not alone in this. We have an entire topic with dozens of similar posts.
I never eat anything but Shoprite store brand white bread for $1 a loaf. I don't understand anyone spending much more than that, because the cheap bread seems perfectly good to me. The most I'd ever spend on a loaf of bread is $2. That $8 wheat bread is over priced in my opinion. And my opinion has value even though I've never tried the more expensive bread, can't afford the more expensive bread, and would not buy it even if it was priced at a fraction of the asking price....
 If Sennheiser cut the price by 90% they would still be too expensive for you, so why does it matter to you if they are 5K or 50K? If your frame of reference is $40 headphones, it makes sense that you draw the line at 30 times that price (1200), but really of what importance is the opinion of an entry level headphone user to those playing the TOTL game? (For the record, I think they are too expensive too, but these kinds of comments are beyond silly.) 
I have not. Was hoping he would reply to my post above from last week.
