For me, it was the Edition 8's. I don't actually own them, but I listened to my uncle's pair. They just sounded weird to me, kind of like the music wasn't coming from the right location. Of course I've heard worse, but you expect those to be terrible. I was expecting these to be some sort of revelation for me, haha.Seeing as the best pair of headphones I've ever owned are the Brainwavz HM3(which I love), I may have no clue what I'm talking about.
