I've heard some Ohms that didn't sound particularly appealing. But the worst were speakers that I actually auditioned in store before buying them: Phase Technology 730es. Harsh. Very harsh. Especially noticeable after comparing them side by side with the Infinity Overture 3s I bought sound unheard to replace them. Night and day. 
I'm, ah, 65, and my first Jazz epiphany was in 1963 when the marching band of which I was a member played a lift of a Billy May big band arrangement of Suppe's Poet and Peasant Overture from an album called "Shall We Swing" by Glen Gray.
