I'd say Sennheiser are the most broadly overrated headphones, especially in the audiophile community. I liken the brand to Ducati in a way, they have been very effective at a building a brand name targeted at a specific group of people, but I think people generally exaggerated and overrate pretty much all their products.
All Monster Beats.
Horrible rough and unnatural sound.
Massive and annoying advertisement all over the f*king world.
The company just brainwashing young people's minds...
What do you think about its successors, Beyerdynamic BT 1350?
They are almost shines for me: jazz, electronical, light rock and classical performs great and VERY detailed.
Though, not too suitable for heavy genres... dry sounding... bass isn't strong and not too consolidated.
From the other side, being EQalised, the basses become quite decent (4+/5).
So, I want to hear - whether they differs a lot from "first version" - T50p, or not?
I guess that has a lot to do with Marketing.Sennheiser probably spend millions on Marketing, but most of their "cheap" ranges are made in China. German brand Teufel also produces his headphones in China, but they are truly fab in Price/ Quality Balance. Their Titan in ears for example, come at 100 Euro, but other more "famous" brands would ask the double and more for this product, and reviewers seem to be very influenced by the pricetag,thinking that more exoensive is better.I would advice to Review a headphone/ in ear only on it´s Sound merits rather that it´s pricetag. Why? simply because and EU / US made product is not better than an Asian produced product. This said , brings us to the question why Grado n ears are outragious priced as the are produced in China and Japan. In Japan the labour Standards might be the same or even better than in the West and workers get decent payment. This could be one explaination, but material wise the Grado GR 8 and 10 are just in plastic, and if you see what Ultrasone Pyco and Yamaha EPH-100 (same Technology) deliver at a lower pricetag than you can see the that labour circumstances don´t explain everything. The "Made in China" Grado´s come at a pricetag of 89 Euro for what Looks like a 10 Euro in ear. Most China produced in ears of big names are better and cheaper, and come in Aluminium, and even Wood.
The exellent JVC (made in Japan) HA-FX 1000 come in Wood and alu, funny enough they have the Trademarks of the upper Grado´s and did come also less expensive than the grado GR8 . I wonder why Grado didn´t think of themselves to build their typical Trademarks in an ear concept? There is nothing wrong with building in plastic as they do with the SR phones, wixh Comes at a very good Price even in Europe, but for the GR 8 , 299 Euro are simply to much, at half the Price, I might give them a Chance...
