They're pretty comfortable, I find, for portables. And of all the portables I've tried, they sound the best and most dynamic after wear-in. But like the other AT portables I've really used, they have a **long** break-in period.

I'm also 15, so if you shared your insight I would appreciate it.
Bought the ALO-780 for $350usd used and shipped to Australia . I used to have a job and bought a lot of things. Since I have sold them and gotten into audio and bought some stuff. Upgraded and then my mum needed to buy a new car etc. So we borrowed some money and for X-mas I got like $4000 worth of stuff Built a $2600 computer and bought a few audio things . Getting a job is your best bet. Buy stuff, sell it on here and upgrade.

I purchases some fake Apple dual-driver IEMs and realized that they were probably counterfeit, fortunately the Amazon Marketplace seller let me cancel.

I also ordered those $15 Chinese full-sized woodies, tried to cancel but never heard back, I regret that for sure!

Never regretted a pair that I purchased and received yet though, knock on wood

Haha, based on this thread, there are no good cans out there. It does go to show that we all have our personal tastes, and you can't please everyone.

I really don't regret my headphone purchases. If you don't like em, sell em. Take a small loss and realize that the next person might love them.

The TF10 they were so big and awkward, they sounded very artificial to me, not even worth the $100 i paid for them.

I really didn't like the modded Grado SR225 that I bought.

Agreed. I think my ES7 really only started to sing after 300 hours of burn-in, and the bass became more noticeable after around 400 hours. I haven't really had an issue with comfort either.

My only regret is a pair of Phillips HN060 IEMs. The first pair I had sounded decent but they only sounded good when the battery-powered amp/noise canceler was on. These broke within 3 months, and the RMA pair were atrocious, and have been sitting in a drawer ever since.

Sony MDR-XD100 & Sony XB300, Terrible sound in those cans (if you can call it sound).
Upgraded just a little bit to BEYERDYNAMIC DT770 PRO. now thats what I call NICE sound

Definitely second this. They're simply awful..... no redeeming qualities whatsoever so far as SQ is concerned. I only use mine if I want to practice my digital piano at night because they are, ironically enough, the most comfortable headphones I've ever worn. You can't even tell they're on.

I'd put my K701s as a close second. Not because they are a bad headphone per se, but I jumped back into the "high end" headphone game with both feet with these and they ended up being an incredibly poor match to my tastes and tonal balance preferences. I only still have them because I just don't make enough money to try again any time I want.

Agreed. Bright and coarse and generally horrible. Can't imagine why they're so popular.

I didn't like them much at all when I first got them, but now I really think they are dang good. Lack of bass, but it's defined. The highs seemed awfully sharp at first, but either they mellowed out with burn in, or my ears just got used to it.

Didn't like the A900 I bought though; sounded muddy in the low/low-mids, and the highs weren't anywhere near as detailed as the AD700.

I've lately come to regret buying my Triple Fi 10's. I've had to replace the cable 3 times. The UE cable has pathetic durability. I treat these earphones like a newborn baby, yet somehow, the cable always manages to snap after a few months use.
I have ibuds that have been chucked around, stepped on, scrunched up in my gym bag, and yet the cable is still in perfect working order.
