Lol. Me too(kind of). I bought the solo, and my friend broke it, so I got cash for it. With that cash, I bought the SE215, and my audiophile journey began. I guess I shouldn't regret buying a solo as it lead to this entire hobby.

At least it's a beat solo hd and not the regular beat solo *shrugs* those are so horrible like all bloated flabby bass and that's it.

TripleFi10 - Poor fit, and a driver failed due to constant insertion adjustment whilst sweating at the gym. Couldn't claim warranty as I purchased from eBay overseas.

 

However, they sounded fantastic to me at the time as I had only previously experienced LoFi. They were a revelation that lead me to seek out more. And for that reason, I don't really regret the purchase.

The newest DT880 @600ohms, the old DT880 are much better.

Mine would be AKG-550 not because they sounded bad but because they were to big for my head.

I've never owned them, but I've demoed them on several occasions, and that's what's kept me from buying them.  While I love the spacious cups, it's literally impossible for me to get a good seal.

MDXD-100, good highs and mids but the bass was hollow and distorted 

 

Coby noise canceling headphones, broke too easy 

 

various no name earbuds 

 

Sentry noise canceling headphones. sounded okay didn't last long. 

 

Targus noise canceling. Sounded almost better than the AKG's I had. But they broke. 

 

Unknown brand Water proof  headphones, they turned sticky and began to ooze apart like the plastic was breaking down. all I remember is that they were blue and they smelled odd. 

 

I don't regret the MDRV150's even thSuperlux HD572outh they are unpopular here for some reason. First pair of phones to last me for years. I had my first pair from 2006-2008 until The tv sat on them. The second pair got snapped in my laptop bag. 

Third pair still alive. 

 

I regret throwing away my AKG-145's after the cord became detached from the drivers and the elements became rattly

They sounded pretty good but I found them way too uncomfortable. The weight didn't bother me too much, but the headband did, gave me headaches.

Fortunately they were really easy to sell and I got all my money back.

It's going to sound odd, but I much prefered my HE-400s that I unfortunately sold to upgrade to the Audeze.

Fischer DBA MKii - the treble was too much for me with my EDM music, bad choice on sound signature. Needed to read more about iems.
