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. 

THIS. I went though this A few months back.

Ultrasone 780. Great sound but didnt last 6 months...... even bought a $70 case thinking long term protection when stored...... great way to invest 300 bucks right

ATH CKM500's. I love them for what they are, but the high mids are seriously harsh for my ears. Although I kinda want another magnetic pouch from Audio Technica so I can use it as a money pouch xD

Fostex T50RP's. Probably one of the most underused headphone over $150 on my rack. Either I suck at modifying headphones, or I just don't like the sound of them. It's most likely that I suck at modifying headphones :P

Don't know if I regret buying it the most but the XBA-NC85D sure comes close...
Thankfully i paid only $80 for it...
Had I paid the full retail $500 I'd be very sorry...
As a $80 iem with nc its not bad...

KEF M500

They were overpriced and had a very disappointing sound signature.

post #1495 of 1682

OK I didn't exactly BUY them but sorta kinda traded for them, but Sennheiser HD428. Hollow tinny sound. I've owned several pairs of $20 to $40 IEMs that sounded much more natural and much better (Senn ie4, cx475, cx275, Pioneer  721Ks) and my HD280 Pros as well. Honestly they just sound like cheap $20 low end no name headphones.

Really? How is neutral sound sig disappointing? I mean it's really hard for a closed back to sound that neutral, and the sound sig was totally intended to be neutral.

 Well I spent weeks modding them too and gave up. Just don't like the sound and regret having gotten swept away with all the hyperbole surrounding them.

Sony XB-500 - rubbish
Denon AH-D340 - worth half of what they cost
