Headphones you regretted buying the most - Page 116

post #1726 of 1732

Sony MDR1RNC. Wanted noise cancelling. Got hiss. Terrible. Went on eBay in less than a year.

I'm going to say Ultrasone Pro 650 over all, since they're bad sounding and excruciating to wear.  Following that, I'm embarrassed to say Bose QC25 which I got for their noise cancelling on planes.  They do a decent enough job with that, but they really aren't a very good sounding phone for what they cost, even at the discount outlet price.

hmm, for headphone, it is Grado SR225, the fitting was not suitable for me, it clamp my ear directly and hurts after around 1 hour of using.

for earphone it is RHA T10i, it's too much bass for me and I feel the mid is too much recessed.

Got a pair of Piano Forte IX buds a couple months ago. They don't fit me well and probably because of that, they sound like crap. Waste of a huge amount of money.

If only I could find a headphone with the clarity, soundstage, and immense detail of the AKG crossed with the epic sub bass of the DT's. That would be the HOLY GRAIL for me.


I essentially have this problem with headphones, I just got my ETHER C and it's similar to how you feel the 702's sound in the bass (although not as bad as that). The HE-560 has amazing sub bass and good clarity but not as clear in the mids/highs as the ETHER C.

Sennheiser Urbanite


very uncomfortable to wear,  bass was way to heavy and an ear pad popped off first time I took them off and I could not get it back on.
