Its one of the first version of the full sized headset from icemate with separate mic, it costed like 60-80$ I think but the sound was worse than my 10$ supermarket headphone I bought by curiosity.

Grado SR60. Read the infamous Corey Greenberg review and expected heaven to descend upon my ears. Instead I got nasty, uncomfortable, fatiguing sound. Lesson learned!

Skullcandy bar none, what's worse is after they broke I took them back to get replaced, should have left them in the bin.

AKG K340.I seriously underestimated the amping requirements of these suckers.I had to re-do my whole setup, and after all that i still didn't like the way they sounded.

Was that the mkII version or the earlier version...v.2?

In my case it was k240S. They're not horrible, just a big disappointment compared to the 240DF(needs amp though) and dt250. Even sony v6 is better in some respects.

I've bought almost all of them on this forum, so I wouldn't want to say specifically.

It would probably have to be the freaking MINT, new in box that had never been opened K340s that I later sold to a scammer in SE Asia -- so I was out the K340s AND had to refund the jackass his money. (this took place on eBay, but he contacted me thru head-fi when I expressed concern... the one time I've been fooled online)....

It was too small an amount to bitch about though...

Until I saw what 2 pairs of NOS k340s recently went for in the FS forum... ARGH

Now to avoid confusion -- I had ANOTHER pair of nearly-new K340s that I sold to a very upstanding member on head-fi who happens to live in Asia. If you're reading this -- PLEASE realize I'm not talking about you!!

So the 2 k340s I have now are the 4th and 5th pairs I've owned, but I went through 3 mint or near mint sets to get them, so it's not a very happy memory.

Lesson learned: freaking HOLD ON to headphones. I didn't need the money when I sold them, and they've gone up in value since then.

To top it off, K340s are very difficult to amp, have a built-in terminate date because of the drivers, and are the heaviest headphones I own. But I'm NOT getting rid of them this time.
