I had the MX980s for about 3 weeks, I would not dispute that they do sound amazing but how much better are they compared to the PK1s ? For me I can read swf's and kostalex's and Mike over at headfonia extensive reviews on earbud's all day long but only way I am going to find out for myself is buying a pair lol.
And I did that with the MX980s, the biggest issue I had was the fit ( just like many others) and somewhat of the overall style.
What's next for me ....
CrossRoads HR1's $150
Audio Technica ATH-CM700 TI $113
