Oh!! tell me about it...... I call manyIEM's sound bad since I have A/B ed IEm's Since I ever got Hold to a em... but preference plays a huge roll here.... till u find ur Perfect sig , every IEM should sound crap to u.. Most IEM's I found are either has a Crappy Bass oriented sig or Completely ignored the word clarity... IE80's some how do sound great after a harmless mod.. ( Most impressive)
and I will gladly comment on Amp's once I get the T1'a And Shozy's..
That's disappointing that a 450 dollar pair of headphones wouldn't sound great stock. But I should try them with a better mp3 def.
Bought for 292 from amazon, not a third party seller. While always possible they can be fake I highly doubt it. I have checked all the tell tale signs from the pics here and they all point to real.
This is what I'm leaning towards. I sure do wish I had a pair of 20 dollar iems to compare them to. Maybe I'll buy some and just give them to my girlfriend after since I broke hers anyway.
Yeah I fell for that scam with the cardas cables for my hd650s and I don't hear a difference. As a matter of fact if anyone wants a cardas fat pipe cable, pm me.
IMHO even I wont trust some Opinion's about cable's.. May be im wrong. But I can always live that.
