I believe all of the above listed headphones would become a blessing to my ears when I was 12 and listened to music from $1 ear-buds. But it was the age when I didn't mind sound quality at all; it was the music itself and more importantly the feelings about it that mattered more. I still remember how I loved Michael Jackson's songs and even danced to them with that terrible sound quality. Nowadays I have nice headphones, decent amp/dac, and flawless sources, which altogether give me sound quality that I could not even imagine in the past. However, they cannot gave me the feelings that I had about music when I was young. Michael Jackson still sounds good but I miss the one I was crazy about tens of years ago. And equally so, I miss my $1 ear-buds.
