For $20 you can actually buy some non-awful sounding headphones (jvc marshmallow, vsonic gr99)

Yeah I'm aware of that but unfortunately that was when I had no idea about quality IEM's, I used to think the earphones that came with the iPhone sounded great *shiver*.

Today I have heard something that puts all the generics, ipod buds and other craptacular eadphones/headphones to shame.

 

Little did I know I've had a Koss KSC22 stored away for years. Pulled them and gave them a listen. I can seriously tell you that I'd rather a generic ebay $1 earphone or the Apple ibuds to it anyday.

Philips' D Stretch. Literally sounds like a couple of cheapo speakers dropped in a well. Mids and highs are receded and the bass is just all over the place.

dear lord have mercy, i remember these headphones when i was in elementary school, i researched and found what they were

Califone 3068AV.

of course back in the day i didnt care what hi fi audio sounded or what it was you im a kiddie.

but haha you can change the volumes on either earcup, i didnt see why that feature was useful for.


in highschool now. we use these even more crappy headphones comparable to airplane cans.

thats why im happy to bring my own headphones.

Audio technica T20

they're cheap and actually good for the money but not for me at the level of audio i prefer in listening with.

but i bought them for a quick test so im not complaining after which i returned them.

Funny you mention those; I just ran across a pair shoved in a corner at a friend's house.

I have a small collection of brightly colored and funny shaped headphones ... so I bought the Aroc SBP-8400 phones because I found them attractive to look at ... but the SOUND ... oh my goodness ... two tin cans and string work better ! Really worse than any $1.00 bargain bin ear bud I have ever heard. But ohhhhhhhhhhh the black and yellow ... the Czar would be proud ... not to mention the Czarina. smily_headphones1.gif

Oh man, elementary school headphones! We had a pair similar to those Califones, except these were baby blue and didn't have any controls on the side besides a pot. They were mainly for our story read-along software (If you give a mouse a cookie, he'll want some milk to go with it!) and WordPerfect narration. Man, did they suck. If I were in charge of the supplies department, I'd find the best $5 pair you could get so kids wouldn't have to go through complete garbage.

It's funny as I was reading through the beginnings of this thread a few noted the Grado SR325i as the worst headphone they'd ever heard...and someone even noted the ATH W1000X. LOL. You guys must have wallets made of platinum if these are the worst you've heard. The SR325i are not my favorite, its like the mids are missing or something. I just got the W1000X and my initial impression is that I prefer them to my recabled Senn HD650's.

OEM or ripoff?

I doubt they're OEM; they're just uncreative design. The earcups are much lower quality than on the Sonys, and Sony doesn't OEM those (especially in a color they don't offer).
