Well then, I guess I'm lucky the worst AKG's I've ever heard were a friends K540s.

Worst headphones I have ever heard? Some stupid dinky ones from the dollar general. I needed them to house some new drivers for a weekend project.

 

 

Worst ever headphones I have listened to that could be considered real headphones? I do not know, but I can say that I know of one that is terribly over priced and poplar that sounds pretty bad. 

 

Sennheiser HD800s. Don't get me wrong, they have great clarity, and have great sound stage.......but everything else is pretty bad. It seems like they sacrificed bass, mids, and any hopes of having a natural sound all for the sake of transparency. 

 

I have tried different amps, dacs, cables, everything. I simply can not find a way for these things to have the same full sound that even the HD600 has. 

 

The worst thing is the price. For 600 bucks they would be ok, but for 1300+........no.

The Hesh is a complete fail for me.

These:

Bought them back when I was using cheap iems. Threw away the receipt, then realized this headphone had rolled off bass and midrange starting at 500 Hz, and elevated treble. It even hurt my untrained ears at the time. Threw them away in the trash a day later.

I've heard the Monster DNA. Shrill highs and noticed some distortion at high volumes (past 70%) + uncomfortable. 

 

Now going to my list of worst sounding headphones.

Bought this as 12 yo expecting same quality of my broken Philips ear buds. My second earphone, worst this ever made by man, it's like a medieval torture tool.

I bought some earbuds at the dollar store for...you guessed it, one dollar! They sounded like absolute ****, but I guess they did produce sound, which is about all you can expect from a one dollar set of earbuds.

Do fake dre beats in-ears count? They sound tinny, The rattling might be its speakers, and noise leaks straight in, which defies the point of it being in-ear canals

The free white earbuds that come as standard with any Apple iDevice - crap sound, and won't stay in the ear!

post #1003 of 1513

Hmm... The worst one I've ever heard was a pair of earbuds from "better than nothing INC." I got on a school visit. Muffled sound, no bass, trebles sounded like you were listening to a pair of speakers from 100 feet away, and the fitment was below par. Nonetheless, they were free so I just gave them away to unleash my inner Santa for the holiday season.

Some cheap no name brand $10 headphones.

post #1005 of 1513

for me the worst "commercial" headphone brand selling here in the Philippines is the Infiniti brand, absolutely tinny, just sooo awful, even with the cheap price tag, dont go for it. If you want hi-fi on a budget, i recommend Soundmagic (for IEM) or Superlux (for HP), they are pretty common here.

my 2 pesos, i mean my 2 cents! =)
