I've read enough of the pro reviews to know they're not my thing. Most of their reviews are super positive - how can everything be great...wouldn't it all just be average on average? They believe in things I think are ridiculous - pebbles attached to cords, different brands of RAM sounding better than others, tiny cups you hang on walls to transform the sound of your speaker rig, etc. I'm laughing as I type this. I also generally find that the more lengthy a review is on SQ, the worse it is. I like user reviews that are short and to the point: "bass goes deep, has a lot of impact, isn't particularly detailed", "upper mids are recessed", etc. Those are the people whose ears I can generally trust. The guys who go on and on about their travels to the Mojave desert in search of rare wood used in instruments whose resonance is ideal for the cups of a headphone driver get a quick scroll down from me. There are a few exceptions to this though, darthnut's lengthy reviews are quite good. This has nothing to do with the LL or WES or BHSE though. I haven't read a word of any of those reviews if that tells you anything. :p
I agree. Pro reviews suck. My eyes just start glazing as soon as there’s mention of a Mpingo discs, cable elevators or any other audio voodoo.
