For some time now, when going through bouts in which I have less than enough money for the headphones I want, I have tended to acquire free or near-free headphones of dubious quality and immense quantity, seeing if I can find any gems. So far I've only found one headphone this way that I truly liked, but yet I keep going. How many other Head-Fi'ers do this, regardless of monetary condition? I bet many of us do. List your crappy cans, y'all.
Here's my current stash of the below-average and a short description of each:
My DealExtreme Designer's Folding Headset (Fake Beats Solo) is quite horrid to listen to. They cost me ten dollars and I used them as a joke one day to confuse people who know I despise Beats. Surprisingly, I found their sound above their price range when listening to soft jazz, but it still wasn't at all good.
My Yamaha Generic Keyboard Headphone are the only ones out of my cheapies that I actually listen to and love often, simply because they present things better than I could ever expect from a free headphone. A friend of mine gave them after buying an ATH-M50, having disregarded them and never used them before then. After only a few minutes of listening, I decided they'd been my best free item ever. They're just black plastic with silver circles over the cups on both sides. Dual flimsy cable. Plasticky On-Ear.
My Koss Base-Level On-Ears aren't even listed on Koss's website, as they're the absolutely generic shame of the brand. They lack the flash of the KTX8 or the good sound of the PortaPro, and sound very quiet and distant no matter what you do to them.
The crown jewel of my current array needlessly bad headphones are the Hamilton Electronics HA-6 (600 Ohm), a Chinese-made educational headphone from the mid-Eighties. I cannot stand to listen to them, as they make absolutely everything sound extremely harsh. Every single tone, from piano notes to bass drums, distort on this absolute piece of junk. They're also uncomfortable and useless without a dedicated system, to boot.
So, Head-Fi, show us your junk!
