How the hell do you know your ears wouldn't tell you something to the contrary? haha.
MEDO, you can't make such a claim like I think they are the best anything headphone, you haven't heard them.
You can say by all accounts many people seem to think they are the best, and I can disagree only if I've actually heard them.
Hence having a subjective experience with them.
I will say that the 009 is the most natural sounding headphone I've heard, it does great with most genres. But I'd take an LCD-x over it any day
for my preferred taste: Metal.
The best overall headphone I've ever heard is the HE-6.
Maybe if you actually get the chance to hear them, I'd take your word with a grain of salt.
So true, I've heard speakers and headphones which were supposed to be the bees knees but I turned out hating how they sound. It doesn't make sense to recommend or trash something you've never heard. And this goes for anything
