All the other posters don't know what they're talking about, screw 'em and their stupid opinions. I have heard every single pair of headphones ever made, including all the headphones that I've never heard, and I can tell you that the [INSERT_CURRENT_GEAR_HERE] is the bestest. Trust me, my hearing is omniscient and nigh on perfect, and it has already determined that the [INSERT_CURRENT_GEAR_HERE] is the bestest of the bestest that will ever be bestest. Also, the [PREVIOUSLY_CURRENT_GEAR] is right up there too - just as bestest only not quite so bestest but pretty bestest so you can get that too. Don't get anything else. I have spend my own money testing all the headphones out there, and I promise you both of these are second to none, except maybe each other. I stake your life on it. I am not a troll.
Did I miss anything?
EDIT: You want real comedy? Let's all pitch in to send him a V150.
Yeah, that was far too well written and contained proper spelling and punctuation. You also didn't belittle anybody by name or use words that the forum autocensor would render as *'s. You also failed to mention anything about a "high end 24/96 DAC" which, as I correctly sleuthed out (I'll take my bow now "Thank you, thank you, first I want to thank my mother..."), was an E11 (currently an E12).* And let's not forget the frequent references to being employed in/proprietor of a professional studio.
I should send my dilapidated pair of V700, held together with duct tape, Gorilla glue, twist ties, and magic. And, of course it's fashioned from pieces of two different units, since between them there aren't enough non-broken plastic parts to build two complete, functioning sets. I could even offer a choice of pads--set #1, flattened and with dried out, cracked pleather; or set #2, which lost most of their pleather and which I "converted" to "soft" pads by removing the remainder of the pleather in a soapy water bath. Complete with the loose, worn out fit, these disparate elements should combine to create the greatest headphone our friend has ever heard.**
*Again, certainly nothing to sneeze at, but certainly not unusual enough to warrant the mystery and defensive obfuscation upon being confronted to name the equipment.
