Gear mentioned in this thread:
Anyway, new topic I think. I was just thinking about it: being a Beyer owner carries with it additional complexities due to the whole three different impedances thing. What other headphone than a Premium Beyer has an appreciation thread in which people routinely ask "which one should I get?" Think about that for a moment. Most appreciation threads are just that--a place where people go to shower praise on a particular model. By that point you've already narrowed it down. And yet it isn't that simple for, say, a DT880.
I'm trying to think of other examples. I know that there are different revisions of some models (Audeze comes to mind), some people think there are different revisions of others (blue box M50 anybody?), and there are other cases where a revision of a product is different enough (or aimed at specific customer feedback) that it gets a different name (GR07 Bass Edition, for example). But in all these cases the differences are unplanned, whereas in Beyer's case they made three different versions on purpose.
Can anybody add some other examples of this weird situation, where there are multiple versions of the same basic model?

A frustrating read, though oddly amusing.
People were pretty damned mean to him right out of the gate, I can see why he was so defensive.
You're right, there definitely was some hostility there. However, as it wound along many folks who were earnestly trying to help him were quite understandably frustrated. He point blank refused to accept their advice. I initially thought after Eric's outing of his escapades in other audio communities that he might be deliberately stirring up trouble, but now I'm not so sure.
As I said, I'm torn about him. I admit to finding his threads (and the reactions he gets) amusing, but I have always responded as helpfully as I can. Looking a little more closely at his long history of similar behavior on other sites, I can only conclude that he very dearly needs help. I feel sympathy, and I also feel remorse that I may have gotten a bit carried away a few posts ago in what I thought at the time was uncovering a rather successful troll.
I regret that I brought all this up with my comment about seeing the V150 in the wild. I really think we should talk about other things now.
OH GREAT TMACIANS, I need a second opinion about something
can someone look at the second picture and tell me if that looks like its bent/damaged where it says "T1" on the Adjusters?
I think it is and it raises questions about how they were treated for me, and i was considering them until now but i'm just not sure anymore.
Doesn't look bent to me but it could just be the lighting, that is fairly heavy gauge metal on the forks, but anything can be bent if one tries.
Ask the seller to take some better pictures with the forks fully extended of both left and right, and flat out ask him if they are bent. If he swears they are not, you can always PayPal claim for misrepresented damaged goods, but let him know this up front.
Okay gents, this is last nights haul from HPB in dallas. I got all of this for no joke, $15. impressions? (BTW I thought I'd love Yessongs because it's got ALL of Close to the Edge on it, but ITS LIVE. AND TERRIBLY RECORDED )
