Haha, I get what you mean. I did get sucked in by the ATH-CKM500 thread. They do some things well like immersive soundstage and extended treble, but ultimately aren't something I would use day-to-day. GR07 are my cup 'o tea and to be quite honest, I can't wait to get these and report on them. I'll give my honest opinion - I'm no fanboy or devotee of any brand. I'll be able to say how the two compare.
Why don't you change the price to $30 in your thread ClieOS?
I know what you mean,I also bit on the ATH's and was not impressed..Hope this impulse buy turns out better. I also bit on the new earpods as well in hopes to find a good replacement pair for my sony x player to use while at the gym.
