It's what one can afford, you have your exotic car drivers who think a $3K plus DAP is a drop in the bucket and then you have your KIA Rio (the model without AC) drivers who are completely satisfied with their Clip/E6/Skullcandy rig. Nothing wrong with either if it's what you can afford, pretty good chance 99.9% of the latter will ever own or hear the difference in the Clip rig vs. the AK240!

I'm not sure I'd consider the Abyss 1266 even remotely "portable".

It reminds me of a medieval torture tool. Bulky, made largely out of metal and tightly clamps (well, hugs) the head. It must sound amazing though!

It's pretty great. Better than the LCD-3 at least but it's uncomfortable AF for me.

I've never tried it but I have a problem with really heavy cans and they look extremely heavy. They must be with all that metal!

Yeah, they are. They don't actually seal, just rest in your head. It felt like it was going to fall off for me, which is very scary.

If it's that loose, someone like me probably will knock it off. Not that I'll get a chance to purchase one anytime soon anyways :o

I think that guy's commenting more on the why the makers have to charge so much for the AK240, for example, not one's ability to afford them.

Oh I know where Repli is coming from deltasun I'm just saying what is closer to reality for most. This like any other crazy hobby we might have (including the addiction) if we reaaly want it we can make it happen on any budget:cool:

This is my current end game set up, I honestly spend alot of time in between school and my house I can't invest in a full size, but I probably don't want to since I have had a few fullsize but wasn't  really satisfied. I love the sound of my 535's, if anything I might just get a custom blue or red cable haven't decided if I want all red or spidey colors. But they sound absolutely blissful and the mids are amazing, bass is good not great but the mids are worth it. The isolation is pretty amazing yesterday, I got bit by a dog and didn't hear it until after it was tugging my pants, that's how good the isolation is.
