Had another good read, a few things that come to mind;
1. Sound quality rightfully isn't everything. For example the HE-6 drops "points" for its lackluster design, questionable build quality and uncomfortable nature, more so than other Hifimans due to it's price. This just further accentuates why this is one of the best reviews ever
2. That David favors cold or analytical headphones only goes to show how natural, transparent and outright awesome the LCD2 and LCD3 really are, at #12 and #8 respectively.
3. The HE-500 really is the sweet spot for price/performance. I'd also like to see the HE-400 as I'd guesstimate it would make the top 30.
4. I'm buying an LCD-3 and blaming David if my wife finds out.
I'm going to tell her.
But yeah, its a really great review and helpful overlook. And I'm sure will be used for a long time for references. It's just when some people try and spoil the fun of debate with this kind of sarcasm annoys me. Makes me wonder why some peeps are on here.
"David, could you revisit your entire work. I don't think your esteem of my current headphone is high enough."
(plus I've been up all night with a teething baby... everything is annoying me this morning. Don't mind me ;)
