Lol my friend has tried a couple of my headphones... Mainly the m100 (returned a while ago lol), sony mdr 1r(dynamat modded), and the gr02(the random budget in ear). Everytime he listens and says nothing... A couple days ago he just tells me he's getting a pair of ue900s... Because i randomly mentioned it to him a couple weeks ago.
My friends dad is also getting him a wireless beats because he gets them for free...
And also he's jumping from a skullcandy 50/50 to a ue900 and i'm not even sure if he's going to like them lol
I'm jumping from V-Moda LP2's to JH16 pros I'd guess that's an even bigger jump but then again I know my ears and they're fussy. I was going to get JH 10x3's but I knew if I ever heard an IEM or full size can that sounded better I'd never be satisfied, so I ended up splitting hairs between the 13 and 16.
I really hope your friend likes them, to make that big a jump and not be impressed would really be a shame.
