Paid 70 usd with taxes and shipping fee (50 usd product + 14 usd shipping + taxes). I really don't think this is worth 70 usd. I would pay something like 30 USD plus shipping on them (compared to my other headphones).
My other headphones:
Creative Aurvana Live
I've heard how those are almost as good as higher end headphones. IMOH they are nowhere near the Sennheiser HD-25 (200 usd) or even the Creative Aurvana Live (100 usd).
Some people were saying how the S500 sounds better than the ATH M50, this is ********. I already heard them and the M50 destroys the S500.
Why so much hype? You made me expend this much? I was expecting more!
