Kinda sad when a $250-$300 headphone like the Philips Fidelio X1, outclasses a headphone costing more than 17x as much. It's even built incredibly well.
Aesthetics goes a long way. It gives headphones a PREMIUM look.
Look at the Alpha Dog. It no longer looks like $100 (T50RP). It LOOKS as good as I'm sure it sounds.
Don't get me started on Philips, easily the most overlooked overperforming, underpriced line in all of audio.
