Audio memory is too unreliable to base such different ratings on with one reference headphone set. Too easy for someone to assign a different rating to a headphone that should have deserved the same as a previous one.

And still, I might not trust your ratings against each other even then unless you are a professional reviewer doing it regularly. It's nothing personal, but even people that regularly try to apply a rating scale have to be careful to do so consistently over time when it comes to subjective evaluations. That's just a known issue with rater reliability in subjective evaluations of all kinds of things, and it has been discussed plenty in qualitative assessment and evaluation methods. One must continually work to keep one normed with ones original evaluation scale.

 

I'm doing that now. Finally got what I can call a Mid Fi refrance Closed can to compliment the DT 880 as my open. So from here out just need lots of head time 

 
Btw my Shure 840 with heavy mods sounds welll amazing :O like the K550 but with well a touch more aggresion and energy, and non of the K550s icky fit

Heck America is more willing to solve the "cyber bullies" issues than tackle the "bullies" that have existed in family units for centurys... It's complete bull.

 
So Charity sales might be the way I'll go. 

 

You're still going about it the wrong way.  Hang on to the headphones.  At an appropriate time - when you've accumulated enough gear (or can pitch in with other head-fiers) - look at organising a raffle (ie a giveaway - not a sale) for charity.

 

Pre-requisites would still need to be:

 - original vendor must give his blessing for you to take this route & would get appropriate accreditation

 - Jude would have to be OK with it

 - independent drawing

 

Every time you mention "sale" or "selling" a review sample I cringe.  No matter what the intended purpose - it's still not strictly ethical.

Well then allow me to keep them for many years, at which point I will call upon the heavenly bodies to guide me to a worthy charity in which to raffle them off. Ofc with ATH I offered to ship it back :O, and I have not heard back from him in a week q.q but that is how he is... after he agree'd to ship I didn't hear from him till I got a package at my door 3 weeks later xD 

 

Point being here, KEEP THEM AND LOVE THEM. Point taken :3
