Most underrated and overrated headphone? For a bit of fun :) - Page 15  

post #211 of 495
The HD 540 is fantastic -> neutral, amazing timbre and unmatched imaging.
There is a thread about the old Sennheisers vs. the 6xx:

For me, most underrated is the Etymotic ER-4S. Most overrated? The Sennheiser HD650.

:cool:

I am in agreement with the Etys. They have been a reference for years and are overlooked compared to the FotM new releases. I replaced mine after 12 years with another set.

I didn't even know the HD540 existed until you just mentioned it.

I have to chime in, I have to.

First, in the commonwealth of the wrong side of the tracks the "wannabe gangsters" is written and pronounced as "wanabe gangsta". 

There are audio engineers and technicians who design and put together headphones because they think that headphones are instruments for listening to music. And then there are geniuses who know better, who have the ability to think 'outside the box' and discover that the audio quality in headphones does not matter at all, because headphones are not for listening to music but for something else.

I wouldn't have said genius's... Anyone can become rich if they put there mind to it and work hard. 

 

What I do see here, is a case of exploitation. The exploiting of the people who made them (or him as the case may be) rich in the first place... Nice. 

 

Some people are artists some are business men...

Overrated - Beats, AKG

Underrated - Audeze LCD-3 - The point is that people say they are not worth the 2000 asking price, Well they are more than worth it. I haven't heard headphones that sound so good. The HD800 are sitting in the corner beside these.

LCD-3 aren't underrated though, I see a lot people talk big about them and are constantly being said they are one of their best. I do see them being said as being too pricey and mainly because of the lcd2 to lcd3 price to performance ratio.

For me, the most underrated is the HD600. They usually don't get the attention and praise they deserve. 

 

HE400 and M50 would be the one I would call overrated.

 

Please note that the above opinion is only based upon my experience with the headphones which I have owned.
