People need to calm down about the m50s they're pretty good they do NOT beat out cans 100s of dollars more than them anymore.

They were trendy a while back and everyone used to recommend them for starters, so beginner audiophiles and noobs who try them think they're the best headphones in the world.

Also, I think that people don't appreciate enough how great the Sennheiser 558s are, considering that they are the 598s minus modding.

Sennheiser HD800s - way overrated.

When I have an argument and someone disagrees with me, it's their choice. I would not force them to think for a good reason to disprove my argument and even if they do, my time is precious and wasting it on argument, let alone internet argument is not what I deem to use it for.

 

 

 

Still, to stay within thread topic;

 

Underrated: DT990 - it seems to be a despised headphone around here?

You could stop at a constructive discussion of flaws in his argument. You don't need to resort to insulting the speaker; it's a common logical fallacy and is generally frowned upon.

A friend of mine says that they assault your ears with piercing highs.

The HD 700 does have rather unpleasant highs, I found the HD 800 to have piercing highs as well. You need to tailor the system on both headphones to help reduce the brightness.

I supposed that's fair, but I remember when the SR80's were my first "audiophile" purchase, the price difference between these two cans was not enough to deter me from going for the higher end pair. For $100, I don't think you can find a better openback pair of cans (new) than the SR80. I still use them regularly for casual PC listening (out of the regular headphone jack, mostly for videos/Youtube)

I personally found the CAL! to be overrated. Sound wise it was good in my opinion but it was a phone that seemed like it was designed for outside use by looking at the chord length but everything about it was not suited for it. Too fragile, difficult to pack, and terrible isolation. Perhaps if it had a longer cord and made it seem like it was designed for home use it would not be as bad. 

 

I do not find this phone to be the most overrated or anything of that sort but i found it to be some what overrated in general

Yep! I use mine for casual listening as well. In fact, I find myself going back to it for rocks music and I find it comparable to higher end headphones (at around $200) but does not sound as clean as them. I mean Grado can be a lil harsh at the top end at times but still sound great xD

I agree. I'll continue using the terms over/underpriced. I think 60i/80i are underpriced and 325is and up are overpriced. I'm not complaining about either.
