A headphone which only costs $4k with $1.5k cables great. I'm sure people will learn with a bit of common sense that expensive = doesn't equal the best.
A few examples: Most expensive car in the world is some old Mercedes Benz dipped in gold limited edition around $6.5-8mil, but the Veyron is the otherwise best car (speed, engine block size, design and price) available. Also limited run's each year so don't expect these to be pumped out like your typical Fords, Toyota's, BMW's etc.
Goldmund a Swiss high-end audio company manufactures there own CD/DVD/SACD spinners as well as other fancy stuff such as $180k turn tables, they announced one of there DVD players as the most expensive available back in 2007-2008 $8-11k. Till one person ripped it apart and found it using nothing more than a $350 Pioneer DVD player, everything was identical except Goldmund put the Pioneer in a fancier case and replaced the transformer with a torodial, they got caught stealing from the cookie jar, now these days you don't anything new or interesting from Goldmund because they have scammed and lied to the public. Countless of other high-end companies I can go forth naming.
People bitch about manufacturers charging/ripping us consumers off for too little granted, it's the same people feeding these troll companies. People need to wake the fk up and have some common sense and logic slapped into them. We're going to end up where $8-10k headphones and $15k amp's will be the norm because companies *cough cough* will take advantage with those that like to spend money on hi-fi.
Oh and I forgot about the amount of shills 6moon's has gone through with there reviews folks like Srajan are absolutely clueless with what they review - seriously PRAT? lol
Nobody to blame but ourselves.
