I don't think purchasing and reselling will do much depending on what you're selling on. Probably not worth the hassle.

Im not tying to make a profit, just get the free earbuds and a good set of headphones. Ill happily sell them for 10 dollars less than 150 (what Im paying) to compete with the used sets being sold on ebay. The goal is to not not spend my money on inferior headphones, and keep the nvx buds.

I still have to try them out before I make a decision... Hoping the m50s are better so I dont have to go through selling them like I plan to

A few Sony headphones and IEMs have some decent value for money I'm pretty sure. I've heard the EX-1000 and I think that they're pretty good. I haven't tried the best headphones out there, and am more of a budget/mid-fi'er, but I think that your worlds are a little harsh :P

The M50s I don't actually know since I have not listened to them. But I did own the Pro700-MK2 and I didn't like them too much so I sold them. What's your opinion on other AT headphones?

What? Bad? Horrible? You saying that is clearly an overstatement. They aren't bad or horrible there is just the fact that there is always going to be better out there. If you were to lower your standards to an average audio consumer you'd understand. M50s and Sony cans are a bang for the buck. They get the job done and cost $150+ They may be fairly hyped but honestly they deserve it.

I am sorry .....I don't own any expensive headphones in particular , my main intention was to caution people who could get a better sound
I have floated around this price range for a long time now , my experience with Japense headphones in General have been that they have a lot of grain which for HiFi applications is just bad and undesirable to listen to
That is why I am recommending the HM5 and the NVX's because they provide more detail at less cost and do almost everything better so I don't know if I said anything harsh there , sorry if you feel that way

I don't hate them ....I like the "AIR" series more , mainly because for vocals there aren't a lot of headphones which compete well with them in that regard
Again I don't know if I was harsh , I was just trying to help people who could get a better , much better sound for less

The grado 60's or 80's are also pretty good from what I hear. The M50's are regarded for their bang/buck ratio ,but aren't the best cans out there. If you spend more you'll get more out.

 Unless you are just talking about Sony's in the sub $350 price range I wouldn't say all Sony headphones are horrible.  Have you heard the MDR-7520's?  I really like my 7520's, they are one of the best portables that I own. They are fairly well balanced and detailed.  Also I'm pretty sure that the people who are lucky enough to own a set of MDR-R10's enjoy them as well and they probably don't consider them to be horrible:)

You could say so ....I always wanted to try the 7520 at least after hearing all the praise about its detail , still I don't know unless its very different from the z1000 which , I don't even wanna start

I haven't heard the z1000 myself but it sounds like most people prefer the 7520's as the drivers are supposed to be tuned differently.  The 7520's base isn't rolled off like the z1000.

 

 

I'm not a Sony fanboy though:)  I also have the MRD-1NC which I think sound horrible.  I don't even have them listed on my profile and had even forgotten I owned them, one of the worst hp purchases I have made.  The bass is overpowering when not in NC mode and it is almost non existent when NC is active.  I much prefer my M4U2's for NC.  I really should try and sell the 1NC's.  They are very comfortable though.
