That's really a shame that some people consider a can that is comparable to the LCD-2/LCD-X to be undesirable because it doesn't need $1,000 amplifiers to fully enjoy it. If the PM-1 are contenders to the LCD-2 with a Schiit Magni, while people claim the LCD-2 needs better amping, that makes my ears perk up.
I guess some people have money to spare and prefer to make $1,000 headphones sound like $1,100 headphones. Meanwhile I'd rejoice since I could recoup some funds and put it towards a nice vacation. But that's just me.
