Hello~, first time posting here :)
I have some friends who like to spend hundreds on their audio gears and they convinced me expensive headphones are worth it.
So they lent me some of their headphones like beyer dt770, sennheiser hd600, and akg k702. The headphones sounded amazing at first but I learned that I am extremely sensitive to "sibilance". My ears felt like they were being pierced with needles after about 30min of listening. Well, sennheiser hd600 was an exception but without the treble emphasis, it sounded pretty same as my cheap speakers..
So since "audiophile" headphones seem to emphasize treble a lot, which I found out I disliked, would it be waste of money to spend on hi-fi equipment?
