    Vsonic GR07 BE build quality

    I've been on the fence for a pair of GR07's for a couple of days, but not sure how long they'll hold up over time.   I'm also wondering which GR07 (MkII or BE) would sound closer to my d2000.

    Cheaper headphones with amp OR better quality headphones

    You shouldn't have to worry about that.   I don't think i've ever heard someone complain about "improper" break in with headphones.   If you played something loud enough to damage the headphones,they would just stop working.   buying used gear is a great way to get good stuff at a cheaper...

    Why so expensive?

    The XB500's were a popular "budget Basshead headphone",but were discontinued (the xb300,500,and 700) along with price gouging. Thus is the life of purchasing endangered headphones.   I don't think the new series is as good,though i could be wrong.
