Thanks for not being dumb and giving them a 1/5 for audio quality. What version did you have? Sounds like you had the older version and not the newer white boxed version. I think I gave the older version and 8/10 overall score. Newer one would be very slightly higher. It had slightly better mids and a little less bass. Definitely more treble. The soundstage on mine wasn't large, but fairly accurate. I also do prefer the DJ100, SRH-840 and KRK KNS-8400, but I don't do any studio work. They're good alternatives for those that don't want/need emphasized bass. 840 does have a mid-bass hump though.
