That's too bad. The GT600s is one of my fav 100 USD earphones. Hilistening HLS-S8 sounds awesome and it one of the better sounding 100 USD earphones I've got, but they feel cheap for the price. The cable really sucks (thin, poor strain relief and MMCX cutting out ootb). If you can find them on sale they'd be worth it pending you have your own cable and tips to use. Here's my review of the King: https://thecontraptionist.blog/2017/05/12/tfz-exclusive-king-the-king/ thinksound MS02 or Meze 12 Classics are also quite good for under 100 bucks.
