Newb32pro is really good.
If I'm reading your sentence correctly, I can relate. I bought the overpriced junk I think you're referring to before and sold it. I agree most of those buyers have not heard properly tuned earbuds but some have. The ones that have heard proper ones, sold theirs too and don't care about the elitism that comes with the name and pricing
Haven't sold mine!
Now all joking aside and being respectfully frank.
What's with this continual and increasingly
condescending tone to your post(s)? The continued use of broad brush strokes which negatively label others who like what you do not? Everyone is entitled to their opinions but not at the repeated expense of others. You have previously posted many helpful, insightful, and thoughtful posts... of a friendlier nature... all of which were sincerely appreciated, welcomed, and enjoyable to read but these more recent (past six months or so) condescending and ultra-negative posts have not been.
Haven't you got this negativity out of your system yet? We all get it mate, you don't like Blur. And that is perfectly fine, but gosh you sure have managed to spell this out quite clearly in many, many, many posts and through negative tags. We get it. Really, we do. You are coming across awfully hell bent in wanting to disparage a respected and kind DIY'er and a nice line of earbuds. You should know, that many of us honestly do not understand why that is and are scratching our heads a bit about it.
You bought (heard) one model and didn't like it. Fair enough. There are a number of Blur models that I didn't/don't like as well. But you have subsequently painted the entire brand as junk without hearing it. Have you at all considered that perhaps the 173 MX150 signature was simply not suitable to (for) your preferences? It happens you know.
How could sub USD 700 earbuds ever be considered as being elite? Earbuds are on average one of the cheapest transducer mediums in the hobby and one of the reasons why many of us like earbuds. I believe you grossly misunderstand why many of us purchase the earbuds that we do. There are many of us here whom have owned and listened to countless hundreds of different earbuds and we each prefer certain ones over others. That is normal. We all have our personal preferences and tastes, simple as that. Just because you may not like something doesn't mean everyone else is wrong, inexperienced, or stupid for liking it. What a poor and horribly negative mindset to have if you ever want to move forward in, fully explore, and/or truly enjoy this hobby especially with other fellow earbud fanatics and fiends.
