I don’t want to completely lose credibility on this site by admitting this, but I actually enjoy listening to these Syllables more than I enjoy listening to my Sennheiser MTWs — probably because they fit better and I get a much better seal (amplified by the fact that they cost literally 1/10 of what the Sennheisers cost, which appeals to my frugal nature).
Credibility isn’t about having the most expensive gear. Unless you’re the member at an exclusive stuck-up luxury yacht club (who wears white Polo shirts with the arms of a sweater tied around the neck).
It’s exactly what you admitted - being open minded enough to find gear you like, and recognizing that you don’t always have to spend a lot of money to do so. And then sharing your unbiased impressions with others.
That gives you more credibility than anything in my mind.
