Exactly. You can't listen to every review because every review is subjective and often contradicts other reviews. The only way to fix that is to pay more attention to those reviewers who have similar tastes in sound signature as yourself. A good way to find those reviewers is to purchase a couple of the most popular headphones, develop your own opinion on them, and find reviewers who agree with you. Then, in the future, you know you are more likely to agree with them and that can help you decide which hyped headphones you will buy and which you will pass on. I'm doing this now with the XE800, and I've already done it with the 4-in-1. I'm gradually building my "reviewers to trust" list.
