How about we keep this back on track to what the thread title is. Any other conversation that’s non-relevant keep to PM.

I don't think a lot of things are worth what the asking price is but I still own them. Cars, houses, some foods.

But don't worry price corrections are on their way. Heck some of these companies may not even exist in a couple of years.

I'll also say this I didn't pay asking price either. I bargained for months before I bought it and got some major price reductions before I bought it. Mark up on these items is about 30% or more depending. So do the math. Dealer cost is about 3850. I'm certain that the majority of you that bought new paid close to full price. Since the majority of you believe its worth it.

Also these headphones are not perfect. They do have some distortion at certain levels. Like many headphones do. Now this is the TC so here's a review on the earlier version which didn't bode well for Abyss. Perhaps they improved these flaws but I don't really see it...

Stop being fan boys and come to terms that its overpriced period. If your willing to pay fine then you paid for an overpriced item that you believe is worth it. You may think in terms of justification eg.. they sound amazing; better than a full speaker setup and brainwash yourselves but its overpriced. Don't believe me if some of you are still on here in 1.5 years let's chat then. Many of these companies will be forced to reduce prices.

Even with the discounts I got which I'm sure the majority of you didn't I still think I its overpriced.


Open your eyes people......

what exactly is the point of this discussion?....to inform us that there is no perfect product and everything has flaws or that price is subjective.....enough f this silliness

Ignore. It is a wonderful feature. I used it a couple pages back and have been enjoying this forum so much more.

Like I've said...the most "speaker-like" headphones I've ever heard! Well done Joe!

Same here. I'm doubling down on my opinion of the TC. It is so good. I am listening to all of my old music again.

The whole pile was more expensive than the car that was used to drive them there! So easy to get sucked WAY into the rabbit hole with this hobby (guilty Guilty GUILTY as charged :wink:

(Bruce is blaring "Badlands" for hour 80 of breaking in my new TC's....can't wait to give them a proper critical listen tomorrow night!)

Any suggestion for setting up the abyss with eye glasses ?

Glasses should not make a difference with the abyss. They actually a made to sound best with a bit of a gap and no seal.
