With your ideas on value, I bet you must not even buy toilet paper it would be over ten cents.

Your rent is definitely not a slick deal.
Your the same people that spend $1000 on a hunting rifle, fishing rod and reel, golf clubs, TV and other non inessential items but begrudge someone else in their hobby.

That is an odd reply to my joke. I don't begrudge you or anyone else. I'll even offer you a hug, do you need a hug?

Worth more than 5x the price of the HiFiMan HE4XX?
The answer is always gonna be no for any headphone, he4xx and hd6xx sit at the inflection point for value for dollar

The problem with having a nice set of cans is that everything else sounds shit. You need to upgrade everything so its all on par.

Personally i gave up on chasing SQ. I just stick to a happy middle ground that i can afford.

CNET reviewed these and loved then at $1300, but stated they "are a beast to drive." The review mentioned that one of the only headphone amps capable of fully driving these was HiFiman's own... get this, $1600 EF-6 amp. So, @ $1300 for the cans and $1600 for the amp, you're up to a house payment and a car payment, a house with a 911 in the driveway, that is.

Here's an excerpt from the CNET review:

"The Hifiman headphones and amplifier provide a remarkably direct connection to the music, without adding or subtracting much from the sound. It's as close to "being there" as I've heard from headphones.
The Stax SR-007 and -009 are more transparent and clear, but to my ears those two headphones miss too much of the music's body and soul. The sound is vivid as can be, but dimensionality and visceral kicks of live music are missing from the Staxes. Aerosmith, or any hard rock doesn't connect over the Staxes, but the HE-6 is a total party animal. Play a pure audiophile recording and the HE-6 will bring the music to life. That's why I prefer the HE-6; there's no edge or harshness to the sound. Live music is effortless, it's just there, and that's what the HE-6 does so well."

As everything else is made to be. Consider, the example of Grado's, which claim to be a homegrown family owned Brooklyn based headphone company. Apart from the drivers on the higher tier products, all the components are imported from manufacturers in China.

Chinese products without the appropriate QC are questionable. However, in this day and age, stop with the uninformed opinions of anything Chinese is bad. Almost everything is Chinese/Taiwanise nowadays.

Unless you're ready to pay more than 10x the price on a competing product, truly made in the US, you're looking to get some or all parts of it from China. But if you would be spending 10x the amount, to have a muh-US product, you wouldn't be scouring over Slickdeals in the first place.
Chinese and Taiwanese are not the same

I would agree with that use for over priced air pods because people are just trying to look cool with expensive q-tips hanging out of their ears, but people who buy $700 head phones aren't buying them to listen to poorly encoded MP3s.

Maybe some use for higher bit rate MP3's because the are harder to distinguish from FLAC or WAV files, but that's another debate.
This thread has drifted so far off anyway, care to discuss where to find music that isn't poorly encoded?

Thank you.
