    For that price i would be wanting a very nice noise cancelling headset that runs of USB with a powered amp driving the speakers in your choice of open of closed back.
    I have AKG K550 MKII, of which I am "quite" happy. Like everything, diminishing returns affect earphones too, but for me those tiny differences in sound can make a huge difference anyway. It is almost like reversed diminishing returns, where everything sounds intolerable shit until it begins to sound tolerable, and from tolerable to great every little bit counts like beyond words. But of course the price is high, however, it is tolerable when gains are subjectively speaking high too

    Regarding cars I have the exact opposite, I am happy to drive whatever crap car.

      what truly matters with audio reproduction is what makes the end listener happy. If you can pick out the missing bits and it annoys you, then that really is the only justification on spending more $

      when I first got into car audio, I saw a set of Dynaudio 3 way splits for AUD$1100 and thought "who in their right mind would want that". a few years in and those same splits were entering the realm of possibility!

        I agree, if it sounds better, then it is worth to get And more, if it looks better and sounds equal, then it can still be worth to get

            Well, let me continue then. If it both looks and sounds equal but feels better, then it can still be worth to get

              I learnt a long time ago that audio gear can leave you feeling very poor if you have poor impulse control!
