Yeah I know what you mean. It's the general consensus of audio fidelity. Doesn't apply to me though because the sound coming from my headphones is actually perfect for me, yet at the same time I feel this awful guilt by owning such expensive gear that I don't think I should own. My case is rare for typical audiophiles because most of them have absolutlely no regard for money, but I just can't seem to enjoy music as much as I used to. ****ed up part about all this is that I'm having trouble settling with cheaper cans because now that my ears are somewhat trained, I'm more prone to detect flaws in the inferior quality. I feel like I'm caught in a crossfire.

I put up my HD600 for sale on craigslist but I pulled them right back because I can't seem to let these go. I gotta admit they're one awesome pair of headphones.
