"Super happy I don't like them because $800 for an earbud is outrageous".
Pleased and disappointed. It was an odd feeling.
I had just heard something that looked amazing on the spec sheet, were incredibly built, but when it came to actual music playback, I was completely let down.
And that's where it counts. If you don't like how it sounds, then all the fancy numbers and shiny materials don't matter.
