Have you ever once wondered why they are so much cheaper than most stereo headphones made by grado or sennheiser? There is a set of 5.1 headphones made by panasonic that is actually pretty good (but still not as good as you'd expect for their high price), for $900.
So to not "suck" a product needs to be extremely expensive and not be as good as you'd expect? Because that's pretty "sucky" to me.
Just because a product is in a lower "price range" then others on the market, doesn't mean it sucks. You should do some research on the word, "VALUE". Then apply it to a product. This is the key factor of what makes a product successful or not. Ultimately, a consumer will decide if it's a good product or a bad product. lol - Bad Product meaning, "SUCKY".
You're saying, "any headphones under $300's always suck"? What the heck is your definition of "SUCK"? Something that costs less then something else? That's not a FACT. That's an opinion. You're Opinion.
I don't have to wonder why "grado & sennheiser" headphones are more expensive the Zalman Theater 6's. "grado & sennheiser" in a completely different class. A class that my "heaphone" usage wouldn't find any value from. That doesn't make the Zalmans suck. Sure they are less expensive and aren't made of the highest end materials, but that doesn't mean they suck.
The FX-57 is $1011 - The Athlon 64 4000+ is $334
I guess the Athlon 4000+ pretty much sucks right? It's a lot less expensive... Which means it must be made much cheaper?
Some GSKILL Extreme (2X1gig) PC3200 Kits are $250
CORSAIR value (2x1gig) PC3200 Kits are $145
I guess the Corsair VS sucks right?
YOU CAN'T COMPARE TWO PRODUCTS IN TWO COMPLETELY DIFFERENT CLASSES, and say the lowest cost one "SUCKS".
IS this statement true or false?
All Vehicles that cost under $20,000 suck! They are made very cheaply. Cheap tires, cheap engines, cheap seats, cheap transmissions. If you want to humilitate yourself, why don't you go to the www.supersportscar-forum.com
and tell them why $20,000 vehicles are good.
