“Not only is the sound fantastic, but you can also replace the parts like ear cups and cords that wear out (or get chewed on by your jerkface cat). Worth every penny,” another commenter confirmed.

One person expressed, “This is so true. Even a $100 pair of shoes makes a big difference compared to Target shoes.” “Bad shoes can cost you more than what you paid if you hurt yourself wearing them,” added another commenter.

One Redditor admitted, “I spent a lot of time jumping between the ones in my insurance group. I got a bunch of doctors who couldn't help me. Finally, I decided to switch from HMO to PPO and went out of network to find a specialist in my disorder. It was the best decision ever.”


Jonahvsthewhale replied, “I'll second this. I'm not embarrassed that I have my boxer brief selection down to a science. I have no clue how other men let their jewels bang around like a wind chime in regular boxers.”


“Yes! I think this is also something you appreciate even more with age. In my 20s, I could sleep in a bathtub and be going to go the next day. In my 40s, I sleep on a mediocre mattress, and my back hurts for a week,” a user commented.
