    Default Polk Nue Era scores same as B&W P5 and Klipsch Image X10i

    Thought this was pretty cool. Consumer reports just did their headphone rankings. The B&W P5, the Klipsch Image X10i, and the Polk Nue Era all scored 80 points. The Polk ranks 3rd only because they list them alphabetically.

    Well I guess CR is fun to browse through, but I never much like their analysis of any product (Polk excepted).

    Gotta love the Monster Beats coming in 8th.....and Sennheiser Momentum 20???

    Give me a break.

    Beats and Bose rated better than Momentum's? Credibility - gone.

    Kinda seems even more ridiculous to group on ear headphones (e.g. momentums) in with the in-ear.

    The X10i is excellent, but I agree that I have never checked CR for audio reviews.
