Over 3,400 user impressions can't be wrong, right? We pose the question because Amazon is selling the TREBLAB Z2 for 25 percent below its list price today, and while we have not sampled this headset ourselves, it maintains an overwhelming positive rating (4.4 stars out of 5) from 3,408 user votes at the time of this...
