Why are some people picky about lvl 1/7 buds?
Just curious. I see people trading buds and they bark about not wanting lvl 1 or 7 buds... there a reason for that?

Preference. I'm very sure you prefer some things over others if you had the choice right? Same thing here.

Hmm, I understand people preffering certain levels like 42 or 100 and the like, but I see a large amount of people disliking those particular levels. I thought 7 was lucky number, so I didn't expect it to be devalued.

Usually people don't really pay more or less for certain levels of items unless they are extremely crazy for it or are just trying to be an ♥♥♥. But in the end it really is up to you and the buyer/seller. Sites like backpack.tf are just simply guides to recommend how you should price your items. You don't really have to follow them.

Oh, I understand that. In fact, I don't think backpack.tf even notes a price change on the level difference on earbuds, which is part of the reason I was confused in the first place. If the numbers don't have any significance, and the price suggestors don't make note of it, why such a high number of people devaluing those levels? Guess it's something bud traders know about. I'm not on their level so it doesn't affect me, but I was curious.

Levels truly have little to no impact on pricing if you do not bother about them. As stated, people only jack the price up or down depending on whether they desperately want the item or not. Say, you want to buy a particular item. However, it is one of the few left and you truly want it to the point of death. You would pay much much much more for it right? Exact same rule applies here. TF2 trading works exactly the same as real-world economy.

I think you have this confused with level 1 and 7 max heads. I'm pretty sure people don't want level 1 or 7 maxes because the most commonly known duped maxes have those levels.

Because apparently lvls for hats/miscs/weapons matter that much
