I have to say that is some gorgeous construction for a consume headphone. I realize these headphones are in the upper end of consumer head phone prices. But they do remind me of what the original iphone felt like compared to all the plastic phones of the day. I’m really curious if all those chips and mics really do create “better” sound. I really think apple should have included 32gb of flash for onboard music storage. Especially at this price point. It would allow even lossless music to be enjoyed on these.
