I wanted to add a little something to this thread, so here's a nice treat.    Here's the frequency response chart for the Ear Pods           As you can see, these are more neutral than you'd think. Also, they have quite a bit of Mid-Bass but really lack sub-bass - I can't hear the bass drums in Barbossa is Hungry on the Pirates of the Caribbean Soundtrack.    For the price, though, they sound amazing. :)
What's the y-split like on both of these cables? I haven't been able to see pictures of that anywhere :P 
Don't bash on him for loving Bass... The 4.ai isn't the headphone for bass-lovers. :P        I would really suggest that you go for the 3.ai instead. :) Don't give up hope. From what everyone's said... the bass on them is phenomenal.
  Thanks. I guess for the newer CD's I get, where I don't want to keep a lossless copy except for archival purposes, I'll just convert to 320 AAC.   
Hello,    So we've all seen the debate between 256 Kbps AAC vs 320 Kbps Mp3, and while many consider the differences to be almost negligible, people have come to realize that AAC seems to perform better with acoustic sounds, whereas Mp3 seems to handle electronic-sounding sounds better (synthesizers, wobble, etc), just from the different compromises they make when compressing audio.   That's well and good... but what about 320 Kbps AAC? I just noticed that iTunes...
If, by big jump, you mean a massive increase in the quality of sound, not really.    They deliver about the same sound, but with focus in different areas. It's a choice about fun vs analytical  :) 
They are honestly quite good. I say go try them out. You should be able to return them to the apple store within 30 days if you don't like 'em.
Has anyone here listened to both the UE 900's and the Heir Audio 4.ai?    I really can't figure out which one I want more. I like bass, but I'm not a basshead.  Secondly, I've been listening to all my systems with no equalizer, and whatever seems to be the "neutral" setting, but I'm not sure if this is the warm neutral of the 4.ai...   I wish I could demo both of them :P I don't want to throw down $400 without at least trying both. :/ 
  Yes. I love how the mid-bass brings out the weight of the guitar. However, I wish the bass would go a bit deeper. - these would really benefit from truly *deep* bass, because with several of the electronic tracks I have right now, the midbass just punches back which is great for adding weight, but true deep bass is missing, so there's really nothing to add weight to!    For example, listen to Derezzed on the Tron Soundtrack. 
I love these. In the $30 range, you'd be hard pressed to find something better.    The clarity is amazing for something this cheap! :)    A little less mid-bass and more deep (true) bass would be nice. That's my only complaint here, and one that I hope to address when I buy some proper IEM's from Heir Audio.
