The core principle of a slippery slope as suggested is flawed.
On a different note, as a person that lives in a mess of popular culture, I agree that the marketing that promotes such products is pretty bad. It shapes an entire generation to be essentially the same people with the same possessions.
I have some reservations for something being hyped as much as the MH1C... as everyone's basically saying these are the best budget IEMs. This feels like a FOTM IEM to me... If I buy the MH1C, I'm waiting at least half a year for the hype to die down first... thanks though.
