I am looking forward to the PM-3 with a lot of anticipation - it is exactly the form factor I am looking for - closed, portable, hopefully as light or lighter than the PM-1/2, and ortho. I'm ambivalent about the cable. Single sided is a little more convenient in the long run. I am really stoked to have phone controls available. If I could find a cable with a mic and buttons for my 1964 ears ciems, I'd be ecstatic.
