I like the "Keys" because it reminds me of the late great Ray Charles for some reason. I'm not sure what to get as a base color. I guess it could be black, white, red or clear. I'm not sure what color the cord should be either. Black, white or clear.
Finally, I'm not sure if I should get the ES2's at all, but I like the "Keys"... did I say that? And you guys all seem to think they sound pretty darned good.
I had originally (way back when) thought about getting the ES3's despite Westone's warning not to. I liked the idea of having overly exaggerated, forward vocals (and guitars too from what I understood at the time). If nothing else, it seemed like they would sound "cool" and "different" and since I have so many headphones already, different (even if not "correct") is better than same old, same old. But at $800 plus custom art plus the cost of having impresisons done, the actual purchase never felt "right" to me. Things are different now (with respect to the ES2's anyway) because there are so many extremely positive opinions starting to surface.
