Yes, I've seen that thread and am subscribed to it. That overwhelmingly positive feedback is what made me consider it, though I'm still a little worried it might just be hype.
I visit that thread quite frequently, though lately it seems like most of the "discoveries" have been a bit pricier. It does seem like a good resource, though.
Thanks for the replies everyone! I'll wait for a few more, since I'm horribly indecisive, but I'm leaning towards the Quadbeat 2 despite the flat cable.
I trust Inks opinion as his impressions on various things I've heard myself seem to be fairly accurate. It is early on as they were recently released in Korea, so naturally you have to expect a bit of hype. For me personally, the massive hype turned me off the MH1/MH1C when that was all anyone could talk about, so after it died down I decided to try them out. Definitely a worthwhile investment - I am hoping the case is the same with the QB 2 as well. If the cable is similar to the QB 1, it's not all that bad. Also, I believe the mic/control has universal functionality with Android devices if that is any benefit to you.
