You know I read that and I know Tyll is the man but I had to disagree w/ that. Either my product variant was better or I listen louder than he does. I really didn't think it was that bad and imbalanced honestly. I was expecting crap hearing about all the Zounds warnings but after trying them for a few weeks, they were okay. I'd say they compete fine in the $50 bracket and below. I'd take them over the Beats and HD202 for example. Meh.
Just realized that Marshall Majors added a mic and remote for phone users. Great!
