woah...those are some shiny housings, do they actually look like that in real life, or is it just the pics? looks like it came out of a car bumper factory, is it possible that the 3rd party seller rechromed them, gave them more "bling blong"? everything else checks out, the thick cabling, the lettering, but the housing is way too shiny
(Wow that was really fast response, thanks guys) They really do look like that in real life--although the flash from my macbook probably added to that "bling blong"
I was really hoping for the brushed aluminum housing because of its rugged look. Shame on Grado, but glad to hear they're real :)
probably more rugged as well along with better looking IMO...chrome wears awfully compared to brushed metal
I really want to, since the brushed aluminum is better looking, but I'm sort of afraid to do it since I bought them online and online returns/exchanges are a hassle as everybody knows it. Also the seal on the box is broken so mine probably has to go under "used" if they're to resell it. Maybe I should contact the merchant and see if they have the brushed version... Thanks again for your responses!
