The new Ultimate Ears 6000 sounds pretty darn nice for a "premium consumer headphone".
I did exactly that yesterday.
They were decent I guess. Better than beats solos that's for sure

Apple has headphones on display?

That's what amazes me about the popularity of SOME headphones out there (b).

People ACTUALLY GET TO HEAR THEM before shelling out 300+ dollars for them......

^I'm pretty sure I see lots of Audio Technica's in those too... Or maybe I'm just confusing seeing them on Japanese models, and animated characters/avatars.

...when you cosplay as an anime character to create a legitimate excuse to buy more headphones.

Should I get a K701 or Q701?
I plan to do a cosplay of Mio for an anime expo next year.
K701 = the original, but the Q701 = more modern and slightly refined sonically

Some cosplay nerds might freak out if it's not the K701 =0
But I doubt most people would really notice...

Just get the white Q701, and don't use the green cable. Most people won't notice. Plus, the Q701 is a a funner presentation than the K701.

You agonize over your decision to buy a source weeks after perusing every message board, review, etc. you can find, finally, making a decision and then agonize again when you see another post for a source different from your original choices.

Does the Q701 have a black cable? All of the videos/photos I've seen show a 10 ft. green cable and a ridiculously long 20 ft. green cable.
