Oh my god, those are beautiful. Not $1000 beautiful though, certainly not with the sound quality they have.

So the Editions don't deliver?

 

EDIT: I'm not talking about the latest one that, and I quote, "looks like a kitchen appliance".

So basically you pay $700 for a layer of chrome? And it still sounds like shit?

"wow, looks so cool." "Oh my god, those are beautiful." We currently live in a world where looks (read superficiality) are more important than quality. It affects most of what people do and where depth of thought, depth of morals is no longer a factor. It is a world where people are not prepared to question the status quo. What our media deliver, we believe. At least on a forum like this we can criticise and challenge but we are in the minority. I see this as an analogy for what is happening today and the best example I can give is the way that Al Gore's "An inconvenient Truth" was accepted with virtually no challenge and is now driving so many of the world's economies. All I can say is keep promoting for quality over looks.

No thanks.  At least make it platinum plated, chrome is cheap. :P

you can probably get better condition and cheaper if you find someone in china willing to do business like that.

No. Not even $10 Beats. I've recently had the opportunity to sample Beats and Beats Solo in a store and all I can say is people are stupid. Compared to my HD25, these things will fall apart if you so much as scowl at them.
