$150 more for an anodized, machined-aluminum set of caps is not out of line. The heck with an off-shore piece of cheap nylon, thread and a shoestring. My point is that no headphone - with very few exceptions - came with any sort of bag/container/whatever up until about a year ago. Now everbody's spoiled. If you can't Do-It-Yourself (what a concept!!!) thenget your mother or girlfriend to sew/knit something for you. If that's not just as good, then you're really in the market for the bag, not the headphone.
It's sort of like buying a high-performance car and complaining about the mats. Some perspective is needed about what's important, what's easy to produce, and what's easier to obtain by the customer.
Well, I do know what to say - and was just being "polite" before. I think the criticism is ridiculous, given the features involved. See the above.
Again, I didn't say I wouldn't buy them because of the lack of an included case. I simply said it should come with one at that price. Also, it's not like aluminum ear cups ad $80 to the cost of the headphones. If you think that, you clearly have no experience sourcing manufacturing. On top of that a case would add about $2.50, for a decent one.
BTW, nice cars come with exceptional floor mats. Cheap cars come with none.
