They do but Sennheiser showed pics or rendering of their Oval tips which they were going to include.  I don't think you can patent the oval shape of a tip but just the specific oval tip design, not the generic shape.  Otherwise I'm going to patent the rectangle right now.

Wow this made me lol. Anyway this, they promised oval shaped tips, but the ones shown are not so oval.

Hopefully they will be released this year.

damn these are ugly 

 

i mostly like sennheisers styles but these just dont do it for me and a £500 dynamic?  hmmm

post #245 of 2327

I think the shape is alright, the choice of finishes is horrible though with that cable and the cheap black plastic etc.

 

I don't have so much problem with the driver being dynamic at this price point - BA's just cant compete with dynamic drivers in some areas.

If you have enough money you can patent anything. Part of Apple's landmark winning lawsuit against Samsung is that Apple claimed Samsung copied the rounded corners of the iPhone on their Galaxy smartphones. I love Apple but this is ridiculous. Apple is the new gorilla in the room.

apple has found that they can no longer compete on a technical capacity, Android phones are cheaper and more capable then their iphone.

So they are patent whoring.

 

on the other hand, sannhaiser has the benefit of the doubt, they always make good products, it always sadden me to see some idiot with Beats studios on and to think he could have had a HD-25II for half the money that PoS costed and he would have had better cans.

Very true. I think Apple is starting to feel the heat. It was only gonna last a matter of time before crashing. As products mature prices gradually fall and competition becomes more apparent. This is something that Apple was not anticipating and its gonna bite them in the ass really hard in the end.

There are exceptions. Apple's 160GB iPod has been out for ions and there still isn't any competition.

You have a point but as SDXC storage becomes cheaper it will become a more feasible option and without being controlled by apple software or having to hack it. Having just internal storage is extremely limiting regardless.

It's short but I thought it useful enough. They certainly like the SQ. We also have confirmation that remotes will be an extra (not included) accessory. Lastly there is finally a picture of the tips (although a further side view would have been nice).

They said the cable is detachable? And the tips looks like it has build in mesh.
post #254 of 2327

The cable is 'detachable' at the Y-splitter, not at the earpieces. (Therefore it becomes possible to have a remote on a different lower cable.)

 

Both the tips and the earpieces have mesh - double protection.

I really dont like the detachable at the splitter idea, only phones ive had with them are the se210s and they felt so bulky and heavy it just wasnt practicle for my use. I keep my player in my shirt pocket at work with the wire going through my shirt etc. i will still probably buy these the second they are available though because i could be wrong and they could be so lightweight that i dont notice. The waiting is driving me mad though, they seem like they could be perfect for my music tastes smily_headphones1.gif
