My home ones always put them as far away as possible, no matter where I've lived.

What if the plastic they use is already recycled? Certainly keeps costs down.

it's actually a pretty cool idea, I mean what else would they do with all  the broken pairs of beats people send back.

What about this marketing gem from Schiit Audio:

 

 

 

Quote:

"Schiit SuperHyperUltraGigaTechnology in Every Pair

These cables are made from only the finest 6-nines Unobtanium™ alloy, molecularly assembled in our Alternate Universe™ reality-distortion tesseract field , using a secret geometry reverse-engineered from crashed UFOs, painstakingly smuggled out of Area 51 by deep-cover operatives. Performance is further enhanced by the use of a QuantConnect™ quantum-entangled pair of transmission interfaces, held at absolute zero by our exclusive Stasis Field™ technology. The cables are then wrapped in NanoAeroCap™, a nanotechnology-enabled aerogel anti-capacitance insulation system, featuring Fractal Interleaved Geometry™ to create negative inductance for maximum audio transmission quality."

(seriously though some real marketing texts that are actually serious aren't too far from this. :P )

I really wish I could get myself a Schiit shirt. Nobody else around me would get the reference, but I'd love to show my support for that company.

It reminds me of this legendary Amazon review thread:

Speaking of Schiit audio, how's their name actually pronounced? 

(Literally like S***?)

I'm not sure if the family name is pronounced as such, but I'm fairly sure that the company name takes advantage of it. Don't quote me on that, though, as I've never dealt with them personally.

Yes, they make the joke all the time. As in "You're not gonna believe this Schiit" Or "We got some hot Schiit all the way"

Yesh, I've seen that on their site...
But you have no idea how embarrassing it was for me the other day when I was in a local store kindly asking to try some schiit......
