Purple?  Where'd you get that from?  The only purple I've ever said I liked was a dark midnight purple XD  There's no midnight purple iPod XD

I wonder if it's the Pro Golds and K550 smell.

 

I forgot the headphone that smells like tires... rolleyes.gif

Pro Golds (assuming they'll smell the same as the Gratitudes) smell different.  It's a different smell...  It still smells new, but it's not new car ;P

I'm eagerly waiting for a full-fledged detail review of the 900s. 

 

Needless to say, they look awesome and probably smell awesome too. 

 

Detachable cable may be finnicky. Looks easy to come off seeing that it's a "snap" or direct friction fit rather than any locking system or something to keep it from falling apart. It's not like anyone is going to change cables every day so they should have implemented a better more secure design.

Hopefully my review will be posted sometime this week.

How anyone can say the blue cable and earpieces are cool is beyond me. Naff with a capital 'tacky', if you ask me.

 

I despair sometimes.

post #582 of 4277

when the hell are these things being released?  ive been checking amazon for the past two weeks and theyre still not available for order.

 

i'd prefer to buy the heir audios but want to purchase from a place with a good return policy if i'm ordering $400 iems.  thus the heir audios are a no go and the 900s are next up, as long as amazon gets em that is.

I honestly don't get why the majority of Head-Fi members are opposed to color...  I really don't.  Who really cares what color is used?  Is a black headphone going to automatically sound better than a blue one?  Oh wait, is the red one better than the blue one?  Color is arbitrary to anything and 100% subjective.

I'm not entirely opposed to blue as that is my favorite color. I'd prefer black though to stay less conspicuous. Red, lol I don't think so ;).

IEMs are made to be worn in public places, and because of this most people prefer subtle colors and inconspicuous designs that don't look odd. If you wear a neon blue cable people will notice it, as opposed to a black cable which no one will think twice about. The same was true as the TF10 which stuck out of the ears like Frankenstein bolts, and garnered quizzical looks every time I wore them in public. If you really think "Who really cares about color?", ask yourself if you would wear these in neon pink with yellow sparkles.

 

But for the record I think they look very good.
