but serious, k550 is not for portable use,  i don't think newbies would love a pair of 300 gram cans that cannot deliver good bass

Pssh. People walk around with Beats Studios on their head(or as neck jewellery), I'm sure people would use K551s if they had a portable cable bundled with them.

Add Android mic to the petition list A removable cable solves both of these issues.

AKG should slso make these foldable for storage in some way. Either that or include a hard carry case.

They do fold flat, so AKG SHOULD include a carrying case, like most companies do these days. It's a nice addition and a great way to store your headphones!

I've always wanted these, if they had a detachable cable I'd absolutely scoop 'em up. Come on, AKG :)

A detachable cable is very important to the longevity of a pair of headphones. When I see a detachable cable, I know the manufacturer really thinks those headphones will last a long long time.

I couldn't agree more. Well said. Please spread the word. AKG needs to take this issue into consideration!

Even my freakin' K240 has a detachable cable and that's less than $80.

How about a ~1ft pigtail like on the Sennheiser Amperior and Philips Fidelio L1?
That is maybe less strain on the jack at the cup in the long term.

Holy crap, did you just use four exclamation marks?  I have NEVER seen you do that before.  Guessing you don't like pigtails then.
