interesting findings! did anyone notice any AUDIBLE differences between the original brown and the black ones??
i'm really digging the black ones, cause of the matte finish looks amazing and looks like it would feel amazing (never actually tried it but i did try the brown,it has a sort of a glossier/metallic sheen to it) and i find the black ones easier to accessorizes with my clothes. plus the striking red cables and sticking is quite nice
the brown is very classy! a bit to classy for me, but its definitely a breath of fresh air compare to all the other black blobs (headphones out there), i'm more of a youthful dresser, and i'm relatively young (21) so id rather say youthful as long as i can =) hahaha
but it seems like everyone on these forums have the original brown ones unless otherwise stated, correct me if i'm wrong
An AB/X test is out of the question.
