I guess it depends which angle you come in from. To me, name brands like Sony, Sennhieser, Yamaha, are mainstream companies. Then you have your little niche company's like Tralucent, Noble, Lear, Rhapsodio who to most outside of Head-fi are basically unheard of. I wouldn't of really known about Sennhesier when I started if it wasn't for CX300ii, which at the time I thought was an excellent earphone!
