Wouldn't mind some more pictures. (Out of the box please?)

 

Could you compare the size to something like an ipod or something? I'd like to see the size of the cups.

Detachable cable is pretty much a MUST these days.

Did you notice the sides of the earphone say "Studio, Club, Stage" with a knurled piece of plastic by "stage"? I wonder if that knurled piece is somehow a selectable tuning port or something of the sorts. 

EDIT: Switchable Bass Boost for studio work to large venues

We knew that. Check the AKG K267 thread for further information.

EDIT: treble is SO good today. Sparkle has sprouted and I can hear the lowermost details (micro-detail) without any effort.

The 167 dimensions are nearly identical to the 267 correct? Based on the press release photos it looks like the headband is the only difference. 167 vs 267 vs m-100 is killlllling me.

I would go for the K267 (I will anyways). I think the K267 cups are bigger due to the 50mm driver (not sure though).

So exciting. Though something that's been nagging me, if the 267's have the little bass trigger port thing, does that mean the isolation weakens as a result?

AKG K167 TI

I'm thinking the 167 are for me. I don't want to pay $300, and the only thing I'm really getting that I want is a detachable cable for an extra $100.

I would be interested in the tuning switch though.

Hmmm.

How much are you going to sell them for in Dec miio? It may not be worth it since I live in the US

That's pretty much the conclusion that I've come to as well. Sounds like the 167 is going to be a great allrounder without having to pay the extra $100.

 

Now the question is, K167/267 vs M100. Now thats going to be an interesting fight.
