No, doesn't like either over the ear HP.  He wants the inner ear devices for portability.

probably get him the Westone 3s unless anyone has a better idea?

I ordered a CEntrance HiFi M8 and a pair of Beoplay H6's! I cannot wait to see if they are synergistic!

I have been enjoying the open sound of the Beoplay H3's. The mids are just right for me if not a tad forward. I feel like the bass with the H3's is more pronounced the H6's especially in the upper bass region.

But I will say this: Even in my quick listen, the FORM 2 and the A8 units are an absolute "No comparison". The H6 has got them both covered by a long, long mile - I'm putting the H6 into D5000 territory.

Right, maybe I should get a pair and compare with my modded U70 orthodynamic. Now that's a museum piece, literally and metaphorically.

Cool! I once had a defective pair of U70 and wondered if they sound good at all?

I'll have a video and impressions after CanJam. Sorry for the delay guys.

Anyone figure out a work around for the crummy mic cable...?

Why is a luxury brand bringing out such cheap accessories with their products... does everyone own an apple product now?

I agree. I'm surprised B&O doesn't offer a mic free cable to go with a $400.00 pair of headphones. I am happy to see that Bowers & Wilkins didn't make the same oversight with their P7 and offer both cables.

You're right, they should've included at least two cables, one for smartphones and a longer one for home use. Most other headphones in the price range do.

+1 !

And the 4-pole plug will not fit into my amps without sending the sound through the microphone wire which means that I can only use it directly from my iPhone. :-(

A 4-pole plug should work fine in a 3-pole jack though.

 

There's always this: http://v-moda.com/audio-only-cable/

It's still 4-pole at the amp end, even though it's audio only, no mic
